Tour was wonderful but I was very disappointed that the tour guide was more interested in the Eurovision Song Contest than dropping me back at my hotel, which I paid for

Hi Yasu, We're glad you've had a wonderful tour. The well planned itinerary runs smoothly and you never feel tired, despite a long day. In regards to your drop-off, this was definitely a misunderstanding. The tour guide only mentioned it was quicker to walk than driving to your hotel, due to traffic conditions in Melbourne. But he never refused to drop you off there. Hotel pickup/drop off is included at the Premium tour and there's no argument about it. Cheers, Orlando
Had a lovely day

I liked our guide Gui. He is awesome. I felt like he was a friend. Also liked the fact that the trip was organised and the guide was very punctual
Road Trip to Remember

Despite poor weather we had a great day out at Ocean Road. This is a must do experience for locals or visitors and as all the driving is taken care of its also the easiest way to see all the sites which are spectacular. Our driver "Jack" was excellent throughout, informative and had loads on jokes to share along the way. Calling at the 12 Apostles there is a opportunity for anyone wishing to see the the coast from a helicoptor for about $145. One of our party went and said it was great. We saw it on foot along with the rest of the party. As mentioned the weather on returning through the Rainforest, Apollo Bay and Lorne was awful and cant say too much about these places. On a sunny day - Lorne would be a good spot to visit and even stay. Our last stop was at a Chocolate Factory which was very good. All the party loved this place. Overall a long day but well worth.

Great experience and best guide

Totally recommended. We were going to drive ourselves. Now I think tour is better. Jack our tourist guide was humorous and very responble , very fortunate to have him

The tour guide, Jack was very friendly and patient. we were standing in the wrong pick up spot, he came and picked us up without any burble. I have been on the Great ocean rd tour a few years ago, but I didn't see that many beautiful places compare to this company tour, this time we can see a lot of the angle of the Razors, and different town, beach. Another thing I like about this trip is on time, we can see many beautiful places but still can go back to Mel CBD without any rushing. I am happy to give them 5 stars. Good job Jack. Thank You

Where do I start. What a breath taking experience. Seeing all the wonderful icons of Victoria. It was a well planned and organised day. Gui the driver was super friendly and knowledgeable. Gui made us feel very welcome and and was happy to take photos along the tour. We visited some great places and because you do the tour in reverse you don’t have the usual crowds. I would totally recommend this tour to all my friends as it was just amazing. If every one is on time returning to the bus at each stop you will be rewarded with an awesome surprise stop before returning to the city. A+ Thanks GUI
Nice time

As advertised!

We took this tour during a difficult time with the Cove-19 alerts. We could not have been more pleased. Under difficult circumstances Jack, our guide, was professional, friendly and humorous. As this was a very long tour (8 hrs.) he interacted with the guests just the right amount. He shared his knowledge and he was also quiet for long periods of time (unlike other guides who continually fill up the air). We would highly recommend the REVERSE tour as you get the long drive over with first. There is a lot of variety offered in the day and all the sites were well worth the visit. This tour will go down as a highlight of our Australian tour. The beauty of the Ocean Road is unparelled! We would highly recommend this tour.
