Your LGBTQ+ Friendly guides James & Andy 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 the Private Tour business - and have never looked back! We both have a passion for travel (which is why you will see our calendar blocked for July and August every year!) so we know what travellers want out of their 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's which has meant not just a successfull partnership, but also in business too.


I grew up in London, UK before moving to the south coast to be closer to the sea.  


I'm in love with so many aspects of this area, from the diverse wildlife to the quaint coastal towns, from the hidden beauty spots to the friendly locals. For me, Victoria has it all.


Prior to moving to Australia, I worked in several top wineries in New Zealand and Michelin graded restaurants in the UK.


It has been really enjoyable to work for VIC Rainbow Tours helping plan holidays of a lifetime for people.
