Great guide! Many stops on the way. Trip a little bit tiring, but definitely worth it. The views are stunning!
Fabulous trip ,scenery stunning, guide,Dave very knowledgeable and passed all his knowledge on to ,absolutely no complaints also no problem being an older lady on her own.Highly recommend it
Most beautiful and spectacular sights we have ever seen! 12 Apostles and the koalas in the wild were fantastic
The great ocean road is super windy so people who get car sickness easily should probably prepare for that. Apart from that, the view during the ride is fantastic. All the attractions we went to was breathtaking but the best attraction would be loch ard gorge. That place is absolutely beautiful and is definitely the highlight of this whole trip.
Enjoyable day trip / a little rushed on some stops / a little more talking from our driver/ guide about points of interest is needed. Seats on the bus very hard for sitting on a long day trip.
We have a great time, our guide Jeremy is fantastic. The helicopter ride is awesome. First time seeing a Koala in wild
The staff were very friendly and helpful. Our tour guide/driver, Rob, is a 1st class guide who took the time to get to know everyone in the group, making us feel at home. He looked after everyone's needs and has such a wacky personality! One of the fellow visitors felt ill during the road trip and Rob was so patient and kind to provide assistance to him. What a champ!
Great Ocean Road is the most iconic landmark/tourist attraction in Victoria. Long drive but worth the experience, I will definitely recommend this tour!
Good tour. Horrible food. Eat on your own.
Very long day mostly on a bus. Could probably leave out the Lighthouse. Lunch was not good. Served food w/ flies all over it. Went inside and bought separate food.
