We had a great 1-day-tour to Mornington Peninsula & Phillip Island by Great Private Tours. Thanks greatly to Steve and his professional team. Our vacation is short and so we can only allocate 1 day for Mornington and Phillip. However, most tours of Mornington or Phillip requires 1 day each and 2 days in total. Besides most tours in Mornington do wine tasting which we had no interest in. Steve tailor made an itinerary for us that compact the usual 2 day tour into a 1-day tour. It was a long trip from 08:15 to 00:15 which last for 16 hours. Our Itinerary included Brighton beach, Arthurs Seat Eagle, Peninsula Hot Springs, Ashcombe Maze & Lavender Gardens, Nobbies Centre Antarctic Journey and guided-ranger-tour of the penguin parade. Our tour guide is Matt. He is very nice, knowledgeable and professional. Matt told us lots of interesting and useful information about Melbourne. Furthermore, thanks to the very comfy Benz with recliner chair, we had very good rest on the van and can finish the very long itinerary in 1 day. We are so grateful that Great Private Tours who arranged such a comfy, efficient, fruitful, informative and relaxed journey for us. Therefore, we want to fully recommend them to everyone without reservation~~!!!!

Steve organised one of the best tours of my life. He was polite, knowledgeable and could understand exactly what the traveller wanted. He customised our tour to give us the best experience ever. We were a group 17 with kids and elderly people and Steve made sure he gives us all the help to visit the spots like Great Ocean Road and Philip Island. I will give 10/10 to Steve and his associates for organising the tour and would highly recommend him and Great Private Tours.
