We set off from Melbourne to see the Great Ocean Road. Quite a distance had to be covered in one day (600km) from memory. Departing at 7:15am and returning at 7:30pm the day was long and maybe could have been shortened by skipping a few less exciting stops. We did see a wild koala on one brief stop which was a treat. The bus wasn’t the most comfortable as it was quite small with limited leg room and no arm rests. The main highway out of Melbourne didn’t appear to be the smoothest and on a small bus with poor suspension, we did feel a little sick at times. The last 2 stops of the day were the best- Loch an Gorge and The Twelve Apostles and we had ample time for these. There were limited opportunities to buy refreshments after the lunch stop as the shop at the apostles was unexpectedly closed. I would advise a different stop on the way back to Melbourne with a refreshment opportunity as there were plenty that we passed close to the toilet stop. Our guide Troy delivered some interesting information and overall we enjoyed the tour.

The Great Ocean Road is definitely listed as one of Australia's top attractions for a reason. The small group environment on this tour was a great way to see it in a personalized setting. Our tour guide Ezra was fantastic and kept us informed and entertained throughout the day. This tour is a long day starting at 7am and returning back to Melbourne at 9pm. Having a great guide made all the difference to keep the energy. In addition to beautiful seascapes, we saw an abundance of wildlife including wild koalas, parrots, and even an echidna waddling along on one of the trails.

It was a rainy day and a bit foggy so visibility of the 12 Apostles was limited, that said, our guide Shannara made the entire day 5 star despite inclement weather We saw koalas, kangaroos, and much more in the wild, had epic scenery along the way, and a playlist in the van that made the entire (long) day a pleasure from start to finish - bravo Autopia and Shannara - you rock!

Lori_C March 2020

Beautiful scenery, nice pace, great guide and really enjoyable day. We had 7 stops in total and each one was worthy of our time. Our only regret was that we didn’t take the two or three day journey from Melbourne to Adelaide.

It was a very hot summer’s day on our trip. We felt that our transport was outdated with the air-conditioning barely coping and neither was the “promised” wifi working adequately.

Wonderful trip. Our guide Kurt was very experienced. He totally outlined our day so we knew what was coming up. The stops were all worthwhile and enjoyable. My husband is a tall man and found the seats rather confining.

Kurt is amazing! So funny and a great tour guide. From spotting koalas, kangaroos, snails, rainforest walks, all the way to the grand finale of the Great Apostles, this tour exceeded my expectations and is worth more than the low cost.

The seat is tight and small. Other than that, it was a great trip. Our driver, Beck, was a good driver. If you are interested in potentially seeing wild koalas, this is a great tour. Wish we had more time in the 12 apostles.

Daniel_H December 2019

Our bus driver was very good. Very informative and interesting. It's a tough ask to get this much driving done on a one day tour so I was pretty happy with it. Of course, being a bus tour, you spend alot of time on the bus. My only issue was with the seating. Unless you are lucky enough to have a set of chairs to yourself, prepare to be a little cosy with the person next to you. Not a whole lot of leg room. Not a small group tour! To me, a small group tour is 10 or so. This was not Other then that I was pretty chuffed. The Otaway Forrest stop was very good and the views a long the great ocean road where consistently amazing.

To visit Greate Ocean road is a must if you are in Melbourne or Adelaide. This trip was advetaized as a small group tour with comfortable busses. However this was not what we discovered. Our bus was very uncomfortable and to ride in it for a hole day was not so nice. In general the tour was good and our guide gave us a lot of nice stories and information on the history of the area.

We were on the Great Ocean road, 12 Apostles with driver and guide Daniel T. He was entertaining and amusing during the ride, he is knowledgeable too and shares lots of stories during the trip. Great driver and guide!
