I took two Groovy Grape tours (Great Ocean Road and Kangaroo Island) and was fortunate that both tours had a mix of ages as I am a bit older than I expected the others to be. I really thought I was going to be with a bunch of teens or 20 somethings, and that just wasn't the case. The tours are backpacker class tours and the accomodations are hostels so you will be sharing a room with several others. Some of the accomodations were much better than others. The hostel on the Great Ocean Road tour by the Apostles was pretty rough. But, the hostel in Halls Gap was fantastic. The hostel on Kangaroo Island but Hanson Bay has real potential if the rodent problem gets resolved. Penny did a great job with the food on the Kangaroo Island tour. Everybody pitched in to get a great meal on the table. Be forwarned that if you do the Kangaroo Island tour, you will probably be required to carry some heavy load as all provisions need to be transferred on and off the ferry. It would be too much for a single guide to handle on their own. I was actually surprised at how much the guests needed to do on that tour as it wasn't the case on the Great Ocean Road tour. Maybe it should be better advertised as interactive. It was no big deal and it seemed that everybody enjoyed the communal atmosphere -- just unexpected. On both tours we saw an abundance of wildlife in natural habitat. All in all, the places each tour went were great, the guides knew their stuff and if you are up for the adventure, you are sure to have a great time.
