12 Apostles
, Jul 2021
No crowds as it was in the reserve direction. But seeing the 12 Apostles was the highlight. Loved it. Plus small numbers
, May 2021
Best experience I’ve had. The guide Matt was awesome. Vehicle in very good condition. we’ve stopped in many different spots.
An action packed day w gorgeous scenery
, May 2021
A fantastic day led by Gui. This action filled tour takes you to all the major sites first so you go straight to the 12 Apostles before the other big tourist buses do and have the place to yourself! We visited the Apostles, Loch ard gorge, Tom & Eva, razorback and London Bridge before lunchtime and while the sun was beautiful and warm and the sky bright blue. If u want to take pix along the surf coast I suggest sitting on the right side of the bus (driver side). We even saw a few koalas at Kennett River!! Make sure you check the weather b4 u book!
Great experience

The 12 apostles and Loch Ard Gorge as well as the chocolate factory at the end of the tour that was an extra to the main tour.

Great ocean drive with Ben
, May 2021
Ben, our tour guide, is great and funny. He is very knowledgeable and kept us entertained throughout the day. It is a long drive, and for just a fraction of a price, these guys are doing an awesome job. Would highly recommend. PS- practice your singing skills!!
The Perfect Day Trip
, May 2021
This is the perfect way to see the highlights of the Great Ocean Road in one day; I was worried that it would feel rushed but it definitely didn’t and I feel like I saw everything I would want to along the route. The day didn’t even feel too long as the stops are broken up nicely and you’re given a good amount of time at each place to stretch your legs and do some exploring. The guides Ben and Jack are great, very friendly and informative without having to fill every bit of silence so you had time to relax and nap in the bus. I’m a solo traveller so having the small group was nice as you got to know people but also didn’t have to stay with the group the whole time. Will definitely be recommending the tour to everyone visiting Melbourne
Hardly recommend
, Apr 2021

A time to paradise
, Apr 2021
Jack is a good tourist guide and his service is very good. That’s a amazing trip to Great Ocean Road.
Value for money
, Apr 2021
Our tour guide Jack was good. He covered all the places as it's been promised. We went on a windy day and overall it's a worth trip for $99.
An easy, stressfree and great experience.
, Apr 2021
Mat was a great guide and went beyond my expectations in terms of caring for the visitors on his group. Small group tour was definitely a plus.
