  • positive review  From the start to the finish, my two day Great Ocean Road tour was more than I had expected it to be! Everything that we experienced I found myself saying “no this was my favourite part” until we went to the next stop and that was actually my favourite part. Travelling on my own always makes me a bit nervous, but all I felt for the last two days was that I was with friends and that was the best feeling. I’ve done a lot of group tours in touristy destinations through AUS but have never had as much fun as I did with this one. Jeremy never once made us feel like he was just getting his job done, he may have had more fun the last two days than we did! The information he provided about every stop was interesting, but the banter on the road was the most fun! It’s really special to meet people who are passionate about what they do, and that’s Jeremy! I was also blown away by the Port Campbell Hostel. I have never stayed in one so clean, with such friendly staff, and that really did have the feeling that I was at home. You can tell that they really pour their heart into their hostel and it was really special. I actually couldn’t bring myself to go to the room that night cause I wanted to stay in the lounge and take it all in! Not to mention they have their own brewery... how cool is that?! My recommendation on what brew to try: All of them. I was sad arriving back in the city last night, cause I actually didn’t want the tour to end. And coming from a ‘principessa’ (hopefully Jeremy sees this) that’s huge. Will be recommending this trip to everyone I know exploring AUS, and who knows, just might have to do it again myself!

    positive review  Despite the great view on the road all day, our guide Jeremy is so nice. He chose a not so common but still very good line so that we did not need to worry about the traffic. He talked to us a lot about the local cultures. And he even took us to some sights out of the schedule. My fellows are from different culture backgrounds so there are more possibilities. All in all, every minute is worth paying. I will definitely recommend you to book it.

    positive review  Myself & two friends just arrived in Melbourne & were recommended to attend a tour with Ride Tours by Cheap Az Travel. After booking on to see The Great Ocean Road, not knowing what to expect we met our tour guide Cameron. Not only did he make us feel comfortable he provided many laughs. We decided to do the two day tour & the hostel we stayed in was beautiful & had its own brewery. Cameron cooked us a meal catering for everyone’s allergies & needs - which was incredible. So far this has been highlight of our time here! Thank you Cameron!!

  • positive review  I took the one day tour with Jeremy. I searched a few companies but this tour is one of the few that does it in reverse, so you beat the crowds at 12 Apostles. Lunch is included as well. Jeremy is a great guide, patient and caring. The tours are 9 people max which is great! I'd recommend small companies over big brand tours.

    positive review  I went on the 2 day tour and I couldn’t have picked a better way to spend my first 2 days in Australia. Cameron was a wonderful guide. He was not only knowledgeable but had a way of telling stories that was really entertaining. He also cooked us some great food and looked after me when I was feeling ill and jet lagged. We saw koalas, kangaroos and emus and the GOR was absolutely beautiful. I can’t recommend this tour enough.

  • positive review  Unexpected such an enjoyable trip! Jeremy is skillful for almost everything including driving, tour guiding, photographing,cooking etc. He surprise us by cooking such a mouth watering dinner! We were brought to many other attrative spots which are not in the itinerary.The Port Campbell Hostel provided for a night stay is value for money,very clean and peaceful environment. With this 2 days tour, one will visit almost all the attractions at Great Ocean Road including the wild native animals like Kaola, Kangaroo, Emu, Birds etc.Afternoon coffee and tea are prepared by Jeremy too during the journey. Strongly recommend Ride Tour to everyone, you will never regret! An everlasting memory, thumb up again to Jeremy for bringing us such an unforgetable journey!

    positive review  I was on a 2 days Great Ocean Road-tour with Ride Tours, which I can highly recommend! Jemery couldn‘t be a better guide. He has a big knowledge about the wildlife in the region, knows when the spots are in a good light for photography and is, furthemore, a nice, funny guy.

    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  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.

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!!
