    Our guide Walter was fun to travel with. They took us to multiple places on the Great Ocean Road. They give you sufficient time to explore each location and take the full experience. Overnight accommodation offered was neat/tidy and enjoyable for 1 night.

    I wanted to do a complete Great Ocean Road trip without skipping any attractions and I got nothing less. Walter, our guide, was extremely knowledgeable and helped us have a great time giving us plenty of time to enjoy and keep us on schedule. He was always courteous. We even made a few stops that wasn't on the official itinerary. The van was comfortable and drive was smooth. The YHA accomodation was decent for a night stay. Recommend to anyone who wants Great Ocean Road checked off the list without regrets.
