My partner and I had the best day we could've hoped for. The entire day was amazing! Our super bubbly tour guide Kaitlyn was friendly and super fun, giving us the right amount of information without being boring or annoying. All of our stops were incredible by themselves but were building up accordingly for the finale of the 12 Apostles. We had morning tea and coffee with cake in Torquay, stopping in Apollo Bay for lunch. We had a super clear, beautiful day which made all the photo stops even more special. We had enough time at each location to take photos and still take in the views by yourself and just enjoying all the natural phenomena you get to see. It definitely is a full on day, we didn't get back until 8 PM but have enough time on the bus for naps and resting. The whole day almost felt like we went into another world, an escape from the city and was so worth it. I couldn't recommend more to everyone to take the full day to travel along the Great Ocean Road with all its amazing things to see and do! Well done Experience Oz and Go West Tours.

My mom and I booked a trip through Experience Oz for the Great Ocean Road. Aside from a great view, our guide Paul is superb! Full of energy throughout the day, his humour is fantastic and is very interactive with the guests. He made the tour even more enjoyable. Timely jokes, music and is patient with waiting.

Our tour driver Paul arrived punctually at our pick up point. The places of interest covered in this tour were indeed above our expectations especially Gibson Walk, Shipwreck, 12 Apotles were truly magnificent! Paul was friendly and able to provide good history of the various places. We enjoyed this tour and will certainly recommend it to our friends.

Booking this Great Ocean Road Day Tour through Experience Oz was extremely easy. I immediately got a confirmation mail and operators details on my email. On the day of the trip I got a call and a text from operator also. Tour bus was on time in the morning. Our tour guide Cath was an amazingly friendly, delightful, full of energy and caring person. I was travelling alone but not for a minute I felt like that. Her interesting, informative and funny commentary made everyone laugh throughout the trip. I really enjoyed every minute of the trip. I asked for Indian vegetarian food. To my surprise they served that only and it was delicious !! I'll cherish wonderful memories of the trip all my life. It was an awesome, awesome, awesome trip!!!

This tour was absolutely fantastic! Our tour guide Chris N was such a great guide. He was extremely helpful and informative. On this tour we had a great morning tea break with an incredible view of the beach & morning surfers. There are several stops on this tour and we were given a good amount of time at each stop. A must if you are visiting Melbourne!
