          A day to the great ocean road
          We have got a very friendly and experienced driver/guard, Marty. Compressed time to visit many places. The small group also allows us to interact and is easier to manage. The reverse itinerary is thumbs up.

          "Exploring Coastal Wonders: A Journey with Hit The Roads Tours"
          Today, I had the pleasure of joining Hit The Roads Tours for their Reverse Great Ocean Road tour. It was an extraordinary experience, and I truly relished exploring the breathtaking coastal itinerary. Marty, our tour guide, was a fountain of knowledge that greatly enriched the tour experience.

          Memorable tour of The Great Ocean Road
          This was an amazing tour and would highly recommend to visitors to Melbourne. Our tour guide Wayne was the best, very knowledgeable about the area we were visiting and was very engaging and friendly with all participants of the tour acknowledging everyone by first name (great memory) All the sights were memorable and the Wallabies and Koala's adorable.

          Simple, perfect and lovely!
          The tour was fantastic. The meeting place is super conveniently accessible by transport as it is a stone's throw from Flinder Street station. The trip was comfortable, there were only a few of us and so it was quiet and super chill. The guide was super nice, entertaining and tried to meet everyone's needs and requests. On the way back he also took us to a beautiful factory where they made chocolate and where we were able to get a great ice cream and some very nice little gifts. I would recommend it to anyone!

          10/10 Tour - Highly Recommend
          My partner and I’s tour and experience of the Great Ocean Road was absolutely incredible. Our extremely knowledgeable driver, Neil, ensured that it was a very educational, entertaining and jam-packed tour with lots of things to see and do included. The new Hiace Van was very clean, comfortable and in amazing condition. Despite our drizzly weather, Neil ensured we were safe and as dry as possible throughout the trip. We would recommended this tour to anyone at all, and can guarantee enjoyment and fulfilment.

          A tour with one of the best tour guides
          The main attraction of this tour was the tour guide. He made sure we all had an amazing time and also made sure to make us very comfortable. The concept of the tour is so great, to start the tour at where people end their tours. We got to enjoy the whole attractions all to ourselves without any crowd. Great recommendations for Lunch and Breakfast. Will recommend this tour anytime to anyone.

          Five stars for a reason
          What an amazing way to spend the day! Warren was the absolute best! He did his very best to make sure we saw both koalas and kangaroos in the wild! And we did!!! Absolutely amazing. The Great Ocean Road was gorgeous. Truly loved every minute of the tour. Cannot stress enough how entertaining and educational Warren was!!! 5 stars isn’t enough!!!

          Stunning natural beauty
          We really enjoyed The Great Ocean Road tour! Unfortunately, we ran into some weather which caused us to miss a few of the stops, but our guide did an excellent job of pivoting and trying to work around the rain. The views along the coast are stunning and definitely worth the trip from Melbourne! Our guide provided some great history and commentary as took in the views from the van!

        We spent 2 extraordinary days on a private tour with my husband in the Grampians and on The Great Ocean Road accompanied by our guide. Leanne, with her professionalism, invested 200% to satisfy us as much as possible. She tried to explain slowly because we understand and speak English with difficulty.
        Moreover, she added one more site which was not on the program: the Bay of Martyrs at sunrise, the tragedy of which she told us with passion.
        We were left speechless in front of its landscapes, each more beautiful than the other. The London Bridge, the Bay of Martyrs and of course the Twelve Apostles, the forest, the hikes in the Grampians with an incredible chance of having had 2 days of sunshine 🌞 Without forgetting the wildlife present. Leanne found the places with groups of Kangaroos and looked for Koalas we saw 4. Thanks to Leanne and Orlando for organizing this memorable trip which will remain engraved in our memories.

        Best choice I’ve taken from my trip to Melbourne. It’s worth the money, the tour guide John made the all difference! He’s very kind, funny , knowledgeable and enjoy his job as well as the other tour guide from the same company who was driving on the same day. John did everything he could to accommodate us well and make sure we would have an incredible experience. I was on the same trip as Frank (who apparently left the a bad review here). And what I can say is do not listen to him. Everyone was having a great time, even the passenger who felt sick. It’s a road full of curves and some people can be more affected. If you are this kinda person, just be prepared and try to eat less, inform the driver that you need more time to rest, etc. I really don’t understand people who stays quiet the whole tour, do not suggest anything in person (what I’m pretty sure, John would try his best to attend) and waste the time spreading nasty comments here. The chocolate factory was nice too, good spot for a last break and buying souvenirs.

        The scenic landscapes on this journey are beyond words. I went with my friend and we saw places we will never forget how beautiful they are, and we will definitely repeat this trip in the summer of next year. I would recommend this trip for families and couples.

        I would particularly like to thank our tour leader Jimmy Chen for his enthusiasm during the trip, this guy definitely loves his job. Very friendly and very educated person, especially the random yet accurate information he was telling us during the trip. It was a fun trip because of you, thank you.

        The reverse tour to the 12 Apostles with Hit the Road Tours was SPECTACULAR! Our guide Orlando led us to all the best spots and we avoided any crowds making the experience even more lovely. The sights were beyond beautiful and each stop was more breathtaking than the one before. The ride out was so comfortable and the stops for breakfast and lunch were charming and delicious. We loved every moment of this day and it was certainly enhanced by having such a terrific, knowledgeable and friendly guide as well as a comfortable ride, complete with great music! Again, a MUST DO! You won't be disappointed!

        The trip was well worth it. The scenery was beyond belief. Jay was an excellent guide who took us to all the right places - koalas, kangeroos, and scenic places. He also suggested good restaurants and helped to take great pictures.
