We took this tour on February 15th 2017. Was to see Great Ocean Road the other way around - the first stop was Twelve Apostles and then back to Melbourne. Everything was brilliant, including the weather. Paul was not just a guide but an entertainer as well. I can recommend this tour to everyone.

We wanted to see the Great Ocean Road, but didn't want to spend the day driving. Took this trip and had Paul as our guide. Knowledgeable guide/owner who really cares about delivering a good day & took time to get to know his clients. Enjoyed hearing the history and geography - gave us a better appreciation for where we were... More

We took the one day Great Ocean Tour with Rob as our guide. He was informative, lively, friendly, and entertaining. The tour was fantastic! The van was very comfortable and the small group made it very personable. We highly recommend it.

We had a great day yesterday with our tour guide Shane. He was very friendly and thoughtful. He was informative and everything was very well organised. We enjoyed the small group and comfort of the vehicle. We had several stops along the road with wonderful views! We saw many koalas and really enjoyed the rainforest walk through beautiful ferns.

I absolutely loved the tour of the Great Ocean Road. Weather turned out to be perfect, even though the forecast was bleak. The bus was much smaller than a coach which turned out to be quite nice and I preferred it heavily to the coach tours I took. The tour guide Rob was a hell of a guy, super interesting... More

Smaller, newer Mercedes van held 11 plus driver. Smaller van means quick off/on at our various stops and there were many, so the ride was informative, interesting and relaxing. Our driver, Shane, was pleasant, informed and very accommodating. We even had an infant and 2 year old and the 14 hours ride was still a pleasure. If you want to... More

The bus only had 11 passenger seats so we were able to stop at places where larger buses couldn't. The seats were very comfortable and Rob, the guide was enthusiastic, helpful and knowledgeable. The restaurant meals were very good. The koalas, king parrots and temperate rainforest were an added bonus.

Had a fantastic day discovering the Great Ocean Road. The bus was very comfortable and only seats 10 so we could see all the views with ease. Our guide Darryl was superb, very knowledgeable and interesting and could not do enough to make our journey as comfortable as possible. The stops along the way were perfect with plenty of photo...

Great day out, doing it in reverse with only a small amount of people meant we were at times the only ones there. The beaches to our selves and perfect set up for great pictures, and as I say the guide Stacy made our day very informative and great fun.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
