The entire day was very well organized, from the Hotel pick up to the choice of stops along the way. Thanks to the best tour guide and driver Aaron, he did a wonderful job telling us lots of interesting facts, having a laugh and bringing everybody safely back zu Melbourne.

This was a well run tour, where you get to see a range of things along the great ocean road. All the stops were interesting, with a balance of picture opportunities and being able to stretch your legs. It’s a long day but there are opportunities to get refreshments and have loo stops at the right times. Information from the tour guide was good throughout the day and he made an effort to include everyone in the group.

I participated alone, but thanks to our guide, Kevin, the atmosphere in the bus soon became good, and I was able to enjoy the long 13-hour trip from start to finish, taking pictures with each other at the sightseeing spots. Also, Kevin's commentary was easy to understand even for me, who is not good at English, and I was grateful. The Great Ocean Road, of course, the dynamic scenery of the “12 Apostles” was overwhelming, but the other programs were well thought out and it was a very satisfying and fulfilling tour. So I would like to recommend this tour of this company to my friends.
