John the bus driver was very safe and experienced with his driving. He also was very knowledgeable about the history of Melbourne city and country. John gave more than acceptable time frames when we stopped. Unfortunately some travellers abused this and made our late return, even later. I feel a little reminder to those who abuse the time frame the first time, is quite okay. This may then deter them from being late a second time as we experienced. The food at Waves was absolutely yummy! I felt the tour was great and will recommend Melbourne's Best Tours to our family and friends.

We were lost getting to the meeting point. I tried contacting Melbourne Day Tours but couldn’t connect. Luckily, they’ve contacted me and guided us to where the buses were waiting for all of us. That was a relief for all of us. Melbourne Day Tours, looked after us and make sure we wouldn’t be left behind. Thanks Melbourne Day Tours. We appreciate it. Highly recommended!

Our Trip with Melbourne's Best Tours especially with our driver and tour guide John was wonderful. The car was luxurious, safe and very comfortable and John drove smoothly and very careful and comply. He is very patience, knowledgeable and charming that made our trip so unforgettable. Many tours offer 12 Great Ocean Road trip/12 apostle with the same route and views, but John gave us much more values to this trip. Definitely highly recommend Melbourne's Best Tours under Get Your Guide.
