This tour is a long day (picked up at 7:30am, returned at 9:30pm) but worth every minute. The Great Ocean Road is stunning and we saw every one of the Road's best sights along the way. There are a lot of sights to fit in but the time at each location was just right.
The tour was operated by Gray Line tours and I cannot recommend them highly enough. They were extremely efficient and well organised and our driver James was just amazing. He told us so history and information along the route that he must have been exhausted by the end of the day. James obviously loves his job and went to great lengths to make everyone feel comfortable. He also made sure everyone was delivered safely home to the door of their hotel if that is what they wanted.

I only had the week-end to see Melbourne and the surrounding area and I am so pleased I chose this trip....lunch was lovely too.

Reviews

This tour is a long day (picked up at 7:30am, returned at 9:30pm) but worth every minute. The Great Ocean Road is stunning and we... saw every one of the Road's best sights along the way. There are a lot of sights to fit in but the time at each location was just right.
The tour was operated by Gray Line tours and I cannot recommend them highly enough. They were extremely efficient and well organised and our driver James was just amazing. He told us so history and information along the route that he must have been exhausted by the end of the day. James obviously loves his job and went to great lengths to make everyone feel comfortable. He also made sure everyone was delivered safely home to the door of their hotel if that is what they wanted.

I only had the week-end to see Melbourne and the surrounding area and I am so pleased I chose this trip....lunch was lovely too.
