I did this tour with my mom. Was not enthused by a tour that starts at 6 am, because I am not a morning person. I did this tour with my mom. Was not enthused by a tour that starts at 6 am, because I am not a morning person. It was so worth it. One of the best tours I have every been on. Highlight of our trip to Australia. Breakfast was sufficient. Lunch was delicious and was in a nice, intimate setting. We made stops to see koalas and other animals and took the most beautiful pics of the 12 Apostles. Stuart was a fountain of information. He sure knows his hometown and history. Our tour group was fun and friendly. I really appreciated having a smaller, more intimate group. All in all, we are glad we took this tour. We weren’t sure if we could do the Great Ocean Road justice in such a short timeframe, but we were pleasantly surprised at how much we managed to cover.

The Highlight of our holiday
Could not have expected a better experience. The early departure is worth every minute of lost sleep. We returned to Melbourne at 16:00 and were still able to make the best of a Melbourne afternoon. We missed the crowds and traffic too. The itinerary was perfect and Stuart was an amazing guide; friendly and extremely knowledgeable. I challenge you to challenge his knowledge 🙂 Highly recommended.

This is amazing. Tour was perfectly organized, from A to Z. Everything was perfect, starting from pick up, through small bus, drinks and stops. Stuart, the guide, was the best part of the trip, together with the views. Always happy to help, providing lots of information. Snack box, unlimited water and delicious lunch is what is included. Highly recommended! Agata, Poland April 2019
5+ Stars for this Day Tour
TripAdvisor review: Great Ocean Road Small Group (8) Day Tour With Early Departure and Early Return We had a great day with Stewart on the Great Ocean Road day tour. At a very early pickup of 5:45 Stewart assured us it would be worth it to beat the crowds – and he was right. We were given a healthy snack bag to enjoy through the day. Came upon a mob of kangaroos in an open field, then drove down a gravel road to see a few up close. The drive down the Surf Coast was spectacular with stops at lookout points along the way to ourselves. Stopped for lunch at a little cafe and had an Aussie pie and salad that was delicious. Next was a stop on the roadside to see a koala up in a tree, then on to the Twelve Apostles. Even though the rain was moving in the view was amazing. Last stop was Loch Ard Gorge where we had a nice walk and another spectacular view. Back to Melbourne after a day l’ll remember for a lifetime. Thanks Stewart! BE656 Feb 2019
Fabulous Tour worth 6 stars
TripAdvisor review: Great Ocean Road Small Group (8) Day Tour With Early Departure and Early Return A most enjoyable day out with a company that more than delivers what is promised . The early start gets you ahead of the crowd , this enabled us to see Kangaroos and a Koala in their natural habitat . The scenery was sensational and the 12 apostles and various viewing points where excellent . Lunch was very enjoyable the pie was excellent and also the burgers and lighter options looked very good . Stuart gave lots of interesting information but also allowed times of quiet just to soak up the scenery . It may cost a little more than other tours, but the small number of people ( max 8) means a more enjoyable experience. Would strongly recommended Ocean Road Tours . Simon Feb 2019
This tour was my favorite
All I can say is WOW! This tour was my favorite of all the tours I did during my 2 weeks in Australia. Stu is the consummate guide and provides for every want and need. I picked this tour because it was small and started early- which meant we avoided the big tours and had great lighting for pictures. Thank you, Stu. It was the most amazing day. Paula Feb 2019
Wonderful experience made complete with an outstanding guide

Perfect way to see the Great Ocean Road and 12 Apostles
Touring the Great Ocean Road and seeing the breathtaking scenery of this area is one of those experiences that you’ll likely never forget. It is just beautiful. And Stuart and his company the Great Ocean Road Tour is the perfect way to see it. Instead of being crammed into a crowded tour bus, this is a small group tour that allows more flexibility and enriches the experience. Stuart is the perfect guide. He balances a warm welcome and friendliness with quiet time. He is superbly knowledgeable about everything from World War I history, natural history, and kangaroo reproduction. The tour starts early to avoid the crowds, the van is extremely comfortable and Stuart provides a welcomed breakfast snack. We pass by the crowded tourists stop and have a lovely lunch at a local restaurant with great views. And of course, there are the 12 Apostles. We had a picture perfect day and could not have asked for a better experience or better service from Stuart. THANK YOU! E-Lee_07 Nov 2018
Great day out on the Great Ocean Road!!
This Tour was expertly planned and delivered. Everything was well thought out; from handing out snack packs & chilled water to regular scheduled toilet breaks. Lunch included a wide range of hot/cold, meat/vegetarian choices. Our fish & chips (blue grenadier) was locally sourced, ready on arrival & delicious!
Our Guide was so professional and pumped for the day ahead and his extensive knowledge about Australia lifestyle, culture & history was amazingly insightful!
As for the lookouts, they were sensational! We started off spotting some wild kangaroos and koalas. We had plenty of time to observe each stop of the Great Ocean Road and take a snapshot or two or ten! We finished with a bonus secret location for additional picture taking.
We thank you for making our trip of a lifetime so awesome! Keep up the amazing work!

Simply the best ; This tour exceeded our expectations. On our visit to Melbourne my daughter and I decided to take the ocean road tour. Up early and on the road early, meant we got a head start before other tour operators. Stuart our guide and driver was extremely knowledgeable and made the trip not only informative but very interesting. Stuart was very prepared and had thought of everything from the hand sanitizer to the phone charging dock on the bus. It was a fun trip and we thoroughly enjoyed it from start to finish. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone wanting a smaller personalized trip with a great lunch and terrific guide and driver. Thanks Stuart for creating a very memorable memory.Hokeypokeysue July 2018
