I had a wonderful trip along the Great Ocean Road, enjoying hearing about the history and wildlife and looking at stunning scenery. We saw plenty of birds and koalas in the wild and there were opportunities to take photos at various stops along the way. There was enough time to explore different stops.
John, our tour guide was informative and good humoured. For me the balance of giving information and time to look and think was perfect. I liked the quirky music that linked to the section of the tour we were on- although some of the tracks were very cheesy so be warned if that's not your thing!
The lunch options included in tour were fine but not amazing and the evening stop to buy dinner at own expense had fairly limited choices. For me that was a price worth paying for the rest of the trip.
i absolutely loved this tour even as a solo traveler. Daniel, our guide, was awesome. He had great historical and informative stories to share with a touch of humor. I enjoyed having the first class seat upfront and being Daniel's 'co-pilot' for half the tour, it was an amazing view! The places we visited were amazing in their own right, but I must say that the 12 Apostles were the highlight of this tour. I am glad to have chosen this small group tour and the places of visit are well worth the long hours. I would highly recommend this tour for new visitors to Melbourne.
A long day trip that was well worth it - great commentary from a knowledgeable tour guide - Allan - made the day fun.Awesome playlist all day.The scenery was breathtaking - 12 Apostles so majestic and the Rain Forest walk was so peaceful.Would not hesitate recommending this trip to anyone.
A great tour! Informative tour guide. A long day but well worth it
The tour guide was funny, informative, and personable. I loved the music. She put extra thought into making a sound track of the trip that just added an extra element to a lovely and memorable experience. Thank you so much for making the trip wonderful.
Our Guide Mr. Dave was friendly, informative and fun to be with. The place was awe inspiring and lives up to the hype. Everything starting from pickup to drop off was perfectly timed. we never went hungry or needed emergency bathroom stops.. Money well spent.
Another fantastic tour by Go West. Having already enjoyed Phillip Island penguins I thought it was going to be hard to beat. Superb day out and would recommend to anyone. Once again our driver Travis was fantastic. Very knowledgeable and friendly.
Great views with a very happy, social tour guide. I highly recommend the helicopter ride the views are awesome!
As the only other Australian on the tour, besides the tour guide, I found everyone's reaction to my home country just really satisfying. The Great Ocean Road has been on my bucket list for a long time, so to finally tick that off almost brought tears to my eyes. The service provided by the local tour company was amazing, and Daniel, our tour guide, had such a lovely personality... I couldn't have asked for anything better. The price is literally a bargain, it's so worth it!
Good communication as soon as booked trip including letting us know of adjustment in pickup time due to hotel route extra sleep!. Stewie was a fantastically fun guide and very knowledgeable about the city as well as sites along the route to the Great Ocean Road. He kept the group engaged and excited with the history and other facts, as well as his great sense of humor. The vehicle was comfortable and even had wi-fi if you were so inclined...wouldn't suggest taking your eyes of the scenery though! All in all, a great day and I would recommend to anyone looking for a fun and easy way to see the Great Ocean Road.
The tour driver/guide was very good .. awesome experience..loved it..
This was an amazing tour! The Twelve Apostles and the Loch Ard Gorge is a must see. Dave was our driver and tour guide. He had an awesome personality and excellent knowledge of the place. Also, the hotel pick-up and drop off made things more easier for us.
Great driver! Nathan made the trip go smoothly. Was extremely kind to everyone.
It was an excellent tour. The guides were humorous and well informed. The ride was comfortable and didn't have to wait on anyone.
the driver allen he is great. love this tour and really amazing.
Amazing day, our guide Chris was really kind and the places we saw were simply unforgettable. Strongly suggested
The tour was excellent despite the windy and rainy weather. Our guide Chris was really great. Would definitely recommend it!
Had an amazing trip, our guide Alan was excellent - you could tell he loved his job and knew his stuff about the area. The trip was great value for money - most travel books recommend 1-2 weeks sightseeing the Great Ocean Road - we managed everything comfortably in 1 day!! Although we covered a lot of miles travelling, it didn't feel like it as we had plenty of stops. The longest we had to go without stopping was about 1 and half hours - however this was on the way back and most people slept!
Great tour, our tour guide Katie was outstanding. Highly recommend this small group tour because toe smaller tour bus takes you to some incredible rainforest locations that larger busses couldnt. We saw Koalas, Kangaroos and parrots in the wild along with stopping at some incredible ocean locations
We loved our tour, and our tour guide Steve was awesome! He was lively all throughout and even prepared a music playlist for maximum tour enjoyment! We had fun learning about Australia, the Great Ocean Road, the animals we encountered.
