5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2016

Best Viator Trip by far - coach driver excellent - views amazing could certainly limit the HOUR spent at the botanical gardens and spend more time at Brighton Bathing Boxes and St Kilda - only had time to order a coffee n cake at St Kilda and barely had time to eat or drink purchases - limit Gardens to 20mis Max other than that fantastic. First time along Great Ocean Road and seeing the Twelve Apostles just incredible thank you

Gary was our driver/guide on Day 1 - Melbourne City Tour and he was fabulous. A great way to see so much of the city. Day 2 Great Ocean Road was long day but amazing! Geoff drove the bus, made us Billy Tea and was tour guide. Very knowledgeable. Thoroughly enjoyed both trips.

This trip was all I expected and more, The trip on the Yarra was lovely and the bus trip around Melbourne and up to the Ranges was great and the bus drives was very informative I know we couldn't have done this by driving ourselves.
The great ocean road trip was again over what I expected and again a very informative driver.
