We stopped off at Lorne overnight. We just loved this seaside resort. the weather was amazing and our hotel at the Cumberland was very comfortable. The next day we were picked up on time by our bus driver Richard who was so interesting in his commentaries. I would thoroughly recommend Richard as a tour guide - he was the best. We loved all the sites along the coast and even the journey back through farm lands was interesting. All in all it was an amazing tour - well worth going and we will have happy memories for a long time. Thank you very much.

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!

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.

This was a trip I have long wanted to do and I was not disappointed. My wife and I stayed overnight in Apollo Bay - recommended. Both drivers, outwards and inwards, were lively, friendly and full of information with some good stories thrown in. We even saw a koala. Good value all round.

The Great Ocean Road Tour was great. I took advantage of the helicopter ride at the 12 Apostles which was a highlight. Tour guide was very informative.

The overnight in Lorne however was disappointing as it was off season and nothing to do in the town as everything closed early...perhaps the other overnight location would have been better. More details regarding the choices would have been helpful

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.

Good trip - especially the first day. Had some trouble on the second day.
