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.

I would not change any part of the tour it was wonderful with the right amount of stops and not to mention all the great food and wine that we enjoyed along the way and meet some wonderful people from all parts of the world.
Definitely a must-go if you're in Melbourne and while you're at it, ask for Scott!!!
