It was a fantastic trip despire the dreary weather. The drivers were full of interesting facts and stories and brought us to several sightseeing spots along the coast. I would also highly recommend staying a night at the Apollo Bay Hotel and exploring their weekend market, unless you don't mind being in a bus all day (8am-9pm) or are not prone to motion sickness!Reviewed by: H.M Yan, December 2010
The Great Ocean Road Bus Tour was such an amazing trip for us. The drivers were great and gave excellent suggestions for when we stopped. From the restaurant suggestions to the Heli Ride the driver's knowledge to the trip was spot on to having an unforgettable time. The afternoon and night we spent at Lorne was a great way to break up the trip. This gave us a chance to walk the beach and take a hike around the area where we got to see up close koalas in the wild. Never being to the area or country before this was a great way to plan a vacation. Thanks Viator for a vacation that we will never forget.Reviewed by: Donald O, USA, October 2009
The views were amazing, even though the weather was not very kind - overcast, ocassional rain and relatively cold. Some negative points about this trip were that the extra day in my opinion was a waste of time as we were dropped off in Apollo Bay and left for 24 hours. Mistakenly I assumed I would have more things to see if I took 2 days instead of one, but this was not the case. Apollo Bay is a very pretty area, but there is very little to do there except go for a walk, sit on the beach or eat. The other negative point was that the driver on the second day was one hour late arriving at the pickup point, so by the end of the day we arrived back in Melbourne 2 hours later than scheduled. I realise that timings are estimated, but a 2 hour delay for no explainable reason was a little irritating.Reviewed by: Nicki S, United Kingdom, March 2010
Good trip - especially the first day. Had some trouble on the second day.Reviewed by: Ian B, Australia, January 2010
This trip was extremely disappointing!!! This trip was billed as a two day Great Ocean Road experience. The bus dropped us off at Apollo Bay at 1:00 on Thursday. The bus picked us up at 2:00 on Friday. So we virtually went on a one day Great Ocean Road trip with a 24 hour overnight stay at a Comfort Inn. Our room was on the first floor facing the parking lot and so there was traffic in and out all hours of the night. When we got to Apollo Bay we were stranded for 25 hours with no transportation.Reviewed by: Toni S, USA, February 2008
