This tour was brilliant - we loved it. We were picked up promptly from our hotel by a very friendly driver, and the experience stayed at that high level all day. Our driver, Paul, was the most knowledgeable guy who made our time really interesting and relaxing. Nothing was too much trouble for him. We got great views of the Great Ocean Road and Paul stopped every time there was something good to see. I'd highly recommend this experience - if you want to see the Great Ocean Road and don't want to do the driving, this is the best way to do it.
This tour was great! Our driver Colin was friendly and informative. He brought us to a few scenic stops before heading to lunch and the 12 apostles (or I should call it 8 apostles now). Those stops were beautiful and he lent us his koala doll for photo taking. On top of the scenic stops, the tour includes two 30 min coffee breaks, one before lunch and one on the way back to town. Although I personally think the coffee breaks are not needed but it may be good for older people who wish to have some breaks from a long journey - a full day tour from 7:30am pick up time to 8:00pm hotel drop off.
Peace of mind - We joint the tour inclusive of lunch. although lunch was a bit rip off (for its portion) however it was still good, a peace of mind on finding food across the restaurants. In addition to the tour, the coach has a toilet, another peace of mind on needing to go toilet on traffic jam or on highway.
Will from AAT Kings was very nice, friendly and entertaining as well as really knowledgeable about the area, which he showed us. I felt like he really likes his job and it made me happy and in ease. All the spots were beautiful and I was very pleased with my choice of the day trip. We were even dropped off in our hotels afterwords - even me, staying in St Kilda. I certainly recommend this trip and this tour company if you decide to go for the Great Ocean Road Trip
The tour was the best part of our trip to Melbourne. I'm so glad we did it. Our tour guide was great, so friendly and knowledgeable. He made it a really enjoyable and informative experience for everyone there. The day ran smoothly with time allowances for each place we stopped. This was good as we were given enough time at each spot to see the sights and then move on so that we got the most out of our day. I would highly recommend it to everyone, even if you're only in Melbourne for a short amount of time (we only had 4 days) you should make the time to do this, it's well worth it!!
Amazing trip. Thanks our tour guide On his passion and friendly guide.
I would recommended to my friends.
Brilliant. Prepaid lunch at the appollo hotel highly recommended. Only gripe would be the morning coffee stop. The location was seedy and rundown and the offerred fare cheap and nasty.
Well worth the long coach drive - the views are spectacular - the stops were long enough to enjoy and explore
the fantastic area - the guide was very knowledgeable and explained the names and events at each stopping point.
Knowledgeable driver, spectacular scenery. A must do trip if you have one day to spare.
Great views and the driver Will was fantastic not only did he make it interesting but was also very humorous. Thought it would be a long day but the time flew by.
We thoroughly enjoyed our trip and would recommend it to other travellers. Our bus driver (whose name escapes me at present but has over 30 years experience) was fantastic and contributed considerably to the quality of our trip with his extensive knowledge and sense of humour.
amazing sights. Our tour guide was very good. Informative. The DVDs he showed were interesting. We were lucky and got to see whales! It was a great day.
Great and pleasant trip because we have a fantastic tour guide, Peter, that took the trouble to explain the history and the environment to us.
Absolutely amazing I took this excursion on July 18th! It was rather cold the day I went so bundle up! But other then that it was great! Very picturesque. You stop in a really nice little town for lunch and have the chance to browse a bit before heading back on the bus. The bus driver pulled over at different points so we could get out and take pictures at different lookout points (beyond the ones that are scheduled). We also ended up stopping after finding a koala on the side of the road in the tree so we could all take pictures. The guide was extremely informative and even had picture and flowers to provide us more insight into what he was talking about. Definitely worth every penny!
Absolutely fantastic, Richard our guide was excellent, beautiful sceneries all along
The trip was fantastic, Colin the Bus driver / tour guide was very informative and was a great host.
Definitely value for money, well worth it!!!!
Spectacular view of the great ocean road. Nice tour guiding. Had lunch at apollo hotel, nice food. Completely satisfied with the trip!
