A wonderful experience. The Great Ocean Road offers absolutely stunning views as you drive past some pretty seaside towns. There was plenty of time for stops for photos, walks, food and drinks etc. The bus was quite cramped, not much leg room. Laid back and friendly drivers and fellow travellers from around the world added to the experience. Good catering along the way.

Super nice guide, really fun tour, got to see lots of fantastical Australian wildlife up close in nature and beautiful countryside, with a really easy way to do it on a short bus with small group of other travelers. Beaches to Hall's Pass, 350 people, 35,000 kangaroos, recommend!

A very nice and extensive trip, with a friendly guide, who knew a lot about nature. And the ending with the penguins was a real icing on the cake. Highly recommended!

It is truly extraordinary of guides who love nature and are enchanted by their work. That's wonderful ! We laughed and the atmosphere is impeccable I recommend!

Excellent trip. Guide was exceptional. Saw lots of wildlife and the beautiful scenery.
