All praise to Brian and grace for making our 3 tours a memorable and fun. They charge one of the cheapest around but only have max 10 tourist per car. When my wife lost her coat at the airport, they even brought their own to lend us. Compared to the big boys, go for this instead and you will never... More

Went for the Great Ocean Road and Philips Island Penguin tour. It was really special that even though it's almost a year and I can still remember the special touch the guide gave to each of us. Overall, really well done and really special treatment (vegemite with biscuits and lamginton cake served during tea) and vege meals to vegetarians.

Such an aptly named company! Communications was good and prompt from the point of booking. On the day of the day of the GOR tour we got on a separate car with Grace having 2 very young children in the group. Grace was very accommodating and patient esp. with one of the little ones got sick on the way. Stopping... More

I have been meaning to write this review for quite some time. We toured with Brian on the Great Ocean Road trip in August. We lucked out that the other family canceled last minute and so, we basically had the tour to ourselves. The tour was well thought out. You can tell that they took the time to think about... More

We (family with two boys, ages 9 and 12) did the GOR tour with Brian in late August (nice day with sun and clouds). Brian was prompt in replying when we first inquired about the tour and accommodating when two people in our group had to cancel. Glad that we passed on our cellphone details in advance as he did...

We enjoyed a splendid day on The Great Ocean Road with Brian from a Tour With a Difference. Such a spectacular road! This tour was well planned and hit all of the highlights we hoped to see. Because the tour is very small (no more than 10) it feels very personal. Skip the big bus and enjoy the small group!... More

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
