We was great education by Raphael who we found very laid back and friendly, after picking up the rest of the guest we set off through Melbourne and Raphael gave us the history of the city. Our first stop was Torquay where we had a welcoming cup of coffee and cake. We then set off towards Lorne beach and the ocean road arch for some photos.
We drove some more and saw the very house in the opening scene from mad max .the next stop was Kennet were we saw koalas, kookaburras and cockatoos. We stopped for lunch at apollo beach where the weather started to warm up.
We reached the 12 apostles after a brief rainforest stop. The views was magnificent and you also get a reverse view opportunity. I would recommend this tour although really long Raphael was a great guide and integrated all the guests.
This was a fabulous and beautiful tour. Our guide was so friendly and knowledgeable. I felt we had ample time at each photo spot, which is not always the case in bigger groups. Although part of the road was closed, our guide handled the change well and I felt like I didn't really miss out on anything. I highly recommend this tour and anything run by Go West tour company.
Great tour -- got to see so much. Our guide was Phil and he was fantastic. Very knowledgeable, outgoing and accommodating. He made sure everyone was comfortable, enjoying themselves and had lots of information. It was a super fun day with amazing sights.
It was fun, along with an awesome tour guide, making the trip most memorable. Love the planning and points of sightseeing. Well organized and no rush. Feel my money well spent.
Great tour day with our guide Chris. Very scenic tour and he kept it interesting and enjoyable since this is a long day.
Great tour!! Even on a rainy day according to our guide one of the wettest of the year it was worth it.
Very enjoyable with informative, knowledgable and pleasant guide. Thanks Cath!!!
it was an awesome experience...beautiful natural sceneries. Twelve Apostles and the Gibson Steps followed by the Loch Ard Gorge were just amazing. Our tour guide Leo was very patient and really looked after everyone of us.
Lots of breathtaking scenery culminating in the 12 Apostles. Plenty of opportunities to take photos. Phil was our knowledgeable and entertaining guide. There is a good menu selection for lunch and the food was good. It is a very long day so delighted that we were picked up and dropped off outside our hotel. Very efficient pre-tour organisation and communication by the company. An excellent trip.
Loved the Eco-Tour on the GOR. Our driver/guide Phil was great - very knowledgeable, helpful, and had a great selection of songs that he played along the way. Even though a portion of the GOR was blocked off because of landslips from the recent rains, he adapted the tour to the changed route and he was able to find some koalas and kangaroos along the way - a real highlight. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone.
This is the best tour I have ever had! It's really a nice getaway and Go West Tours did a great job! Kath, the tour guide, was friendly, organized and caring. Everyone in the tour loved her! We saw 7 koalas, 2 kangaroos, many birds, great ocean scenes, interesting homes and of course the 12 Apostles. Not all tours are the same unfortunately. My coworker actually signed up with some tour company from Chinatown to see the Great Ocean Road on the same day. She started her tour 2 hours later and couldn't see any koalas, kangaroos or Apostles because it was too dark and rainy. She came back to our hotel an hour later completely exhausted and disappointed.
The views will certainly stay with you forever! Phil did a very nice job guiding us along this tour.
This was hands-down one of the BEST days of my life! I can't say enough about how amazing this tour was! Our guide, Steve, was so awesome! He was very personable, charismatic, and knowledgeable and had such entertaining commentary and music throughout the tour. We couldn't stop smiling! Each stop was breathtaking despite some less-than-ideal weather and memorable, from holding and feeding wild birds and seeing a wild sleeping koala, to hiking through the rainforest, to visiting famous surfing and shipwreck beaches, to soaring over the 12 Apostles in a helicopter it is 100 worth the extra cost!!! Trust me, you won't regret it!!!. This tour was a once-in-a-lifetime experience that I would do again in a heartbeat, especially if Steve were the guide! As a side note, we took along our 21-month-old toddler yes, it IS doable! who also had a blast and loved every minute of it, including the helicopter ride! This was one of the most memorable experiences my family had during our time in Australia and we absolutely loved it and would highly recommend it to anyone. Now go book this tour! :D
Strongly recommend this tour! Our guide Phil was amazing too!
That tour was really great and Dave, our guide, was fantastic !
Our tour guide, Daniel is awesome! He is knowledgeable and funny, and make the tour really fun. Thanks Daniel!
Excellent tour. Several stops help break down the long drive and they are all very scenic. Most important: the tour guide, Paul originally from New Zealand was really great: extremely knowledgeable, witty, enthusiastic. I also took the helicopter ride and I highly recommend it.
The tour is well planned and covers quite a range of beautiful sites. Our tour guide Leo was always friendly, keen to help us take pictures and happy to answer any extra questions. Although the drive through the coast is long, the programme makes it easier to go by. Free WiFii on the bus is extremely convenient. I will happily recommend this to anyone.
Callum was awesome! He gets a 5. It was all good - beautiful and diverse landscape with an attentive and thoughtful guide.
Phil was a very knowledgeable and entertaining guide. Definitely the best way to see all of these sights with little knowledge about the area. Unforgettable views
Very well narrated and overall, a very good experience. My only reservation was that the driving distances a 70-100 KM/Hour were too short.
550 km along the coast west of Melbourne. Beautiful country. Damon was a great guide. Very reminiscent of the portion of the Pacific Coast Highway that goes through Central California.
Apart from the provided lunch which is thai i feel its better if its fish n chips. Other than that, great ocean road was amazing!
