We , a group of 13, travelled to Melbourne from 16th to 21st March 2009. We engaged the services of Around and About Travel & Planning to bring us around in Victoria, namely to Dandenong, Great Ocean Road, helicopter ride and Mornington Peninsula. The service provided by Around and About is personal, and wonderful. The rates are value for money and you get to travel within your own group. No hassle, and easy to control the time you want to spend in different places. The in-charge, Walter Edgar is warm, honest and sincere. I strongly recommend Around and About if you are travelling in Melbourne.
Besides, we had apple picking, hot air balloon by Global Ballooning and farmstay in Laurimar Glen. We had a great time in Melbourne with great experiences and wonderful scenic attractions, beautiful memories made possible by Walter Edgar from Around and About Travel & Planning.
The farmstay in Laurmar Glen, hosted by Janet & Eric is a genuine farm experience with lots of animals. A BIG farm where Eric drove us around in his pick-up to feed the animals and the children loved the hands-on experience. The meals prepared by Janet was very delicious. She even prepared Asian style cooking and accomodated our special request. This is so far the best farmstay experience we had in Australia.
Melbourne indeed offers a diversity of experience, the Victorians are warm and courteous. The scenic attractions are beautiful and unique.
Overall, the trip we paid is very much value for money and much lesser than you compared with travel agents package which travel in big groups.
