I made my reservation for the tour about a month before departure. Even though they were unable to confirm my reservation right away, I was constantly kept updated by e-mails and the tour was confirmed about a week before the tour date. It was well worth the wait. Paul, the tour guide was punctual. The 12 seat Mercedes was clean... More

This was my very first time to join the tour. My first impression is the Van was very Comfortable to me (145cm tall). Paul, the tour leader, is very communicative, informative, humorous, helpful, and very friendly. Since the beginning of the journey, Paul was very active in making the ambiance great. He keep telling story about each location that we... More

Paul was simply awesome! Always smiling, full of historical details and funny annecdotes, he ensured each one of us felt comfortable. The stops were carefully chosen and there was plenty of choice for lunch and dinner. The scenery was spectacular and often jaw-dropping. I will strongly recommend this tour with Paul to anyone visiting Melbourne.

A long (13 hours) but enjoyable trip. Spectacular scenery. Our tour driver/guide Alan, was competent, knowledgeable and entertaining. My highlight was the optional helicopter ride over the 12 Apostles.

Paul leads a wonderful tour. He breaks up a long day with several very interesting stops. He has lots of stories to tell and is very easy to talk to. Very Highly Recommended!

Totally enjoyed this trip, even my fiancé who was hesitant about going for such road trip kept raving about it :) Paul was our guide, totally admired his dedication and energy during this trip! The lunch and dinner was fantastic, we are particular about food, and the food didn't disappoint us! Will definitely go back to join the other tours... More

There are many tours that goes to Great Ocean Road but we picked Escape Discovery Adventures as they are consistently number 1 on TripAdvisor. The pick up was punctual at our hotel and Bruce our guide was such a pleasure to interact with. He made great efforts to ensure that we were all comfortable and got great shots in our... More

This is the second time I went on a Phillip island tour with Paul, and he is one of the best tour guide I've ever had, hands down. I went to the exact same tour, and brought my whole family this time around. I expected I would be rather bored because it is the second time, but to my surprise,... More

This company thoroughly deserves its ranking and previous scores seem highly warranted. We took the Phillip Island and Great Ocean Road tours and were astounded at the high levels of knowledge, experience and service provided. We had two fantastic days in a small group that allowed for flexibility and to have really interesting discussions with our guide. Highly recommended.

Our family of five (kids 13-16 years old) did the Great Ocean Road tour on 7/22/15. There were 11 of us (not including our tour guide Paul) in the clean and comfortable Mercedes bus for the 11-hour day trip. We were provided door-to-door service and picked up at 7:40am at our hotel and dropped off at 9:30pm. While it was... More
