A long overdue review. Paul is an organized, engaging and dedicated guide who never fails to tickle your spine. He knows his Australian history, geography and politics at his fingertips. It's a great experience and highly recommended for everyone :)

Went on the Great Ocean Road tour and it was excellent! Minibus was spacious, food was great and the sights were stunning, but what made this stand out was our guide Bruce. He was really passionate about his job, full of facts, super entertaining and went out of his way to accommodate our needs (stopping for loo breaks, ringing ahead... More

This is our first trip to the Mornington Peninsula Spa. It was fantastic, the massages we had were great and the spa's outside were brilliant. It's so private with the surroundings and it was not over crowded when we were there. We had a fantastic day. Certainly will go back again.

All agreed a fantastic day was had by all on the Great Ocean Road with Escape Discovery Adventures. The site seeing was amazing as this included entertainment by a wandering koala, lush temperate rainforrest and of course the spectacular Apostles.

Decided to sign up with Escape Discovery Adventures for our visit to Philip island. The mini van came and was equipped with water, blankets and even wifi. Paul was knowledgable yet shared the facts in an interesting manner. Upon knowing that we wanted to see some koalas and kangaroos, Paul brought us to a free range park on Philip island..... More

We completed the one day Ocean Road tour with Paul and had an amazing day. Paul is an excellent storyteller and has a great memory for names. It felt like we were on a very intimate, high end tour and pricing was competitive with other options. Package was all inclusive of tea, lunch and dinner and the food was good.... More

Don't want to rent a car? Want to do more than watch the penguins? This tour takes you to a great private wildlife preserve where you can feed and pet rescue animals and see a great selection of what Australia has to offer in terms of wildlife. Then a beautiful coastal drive and walk-around, followed by the finale of penguins.... More

Had a wonderful experience on a day tour of Great Ocean Road. The adventure, thrill, fun, camping, heart stopping sunset view along the way and many more water fun. I just completely enjoyed. Hope will look to it forward in upcoming trip.

Am just back from probably the best personal tour that I have ever been on. Escape Discovery Adventures is a great tour company. No more than 11 guests on these SUPER comfortable Merecedes buses. The host for our day was Paul, who from the moment he picked up all of the guests displayed a genuine jovial attitude to not only... More
