We heard of Walk 91, thanks to Deb (on the internet).The itinerary was very good!
Walk91 were very flexible. They were providing much more than expected so that was fantastic! It was easy to find the meeting spots each day. It is nice to have different types of walk everyday : bush, sand, rock, etcGo with a great group and you’ll have a great time!
We have just returned home from our holiday in Victoria. We had a wonderful time doing the Great Ocean Walk.
Thank you for organising the transport for my wife between the accommodations. The drivers were very helpful. The Eco Lodge was a lovely place to stay and the staff could not have been nicer to us. The same goes for the B&B, they could not have done more to ensure that we had a pleasant stay there. The accommodation at the B&B was really first class. The food at the Farmhouse was very good.
I wanted to thank you both for the excellent help your company was to me when I first approached you for information regarding the Great Ocean walk. Your information was helpful and all the booking arrangements went according to plan.
My walking partner Graham and I appreciated your briefing and advice prior to our leaving the YHA and we thoroughly enjoyed the wonderful walk even though the weather tried to dampen our spirit by raining, hailing and provided us with muddy tracks etc.
All of this paled into insignificance as we were rewarded with such wonderful country to walk through and so many spectacular views along the coast. Thank you so much for your assistance and for your encouragement – we did not see any other walkers along the way and felt as though we owned the whole track to ourselves. It was a great walk and one we would be keen to “do” again some day.
We first heard about Walk 91 through friends who recommended your company. We thought our itinerary was professionally organized and well done. We were all very satisfied with the package that was provided and thought that the accommodation was very good.
We had no problems at all finding the meeting spots each day.
The great ocean walk is a wonderful walk , although Parks Victoria could improve the walk by having a few more markers with distances indicated.
Great walk and well organized! Many thanks.
We saw some publicity about the Great Ocean Walk when it first opened but first learned about Walk 91 while doing an internet search of walk tour providers.
We were happy with the arrangements and recognise that pick-up arrangements are constrained by the number of vehicle access points near the Walk. The distance each day was appropriate for the conditions on the Walk and manageable at our level of fitness.
The accommodation was excellent. Having the laminated guides to flora and fauna..provided in the cost of the package was great and we referred to the latter frequently. That just shows how much wildlife there was to see on the Walk.
The accommodation was excellent and we were very happy with all the accommodation providers. They all took an interest in us, the breakfasts and lunches were all top class and where evening meals were provided they were great. They were all very flexible in altering their plans to fit in with changes we requested to pick-up or drop-off times.
We found the meeting spots easily each day. The photographs of meeting points were a handy reference to provide confidence that we were at the right spot, but were not vital.
Overall we were very happy. Coastal scenery is the main attraction of the Walk and there was plenty of that with lots of great ocean, beach and cliff scenes. Where the Walk headed away from the coast there were still things to attract our interest.
We would recommend the installation of some progress distance markers along the track to give you some idea of how much further it is to various landmarks or meeting points.We found our GPS useful (when it worked) to give an idea of distance covered but it is not essential.
Thanks Mark… we did have a very enjoyable time on our walk. It was very well organised and we found all the hosts very hospitable and very willing to make us comfortable and certainly fed us very well!! Great accommodation at the end of the day really “tops” it off.
The walk was challenging in certain areas and especially on the very hot New Eve day, when temps reached in high 30’s. The coastline is very spectacular and beautiful, and we certainly appreciated the cooling ocean breezes on those steeper ascents and climbs.
We will certainly refer this walk to other friends.Thank you for your organisation and assistance.
I found Walk91 and the Great Ocean Walk by Internet search.
The Great Ocean Walk was stunning! Loved it all except crossing the blowhole by myself!
My driver was excellent flexible, reliable and informative. Make sure if you go to the tavern/pub to try the chicken with pesto and Mediterranean vegetables!
I prefer to walk in a group but enjoyed the personal challenges of walking alone this time. It was a memorable experience and thanks for helping me achieve this.
The walk was wonderful. The only disappointment being the untidy way it finishes on the last day. There should at least be a sign at the final car park saying that the walk was finished.
It is not far from being one of the best walks in the world and I think a little thing like a dedicated finish would leave the walkers with a sense of closure, as any great walk should.
My advice is to take the trip and enjoy the walk. It is a special and wonderful experience.
We recommend blister Band-Aids. I had never heard of them but was lucky enough to be given one by another walker and it made a tremendous difference to the quality of my walk. I would advise all walkers to have proper hiking boots. Walking the track revealed many skid marks where some walkers had struggled on wet ground.
Thanks for a great experience and I am sure I will take the track again.
Thank you for organising our Great Ocean Walk for us, we had a very enjoyable holiday that we will remember for years to come.
We came to Melbourne / Yarra Valley for a friend’s wedding, her father recommended the Great Ocean Walk and from there I found Walk 91 on the internet (Google). I also spoke to two other operators but chose Walk 91 because of the fast & informative response to my enquiries and questions.
The itinerary you put together for us was a short one comprising of 4 days, the flexibility you offered suited us well.
The Great Ocean Walk is varied in both terms of scenery and difficulty, we really enjoyed the variation. We took all the inland options at decision points which in my view made the walk more interesting, we really enjoyed the inland sections; it added further variety and a change of scenery that was not seen elsewhere. If clients have time (we didn’t) don’t do the Great Ocean Walk too fast and enjoy the scenery Walk 91 offer a fantastic service, they are friendly, helpful and flexible.
A superb experience we will recommend to our friends and family.
We first found Walk 91 via an internet search. The length of walking each day was about right, and caused no great difficulties.
We enjoyed the walk very much – especially walking on long stretches of beach, where few (or none) other people can be seen also, the very different scenery and wildlife.
The accommodation and food was excellent, and the hosts were all very helpful and informative.
