Pete and Trish – April 2023
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the three -day tour that Paul assembled for us. The variety of sites and all the viewpoints for spectacular scenery ( especially along the Great Ocean Road from Bay of Islands east towards Melbourne were first-rate. The accommodations and meal arrangements were excellent.
One highlight for us how much we enjoyed our trek to the Pinnacle to enjoy the magnificent view from there. Paul added it in because the an Indigenous site that we would have visited had been closed and had not yet re-opened in time for us. He felt we were up for it and we were.
If you feel up to it, reaching the Pinnacle is worth the effort especially for the view at the top. It is a nice option to keep in mind. We did it and we are 67 and 70 years old.
We were so impressed with Paul. During the three-day period, and during meals or in transit in the van, he had several great stories to tell about his employment background and the varied outdoor activities he had done. It made for interesting conversation especially while travelling in the back country as we headed west and then south to join the Great Ocean Road.
Another notable aspect for us was the selection of music that Paul has onboard his most comfortable van. He turned on his playlist and, in addition to enjoying the songs, we would guess the song and the artist as we are trivia buffs. If you take a tour with Paul be sure to ask to hear his music while on the longer stretches of travel.
The tour was everything we hoped it would be (and more) and certainly worth the cost we paid. Paul conducted the tour flawlessly and was always attentive to our needs and flexible as required. We feel that met Paul as a driver and tour guide and we said goodbye to him after three days as a friend.
My wife and I highly recommend Melbourne Elite Tours for anyone interested in exploring the Melbourne area in a most relaxed and enjoyable way. You won’t be disappointed.
