Meet your local guide and driver, Bianca. I am a local resident of the City of Port Phillip and today I will take you to the best places for eating and sightseeing outside Melbourne City Centres. I treat all my guests like visitors from overseas, redefining tourism as genuine hospitality. As soon as you disembark from the cruise, you will be picked up in an air-conditioned vehicle and get to explore the grand coastal town of Brighton where we will have breakfast, the most visited beach town of St Kilda and the magnificent Royal Botanic gardens of Victoria. As this is a private tour, we can go with the pace of your group. With my experience and knowledge of Melbourne, I will be able to suggest places to go to if you wish to add/eliminate some of the itinerary.

Luxury Private Great Ocean Road Tour up to 7 people - Entire VehicleDay Trips

Luxury Private Great Ocean Road Tour up to 7 people - Entire Vehicle

star-5
The famous Great Ocean Road is a must for any visitor to Melbourne. This tour is purely private and bespoke meaning we do not take other groups but yourselves up to 7 passengers. The Mercedes vehicle is spacious and air conditioned with seats custom designed for long distance driving. Unlike other tours, you get to choose which particular places and how much time you would like to spend there and we help that happen. Some places will be interesting than others and you may want to spend more time there and this is why we are flexible. The road is windy and best taken in a smaller vehicle with several stops to enjoy the views and take memorable photos Many trips are spoiled by the wrong crowd and we believe if you are going to enjoy this, make it private. This tour is great if you have children as well as we can accommodate child seats, please advise after you book.
