Jono took our Japanese group to Heathcoat wineries. Excellent private tour. Our guide Jono was incredibly knowledgable, cheerful and gave us a fantastic day! We learnt about history, culture, features and much more. He was well traveled and have flexibility, high standards, and we were very happy with Jono's tour - he had great memory and experience in Japan and all over the world, we also enjoyed chatting with him!

We loved our 1 day winery tour in Heathcote. Jono had picked some great independent venues where you got to meet the owners and everything was well organised from start to finish. The bus was comfy and clean, price was very good value and Jono was a great host. Would definitely recommend!

My wife and I took a 2-day Great Ocean Walk with Jono. We started at Blanket Bay and finished at Johanna Beach. Then he took us to see the 12 Apostles. It couldn't have been more fun. Jono is a very engaging guide and host. He took care of every detail. He is extremely well-traveled, and it was fun to hear about his adventures. The walks each day were broken into 1 1/2 to 2 hour sections with Jono greeting us at the ends with snacks and cold drinks. His camping equipment made the chilly evening manageable. We highly recommend Jono and Good Times.

We called on Jono to organise a private wine tour of the Yarra Valley and had a great day out! He organised our tastings and booked lunch for us and then gave us the flexibility on the day to add in other venues. The group all appreciated his local knowledge and relaxed personality.
