Organization was really fine, everything worked out and Tara was a very nice and funny guide. To watch the penguin parade was a great experience, too. So funny and cute to watch the little guys walking along the seaside to their homes. Maybe good to know: Photography is not allowed with the penguins, but at all other events it's no problem. Take warm clothes (windbreaker, scarf and cap) for the penguins, because in late evening/night it gets really cold with the wind at the beach. Not as good as expected the go-together with the Koalas. It's quite expensive to get in touch with them (~30 AUD) for a quick photo - and that's all. No option for stay longer close to them, maybe little feeding or just watch them close. And my photo wasn't that nice, too (couldn't see it before printed :\). So think about the Koala photo (you have to wait in queue -> time loss), but at all I would recommend the tour and do again :)
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.
Our Guide Paul was excellent. I did the tour myself and didn't even feel lonely at all. Our guide explained all the things in detail and covered all the tourist attractions. He is so friendly and caring person. We, three ladies were on tour. He always informed us about the restroom all through our journey which was excellent. And the launch was yummy, which was also included to tour package. Next time, if I visit to melbourne, I would like to have Paul as my guide, operating under Escape.
Half of the reason why we love Melbourne lies in the Great Ocean Road, and half of the reason why we love the Great Ocean Road lies in Paul. Professional, Responsible, sociable, knowledgeable, kind, lovely…… He made our trip perfect. Next time if we have another chance to come back to Melbourne, we still want to invite him to be our guide. Thank you so much Paul and we love appreciate you so much!
This was an amazing day and I enjoyed all of the sightseeing as you fit alot into one day. The tour guide is very friendly and makes you feel welcome and made this a top experience. I would say that he is one of the best tour guides I've encountered
