Great day out. Paul, our guide, was great fun, he dealt with the traffic issues really well still ensuring we had a good day answered all that was promised. Although he did torture us with the koala song! It is a very long day as sunset is not until 9pm in mid summer, so don’t expect to get back to your hotel until we’ll after midnight.

This trip was in short, fantastic. Loved the tour guide, DJ, and driver all in one, Emma, who made the experience all the more enjoyable with her tales and stories from yesteryears to today. The sights were good as was the entertainment. Would have loved to stop at the countryside for 15 minutes though. The sunset tour in itself is quite heavy, so bring a water bottle and some cash if you're planning to eat. other than that - 6 stars if there was an option.

I had an amazing day exploring Great Ocean Road on Saturday. Katherine was an amazing guide! Shes very funny and super knowledgeable on Australia's history, I learnt so much! Was so nice to get out of the city and see the beautiful sights. So glad I decided to do this quite last minute. Highly recommend :)
