Blinky was an excellent guide…we loved everything about his performance. There were many great sights and activities. Blinky kept us on schedule while also being flexible. We found one of the hikes quite challenging but Blinky and our fellow travellers were super supportive. We had a lovely group and I would certainly recommend this tour.

The stops during the tour were great but the services provided were far below average. The barbecue included two slices of untoasted toast, one cheap unsalted patty and one cheap sausage, no sides except for one onion for the whole group, no vegetables, no drinks. Since we ate the toast for barbecue, there was nothing left for breakfast than a few cheap cereals. The bus was very uncomfortable and had no toilet. Our driver did not give us any information about the sights for most of the time and did not guide our walks and hikes. Instead he sent us on a hike in extreme heat though there were elderly people on the tour that needed assistance. He told us to take over responsibility for them and call him if we need help. However, there was no reception in the nationalpark. We thought about claiming back our money but we know the answer. We strongly recommend visiting the Grampians and the Great Ocean Road but not with this tour operator.
