Great day trip, it was the highlight of our trip to Melbourne. The whole day was excellently organised, long but well worth it, I even saw Koala bears in the wild! Our guide Kurt, was knowledgeable, entertaining and what more can I say it was a great day!!

Stunning views! This was a great tour. We were able to see so many places in a short amount of time (maximizing our trip). Admittedly, it felt a bit rushed (including bathroom stops), but our driver, Sylvain was very accommodating.

It was very nice to go to all the places but the time management was off. There wasn’t much time at the main places people wanted to see and too much time at the smaller less eventful stops

We chose this tour provider because of a review stating that it had more sights/stops to help break up a long but eventful day. That was great insight into the nature of the experience. I’m 100% sure we had experiences that were missed by other tour groups. Well done.

Stunning day trip

It was an early pick up at 7.15 and whilst it was a 12 hour trip the time flew in. Our tour guide and driver Maj was very good giving a running commentary all about the Great Ocean Road and at all interesting places and stops. We had around 6 stops from memory from morning tea/coffee to comfort breaks and 30/45 minute stops at interesting places and for lunch. The highlight of the day was the 12 Apostles which were stunning and the pictures taken with my phone and camera will ensure this memory will last forever. If you are in Melbourne this is a must tour. We were dropped off back in Melbourne around 7.15pm in time for dinner in Chinatown.
