|Questions and Answers
M17040 provides small group day touring services from Melbourne to the Great Ocean Road and to Phillip Island for the world famous Penguin Parade.
1. How long has the business been operating and how did it start?
M17040 has been operating since 2000. We decided to establish our own operation as we believed that many purported "tours" were really little more than shuttle buses between sightseeing destinations. Our operation endeavours to bring a more wholistic approach to the Melbourne tourism experience.
2. What is your company's mission?
To provide the most entertaining, informative and memorable day tours of Victoria, to enjoy ourselves and to make friends along the way while running a profitable enterprise.
3. What does your company specialize in?
M17040 specialises in small group one day tours from Melbourne.
4. Who is the founder or owner of the company and briefly describe his/her past activities?
M17040's proprietors - Terry & Fiona Smit - have a strong background in tourism, having extensive international experience in the tourism industry in not only Australia, but also Europe and Africa.
5. What is your most popular travel package and why?
Our most popular tour is our tour down the Great Ocean Road although our Phillip Island tour is catching up in popularity. This is because most people have heard of the Great Ocean Road and the Twelve Apostles. With more and more destination marketing Phillip Island is becoming more and more known. Both tours are great and if you get the chance you should see both!
6. What is the best compliment you received from a client?
Just would like to say that we,me and my friend Christina, have had the best experience. We booked two tours with M17040 in Melbourne. Our experience was just perfect and wonderful. I am going back in May with an American friend and the reason I am going to take him there is so he can enjoy this wonderful experience also. I highy recommend this company to all.
