Guided Tours vs Car Hire – 5 Reasons Why Taking a Guided Tour Can Enhance Your Travel Experience!
Guided tours can have a huge impact on your overall travel experience, offering a complete package for you to enjoy without thinking about destinations or timetables! Guests are often left wondering whether they should take a guided tour of some of Victoria’s iconic day tour locations, or hire a car and drive themselves. We’ve spelt it out for you below, with 5 reasons why guided tours will enhance your travel experience!
Tour guides can offer a safer and more memorable experience
With one of our fantastic guides, you’ll have an easier time learning about the many spectacular destinations that Victoria has to offer. Our guides are hand-picked and extensively trained to deliver memorable Australian experiences. Their passion for their job and their informative commentary will make yours a journey to remember!
If you don’t have a lot of time to see the sights, using a tour guide will help you get the most out of your trip. For even more control over your schedule, consider hiring a private guide instead of going with a pre-set tour.
Spend more time taking in your surroundings, less time with your eyes stuck on the road
Australia is home to some of the most spectacular drives in the world, this being particularly true for the Great Ocean Road. With the journey being a long and winding road, do you really want to spend almost your entire experience with your eyes glued to the tarmac? Another benefit is that aboard our 24 seater busses, you’ll be seated a little higher than you would be in a car, allowing for an even better view.
It’s a great way to socialise and meet new people
With our guided tours holding a max of 24 guests, you’ll get the opportunity to meet new people from across the globe. Make the most of your tour guide by asking for recommendations on other places to visit whilst in Melbourne, and advice for your onward travels!
We’re proud to offer a fully mobile personal translation service, allowing our non-English speaking guests to receive their tour information in their own language. Our key tour information has been professionally translated and recorded, and will ensure you don’t miss a single detail whilst on tour.
Reduce your environmental footprint
Travel together and help us to promote sustainable tourism! As a tourism operator whose primary function is to show visitors to Melbourne the natural assets of our state, we take very seriously our obligation to operate in a sustainable fashion and thus to do what we can to ensure that our natural assets are maintained for future generations – and visitors. After all, we want to share the beauty of Australia for a long time to come.
