Unforgettable Experience w/ Paul
Ogy
, Jun 2022
It was our best tour guide experience ever. It was fun, educational, comfortable and, did I say fun? Paul took good care of our group which consisted of me, my wife, and my kids (aged 6, 12 & 16 years old). We had a great experience that we will remember forever. We hope to go for a tour again with Paul as he is very warm. We already miss him 😀

The whole tour is memorable for me from the pick up point to drop off where I checked-in. The driver exceeds my expectations. He is knowledgeable about the history/ stories about the Great Ocean Road. I love and enjoyed the rainforest walk , the twelve apostles are stunning. I love the scenery/nature. My co-guest/ tourist are amazing, they even help to take photos! Over all, the whole tour is something I will remember and cherish for the rest of my life

Hi Manuel, Thank you very much for joining us - it was a delight hosting you for the day. We love to create an adventure - not just a sightseeing tour - for our guests, so we are delighted you enjoyed your time with us on that level. We have specialised in only private and truly small group adventures since we started in 2009 so we can provide richer more personalised experiences - again, something we are so glad you enjoyed. 'Memories for life' - we can receive no greater compliment...... Thank you Manuel. Paul - Escape Discovery Adventures

Lovely tour even with a little rain
Markita_H

First day of winter, rain here and there. Paul made the tour interesting, enjoyable and safe. Solo American traveler in mid 60s. The transport was comfy, Paul was very good about bathorom breaks and providing lunch and snacks. The format of the tour was a good mix of activity and driving to the coast.

Hi Markita_H, Thank you for joining us on the first day of winter here in Melbourne, Australia! As I always tell our guests, the 12 Apostles region is also just as well known as 'the Shipwreck Coast' by locals for good reason - the next stop looking out from the Apostles is the South Pole! At this time of year, we love it as the sea can be wild and really brings to life those stories. We were fortunate that the rain left us by the time we arrived there, but we are pretty good at massaging our day to avoid it, so we can take some of the credit? Ha, ha..... Thank you again for joining us and also for taking the time to share your thoughts with others here - we very much appreciate it and trust the rest of your time in Melbourne was an enjoyable one. Paul Escape Discovery Adventures.

Perfect one day tour of the Great Ocean Road with best guide!
tracidudley
, Mar 2022
This tour was the best in everything I want from a tour! First off, it was a small group of 11 and a super easy pick up and great communication from Paul. Paul was one of if not the best tour guide I have had on a tour and I have been on many, many Viator tours. His communication from the start was so great. His driving and commentary were beyond great. All kinds of fun facts that he gave along the way. I felt for a one day tour we could not have received a better overview and hit better stops along the Shipwreck coast and Great Ocean Road! The stop at Apollo bay for fish and chips, Koala and even a Echidna sighting, the Great Outway National park/rainforest and of course the amazing 12 Apostles were just a few of my favorite parts of the day. I went on this tour solo and felt so taken care of by Paul and our group!

Hi Tracidudley, Thank you so much for your humbling review of your day with us! We really do appreciate your support. We have always focused on the truly small group style as it allows us to offer a far more personalised experience and the flexibility to make each day special. We do love to tell stories to add colour to wherever we visit and I am especially pleased you enjoyed that aspect of our style. Again, many thanks tracidudley for joining us and sharing your experience here - it is as much the guests who make any day and it was indeed my pleasure hosting you. I trust you will enjoy the rest of your time here in Australia. Paul - Owner, Escape Discovery Adventures

Day tour 12 Apostles
Marilyn_G
, Jul 2021
Paul was very knowledgeable on the local history. I learnt a lot about my own country. The area was so pretty and he stopped often to let us stretch our legs and take in the beautiful scenery. Because we were the only people on the tour that day he let us switch it around a little and we got to do the helicopter tour over the 12 Apostles, it was the highlight of our holiday. Thank you Paul we had a fantastic day

Traveled with my adult daughter. Paul treated us like family. We had no doubt of his love and knowledge of the area. We even saw a calf being born while visiting the dairy for cheese tasting. Made sure we had a clean van in the early stages of pandemic!

Paul was awesome from the get go. Informational tour. Paul had our attention and provided some laughs. Comfortable, easy going day . The stops were timely and lunch at Apollo Bay was delicious ! The 12 Apostles was stunning and Shipwreck bay was the highlight of this tour! Koalas, rainforest, beaches. What's not to love!
