Everything about this tour was fantastic. Orlando was a relaxed, happy and informative tour guide. The stops were of adequate length to really enjoy the experience and the scenery was spectacular. Words cannot describe it. The reverse itinerary worked well. Great value for money.

Our guide Orlando was a genuine kind and pleasant person to travel with. During our day he shared facts about the places we were travelling through and he had the perfect timing: we were always the first group hitting the hot spots. A full day with great stops, meals/coffee and sight seeing.

Jack was great, very knowledgeable and helpful. Tour itself was very good. We saw the main stuff nice and early before other tours arrived and before the weather went bad. Wasn't super happy with the vehicle though, very rough ride in the back! could do with new and/or better shocks. Wouldn't recommend for people with back issues or travel sickness.

Our driver Jack was lovely, very informative and helpful! The tour was great, weather was depending but can’t be helped! Lots of stops and scenic drive which was amazing and Jack provided his very own in-house entertainment to keep us occupied between stops.

Fantastic tour, Jack was our guide for the day and looked after us keeping us entertained with local history and making sure we were comfortable with plenty of rest breaks and stops to wander and explore. The Great Ocean Road has amazing scenery. Highly recommend.

The 12 Apostles were majestic and my partner and I were once again reminded of the awesome power of nature and seeing a koala lovingly hugging its tree was such a lovely experience. Our friendly Guide was a huge source of knowledge and made the trip fun and interesting the whole way through.
