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

What a magical day with our totally awesome guide Paul G. He picked everybody up at their hotels which provided me with a mini tour of downtown Melbourne. Paul was very knowledgeable about the various stops on the great ocean road. We even had a helicopter ride over the twelve apostles. Tour was limited to 25 people. Great day at... More

I went to the Penguin Parade on Phillip Island with Go West tours and had an incredible time. For anyone who is not from Australia, a really cool experience is getting to feed Kangaroos and Wallabies at the Moonlit Sanctuary. The winery was a great way to break up the day and visiting the Nobbies was also great. There was... More

We toured with bec from go west tours company. Had gone to see philip island, wine/cheese tasting and moonlight park. Bec is very organized and kept us entertained during our ride in the bus. She also did a great job explaining history of Melbourne, animals that we are seeing for the night, and what to expect during the tour. We... More

Did the great ocean road tour on Feb, 17th with Adam as a guide and it was amazing ! Adam is more than a guide, he is an absolute gentleman, anchor and OZ DJ. Along with telling the good stories that accompany the trip, he was so friendly and helpful for whatever we would need. And the wonderful landscapes and... More
