Suhadi Sapari 2 months ago I've been on another Great Ocean Road tour before, so I'm glad this one to me is more comprehensive. There was more stops along the way. Honestly, the lunch stop was pretty quick and short to eat and browse the town but I would rather sacrifice time and to see more along the route. Adam, the tour guide was very friendly, accommodating and super knowledgeable.

We enjoyed our time with this tour as we get to explore multiple attraction sites along the Great Ocean Road within a day

We enjoyed our time with this tour as we get to explore multiple attraction sites along the Great Ocean Road within a day. Our guide is funny, friendly and allowed us to have ample time at each sites. He also pick us up at the destinated pick up point punctually. Highly recommended to visit Loch Ard Gorge, as it was less touristy and extremely beautiful.

My partner and I had the best day we could've hoped for
Svenja (Staff) 8 months ago

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

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

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
Roopa Sharma 1 year ago

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
Laura 2 years ago

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!

It was an awesome trip all the way until the very end
Jerwin Jacoba 2 years ago

It was an awesome trip all the way until the very end. Our tour guide Jon did a great job of keeping us well informed and making us laugh with his witty and fun stories. The 12 apostles was just stunning and the view was breath taking. We will highly recommend this to my family and friends. The journey was one of my bucket list and I'll definitely miss it.

Paul G was our excellent guide on this tour which our party of 4 baby boomers felt exceeded all our expectations
Robyn McCourt 2 years ago

Paul G was our excellent guide on this tour which our party of 4 baby boomers felt exceeded all our expectations. He was extremely knowledgeable and had the ability to get our diverse group of 10 people fully involved at every stage of the trip, delivering all information with humour and deep knowledge. Safety and environmental concerns were highlighted throughout our tour. Ten out of ten Go West!

We had a great tour at the GOR and this was probably the best option
Peter 2 years ago

We had a great tour at the GOR and this was probably the best option, as I am not an experienced driver to go by myself. The schedule was a bit packed and I would gladly skip the koalas and the rainforest visit for more time on the beach. At any point we have stopped by the beach, it was great view and it is definitely worth 1 day of your time, if you are doing a quick visit to Melbourne. Tourguide Collum was patient with us and kept a good mood during the day. Bus was about 22 people, which is relatively small group and easy to manage. If you are a good driver, you may just want to drive all the way on your own, if not then I definitely recommend this tour.
