Have to admit that I was taken aback by a couple of things on this tour
1- on our voucher it said the tour would start at 7:50 and when I called to confirm I was rold they'd pick us up around 8:50. Even though they told me it was "normal" since the 7:50 time was the time they started picking people up, it was different than all the other tours I had been on.
2- when the guide got to our hotel later than he was supposed to and nobody warned us (in another tour, we had gotten a call to warn us it'd happen)
3- the guide said that we'd be visiting 4 wineries...and I knew that I had paid for a 5 wineries tour..
Let's just say that by then, I thoughwe were on the wrong tour! Turned out the 5th winery was a beer farm where you could taste wine if you wanted...Anyhow! Loved the fact that we went to Jacob's Creek even if it wasn't mentionned in the tour detail
Guide was interesting to listen to but didnt seem that motivated
There were only 3 of us so it was as private of a tour as possible. Great guide, GREAT tastings :). We even saw a group of wild kangourous!
Although going through the Great Ocean Road is worth it (my personnal highlight was Loch Ard Gorge) and our guide stopped at ifferent places to allow for photo opportunities, I'm still wondering about the "sunset" part of this tour. We were actually driving back to Melbourne when the sun set...maybe my expectations were too high? No high marks for the lunch provided either. Also note that there's no wifi in the van
Great tour. Although the penguins are the highlight, the Philip Island's winery was also a nice stop! Our guide (Shannan) couldn't have been nicer!
