"The tour was awesome. Got to spend time at all the major highlights of the Great Ocean Road! Tour guide was very helpful and nice. Would highly recommend as price is unbeatable."
"We had a wonderful time on this tour with a knowledgeable, friendly and interesting tour guide Rob R. The views are simply amazing!! A must visit!"
"We recently took part in the Great Ocean road tour. We liked that it is small group, giving us more flexibility and a nicer feeling than the larger coaches. The guide was friendly and informative."
"My trip to GOR with wildlife tours was good, about 23 passengers in the bus. Our guide Phil was telling few stories about the GOR and rate the tour as decent trip, nothing extraordinary or bad. The tour timing was good as the promised. The experience throughout the trip is priceless, beautiful beach, rocks, rainforest no words to describe."

What an amazing tour with Rob, he had us in stitches. The views were amazing at the great ocean road. Everyone on the tour I spoke to really enjoyed themselves. Thanks Rob
Thanks for a good time. The koalas were my favorite of the one day tour. A long drive but the tour guide made it more fun.
I had an amazing time with Darren on the Great Ocean Road tour. He answered all our questions and helped us get the best out of our cameras by taking nice photos of beautiful places.
