Do away with the miserable cascade

The whole trip was generally enjoyable. Would recommend that the bush walk to view the underwhelming cascade to be removed to allow more time for lunch and other sightseeing places instead.

Stunning views! This was a great tour. We were able to see so many places in a short amount of time (maximizing our trip). Admittedly, it felt a bit rushed (including bathroom stops), but our driver, Sylvain was very accommodating.

It was very nice to go to all the places but the time management was off. There wasn’t much time at the main places people wanted to see and too much time at the smaller less eventful stops

Above our expectations, which were high

We chose this tour provider because of a review stating that it had more sights/stops to help break up a long but eventful day. That was great insight into the nature of the experience. I’m 100% sure we had experiences that were missed by other tour groups. Well done.

Stunning day trip
jayaarpee

It was an early pick up at 7.15 and whilst it was a 12 hour trip the time flew in. Our tour guide and driver Maj was very good giving a running commentary all about the Great Ocean Road and at all interesting places and stops. We had around 6 stops from memory from morning tea/coffee to comfort breaks and 30/45 minute stops at interesting places and for lunch. The highlight of the day was the 12 Apostles which were stunning and the pictures taken with my phone and camera will ensure this memory will last forever. If you are in Melbourne this is a must tour. We were dropped off back in Melbourne around 7.15pm in time for dinner in Chinatown.

Seeing it all in just one day!
Briana_G

This tour was a great way to experience the beautiful sights along Great Ocean Road in just one day. The group size is small enough to be able to quickly and easily get on and off the bus; making it possible to experience 8+ different stops along the journey. The town we stopped at for lunch had many different restaurant options to choose from and good shops as well to be able to pick up a souvenir. Great value overall.

A quick visit to a beautiful area

The trip was as expected. The driver was excellent and gave out information where necessary. We visited the Great Ocean Road. Viewed the sights and we’re returned back to Melbourne at around 8pm. The trip gives an insight into the area but if you want more detail then a few days would be required
icon Response from Host , Jan. 2020
Hi, and thank you for your review! We agree, the Great Ocean Road has lots to see and 2 or 3 day tours will give you more time to breath in the atmosphere and beautiful scenery. We hope to see you again!
