Jeff took us to the loveliest little cocktail bar I have ever been to; like something out of a movie scene. We enjoyed the best cocktails we've ever tasted! We got to see lovely cobblestone laneways, amazing street art and lots of landmarks. He took us to see some bars with perfect views across the night-lights of the city and... More

Our family had a wonderful experience touring Melbourne and the Great Ocean Road with MPT. The city tour gave us ideas for what we wanted to see later on the trip and was a good choice for the first day. The Ocean Road tour was easily tailored to include other things we wanted to visit such as the rainforest. The... More

My family had a wonderful experience with MPT. Our driver and tour guide, Simon, was friendly and knowledgeable. He catered to our needs and was very flexible. The journey was a long one (529km) but Simon told us a lot of interesting information on our journey there. It is evident that he is very experienced and the car was in... More

Our family love our experience with MPT. Our driver, Rhina, was very knowledgable and attentive. He made our experience very enjoyable. The restaurant where we stopped for lunch was outstanding as well. Definitely worth the money!

Peter took us around by car for a full day on the Great Ocean Road. He arranged a short air excursion to The Twelve Apostles as well, which was spectacular. He was extremely knowledgable and lots of fun. His auto was in impeccable condition. Great choice for seeing Melbourne and vicinity on a short stay.

Peter was our tour guide and he was awesome. We visited two vineyards and lunch was provided with a great spread. On our return trip to Melbourne, we were given a coastal tour including a few photo stops.
