This tour was distinctly average. I went on two other tours from Melbourne with a different company and both these other tour guides went the extra mile in very different ways. This tour guide was nice enough but the commentary was limited, there was no music on the bus and he really didn't make the kind of effort I have experienced on other tours. The tour itself was spoiled by shocking weather, but seeing the kangaroos in the wild was a highlight (as one of the only things we could actually see, given the weather). The rating therefore is for the execution of the tour and not the destinations involved as I can't really comment on that - I'm sure the view was lovely!!! The scenery we did see was nice and, given the right weather I think it would be worth doing for that, but if you can find a different company, I would as I believe there is definitely a better level of customer service out there.
Hotel pickup meant being picked up by a rather grumpy man, being taken to the central drop off point and then walking another block. Perhaps the guide was having a bad day, but it seemed like he wanted to be somewhere else. The scenery was magic though.
The weather was rainy and foggy on our visit!
The tour was ok. Unfortunately the bus broke down and shortened the tour by 2-3 hours. We didn't get to see as much as hoped. However, the sites of the Grampians were beautiful and the tour host was lovely and polite.
