More than we could have expected
Sep. 2019 • Friends
This was unbelievable. The views along the Great Ocean Road are breathtaking. Walter was lovely and went out of his way to make our day more than we could have ever imagined. We saw parrots, koalas and TONS of kangaroo. I could not have asked for more. Highly recommended.

Fantastic Experience on 1-Day Great Ocean Road
Aug. 2019 • Solo
I normally don't do group tours (I shudder when those groups of 50 following the aloft umbrella stream past) and this one-day tour was EXACTLY the opposite of that. I was very pleased!!!

The tour is in a van that seats 11, small and tidily whizzing across country roads. It's very comfortable and you're able to leave you bag behind so you can climb those hills unencumbered!

The route follows the reverse of most tour companies, zipping across inland roads and getting to the big coastal sights quite early. It leaves at an unholy pre dawn hour (before 6am!) but the trade off is NO CROWDS at the the most touristy sites. Amazing! Fully worth it!

Besides the Twelve Apostles and other coastal lookouts, there is also a lovely rainforest hike (moderate), and then a couple detours to seek out koalas and kangaroos near the main road. We found both! It was a fantastic and exciting experience.

Our guide, Walt, was friendly, knowledgable, and very good natured. He's got great trivia and answered every question we threw his way. What I liked best is how mellow it was. In a small van in close quarters, operating pretty early, we zoned for most of the driving time. Walt always gave very clear expectations for each locations which was very useful. Overall, each stop was planned and executed in a well thought out way. The group I was in turned out great. I was a solo traveler and always felt safe and well looked after.

I would definitely come back and do this again with my mom and dad!

Amazing time!
May 2019 • Family
Had a great time with my dad on this tour! Driver was very nice and informative. The tour did not disappoint as we were able to see and do what we wanted to do and so much more! The head start was a good idea because we were able to avoid most of the tourist crowd. Definitely worth it and will recommend to friends and family!

Walter is an excellent guide. Professional and knowledgable. Had a terrific day viewing sights along the ocean road and seeing koalas, kangaroos and parrots. Great idea to leave early to stay ahead of crowds. Our best tour in Australia!

Oct. 2017 • Couples
Walter was a great guide and organised an excellent tour. We have been on the great ocean road a few times but enjoyed this one the most. For example the fact that leaving early in the morning ensured we were not waiting in queues and had time to enjoy the sites. We also visited other places like the rain forest and area to view koalas in their natural habitat and feed native parrots.
The only negative were the seats which were a bit narrow and uncomfortable for the long day.
