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.
Loved this tour! We were on this tour on April 26, 2016 and our guide Daryl was full of anecdotes and information. He was fantastic and kept the tour moving and prompt so we were able to see all that we had hoped to see. We were only in the area for a short time so we wanted to make sure we were able to see as much as we could - this was the perfect way to do that. The tour size was small less than 20 which was very manageable, the day was sunny which was a huge plus and the sites were gorgeous. I would highly recommend this tour!
Beautiful scenery and excellent tour guide. Had a wonderful time and would do it again.
An amazing tour well worth the time and money spent. Such beautiful spots at Gibson Steps, Loch Ard Gorge and of course, the 12 Apostles. Choosing the 'reverse' tour meant there were no crowds and more opportunity to linger and appreciate the amazing scenery at the lookout points.
A truely memorable day.
Though the weather was not friendly, but we made it into the destination place with less challenges. There were many good information and tour schedule was followed accordingly. It was a nice and exhausting experience at the same time. However, we were having a very good time together with the tour.
This trip was amazing! Dan our guide was able to give us great info and even made adjustments along the way to make our time for scenic with lunch and dinner on the beach. Beautiful tour!
Breathtaking, gorgeous and post card perfect views. Must see when visiting Victoria. Wildlife tours itinerary was great. Often a tour guide is the catalyst for an interactive group. Tara was just ok as a guide. Informative yet somewhat a preacher, her seat changing policy was unfair and unsupervised.

This reverse route is really well planned. We were always ahead of the crowd and got the best view spots. Unfortunately due to flooding at the Great Ocean Road just 3 days before our trip, some sections of the road were closed and we didn't get to see the wildlife. Despite of this, the viewing of 12 Apostles was still breathtaking.
