What people are saying about Melbourne

Our guide, Matt, happened to be the owner of the tour company and could not have been a better companion for the day! He was so friendly, knowledgeable and funny. We saw koalas in the wild and had birds land on our arms. The views were amazing, and there’s so much more to see than just the ocean. Overall a great day for our family.

It was a fantastic tour. The William Ricket Sanctuary is amazing, would love to go again. Our walk in the cool tempered rainforest was refreshing and we saw some huge trees. Jay our guide was very knowledgeable and we were able to understand the story behind the sanctuary very well!

Great value for money tour with plenty of wine tasting, a good lunch and a chocolate ending. Really enjoyed Soumah winery, but the Helen and Joey lack of service and wine knowledge made for a very poor visit. Hope the Wine Hope crew take them off the list for future tours.

The driving was great by the driver and he was very nice to me and very helpful considering I had a blister on my left foot. The whole day was great except the weather wasn't and I did what was expected

It was great. The guide was very informative and personable.
