star-5
See the Great Ocean Road, Grampians National Park & the 12 Apostles on a small group camping trip with a maximum of 15 likeminded travellers. Our trip is done nicely, we stay in private campgrounds with showers and toilets, eat good food and drive around in an A/C Mercedes minibus. We also encourage you participate in many fun, adventurous activities so you aren't just going around in a bus and seeing sites (you will get to do that too though!) Unlike a lot of tour operators, which have a corporate office and then use contractors as guides, Hop To It Tours is a small, local tour operator, meaning a much more personalised service. We only run tours from Melbourne so we make sure we show you all the best spots. Our tours are professionally run and will get you to see many of the major highlights around Victoria. It is also timed so that you get to the major spots when other tour companies aren't there, giving us the best chance to enjoy the site rather than fight the masses!
