    1 star review  Un conseil, ne choisissez pas ce tour organise. J' avais reserve le mercredi pour un depart le jeudi soit le lendemain. Vers 18h, je recois un appel me signifiant que le voyage est annule car le guide n' a pas bien regarde le planning... J' ai du rechercher en urgence un plan de secours pour mon hebergement... Aucun dedommagement et excuses... A bannir! Ne merite meme pas une etoile

  • 5 star review  The tour was very nice. Jude is a funny and friendly guide that makes everybody feel welcomed and comfy! She has an amazing knowledge of the area (in therms of information about the sites we visited as well as for the wildlife's habits and hidden spots). I had a great time ! It is definitely worth the price! !

  • 5 star review  Just got back from an amazing two day Great Ocean Road tour with amazing tour guide, Jude. The trip itself was awesome and beautiful. The accommodation was wonderful as well. Jude was an exceptional tour guide who was very knowledgeable (on everything!), hilarious and fun. I highly recommend doing the two day Great Ocean Road Tour with Ride Tours- you will not be disappointed! Jude I hope you find your surgeon man, can't wait to visit you in five years! See you again soon!

    5 star review  Amazing trip! From start to finish everything was perfect and definitely exceeded all expectations. Saw so many incredible sights, including some hidden gems that I had never heard of. Todd was an excellent tour guide, very knowledgeable and friendly, with some great banter (for an Aussie). Would certainly recommend this tour to anyone ... It is the best way to see the Great Ocean Road

    5 star review  Amazing trip! I can't imagine doing it in only one day. My daughter and I loved the sights and the adventure, but the best part by far was our guide, Jude. Informative, gracious, hilarious, and a generous soul. Can't wait to see her at Sam's wedding Valentine's day, 2023!

  • 5 star review  If you want the full Great Ocean Road experience this is the Company to go with! Went with Ride Tours on 28-29 Sep 2015 and it was absolute amazing. Since they are doing the tour in a different approach than other Companies, you arrive at most of the sights when there is almost no one else there. This gives you the opportunity to enjoy the sites almost all by yourself, which allows you to be able to take some great photos unhindered of heaps of other tourists. Also, since it is a 2 day tour, you have plenty of time at each of the many beautiful sights so you don’t have to rush through, which I was told that some of my friends doing the 1-day tours had too. Besides the above, both of their tour guides (Todd and June) are really great. Very open, fun and talkative. They’ve both been doing Great Ocean Road tours for many many years so they really know what they are doing / talking about. I highly recommend going with Ride Tours if you want to go see the Great Ocean Road.

    5 star review  Brilliant 2 day tour, saw all kinds of wildlife; koala, kangaroos, emus and got to feed some beautiful looking birds. The hostel we stayed in is clean, nice atmosphere and brews it's own tasty ales! The tour of the road itself was great, Todd is a well informed ethuastic Aussie who kept us entertained. Would recommend!

    5 star review  Had two spectacular days with Jude. The food, the stories, the humor, everything about the tour was on point! Still can't believe on all the fun we missed out by not sitting up front with her for the first day of the tour. We were never at any location with any other tour groups and the weather was unbelievably good??? We saw god knows how many rainbows??? (I know this is out of the control of Ride Tours, I just wanted to point out how amazing the weather was) Basically, book this damn tour, you'll have two brilliant days.

    5 star review  Had the two day tour with Jude and had the most amazing time, she brought such a great personality to the tour, the story telling and so much information! The hostel was brilliant and we stopped at so many places! Making sure we saw Aussie wildlife, the best sunset ever and her unreal master chef abilities in the kitchen! The best part was doing the great ocean road backwards and never seeing any other tourist buses! Her passion really boosted the energy on the tour and we really embraced it! It was such a wonderful trip! Thankyou so much 10/10!!!!

    5 star review  Had a brilliant trip!! 😀 Todd was a fantastic tour guide - he was very informative about all places we stopped off at and went out of his way to make sure everyone was happy and catered for. The Great Ocean Road was amazing to see and I would recommend that everyone go with this tour company. You won't regret it! Todd - you have great banter and Ash and I loved chatting to you for the two days! It wouldn't have been the same without you! Keep up the good work! 🙂 P.S Ash went out and bought the ingredients to make your coconut rice haha! 😛

    5 star review  Big shout out to Todd for an amazing tour. You made this trip so memorable and your knowledge was amazing! The hostel we stayed at was one of the cleanest and nicest I’ve been to, the sights were incredible and never crowded- thanks to Todd knowing when to go. You will experience the Great Ocean Road as it should be experienced- without 500 people in the way. If you want to get great Instagram photos, see kangaroos, koalas and emus in the wild- and believe me- you will see them all! This is the tour for you. Fantastic value for money, perfect amount of time to experience everything without rushing and an amazing guide. Fully recommend. Thanks so much Todd! Have a great Christmas!
