Hi Adi, Thank you for taking the time to write a review and for the photo. It is actually compulsory to take rests breaks that combat driver fatigue and helps with energy levels throughout the tour. (I just thought I’d say that’s) Much appreciated Adi....More

Had a great day kidding around with Chris and his sense of humour. We saw koalas, kangas and got tricked into thinking we saw penguins and other such stuff. Cracking time!

When you reserve with Chris, you know who will be leading your tour (it's Chris) and that it will be a small group (we had 12 people), which appealed to me compared to the large, impersonal bus tours. Chris is personable and humorous. He took...More

Chris showed us the best places at the Great Ocean Road. He is very experienced and knows where to find kangaroos, koalas and parrots but also great views. Authentic australian music onboard. This was a great tour!
