The whole trip, the view, the spots and the captain make this an experience to remember. The Van was full of JW that came to the convention in Melbourne, and they were also very friendly. As a summary...took much fan and amazed by the beauty of Australia

Hi Estelle, and thank you for taking the time to write us a review. The Great Ocean Road is indeed a long road with full of attractions along the way. The day is approximately 12 hours. We do offer 2 and 3 day tours for the ones who have more time to breath in the atmosphere. Thanks again, and safe travels!
