Peter took us to Phillip Island last Saturday and we had a great time. He was punctual, knowledgeable, friendly and funny. The Penguin Parade was fabulous and we had a very nice dinner with Peter afterwards. I highly recommend MPT and Peter!

Kate Storr, our tour guide,was wonderful and definitely knowledgeable of all sites. Started out doing a culinary tour with Kate & Allan which I highly recommend. 2nd day Kate took us on the great ocean coastline drive, then we flew over the 12 Apostles. I would definite recommend this tour, especially if your time in Melbourne is short.

We had a great day tour to the Yarra Valley with MPT. The day was well planned out and we never felt rushed. John was very informative and was very good with the four young adults we had with us. Our lunch at Tarra Warra winery as part of the tour was amazing.

We took a tour from Melbourne to the South Coast of Victoria with MPT and then joined a light aircraft to fly over the 12 Apostles. We wanted to see them before they all disappeared. However it seems that nature is also in the process of creating new ones. The trip down was enjoyable, largely due to the good companionship... More

Despite this being my first time in Melbourne, I feel as if I have lived here for quite some time after having taken the day tour with Peter. It's quite incredible how in four hours I learned about Australia's, especially Melbourne's, history all the way through present day life here. Along with receiving tidbits from Peter for the remainder of... More

A long day but well worth it!! We did a day tour of the Great Ocean Road with Simon last Sunday. Wow!! What an experience. It was well organised, food stops were great and Simon was very knowledgable. Definitely recommend this company and tour.

Yes you're right the Great Ocean Road tour is a long day, but so worth it and that's why a private tour is the best way to see it - so you can get the most out of this day. Thank you so much for your review and we're so happy that you had such a great day with Simon. More

We were only in Melbourne for 5 days, and this was mainly a trip to visit universities in and around the city. However, we did decide to do a half-day tour of Melbourne to get a feel of the place. Vehicle was spacious and comfy for a group of 5. Our guide, Peter, was a 5-star guide. It was great... More
