Tours from Melbourne -- with Time to Explore???

Jump to last reply

Hi --

I'll have two days off (but not 2 days in a row) while working in Melbourne. On my previous trip, I had an amazing four days, driving the Great Ocean Road and visiting the Grampians.

This time, I'm thinking about taking an organized tour on each of me days off. One day to Phillip Island to see the Koala Conservation Center, Nobbies Center, and Penguin Parade; the other day to the Dandenongs.

I'm hoping to find tours that allow a bit of time for wandering and maybe even taking a walk -- as opposed to hop off the bus, snap a photo, and move on.

Unfortunately, I probably can't afford a private tour guide and would prefer not to rent a car.

Any suggestions???

Thanks!

PS. I'm not interested in wineries or chocolate factories -- and it seems most of the tours include these.
