From Melbourne: Great Ocean Road Reverse Experience
- Duration: 1 day
This was my first tour with “Go West” tour. Such an experienced and brilliant company. Our tour guide Tim was great. He made all of us feel special and used our names. He asked from us to introduce ourselves so that we all know who are in our tour. Such a great idea. The great ocean road tour in Melbourne is a must. 12 Apostles is indeed mind blowingly beautiful. During the tour there were other beautiful sites too... every place that we have visited was worthwhile seeing. The small town that we have stopped for lunch was also very good. The fish restaurant had delicious fresh very affordably priced food. In the morning we also had coffee/tea and cake time. That was also well thought. After the tour “go west” follows up with the participants of the tour and their questions are so professionally written I can tell why the tour guide was very good. I totally recommend this tour with Go West.
Overall the general day was good but the main feature, 12 Apostles, was very disappointing because of cloud/mist cover. The principle of getting there early to avoid the crowds is great if you get to see the main attraction. I thought given the weather the trip could have been slightly re-arranged to ensure main feature was viewable. The other events on the day, Koalas was good but you seem to cram a great deal into the day not always getting enough time at the main features.
The tour was really good and the guide was professional and nice. He answered every questions during the tour and he spoke about many stories. The weather was just beautiful so we were able to enjoy this beautiful road. You must do the great ocean road !
Just a great day trip, even though the weather wasn't so good it had cleared up somewhat by the time we reached the 12 Apostles. Leonie, our driver & guide for the day was informative and fun
Clem was amazing! Great commentary, and we even saw the rare legendary black carnivorous snail in the rainforest.
