We booked a tour to Philip island. Tina was a great guide. She is so creative and always have jokes :) she is the guide and driver at the same time yet she is able to give everyone the time to do the optional tours like chocolate factory and helicopter ride. We always arrive 10 mins earlier than the big... More

We umm'd and arr'd about whether to travel Great Ocean Road on our own in a car or whether to choose a tour but we wouldn't have changed our final choice - Autopia Tours! We're a young British couple currently backpacking Australia and blogging/reviewing what we do! READ OUR FULL REVIEW OF OUR AUTOPIA TOUR... http://www.howtwogetlost.com/#!great-ocean-road/c1ol7

We booked the Grampians Great Escape Tour on February 15, 2015 for a party of three. We were very excited to see many of the attractions on the tour including Mackenzie Falls, the Aboriginal Cultural Centre, and the Jaws of Death. I would highly recommend that you rent a car and explore yourself, rather than paying for this tour. First,... More

We booked this tour through a tour re-seller online (we did the Great Ocean Road trip), Matt was our tour guide and driver. The bus was comfy and we were picked up from the hotel on time, overall we had a really great time. Great Ocean Road is a day long tour and it think we covered close to 300... More

I booked Philip Island Penguin Parade and Koala Parade last week. The guide picked us with more than 30 minutes delay and we were rushed all day to catch up this delay that kept on increasing picking up the other people on the tours. As a consequence we had really little time at every stop. The guide told us not... More

My friend and I booked the 3 Day Ultimate Victoria adventure through YHA which was provided by Autopia tours. I have to say, that for my first time on any sort of guided tour, it was well worth my money. Our first day was the Grampians tour. Even though we were tired for the 6:50 am pick up, our guide...

OK, the weather was bad, raining and windy, so this will affect our review. The tour was sold by the Melbourne tourist office who did say that it was a bit for backpackers but it advertised other attractions on the way, and lunch, to Phillip Island so we thought we'd make a day of it. We were collected 30 minutes... More

We went on two day tours with Autopia. The first day was the great ocean road tour. The day didn't start off too great as we were picked up AN HOUR late which was frustrating. Also the company didn't contact us to explain why they were late, so we had to ring them which incurred extra costs as I was... More
