3 Day Group Camping Tour - Visit Grampians, Great Ocean Road and 12 Apostles

See the Great Ocean Road, Grampians National Park & the 12 Apostles on a small group camping trip with a maximum of 15 likeminded travellers.

Our trip is done nicely, we stay in private campgrounds with showers and toilets, eat good food and drive around in an A/C Mercedes minibus. We also encourage you participate in many fun, adventurous activities so you aren't just going around in a bus and seeing sites (you will get to do that too though!)

Unlike a lot of tour operators, which have a corporate office and then use contractors as guides, Hop To It Tours is a small, local tour operator, meaning a much more personalised service. We only run tours from Melbourne so we make sure we show you all the best spots.

Our tours are professionally run and will get you to see many of the major highlights around Victoria. It is also timed so that you get to the major spots when other tour companies aren't there, giving us the best chance to enjoy the site rather than fight the masses!

We did a tour with Chris who showed us his favourite places in the Grampians and Great Ocean Road. He completely tailored the tour and pace to us, welcomed us esteemed guests and treated us as friends and family. His vehicle is first class comfortable, driving of the safest standard, catering is top notch and camping gear of foremost quality. He knows the region as his own and you are treated to full days of amazing scenery that will become indelible memories. You must book immediately, and be rewarded with best value, responsible and outstanding tourism, without feeling like a tourist.

Chris was a great host for our tour to the Yarra Valley. His bus was more luxe than we were expecting! He was great to deal with while we organized the itinerary and we enjoyed his company during the tour! We’ll book another with him soon. As one guest put it, our day was a triumph!

We booked onto this tour with less than a week’s notice after a spontaneous plan to visit Oz from Vietnam. We chose Melbourne after finding this tour because we wanted to see wildlife, the Great Ocean Road and the stunning Grampians. It was probably one of the best travel decisions we have ever made. You get to see a bit of everything - mountains, beaches, rainforests, so much wildlife and all in the wonderful company of Chris. He is a meticulous, fun and incredibly informative tour guide and endeavours to deliver a tour which is worth SO MUCH MORE than your touristy, exceedingly average Great Ocean Road day trips. It is so hard to pick a highlight because everything was a memory we will now never forget. As a local expert, Chris knows exactly when and where to stop for the most rewarding walks and picturesque locations, whilst maximising the chances of being able to avoid too many other visitors. It’s an authentic camping experience for those who want to pack in lots of different experiences that the region has to offer. It’s also the perfect balance and excellent value for money for those who love the outdoors, want to avoid the partying backpacker scene , but also appreciate the comfort of a new, comfortable van with WiFi and charging ports!

Going on this tour with Chris is just like going away touring with your mates! Except it is actually better as Chris supplies all the gear & the food & he has all the knowledge of what to see & do. The bus is new & very comfortable. The gear he provides is all new & very good quality. The food he cooks is delicious & you don't go hungry. And the places he takes you include many sites not on the itinerary of other tours. Most people know how spectacular the Great Ocean Road is, but they will bypass The Otways & The Grampians. These 2 destinations are so underrated & I actually enjoyed the experiences that Chris provided us there even more than the Great Ocean Road. The smaller groups provide for a close knit bunch & some opportunity to personalise some aspects of the tour. You come away with a new group of close friends. Great sights, great views, great wildlife & great company in the great outdoors. I can't recommend this tour highly enough!

Thanks Benny, it's not often we go on tour and it feels like you know more than me but it felt that way about some the animals, particularly lizards! It was awesome to learn from you too.

We had a great day touring the Mornington Peninsula!! Breathtaking views of the ocean and the bay topped off with a wine tasting! We loved the fabulous lunch prepared by Chris and he was very accommodating and knowledgeable. The new Mercedes van fit all 14 of us comfortably. We are looking forward to our Great Oceans Road tour on Friday with Chris and Hop To It Tours.
