“Food and Wine tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

My partner and I went on the food and wine tour with John who was actually one of the best tour guides I've ever had! His knowledge of the area, it's history, the wildlife and plant life is amazing. He is engaging and entertaining. He went above and beyond our expectations, including arranging for one of the attractions to open up just for us on a day they are usually closed. We will remember that day for a long long time. Thanks John :)

“Pirates”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

John excelled in every aspect of our family adventure along the shipwreck coast. He was extremely personable, understood his product completely, allocated extra time and severices than what we paid him for, and always with a pleasant smile. Nothing was a problem for him. He engaged incredibly well with our smaller children (2-10), teenagers and adults; connecting with each age group to ensure we walked away with a knowledgeable experience. I regard him highly as a tour guide and thank him immensly for ensuring we had an amazing time.

“Great Trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013 via mobile

Four of us, two couples, hired John McInerney for an 11 day trip of the Great Ocean Road, the Grampians, Penola and the Coorong. John was a great guide; knowledgeable and friendly but not intrusive, a very good driver of a most comfortable vehicle which took the four of us plus John and all our luggage easily. He also cooked us two great BBQs! Eleven days is a long time to spend with someone you have never met before but John was excellent company for the duration and we all had a lot of fun together. His knowledge and enthusiasm for the flora and fauna greatly enhanced our enjoyment of the trip and we would recommend him highly.

“Great Guide Very Informative”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

We walked the Great Ocean Road in November - all of it - 8 days of packing everything in and out. John picked us up at the end and transported us to Port Campbell for a couple of days relaxation. We then did a half day tour with John and would thoroughly recommend this to anyone. As we had spent so long hiking we did not have our own transport and this was the perfect way to see the best views along the coast, The Twelve Apostles, London Bridge etc. He tailored our tour to our needs - we needed to finish in Warrnambool. He had a vast knowledge of the history of the area and was pretty good with a camera too - many of our holiday photos are of each other and not often of the two of us so great to get some good pics taken by someone who knows how to use a camera! Would recommend John/Port Campbell Touring Company to anyone - well worth it and got some amazing photos one of which I have had done as a large canvas - a lasting memory. Thanks John!

“Excellent guide”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

We spent 1.5 days with John and learnt so much from him about the Great Ocean Road. We even had the luck to sit in his new vehicle which was very clean. John tried his best to make my 2 year old comfortable and that gave us some relaxation as well. His experience really showed when he explained about the history of the GOR and how the natural formations came about.
