The group had 22 of us. Our guide and driver Amy was excellent. She was very friendly, funny and extremely knowledgeable and she played great music! It's a tiring whole day affair with a lot of time on the road but then it does take a full day to properly see all that needs to be seen on the Great Ocean Road, and this tour makes sure of that. There were lots of opportunities to take beautiful photographs. I would have preferred if the seats on the mini-van had more legroom as it was a bit cramped but otherwise, my family and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Would highly recommend this tour from Go West.
Ma famille et moi avions été déçu car c’etait trop speed Il fallait courir tout le temps et cette excursion nous a été plus s stressante qu’autre chose au final arrive aux 12 apôtres nous étions crevé et avions limite à quelques photos . Puis on est retourné dans le bus attendre les autres Cette excursion est plus adaptée pour des personnes qui descendent du bus prennent leur photos et remonte aussitôt sans prendre de temps ni d’admirer correctement ce qui nous entoure C’est bien dommage car le paysage était magnifique et nous avions eu un temps superbe. Amy était très gentille et elle connaît parfaitement son job
I HIGHLY recommend this tour if you only have a few days in Melbourne. It is a long day and there is a lot packed into the tour. Our tour guide was the nicest and very knowledgable about everything. Many people I see complained in reviews below about the food but we went to the Koala Cafe and I thought the food was pretty good and perfect for a full day ahead. The only thing is I wish we had more time at the Twelve Apostles and Gibson Steps. We didn't have as much time here because of traffic and other people were late so it was not our guide's fault. If you need more time though I suggest renting a car and staying on the Great Ocean Road a few days.
The Great Ocean Road is a must see when in the Melbourne area and this is a good way to do it. We were able to watch the scenery on the bus, and our guide, Jordan, told us about the history and gave us lots of great information about what we were seeing. We got to get out and walk around at the most scenic locations—would have been nice to have more time to spend at each, but I understand that they have to keep to the schedule. Highly recommended! The only thing that I didn’t enjoy was the music played on the PA system. It was more annoying than entertaining, but at least the volume was kept low.
I'm happy I picked this tour and booked here with this company. The tour company was GoWest and everything was very professional.The vehicle was comfy and I did't get carsick despite that it was a long drive and hot outside. Not enough time for the attractions, managed to do it all but barely. I would suggest to skip the rain forest trek and spend more time on the 12 Apostles.Highly recommend this.
