Josh was great. He was very knowledgeable about Melbourne and also very friendly and personable. He took us to all of the highlights of the city plus some places that most people probably don't get to see. He went above and beyond for us, including taking us to a great lunch spot that was off the beaten path. We left him feeling like we had learned a lot about Melbourne and had met a nice new Aussie friend. I highly recommend Josh for your tour of Melbourne.

Josh gave us a tour of Melbourne which was fantastic! He was knowledgeable, personable and a total delight to be with. After his tour, we felt like we got a real feeling of the city, it's neighborhoods, attractions, parks, etc. We would definitely recommend him and ToursByLocals.

Tour: #597511, Private Philip Island Penguin Tour from Melbourne, Melbourne, VIC, Australia    view tour
Date: Nov 13/19

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to see these adorable little penguins in the wild. Josh made the day extra special. The rain did not dampen his enthusiasm. He knew the best places to go to view the parade. We were just a couple of feet from hundreds of penguins as they hurried off to their burrows. Fabulous day!

It you want to travel the Great Ocean Road you need two days to enjoy it. Josh was a wonderful guide! His Subaru will take you places that others cannot go. He is very relaxed and willing to make extra stops if something catches your eye. He even went back to one spot so I could take extra photographs. He was determined that we would see a koala and spent extra time looking--we were rewarded with wonderful photos of one sitting by the road. Highly recommend the tour!

Josh was absolutely fantastic to have over our 2 day Great Ocean Road Trip. Love how easily he smiles, and was always accommodating with wanting to take our pictures and pointing out sights for us. He was also a safe driver! And his local knowledge was great as we asked a lot of questions and Josh, patiently to replied. And after i had seen some interesting birds of prey on a stump, Josh even made a turn but two magpies got to them first! Overall,very pleased with Josh,and will use him again in the future

We did a three day Great Ocean Drive/Walk tour which allowed us to walk the first and last stages of the GOW (about 8km each) and experience the drive. We spent two nights in Apollo Bay. We had a great time and enjoyed Josh's company on the drives and the walks. His Subaru Forrester was great for visibility and comfort on the long drives. Highly recommended. R&E, Vancouver, Canada

3 well traveled ladies took a full day tour with Josh. He rates a 5 of 5. Josh was extremely knowledgable about the city and the countryside. Car was immaculate and comfortable. He is a real foodie. We had a delicious and very inexpensive lunch in Chinatown. He did everything exactly the way we wanted it all day. What a pleasure! We would recommend him highly in every way. It was the best tour we took all month in Australia.
