About Great Ocean Road Trips - Day Tours
I have spent over 15 years exploring the Great Ocean Road, surfing, camping, and adventuring, and I want you to experience the beauty of this stunning region in an authentic manner as possible - as I do. I tailor private road trips to your tastes, so you are never stuck on a bus, there are no other groups with you and no rigid time lines. Just us and the majestic Great Ocean Road!

Excellent day trip along the great ocean Road to the twelve Apostles. A long day but well worth it. GReat sight tours provide a very comfortable coach with excellent commentary from driver Con. Lots of stops for food, walls photos. Do take some warm clothes as its cold on the coast. Stunning views of Melbourne and very informative.

We had a great day today albeit a long one (13 hours). Daniel T, our driver and guide was excellent, courteous, informative, humorous and kept us to his timetable. It was great to see 2 koalas up as close as possible. No sighting of kangaroos today but not for the want of Daniel trying !! Stops were regular with highlights being the 12 apostles and Loch Ard gorge. A good day out. Elaine and David. Glasgow.

A long day! Action packed, informative and absolutely nothing was too much effort. Stephan, our guide took us a little off the beaten track to view the koala in its natural habitat. What an absolute delight to see, not just one, but seven koalas! This tour is a must on the bucket list. Kudos to Stephan and GoWest for another fabulous tour.

I don’t recommend this tour unless you are guaranteed a seat on the left side of the bus. We paid $172.50 (aus) per person. It was a rip-off. My husband and I took this tour and only had the option of a seat on the right side of the bus. The trip takes a couple hours to get out of Melbourne, and we stopped for 45 minutes at a strip mall (45 MINUTES)! The only view I had was the bus interior and a few ‘peek a boo’ glimpses of the Great Ocean Road. To make things worse, the driver had the shade partially down, so that further limited our sight. While the bus made 3 stops, the driver (Jeff) only allowed us 5 minutes per stop. Why 45 minutes at a strip mall yet only 15 minutes total on the Great Ocean Road? All I can figure is Grey Line gets money from the merchants. Of course, there was more to the tour, and I found Jeff to be informative. We went through the park (lovely old forest) and the Twelve Apostles. The views were good for both of these on both sides of the bus, but I was mentally over the tour by then and found limited enjoyment. The only real satisfaction came when this horrible 13 hour tour ended. Even then, it took far too long to get to our hotel - we should have bailed at the first stop on the tram.
