Great views along the road! Was run by the AAT Kings tour company. Had a great driver, who provided some great knowledge throughout the tour, and also knew when to go silent and let everyone enjoy the view. The pacing was also pretty good, and I never felt rushed. I was able to enjoy the tour.
This was a most enjoyable experience. our tour guide Roger was very knowledgeable and accommodating to all our needs. He rearranged the schedule to ensure the best experience at the 12 Apostles and was happy to help in any way. A great day trip for anyone considering this tour!!! Thanks
Thoroughly enjoyable day, long tour from 7:00am till 8:00pm but understandable because of the distance travelled. Bus driver guide very knowledgable. Had a fantastic day and will recommend to others.
Drivers historical and geographical knowledge was amazing and made the trip so much more than just a coach ride. I would also highly recommend the Apollo Bay Hotel for lunch. A long long day but wouldn't have missed it for the world.
Everything was perfect on this tour. The driver, the time given to know each site and the spectacular visual course! Simply beautiful! wonderful.
Nothing comes close in nature tours when it comes to Great Ocean Road tour. The driver was great and had complete knowledge about the places. The stops were perfect and the scenery picture perfect. Only downside being that the tour is very long (almost 14 hours from and back to hotel). But it is totally worth it!!! Highly recommended alongside penguins parade tour.
We had a wonderful time this is a great tour with a great company. We also used them 4 years ago in Tazmania. Only thing I would like to see changed is please make the size of your tours smaller ( smaller buses, less people) group was way too large
It's one of the best tours ever!
It worth the the travrel time and the price!
The tour was absolutely marvelous and I highly recommend it.
Driver-guide was absolutely wonderful. He provided a lot of interesting information, was very attentive to tourists needs and went out of his way to make the excursion the most pleasurable experience. He also informed tourists about the option to take a helicopter tour, which was an unforgettable experience.
I enjoyed my tours with AAT Kings and brought home the best memories of Australia.
The guides of AAT Kings are the credit to the tourist industry. I am very grateful to them and wish them all the best in the New 2015 Year.
Great Ocean Road was amazing, defiantly recommend it to everyone !
Well done tour - excellent guide with entertaining anecdotes, plenty of photo ops and decent food stops along the way.
Informative guide, great stops along the way and a memorable experience !
Excellent trip.Scenery excellent.Try and get a seat up front on left side of bus as you strain a bit on the other side.
Also suggest not to purchase the lunch in advance as very restricted menu.Better off ordering from the Board
The tour was really great. Paul the driver was very accomodating and gave us lots of opportunities to stop in all the most stunning spots. I would recommend the fish and chips too. Only niggle was that the first 'coffee stop' was not great. If they can fix that to get a decent cappucchino and good toilet facilities. I didn't downgrade the tour because of that though as the tour itself was brilliant.
This was a great tour and I recommend it highly,. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and the itinerary was perfectly planned to really see this beautiful landscape.
It was an amazing day, from the minute we were picked up everything ran smoothly and was well organised. Our driver and tour guide Mark was incredible, he drove the whole day and managed to keep us informed and entertained with interesting stories and facts. We had plenty of stops for photos and the views were incredibly.
Only negative was the lunch, we booked lunch as we didn't know if there was any where else to buy, but therewere plenty of other options. The place we sstopped weren't interested, they ran round the big Chinese coach groups and made sure they had everything they needed and more, but we had limited choice had to queue to order it and then it was just thrown down in front of you, we had to get our own drinks even water. I would definitely say don't bother with the lunch. But otherwise a truly amazing trip which I would highly recommend.
Hi----a great trip---prebooked on line but everything was as planned. Wonderful scenery, plenty of stops and an excellent beef dinner in Apollo Bay Hotel. Jeff and Linda
Loved the Great Ocean Road Day Trip. Our guide was very informative. He made sure everyone had a picture taken of themselves at the sites which was very kind of him. He added music to his tour information which I loved. On the way home he played the movie, The Man From Snowy River, and did not talk which was nice. Most of us were tired from the trip and appreciated the quiet.
We thoroughly enjoyed this trip. Peter, our driver delivered an excellent commentary. Our first comfort stop was marred by some very slow service in the coffee/tea shop due to lack of staff. Our lunch stop at the Apollo Bay Hotel was excellent and demonstrated an excellent level of service and a very nice counter lunch. The recommended trip to the ice cream shop was also memorable in term of service and the quality of the product.. Actual sightseeing along the Great Ocean Road was high quality with good access and commentary and also clean spacious facilities.. The last part of the trip was through high quality dairy farming areas and we would have appreciated. some commentary during that part of the tour. However passengers were getting tired and sneaking a few naps along the way , so Peter probably took pity on them and let them snooze. The only disappointment was the behavior of a few foreign tourists who persisted in talking loudly during the commentary. Some sharp words from a few of us quietened them down. Also Peter had to ask one person to turn down the volume on their Ipad. They were asked to use a headphone but apparently didn't bring one. Perhaps drivers could lay down the law at the beginning of the tour and avoid embarrassment to everybody. However a great day and thank you very much. Dot and Tony Perth, WA
