The nature is beautiful, and our tour guide/driver was knowledgeable and responsible. It was pity for we did get chance to book a sunset trip.
The beauty of Melbourne and its surrounding areas

The changes in scenery from the coast to the rainforest are beautiful. Our driver/guide, Margaret, is enthusiastic about it all. She made the trip memorable. Her food recommendations were also excellent. We had a wonderful time.
A cannot be missed tour!!

While the whole trip was absolutely incredible, I was particularly surprised and delighted by the rainforest! That there can be gorgeous rolling green hills, spectacular ocean views and a subterranean rainforest all within such close proximity to one another is mind boggling! A trip to Melbourne is not complete without doing this must see tour!
Excellent tour

Our guide Hilda was exceptional! Great knowledge and customer service skills. The tour was well paced with enough stops along the way to take in the stunning scenery, have a bite to eat and stretch your legs! Would highly recommend the tour!

Our tour guide Cloe had so much knowledge of Australian history and everywhere we went. Highly recommend doing the tour as driving ourselves we would not have got half the experience that we did. Was so worth it.

My only criticism is that the bus wasn't as comfortable as I would have liked, it was a bit too cramped and the air con was a bit up and down. Otherwise, it was great, the tour guides were fantastic, we were well looked after and enjoyed trip immensely
don't miss it!
