Great Ocean Road Tour and more!!

What a fantastic time we had on this tour! We were part of a small group of 6 people (we were great friends by the end the tour) and this made for such a personal feel and yet sociable all at the same time.

Nothing was too much trouble for our guide Steve who never tired of making impromptu stops at our request so we could photograph Kangaroo and other native wildlife. We loved the Shipwreck Coast and we never felt rushed along.

There was always time to walk to each of the lookouts and really capture the scenery. Meal inclusions were really good quality and in diverse settings, my personal favourite was the platter lunch at the winery on the last day.

When we booked this tour we wondered whether 4 days was a little too long, but there’s such a diverse range of activities and inclusions that the time absolutely flew and it was over before we knew it. All in all we felt this tour offered great value for money and we would recommend to all.

My Australian friend and I had been desperately looking for a guided tour along the Great Ocean Road with some comfort, as we didn’t want to join one of these backpacker tours offered by all other tour operators. In the end I found this one in the catalog of a large German travel company, and we booked it. We were not disappointed. Accommodation, cafés and restaurants were hand-picked and of excellent quality. The tour is very carefully designed and offers a great mix of scenic highlights, nature and cultural experiences. Steve, our guide, did everything to make the tour a great experience for everyone in our small group of four. He’s a very competent guide who knows South Australia like the back of his hand and has many interesting stories to tell. He looked after us so well and was good company. Thanks for a memorable time, Steve! VERY GOOD. EXCELLENT.

The Great Ocean Road & Beyond tour is a fantastic experience!

The tour included many highlights between Melbourne and Adelaide. I thoroughly enjoyed the scenery, and informative commentary from Steve, a gem of a guide!

I highly recommend to anyone wanting to sit back, relax and enjoy a hassle free 4 days. AAA+++

We have just returned from the Great Ocean Road Melbourne to Adelaide tour. We were very pleased to have found this tour as we had been looking for something that would offer a leisure tour with a small group as we did not want to rush the sightseeing. The mini coach was very comfortable with big windows to see all the beautiful scenery along the great ocean road and the rest of the journey. Steve our tour guide was friendly and very knowledgeable about all the places we visited and looked after us very well. I can honestly say we loved everything about this tour. All the places we visited were very interesting and we met some lovely people. The accommodation at each of the 3 places we stopped for the night was excellent. The different restaurants we stopped at for breakfast and lunch & dinner were very good. We would recommend this tour to everyone. You will see and get everything the brochure has offered and more.
Thank you Dallas and Nikki from tours “See Adelaide and Beyond” for putting together such a great tour.

The Great Ocean Road was a must for my wife and I, my wife trawled through numerous sites to find the right one for us. Great ocean road and beyond was perfect. Steve the driver/ guide was excellent and knowledgeable, the scenery was stunning and the accommodation every night was brilliant. I would definitely recommend these guy's.

I was visiting friends in Adelaide from the UK and as my first visit to Australia wanted to fit in as much as possible. I decided to fly into Melbourne, have a couple of days sightseeing and then take this tour on route to Adelaide. What an amazing time I had!! There were 7 of us in total and by the time we reached the start of the Ocean Road we were already beginning to feel relaxed and enjoy a lovely atmosphere on the bus. I loved the Ship-Wreck Coast and the 12 Apostles and Lock Ard Gorge where we went down onto the beach. We also went back to the 12 Apostles on the morning of the 2nd day and it was practically deserted, a really well thought out addition to the itinerary.

There’s so much included on this tour, too much to mention everything, and yet the pace is so relaxed. I was a bit jet lagged, and loved waking up early and exploring the little country towns we stayed in. The included meals were also top quality, and Steve, our tour guide had so much information. He was also great at spotting wildlife and we were able to get some fantastic photos of Kangaroos and Koala (which I’d never seen before). Tower Hill and the Aboriginal Interpretation was also a stand out!!

If you’re looking for a relaxed tour and a top-quality experience of the Great Ocean Road this tour is a fantastic way to see it plus so much more!!

Just completed a wonderful tour in the capable hands of our guide, Steve. He kept us entertained the whole 4 days with his knowledge and stories making it a 'very good' journey. Can't thank him enough and will recommend him, and the trip, to anyone who visits Australia.
Thanks Steve

Myself and my wife joined this Great Ocean Road tour in February 2019. We knew we wanted to see the Great Ocean Road in an unhurried fashion and having looked at the other Great Ocean Road options that left Melbourne and returned to Melbourne we’re so glad we stumbled on this tour with its destination being Adelaide!

We had a lovely view from our vehicle, and because we were part of such a small group (5 of us on our tour) we were able to spread out (not that we needed it with our comfy reclining seats!). Steve our driver was a font of knowledge, and great fun.

You really do a lot on this tour over the 4 days, but highlights for me were visiting the 12 Apostles first thing in the morning on the 2nd day when there were only a scattering of other people, and also Tower Hill, where we were able to learn about Aboriginal history, handle genuine Aboriginal artefacts, eat bush tucker and throw a Boomerang (Thanks Paul). There’s so much included on this tour, and like the name suggests, really does go Beyond the Great Ocean Road.

I went on the Great Ocean Road and Beyond tour in February 2018 and it was great. I was looking for a tour company which offered tours in smaller groups and with enough time to enjoy the trip and not being rushed. I stumbled over See Adelaide (Taste The Barossa) in my search. From the start Dallas and Nikki, the owners, were very friendly and helpful to answer all my questions and after I made my reservation I was very excited to go and see if it could live up to my expectations and it surely did. It was one of my highlights on my trip to Australia. I was the first and only tourist to go on the maiden voyage of the Great Ocean Road and Beyond tour the rest was Nikki and some of her family and a couple of friends. So you might think it could have been a little awkward for me but I felt very welcome and at ease from day one and at the end of the tour almost as a part of the family.

The tour guide Steve was AMAZING or should I say “VERY GOOD” his own favourite phrase. He had a lot of stories to tell and knowledge about the area we were travelling through and great sence of humour. He could always put a smile on my face and we could have a good laugh. He is just a person that’s very easy to be around and impossible not to like which is a huge plus when you have to spend that much time together over 4 days.

You travel in a comfortable mini bus to the sound of Steves greatest hits on the radio when he doesn’t talk and it’s not often he doesn’t do that. And since the tour is 4 days you have time to actually embrace the experience as you don’t have to rush to be at the next place. I really enjoyed The Twelve Apostles, Naracoote Caves, Bremerton Winery, Aboriginal Walks, Umpherston Sinkhole and of course my travel companions. The scenery on the trip was just breathtaking and beautiful.
My accommodation was very nice and I can only give my best recommendation to try this trip. I might even do it again when I return Down Under next year.
