Featured guest review:

‘I had a great time on this trip. Carla was an amazing guide. We were taken to multiple lookout points where we got great views of the surrounding scenery. We also did a few walks including a hike to the Mackenzie waterfalls. A highlight of the trip was seeing the kangaroo joeys resting in their mums pouches. You can’t get more Australian than that. Although there was a lot of driving involved, the day went really fast and I never found myself getting restless. Definitely a really fun day out.’ Cam

    I had a great time on this trip. Carla was an amazing guide who was clearly passionate about her job and happy to answer any questions. She made an effort to speak to everyone and was energetic throughout the whole day. We were taken to multiple lookout points where we got great views of the surrounding scenery. We also did a few walks including a hike to the Mackenzie waterfalls, which was absolutely beautiful. A highlight of the trip was seeing the kangaroo joeys resting in their mums pouches. Can’t get more Australian than that. Although there was a lot of driving involved, the day went really fast and I never found myself getting restless. Definitely a really fun day out. Highly recommended.

    I booked a 1 day Grampians Tour as I had previously done a Great Ocean Road tour and loved it and the Grampians has always been a place that I have wanted to visit whenever I have visited Melbourne in the past but never had the time until now. The tour guide Dave who picked me up and dropped me off back at the hotel, was one of the best tour guides I have come across. He was a friendly guy with a great sense of humour who knew everything about the Grampians and made the effort to get to know everyone on the bus and where they came from which was a nice touch. Got to see great views of the Grampians and had a great day out.

    We drove to several lookouts with amazing views. We also did a little bit of walking, but not more than 3-4 km. We went to Mackenzie waterfalls. It was very beautiful! This is a very good tour when you love nature. Although it takes 4 hours to drive from Melbourne to the Grampians, it’s worth it!
