The tour guide Paul is entertaining and helpful. He gave us much information of the history and stories happened when we passed some places. The home made cakes were delicious. We had pretty good time.
The driver is so nice and help me save my bag while i am taking the helicopter. Nice trip!
Absolutely fantastic. The guide was up beat and personal with all tour participants. The helicopter ride was a tremendous experience...highly recommended.
From start to finish this tour lived up to its promises. The tour guide, Chris, was very welcoming and enthusiastic and learned everyone by first name. He knew his local knowledge and I feel went above and beyond what was expected. The tour itself was magnificent and we had decent stops along the way. Lunch was included even though it said it was excluded on the Viator website which was a bonus. I highly recommend doing the Great Ocean Road in this fashion. A small group where it was easy to get to know other people and make new friends even if only for a day. I will be sending more business this way.
Great trip Steve was a great tour guide we saw every thing we wanted to see.what a great place Australia is
Great tour. Guide was friendly. Although it was a long day, the trip was well paced. Recommend to anyone.
Very informative tour, seeing the maximum possible in one long day. The helicopter flight over the Apostles was awesome and a must do.
This is a stunning trip. Another long day, but climaxes with the rock formations around the 12 Apostles and a few other nearby spots. GOR is stunning. Picturesque roadway, turquoise water of the Bass Straight and Southern Ocean are amazing. Long bus ride is well broken up with stops for tea, lunch and snacks (and bathroom breaks). Would recommend the optional helicopter ride. My first one was exciting and provided amazing views of the 12 Apostles
This tour is a "must do" one. Absolutely breathtaking and exhilarating. You MUST take the helicopter option. Our tour guide Leisa was brilliant - GoWest Tours should hold on to her tight as she has the touch with people. Only one downside - the brochure said "restaurant lunch" however we got ham and salad rolls and ate them on the bus as we were in a hurry to get to the next location.
I took this day trip in mid-December during a month long stay in Melbourne. There was a slight hitch with my pick up spot but this was quickly rectified by my very friendly, engaging and knowledgeable driver and guide Travis who made the day a pleasure from beginning to end. It's a really long day for group members because of the distance you have to cover, but even longer for tour guides who don't have the luxury of the opportunity to nap in between stops. Travis might well have been exhausted but he certainly didn't let on, answering many questions and giving us the benefit of his local knowledge and experience as well as his good humour throughout. The Great Ocean Road itself is spectacular and this trip is excellent value. I had read many comments online about how it's impossible to cram the spectacle into a single day, and of course it would be nice to have more time at certain spots, but if your time or budget is limited and just want a taste of the beauty and awe of Australian coastal scenery, you'd be a fool not to take this trip. At times I was left feeling genuinely humbled and overwhelmed by what was in front of my eyes. My single piece of advice would be to make sure you take a jacket or hoodie on even the warmest of days as I certainly felt the chill waiting for my early morning pick up on Bourke Street and by the sea, but I'd take this trip again in a heartbeat just to see how different everywhere looks in different weather conditions. Many thanks to Go West Tours and Travis for making my last minute booking a smooth, enjoyable and memorable one. I'll be back soon, Melbourne! 3
Bec, our tour guide was great! Professional and very knowledgable! Loved the sightseeing and heli ride near 12 apostles.
