Paul was absolutely fantastic and truly made this experience one of a kind. He is incredibly knowledgeable, engaging, funny, and kind and took this trip to the next level. If I could give more than 5 stars I would, and definitely recommend this trip with Paul to anyone and everyone seeking a day trip to the Great Ocean Road.

This tour was absolutely perfect! It is organized so incredibly well, and Paul is one of the best tour guides we’ve ever had! We were initially worried about the length of the tour, but Paul made the day fly by! Plus there was time at the end to rest, which was perfect for our jet lagged selves. Bonus, he takes the perfect pictures which is so helpful when it’s just my husband and I traveling together. I cannot recommend this tour enough! Highly recommend it!

This trip was definitely one of the high lights of my holiday in Australia. We were extremely lucky with sunny blue skies throughout which made the day extra special. The driver and tour guide Paul was amazing. He made everybody feel very welcome and from start to finish of the trip, he looked after us and kept us very much entertained regaling his stories and facts. I would definitely recommend this trip as must do.
