twelve apostles express private tour.

Short on time and want to see the highlights? It is possible to see the highlights of the Great Ocean Road in @8 hours. A private 'express' Twelve Apostles tour is the best way to maximise your time whilst in Melbourne. You will be back in Melbourne mid afternoon and still be able to explore the city.

Travel the Great Ocean Road via the inland direct route straight to the Twelve Apostles and see them with brilliant morning light illuminating the rock formations and offering the best conditions for photographs.

Visit another featured highlight of the Great Ocean Road; Loch Ard Gorge and hear all about Australia's most tragic shipwreck. 

If time permits- Be dwarfed by the towering cliffs down at Gibson's Beach whilst enjoying a stroll along this incredible coastline.

- This tour avoids the crowds and tour buses.

- Expert commentary and guiding.

- Stop in country towns en route for snacks and meals.

- Hotel pick up in downtown Melbourne.

- Airport or Cruise terminal pick up on request.

what do our guests say about this trip

"Awesome day  with Simon on the Great Ocean Road "

Wow! What a day. Worth every penny to have a private tour with Simon! My husband and I booked Simon to take us on a tour of the Great Ocean Road and tour we did.


We wanted to see as much as possible. Our day started at 7am when Simon picked us up at our hotel in downtown Melbourne. This is a full day adventure. We drove about 3 hrs to the 12 Apostles and beat the crowds and then worked our way backwards.


The rock formations along the coast were breathtaking: the12 Apostles, the Loch Ard Gorge, the Razorback, London Bridge. Simon was very friendly, an easy conversationalist, comfortable to be with, and knowledgeable about the area. This was an unforgettable day and truly worth the splurge!


Thanks Simon!"
