About
Touring the Great Ocean Road is one of the most scenic drives in Australia. The road itself is listed by the Australian National Heritage and is rich with amazing sights, landmarks, and history – including the famous Twelve Apostles limestone formations. On this tour, we drive the road in the opposite direction, starting from the south-west coast and working back, which allows us to avoid the crowds from other tour buses, and we get the boring part of the drive out of the way first, saving the best of the Great Ocean Road to last. A two-day tour means we can take our time along the way, so that you will never feel rushed. The only timeline we have is to ensure we arrive on time at the Twelve Apostles for sunset. This tour is suited to millennial's, 18-to-Thirtysomethings and is jam packed with amazing destinations and activities.

Great Ocean Road 1 night - 2 days
Feb 2020
Was hesitating whether to rent a car or book a tour and glad I booked a tour! The guide was really nice and informative, showed us things we would never have seen otherwise.

Geared towards the younger crowd, you get to stay in a real cool hostel but bear in mind that it's a mixed dorm with 8 other people.

Really glad I did this tour, didn't feel rushed :)

Best way to see the Great Ocean Road
Mar 2020
Our two day tour allowed us to take our time exploring the entire length of the great ocean road, to stay at the only hostel in Australia with its own brewery and to bond as a group. Our tour was the last one before operations stopped due to Coronavirus restrictions. Jeremy was an excellent guide throughout, keeping the mood light and entertaining despite the impending sense of doom some of us were facing with our travel plans changing. We couldn't get near the viewpoint for the 12 apostles due to crowd restrictions but it didn't ruin the mood for a second. Jeremy went the extra mile to ensure we go to see as much as possible along the route, including some extra stops just for us! Loved it and really hope these guys can get the tours up and running again soon!

Best Great Ocean Road Tour You Can Do!
Mar 2020 • Business
It was a awesome tour even in times of Covid-19. Jeremy our tour guide was great he helped us so much around the tour with everything that’s going on. Furthermore he is a very, very good photographer. It was a nice last tour with cool people. So go with RideTours when everything is going back to normal and support them. Thank you RideTours and Jeremy.

Great Ocean Road 2 day tour - Fantastic!!!!
Mar 2020 • Solo
Had a fantastic time on the 2 day great ocean road tour, I can’t recommend it enough! Jeremy was a fantastic tour guide, knowledgeable, funny and inclusive. We saw all the highlights of the great ocean road and with so much to see so pleased did it over two days. The hostel, and the food, wine & company there made the trip too, thank you :)

Great Ocean 'Grocean' 2 day tour
Mar 2020 • Friends
Can't begin to express how much fun we had on this trip. If you're looking for a more personal Great Ocean Road adventure to escape the hustle and bustle of Melbourne then Ride Tours is the one for you. Jeremy was so lovely and a brilliant tour guide. He was informative, fun and friendly. The stop over hostel in Port Campbell was very good aswell, suoer comfy beds! Had the best time and met some lovely people aswell. Would highly reccommend.

Jezza the cous cous king.

Oh and thank you for introducing us to tim tams!

Keep up the good work,

Great Ocean Road 'Grocean' Two Day Tour
Mar 2020
Simply put, I embarked on this trip as a solo traveller with the view to exploring the Great Ocean Road. However, the whole experience far and above exceeded all my expectations. Jeremy our tour guide kept us entertained, imparting a wide breadth of knowledge as we travelled through the various towns, viewpoints and beaches. In addition, we learned much about the local history, geographical formations and flora and fauna, stopping off to meet and greet koalas, emus, kangaroos and an array of tropical birds along our travels. On the first evening, we arrived in the beautiful Port Campbell and enjoyed a delicious meal before heading to see the majestic Twelve Apostles in all their glory by sunset. Another personal highlight was visiting the spectacular Erskine Falls, a cascading waterfall with two viewpoints in the rainforest of the Great Otway National Park.
Overall, it was a thoroughly enjoyable and memorable trip- perfect for anyone looking to detach from the hustle and bustle of Melbourne city for a few days. I would highly recommend to anyone looking to discover the Great Ocean Road in a relaxed fashion with some Tim Tams and laughs along the way! Five stars :)

Amazing tour from start to finish!!!
Could not recommend this tour enough, to start Jeremy our guide was great entertainment and made everyone feel comfortable instantly. I learnt so much about the Great Ocean Road and surrounding areas (including my phone camera due to his photography knowledge) The hostel was very good and I can’t knock Jeremys cooking one bit.

If you’re looking for a smaller and more personal experience, seeing everything from Koalas to Kangaroos then this tour is 100% for you.

The best way to see the great ocean road
Mar 2020 • Couples
I’ve done this trip twice now with ride tours, once as a backpacker In 2012 on my own and this time as 31 year old with my Partner and I can honestly say if you want to see the great ocean road there is no better way than to do it with these guys.

The bus was nice, comfy and most importantly very clean, the accommodation is probably the nicest hostel you will ever stay in and trip is operates at a nice relaxed pace.

Jeremy are tour guide was brilliant and kept us entertained with his excellent knowledge of the area, he’s not a bad cook either so the evening dinner was surprisingly tasty.

Look no further than guys if you want to see this beautiful part of the world!!!
