David B July 2021

No crowds as it was in the reserve direction. But seeing the 12 Apostles was the highlight. Loved it. Plus small numbers

tracey s May 2021

A fantastic day led by Gui. This action filled tour takes you to all the major sites first so you go straight to the 12 Apostles before the other big tourist buses do and have the place to yourself! We visited the Apostles, Loch ard gorge, Tom and Eva, razorback and London Bridge before lunchtime and while the sun was beautiful and warm and the sky bright blue. If u want to take pix along the surf coast I suggest sitting on the right side of the bus (driver side). We even saw a few koalas at Kennett River!! Make sure you check the weather b4 u book!

Camila April 2021

I loved the experience, specially with the guide GUI. He was a such friendly , good vibe and nice guy...I hardly recommend this tour.

Binu sailaja April 2021

Our tour guide Jack was good. He covered all the places as it's been promised. We went on a windy day and overall it's a worth trip for $99.

Christopher N March 2021

The trip is smooth and the views are magnificent. The route is a bit long for a one day trip but it’s the best way Viator organises to see the 12 apostles in one day I guess.
Gui is a great tour guide.

Erin B February 2021

Excellent group to travel with and the guide was super informative. Could never have completed this in the amount of travel time we had to experience the best of this area south of Melbourne. It was a very long day, but well worth it. Well thought out stops along the way. If you are limited on time in Melbourne this is an excellent way to see the 12 apostles.

Judy D July 2020

Our guide Orlando, was knowledgable, funny and very accommodating and flexible . Great music singalong

Sophie C March 2020

Really great tour, nice views and nice people.
Our tour guide Jack was really nice as well and even propose to drop me at my hostel. I totally recommend

Debbie Hunt March 2020

The concept of doing this in reverse is great. Leanne was informative, had great suggestions for each stop so each person could opt for their personal experience. As a very tall person, I would like more leg room.

Nirosh M March 2020

Monique K March 2020

This tour was amazing. Seeing the Twelve Apostles, London bridge, Razorback, Loch Ard Gorge etc. was breathtaking. It was like being in a movie set seeing these landmarks and more in real life.

kfwetzel March 2020

Great trip, our driver and guide became ill and could not continue on the trip but the company quickly arranged for another driver and we were on the way. Then T the end of the trip he took us all to our accommodations. Really cAred about his passengers.

Oana M March 2020

Fun day trip and an easy and efficient way to see the coast line. This was the highlight of our trip to Melbourne.

Paul Y March 2020

Jack is an awesome guide, makes sure you have a great time. Amazing and beautiful sights peppered with Jacks commentary and humor. Beautiful day and super value, got to 12 apostles early before crowds, choose this tour, you won’t regret.

Mimi D February 2020

It was drizzling and foggy day to see this beautiful sightseeing but the driver was kind enough to see us when the weather was a bit better. The money I paid definitely recommend it!!! I forgot driver name(George??) He dropped everyone's hotels after sightseeing which is not included. Thank you for your kindness.

Allison S February 2020

Wow what an amazing day from start to finish. Our driver and tour guide for the day was a guy called Gui. He was so informative all through the day, and my husband Ian and i sat up front with him, and on our long journey around the great ocean road, he played some great music also. He brought us all around to see the 12 apostles, port Campbell, loch ard gorge, london bridge, and razorback and explained the history behind them all. We even stopped off and seen koalas high up in the eucalyptus trees in the wild, and we drove around and saw kangaroo's chilling out in the field. We couldnt have asked for a better tour guide to show us the beauty of it all. To see it is to beieve it. A brilliant day. Thank you Gui
