I had a brilliant day. Stunning scenery, great company, fun packed day. Driver was very personable, had good knowledge and made it a memerable day.
We were concerned about this being a long day, which it was but all enjoyable and so pleased we did it. Nikki and Peta, were tremendous! Funny and informative. To see Koala in the wild and see such great coastline and countryside on the way back is a privledge and one to keep fond memories of! Thank you! Ali and Pete
Our tour guide was really good. Good knowledge of the area we were visiting. Very helpful when asked questions. Took some lovely pictures of us throw out our trip for us to treasure of our day. Would do trip again.
Throughly enjoyed our trip from start to end. our tour guide was steve.. he was very cooperative and friendly.. it rained a bit and was cloudy in morning, but as the day progressed day turned sunny and beautiful. We included 10 mins flight with it, it reduced our time at 12 apostles but flight was awesome, worth every penny.. minivan was comfortable for ladies as they have small frame but it would be uncomfortable for big guys... steve was great, he kept us entertained till end.. he was sweet and funny.. we informed during booking to include vegetarian lunch, and the back office staff forgot to communicate with him.. we ordered vegetarian burger and received it. While having a general chat with him, we mentioned about our specific requirements as soon as we discussed this thing with steve, changed our vegetarian burgers with vegetarian sandwiches as according to him, vegetarian burgers contained egg. This was very sweet gesture. Also he offered us some bananas.. also there was some single ladies and families, he took care of everyone... this tour is highly recommended.. best tour guide...
Thoroughly enjoyed this smaller group trip, our tour guide was very knowledgable and enthusiastic. Loved the helicopter flight over the 12 apostles, well worth paying a little extra for.
Our driver was Lizzie, she was really nice, funny and made the long bus journey very enjoyable. She gave us plenty of information about the places visited and played so much fun music.
It was quite coldish in the morning but thanks to the sunshine, it warmed up quickly. We stopped at a few beaches, a lovely rain forest, the 12 Apostles no access to Gibson Steps and at the beautiful Ard Gorge, which was our favourite.
On the way to Ocean Road we stopped for cakes and coffee loved the cakes, then saw a few koalas and birds in front of the restaurant where we stopped for lunch. Being vegetarians we were a bit afraid there wouldn't be any options for us, but there were at least 5 veggie options, and it was really tasty too.
For dinner we stopped at a fast food cluster McDonalds, Subway etc. Not a fan of these, but can survive once in a while.
We asked her to drop us off somewhere else than the agreed place, and it was cool.
Very satisfied with the trip and surely Lizzie made it very enjoyable!
Great tour with an awesome tour guide. He was extremely informative and very approachable. The day went smoothly and saw so many incredible things without feeling rushed at sites.
Highly recommend this small bus tour along Great Ocean Road. Saw so many sites and Stuart our knowledgeable and witty tour guide truly added to the experience. He shared stories we would not know traveling independently and kept us entertained during the long, but scenic, day. Well worth the time and cost!
The views were AMAZING! Definitely do the helicopter ride. It was amazing and I want to do it all again!
Our guide Peter was fantastic. He was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic, as well as entertaining. His guided walks were most educational. We had frequent breaks and stops which made the bus ride tolerable. For everyone visiting Melbourne, this tour is a MUST. We definitely rate it a 5 stars plus. A wonderful experience and one of the highlights of our Australia adventure!
The Tour of the Great Ocean road was The Best!!!!
Every detail : the History and culture that the Tour guide offered , the atmosphere, the scenery along the road, the stops at reasonable intervals, All combined to make this experience an extra Excellent one
I speak for myself but am pretty sure that the 22 passengers were as happy as i have been.
My only regret was that it could nkt go for longer: i would have happily gone on to Adelaide....
I highly recommend this trip . From the moment I got on the bus to late at night arriving back in the City, I had a blast ! Lizzie was a great guide : The Eco-Tour was more than expected . I really enjoyed the intimate bus ride versus the larger transporters .
Excellent, Lizzy was a great and very entertaining tour guide. Highly recommend it.
The trip was made all the better by our tour guide Nicky - she was absolutely passionate in what she does and her enthusiasm is infectious. She is also very friendly and helpful!
It was a full 12 hour tour and the scenarios were amazing. We were pleasantly surprised with the short rainforest walk. Our driver / tour guide didn and #39;t say a lot but we appreciate his professional and safety goes first attitude, as well as his advice on locations for the best lookouts
It was great! Our tourguide Nicky was so funny and told us lots of interesting things! The helicopter flight was amazing! Thank you for this experience!
Excellent option to see a bit more of the country side if you visit Melbourne and have limited time.
Highly recommendeda very long day,our driver/guide was exceptional.
Although it was a cold windy day, our bus driver and tour host Lizzie , made it a wonderful day. Such great knowledge of all the places we visited and so accommodating of all our needs. A day never to forget, thank you
A fantastic tour with a great guide and all the people of Go West were just amazing! Highly recommendable, top organized and so many things to see. Wonderful first impression for me of Australia!
Great trip, amazing landscapes! Lisie was very friendly, helpful and so much fun!
She was not only our driver and tour guide, but also our photographer and co-traveler, she was getting excited as we did! I recommended this trip to my colleagues as well.
This was awesome. Nathan is a great, funny and good storyteller. Had a great day with lots of stops and saw the koalas, kaketoes, 12 apostles had the helicopter flight which was short but awesome as well, the rain forest,... but no kangoeroes such a pity Nathan
