Had a fantastic experience with Melbourne's Best Day Tours on the Great Ocean Road. The bus picked me up a few minutes early, and was happy to see we were only 11 on a 24 seater bus, so quite relaxed. We were very lucky to have Khalid as our driver and guide; he was very entertaining and informative throughout the ride, that we didn't feel we covered so much distance (550KM round trip!). The tour itself is highly recommended.

That's so wonderful to hear, ZedDubai! Indeed, the distance travelled on the Great Ocean Road is long, but we're so happy to hear that Khalid made it worthwhile and seemed shorter than it actually was. We hope to see you again soon; until then, safe travels and take care!

Went for the great ocean road day tour with Melbourne's Best tours. Peter was a fantastic tour guide, loved listening to all his knowledge of the area and his funny jokes. His driving is rather fast which I guess is important as you have a lot of road to cover but was a little scary at times in the back. Managed to see some beautiful spots along the ocean road also loved feeding the birds and seeing koalas in the wild. I think in general this is a really good tour for what it is but the great ocean road is too much to do in one day and if you have time would recommend spreading it over a few days.

Hi JFizz01,

Thank you so much for taking the time to tell us about your trip! We love Peter here at Melbourne's Best, and we're glad his enthusiasm, vast knowledge and wit shone through your day out with him. With regards to his driving, we will pass on your constructive feedback to all drivers; letting them know that it can appear scary to guests sitting at the back, who would experience more of the windy nature of the road. Please rest assured that with all our coaches have speed limit devices, meaning that all our drivers are to drive within the limit at all times - road safety is the most important concern of any of our tours.

We're glad that overall you had a great time with us, and hope to see you again in the near future. Until then, take care and safe travels!

We had a terrific 12 hour experience with our driver, Peter, who took us out for the day. There were only 11 of us in a small van for this great day out. The scenery is spectacular and even though it is a very long day of driving, you stop every 1-1 1/2 hours to see something or do something along the way...like a forest walk, feeding birds, viewing a beach, having lunch or coffee break, etc. Peter provided a wealth of information and was very tolerant of any of our delays due to over zealous tourist behaviour!! As a group we were okay with getting back almost an hour past our time. However, when the van stops be sure to hop out and do or see whatever. Yes, you will be spending a lot of time driving, but how else to get to see this scenery. There are lots of other tour vans and buses along the same tourist trail. Just a reminder that the Great Ocean Road is a very twisting road so if you suffer from motion sickness, be prepared. Well worth the whole day out of the city.

Hi 1956traveller,

Thank you for your wonderful review! We're so happy to hear that you had a great time with Peter, and will certainly pass your positive review onto him. Indeed there is not such a thing as "too much time" out on the Great Ocean Road; at every attraction, there's just so much to see! Thank you once again for choosing to travel with us, and we hope to see you again soon!

Had a great day, it was a very long day as it is a fair distance away from Melbourne. Part of the great ocean road was closed due to flooding a couple of weeks ago so had to travel inland a bit which added more time onto the trip. The 12 apostles were amazing and lunch was yummy at Apollo bay. Allow a bit longer than returning to Melbourne at @ 7.30pm in case you get any hold ups on the way. Thank you Melbourne best day tours for a great day.
