The guide was excellent. The information prior the trip was lacking in detail. We were never informed about sharing room with 4 others. The first day was too long, more than 14 hours. Such a trip would require a modern bus with more comfort.

Hi there, and thank you for taking the time to write us a review! The Great Ocean Road is a long one and for the travellers with time in their hand, we do offer the 3 day tour option, which stays first night along the Great Ocean Road in Warrnambool. All the multi day tours include dormitory accommodation, but you can upgrade to hostel or motel private room (due to availability) if you'd like more privacy. Thank you for your feedback, we will take it on board! We hope you enjoy your travels in Australia!
