TRAVELLING WITH US
We are your LGBTQ+ Friendly guides! We emigrated from the UK in 2005 and have called Victoria, Australia ever since We spent the first 5 years in Melbourne, before moving to Phillip Island, and then onto Apollo Bay on The Great Ocean Road where we ran a gay friendly accommodation business. We used to love hosting friends and family from overseas and gained so much joy from showing them our local area, that in 2017 we decided to swap the accommodation business for a Private Touring business - and have never looked back! We are both seasoned travellers (which is why you will see our calendar blocked for July and August every year, when we leaves these shores on our own adventures!) so we are well positioned to know what guests want from their tour/vacation experience.
All our vehicles have complimentary bottled water to hand, comfy leather seating, UV protected windows, privacy blinds, USB charging ports. We also provide complimentary in-car wifi incase you need to keep in touch with family, friends or work colleagues
James & Andy
We are a Gay couple, originally from the UK, but came to Australia to seek a new life Down Under in 2005.
We decided to test the husband & wife stereotype in Regional Victoria, by running our own accommodation business on The Great Ocean Road - for over a decade!
We compliment each others strengths and weaknesses, which has meant not just a successful partnership in life, but also in business too.
Hi, my name is James. I grew up in London, UK before moving to the south coast to be closer to the sea. I think that's why I was drawn to The Great Ocean Road & Phillip so much. I have been working in the Tourism Industry for the last 25 years.
I fell in love with Victoria, Australia, from the diverse wildlife to the quaint coastal towns, to the hidden beauty spots and friendly locals. For me, Victoria has it all.
Aside from travel and live theatre, my main passion is Soccer. I play for Melbourne's only LGBTQ+ soccer club, since its inception 12 years ago and still represent their committee.
Hi, my name is Andy. I'm originally from Plymouth in the UK. Prior to moving to Australia, I worked in Michelin graded restaurants in the UK followed by several top wineries in New Zealand.
It has been really enjoyable to work for VIC Rainbow Tours helping plan holidays of a lifetime for people.
My main hobbies are travel, socialising with friends and going to live music concerts at every given opportunity!
