Awesome!

Reviewed by: Saori, 2018/05/25

I joined this tour at the beginning of February. As I was a solo traveler, I was told to sit next to the driver. I was surprised but the view from the front seat was amazing.

1.5 hours after we departed from Melbourne, we stopped at Torquay Beach for cake and coffee. It was yummy. The beach was very beautiful with sunshine. After that, the driver stopped for short breaks here and there, which was very nice. Around 11:30am, we had lunch at Kafe Koala, then looked around for koala bears. We chose our lunch on our way there in the car (you check the menu you want to order on the sheet they give you in the car)

I had a bit of accident when we had ice cream at Apolo Bay but it now is a good memory.

We then went to Great Otway to enjoy the nature, followed by Port Campbell National Park, which was my main purpose of coming to Melbourne. I have wanted to come here for many years, and finally made it!

The Twelve Apostles and Loch Ard Gorge were fantastic. The view on the way to Port Campbell was amazing too but the sights of The Twelve Apostles and Loch Ard Gorge were just spectacular.

I had some noodle for dinner. We got to choose our own dinner and went to purchase on our own. Arrived back to Melbourne right before 21:00.

It was a fun packed and great tour. Big thanks to our driver Kel.

I was slightly concerned at first because of the other people's reviews but the pickup to the hotel came right on time. When we transferred to the other bus, we got to sit on the left side seats, so we were able to enjoy the gorgeous views during the tour.

In the morning, we had coffee, tea, and pound cake for light breakfast.

Then we drove along the coastline and went to observation deck and beaches. We managed to spot some wild koala bears even though they were quite high up in the trees.

We chose our lunch beforehand in the bus from the menu choices and had it at Apollo Bay. The lunch was actually very good, much better than our expectations.

The Twelve Apostles which we were looking forward to was fantastic, especially with the help of amazing weather. That sight definitely was the climax of this tour. One thing to note is that it will be windy, so we recommend you bring jackets.

For dinner around 18:30, you choose from the selection of restaurants and you go to buy your own dinners. We went to the noodle shop our guide Joe recommended. Even though there was a queue, they cook very quickly so we did not have to wait much. And the taste was amazing. We again realized that Joe is always right!

We got back to the hotel around 21:30. We had a lot of fun all day long. Our guide Joe was great, funny and thoughtful!
