Absolutely worth the 11 hours. The sceneries are spectacular. Tour guide Fred is very nice and accommodating. I got cancelled by another tour company because I was a solo traveler. Fred told me that his company never cancels on anyone.
Fantastic Tour of GOR!

Most Memorable Trip
Tousif_J, Jan 2022
It was a great experience to have a wonderful Great Ocean road trip with the group and tour guide Fred. Fred is one of the most humble, excellent and good individuals. I can visualise the entire plot when he explained to us about loch ard George stories and great ocean road other stories. It was really great experience to be with a wonderful group and Fred. My wife really made the right call by asking me to confirm this ticket via Viator.
Amazing day trip!

This tour was great! Shane our guide and driver was a fantastic, funny and knowledgable person who made the day even more enjoyable. We stopped off at well known hotspots along the Great Ocean Road, as well as a few hidden gems for great views and to see some illusive Aussie wildlife.

Great experience
Leena_D, Aug 2019
This small group tour is a complete coverup if of great ocean road,Apollo bay ,bird sanctuary and a few photo points. Would have been more exciting if we could just wet our feet in the southern ocean and also the 12 apostles beach front . Our guide frank was a excellent coach and kept us engaged throughout the way

Isabelle M, Sep 2016
Had an unexpected private tour to the Great Ocean Road as the other guests could not make it due to the weather conditions. Liam from Oceania Tours and Safari is a great guide, very knowledgeable. He had to switch the program as part of the Great Ocean Road was closed due to floodings, nevertheless showed me this beautiful ocean and I was able to see the famous 12 apostles. We looked for koalas and kangoroos. I really enjoyed the day and would highly recommend them for this tour. Thanks Liam!

Mariangela_M, Jan 2017
O passeio é maravilhoso. Os lugar onde estão os doze apóstolos é de tirar o fôlego. O que não gostei foi que foi tudo muito rápido e corrido, o almoço e as paradas todas. Sugiro começar um pouco mais cedo e ficar mais tempo em cada lugar. É muito tempo de viagem para chegar lá e ficar tão pouco.
Es war ein sehr gelungener...
