So great to hear you enjoyed your tour so much. Your excitement for a koala experience was infectious and seems like Moonlit Sanctuary delivered for you. Good to hear you also loved the Ultimate Penguin experience it really is the best way to see these amazing creatures. Thanks for writing the review and enjoy the rest of your holiday in... More

The focus is on YOU, the traveler whether you want to see wildlife, enjoy scenery, hike--it's all up to the client. My husband and I took a day tour along the Great Ocean Road. We had a wonderful 12 hour day seeing birds, kangaroos, wonderful scenery, even tea overlooking the beach. Couldn't have been better. I found YOUnique Tours on... More

Two couples did a 3 day tour with Longhorn YOUnique Day Tours, Great Ocean Road from Melbourne to Adelaide. While one of us was comfortable and experienced driving on the left, we decided that driving and navigating would detract from our ability to view the scenery. Garry gave us so much more, taking us to spots that were not accessible... More

Our approach is to customise our tours and we believe that works for our clients and makes life interesting for the guide! So glad to see you all enjoyed the tour, accomodation, meals and wildlife experiences. 3 days does allow the time to see a wide range of Australian wildlife. I really enjoyed meeting you all and appreciate you taking... More

My husband and I did a 3 day tour with Longhorn (2 days on the Great Ocean Road and a day in the Grampians). As background , we sometimes do tours but often go on our own to places. Being American, we were hesitant to drive on the "wrong" side of the road. We are so glad that we went... More

Thanks Janet for writing your review and quickly too!! We appreciate the recommendation. Great to see you enjoyed the tour so much and particularly the Otways which are missed by so many people who only do 1 day on the Great Ocean Road. In our view they are a real jewel!

We went on a private full day tour of the Great Ocean Road with Garry. This was a wonderful experience and we couldn't think of a better way to see the sights. Garry picked us up in his clean and comfortable vehicle and took great care of us from the early morning through the end of the evening. He did... More

January 12th, 2015 “Twas a dark and stormy night”. So begins one of Gary Hamel’s yarns of shipwrecks along the treacherous coast of the Great Ocean Road. But, I am ahead of myself.

My friend and I were looking to combine the mornington peninsula with Phillip island. This was not a tour that any company had - maybe wine and penguins sounds strange to some? Garry and Shirley were willing to customize a tour for us at a very reasonable price. The day was perfect, we stopped at 3 wineries to taste and... More

On Sunday November 30, 2014 we took the Puffin Billy Tour and it was a lot more fun and excitement than we expected it to be. Gary was super nice and very informative of all things Australia.

Where do i begin this review.
