Judy D July 2020

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


Kayleigh C June 2020

Great tour visiting lots of spectacular sights, and the timeframe in which to do this was perfect. Tour guide was very knowledgable and friendly. Great day spent out. Definitely worth it.


Elina M March 2020

It was such a nice day! We saw koalas, kangaroos, and amazing views. Our guide Peter was super nice and professional, and we learned a lot about the Great Ocean Road! The bus was comfortable and everything went smoothly. This is a great way to see as much as possible if you don’t have a lot of time to spare - although on the road I kind of hoped I had taken a several day trip as there were so many amazing places where I would’ve liked to stay for longer. I definitely recommend this trip for everyone! One thing to keep in mind though if you’re young like me; this is not a backpacker tour, so if you’re looking for a younger crowd, this might not be the best one for you. I really enjoyed it though! :)


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


Annie M March 2020

Franka B March 2020

Had a great trip, Peter was an amazing guide, had lots of interesting informations and facts about the GOR! Would do it again everything!


Cora W March 2020

Wonderful trip and very well organised . Left on time and had plenty of time at each location . We even stopped along the road to see koalas and kangaroos .


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

Its amazing trip....with nice and driver was nice person , Jack he was really helpful and friendly best guide i ever had so far.


Laura S March 2020

The guide showed us amazing „secret“ places and had a lot to tell us. The small groups were nice. We really enjoyed ourselves and would definitely book this tour again.


Bailey W March 2020

This trip was amazing! it was great to get up early and beat the crowds! Our guide Gui was great!! He did a great job making sure everyone was happy. Consistently asking if anyone needed photos. He also let us ride along to the place where the van gets cleaned since we wanted to go see the penguins around sunset.


Kamilla R. K March 2020

Great guide and good value for money. We had an amazing time visiting the highlights of the Great Ocean Road.


Anna Elena S March 2020

Leanne was the best guide !!!! She told us all the information and she was always kind with us. In every stop she explained us what we were looking and show the best photo spots


Elizabeth K March 2020

Although a long day of in and out of a van, the time was worth the experience. Our guide was beyond knowledgeable, accommodating, patient, and made numerous stops allowing plenty of time for us to take in breathtaking views. The only negative would be the suggested restaurant for lunch; I would recommend else where (12 Rock Beach Bar where my son has eaten several times). Sitting in the very back of the van is quite uncomfortable with bumpy roads. Two amazing tourists offered to change places with us and we were beyond appreciative.


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.


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.


Ildiko N March 2020

Peter was an excellent guide. We have seen so many fantastic, breathtaking panorama and interesting things.


Mats N March 2020

Excellent tour , must do in Melbourne. You see something nice and interesting on every stop you have.


Kristen H March 2020

Great tour! Jack was a great tour guide. We beat the crowds in the morning and made a few bonus stops on the way.


Jecy Jane A March 2020

The day was beautiful and our guide Matthew did his best to make our trip really amazing. He made sure we were always informed about the stops and what to expect. His being prepared and knowledgeable really helped to make the experience amazing thank you Matthew! Getting the reverse tour was the best idea because you get to see the main attraction first and we had a lot of extra stops that were bonus from our guide so it was really awesome! All in all was stress free and fun!


Syed Mehdi R March 2020

Leanne was a great Guide, Host and a very humble person ! Moreover, entire trip members were very friendly and communicated well among us during the travel. This trip is very good due to Reverse direction to avoid crowds, traffic congestion and enjoy scenes !


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.

For a full refund, cancel at least 24 hours in advance of the start date of the experience.
