I was going to the Australian Open in Jan 2024 and wanted to take advantage of being in Melbourne and see some of the south coast scenery. I called a few tour companies, but I was late in planning the trip and all of them were booked for my available dates. I called Mark and he was booked as well, but he set me up with Peter who was a former tour guide that was now working part time. Mark handled all the details and everything went as planned. We did the trip in the reverse order of all the tour busses so we avoided all the crowds and had great day. Peter was great and we got to see the 12 (7 actually) apostles and all the beautiful cliffs and beaches along the south coast as well as some close encounters with koalas and kangaroos in the "wild". It was a great day and a highlight of the trip. Thanks to Mark for setting it all up and Peter for all his local knowledge on the tour and his recommendations for Melbourne places to see.


Fabulous tour of the Great Ocean Road! Mark picked us up promptly from our house in his spacious vehicle that fit all seven of us comfortably, and we chose to take the reverse route which allowed us to skip all the traffic of other tourists. The twelve apostles, rain forests, and long stretches of gorgeous coastline are a must see! Mark went above and beyond to make our experience memorable, even adjusting our itinerary once he realized that spotting koalas and kangaroos was also a priority of our group. I will say that because this tour covers so much ground, you are in the car for lengthy periods of time, but the sights are well worth it, and Mark kept us entertained with Australia facts and trivia during the ride. Awesome trip!


We did a two-day tour along the great ocean road with a night at Port Campbell. The third day we had a day tour to Philip Island and on day four Mark guided us through Melbourne city. Mark drives safely, is very friendly and shares lots of information, facts and stories along the way. He made sure the children (11 and 13) got involved as well. Mark proposed to do the great ocean road in reverse to make the best of the weather, which turned out to be an excellent choice. We spent the sunniest day in Port Campbell National Park which gave brilliant views of the 12 apostles and other rock formations. On the more cloudy second day we saw big groups of wild kangaroos and wild koalas!


Our family of 5 had a great day on the Great Ocean Road tour with Simon from Mark's Tours. The itinerary was all that is promised on the TripAdvisor site and more! Simon, our very professional and friendly driver/guide customized the day to suit our preferences, going out of the way to spot wildlife for us. The van was clean and comfy (a must for a 12-hour tour). In addition to all the coastal formations, we saw Koalas, Kangaroos (on a golf course), and sadly, (with Simon's sharp eye) even an echidna that lie dead on the side of the road.


Mark and his driver, Gary were both wonderful to spend the day with. Mark was very informative along the way accommodating by allowing for extra stops we requested. He made sure we didn’t spend too long at any one spot so we could do everything we had planned. He went out of his way to help us locate a koala in the wild! Water bottles and snacks were provided as well as a charging cable. Our van was very clean and comfortable. Highly recommended!


Mark and Gary did a great job for our family of 9. Mark communicated well ahead of the trip and was accommodating for the needs of our group. During the day Mark provided history of the area along with answering the barage of questions about all things Australia. Being a native of Melbourne gives him a good perspective of how things have changed over time and an intimate knowledge of all the areas we visited. We saw Koalas, Roos, and Wallabies as well a a number of different birds. Lunch in Apollo Beach was great as it had many choices for everyone and all were convenient to walk to. All in all it was a pleasant day with local mate.


Our family of 8 loved this private relaxing personalized tour of the scenic coastline, including the 12 apostles, the Razorback, beaches, and much wildlife! The Mercedes van was comfortable and roomy, and Mark could share his comments and love of this country side with us while Gary drove the winding roads. Everything was customized to our preferences and timeframe. A Delightful Day had by all! Highly recommend this dynamic duo- so kind and respectful of each person’s needs.

Mark was very friendly and engaging Made everyone of us on the trip comfortable and was flexible for some of our needs. He gave a great learning experience with information and pearls. His vehicle was clean and spacious (for the 4 of us) Highly recommend his services


We just had a fantastic day tour with Mark today. Since we only have one day in Melbourne (a stop of a cruise ship, we contacted Mark a few month ago to explore the possibility of touring the Great Ocean Road, the Twelve Apostles and the city, Mark was very responsive and arranged an itinerary that provided us a wonderful memorable experience. Riding in the comfortable car, we learned some history, culture, government and environment of Australia. Along the way, we saw cockatoos, parakeets, wild wallaby and Koala on the tree. The view of the twelve apostles and the great ocean road were breath taking. We even had time to walk down the Gibson’s steps, the gorge, and had a quick city tour at the end despite a little traffic jam on the way back. Thank you, Mark, for a perfect trip and you have shown us the friendly Aussie hospitality!


Our Great Ocean Road adventure with Mark was FABULOUS!!!! Mark went above and beyond on our all day journey. He ended our tour with a surprise treat bag that we are still enjoying. In additional to a fabulous day he also loaned us blankets to take with us to Phillips Island for the following day. Many thanks Mark!!!
