A must tour small group tour. Review of: Full-Day Great Ocean Road Tour from Melbourne. Walter was a great guide and organised an excellent tour. We have been on the great ocean road a few times but enjoyed this one the most. For example the fact that leaving early in the morning ensured we were not waiting in queues and had time to enjoy the sites. We also visited other places like the rain forest and area to view koalas in their natural habitat and feed native parrots. The only negative were the seats which were a bit narrow and uncomfortable for the long day.

so amazing adventure. We come from china, and we are 6 persons.1 family (1 teenager), and 2 young girls. I booked this activies from the interner in China, and I worried if the traverller agence could pick us up at the hotel on time, cause we are in the different city . Fortunately, the tour guide picked us up , prepared morning tea, introduced the scenic spots, told us to be safety everytime especially cross the road(cause in china right way of road). We had 2 amazing days of the great ocean road, saw beautiful coastline, pretty villages, enjoy nice chocolates. My chinese friends saw my photos, and I am very glad to recommend this nice trip to them ! I just have 1 suggestion : when the traveller on their trip, could the company give every tourist a piece of paper that introduce some information’s like the name of the scene, the story or the location about what scenes they will see . Cause the guide will tell us the information’s, but when we go around the scene, we can also refer the “guide information”. And when we finished trip, you can recycle the paper for protect environment , and also can let the tourist to keep as a souvenir. Thanks!

Great Ocean Road Day Tour and Helicopter Ride. We had the Best 1 Day Tour Ever. Walter was so informative and he showed us all the best spots to see along the way. He was efficient and punctual. We got to see koala’s , Kangaroo’s and Beautiful Birds along the way. The helicopter ride was amazing to see the 12 Apostles from a birds eye. Shaun and I will definitely book another tour with you and we highly recommend you to anyone traveling to Melbourne and want to see the great ocean road.
