It was a great 2 day tour. Dandy was great and friendly, very informative and helpful. The tour was perfect, covered most of the highlights of ocean road. This tour I would definitely recommend to everyone.

I enjoyed this experience, I'm glad I went and, as a solo traveler, found it not only interesting in itself but also a great way to socialize a little. It was nice to see as many young people on the bus as there were! The tour guide, Dandi was excellent. He was personable, articulate, and caring. He shared interesting stories of the areas we traveled through, as well as information on Australian culture, the indigenous people, and even of his own family, which was delightful. I appreciated that times, he put on music playlists of Australian artists to entertain as we made our way through some 600km of road on the first day. I did not realize just how long the first day was to be. We were picked up at 7:30am and didn't see a bed until 11pm! The second day was a full one, starting at 7am for breakfast so the group can then get out to see the animals before they settle away with the sun high in the sky. All in all, we saw a lot and went a long way! I didn't pack a jacket as it was so hot when we left Melbourne, but the weather turned by late afternoon and I wished I had.
