Thanks Steve and Bear (Chris) for friendly, humorous and informative guided tours of the Great Ocean Road and Phillip Island! The Great Ocean Road tour is a really long road trip but with gorgeous breathtaking views of the coastline. The highlight of the Phillip Island tour was certainly the last stop at Penguin Parade where we waited in the cold windy night for the little penguins to emerge from the sea and head to their burrows inland. [make sure you’re well-covered to keep warm including maybe a muffler!] Bear/Chris - thanks for the briefing on safety in the vehicle and what tourists shouldn’t be doing (treading on the burrow-filled hills; why we shouldn’t photograph the penguins etc) - it was a very informative overall tour on Australian wildlife! Encouraged by your briefing earlier, I helped stopped a tourist for using flash photography on the poor little penguins. Great tips for getting up close to the penguins too! Even managed to catch penguins mating in the open as a result! Lol! Hahaha! Hat-tip and kudos to Bear/Chris for quick action on our vehicle that had a leak midway and quickly getting a replacement vehicle for a smooth bus changeover without affecting our tour schedule. Three cheers for Bunyip!
It was really interesting and also the price is very good. The small group was really comfortable and we visited everthing what it can be do in that 2 days and also the 2 tickets, Eureka Skydeck and Sea Life are perfect.
After you had purchase this package, the bun yip tour will sent email to you to double confirm the date you wish to attend for Philips island. The free Melbourne attraction pass you may either collect it on their local office or on the first day of great ocean road trip. The tour guide is very informative, the view along the road trip is great for great ocean road. Throughout the tour before to the main spot, the tour will also stop by a lot of stopover for you to enjoy the scenery. If you are visiting Melbourne, this package is definitely a most commercial and economic choices you have. Everything goes smoothly and i enjoy it throughout the journey. Thanks Viator, a reliable day tour provider.
Both these trips were great - they are done in a small bus so it is quite personal - this drivers were very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. They are long days, with lots of driving, but it is a great way to see this locations.
