Traveler 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.

Excellent guide
Celesse_L, Sep 2022
We had a lovely and friendly driver, Kacy. Her driving skills were superb. She gave a descriptive and detailed account of the itinerary and history behind the attractions. The reverse itinerary was excellent.

good view and trip, nice tour guide but bad lunch
Peipei_W, Aug 2022
I came with my friend with a 11 people tour to the Great Ocean Road , the trip was good and view is amazing. The only thing not good is the lunch recommend ed by the tour guide. The vegetable I ordered was very small portion and not tasty at all, and the cake is too sweet, it is the same with my friend's lunch. I hope the tour guide can recommend some good restaurant.
Response from Host, Aug 2022
Hi Peipei, We are glad you've enjoyed the tour and the fantastic views of the Great Ocean Road. The lunch is not included in this tour and is optional. There are few (not many) restaurant options at Port Campbell like cafes and fish and chips. Cheers
Australia family trip

We enjoyed our trip to the Great Ocean Road. It was a long day but well organized. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and kept the group on time. I recommend those who are prone to motion sickness have hyoscine hydrobromide on hand as the roads are winding along the ocean.

A Fantabulous Great Ocean Road Adventure
MirlaFlor_C, Jul 2022
The whole trip was a great experience. Being in a small group was an advantage as waiting time was less and more personalised. Orlando is highly commendable.
Fantastic day to a beautiful part of Australia
Cheryl_G, Jul 2022
Our tour driver, Jimmy, was kind, informative and all round excellent guide/driver. It was a trip with beautiful views and I’m glad we did it before all the apostles disappear.
Highly recommended day trip!
Steve_L, Jul 2022

Stunning views
Angela_B, Jul 2022
Incredible experience! So many beautiful sights - one of our favorites in Australia! Friendly tour guide and nice stops along the way.
Late participants ruin the day
Marcie_L, Jul 2022
Everything is clear that we leave by 7, one group showed up late then had to go to the bathroom and so the guide let them go and the place for them to go was 10 minutes away. This made us late starting and so the tour guide said the rest of us would not get to do any extras because of them. That feels bad. I was on time and excited for the day and had heard of some of the extras. I am not sure how punishing me and not holding other participants accountable is acceptable.

Very nice guide, on time...
ShofiNurul_H, Jun 2022
Very nice guide, on time schedule, breathtaking destinations, overall a great tour. It was raining a bit so kind of freezing, but that has nothing to do with the tour provider.
So worth it !!
Reilee_S, Jun 2022
Branden was an amazing tour guide ! Very knowledgeable about everything and had some great tunes to listen too throughout the tour! We got to see kangaroos and koalas which was an extra bonus! If you’re thinking about doing this tour just do it . It’s so worth it !!
