This tour hits all the highlights of the Great Ocean Road! One of the best day tours I booked in Australia. You go to beaches, great ocean road "gate," see koalas (hopefully for you) see rain forests, 12 apostles, razor back, loch ard gorge. We also got morning coffee/tea, lunch, and dinner. Shout out to our tour guide Rob, who... More

I have gone to Great Ocean Road twice (via tours) and also have gone to other tours in Melbourne but the Escape Discovery Adventures tour with Rob has definitely been the best tour experience for me so far. The tour was well thought off from the van to the stops and even to food places. Also, Rob was very enthusiastic... More

Great guided tour lead by Stacey from Escape Discovery Adventures in luxurious mini bus. We were picked up from the Crown Promenade Hotel in central Melbourne. On the way down to Phillip Island Stacey kept us informed and amused by her excellent commentary. The first stop, apart from a welcome comfort one, was to visit the Phillip Island Wildlife Park...

My friend and I had joined the one day Phillip Island tour. Our tour guide (Phil) is very friendly and we were well taken care of during the whole tour. He even provided us cushion and blanket during the penguin parade to make the experience more comfortable. The car we travelled is a spacious Mercedes mini van, plenty of leg... More

From the minute we boarded the van, Rob began to ply us with information on the geography, topography, history, flora and fauna of Melbourne, Victoria and the area along the Great Ocean Road. He was a fount of knowledge and was always interesting and amusing. There was literally no question that went unanswered! I commend Escape Discovery Tours on their... More

Tour Date: November 2, 2016 This tour was totally worth it. Quality overall was top notch - our tour guide Rob, the Mercedes vehicle, well laid out itinerary, the sights we visited, the breakfast, lunch, and dinner were all fantastic. I highly recommend this tour and I promise to write an in-depth review (with pictures) soon!

I visited Melbourne in Oct2016 and joined this tour with Paul as the guide. Paul is such a caring and amazing person to make sure everyone is having a good time - you know it when he just bought a new Mercedes Benz truck to ensure you trip to be more comfortable, not to mention the lunch and dinner offered...

Paul is the best tour guide ever! It has been a wonderful day. Even if a portion of the road was closed (september), we still feel we hadn't missed anything. Book without hesitation.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
