Thanks to Brian and his wealth of knowledge my husband and I had a great tour with A tour with a difference (ATWOD). The tour begins a 7am and usually ends at 8pm. It can run a bit longer. We were picked up promptly at 7 at our hotel. Brian's small vehicle is how I choose this particular tour. I did not want to be packed on a bus for 12 hours with 20 or so people and have to wait at each stop for all guests to get back on the bus etc. The very comfortable Mercedes bus holds 10 I believe. The stops are well planned. Lunch and dinner very nice, good menu selection and Brian provides a morning stop for tea and biscuits which is a very nice touch. The scenic views are truly beautiful and Brian's narrative is most interesting. While touring we basically followed the same route as the other bus tours, however, the larger buses can't always get as close to the drop off area's as our smaller vehicle and with only 10 people getting on and off snapping photos etc the day really moves along. Never felt rushed and really enjoyed our meals talking with Brian and the small group of guest. Just an overall terrific tour. Our day ran a bit longer since we got off to a rather funny start which I won't mention here but to our friends from Spain...so glad you were with us....ATWOD runs many tours to different locations. Wish we had more time we would definitely booked more trip. An ocean road tour should not be missed if you are visiting Melbourne it is truly a beautiful way to spend the day. I do not advise driving on your own. The roads are narrow and very winding along cliffs etc. It can be a difficult drive especially if you want to take in the scenery. Leave the driving to ATWOD and enjoy. The only thing that could have made the trip better would have been to see kangaroo and koala's in the wild. Rain Forrest walk also much fun.
