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. Our quest to find a private driver for our one day tour of the Great Ocean Road began by contacting three companies listed on the internet. At... More

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

So happy you both enjoyed the customised wine and penguins tour. We really enjoy designing new experiences and the Mornington Peninsula wine region works fantastic when combined with the penguins. Thanks for taking the time to write a review. Cheers Garry and Shirley More

I went on the day tour of Phillip Island with Garry and Shirley and I'm so glad I did. It surpassed any and all expectations. Nice people that provided anything you'd ever want to know about Australia and the sites. By the end of the trip I felt like we'd been friends for a long time, that's how personable 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. Our tour of the animal sanctuary was truly a history lesson of native Australian animals and feeding the kangaroos made me feel like... More

Where do i begin this review. This tour came at the end of our 12 day Oz trip, but we were awaiting it since the day one, since our group consisted of a couple of super-excited 5 year olds, who wanted to see the penguins & the Roos. We chose the one day Phillip island tour, while based in Melb.... More

We booked the two-day Great Ocean Road tour and it was a lovely experience. I've been to the Great Ocean Road several times before, but Garry made this visit especially interesting, peppering our conversations with bits of history, geology, dark-and-stormy-night stories and animal facts. Somehow he managed to drive (very safely), recount the history of the area we were passing... More

We've spent a great day with Garry in Great Ocean Road. I have no hesitation to recommend Longhorn to anyone who would like to see a diiferent Great Ocean Road, away from the crowd, and enjoy a nice ride on a new Land Rover. Garry's experience and commitments in his job have make our trip memorable.

Two things I would recommend to GOR tourists - 1) If you really want to enjoy it and make it informative tour rather than outing then take 2 day tour. 2) Do it with Garry the owner of Longhorn tour. You will love seeing the same terrain in the evening as well as in the morning. Visiting Oatway and few... More

After some vigorous internet searching we found Longhorn tours and after seeing the tripadvisor reviews booked for the one day trip along the Great Ocean Road. The tour has been really well thought out and packs in a lot, great views, information, wildlife, cake and lunch! Thoroughly recommend!
