Great value for money

The tour is just great, especially considering it's not even expensive. The only thing we were a bit surprised about was the unprofessional organization and communication, but our experience didn't suffer from that ;)

Nice and Affordable Tour Experience

We had the best 10 hour tour with Colin! He picked us up & dropped me off punctually. He was warm and friendly, and she was incredibly knowledgeable about the city. Some Indian girls and I were very comfortable in his van. Colin definitely customized the trip for all of the ages in the tour. I would highly recommend this tour company based on the customer service and delivering exactly what they promised: Colin was on time, knowledgeable, and professional, while also making the tour a lot of fun!

Philip Island tour

I planned this tour with some friends, but I was send in an other group, in a different company than Melbourne Australia Tour. The guide was really nice and friendly, we discovered lovely places thanks to him. I didn't have the same tour as my friends so I reached them only at the penguin parade at the end of the day. Despite the fact that I spent my day alone, the organisation was not really optimum. I received the information the night before the tour, and the person who sent it was not nice and used its flu as an excuse for its bad behaviour and organisation. I do not recommend this tour, for the same price you can have a better tour on Philip Island.

thanks for the review as you understand we will agree to disagree with you... calling on bookme to launch full independent investigation into this matter unless the person has got witnesses or legal evidence to back her story then reviews should not be allow as anyone can write anything about anyone....
