Great small group experience
Salome_Z, 20-12-2022
Paul was an attentive, informative and entertaining guide. The small group of 11 was ideal, it is fun to interact with other people from throughout the world. The food stops were good, lunch was delicious with the option to turn the fish and chips into grilled fish and salad for a healthy alternative. The Great Ocean Road and Twelve Apostles are a must see and this tour is a great way to experience them and more.
One of the best tours I've taken!

Our tour with Brendan was one of the highlights of our two weeks in Australia. We chose this tour for the smaller group size, and it was worth it. Everything was well organized, the van was comfortable, the stops were well chosen and well timed, and Brendan was an incredible guide. He brought great energy to the day, was fun to get to know, shared so much information about Australia and the sites we visited, and made a point of really connecting with everyone on the tour. By the end of the day, I felt like we had a new friend in him. I'm so glad we reserved a day for this. As I think about my next visit to Australia (one day), I may take this tour again - I feel like it would be enjoyable a second time around... that I would see things I missed the first time.
Great tour

Superb. Brendan the guide was excellent. He ensured that we got the best experience. Being part of a small group was a real bonus. Totally recommend!
Breathtaking Scenery. Not to be missed.

Amazing Day filled with breathtaking scenery. Comfortable ride in the Mercedes van and lots of planning to make sure there were frequent stops for food, washrooms and stretching.
The Great Ocean Road Experience provides some of the most spectacular scenery and great opportunities to spot Australian wildlife in their natural habitat.
Brendan’s commentary and music makes the trip a fun and memorable experience for all.
It’s a must if you are visiting this part of the world.

What a wonderful day with Brendan our tour guide. Small party of 11 people from UK, Canada, USA and Singapore. Brendan’s knowledge of Australian history and heritage was excellent and lots of information about the wildlife was interesting and fun. Places you visit are beautiful the fish and chips were lovely. You think 12 hours is a long time but it flies over. All in all a brilliant experience would highly recommend. Thanks for a great day Brendan
Fantastic Trip
