We originally signed up for half day but realized we wouldn't see as much of the coast. Our guide, Julie, was so accommoadating. We told her we could add about 2 hours to our trip and she adjusted to add more scenic stops. We paid a little extra but it was worth it. In addition to the coast, we also traveled inlnad part of the way and saw sheep and cattle grazing and some amazing scenery. We had an additional stop for coffee and later stopped to pick up lunch to eat on the way. We also stopped at a park to see beautiful parrots and even a koala!
The Twelve Postles and the surrounding rocks eroded by the ocean were an awesome sight. Julies was a great guide. We recommend this trip highly!

We booked this tour to fill up a day prior to starting an organized tour of Australia and New Zealand. Having only arrived 2 days prior from the U. S., I didn't think we could manage the 12 hour trip on the Great Ocean Road, so booked this 'express' tour. Our guide, Francois, was waiting for us in the hotel lobby at 7:30 am. He made sure we were wrapped up warmly before taking us to his car. As we left Melbourne, Francois discussed some of the sights we were passing on the way. He let us know the format for the day: about a three hour drive with a potty stop halfway out. When we stopped for a break, the public restroom was clean, and across the street from a small cafe where we could buy our lunch for later, and grab a cup of coffee. Francois provided bottled water. Once we arrived at the park, we made 3 stops in all to appreciate the views and take photos. This also included a stop at the visitors' center for a quick potty stop. Although the weather was cold and windy on the day we visited, it was absolutely worth the time and cost to travel here. The views were dramatic, with a high contrast among the rocks, the ocean, and the sky. Besides being able to see the 12 Apostles there aren't really 12, BTW, we also walked down to the beach which gave us a different perspective and filled our shoes up with sand too. Francois was an excellent guide, and he shared his knowledge of and experiences in Australia. We very much enjoyed talking with him to fill the time on the way, although he also let us have quiet time which was very much appreciated.

We found the half day to be perfect with a great guide, Francois, with great stories on a great day in a beautiful country.
