    I just got back from Philip Island with Daniel for the day. I'd originally booked for the "Penguin Plus" experience, but got a call from Autopia yesterday saying that the centre had run out of tickets, so I would only be able to get general admission. This was unfortunate, but the lady on the phone was very apologetic, and offered me a refund of the extra price (which I took), or to rebook on another day. I also received a goodwill voucher code for another tour. On the tour itself, our guide (Daniel) had a note on his clipboard that I was originally booked for Penguins Plus. It was really nice to know that Autopia wanted to fix it. Throughout the day, he did everything he could to try to get me a ticket, and managed to find that someone had cancelled a ticket last minute that I could upgrade to! It's things like this that make a great tour company stand out from a good tour company. Even with a bus of 20 people, I didn't feel like "just another tourist". The rest of the tour was great too, seeing koalas, wallabees and of course the penguins! I would definitely recommend

    After almost 3 years, we have finally made up our mind flying to Melbourne for holiday amidst Covid-19 with our 6 year old child. The outcome was amazing and we had enjoyed ourselves to the most. We have joined Autopia Tours Australia for the Melbourne snow tour at Lake Mountain on 30/7/2022. Our guide was Shane and he was such a wonderful and caring person to all of us. He was very attentive to our needs and well-being to ensure that we were always comfortable throughout the journey. Lake Mountain has very beautiful views and we love the snow play experience there. The tour continued with stops at Steavenson Falls and Yarra Valley Chocolaterie and Ice Creamery too. Lookout at the waterfalls were exciting and everyone of us had some delicious sweet treats at Yarra Valley towards the end of our trip. The overall journey was fantastic.

    Daniel is an Epic legend. We have been to so many tours in Australia, can't remember other guides except Daniel. He is probably one of the top guides in Australia. He's also an Aussie"David Attenborough" and Jack of All trades. He has a warm heart, the knowledge of nature and human harmony. He picked us up when it was dark and cold but he filled the van with music, laugh and happiness. What's more,we saw the snow ❄️ without need to put on the chain. The boys said it was the time Daniel gave it to them was most memorable! Thanks Dan,wish you all the best in Batmania. We will be Back!-if can book with you again

    Litchfield National Park - Top End Day Trip from Darwin was fantastic!!! A great way to see all the best the Top End has to offer in one day. You have the option of doing the Jumping Crocs which is highly recommended. Litchfield National Park is beautiful and we visited Florence Falls (stunning), Buley Rockhole and finally Wangi Falls which was probably my favourite spot in the Top End. Paul and Jay were our tour guides and they were very energetic and knowledgeable and fun to spend the day with. It is much easier to hop on a bus and be driven around to all the spots rather than do all the driving yourself and try to work out where to go. This is my pick of tours for the Top End.

    What an amazing experience. Very professional guides and a fun filled journey. Well first day our trip to Lake Mountain got cancelled due to bad weather conditions but we were already midway.. Our guide Craig was very thoughtful and made sure families still had fun and was amazing. Autopia booked us for Lake Mountain tour for second day and this time we had lovely Britanny as our guide,who was even more amazing. Being a fresh graduate, Britanny did an amazing job and was super awesome. Very professional and knowledgeable guides, very professional staff from office, Amar, Vanessa or anyone who interacted with us through last 2 days have been very professional. I am definitely booking again through Autopia. Definitely 5 star rating.
