      Awesome & inspiring!
      Everyone in our group raved about this trip - doing the Reverse tour was the better option because there were no crowds - weather was fabulous (thank you!) and our driver was too! This an experience everyone should have - the scenery, the atmosphere - awesome! I will certainly encourage anyone/everyone who visits this area to 'Hit the Road' with you! Thank you

      Great experience on the Great Ocean Road
      We saw everything that was promised. Great views, kangaroos and a koala. Our guide Neil was friendly and gave interesting information about the landscape and history of the places we visited. I took plenty of pictures to remember this day.

      Nice tour with a great tour guide
      The whole trip experience was amazing. Our tour guide Jimmy Chan was a very gentle and nice person. I can tell that he was enjoying the journey also. He was also very enthusiastic that he talked about many interesting facts/ history on every spot we visited. During the driving, he found several wide koalas on the trees and let us stop by to watch (they were so adorable)! I really appreciate Jimmy’s hard work and will recommend my friends to join the tour:) All the views were breathtaking that id never forget in my life.

      Good experience
      Mark is our day trip guide. He is always ready to help or answer our questions. He drove us to Mt Buller and back. He also provided information about each place and fun facts along the ride. We did a circuit walk, sightseeing chair lift, and later explored the village on our free time. We did a lot of walking and also felt it was a fun and relaxing day out. Thanks Mark from Hit the Road tours for guiding us.

      Absolutely a must do tour, highly recommended in reverse!
      We are a family of 3 from Western Australia and we had a fantastic day out doing this tour! Marty was our guide. He was helpful, funny, very knowledgeable (and I do ask a lot of questions) and made the tour most enjoyable. He went out of his way to make sure we saw both koalas and kangaroos in the wild! We would highly recommend this tour, especially in reverse order. The premium pick up from our hotel at 6.30 am was also worth it as navigating to the pick up point that early would have been trickier! The vas was comfortable, and we saw so so much in the day. What a wonderful way to explore the Great ocean road. This is a must see tour! Thanks Marty, you were great. What an asset this man is to this tour company! Well done !

      Absolutely worth it
      Our driver, Jay, went out of his way to ensure an excellent trip. He made several extra stops to allow us to photograph koalas and kangaroos. He shared some great advice and took photos of us.

      Nice journey but disappointed by Guide's English language skills
      Wonderful journey! Highly recommend doing the great ocean road tour. Unfortunately, we were grouped with a guide whose English accent could not be understood by our group. He is a wonderful person but his language skills are only suited for Chinese speaking tourists. I paid a premium price for the tour but was disappointed that I could not follow the guide's explanation of the tour. Make sure you specify that you want a guide who is fluent in English.

      Great reverse tour of Great Ocean Road!!!
      Our tour guide Marty was wonderful and we found out it was his birthday! He said he loves his job and it showed! He had a great sense of humor and was so knowledgeable about everything! Went out of his way to find wildlife for us to see up close including koalas and kangaroos! The reverse tour is the way to go and Marty made it extra special! Thank you!!!

    Great tour. The reverse itinerary is a cool idea as it makes the tour more efficient. Placing the more physically demanding activities in the first section improves the overall experience. The tour is designed to start early and end early in the evening leaving you enough time for the night in Melbourne.
    Jimmy Chan was a fantastic guide and driver who kept things on schedule whiling running smoothly. He was very knowledgeable about the tour sites and always informed what to expect during the tour ahead of time.

    This trip is an absolutely must-do when in Melbourne! The views were stunning, the tour was very well-planned and organised, and the tour guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. It's a long time on the road, but our guide made us feel very relaxed and safe at all times. We had an amazing time, would definitely recommend!!

    Fantastic tour. This is a long day but you experience remarkable exposure to the area that is so beautiful on the Melbourne coastline. It really helps that they do the tour in reverse because you do the tour opposite other tours and it really helps with congestion at all the many stopping points. We had a very well informed and nice
    guide, the lunch was very good and we had many opportunities for restroom breaks

    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.

    It is such a beautiful trip. Coach driver/guide extremely knowledgeable and shared many interesting facts. Thanks to guide we were able to see Koala and kangaroos in different locations in their natural habitat.
    Although trip states a number of locations, you do not actually stop at them all as some are merely a drive past along the ocean road. Long day but well worth it.

    I had an amazing time with the Hit the Road Tours, the reverse itinerary works really well. I have done the great ocean rd 6 Years ago but it was very packed, I have to say that this time was unbelievable, and magical. To go to 12 apostoles and places on the great ocean and see 20 peoples or less in each stop its something that i never thought was possible.
    The tour guide was very nice and friendly, the bus was very comfortable and clean and myself and my partner we felt very welcome all the time. It was definitely very worth the money.

    The tour was amazing, mainly because of the beautiful views. The drive along the coastline was breathtaking. Jimmy, our guide, is able to speak multi language and is very clear in his explanation and time keeping, to ensure that we maximize the experience. Most importantly, his drive was very smooth, despite the winding roads.
    Great one!

    The entire road trip view was really captivating! Glad that I chose this route as there were fewer people at the Twelve Apostles early at the day. Hence taking photos of the landscape was much easier. Neil our tour guide was really awesome. Sharing us tidbits of information along the way including some tea (iykwim). Gotta say his playlist also matches the sceneries as we drove!

    Fantastic tour! Our guide Peter was not only kind and friendly but also funny, had a huge knowledge, was really open and caring and tried everything to give us the best experience we could have! He even did some extra time to gibe us the opportunity to see both Koalas and Kangaroos. The landscapes have been amazing and there was enough time at every stop. Can recommend that tour for everyone!
