One of the best tours I’ve done in Australia. I’ve seen and done so many things in just two days. Driving along the Great Ocean Road, learning how to stand up on a surf board in Lorne, feeding birds and seeing wild Koalas in Kennett River, eating Australia’s best ice cream, having nice talks and guitar play around the campfire, making friends, sleeping in a teepee, visiting Loch Ard Gorge and of course the 12 Apostles. It was an amazing weekend with amazing people.

emmavanderlichte March 2020

We all had an amazing weekend! It didn’t feel like a typical tour but more like a road trip with good friends. Andrew is the best guide and put a lot of effort in. You can really tell that he loves what he does. Spending our night in the teepee was the highlight of the trip and surfing was just as amazing. Definitely an experience you won’t find anywhere else. 11/10 would recommend going.

saskiao142 March 2020

Had the best time. Learning to surf staying in a teepee seeing the great ocean road! Great company and guide Definitely recommend!

202marleent March 2020

An amazing weekend! Andrew is such a wonderful person with a huge heart for what he does. Everything was amazing! Thank you so much. Cant wait for Teepee Topia.

bovano1507 March 2020

Where should I start this review, I don’t really need to say a lot... you just have to experience it. Go on this trip because It’s the best great ocean road trip you can find. Andrew , you are just a amazing, kind an funny guy. It was perfect from the beginning till the end! It’s worth your money! Andrew, see you soon!

senayun March 2020

It was the tour that I wished. Not too big, and not too busy doing something and relaxing in the nature, and enjoying the time. Small group (11 people). So everyone could talk with each others and feel connected to others who are being friends after tour. Hope Teepee tours keep going on their way.

Aroa_G March 2020

Amazing! Andrew is cool and the tour is worth and authentic. We had a lot of fun together and I learnt surfing. What else I could ask?

fragaria-vescaa March 2020

This is a really fun and relaxed tour. I could not have asked for a better way to explore the great ocean road. What sets this tour apart from other tours is that not only you get to see the beautiful views that the great ocean road has to offer, but it's also a fun social experience. It's ideal for backpackers but also suitable for anyone else who is up for a camping trip. Andrew is a really laid-back guy who genuinely cares about everyone feeling comfortable and having a good time. He creates a nice, social atmosphere that brings everyone together. Thank you for two lovely days! :)

sam21175 March 2020

Where to start Andrew was the best tour guide ever really friendly and knowledgable . Had my first ever surf lesson and even tho I did not get very far I really enjoyed it . The camping was the best bit and the bbq was lovely . Sleeping in a teepee was a experience on its own and worth doing . The second day the weather was not very good but still had a brill day would deffo recommend this tour

plimh March 2020

I loved everything about this trip! Andrew was a fantastic tour guide, musician, story teller, conversation starter, cook and did everything to make everybody feel confertable. It is only a small van, but the small group created a nice vibe. After the surf lesson we arrived at the teepee tent, definitely the best thing of this trip. After a delicious bbq around a campfire, the campfire continued inside the teepee tent full with comfortable beds. The second day we went to the high lights of the great ocean road such as the twelve apostels. You can stay as long as you want, there isn’t a strict schedule as a normal trip. As Andrew said; it is more a road trip then a guided tour, and that made it a great experience!

samrU7308HY March 2020

Without knowing what to expect I went on the teepee tour with an open mind. I wanted to see the great ocean road and that was we were going to do. But it was so much more. Andrew was the best tour guide I ever met and made everybody feel a part of the group. He taught us how to surf and in the evening we were all sitting together, telling stories and listening to music. Later on in the teepee everybody was laying in bed with a campfire in the middle of the tent! I never had an experience like this and I would recommend to everybody! With the live music, small group and lovely people this was definitely the best choice for the great ocean road I could make.

nhofmann44 March 2020

I cannot say enough great things about Andrew and the Great Ocean Road trip. A few friends and I went on the two-day tour and truly loved every minute of it. Andrew is a super down to earth guy who's eager to create real connections with everyone on his trips. He takes his work seriously and wants to ensure everyone has a great time without going over the top or acting like your typical tour guide. The Great Ocean Road tour was beautiful and experiencing it in such a small group made the experience even more memorable. Spending the night in the teepee was a super cool and unique experience that you won't get anywhere else. I can't think of a better way to have toured GOR.

karlagraversen March 2020

Best tour for the Great Ocean Road! Funny guide and a lot of chilled people all up for an amazing trip! If you like bbq, surfing and awesome sights, this is the trip for you!

Vicky S February 2020

One of the highlights of my time in Melbourne. As a solo traveler, I highly recommend this tour- it's not only a great way to see some amazing sights but also a great way to meet some pretty awesome people. Andrew went out of his way to ensure that everyone had an outstanding, unique experience. DO IT.

mariee954 February 2020

I did the tour the few two days ago and I just want to say thank you to Andrew. He is a really nice guy and he takes care of everyone. We went to surf, we had a picnic, we saw the most beautiful spots of the GOR, we had a BBQ, we slept in the Teepee (really relaxing place), .. Try it on your own, you won’t be disappointed. This tour is really worth the detour and its price.

rebeccanderson February 2020

Whether you’re a local looking for a fun weekend away or a tourist wanting to tick off the sites, this is an epic, and truly unique experience. It’s the perfect two days of being outside, going at the group’s own pace, while having every detail taken care of by Andrew, who cares incredibly for each visitor and strives above all else to make the experience one to be remembered. I loved that unlike other tours, we got to move at the pace our group wanted, rather than being shuffled along to stick to a schedule. Andrew makes a serious effort to promote a friendly group dynamic, and does so in a way that guarantees you’ll leave the tour with new friends. If you’re down for an adventure, and want to get to see the Great Ocean Road along the way, you won’t be disappointed by choosing to book with this group.

michellebourquin February 2020

This was such a unique tour! You won’t find anything else like it! It feels like a road trip with old friends you’re catching up with as you all share stories from all over the world! You see amazing sights, spend time at one of the most beautiful beaches, surf some waves and spend the evening warming up in a teepee with a fire and good lives tunes! I highly recommend this tour to everyone!!

alliraw2020 February 2020

Our tour guide Andrew was phenomenal, great host with great service and GREAT CHUNES!!! Had a blast on the 2 day tour and would recommended it 100% if you're looking for a quick getaway and wanting to experience TEEPEE TOPIA!

tamsinw317 February 2020

The BEST way to spend a few day! I had the best time with teepee tours, made some great friends and experienced the great ocean road in the best way I can imagine. Loved the laid back feel of the tour, it felt like going on a road trip with a bunch of friends rather than on an organised tour. The teepee itself is amazing and I loved sleeping in it. Andrew is so helpful, no request is too much and is really great at getting the group to socialise and get to know each other.. not to mention the best jam I’ve ever had, this guy can sure play the guitar! Would highly recommend!

RTWJax February 2020

Wow. What a phenomenal way to begin our time in Australia. We met Andrew in downtown Melbourne and spent the next two days with him and ten strangers. But we didn’t stay strangers for long. Andrew is a wizard at #realtalk and in no time had us connecting beyond surface-level b.s. We really got to know and care for each other which was a remarkable feat driven by Andrew’s authentic curiosity. The surf lessons were fantastic and we all got a chance to go at our own pace, which was great for me as I’ve surfed a handful of times before. The scenery was splendid, the stops well planned (including two stops where we randomly saw dolphins playing in the ocean and one with koalas and kangaroos), and the teepee... wow the teepee. I’ve been traveling the world now for five months and this is the coolest place I have stayed. Remarkable painted sky with the sunset, roasted marshmallows and more heart-to-hearts around the fire, and snoozing until nature woke us up in the teepee. I cannot recommend this tour enough. If you’re contemplating it, stop contemplating and book a space today!

Chantal1501 January 2020

Andrew the tourguide is a Very nice guys and really relaxed. He makes sure everyone feels welcome and creates a real group out of individuals. I had a really good time during the great ocean road trip,the BBQ and ofcourse the bonfire at night near and in the teepee. I would reccomend him always to take you on a trip! Thanks so much!

Freckkkkkles January 2020

Where to begin? Naturally, the beginning.. So, you meet a man with a van (less dodgy than it sounds) and all of your new travel buddies. From the get go Andrew was fab! He told us the very funny story about how TeePee Tours began and also had some great little icebreakers for us to all introduce ourselves to each other in the van. We had a great group as well, so we all became friends fast, which was lovely! That's what makes this "tour" so great. It feels more like a road trip with your friends than a tour, which I think is what they're going for, so they've succeeded! You get some great photo stops on the Great Ocean Road, and then a pit stop midway for a couple of hours to try and surf. The surfing was great fun and the little town it was in was really lovely. From there you then make your way to the accommodation for the evening and definitely one of the greatest additions to the trip... the TIPI! I'm by no means into camping, but this was a luxury camping experience - more like glamping. From the moment you walk in, it feels super homely.. with the fire burning and each bed set up with blankets and sleeping bags. They've really done a good job at making this a luxury camping experience. We spent the night eating the lovely barbecue Andrew prepared (with our help as sous chefs) and told stories around the fire. We were also lucky enough to have Andrew play his guitar and sing for us - make sure he does this when you're there as he has a cracking voice! All in all, this was one of the best experiences I've ever had and I would HIGHLY suggest it to anyone looking to experience the Great Ocean Road in a small group that you will undoubtedly become good friends with, then THIS IS THE TRIP FOR YOU. Andrew is a fantastic host and really fun to be around, so you are guaranteed to have a fabulous time!
