Why share the Great Ocean Road with 25, 35 or 55 people when you can travel with a Small Group (8), for a Day Tour of the Iconic Great Ocean Road. You depart at 6 am to be ahead of the other tour groups and HAVE MOST LOOKOUTS ALONE. This is almost like a private tour.Our small group allows more options and flexibility and we do extra photo stops as well. You see all of the Great Ocean Road sights between Torquay and the 12 Apostles and Loch Ard Gorge including Memorial Archway, Lorne and more. You see Kangaroos and Koalas in the wild, You will see the best views of the Great Ocean Road, her stunning beaches and Rugged Coastlines. You will get a Breakfast/Snack pack and a selection of Home Cooked meals for Lunch. We provide a fun and informed commentary, including Indigenous and European Histories and we know when to be quiet. Included are ; Fresh Cold Water, USB Chargers, WiFi, Air-conditioned Bus. Melbourne City, Southbank, Dockland pick ups. Visit our web site for full details.
