Amazing day trip to Mt Buller!! Great trip to Mt Buller! Walter runs an amazing business filled with lots of helpful information and is great at making sure you get the most value and time out of your tour! So friendly and comfortable! We were staying right in the city so easy pick up and drop off! Snooze while Mr Walter takes you to your destination and sorts you out with a discount on all the snow gear you could need! Great day at Mt Buller – would recommend tobogganing if it’s your first time and you’re only there for the day! Great site seeing lift available and the place is just great! Then you’ll get back to Melbourne in no time with Walter making everything so easy and enjoyable! (Was a great birthday present for my boyfriend who hadn’t been to the snow before) suitable for family, friends, couples or solo if you’re game!

Amazing! Walter is an absolute credit to the company he created! He is knowledgeable and fun to spend 2 days on the road with. He really looked after me and my friend and was always accommodating with his biscuits and water supplies! I loved the bird feeding and koala spotting! And of course the apostles were spectacular! Thank you Walter and the best of luck with the future of your tour company!! P.s. I attached the photo you took of me and my friend just before the wave hit us!!

Amazing day. This was honestly one of the best day trips I’ve ever experienced. Everything was well organised, Walter- the guide was extremely informative and kept us entertained all day. We started the trip early which allowed us to be ahead of other trips and it made the experience a lot different – we felt those amazing places were all to ourselves. Things we saw on the way to the Great Ocean Road were as amazing as the attraction itself. I’d recommend this to anyone !
