We went with A Tour With a Difference (ATWD) for our Great Ocean Road trip. The company is aptly named indeed; because they go in small buses which can sit 11 excluding the driver and the actual number of guests on our trip was even smaller at 10. For our particular tour, Brian was our guide and driver. His experience... More

We went on the Great Ocean Road tour with Brian and had a great day! The whole process was easy from the beginning to the end, and Brian stayed on top form throughout the whole day, providing commentary all along the journey - he has an encylopediac knowledge about Australia and the GOR, and kept us interested and entertained the...

My partner and I went on the Phillip Island Tour on the 7th May with Grace as our tour guide. We really enjoyed our stop at the winery, Grace had a great set up of cheese, breads, crackers, fruit and wines, with beautiful views and to top it off the weather was great. We then went to the chocolate factory... More

A difference indeed, first contact by email ignored, second ignored, next I called only to be told.... “we don’t have any wine tours”, when I said it’s a month away I was told to email (again...... really?) Brian to see if he wants to put one on (one a month really?). Finally an email with an apology for the delay... More

We very much enjoyed this tour, picked up from outside our accommodation and dropped off their in the evening, despite it being an airbnb place and a little out of the way. Our guide, Brian, was fantastic, and very knowledgeable and informative. We went to some great sites during the day, was a nice lunch stop, with good wine and... More

We did one-day Great Ocean Road tour with ATWAD in Feb 2015 (sorry for the late review!). We had booked this tour with Brian at 2-days notice and he was able to get all the processing done and was at our hotel to pick us up on the day. It was an exciting day and Brian was very good at... More

We took a the tours along the Great Ocean Road, Phillip Island, and Puffing Billy. Not only were the tour guides, Brian and Grace, extremely familiar with what they were doing, they were also extremely warm in welcoming us to Melbourne and very friendly and joyful. They certainly brought a smile to our faces while we were on tour with... More

I travelled with my family of 6 including 2 teens, a young girl and my father who's 70. We joined Brian for 2 full-day tours. For the GOR one, we left Melbourne at 8am. We got off at Bells Beach for morning tea and witnessed Brian's awesome tea swirling skills, had some lovely Lamingtons and Tim Tams and a refreshing... More

During our brief stay in Melbourne we had pre booked trips to Phillip Island and the Great Ocean Road with A Tour With a Difference. For both trips the pick up arrangements at our hotel and tour itineraries turned out exactly as planned. The driver / tour guides were very friendly and informative and the meal options good value. Both... More

Special Thanks to Brian our GOR tour guide who has made our trip an enjoyable and memorable one! He was funny and knowledgeable and we have really enjoyed his company on this trip. I would highly recommend this to anyone who wish to explore day trips in Melbourne. Thumbs up!
