    Stop: 2 hours - Admission included
    Stop by an Aboriginal centre for a gourmet morning tea with an Aussie flavour. Hear didgeridoo, learn to throw a boomerang and check out indigenous art from around the country. Admire world class surfers in Torquay, the home of Rip Curl and the Rip Curl Pro Bells Beach. Be consumed by the scents and sounds of native eucalyptus forests. Learn about the 700 different varieties of gumtree, about wallabies, carnivorous snails and early explorers. Enjoy a cafe style lunch in the backstreets of Apollo Bay, away from the tourist droves, or try something more elegant at a seaside seafood restaurant. Feed wild parrots, spot koalas high in the treetops and search out a mob of local kangaroos. Take a guided walk at the Apostles and hear the stories which have granted the ‘Shipwreck Coast’ its perilous title. Break up the journey home with a stop for afternoon tea and some delicious Aussie treats (or skip the whole thing entirely and return on a spectacular scenic charter flight).

James was absolutely amazing. We saw wild kangaroos and Koalas. He knew all of the local spots to grab excellent coffee, cakes and a fabulous seaside lunch. We also did the city tour with him and had the best day. Can’t say enough about James. He is warm, passionate about his city, and takes you off the beaten path. If I could give more than five stars I would.
His card reads… Authentic, local experiences for people who don’t like tours.

Legit best tour my wife and I been on. Martin was an amazing guide! We saw koalas and kangaroos in the wild and got super close. Martin our guide did a great job bringing us to the best local spots for lunch on the water and best views of the 12 apostles. I couldn’t of had a better time and for a 12 hour tour it felt like it was only a hour. Anyone who decides to do a Viator group tour over this is making the worst decision. Pony up the extra bucks and thank me later! Thanks again Martin!

Bianca the great Koala spotter took us along Ocean Road to the 12 Apostles. Amazing day, wonderful, happy and knowledgeable guide and really special sights including over a dozen koalas in the wild which Bianca excelled at spotting and was so gracious to allow us extra time with them even though it made her late off work. Such a sweetheart and highly recommend

If we could give Josh more than 5 stars we would. We truly felt like we were spending the day with a friend who was very knowledgeable about the area and was excited to show it off to us. He tailored everything to fit our needs and made us feel very special along the way. We highly recommend this tour group!

We had a great tour with Sam our private guide. He has a lot of interesting information about the history of this part of Australia as well as nice stories about Australian life incl. the Flying Spaghetti Monster. Although our helicopter flight back must be canceled, he drove us safely the long way home. Excellent day!

We had the pleasure of exploring The Great Ocean Road one day and then touring Melbourne the next with Bianca. What an absolutely amazing tour she created for us! She is incredibly knowledgeable of the area and answered our endlessly questions with ease. She knew a couple secret spots to make the tours memorable (koalas and a cool train bar). It was more like traveling with a good friend than a tour guide. Would love to work with her again one day...highly recommend!

We were so lucky to have Josh for both a tour of Philip Island & a drive along the Great Ocean Road!! After a couple of weeks touring other places in Australia, Josh was the first guide who knew exactly the right areas to show our family wallabies, kangaroos, and koalas (among others!) We had seen these wonderful animals in the Sydney Zoo as well as some wildlife parks, but not actually in the wild! This was definitely a bucket list item for us, especially because tragically we couldn’t visit Kangaroo Island.

Not only was Josh incredibly personable during the tour, but also he went above and beyond giving us thoughtful & thorough recommendations for the days we were there (sadly) without him. He was able to connect with us about so many other topics during the ride and we now consider him a friend.

Josh was the essence of what you expect from a tour from a local - he grew up in the area, and had so much interesting insight for everything we were seeing on the long drives to both destinations. We learned far more than we could have if we adventured to these areas ourselves and we would have never known to stop off at beaches, restaurants, and roadsides to get the most out of the experience.

As a family who has used guides all over the world for many years, Josh was truly a world class guide and we couldn’t have asked for better! Thank you, thank you, thank you!! :)

We enjoyed two full days tours with Localined Private Tours 0412386788. The tours were the Great Ocean Road and full day Melbourne food Safari. It was fantastic. Our guide, Sam Gudgeon, gave us 2 wonderful days. Sam was personable, attentive, informative,and adaptable. We highly recommend Sam and the tour company.
