Such an amazing and totally worthwhile trip! The coach was spacious, comfortable and really clean - ideal! The guide, Liam, was really knowledgeable about the landscape and history and also peppered his commentary with some jokes and anecdotes which made the whole experience more enjoyable! He also knew when to give us a break from talking which was really good on such a long day! The views along the ocean road were incredible, and each stop had something knew to see or discover - every one was well worth it! If you want a trip to walk into the rainforests or see animals in their natural habitat then this maybe isn’t the right tour for you, but we still did get an amazing view of a few sleepy koalas up a tree which was really amazing for me! And there were loads of cockatoos to see and all the unfamiliar noises of Australian nature - just amazing! Would really recommend this tour - I’m really glad I did it and It’ll definitely be a big talking point from my visit to Australia!
Overall the general day was good but the main feature, 12 Apostles, was very disappointing because of cloud/mist cover. The principle of getting there early to avoid the crowds is great if you get to see the main attraction. I thought given the weather the trip could have been slightly re-arranged to ensure main feature was viewable. The other events on the day, Koalas was good but you seem to cram a great deal into the day not always getting enough time at the main features.
The tour was really good and the guide was professional and nice. He answered every questions during the tour and he spoke about many stories. The weather was just beautiful so we were able to enjoy this beautiful road. You must do the great ocean road !
Tim was a great guide! Was cheery and informative as well as told a few stories that were interesting. The tour was wonderful. Great sights, saw some Koalas, and lunch provided was good. Highly recommended. Also, the tour lasted over 12 hours FYI
It is a bus ride which is 10 hours . Bring snacks although lunch is good you will need a water bottle. Bring extra clothing as it was colder than predicted. Young kids may have difficulty with riding so long.
