Fantastic day on The Great Ocean Road

My sister and I had a fantastic day on our private Great Ocean Road tour. Our guide Richard picked us up on time from our hotel and we set out for a truly great day. We discussed what we would be doing for the day and left the city for our adventure. We saw multiple sites along the way and made several stops to take in the breathtaking scenery along The Great Ocean Road. We spotted Kangaroos along the way and were fortunate enough to spot a Koala. Richard knew all the best spots to look for them. We had a stop for a coffee mid morning and walked up to view the lighthouse. We took a beautiful walk through the rainforest
Following a delicious fresh seafood lunch
eaten overlooking the bay from which the fish were caught! The stop at the Twelve Apostles was stunning. Richards knowledgable commentary was fabulous. We made more stops along the way and the day sadly was over before we knew it.
My sister and I highly recommend this tour. Our day with Richard was a highlight of our visit to Melbourne.

James was absolutely amazing. We saw wild kangaroos and Koalas. He knew all of the local spots to grab excellent coffee, cakes and a fabulous seaside lunch. We also did the city tour with him and had the best day. Can’t say enough about James. He is warm, passionate about his city, and takes you off the beaten path. If I could give more than five stars I would.
His card reads… Authentic, local experiences for people who don’t like tours.
Life down under at its peak!

Legit best tour my wife and I been on. Martin was an amazing guide! We saw koalas and kangaroos in the wild and got super close. Martin our guide did a great job bringing us to the best local spots for lunch on the water and best views of the 12 apostles. I couldn’t of had a better time and for a 12 hour tour it felt like it was only a hour. Anyone who decides to do a Viator group tour over this is making the worst decision. Pony up the extra bucks and thank me later! Thanks again Martin!
Excellent trip of the 12 apostles

Bianca the great Koala spotter took us along Ocean Road to the 12 Apostles. Amazing day, wonderful, happy and knowledgeable guide and really special sights including over a dozen koalas in the wild which Bianca excelled at spotting and was so gracious to allow us extra time with them even though it made her late off work. Such a sweetheart and highly recommend

If we could give Josh more than 5 stars we would. We truly felt like we were spending the day with a friend who was very knowledgeable about the area and was excited to show it off to us. He tailored everything to fit our needs and made us feel very special along the way. We highly recommend this tour group!
