Great ocean road trip was AMAZING!!! The scenery was breathtaking, and Hilda’s cheerful, happy personality just made the trip even better! She introduced all the background details, and made sure we’re all taken care of. I’m very glad to have her as my tour guide. Definitely recommend Hilda and this trip!!!

The trip was a wonderful experience and worth the money spent. Especially if you consider that we managed to see all of the top attractions on the ocean road in 1 day. Our Guide/driver, Stefan took wonderful care of us. He was warm and pleasant and extremely patient inspite of the few people who constantly came late. The pick up in CBD is at Rendevous Hotel so make sure to plan your route there in the morning. The only downside was the size of the bus especially since we were in it for half a day. it's a small bus with a capacity of 24 people and less leg space. Overall, I would definitely recommend this tour if you have a day to spend in Melbourne

Punctual pickup from Bert, he was the best guide. He was very nice and made the tour very fun. He also gave us “insider tips”. Although we were only on the Great Ocean Road for one day, we felt we made the best of it! We can only recommend the tour, many thanks to Bert for the unforgettable experience!
