I went to the Great Ocean Road trip knowing that it will be a small group which is important for me in terms of being able to socialize on holidays. And, the trip didn't disappoint. The arrangement done by Paul(the guide and host) was excellent. Paul was very welcoming, warm and an enthusiastic host and guide. He was very very informative about the location history, culture and tradition of Australia and very entertaining and approachable. The price maybe a bit expensive than other tours but trust me, it is totally worth it. You don't have to go with huge crowds and Paul was very attentive to everyone's comfort and satisfaction. I know what I'm going to get out of the trip the next time I travel along with Paul and I'm looking forward to it.

The trip was amazing and the weather cooperated at just the right times for me to take some great photographs while on tour. Paul the tour guide went above and beyond and was so knowledgeable and full of historical stories; it was a true learning experience. The trip is amazing value for the incredibly memorable and small group experience. I would recommend this tour for anyone!

Excellent and fun tour. Paul was so accommodating for everyone on the tour - going above and beyond for us to enjoy it. Paul’s informative commentary also was excellent. Lunch was beautiful - a truely wonderful tour day! Highly recommend this tour. The scenery was breathtaking.

I had the best day with Paul. He was very thoughtful about making the most of the day and also flexible to accommodate my interests. I also was extremely appreciative he was willing to still run a group tour despite the fact that I was the only person on the tour, due to covid.

Great tour, tour guide was funny and had a lot of humour highly recommend him Paul his name make it fun even though the trip is pretty long.
