In general the tour was good but there was a lot of traffic in Lorne due to a festival, and the company could have warned us about it before so we could decide to pass 15 hours in the bus or not.. Saying that we spent the first 5 hours on the tour without seeing anything but road. Luckily the guide (Jake) had a lot of patience and managed to keep us entertained telling us stories and knowledge about Melbourne and the Great Ocean Road.

Great trip along the ocean road! Sights were amazing and a total must see if you’re in Melbourne. Our guide Christian was super fun and knowledgeable of the area. Transport was comfortable and cool and the stop offs gave ample time to check out the areas! Everyone had a fab time!
