Great Ocean Road Tour was beautiful!
Went on the Great Ocean Road tour in early November 2018 with a group of friends and we had Leonie as our tour guide, who was totally awesome at her job because she was approachable, knowledgeable, and a good driver - thanks Leonie!

We got picked up in the Melbourne CBD area (close to where our Airbnb was) because there was multiple pick-up options available and made our way to our first stop for some morning tea/coffee/cakes in Torquay, before continuing on to multiple other stops. We saw and learned about some previous bush fires, got pictures with the Great Ocean Road arc sign and saw some wild (but sleeping!) koalas. We had lunch in Apollo Bay at a Thai cuisine restaurant and there was also a gelato shop near there with vegemite flavoured gelato which one of my friends ended up getting! There was a quick nature hike at the Maits Rest Rainforest area, which was beautiful and so refreshing.
But my favourite was by far the Loch Ard Gorge, which was one of the last stops we made. A little bit better than the more famed Twelve Apostles Park even! (Partly because the Twelve Apostles Park was also much more crowded than the Loch Ard Gorge lol) but Leonie also shared lots of interesting facts and was good at keeping the tour on time. We ended the day with a stop in Colac for dinner, before continuing on to drive back to Melbourne.

I would definitely recommend this tour, but do keep in mind that part of the reason it's a full day tour is because there is a decent amount of travelling time involved. In the beginning of the day, it's not as noticeable because there are more stops, so it doesn't feel like too much. But at the same time, there does need to be time at the end of the day to drive all the way back. Although this wasn't really a problem for our group, as we had enough bathroom breaks in between the driving and we were actually able to sleep during the drive.

Grampians with Go West
The day started with a warm welcome from our amazing tour guide Bryce. He has a great sense of humour and a funny taste of music. He has a track for right about every occasion. The rain, the road, kangaroos, and many more. He also has a wide knowledge about Melbourne and the Grampians itself. First we had morning tea in Ballarat where we can have a sip of hot tea, coffee, or hot chocolate and some bread to start of the day. After that we got a little insight on the history of Melbourne on the way to Halls Gap. After the two hour journey we took a quick walk to see a small but beautiful waterfall. After the walk we got back to Halls Gap to take a quick bite. After lunch we made our way to what Bryce called "The Grand Canyon". Not exactly the Grand Canyon itself but the view with their rock formations were jaw-droppingly spectacular. After the Canyon we went to a lookout spot then to the McKenzie Waterfalls. The white curtain of water was like a view from the heavens. Although the weather was not on our side that time, we still had an amazing experience there. After that we went to another lookout spot. With all the fog and mist we could not see much but i could imagine the view on top of the mountain. Trees stretching out into the valleys and the light blue sky highlighting the bright green tree tops. From there we then went back down to Halls Gap to look for some hopping friends. There were some but not a lot. One still can get their pictures though. That was our day in the Grampians before heading back to Melbourne. I personally enjoyed the tour, how the tour guide lead us. Even though we had to battle some showers and downpours Bryce made this tour enjoyable.

Great Ocean Road Tour
Started our first full day in Melbourne on a wonderful note. Due to my motion sickness, I dreaded bus tours even after popping some medicine but this tour had multiple stops which kept my motion sickness in check. Also, Yazmin was our guide for our Great Ocean Road tour and I can say she's the best guide I have ever met! Yazmin made the journey enjoyable with her cheerful personality, rousing us up from our naps with her cute songs. She's a good DJ too.

Awesome tour- highly recommended if you enjoy sceneries
Our tour started off with a lively and warm greeting from the guide , Mel. She has a lot of energy and provided us with information and history on the place we visit. Its a great experience walking at the Grampians and we also had a few spectacular scenic stops for lookouts. We especially enjoyed the outdoor lunch in the vicinity of Grampians and being up close and personal with the wild kangaroos and cockatoos nearby.

Grampians Wonderland!
Just returned from a wonderful day in the Grampians with Jordan.
He is a very knowledgeable and friendly guide and I would recommend this trip to anyone.
The weather and scenery were brilliant (maybe a little too hot!) and we got to see Emus and Kangaroos during the trip.
It's an exhausting day but well worth it.
