Great scenes that really cannot be missed when visiting Melbourne!...Ivan Brown, Canada, 04/Sep/2016
Very good driver and tour. The only thing that lets this company down is the quality of the transport. The bus was very old and uncomfortable for a long all day tour....Julian Jacobs, United Kingdom, 06/Feb/2014
Our driver Paul was an excellent driver / guide (watch out for flying Penguins if you are late back!) It was a long day, but it is needed if you want to see the Great Ocean Road...John H Connah, United Kingdom, 04/Jan/2014
