Kangaroos in the Wild
MichelleS, Mar 2023
Grampians National Park was very cool. The cultural center was closed for construction, but we saw a few kangaroos and emus in the wild. Quite a few overlooks with beautiful views. Makenzie Falls is a lot of steps on the way back up. If it's super hot, I'm not sure it'd be worth it. All in all, recommend.
I'd rather do this than bunjy jumping!
Roger_E, Feb 2023
A long day in a coach but worth the trip. Wes our guide and driver was informative, helpful and accomodating. In addition to the scheduled visits he added one to Bunji's shelter.
A day at the outback
julianmotha, Feb 2023
It was a good day out in the country. The info on the flyer was misleading. All items listed was not covered. There was no entry fee to the parks. Except for a wallaby and a few emus did not see any other wild life.
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Hi there, Thanks a lot for your review and sorry to hear the tour did not fully meet your expectations. Unfortunately when it comes to wildlife it's very hard to predict what the day will be like: some days our guests will see emus, kangaroos and wallabies, and some other days they just won't show up. That being said, the Grampians is one of the best spots in the whole country to spot wildlife so the canches of seeing interesting animals are much higher there. We hope you can give it a second chance one day! Kind regards, Luis
Awesome guide and itinerary overcomes substandard equipment
Neal_P, Feb 2023
Our guide, Janet "J-Dog" Archibald was excellent and accommodating. While some reviewers expressed disappointment that roughly half of the tour is spent driving to and from The Grampians and to various lookouts and wildlife viewing areas, we found that the drive and J-Dog's commentary provided an excellent tutorial for us right-side-of-the-road drivers who were renting a motorhome the next day. J-Dog also offered us tips of things to see on our camping trip around the beautiful state of Victoria. To the tour operator: the five-star rating is directed to our guide and the tour itinerary, not the mini-bus we used on the tour; it had a terrible suspension that did little to smooth out the many roadway bumps. The mini-bus was also rather uncomfortable for my 2-meter frame. The seats were placed so close together that, with my bum pushed into the seat as much as possible, my knees were jammed into the seat in front of me. I did find a bit of relief by moving my wife to another row and placing one leg into the aisle and "man-spreading" into the extra seat next to me. Even then, I found it difficult to stay in various contorted positions for long with the jarring, heaving mini-bus suspension bouncing this way and that. I strongly suggest that you consign a more comfortable mini-bus to this drive-intensive tour.
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Hi Neal, First of all we really appreciate your review, and Janet will love to hear that you had such a wonderful day with her. We apologize if the bus didn't fully meet your expectations: we are constantly upgrading our fleet in order to maximize comfort and safety. We hope your camping trip around Victoria went well and we look forward to seeing you again soon! Kind regards, Luis
Great trip
Janneke_V, Jan 2023
This trip was fantastic. Lovely to be in nature and experience the beautiful grampians and the countryside. Besides that, Dan(dy) was absolutely the best tourguide you could wish for. Great stories, very knowledgeable, playing perfect (Australian) music while sightseeing. Highly recommended this trip.
Response from Host, Feb 2023
Hi there, Thank you so much for your positive review, we're happy to hear you had a good time on the Grampians Tour! Dandy will be thrilled to read your kind words :) Best regards, Luis
Magnificent Grampians
Evelyn_B, Jan 2023
This tour delivered everything it promised. We had the opportunity to explore the National Park at a relaxed pace. Stops were well-placed and there were plenty of kangaroos and emus to delight the overseas guests on our bus. It was a very full day of activities - we returned to our starting point at 9.30 pm.

Marj treated us to a wonderful day. The Grampians is a must do for nature lover's and walkers. You need to know your ability to walk to the MacKe
Stunning place
Marina_P, Jan 2023
Although the trip is very tiring as we spend most of the time on the bus, the place is absolutely stunning. One of the most beautiful views I've ever seen. I wish we could've had more time to spend at the waterfalls and be able to go for swim. Other than that, the experience was amazing. The staff was really nice and I could learn some things with them.
Lovely experience !!
mari_h, Dec 2022
Nice weather and nice view ! Kindly guide ! Her talk was very interesting. I enjoyed this tour. I was very happy. Hiking was too hard. But the view was sooo beautiful. It was lovely experience.

Audrey_C, Dec 2022
This unique tour offers various of adventure hiking (creek/wood, waterfalls, rock formations and mountains) experiences in one day, and seeing plenty of animals in nature is precious as well.
Very active tour
Shannon_L, Dec 2022
This was a great tour for me as an active person. A few hikes that we quite rewarding with amazing views. The bike to the falls requires a bit of physical ability. There are 280 steep and uneven steps that even a fit person will have trouble with in the heat. Be prepared and listen to the guide when she says bring water. It was a wonderful tour.
Great value for money, enjoy the grampians and let them do ths driving sit back and 😉
Amanda_S, Dec 2022
Good driver and tour guide, easy to manage the walking, lots of options, you can see the falls from the top. Lots of wildlife, kangaroos and emu, great trip!!
You need to go, and ask for Melissa
Genevieve_L, Oct 2022
I don't think we ever had a better guide. Melissa was the best with a charming smile and such a presence! The scenery is breath taking and Melissa even did a special stop for us to photograph the gorgeous Canola fields that were blooming. Good luck in your future adventure Melissa!

WISSAL_H, Sept 2022
The grampians are just amazing, and Briitt will tell you all the hidden story behind it. She is very energetic and friendly and made the tour very fun. I had a great time!
Ancient Wonder
Jeannie_H, July 2022
Maj was an excellent tour guide. Informative, engaged, committed, flexible and firm where necessary with some of our fellow travellers. This was a taster for ancient story, awe and connections. We had a great day!!!
Fun Day at the Grampians
Rosa_B, July 2022
I had a great time on this tour. The itinerary suited me, it wasn't rushed or too strenuous. The guides, Britt and Tim, were very friendly. They were accommodating to our needs and created a relaxed environment. Highly recommend a trip to the Grampians.
It was good.
Heewon_O, July 2022
Guides were very friendly. Tour was informative and fun. Great photo opportunities. The bus was a bit cramped, though.
Grampian day trip
Alejandro_L, July 2022
The Grampians are an excellent day trip from Melbourne, Daniel (tour-guide) he was very gentle and made sure we where safe in every moment of the trip, he is very nice and always keen for a talk.
great experience to have on your trip to Australia!
Eunice_T, July 2022
pick up time was punctual at the stated default location. our guide Daniel was very engaging and friendly. we could see his passion behind what he does and he went the extra mile to give us the best experience possible. the tour was informative and we really enjoyed the views. was very lucky to have clear skies in winter! tip for future travellers is to just bring water! you don’t really need much and your bags can be left in the bus at the stops too. it’s a great day trip if you only have one day to spare and would like to see awesome views and learn some history.
A nice day trip out of Melbourne.
Daryl_Y, June 2022
The tour is enjoyable. When viewing wild kangaroos, we were brought to a spot with 3 kangaroos, but there was a field with many. It would be better if some time could be spent to search for the kangaroos.
