The tour of the Great Ocean Road I took on June 20 was absolutely fantastic. The landscape is well worth the trip, Daniel was our guide and he was excellent. He was so knowledgeable and very friendly. He made everything interesting. He was very professional but in a relaxed and friendly way and made sure we all had a really great day. He was very kind to everyone with great stories and information. The food at lunch and dinner stops was very good with lots of options for vegetarians and gluten free. Daniel kept us on schedule yet he didn't make us feel rushed at all. The success of a tour is always because of the quality of the tour guide and Daniel made it a great tour.Reviewed by: Rita M, July 2014
An enjoyable and well organised tour from start to finish with a huge diversity of great scenery and photo ops; coastal villages and iconic surfing spots; rolling green hills with sheep and cattle farms; and time for a few short walks in fern-filled rainforest and along coastal boardwalks. We saw kangaroos, koalas and colourful parrots along the away and or friendly.
The operators have great staff - from our well informed driver/tour guide Allan who made the whole day a pleasure to friendly, helpful Travis who did our morning hotel pick up and too great delight in remembering our names and helping to introduce and break the ice for our small group of strangers. Much better that one of those big tour buses!Reviewed by: Paul C, Australia, July 2014
This tour was amazing! Our guide Nicky.. made this tour one of the best I've taken on my many travels around the world. I highly recommend adding the helicopter ride to view the 12 Apostles... there is no better view than from the air over the ocean! This tour company was 100%+++ well organised, helpful and made every minute of our very long day a fun and memorable time for all. Thank you!!!Reviewed by: David, June 2014
It was a long day trip but it was worth it. The drive to GOR was scenic and enjoyable. Despite the rain and cold throughout the day, we were kept delighted by the humorous driver cum guide, Daniel from Gowest! He took the trouble to introduce everyone on the coach and interacted with all of us. The walk through the Mait's Rest Rainforest was a highlight for my family. It was fun trekking through the forest in the rain. The sights at Loch Ard George, London Arch and the Twelve Apostles certainly were awesome.
However, the lunch was somewhat disappointing. My girls actually hated it. But, overall it was still a memorable trip for my family.
Great tour guild, friendly, fully of energy and proactive.Reviewed by: Tommy D, June 2014
