My friend and I did this tour on our second day in Australia (both in our late 20s). We both had such a fantastic day and were lucky that the sunshine came out for us as well during the day. We had Tim (with long hair - there were two Tims!) as our guide and we couldn't have

Despite the fact that the weather wasn’t great, we enjoyed all the sights and the 12 Apostles. I think doing the reverse tour is much better, because you experience the 12 Apostles first and are therefore truly amazed by what the nature created. You also don’t have to spend 3

Had a good trip . Make no mistake it's a long long day . Lots of driving. The bus was too small I'll be honest which made the driving seem worse than it was but we saw some amazing things and if you get Craig as your driver you're really lucky . Great bloke
