  •   If you’re traveling solo or with a group of up to 11 members, I would highly recommend you to book your tours with “Great Private Tours” for the following reasons:

    1- Other tour companies are often packed with many tourists, thus it will take longer time at the stops, and will restrict you with limited time at the attractions, where as with Great Private Tours, you’ll be in control of the time.

    2- Steve will provide you with the best itinerary that will meet your expectations! He’ll consider every aspect, starting from the weather, sunrise/sunset, meals, peak hours, and since he has been in business for many years he already has good relations with the employees of the touristic attractions who will not hesitate to facilitate your tours.

    3- The price is very reasonable, specially if you’re a group, it’s totally worth it.

    4- Steve, being a professional tour guide, in addition to his experience as a sustainability specialist, be ready to enjoy the knowledge transfer he’ll share with you on the environment of all places you’ll visit as well as the anthropology of Australia and specially the province of Victoria.

    I personally have really enjoyed all of my tours with Steve, and I would highly recommend it to everyone planning to visit Melbourne for an unforgettable experience!
