We took a the tours along the Great Ocean Road, Phillip Island, and Puffing Billy. Not only were the tour guides, Brian and Grace, extremely familiar with what they were doing, they were also extremely warm in welcoming us to Melbourne and very friendly and joyful. They certainly brought a smile to our faces while we were on tour with... More

I travelled with my family of 6 including 2 teens, a young girl and my father who's 70. We joined Brian for 2 full-day tours. For the GOR one, we left Melbourne at 8am. We got off at Bells Beach for morning tea and witnessed Brian's awesome tea swirling skills, had some lovely Lamingtons and Tim Tams and a refreshing... More

During our brief stay in Melbourne we had pre booked trips to Phillip Island and the Great Ocean Road with A Tour With a Difference. For both trips the pick up arrangements at our hotel and tour itineraries turned out exactly as planned. The driver / tour guides were very friendly and informative and the meal options good value. Both... More

Special Thanks to Brian our GOR tour guide who has made our trip an enjoyable and memorable one! He was funny and knowledgeable and we have really enjoyed his company on this trip. I would highly recommend this to anyone who wish to explore day trips in Melbourne. Thumbs up!

Our driver/guide Ian picked us up about 7:00am for our day trip on the Great Ocean Road - it was raining but that did not deter us. Ian shared a wealth of information about Melbourne and the areas we drove through. After about an 90 minutes we stopped for morning tea (under a shelter since it was still raining!) -... More

We were picked up at our hotel in St Kilda around 11:00 am and driven out to Phillip Island for a visit to a winery, a Wildlife Park, a chocolate factory, dinner at a restaurant in Cowes and then to see the Penguin Parade. Our driver, Brian took very good care and the tour was well worth while. It was... More

My family and I decided to have a family reunion in Melbourne recently and one of the things that we wanted to do was to catch the sights and sounds that made Melbourne unique as a family. So we stumbled upon "A Tour with A Difference" and signed up for their private "Great Ocean Road Day Tour" and "Dandenong Ranges... More

We were promptly picked up at our hotel ( As prompt as it can be with rush hour city traffic) by our tour guide Brian. He warmly greeted us and told us all what we could expect to see and do during... More

My wife and I toured The Great Ocean Road with 'A Tour With A Difference'. Brian, the operator / guide could not have been more attentive or knowledgeable (history, flora, fauna, etc.). The small coach (10-11 seats) made the trip even more enjoyable. The tour itself was a wonderful mixture of stunning coastal views and unique towns.The only downside (and... More

We did a Phillip Island tour with Brian and GOR with Ian and they were great! Both Ian and Brian were extremely informative about the tour and Australia. They gave us tips on where to sit for best view of the little penguins and where to take good pictures. The itineraries and food was also very good!
