Geelong Tour Guides
Geelong is not only a top global tourist destination - it has the world's best tour guide. That's according to passengers on the luxury cruise liner Seabourn Odyssey, February 2014.


Geelong entertainer Colin Mockett was named ‘World’s Best Tour Guide’ by a coachload of (mainly American) Seabourn Odyssey tourists at the end of their four-hour tour in February 2014. Their unsolicited rationale was; “we’re on a world tour, you are the best guide we’ve encountered – that makes you the best in the world!”.
Colin recruited and tutored Geelong’s other cruise-liner tour-guides, too, mainly from the city’s entertainment/theatre community. But good guides are just part of the Geelong tour experience. Our history has gifted us a destination second to none as an Australian destination. We have the lot: The world’s oldest living culture – our Wathaurong community has been here for 60,000 years – our century of wool heritage and fortune made from the gold rushes led to our art-deco landscape waterfront. Our  industrial sector was built on a wealth of migrant/refugee labour – and now we’re re-inventingourselves yet again in the post-industrial era as a university city with a strong tourism culture.
Colin and the guides don’t only show all this to luxury liner passengers. They conduct walking tours for groups and schools, provide ‘step-on guides’ for bus tourists – and provide bespoke tours for conventions and events.
