i went on the tour with Ian and he was an awesome tour guide. He's a great storyteller and also has a good sense of humour. He knew the place really well and provided us with a lot of knowledge too. I'm an aspiring wildlife photographer and I'm glad he was there to encourage me and teach me a few... More

It's quite a feat to make you feel as though you are the only people in a place where there are hundreds of other people but that's how we felt doing the Great Ocean Road Tour with Tour With A Difference. I had a crazy notion that we might hire a car and drive the GOR myself to visit The... More

With limited time in Melbourne but wanting to see as much as possible we opted for ATWAD to experience the Great Ocean Road. The day was long but considering the miles covered it was a great experience and a fantastic trip. Our driver/host was Brian who does a remarkable job driving and commentating, plus his knowledge is 2nd to none.... More

This is a must do!! We went with TWAD (Tour With a Difference) and our driving, Brian, was fantastic! Picked us up at hotel around 7:30AM and returned us around 10:00PM. We had considered renting a car and doing our own thing, but so glad we used TWAD. Brian had interesting stories and explained things along the way. Because we... More

We did 2 different tours with ATWAD, and these tours were the highlight of our trip to Australia! We did the GOR tour with our driver James who was absolutely fantastic. James had so much knowledge about every part of the journey, and all of the landmarks on the way. We had a private Mercedes tour bus to ourselves (we... More

We booked with another company for Great Ocean Road Day Tour. Few days ago they cancelled the tour and I called up ATWAD. They happily accommodated us. On a very hot day (41 degree Celsius) James has picked us up at scheduled time and we were the first to pick. So, we could take the front seats which were easily... More

I took the GOR tour last week with Brian. Seems like he has been on this road a thousand times, he is so well versed with the areas and stops. Provides brillinat info on the way and doesn't let you get bored at all even though it's a very long drive. He does not hestitate to make extra stops or... More

We enjoyed a very memorable trip with Brian of a Tour with a Difference on the GOR in December 2014. The tour was well paced with numerous stops, including additional special details, and with a highly knowledgeable personable guide. Our every possible need was catered for and it was clearly Brian's priority for our fellow passenger and ourselves to have... More
