However our experience can only be described as exillerating. The places we visited were amazing and when you have... More

That's what I read in a review here. And that's exactly what I experienced through my tours in Australia esp with this tour. Paul from Gowest exhibited consistently pleasantness throughout the long day tour! The scenic beauty of this road trip is fabulous only bettered by the pacific coast highway in California. The stop at torquay beach for tea and... More

Just came back from the Sunset Ocean Road tour and had an awesome time. Alex was our guide and he's just amazing; he made the trip so great and fun with his sense of humour and awesome personality.

The three one day trips with The Go West was one I cannot forget, especially being a solo traveller. The three experienced guides on each day - Philip Island with Rafael, The Great Oceans with Adam and The Grampians with Adam were equally distinguished from the other. They all were lively, friendly, jovial, knowleageable and had a great sense of... More

Cath was our guide for the day and was so energetic and personable. She offered interesting info about the yarra valley with a personalized touch, as she actually lives in the valley. She took care to personally remember everyone's name on the tour and find out about everyone's individual travels- truly a lovely touch. The wineries, cheese shop and chocolate... More

If you are staying in Melbourne and looking to do this trip, think carefully. If you like plenty of stop, starts this is the trip for you. If you are from the UK, and have driven plenty of coastal routes, this is basically the same ,a road next to the coastline. I lost track of how many times we stopped... More

Well, this review goes to show that you just can't please some people. Apparently, despite literally thousands of TripAdvisor reviewers describing the Great Ocean Road as "amazing, awesome" etc., as far this reviewer is concerned, "this is basically the same, a road next to coastline". It seems that according to the reviewer, the most negative thing about our tour was... More
