Touring the Great Ocean Road is a trip that should not be missed. If you can, book away from the big coaches that can’t get into the little look out points. And if you are lucky and wise enough to trade up to a smaller group tour, Ocean Road Tours is the #1 choice for the best tour possible. Stuart, the owner and guide, is a seasoned tour operator and Australian. He is kind, enthusiastic, fun and knowledgeable about Australia, in general, and the Great Ocean Road, specifically. Further, he goes out earlier than any other tour, so he beats the crowds, finds the best viewing spots that only his excellent vehicle can get into and peppers the tour with Koala and Kangaroo stops, bird visits, hikes and an incredible lunch in a private country café. With the small group he limits the tour (8) to and the individual attention he gives everyone, it is as close to a private tour as you can get, without the private tour price. Stuart exceeded our high expectations by miles. Don’t even think of using another company. Ocean Road Tours and Stuart are simply the best value and time to be had on the Great Ocean Road!
