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 recently booked this tour after it had been recommended to us. We were not at all disappointed. 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!

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
