Great sights with an excellent guide
We took a tour in January 2020. Our guide was excellent and had perfect timing which allowed us to beat the crowds. There are quite a few stops but each was unique. Twelve Apostles were excellent. And we loved the quiet and majesty of the rainforest. Also alee saw quite a few koalas. Guide was fun, relaxed and very informative. We took another tour to Philip Island with the same company and with the same guide and head another five star experience. All together great fun, would definitely recommend. Loved the van with the little penguins ;-)

Compact Trip, Great Value

If you don't have much time at hand and would still like to see it all, this trip is for you. Mike C went above and beyond to make our tour memorable and to give us an insight on the places we saw. He was cheerful, upbeat and that translated into the atmosphere on the bus. It will be an intense day, so make sure to go well-rested. There's plenty of opportunity to get off the bus and take photos or just soak in the landscape. We were lucky enough to even see a kangaroo on our way back!

Incredible, must see experience!
Mar 2020
Yasmin from Go-West, was the perfect guide for the long- but totally worthwhile day! Every stop was better than the last, and so happy that we took this tour. Of all the tours we took in Australia, this day with Yasmin was the best. The sights were so beautiful, but it was great to see how much she enjoyed sharing each spot- it was like she was showing off her babies! I felt she made a connection with everyone on the tour, which made this long day, so much more enjoyable. There was a lot of stops, but many were so different than the last, it never got boring. This seemed like a big commitment in time, but so happy that we did this one. Totally worth it- ask for the best!

Mel C was THE best tour guide and completely made the trip....and it's a long ride so for her to keep us all entertained, educated about her home country and having fun is something special! I met a lot of great fellow tourist on my ride that I remain in contact with and ran into some locals to have lunch with at our lunch stop for a Sausage Roll and a Scallop Pie. Needless to bring up the great views on this trip, even with some fog in the air it was gorgeous! Thanks for an awesome day Go West Tours!

This is an excellent tour. Yes it is a lot of ground to cover in a day but we felt we saw enough to be satisfied. We made many stops and were on a schedule but not rushed. Very informative and a beautiful area. Liked the small group. Would definitely do again.

Wow, it's really nice to receive a review from "Melbourne571". We don't get many locals on our tours, so it's really good to know that someone form our own locale enjoyed their journey with us so much. We'll be sure to pass your feedback on to the remarkable Cloe & we know that it will make her day. Thanks again for joining us in visiting the Great Ocean Road. We hope you might drop in on one of our other destinations some time soon!

Terrific Great Ocean Road Trip
Feb 2020 • Solo
Great scenery of the Great Ocean Road, the Australian bushland, and an exceptional guide Leonie! She surprised us with some morning coffee and tea and brought in all the necessities. She was very considerate towards my but allergy and made sure she had snacks that were for everyone's needs. Gave interesting facts of the tour I would have not known otherwise and easy to have conversations with!

The views of the 12 Apostles were breathtaking, the Otway National Park was beautiful, and we were very fortunate to spot some wild koalas! Can easily recommend this tour to anyone!
