We had an amazing day, despite all kind of weather, rain at the start and then sun at the end on the most scenic route. Lucy our guide made the day, funny, entertaining and full of knowledge about everything. Thank you Lucy for a wonderful day. And we had good company from other participants on the trip, it was nice that the bus was not so big.

Excellent trip that was informative and covered all the bases of the great ocean road. Cloe was our guide and she looked after us really well; driving the bus, providing commentary and giving us great recommendations for food during the trip. She even explained the right turn hook in Melbourne city; a peculiar piece of road craft I’ve never seen before in any other city.
