I guess you cannot go wrong by joining a Great Ocean Road tour. The day was long, but the views were worth it! Our guide James was excellent!

Although it’s quite a long freeway time from Brisbane, it was worth it. The beach road on the island was absolutely amazing. Rainforest and then Lake Mackenzie were nice to see. The lake has a really nice and pretty quiet beach on the left. Trip might be expensive compared to other offers, but had 4WD all time.

Loved the small group size and our guide, Bec was amazing, not only for her knowledge but she's got a great sense of humour too. We got lucky with the weather and the sunset over the apostles put on a spectacular show

Scott is a very positive, enthusiastic and charismatic guide, and pays special attention to the needs of this customers. It is quite hard work to both drive for so long I think it was 7 hours of driving and give a tour in a positive and entertaining way. The tour itself was a nice combination of country's and ANZAC history with wildlife observation coala and cacadu and landscape admiration rainforest, with 12 apostles and Loch Ard gorge being the absolute highlights!

This was an excellent tour! Our tour driver, Jon was very knowledgeable and had lots of funny stories. It is a full day, but well worth it. The Twelve Apostles Rock formation are something to see. We saw a couple of koalas sleeping in the trees which was a fun sight! Also, Jon gave us an added bonus, a quick walk through a rain forest! The weather was a little iffy but we still made the best of it!! Great day!!

We all had an amazing day. Despite the weather not coming to the party our guide Phil made up for it, he was amazing, he was funny, very entertaining and full of knowledge about all the different areas we traveled along the whole trip. We never felt rushed at any stage so felt we got to enjoy the whole experience and had ample of opportunity to take lots of photos. The trip exceeded our expectations. Janice and Paula

This tour was amazing! We are very happy to book it. Our tour guide Adam was very entertaining. He taught us a lot about the history of australia and the Places we passed thru the ocean road. I would recommend go west tours to my friends and family.

Great tour, great guide, great scenery. Seeing koalas in the wild int he forest was just as amazing as the Twelve Apostles

Our tour conducted by Peter was fabulous. We had just been stranded for two days on a broken cruise ship and was not enjoying our once in a lifetime vacation, that is until we took this tour. It totally made our trip. We had to get up early the next day for a 14 hour flight, but it was well worth it. I totally recommend this tour and commend Peter for a great experience. Tim and Jolande

It is the most enjoyable tour we've ever had in Melbourne. The scenery of Twelve Apostles is breathtaking especially during sunset. We are glad to have Beck as our tour guide! She has a very pleasant character and has shared with us lots of interesting local insights along the Great Ocean Road. We would definitely recommend this tour to my friends!

Great views. I went on 081216. But be prepared for the strong wind and cold weather.

Wonderful time and a great guide! It's a long day but well worth it. By taking this tour, you miss the crowds and we had a small group vs. a huge bus full of people which made it even more enjoyable.

Wonderful tour. If you can't take 2 days to drive the GOR on your own, this 14 hour tour is excellent. Jon, of Go West Tours, was an excellent guide, very knowledgeable and personable. And, the scenery is spectacular.
• Submitted 07 Dec 2016
The Great Ocean Road Sunset Tour offers excellent value in an engaging 12 hour journey. This journey, I would recommend to any adventurer, traveler or dabbler in oceanic expeditions to venture. The mode of transport is a comfortable, well equipped van that makes regular stops, as well as providing a courteous, knowledgeable tour guide with an endless capacity to field and answer any questions asked. All in all, it was a wonderful day of scenic joy that wasn't dampened by overcast weather. The apostles, as a natural wonder, are a must see for any tourist.
• Submitted 03 Nov 2016
It was a wonderful day with a very knowledgeable and pleasant guide/driver. Despite a lot of driving in wonderful countryside, we had several stops and could spend a few hours in total walking and enjoying the incredible scenes of the Coast, the Twelve Apostles, and the glorious temperate rain forrest. A truly exceptional experience.
