This was a 'OK' tour! The tour left around 7 - 7.30 in the morning from the city. The first stop was for morning tea and biscuits at around 9.00 - 9.30 a.m. And then lunch around 12.30 p.m at the Brambuk Aboriginal Cultural Centre. Although Brambuk Aboriginal Cultural Centre has a small coffee shop it's advisable to take something... More

We did both the tour of Phillip Island and the Great ocean road with Autopia. We had 2 great days out. Being with a small company rather than a big coach is always a nicer experience and meant we could sometimes be a little more flexible. The seats in the minibus were quite tight, particularly if you are tall, but... More

We went with Alan on a reverse trip to the 12 Apostles. This is hands down the best way to beat the crowds and have an incredible day!! If you're asking yourself if you should drive instead of the tour -- answer is don't. So, why do Autopia reverse trip in comparison to other options? - because going in reverse... More

The tour was well-planned with great attention to detail from the moment of pickup early in the morning until dropoff around 9 p.m. Dave provided informative and interesting commentary about points all along the...

Our tour guide Simon Q was very welcoming and went above and beyond to make our visit to Phillip as comprehensive and enjoyable as possible. The bus picked us up from our accommodation right on time, despite the 1hr+ journey to the animal park, it was a very comfortable experience.

Hi guys, What a great review, sounds like you had a perfect day. So glad you found the bus spacious and comfortable! The Penguin Parade is a very popular tourist attraction but as Simon is one of our longest serving tour guides, I bet he gave you some tips to avoid the crowds! Many thanks from Autopia tours. More
