          Bonza trip!
          We had a great day out from start to finish thanks to bubbly Lucy our tour guide. We got to see and interact with native animals, get our toes in the sand at a beautiful beach and of course, see the Penguin Parade! Spectacular day out. Many thanks to Lucy for the knowledge and advice.

          Great day out!
          A great day with driver/guide Aaron. Two wine tastings, a cheese tasting, a gin tasting that expectedly included a couple of whiskies, lunch and a chocolate place. Very efficiently delivered. A most enjoyable day appreciated by all of our group.

          The enjoyable wines tasting tour.
          Red our guide-driver is very friendly. He takes care everything well throughout the trip including creating a very funny atmosphere to make the group enjoy the tour. Foods are good, wines are excellent. If they showed a little bit of the brewery, it would be a very good experience. It's a shame we didn't see it.

          Nice tour
          Felix was a wonderful guide, full of great information and insights. He handled the cast of characters well. Tour was long, but was broken up well. Nice selection of things to see. Good pace. They stop for both lunch and dinner, cost of meals separate. Felix had a strange, very eclectic Playlist for the ride home.

          Had an unforgettable fun day
          The trip was absolutely amazing. Our driver/guide Bluey surely did a great job. Besides introducing every sightseeing spots, he also made the trip so much fun. The trip was also easy with small kid. I had a 2 years old boy, and they provided a separate seat with car seat installed. The overall schedule is okay, not too packed. We even bought a pet koala session in the zoo! And the little penguins are definitely worth the waiting! It would be late when comes back to Melbourne but they have pick-up/drop-off which made it much easier.

          Amazing place
          I absolutely recommend this tour, our guide Camille was fantastic, knowledgeable, fun, smart, the whole package, she was driving all day so confident and made us feel safe, she knows and love what she is doing, the beauties that we were able to enjoy are unique in this world, I don't think that was missing a minimum detail, since the morning tea (with her own baked bread, lol) to all the strategic stops on the way and return, really one wonderful full day in this wonderful city.

          Absolutely mind blowing !! We did this tour with Jacqui, who is amazing: fun, energetic, friendly, smart, witty… She taught us all to sing Home Among the Gum Trees. Go West and Jacqui put on an amazing tour of the Great Ocean Road!

          Best trip ever.
          Best trip ever! We were a whole group from Monash uni and Bluey was the best tourguide we could have asked for. Even though the weather wasn’t perfect the trip was. Brighton beach was beautiful, getting to know the history was pretty interesting. Moonlit sanctuary was great, you could see and interact with so many animals and learn a bit about the work there. The part to me was Phillip Island though, the landscape is great we got so see lots of penguins also thanks to Blueys tipps. You’ll learn a ton of stuff about Melbourne, Phillip Island and Australia in general. The mood throughout the whole trip was exceptional also thanks to Bluey and to us! All in all would definitely recommend!!

          Great Experience!
          This tour was Fun! Our Guide Jon C. Was funny,Informative, and Nice. It was a long day but we covered a lot of ground. I was a little disappointed by the Penguin Parade because it is incredibly hyped up and well it doesn’t quite live up to its lofty expectstions but the show was still interesting. I still had a good time.

        My daughter and I took this tour, leaving Melbourne approximately 11 am. We had a wonderful day. It is a long trip but our Tour guide Paul made frequent stops and kept us entertained with historical information, amusing stories and his engaging personality. We arrived at the 12 Apostles around 8:30 pm and had about an hour to enjoy the sunset and changing hues. It really was magnificent at this time of day. We Thoroughly recommend this tour.

        Okay I've traveled quite a lot and used several different touring companies just in the past 5 years.
        I've seen the Mayan temples of Mexico 'chichen itza tour', 'the grand canyon adventure' via Las Vegas Trips , the Statue of Liberty/Manhattan, New York double decker bus sight seeing package, the Hong Kong Street and ferry tour, the South Korea/Nami Island ferry and bus tour and the list goes on and on.
        But I can honestly admit that I have never been so impressed with the experience I had with Go West Tours Ocean Road Sunset escapade of serene Southern Australia!
        KATHERINE led us on our journey of the gorgeous coastal region of Australia starting from Melbourne and stopping at several beautiful locations along the coast.
        We took a turn inland to enjoy the lush greenery of forest in the Land Down Under.
        I captured so many fantastic pictures and created wonderful memories along the way.
        I had the best holiday ever thanks to Katherine and Go West Tours! Thank you!

        Yesterday I was at the tour to the 1w Apostels. We got to see it at sunset and it was great. Our guide Adrien was the nicest guy ever and it was a really fun experience with him. He told stories about the sceneries and you will never guess his home town. I can highly recommend going there since it's a absolutely beautiful place and especially with Adrien its get a real good adventure.

        Full on day - lots to see with a lot of driving and short stops but if time is short then this is the best tour to do. Went through coastal towns with stop at Lorne for lunch, photographed koalas & birds, sunset at 12 Apostles was magnificent. Ricky was the best guide/driver - managed to keep a very diverse group happy all day. Would definitely recommend.

        This is an excellent tour that includes a stop to see koalas in the wild as well as a walk through breathtaking temperate rainforest, in addition to the 12 Apostles and other amazing coastal features within close proximity of the apostles. Margaret was a memorable tour guide who exhibited, infectious enthusiasm for her country and the stunning scenery that can be witnessed along the Great Ocean Road. It's one thing to have a great itinerary, but when that is coupled with a high caliber guide like Margaret, it just makes for a very rewarding overall experience and one I will be sure to remember and recommend in the future.

        We took a Sunset Tour on March 1, 2020 with Mike C. The trip was fantastic and we both enjoyed it very much. Mike was fun and full of relevant and interesting information. The 12 Apostles and Loch Ard gorge were beautiful even though the weather was cloudy with misting rain. We highly recommend Mike C. and the tour. David and Cecelia

        This is a long, full day with many stops for stretching your leg (which you are grateful for). Beautiful scenery. We were able to find 3 wild koalas at Kennett River. The tour guide, Chris, was a wealth of information.

        Definitely worth doing this trip. Bring layers as you will likely go from warm to chilly evening breeze (wind!) blowing in off the ocean. The sun set below a band of cloud and even without those reds, the trip is worth it.

        What an unforgettable day trip! Our guide and driver Tom did an excellent job. He was informative, entertaining, unfazed by any unexpected circumstances and took good care of the group tirelessly throughout the trip. Sunset view of the 12 Apostles was amazing so this well-planned tour is worth staying up for even if your return after midnight in summer.

        Full day tour along the GOR, beautiful sights and wildlife spotting (got to see several koalas). Daniel T was a very entertaining and interactive guide, made sure everyone was always comfortable. We did experience cold weather so had to buy sweaters on the way, so be sure to bring warm clothing on the side even if it’s hot in Melbourne.

        I had the most amazing time on this tour. From the beginning Red our tour guide was so welcoming and funny, even played Taylor Swift for us when were quested it! He was also very knowledgeable about the Great Ocean road. We saw some beautiful beaches and scenery, and seeing the sun set over the 12 Apostles was spectacular. Red also told us that after the sun sets we would see a Tiny Blue penguin march, which we did! 11/10 best day ever
