Best 2 Days Ever

Oh, the sights we have seen on this tour- for every stop I found a new favorite. Victoria is blessed with an abundance of stunning vistas, and they were on the forefront of this well thought-out 2-Day tour of the Great Ocean Road & Phillip Island. With a very knowledgable tour guide in Peter B., we were able to see & experience the highlights of the 243km stretch of the Great Ocean Road- starting with Gibson steps, the 12 Apostles, the Loch Ard Gorge, a short stroll in the Otway Rainforest, an ice cream stop(Award- winning ice cream!), Koalas in their natural habitat, scenic lookout stops, and a nice bbq dinner prepared by Peter B to cap off the first day.

2nd day started off with a ferry crossing from Queenscliff to Sorento, then a stop at a farm with all the famous Australian fauna, a mini chocolate factory tour, some swan seeing at Swan Lake, a photo stop for the Pyramid rock, a quick Grand Prix circuit look, a stroll at some beach in Phillip Island, and finally, the highlight of the trip- seeing the Penguin parade.

Now, don't be deceived by the amount of sights we saw in a span of 2 days- it may sound like a packed itinerary, but it never felt rushed, and we had plenty of time to take in the sights and take photos. I'm thinking this is largely owed to our tour guide's extensive knowledge on the ebb and flow of tourism on the Great Ocean Road as he was able to effectively divert our group from mixing in and competing with the hordes of other tourists swarming the sights. Very very impressive.

Aside from the above pros, also worth mentioning are the provisions that came with the tour-morning tea on the first day, lunch, dinner, an overnight stay at Bell's Beach backpackers hostel in Torquay, and family-style Bfast the following day. I must say, the hostel is probably one of the cleanest I've seen, and if you don't mind rooming with your newfound tour friends, it really is great value(compared to upgrading to rooms with ensuite bathrooms at another motel).

And saving the best for last- I have to hand it to our tour guide, Peter B, for making the tour so entertaining and educational and enjoyable, all the while keeping to our schedule(that we never felt pressured to abide by). His knowledge on the Australian people, geography, flora and fauna, and (more importantly) their conservation & preservation is truly the best takeaway a tourist (for this one anyway) could get from a trip like this.

Amazing 2 day Tour

I went for a Great ocean road 2 days tour and I couldn't have chose better. The tour was amazing, Darren was a great guide and made the trip very informative and enjoyable. We saw everything the great ocean road has to offer + Phillip island and penguin parade. Small group made you feel like being on a road trip with friends. Moreover, the food was amazing. Definitely recommend. Would love to go back 🙂
