    positive review  ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Wow wow wow! What an incredible 2 day experience. Jeremy was FANTASTIC! Couldn't praise him enough - His constant jokes, laughter, knowledge of the wildlife and places, the amount of stops we had, the hostel was really lovely, his cooking and his energy throughout. Very blessed to have been with an awesome bunch of people and the sites to see are incredible! HIGHLY recommend this tour! Thank you Jeremy, this has been something I'll always remember. Thank you, thank you, thank you! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

    positive review  I had a very nice time on the one day Great Ocean Road tour. The group was super small, which made the trip even better! Our guide, Jeremy, was relaxed, fun, interesting, and attentive. And the views were wonderful!

  • positive review  The 2-day tour was absolute fun, value for money, well-paced and packing in loads of sights without the crowds. Jeremy was a delight (and great cook too!), sharing heaps of info about the places of interest, geography and wildlife. My family thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, especially the surprise at Kennett River. Definitely an A+ trip!!

    positive review  Me and my Bestfriend Phillipa was lucky to take part in the one day great ocean road tour alongside a amazing tour guide Jeremy. We got to see some of the most amazing and beautiful views on the coast aswell as the apostles. My favourite part was having the birds fly on me I was literally in my element. I could not thank Jeremy our tour guide enough he didn’t only educate us on the tour but also made it fun and exciting. Thankyou jeremy would 100% recommend:)

    positive review  Hey guys! If your are looking for a great experience to the GOR, look for ride tours! Jeremy was an amazing guide and cook great dinner as well! Let him know your favourite veg/food and who knows what he can make out of it! The views were great and there’s less crowd as we went from the west of GOR to Melbourne which was a plus! Great company and experience, definitely coming back again! Cheers!

    positive review  This is hands down the best value tour I've been on! Jeremy is so awesome - very knowledgeable, a great cook and photographer, and makes sure to take care of every member in the group! The tour itself is well planned, we avoided most of the crowds and had ample time to explore the various stops along the route. Hostel is also very good, it's spacious, clean and cozy; friendly owners and onsite brewery is a plus! Would totally recommend this tour (and Jeremy!) to anyone who wishes to go to GOR!

  • positive review  I travel as a solo backpacker and had a really great time on this trip with Jeremy! It’s different from the regular one day tour and definitely worth doing. Our group was a small one, we stayed at a great hostal, Jeremy cooked us dinner (a pleasant surprise) and every place we’ve seen was simply amazing. We were even lucky enough to get glimpse of a whale! Best part of all? Somehow we managed to avoid crowds, which is definitely a plus. I totally recommend these guys at Ride Tours, you’ll enjoy going on a tour with them!

    positive review  Had a fantastic 2 day Great Ocean Road experience with Cameron who was an excellent tour guide. He also cooked us a lovely dinner and was a pleasure to spend time with. Would definitely recommend this company. We saw everything of interest on the GOR at a relaxed pace and I thoroughly enjoyed the entire trip. We were very well looked after!

  • positive review  This is the 'Original' 2 day reverse tour along the GOR - keeping it real. Keeping it excellent value. Do the GOR with this crew and you will have a brilliant experience. **Do your due diligence and stay away from those dodgy operators who have poorly maintained vehicles and most likely no accreditation.

    positive review  Took a trip to Great Ocean Road with Ride Tour ! It was an amazing tour with the awesome tour guide Jude ! She is more a Friend than a tour guide throughout the trip. Her sincerity warms your heart. She has a bubbly and cheerful personality that makes you feel very comfortable throughout the trip and that is how you should feel when you are on a holiday! Strongly recommend everyone to pick ride tour as part of your holidays in Melbourne.

    positive review  I had a great two days on the 2 day Great Ocean Road reverse tour. Jude was a fantastic tour guide, funny, informative and a brilliant storyteller... she even knew where to find koalas, wallaby’s and kangaroos on our trip which was an extra bonus. Managed to see so much of the great ocean road and surrounding areas too. Thanks!

  • positive review  I took an amazing tour led by Jude back in October. Best tour I’ve ever been on. I’ve never met a tour guide who seems to genuinely care as much as Jude. Even though she’s been leading tours for years, it still felt special, like we were her first ever group! She’s so knowledgeable, funny, and welcoming. Good company, good food, great ocean road. Thank you so much!!

    positive review  The tour has been an amazing experience for my wife and me, we enjoyed it from the beginning. The idea of choosing an independent guide which does the opposite of what the mainstream tours do is winning. We saw lots of places without having to queue, the spots were free from tourists so taking pictures has been really smooth. Todd is a great guide, professional, friendly, organised and enthusiast. I would recommend him and his tours without hesitation. Furthermore, we love nature and animals so encountering Australian animals have been emotional, feeding the rosellas was the cherry on top (I felt like I was 8 having these spectacular birds flying right into my arms/head). Note: I would recommend spending the little extra for the accommodation, so you can sleep well and enjoy the second day with 100% of your energy.

    5 star review  Went on a 2D tour with Ride Tours last Oct. I would say is a value for money tour. Todd bring out the best of GOR. As a tourist, we always wanted to have those Instagram photos of Koala, Kangaroo (including the road sign of Kangaroo), emu and GOR, Todd will make sure you have good photos of those! Initially I have concern on the hostel and shared bathroom but it turn out to be good. The hostel is good and the shared bathroom is clean. BF and I really enjoyed our 2D tour. I will definitely recommend Ride Tours, Todd to people who wants to visit GOR and have the most out of the 2D. 2D is just nice to enjoy the beauty of GOR. Todd is a great cook too!

    5 star review  It was a worthwhile 2-day experience. Jude, our guide, was a nice lady and took great care of the group. The weather was gloomy on the first day when we passed by the twelve apostles, but we managed to catch it in its full glory the next day when the weather cleared up. 🙂

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!
