Definitely the best way to do this journey. There were never more than 2 other buses at any location and it was still a peak travel period. Lunch was only a sm sandwich, I would recommend adding a bottle of water and maybe an apple or crisps? Everything else was great and he was quite well informed but if you are told lunch is included your expectation is a bit higher than what was basically a convenience store sandwich.
A long day but worth it. Saw so much. Rien was an awesome guide.
Because we did it reverse, we had a relaxing time heading to the first site and caught on sleep :D then when we got to the first stop it wasn't so busy... we got to take decent photos. I loved going down the beach, seeing koalas and kangaroos by Bell's beach. It was so chill and a relaxing day without seeing skyscrapers :D
Brilliant trip, would highly recommend it. It was an early start so having the longer road trip first thing in the morning was good as I had an extra couple of hours sleep before the first stop. The tour guide was great, very friendly and informative and the scenery was amazing.
The Great Ocean Road day tour really is a must when visiting the area! The reversed version was great. In a lot of places it wasn't really crowded apart from the 12 apostles. Our wonderful guide Lizzy really gave a lot of useful information, took us to the nice and calm areas. We were even the only group of tourists when we visited a rain forest and we spotted some wild koala's on our way. Big admiration for Lizzy who was so enthusiastic, had amazing stories and she was super funny. If you have her ask for the shipwreck story and stay alert on the songs she plays in the bus/coach, you will laugh your butt off! Wonderful day!
This was a good tour. Great exposure and lots of stops. A long day. So glad I didn't drive it alone. Daryl ? was a hoot.
An excellent tour and very good value for the money. Smaller group setting with the reverse tour was nice, no crowded areas as advertised. I would most certainly recommend for someone who enjoys being outside a balance of driving and walking on this tour.
Have patience in the pick-up they'll get there, and expect a fairly long day, it is.
What a great tour! Less busy because we went backwards compared to all of the other tour buses and our guide was super knowledgable.
My two girlfriends and I had a great time on this daytrip. We booked it last minute and were so happy with our decision. It was also really nice to be able to get out to the 12 apostles before the crowds so we had more opportunities for pictures with less people in the background. Our small group size made it easy to be flexible with our plan also and our driver, John, snuck in some extra surprises like Kangaroos on the golf course. We even got to see some Koalas in the wild which was a huge plus! I'd highly recommend this trip to anyone wanting to do the great ocean road.
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.
Amazing way to avoid the crowds to see the Great Ocean Road and the 12 apostles. Our guide was great, entertaining and full of knowledge! It was great seeing koalas in the wild too.
I have really enjoyed this trip with a very nice and funny tour guide.
I had a very memorable and enjoyable trip to Great Ocean Road. Tara is very energetic and fun! Thanks for making this tour flawless.
Phil was the best. Very entertaining, even though it rained.

Such a great day, so much to see and our guide Matty was extremely knowledgeable of the area. We also missed the crowds. Highly recommend this tour.
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.
Excellent tour. The reverse great ocean road tour is extremely beautiful and breath taking.
Fabulous day out. Small group added to the enjoyment and personalised the trip. Mark our tour guide was lovely - very informative and chatty. Views were stunning - plenty of photo opportunities. Well worth doing this reverse tour as number of tourists were fewer and the lighting was spectacular. Shared pizzas at the end of the day was a great idea and sealed the bonds of newly formed friendships.
Had an awesome patient driver who obviously knows and loves all the sights leading up and along the Great Ocean Road. Kudos to Daryl! He made this long day fun and an experience to treasure.
Enjoyed the reverse tour.it rained early so we were happy we were st the twelve apostles when it was not raining yet.our guide was excellent too!!!would surely recommend this tour!!!
This is a great ocean drive and it was nice to do it in reverse as we were not too crowded. The apostles were great to see again but there is one less than 12 years ago. You can not go to Melbourne and not do this trip. The scenery is amazing.
