A wonderful day of exploration

Our guide Tim made an excellent day out for us. While driving between several different sites on the Great Ocean Road he weaved a most insightful and inspiring tale of Australian heritage. Seeing the 12 Apostles was breathtaking. For meal breaks, Tim provided several options and we never felt pressured into using any particular venue. We arrived back into central Melbourne after 9pm at the end of a superb trip.

The whole trip was generally enjoyable. Would recommend that the bush walk to view the underwhelming cascade to be removed to allow more time for lunch and other sightseeing places instead.

Stunning views! This was a great tour. We were able to see so many places in a short amount of time (maximizing our trip). Admittedly, it felt a bit rushed (including bathroom stops), but our driver, Sylvain was very accommodating.
