We were lucky enough to do this tour on the one beautiful sunny day in a very rainy week. Our tourguide, John, was a very cheerful host who made sure we had a great day. We went to all the touristic highlights but we did it just a little different than the mass, which I really liked. We saw kangaroos,... More

We did the Great Ocean Road tour and were very impressed with the knowledge of our guide, John. It was a long day but very relaxing. Highlights for us were that the food was great, the bus was small and very comfortable, and due to the small numbers there was flexibility in the itinerary and stopping times.

We did both the "Great Ocean Road Tour" and the "Philip Island Penguin Experience" with this company (hosts John & Paul respectively). Each tour was very personalized with a small group. Each host was flexible in how much time we spent at each stop along the way (within reason given the sunset dictates the final stop for Great Ocean Road,... More

We did the Great Ocean Road trip with you on 14th July 15. It was a long day 7.30 till 2130hrs. Totally worth while. Had a great day. Enjoyed the smaller group and the 12 seater bus. John was great full of knowledge and passionate about the great ocean road. He was very welcoming and made it a wonderful trip.... More

Just got back home. I must say it was a fantastic experience on the Great Ocean Road with Paul Anderson leading us. He was both friendly and professional. Everything went perfectly. I will not hesitate to recommend Escape Discovery Adventures to my friends and contacts in future. Well done, Paul....keep it going !!!

Considering that you spend most of the time in a van on the road, it's easy to find something to be unhappy with. Bruce was a charming guide with lots of information to share about GOR, Melbourne and greater Australia. He is extremely knowledgeable and loves what he does and went the extra mile to give us an authentic feels... More
