Overview
Forget about self-drive and concentrate on the scenery of the Great Ocean Road on this day trip from Melbourne. Admire the sights from your touring vehicle and make stops and learn stories about this 1920s-built road that you may miss otherwise.

Alan was a great guide, informative and pleasant. Sites and attractions were worth seeing, with sufficient time at each location. Crowds were a little thick and flies were plentiful.
