We booked two tours through Go West; The Great Ocean Road with Scott, and Phillips Island with Ben. We couldn't have asked for more as both days were jam packed and gave us a glimpse of each location. Scott and Ben were both extremely knowledgeable and stand up tour guides. Thanks for showing us around. Would recommend Go West to... More

We got to see all of the key attractions along the road including the Koalas, Rainforest walk, Lunch is included, 12 Apostles, Razorback, Loch And Gorge, Gibson Steps. The best part about our tour was the Tour Guide: Michelle. She was awesome! Funny, informative, and not... More

We booked our Great Ocean tour via Viator and it's a really good app suggesting GoWest tours. GoWest is highly efficient & professional. We joined the trip guided by Scott. He's extremely helpful & friendly with lots of interaction during the entire trip! Amazing experience & it's probably the best choice choosing GoWest tours. Thanks Scott for your professional guide... More

I booked the Great Ocean Road day tour, as I was short of time and not willing to drive myself "on the wrong side", and it was the best decision! Everything, from free pick-up to breakfast, breaks, food, recommendations, tour guide (thanks so much Dave!) was perfect. Highly recommendable!!

Day tour with Go West. Bec was our tour guide. She was amazing! Was really in touch with all her tourists; knowing all the names by heart and always having small talks and chats with us. Which made us more comfortable the whole tour. Hightlight of course was the penguins!!!!!

We sincerely regret that these guests were indeed subject to a late pickup, for whihc we apologise. This was caused by a very new and inexperienced tour guide making an oversight when completing their pickup run. As the guide wasn't aware that they had missed these guests, we unfortunately were not in a position to advise them that they would... More

Went on the Phillip Island small day group last Saturday, had a great time everywhere we stopped off, animal sanctuary, winery, Nobbies, Cowes and, of course, the penguin parade! The small group made it all the better to get everywhere quicker and far more efficiently. Also beautiful weather all day made it so much better! Big shout out to tour... More
