    A superb three day trip on The Great Ocean Road
    Review of: Adventure Sunset Three Day Great Ocean Road Tour
    We were the first group to go on the three day Great Ocean road trip offered by Around and About. They also offer one and two day trips along the Great Ocean Road which are probably very good, but we felt the one that we did enabled us to see things without being rushed.

    Walter, our driver and guide, was excellent. He knows the area well and was able to show us many of its secrets. Highlights were the Twelve Apostles, the Otway National Park Treetop walk, the beautiful beaches and a visit to a chocolaterie and a lighthouse .

    The accommodation was simple but comfortable and at the second night hostel there were very good value pizzas available if you didn’t fancy going out to eat.

    Walter’s timing was spot-on (an early start every morning meant we arrived at each beauty spot before they were crowded) and as a result there were plenty of opportunities to admire stunning views from look outs in addition to the highlights mentioned above. Very welcome were the hot drinks, cakes and fruit that water served each morning, all included. There were also options for a helicopter flight and a zip line experience in the forest.
    Overall we were very happy with our trip, which we would unhesitatingly recommend.
