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.

Not good experience
Gaurav_K, June 2022
Driver/guide was of Korean origin and it was difficult to understand him at times. Instead of sharing facts about the region, he kept talking about his family etc. He tried to rush us for no reason and didn’t give adequate time to enjoy ..
Response from Host, June 2022
This review was posted to the wrong business, This person (Gaurav) never traveled with us. We never had a Korean driver, not that this would be a problem, we just don't have one. We have a team of highly experienced tour guides that regardless of their country of origin are very knowledgeable, and most importantly kind and passionate about what they do. It's a very well passed/structured/organised tour with plenty of stops, and we spend a decent amount of time in each attraction. This is shown in the thousands of five-star reviews we've received.
Awesome tour

We had a wonderful time with Matt! The trip was long as expected but we enjoyed ourselves the whole journey. I've been on the GOR before but this was the first time I got to explore as many sites, they are extremely beautiful. Matt really put a lot of effort into getting what our crew wanted i.e. koalas, kangaroos et al.
Great Ocean Road! Great Experience!
