Fantastic, from start to finish we have had such a great day. The early start is great if you want to avoid the traffic, catch the sunrise, and see some amazing views in the morning sun. The breakfast packs provided were a really nice touch, and the lunchtime food was also

Hi Paul and Natalie. Thanks for your great review. I am so happy you both had such a great day. We really snuck in a couple of times with brilliant timing for some sunshine didn't we? Some of the best lighting is Early and we sure had that. I enjoyed your company and thanks for your review. Cheers.

An all round great day trip. The small group and early start meant we missed the crowds and saw animals that would probably be under cover later in the day. Our driver guide was incredibly knowledgeable about the area and a mine of interesting information. There were many

Thanks Charles for your review. It is nice to note we are leaving a bit early at this time to make sure we catch the Kangaroos i the bush and with so few numbers along the Great Ocean Road we are getting back a bit earlier than usual. I am glad you enjoyed your extra time in Melbourne that day. Cheers :)

My husband and I were on the 2-day tour last week with guide Jeremy. He was very informative and explained the sights, history of the area, and knew all the spots to take us to see koalas and kangaroos. The hostel was very clean, and the fact that it was over a brewery was a

Hi Michelle, as I do not do 2 day tours it is clear this is posted to the wrong site. I will contact Trip Advisor but they often do not remove the reviews. Please try from your end. It is not fair that any business misses a review due to incorrect posting.

A good trip,but we felt it was a bit rushed. Stuart was a very good host and provided us with a very good commentary throughout the trip. We were also given a snack pack and water was available from a cool box during the trip. Lunch was lovely albeit a little early due to the

Thanks Christine, I appreciate your feedback. We have heaps of road to cover and try our best not to make anyone feel rushed. The Early start does make Lunch a bit early and if there were alternatives later I would use them. Our lunch is more than 4 hours from the start of the trip and most people are ready to have something to eat then. Overall I am glad you enjoyed your day out and Thanks for taking the time to review my tour.
