I am not much for tourist attractions but I was recommended to go on The Great Ocean Road while in Australia. The reason why I went on this particular tour was that it fit everything in a day returning to Melbourne in the evening since I couldn't afford to spend 2-3 on it. My tour guide Chris N was extremely knowledgeable doing this for a long time and was friendly to take pictures for his guests.

This tour was operated by GoWest Tours who were fabulous. Chris our tour guide was the best. He gave us enough time to do the walks, see the sights, get lunch and dinner and was incredibly informative. He was so interesting and did the walks with us and took our photos. Absolutely perfect. Would recommend booking this tour as Gowest organize great well planned and great value for money tours .

22/8/2022 tour experience was absolutely fantastic, there is nothing negative to comment about this trip. Tour company prompt and efficient, they have called to advise first thing in the morning that bus will be a few minutes delayed due to traffic. That is excellent service. Tour guide Chris Hill is outstanding with his professional, friendly, efficient and caring service he has provided. He has gone beyond and above with his service and he should be awarded. He was training Max and Max is an excellent young professional, he has proven himself to be confident and will be a credit to company. Even though, it was a very long day tour, Chris and Max made themselves available at all times to make journey comfortable to passengers. Chris putting customers first all the time, very polite, friendly and willing to accommodate to everyone to keep everyone happy. I have not experienced such a great service until yesterday and i have been on many tours before with other companies, other places. Overall, it was a perfect day experience.

This trip was fantastic - great value for money! The sights were absolutely breathtaking.

Jon C was the best guide I've ever had for a tour - I would happily do this exact tour again with him (or any other tour). He was courteous, knowledgeable, personable, fun, and flexible to the group's needs.

I did the optional extra helicopter ride, which took my trip over the top and gave me even more special moments from this adventure. If you love flying or want a unique experience that you'll remember forever, highly recommend this extra as well.

Chris N. did a wonderful job of narrating all the amazing sights that we saw on the Great Ocean Road tour. It was awesome to get out of the city and truly see the beauty of Australia. I am glad we went in a small group and we truly enjoyed our day. I highly recommend this tour. Oh, and Chris played awesome music on our journey. I think ABBA would be a nice group to add to your playlist :-)

Just went on a tour with legit the best tour guide Aaron from Go west! Honestly his passion of all the nature on display was contagious, and made ever moment in between each stop so much fun! Every moment of the tour enjoyable. He gave background knowledge of so many things! He went over and beyond and you can tell he really enjoys what he does! I totally 100% would recommend! The company is very blessed to have such a passionate man on staff showing people around. 😊

This is a must do! Aaron our guide is the best tour guide ever! He not only supplied an endless supply of enthusiasm but was so knowledgeable about the history and the great ocean road. He showed us all the cool spots, with epic scenery. We west tour for a wonderful experience and highly recommend doing this tour if you are staying in Melbourne.

What a great trip. Our guide, Red, was personable, funny, kept to the timeline in a very considerate manner and his jokes were funny. This area if Australia is full of beautiful geography and amazing animals. We saw kangaroos and koalas, plus 12 Apotles and the Loch Ard George. And the other areas in between. I did ask to see the cocktails near Colcat and Red made sure we saw the in what seems like thousands. A trip to be remembered long ito the future. Thank you!!
