Best Ocean Road Tour
, Feb 2020
This is an excellent, comprehensive tour of the Great Ocean Road. Our guide Walter was funny and informative and showed us all the main sights. The departure times mean you see everything before other tours arrive and the over night stay at Apollo Bay is a great break from all the sightseeing.

Very Enjoyable 2-Day Great Ocean Road Tour
, Feb 2020
Excellent experience. Walter, owner of the “Around And About” tour, was our driver and guide, who did an excellent job of showing and explaining the wonderful sites along the way. We were glad we also had plenty of opportunities, at the many stops, to get out, take photos, and do some nice 20-30-minute walks at many of the stops. Sites included coastal scenery, waterfalls, seeing kangaroos and Koalas, beach areas, etc. The youth hostel in Apollo Bay was nice, clean, no problem to use the community bath down the hall. Dinner at the Great Ocean Road Brewhouse in Apollo Bay was a positively-memorable experience, including the beer and kangaroo steak. We appreciated Walter’s attentiveness. An entirely pleasant trip.
You won’t beat this tour!

We did this tour during it’s busy season (Christmas). Walter was our guide and although he insisted upon starting earlier (we left St Paul’s at 5:45am when the stated departure was at 6:30) we understood why once on The GOR. The traffic was terrible and we seemed to be one step ahead everywhere - as we were leaving each stop, cars and buses would come piling in. This meant we had most stops to ourselves and had ample time at each stop. Walter was very kind and considerate and made our tour informative and fun. We highly recommend this tour. It could not have been better.

Very beautiful trip. I highly recommend it to everybody. In our case the first day was all sunny while the second was rainy. In both cases, however we enjoyed the days. Our guide was also very knowledgeable. The sceneries were out of this world and certainly not what we are used to see in our home country.

Wonderful! Much better being in a small group - not so much time wasting waiting for fellow passengers getting on and off which happens on a coach. Walter was great, very knowledgable and fun. Would definitely recommend.

Loved this tour - the scenery speaks for itself and the small group tour maximised the time and interaction with our driver. Couple of small criticisms: Would have appreciated a more substantial breakfast/morning tea on first morning - bikkies and an apple at around 8am didn't quite fit the bill after being collected from hotel at around 6am. No facilities for breakfast at 5am when staying in hotel so would have been more than happy to pay for own brekky at first stop. Accommodation at backpackers hotel in Apollo Bay was also low standard - paid for unit which was pretty grubby - perhaps other options could be offered. Despite these minor complaints - thoroughly enjoyed the tour and the GOR is as spectacular as everyone says it is.

This tour was amazing! It was exactly as advertised and we couldn't have been more happy. Walter, our guide and driver, was excellent- very knowledgeable and sensitive to our interests. If you want to experience the natural beauty of this part of the world in depth, take this tour!
