I'm a resident from Brisbane and I had a really great time in the Escape Discovery Adventures tour. It was my first time visiting Melbourne and I was so lucky to have Paul to be our tour guide and become the first group to enjoy his brand new custom outfitted vehicle. He was so nice and professional. I've recommend him... More

I had a fun and unforgettable day trip to Philip Island with Paul for my Nov - Dec 2014 trip in Melbourne. He had some problem reaching me as I forgot to update him with my Aussie no and it took him days to finally reached me after I realized it and left a msg in his voicemail. All went... More

Having taken a number of tours in our time in Australia, this trip with Paul was simply the best. He is engaging and extremely knowledgable, giving the four of us a tour that we will remember for a lifetime. The small touches along the way (snacks & stories) were unexpected and only added to the terrific experience. Our only regret?... More

I chose to book this tour based on the reviews on trip advisor. I wanted a small tour with an experienced guide. Paul didn't disappoint!! From the moment he picked us up in his brand new vehicle I knew I'd made the right decision. He was full of knowledge about the area and Australia in general and took time to... More

We spent a long time deciding on who we would use to do the Great Ocean Road trip. We went with Escape Discovery Adventures based on the reviews. Paul was superb. We were picked up exactly on time and spent an enjoyable day spotting kangaroos, koalas, giant killer snails in the bush and of course the stunning 12 apostles and... More

You get more than what you pay for. An extremely great way to see the Great Ocean Road. Firstly, it's a small tour and our tour guide, Paul, gives plenty of attention to your questions. Also, we got to go to locations that bigger tour buses wouldn't have brought you to. Secondly, the places we went to eat were fantastic!... More

He is very knowledgeable and funny. He took good care of each of us in the group. The trip was a long one and packed... More

We had a great time on the Great Ocean Road Tour. Bruce was a fantastic guide and we enjoyed his stories and sharing of history for the different towns and regions that we drove through. This trip was more than worth it and we'd recommend it to anyone travelling to Melbourne!
