I'm heading to Australia for the first time in January and the Great Ocean Road is on my must-see list. I've been doing a bunch of research on the various tour groups that offer a one-day tour (which is what I want), but I'm still trying to figure out which is the best value and/or best experience. They all seem to make the same basic stops and tend to be in the $90-$135 range. I may be by myself on this part of the trip, or my friend my join me (TBD). I don't know if that makes a difference, but I love meeting new people!
I'm most excited about the actual water parts...the views, the chance to walk along the beach and take photos, etc. I would LOVE to see koalas, but I'm also planning on doing one of the Phillip Island Tours and I've heard some of those have a portion where you can get a photo with a koala (that may be my next post...unless anyone wants to chime in with those tour recommendations too!)
Basically, I'm hoping someone can shed some light on which tour company might be the best experience, or which I should stay away from. There's not a huge range in price, but I'd rather save the $40+ if I can! Any insight would be appreciated :)
Thank you and Happy Holidays!
