Fred is now a famous Melbourne Tour Guide and a highly valued guide and member of the Oceania Tours team.
So popular with our guests, some even hunt him down during his overseas holidays.
In October 2017, he met up with honeymooners Alice & Gianfranco that he had welcomed to Melbourne a year earlier.
The happy couple took a two hour train ride into London to spend just one hour with Fred.
Fred says “it’s things like that, that makes this job sooo special”
What do our guests say about Fred on Trip Advisor?
“We recently did the Great Ocean Road tour and were lucky enough to meet Fred, What can I say that hasn’t already been said in praise of Fred? He was an exceptionally good guide , He was very attentive to our needs throughout the day. He provided water, TimTams and frequently checked that we were comfortable in the bus, He also shared his extensive knowledge of Melbourne, the Ocean Road and nature and at the same time entertained us with all his little personal stories. It was quite obvious to us that he genuinely loves Melbourne and his job, lucky for Oceania Tours, What an asset to the company! By the end of the day we felt we were saying goodbye to an old friend”

“Spent 4 hours with Fred. We laughed and learned the whole time. He is witty, charming, entertaining and knowledgeable. Learned things about Melbourne and Australia…educated and entertained at the same time…what a combination! We had already seen many parts of Melbourne, but he was able to adapt his tour to fit our needs and keep it interesting. He is an excellent tour guide. We were sad we couldn’t book other tours with him. He made it an excellent adventure for us”. Jon and Sherlyn “Sam” Fischer
