This is the first time I join a tour in Australia. special morning tea, amazing landscape, and nice guide - Adrian. Really thanks Adrian a lot. Let me have a amazing day.

Paul was wonderful, you can tell he enjoys what he does. He was cheerful and very insightful. A great sense of humor. The busses were not over crowded the trip was broken up into nice manageable chunks of time. Overall very happy I got to partake on this tour!

Z7053KHkatiem February 2020

Had such an amazing day. So much packed into one day. Our driver/guide was Katherine and she was amazing. She was knowledgeable and fun, made it the best day ever.

12 hours appeared to be a long time stuck in a little bus, but, it was anything but boring or tiresome. Chloe was our guide, driver, tea maker and little pearl of wisdom. Fantastic and funny explanations with hints along with great suggestions of the best places to view the sights from. If Chloe suggests something then you just know it is worth the try, even down to the best pie and ice cream. The day itself was marred by a little low cloud and some mist at the 12 Apostles but it did not detract from the great views, the weather stayed dry until the drive back to Melbourne. Plenty of stops with photo opportunities are on the trip so always have the camera ready. Be prepared for some steps down to a couple of beaches but worth the trouble especially at Gibson steps, Shipwreck Cove is worth the walk. The hunt was on for a Koala, which is not a bear, was taken on by all and when one was spotted the cameras were well used. Very highly recommend Bunyip tours and if Chloe is your guide and driver then you know you will be in for the best day out.

Great Ocean tour had pretty good views through out the riad and the tour guide cloe was very high energy and engaging.

T3982HIbarbarac February 2020

Very scenic trip and Mike C did a great job providing us with interesting information and stopping to see adventures as we encountered them. Loved seeing the Koalas! We had a great tour group and bus was very comfortable. Thank you Mike C. for making the the trip wonderful!

We used a company called Autotopia and had the privilege of a wonderful driver named Tara. Aside from the 90 minutes it took to get out of Melbourne - talk about sprawl, the trip was great. We were on the road together for twelve hours, and packed more into that than one can imagine. The roiling Bass Strait, the beautiful temperate rain forest, complete with beech trees, koalas and king parrots, the great vibe of the seaside Apollo Bay, the wonderful stories of how & why each area got its colourful name, and of course the Apostles - a sight to behold. Oh, and did I mention the chocolatieri? Gourmet chocolate & ice cream! If you only have a day to see the Great Ocean Road, do this trip. You don’t even have to get up at the crack of dawn to do it. And ask for Tara to be your driver. You will have a blast.

DennisMNZ January 2020

Great trip with heaps of good information and photo opportunities provided by Mike C. Really enjoyed the Loch Ard. Loved Koalas in the wild, Mike even spotted an Echidna. Tour group very friendly. All appreciated Mike taking our photos.

Alleniec January 2020

We were able to see all the spots we wanted to see! We saw 4 koalas along the way and stopped to take photos. Mike, our tour guide, made sure we covered everything and gave concise and interesting information for each spot. He also knows when to take a break and let us rest! The seats in the van were comfortable too!

amandahanssson January 2020

This tour was amazing and everything you could ever wish for! Nice views and a lot of new places. Our guide, Adrian, did this tour even better because of his amazing stories and how happy he was all the time! He made this tour 10 times better. We all had a good time in the bus and that was all thanks to Adrian!

Alice_Y December 2019

Since it was the Boxing Day, I understand that the schedule got a bit late and rush. The supplemental dinner was not good enough, especially when we had to pay and had dinner in the bus/streetside. The bus had very small seats, it’s suffered to sit in for 3hrs.

ashwinik362 December 2019

Great day trip with amazing sights of natural beauty! Our driver and guide Adrian was very entertaining and managed to make a more than 13 hour trip a lot of fun. Would definitely recommend this outing if you are visiting Melbourne.

Alex F December 2019

It was a Great Tour and Leonie was a perfect Giude. I really can recommend that Tour! It was a long day, but wonderful

Maggie G December 2019

Bill our guide certainly showed his passion as a tour guide and he certainly cares about his customers. Drove carefully and gave good information about the sightseeing attractions and restaurant recommendations. Highly recommended! We had a great time.

Dionelvors December 2019

Our guide was Chris R. And he was perfect during the day !! He was explaining everything, he gave us some very nice tips and he also dropped us off in a very convenient location!! Also with his assistance we saw koalas❤️ The 4 stars instead of five are because is referred that all the entrance fees are including but there aren’t any fees for none of the national parks and that makes it a little bit overpriced!!

Q8847QMshirleyp December 2019

Great day long tour. Guide knowledgible & cheerful. She had the biggest smile. Cloe made the tour very enjoyable

cliffkev December 2019

It was a good tour with scenic view. Our guide Cloe was nice, enthusiastic and helpful. A tour that I would recommend.

Kookathewanderer November 2019

I absolutely loved this tour. The guide was friendly, knowledgeable and professional. Don’t be daunted by the time required to do this tour, it is worth it. You will see some of the beautiful and lush scenery in the world. We have several stops along the great ocean road, all beautiful. I felt we had just the right amount of time for each one. We were often surprised by some wild creatures we didn’t know would be there ( a wild echidna and some kangaroos). Wifi on the bus is a plus for your way home, where you can post all the wonders shots you took during the day

manglicmotmaryjane November 2019

If there's like a word more than excellence, it would be that to describe the whole trip/tour. Our expectation is only just about a normal trip and being able to see the beauty of 12 apostles (As Theres a huge noise about how incredibly beautiful it is). Our team was late for the meet up time due to some unexpected incident, but Reece our tourist guide, was patient enough to wait for us. We thought that could have ruined the whole day but it turned out to be the best trip that went beyond our expectations. Reece made the whole trip more fun. Given that the view and experience while cruising is effortlessly stunning, but it wouldnt have been so perfect w/o him as our tourist guide. There was some sort of genuineness to what he was doing that transpired in him. This person deserves a huge tap, really! The whole trip cant be as wonderful as it was without him to make us all laugh and entertained. We love you Reece! Surely we will recommend this tour company and you most especially because People just need to experience what we had. Really priceless! (And also, your music playlist while driving, I'll give it 11 out of 10)☺️

JennyBr0 November 2019

An excellent day out. Bill our driver was on time with all the pick-ups and had plenty of facts to share on the drive. The views were stunning.

stellarankin November 2019

An amazing day with Reece as guide and driver. Lots of relevant info - but never too much. Frequent stops - lovely tea and cakes in the morning and good choices pointed out for lunch. He knew where to find koalas snoozing in trees and pointed out the quieter spots to enjoy the wild southern ocean. Knowledgeable and fun he made a great guide and we thoroughly enjoyed our day. Our last day in Australia couldn’t have been better.

Anne232014 November 2019

I booked this tour for 2 of my friends from Sri Lanka. They had a fantastic experience and didn't find enough words to express their satisfaction. They said the tour leader was extremely friendly, cheerful and knowledgeable. My friends were pretty impressed. I tried to book this same tour through another tour group simply because they were $35 cheaper per person. However, talking to a rep to book this tour was a nightmare itself as they were stationed overseas and I couldn't get a word in or ask a question due to poor quality of phone connection. After 3 failed attempts I gave up and called Bunyip tours. From the first word spoken it was a very pleasant experience and I will use the same company for all my future requirements. Extremely efficient. I suppose paying extra is fully worth. Thank you Bunyip tours for this fantastic service.

Janet_T November 2019

Amazing day! Out of this world! Thank you! Jake our tour guide and driver was wonderful! Thank you too!

BDiekema November 2019

We had the best full day tour with Cloe. She sure is a bundle of energy and certainly kept the small group entertained and content. She was so accommodating, too, stopping the bus when koalas and kangaroos were seen to allow those on the tour some photo opportunities. It was a great way to spend the day!
