Amazing day! Out of this world! Thank you! Jake our tour guide and driver was wonderful! Thank you too!
We absolutely enjoyed our Full Day Great Ocean Road and 12 Apostles Sunset tour. The driver was brilliant and very informative, we stopped at several places along the way to take time for photo opportunities. I would recommend and love to go back and do this tour again.
Beautiful scenery along the Coast, but The Apostle's at sunset was over-the-top! Driver was thoughtful but clever.
The staff especially the tourist guide was friendly, professional, entertaining! She look after us and make sure everyone is ok! I recommend it 100 percent I’ll definitely book again from this company! Alex
Great trip, excellent guide. The weather wasn't very good (low temp and high wind) but in the end that made the scenery more spectacular.
Jake was knowledgeable, funny and took good care of us. Well done.
Amazing trip, staff super friendly and well informed ( Nuddy and Terry(not sure about spelling)), all the time with information and the enough time to take pics. I will repeat with my family next time.
Great customer experience, chiefly down to a great bunch of folk, but importantly, our tour guide BEAR !!! He was excellent and kept the whole show on the road for 13 hours !!! Plenty comfort breaks and refreshment stops. Highly recommended, Graham (Scotland)
We wanted to see the Great Ocean Road and the 12 Apostles however wondered about our ability to survive the 12 hr day. The view is worth the trip. June was our guide and driver—he is just delightful! Friendly, knowledgeable of the sights and their history, and full of joy. June perfectly timed our sunset arrival at the 12 Apostles and as a bonus we were able to see many other beautiful places along the way. Lunch provided was good and refreshing. June provided ‘after sunset’ tea, coffee and cookies which hit the spot.Highly recommend this tour. Very long day however we’ll worth it. You can sleep the next day!
Ian was such a great driver and guide. Made tons of dad jokes which I enjoyed hahha! He also shared a lot about australian aborigines which made this tour very insightful as well. This is my second time to the 12 Apostles and the sunset view is definitely much better than going in the afternoon (IMO). Highly recommended!
This was one of the highlights of my trip to Melbourne. The van they provided was spacious and our tour guide Steve was amazing! I went with two friends and we all would recommend this tour! A must if you are in the area!
It's a good experience, it's a long long day trip but it's worth it. Wonderful experience. Bunyip with tour guide Jun.
You can enjoy everything along the Great Ocean Road by joining the Bunyip tour. Our tour guide Jun is very informative and helpful. It is a very long day which takes you almost 13 hours of ride. The experience is great with wonderful arrangement.
Amazing! I highly recommend this tour especially if you're travelling solo!
Our tour guide , Chris did a good job on the trip . He was passionate with his job . Highly appreciated ! And we were so lucky to see the pretty sunset which was the magnificent backdrop for the amazing stones! Good timing !
This is a fantastic way to see the great ocean road and our driver Chris was outstanding guide
Excellent tour, and our guide, Chris, was also excellent.
Our tour guides were wonderful. Loved everything we saw on this trip. A must-do adventure if you are in Melbourne.
A great day and a must do when In Melbourne. Our tour guide June was brilliant.
Be prepared for a long day but it's worth it!
as mentioned as Insider picked. Yee ! very good trip. we visited a lot of place with in time.sunset is very very beautiful place. we arrived just in time. Tour guide Chris is very good and he support all member of visitor, safe drive also. we Than to him.
The trip overall was amazing! Great lunch, fabulous well paced stops with amazing views, we even had a koala in a tree with some fabulous native birds nearby one stop. The driver was fantastic. We had a couple college students on the bus who were extremely loud most of the trip which was not anyone's fault but might suggest some bus etiquette reminders to help with that on future trips or pass out ear plugs - they were over the top loud and talking inappropriately for mixed company.
I cannot recommend this tour highly enough, it was totally amazing. The tour was made even better by our tour guide Kate who was absolutely brilliant. She got involved with us all on the tour, she was extremely informative, was a local girl, knew everything about where we were going. Kate actually made the day. From the first stop at the Farmers Market to the last stop at the 12 Apostles it was a brilliant day. There are numerous stops during the day, for sight seeing, coffee breaks, toilet breaks, so it's not all day on a bus. When i am back in Australia, i shall being doing this again and would be spending time overnight. A day isn't long enough, once you've had a taste of all the places along this stunning coast road you will want to come back.
It was wonderful experience. We have enjoyed this trip. Our tour guide was absolutely amazing. We stopped in different places such as Maid's Rest, the 12 Apostles inevitable and Loch Are Gorge and took a lot of wonderful pictures. He gave a lot of information about the history and ecology of the region. We spend the whole day starting from 9am till 11:30pm tour was so organised. In addition our lunch was absolutely delicious ,everything was organic and home-food. We highly recommend to choose this trip and enjoy it, as we did.
Had a great time on this tour. Scenery was beautiful and Chris Hayward was awesome!
