The tour was fantastic, value for money. The coach Terry was very helpful, conscientious and polite. He tried very hard to help us to search the koalas and birds in the National Park. Fortunately, we could see one koala before we left. The scenery of 12 Apostles and Loch Ard Gorge were amazing. I would highly recommend this tour to those who are fans of natural landscapes, you won’t be disappointed!

We were very satisfied with this tour. Our driver/ guide was such a friendly/nice gentleman. Along the way he never failed to impress us with all the information. He was super nice, offered his help many times in taking our pictures. Never rushed us, always checking on us to make sure we were all good. Would surely recommend this tour.

I had such a great time visiting the Great Ocean Road! Got to see so many different beaches especially the 12 apostles which was beautiful! Also really enjoyed Matt's jokes and commentaries - he was very informative and knowledgeable about the different places. Can't recommend it enough!
