The Great Ocean Road private 1 day tour

By Melbourne Touring Company
Travelling on Victoria’s heritage-listed Great Ocean Road is one of the greatest road trips you can have in Australia. Our Great Ocean Road Private fully customiseable tour features amazing scenery, stories and wildlife in a leisurely drive that will have you gasping at every turn. This 244-kilometre-long stretch meanders through secret bays filled with rock pools, imposing sandstone cliffs, lush rain forests and deserted beaches. Dotted with quaint seaside towns, coastal walks and shipwrecks makes this region immensely popular. A highlight of the tour is visiting the Twelve Apostles, limestone karsts that rise majestically out of the water off the coast. We have a fleet of 9, 11 or 13 seater buses for your group and the price is for the driver/guide and vehicle, not per person. The larger the group, the better the value. The tour is fully customised and pick up is from your accommodation. We stop often and avoid the crowds, living up to our motto of ‘Let the others rush!’.

This was one of the longest days we had during our Aus & NZ trip but right from the moment we were picked up till we were dropped back to our hotel we did not feel bored or tired even once. We were a group of 6 including senior citizen parents but the vehicle provided to us was very comfortable. Moreover, John had been a perfect guide to us who kept us involved with some amazing facts about the place and australian culture. He was very friendly and accomodative. Great Ocean Road is definately drop dead gorgeous but our tour wouldn't have been prefect without having John as a guide with us.

We had a tour with John for our entire family of 4, and we all had a great time. He was knowledgeable, funny, reliable and very genuine. As the tour requires travelling over long distances, it was important that John is a safe and reliable driver and he proved to be one. We were really satisfied with him. He knew where to find wild animals which made the tour extra enjoyable. I would highly recommend John to my friends and will definitely come back soon!
