This is an excellent tour that includes a stop to see koalas in the wild as well as a walk through breathtaking temperate rainforest, in addition to the 12 Apostles and other amazing coastal features within close proximity of the apostles. Margaret was a memorable tour guide who exhibited, infectious enthusiasm for her country and the stunning scenery that can be witnessed along the Great Ocean Road. It's one thing to have a great itinerary, but when that is coupled with a high caliber guide like Margaret, it just makes for a very rewarding overall experience and one I will be sure to remember and recommend in the future.

We were picked up at a hotel and driven to a second location where we boarded a different van with our guide. Our tour was full up and the van was tight so we had to hold our belongings on our laps which isn’t ideal for a 12 hour tour. Our guide Sarah was energetic and informative- she was also helpful in taking photos of everyone on their cell phones. Our group included many non English speaking people so a white board was used to communicate the time everyone was expected back on the bus.
As always, there were those that were the last ones back at each stop. As the day wore on, we started to fall behind schedule. At Razorback, Sarah lost control of the group and we left 15 minutes late. That may not seem like a lot but the sunset doesn’t wait for anyone- as a result, we rushed to pick up our dinner which most people ate in the bus and when we arrived at 12 Apostles the daylight was gone, the viewing platform was crowded and sunset had already started. So although we had an hour there, the last 30 minutes was completely in the dark. Sarah had left with the van and we were standing in the parking lot waiting for her for 20 minutes in the cold. She never told us she was leaving and showed up just last 9 pm with no explanation.
The trip back to Melbourne took over 2 hours so we arrived at our hotel at 11:30 pm.
We tipped Sarah despite all the issues because she dropped us off in front of our hotel.
What started out as a wonderful tour missed the mark totally when it came to the highlight destination. If you want to take this tour, try and book the entire van with 20 friends that you can depend on to be on time because your guide won’t necessarily keep control over the schedule and you could miss what you really came to see.

Such a fantastic day... a great mix of driving & stop offs considering the distance covered. It was a grey day but the sun appeared at the perfect time for the 12 Apostles sunset!
Felix the driver & tour guide was top notch... the music was on-point all day, he was very kind, considerate, entertaining and helpful. A brilliant day. I went with my friend, visiting from the UK. We had a great laugh and a memorable day. Loch Ard Gorge was awesome too and an unexpected treat for the eyes! The tour group was a good size. We highly recommend this to those that are time poor, like us, and want a quick day trip that really shows the majesty of the Great Ocean Road with a wonderful guide and spot-on soundtrack!!
Danni & Jen (thanks again Felix!) 😆

My mum and I did the great ocean road small group tour . It was such a lovely day doing numerous sight seeing stops, finishing up at the 12 Apostles, Loch Ard Gorge and Gibsons steps for sunset. Our guide Aaron was amazing, so informative and fun. It was a day that will remember forever.

We'd done Great Ocean Road about 15yrs ago with friends, but we'd not seen sunset over the 12 apostles.
We left the city at 11am.
Our driver and guide Paul was very personable, funny and full of knowledge and facts. Very fascinating.
We had a couple of well spaced stops en route and returning.
It was great to see the rocks at sunset and we would definitely recommend going on a tour like this to do Great Ocean Road.
The one thing is just to consider the time of year and sunset time. Our sunset was 2050, which meant we did not start our return journey back until 2130, meaning we got back to Melbourne after midnight.
Paul was amazing the whole time as driver and guide, and got us all safely back to our hotels.
Thanks Paul 😊

My daughter and I took this tour, leaving Melbourne approximately 11 am. We had a wonderful day. It is a long trip but our Tour guide Paul made frequent stops and kept us entertained with historical information, amusing stories and his engaging personality. We arrived at the 12 Apostles around 8:30 pm and had about an hour to enjoy the sunset and changing hues. It really was magnificent at this time of day. We Thoroughly recommend this tour.

We had the Great Ocean Road Day tour and with Sherif as our guide. Sherif started and ended the tour by playing a didgeridoo which I think is awesome. We learned a lot about the places we went to thanks to him. It was a great experience and highly recommended. 👍🏻😄

I went for a full-day trip from Melbourne to 12 Apostles via Great Ocean Road. Cloe is amazing in coordinating the trip, making engagement and contact with everyone to make them feel accomodated. She also reviews great food on the stop along way! Overall, great value for money and great experience!

Awesome experience! Managed to catch a gorgeous sunset at the loch ard gorge and even a rainbow at twelve apostles! Special mention to my tour guide — sherif! A very enthusiastic and passionate guy, who interacts and cares for everyone genuinely. I especially appreciated that he personally walked us through the various scenic points, making sure that we know where to go and what to see. He has a good sense of humor and cracks jokes to keep us entertained throughout the day trip. He also provides a good explanation of the history and background of each location, which adds flavor to the whole trip besides enjoying the view. Thank you very much Sherif! I had a great time with you and would strongly recommend this trip with go west tour!

Okay I've traveled quite a lot and used several different touring companies just in the past 5 years.
I've seen the Mayan temples of Mexico 'chichen itza tour', 'the grand canyon adventure' via Las Vegas Trips , the Statue of Liberty/Manhattan, New York double decker bus sight seeing package, the Hong Kong Street and ferry tour, the South Korea/Nami Island ferry and bus tour and the list goes on and on.
But I can honestly admit that I have never been so impressed with the experience I had with Go West Tours Ocean Road Sunset escapade of serene Southern Australia!
KATHERINE led us on our journey of the gorgeous coastal region of Australia starting from Melbourne and stopping at several beautiful locations along the coast.
We took a turn inland to enjoy the lush greenery of forest in the Land Down Under.
I captured so many fantastic pictures and created wonderful memories along the way.
I had the best holiday ever thanks to Katherine and Go West Tours! Thank you!
