    Comprehensive Private Tour
    The Great Ocean Road is really a must visit. We almost dropped it off our list as one of our group wanted to visit a wildlife park instead. But so glad to choose to take a tour down here. The wildlife is great here as well and feels more natural. Our guide James managed to find a koala in the wild. Now that was an experience, which apparently might not be possible in decades to come due to their dwindling numbers. So sad :(

    Great Ocean Road Tour
    Went on the Great Ocean Road Tour today with our guide, Mark. It was an early morning 1 day trip and well worth it. Mark was very knowledgeable and friendly. We really appreciated the history of each location we visited. He was also very precise and detailed about each stop. We appreciated the coffee/tea and snack provided too! We highly recommend, as the coastline is spectacular!

    Wife and I, 70+ years old, are frequent international travelers and often hire private tour guides. Some work well, some less so. Always looking to research best options. My advice in visiting Great Ocean Rd from Melbourne: your search is over…call/write James. You can see from other reviews all his attributes. What I can add is that our experiences was that even when he can’t give the tour himself he chooses another good guide… and then he, James , worries throughout the tour that all is good even when he’s supposed to be on vacation. In our case, Max filled in for James and was a courteous, attentive, informative, interesting, pleasant driver and guide for our 2-day tour. Together, James and Max teamed up to take care of a last minute hitch that was weather-related… seamlessly. Also, if you can afford the time, I highly recommend the 2-day option to better enjoy, at a more relaxed pace, the beauty and culture of the local stops.

    Looking for a fantastic tour, choose Great Ocean Road Tours. We saw wildlife in abundance & incredible natural beauty.
    My husband & I took the private Great Ocean Road tour with James, it was everything we wanted and more. James was thoroughly knowledgeable, very personable and professional. Being a private tour he gave us options & asked what we were most interested in. I would use the tour company again in a heartbeat.

    Wonderful 2 day tour on the great ocean road
    We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 day tour on the great Ocean Road! James is the perfect guide. Having driven on this route so frequently, he was able to provide little nuggets of information throughout the trip. The stops were so well planned, we did not feel rushed and this is how trip should be like. The vehicle is also clean and new. Highly recommended to anyone who would like to take a tour on the Great Ocean Road.

    a very fun and relaxing experience!
    We did the two day private great ocean road tour with James and it was an absolutely fantastic experience. James was very welcoming, friendly and professional throughout the whole tour, and we felt extremely at ease in his capable hands. We highly recommend this tour if you are looking for a fun and relaxing journey through the great ocean road!

    Bucket List - tick tick tick
    Really top notch tour with Stuart. Initial (detailed) discussion with James as we were quite particular about what we wanted to see. Everything was ticked off our list, plus some places we weren't expecting but equally as beautiful. Magic tour. Perfect for a couple. Must do.

    What a great experience this was. We saw tonnes of wildlife, views were superb. Our guide Stuart was fantastic with our group (different ages) and it was a pleasure to be in his company over the 2 days. We really liked the choice of overnight venue, being Apollo Bay.

    Highly Recommended
    We did this as a shore excursion from Melbourne. We had a full day available as we were trasniting via the spirit of tasmania, so we were able to squeeze in a 12 hour tour. This allowed us to cover much more in one day than if we were to have hired a car from the port and self-driven ourselves. Plus it took a lot of stress out of the day.

    Great Private Tour
    The Great Ocean Road has been on our bucket list. And after having had our holiday to Australia postponed 5 times and delayed by almost 2 years, we thought, as it was our last place to visit on our 3 week holiday, that we would go all out and book a private tour! It really was truly memorable. The cost for my husband and I wasn't over-excessive (around $800 Australian) and we were delivered an A1 tour. James, who was our driver as well as our guide has lived on the road for a long time, so he knew the history and some of the interesting local stuff. The stress of hiring a car and having to do all that driving in one day - no way hooseeee! Do yourself a favour and do it in style - you won't regret it.

    Sunset tour with GoWest
    Wonderful experience. The sunset view is phenomenal. One can imagine the crowd pre-pandemic. Try go down to the little cove with the sandy beach. It’s another different experience. The guide is super friendly and informative.

    Thanks Stuart!
    We have just finished a great couple of days in the company of Stuart, who took us on a incredible journey over the 2 days. Never a dull moment. Scenery out of this world. We found stacks of wildlife. Meals were not included but he recommended some absolute gems along the way. And not the kind of ones we would have chosen - more hidden away ones - like a local seafood cafe hidden away down by the harbour front away from the masses of tourists. We would never have found it ourselves. The highlight on day 1 was the kangaroo tour. The highlight of day 2 was the rainforest walk. In fact, we liked the first walk so much, he found the extra time to take us to a second rainforest. Almost equally as impressive. Great service. Great tour. Big thumbs up.

    Wish we had more time
    Wow. What a road. I had done a small bit of research before I choose to visit this area, I knew the 12 apostles was a must visit, but I wasn’t quite expecting all the bits inbetween. Our guide Michael was just the sweetest man and really looked after my mum (77) and the rest of our group. Always asking if we had everything we needed, well planned toilet stops, thoughtful little touches throughout the day. I think like most people though, we do wish we had spent longer and opted for a 2 day tour. Time and budget unfortunately did not allow for it. But, we will be back! Hopefully we can pick up from Michael where we left off.

    Overnight trip.
    My family took a overnight tour along the great ocean road. It was an unforgettable time along the coast helped somewhat by crystal clear blue skies. We particularly liked the 2 rainforests we visited. Absolutely beautiful.

My family had the pleasure of joining James on a private 3 day Great Ocean Road tour in April 2021. James was easy to communicate with before the trip (I had a million questions) and made great recommendations for places to stay. He picked us up at our hotel in Melbourne, the car was spotless with plenty of space for my family of 4, and off we went. For three days James took us along the beautiful Great Ocean Road. This was the best way to travel! My partner got to enjoy the views instead of having to focus on driving. James knew all the good places to stop for hikes as well as the best sightseeing spots and even arranged our helicopter tour bookings at the 12 Apostles. He was also full of information about the area, which we wouldn’t have gotten had we driven the road without a guide. My 11 & 13 year olds were less than thrilled to learn our holiday plan was to drive along a road and look at things but between the helicopter ride, kangaroo tour and treetop adventure they had plenty of fun! One of the best parts of this tour was that after we made the decision to book, I didn’t really have to make any other decisions the entire trip…we just followed the itinerary James had mapped out for us! If you are considering seeing the Great Ocean Road, I highly recommend James and Great Ocean Road Tours!

We were fortunate to have 3 days to see this fabulous road. Most, it would appear rush down in one day. I just don’t get the point in doing that. Even our 3 days, were packed full of sightseeing. Up early visiting places and often not back until the late afternoon. The tour was Well organised, had good variety of things to see/do and was well tailored to our interests and fitness level. James our guide and driver for the 3 days was a local, which really took the experience to the next level.

Well after 25 years of putting up with me, I suppose I had to reward my wife somehow. So rather than buying the usual piece of overpriced designer rubbish, I thought I would treat her to an experience. And what an experience it was! James initially guided me through the booking process. He didn’t push me into the 3 day tour. In fact he initially recommend the 2 day tour, but given we are slightly older, we wanted to take it a bit slower, plus we had a whole week in Melbourne, so we decided upon the 3 day tour.

James’ flexibility and excellent driving skills, ensured we avoided the crowds at most stops. It appears that most people visit the road in one day and congregate in certain areas at certain times of the day. So we avoided that heavy flow, which meant when we arrived at certain attractions, we were the only tourists there, which made some spots very tranquil, which is how they should be seen in the first place.

A lovely tour and thankfully my wife was both surprised and very happy with her anniversary gift experience.

Sadly though, she might think this is how every anniversary will be each year from now on. I guess I’ll have to put my thinking cap on for that.

As a couple there were so many positives, the driver,accommodation,sights,meals, and the company of fellow passengers, there is no way to put a dollar value on that.

My friend and I booked a custom 3-day tour that allowed us to experience the Great Ocean Road and Grampians National Park. Our guide James made sure we got to see all the highlights. He was extremely knowledgeable and we learned a lot about the beautiful scenery and trails as well as life in Australia in general. We appreciated the care James took to set expectations when recommending lodging and places for meals which were always excellent. I got to experience many things during my time in Australia but the tour with James was the high point for me. Would highly recommend this company.

H Erica, Thank YOU so much for a great 3 days. It didn't even feel like work. You and Swati were great company and I loved showing you some of my favourite places in Victoria. I hope you haven't been too affected by the big freeze in USA since you have gotten back. All the best for your future travels. Never.Stop.Exploring. James :) :)
