Rudi Ann Miller 3 months ago We did the Great Ocean Road Day Tour from Melbourne. Spending the day driving 500+ kilometres sounded daunting and tedious at first but the actual journey was anything but thanks to a well-curated schedule and our amazing guide Katherine. The stops were spaced out beautifully so you didn’t spend too long cooped up in the bus. The sights were breathtaking. Our guide Katherine was witty, collegial and always cognizant of our group’s needs. There were dozens of other tour groups doing many of the same stops which could have caused frustration and confusion, but Katherine managed our group perfectly and we all had a great time and maintained our schedule without feeling rushed. She also had lots of knowledge about tour-related and general Australian facts. Great day on the Great Ocean Road!

I've been on another Great Ocean Road tour before

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
Yan Shin Lim 10 months ago

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) 1 year 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
Teresa 2 years ago

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 2 years 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!!!
