Traveller Tips

It’s a long day but worth it with the stunning views.
It is blustery by the coast and can be quite cool (bring layers).
The small tour size is ideal as all passengers received attention from the tour guide driver.

Jimmy Chan was a great tour guide. He was always on time and gave us the timing to be back by the bus. He also made sure we saw lots of sights and wildlife. We also were told some good information and facts.

A Day of Adventure
Allan_L, Nov 2022
Despite overcast skies, each spot that we stopped at was absolutely beautiful. A great chance for pictures or just to enjoy nature. So many beautiful and unusual formations made for a fascinating tour, and our tour guide was full of knowledge of local stories and history of each area. There wasn't time, but we could have easily stopped at a dozen more places and taken pictures, it is such a beautiful road.
Memorable Experience
Tobias_S, Nov 2022
- bus was comfortable - stops were very short - guide was friendly and experienced but maybe not enthusiastic enough
Great, full day trip
jacob_e, Nov 2022
This was a great introduction to the areas outside the big city of Melbourne. From sunrise to sunset, we stopped at as many places as we could to enjoy the views. The small group in a van was a great way to create a friendly and exciting setting. Our guide Richard was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. I did not tell anyone on the tour it was my birthday; the group and scenery made the dsy exactly how I wanted it, the tour guide Richard was the icing on the cake.
Amazing tour

A memorable trip with Dimitri
Nabil_A, Oct 2022
A memorable trip to the Great Ocean Road. Our guide Dimitri was extremely knowledgeable about pretty much everything on the way and beyond. It was a pleasure having him as our guide as we learnt so much from him. Highlight of the trip was watching koalas, kangaroos and parrots in the wild. This is a must do trip while in the Melbourne area.
