Doing this in reverse is EXACTLY the best way. We passed so many buses headed in the other direction, I can see how the other tours are probably insanely crowded. This tour was worth every penny and I cannot recommend it more! Do the trip in reverse, trust me, you will enjoy it so much more without the crowds. Also, I booked this tour literally about 9hrs before it was to depart and the company was super awesome about contacting me to let me know the rendezvous point.

Good, well equipped bus, with friendly, chatty driver/courier who clearly knew his stuff. Itinery was good, with just the right amount of time to see all that was on offer. The refreshments to be available were basic tea/coffee out of a flask, with pizza for dinner but OK. Would recommend this trip!

Totally worth going in reverse and not fighting a ton of tourists for photo opportunities. There were plenty of stops and having pizzas at sunset on Bells Beach was wonderful.

I loved everything about this day trip. The 12 Apostles, the rainforest, the coastline were all incredible. Matty L was a most entertaining driver/guide and made the day most enjoyable. It was a long day but so worth it.
