Had a lovely day here today. It was quite warm and we’d forgotten to take a water bottle. One really kind worker there got us a cold bottle of water and warned us to keep hydrated. Such great service. Shout out to Justin for the water Just-in Time.

I joined to this tour with my 8yo son in December 2019. Chris was warm and friendly guide, and has deep knowledge on the history and nature of south Victoria. We learned a lot from him on the way down to Phillip Island. The tour is packed with visits to interesting and beautiful places but have appropriate free time which we really appreciated. This was one the best load trips in my life. My son were talking about the trip often even now (8 months after the trip). Thank you Chris for your great guide.

I'd award five stars to all three Bunyip experiences, so this review covers the Neighbours Tour (w/Chris), Healesville Sanctuary and Puffing Billy (w/Joel) and Mornington Peninsula Ultimate (w/Alan). Each guide was a consummate professional, offering comprehensive and engaging commentary, and keeping to schedule. The Neighbours tour – with a bonus quiz en route to the studio and an appropriate playlist for the return journey – was a lot of fun for fans of the show. Seemingly, a handful of reluctant 'plus ones' had been dragged along for the ride and I can only assume they were bored to tears. It's something you'd do once, providing you at least know the show. I'd definitely return to Healesville – as I could've spent longer there – and the Mornington Peninsula. I'd be more than happy to rebook with Bunyip (and its sister company, Go West). Also, I must give a standing ovation to Joel, who had the patience of a saint while fielding numerous annoying questions from a couple while he was driving. I overheard this inquisition and his tact certainly didn't go unnoticed. Impressive stamina!

The two-day trip along the Great Ocean Road was an amazing experience! We were very lucky to have Rach as our tour guide, who entertained us the whole time with interesting stories and jokes and was very helpful whenever we needed something! The two days were packed with amazing viewing platforms and places, such as Twelve Apostles. We got to experience and even taste Australian culture in the form of Vegemite ice-cream :) Phillip Island was a great end of the two-day trip, were we got to see hundreds of little penguins along with a stunning sunset. I can very much recommend this trip, whether you're travelling alone, with a partner or in a group. It will surely be an unforgettable experience!

We spend a lovely trip to the Great Ocean Road and the Grampians and saw a lot of wild life (koalas, emus, cangaroos, wallabies & all kind of birds). The views on the great ocean road and in the grampians were stunning and both accommodations really comfortable. Our tour guide Emily did a great job and told us various funny and interesting stories that you do not read in a typical tourist book. All in all, I can highly recommend the trip to anyone...go for it! :-)
