I did this trip on my own and was quite worried I wouldn't meet anyone. I met loads of great people who I still stay in contact with! Our group had a total of 19 people between the age of 20 and 70-ish. Our tour guide Ash was great, he was very very very knowledgeable, friendly and easy-going. I highly recommend this trip!
We were only in Australia for two weeks. We traveled to see the Australian Open and we have some friends who live in Adelaide. This was the perfect tour. The tour picks you up from one of the various locations in a smaller bus (seats about 20 or more). The bus is tight but there is room for a backpack and a piece of luggage. You depart from Melbourne, and if you are lucky you will get Peter. He was an amazing tour guide. As we traveled along the great ocean road, Peter made many quick stops for photos and told us about a lot of the history. You get great views of the ocean, stop in a portion of the rain forest all on the first day. The accommodations are pretty great for the price. You get a couple lunches and breakfasts, and dinners, and you will stay two nights in a hostel with shared rooms. If youre a couple opt for the private room, its like $20 AD extra or you could pay a little more and get an actual motel. We saw wild koalas, emus, lizards, kangaroos and wallabies. I dont like animal sanctuaries or zoos, so seeing them in the wild and up close was an amazing experience. The twelve apostles were amazing and so are the water falls. The hike in the Grampians was very beautiful, but you should be aware that it is a long hike and very steep. Pack lots of water as it was like 110 degree F. Most of our group couldnt make and decided to wait for the rest of us to finish. But the view is totally worth the hike! Overall, this was an amazing experience. If you are short on time and you want to see a lot I highly recommend this tour. And I can not stress how good our tour guide was. Peter was so friendly and an expert on a lot of topics. He played great music and made sure everyone was having a good time. I was skeptical of this type of tour, but I would use Wildlife Tours again, because I felt like we got our moneys worth!
Great tour, very busy and a lot of activities packed into 3 days. Guide was brilliant. Would like to see more tours with less hiking involved as the trip to the Grampians was quite demanding and I feel easier options need to be made available for those who do not wish to hike or cannot due to health reasons. The accommodation was good for the trip and the bbq was brilliant. I feel breakfast and lunches could have been slightly better and had some juice included.
We completed the 3 days GOR and Grampians tour. The whole experience was excellent, the tour was well organised, the accommodation was good for the price and the sights were amazing. Special mention to our tour guide Guy who really made the experience, he was very approachable and friendly and shared lots of facts along the way. Would definitely recommend the tour to anyone wanting to travel the GOR.
