Tour: #480809, The stunningly grand Great Ocean Road !, Melbourne, VIC, Australia    view tour
Date: Mar 12/19

What a fantastic day traveling out of Melbourne to travel along the Great Ocean Road and see some great sights along the way. Errol was so accommodating all day and made sure we saw everything and more, as described in the tour outline. The 12 Apostles, koalas, kangaroos and more. I would highly recommend Errol for a tour, he is passionate and knowledgeable about the areas he takes his guests to. His vehicle is comfortable and he makes sure you are comfortable. So glad we booked this day with Errol.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much for the review and rating. It was an absolute pleasure to do the trip with such an able and accomodating couple such as you and Paul. My wife and I were delighted with the thoughtful gift you presented me with, brought all the way from Edmonton. The generous gratuity was a big surprise hidden in my new coffee mug. Go well and enjoy the F1 weekend and come again.

Errol is extremely personable and well informed. He communicates his love of Melbourne enthusiastically. We had interest in getting a sense of Jewish life and Errol shared that in a lovely way. If you spend a day with Errol, you will have a great time.

Errol was a fantastic tour guide. First, he has a great demeanor. talkative enough and informative, but doesn't force the conversation. You could tell he is very familiar with the area, and truly enjoys showing you around. He knew where to stop along the way, making the long drive seem so quick. He even brought us to a quick stop where we could feed some cool birds and hang out. The sites were amazing and he knew where to get the best view and beat the crowds. I strongly recommend him for any tour!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much for your comments . It was an awesome experience taking such positive young people around and I could not have done it without both your enthusiasm and enjoyment. I too wish that our paths will cross and we meet again to show you some more of Melbourne . Do keep in touch and do keep warm .. Errol

In a word .. WoW ..Errol is a wonderful guide and is so well versed in all things Australia We recommend him without hesitation and our only regret was that we didn't have more days available to tour the city

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Bob and Cathy for your review; so much appreciated. I echo your sentiments in that I would have loved to tour more with you , if only you had more days. It was an absolute pleasure being with you and I hope your trip to Sydney will be enjoyable, and your beloved Dog will be delighted to see you. Go well.

A wonderful day but even with the description we were not prepared for the length of the drive.The car,while perfectly satisfactory, was a little tight for the drive.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Don and Patsy thanks for the positive 5***** review. Visitors going along the Great Ocean road are not aware of the distance to the ultimate target ; the apostles . It is a long drive but most think it worth it. I am not sure the the meaning of the car being " a little tight for the drive " ? Thanks again for the tennis tickets which were well used and much appreciated by the recipients.

Tour: Needhams' Designer Tour, Melbourne, VIC, Australia
Date: Jan 10/19

We spent a whole day touring with Errol around Melbourne-ALL of Melbourne. We asked Errol to plan our day completely. To see what he thought we must and also throw in a lot of surprises because we like the local flair that most tourists wouldn't see. He nailed our requirements! We had a great day seeing all of Melbourne and the surrounding coastline. We saw fancy cars and fancy houses-both are interests of ours. If you want a completely custom, private tour of Melbourne we highly recommend Errol!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your wonderful referral. Dan and you were so lovely to be with that I actually got the extra inspiration and energy to show you much more than usual. I am delighted I was able to fulfil your tour ideals. I hope one day to see you again and back in Melbourne . Please do keep in touch with me. Enjoy the rest of your Ozz tour.

Errol was AMAZING, very lovely, knowledgeable and extremely entertaining personality, we never had the feeling of being boredom for the entire duration of the road trip, which was a huge plus. Being in the business for the last two decades he was so familiar with the tips and tricks of how he could put you a head of literally hundreds of other bus loaded with thousands of tourists, best photo locations, hidden gems and above all not so crowded and cleanest restrooms which turned to be a crucial issue.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for the feedback and ratings . As my passengers you deserve double five stars at least . Go well my new friends

Errol was very knowledgeable and personable. The stops were interesting and he showed a deep understanding of both the history and culture of Melbourne's Jewish community. He provided water and snacks in his car, which was comfortable and clean.

Errol is one of the best tour guides we have ever had. We had a connection with him immediately and he went above and beyond to make you day the best ever. His hospitality and his knowledge- His car is immaculate, he takes care of your needs with snacks and waters and any little desire you have!! We felt like old friends at the end and we will be sure to keep in touch!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Lisa and Adam , I simply responded to the immediate warmth and "vibe" that came from you. I enjoyed being with you as much as you enjoyed my tour and my company. In a nutshell we had fun, we laughed at JM, and we learnt about each other. We certainly must and will keep in touch, and look forward to meeting up again somewhere , some how. I wish you much success with your production of " comefromaway.com.au" and cant wait to see it in Melbourne. Bon voyage, Errol

Tour: #461337, Melbournes Mansions and more ., Melbourne, VIC, Australia    view tour
Date: Oct 26/18

I have had private tours in over 50 cities and this tour has been the most fantastic one to date! Errol is the most knowledgeable tour guide I have met, he is kind, considerate and his knowledge and love for Melbourne is beyond expectation. His car is luxurious with a huge sun roof that allowed us almost a 180 degree view. In a short time he provided me an experience of Melbourne that had me see why it is always voted the most livable city in the world. I'm so so lucky he could fit us in!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much for your awesome comments on our ' Mansions tour" of Melbourne. My passion derives no only from the city ,but my passengers as well. You, Gino, and Alice are delightful and appreciative passengers and pleasure to be with. I do hope you enjoyed your explorative tour of Melbourne city, even with out me ! I look forward to seeing you all again in marvellous Melbourne .. Go well, Errol
