    Just got back from the 3 day tour of the Great ocean road and the grampians. I would definitely not recommend doing any less than this as the 2 day tour missed out on a great hike in the grampians. Our tour guide Peter was great with loads of knowledge and a very chilled vibe so that it didn’t feel like we were on a school trip. Some bits of the tour are a bit rushed but that’s to be expected on such a quick turn around. I would definitely recommend this tour !!

    Nearing the end of our 3 day Great Ocean Road Trip and it has been the best 2 days! The itinerary is well organised and very carefully planned. The stops along the way are magnificent. There really is no better way to see all the sights along the Great Ocean Road and to experience The Grampians other than take this tour. It's a great way to meet people too! Our tour guide Darren has been the best bit about this trip. He takes such great care in his work and really wants everyone to have such a great time. His voice is very calming on the microphone, perfect if you're in the middle of taking a nap on the bus. Most of all, I love all his nuggets of information. He is very informative and obviously has extensive knowledge on the geography of the area, plant life, animal life, indigenous people and local knowledge too. He makes the tour very engaging! I also appreciate the effort he puts in to organise breakfast/lunch/ dinner. A++ for Darren!!

    All the places along the Great Ocean Road including the 12 Apostles and the Grampians itself, the views were breathtaking, and it was a good break away from the busy city life. I would recommend going for the 3 days 2 night as it makes your overall trip worthwhile, Special shout out to my guide - Guy, very knowledgeable about the history and had lots of fascinating stories to share that made the journey on the road more enjoyable. Great opportunity to meet new people along the way as well.

    If you love bone-jarring, dirty buses, and not being given enough time to enjoy sights that are truly breath-taking, this is the trip for you. Paying 34 for a room upgrade the first night was okay. Being upgraded without being asked the second night might have been okay if they had mentioned ahead of time that it was going to cost me an extra 100 for an uncomfortable room and with shower temps that ranged quickly from comfortable to frigid with no warning. Can't say I was thrilled about being dropped off in sweltering heat several blocks short of the previously-agreed upon location either. Anyway, in hindsight, I would have rented a car or selected a different tour company.
