    We travelled with Paul who is a fun guide/driver. The tour itself is nicely designed with Puffing Billy being the standout attraction. It's just fantastic. However the choice of the Wineries was a bit debatable. Especially the 2nd one(Rochford) was just a soulless experience

    Thank you for your lovely review of your Full Day Puffing Billy Tour with Wildlife option. It sounded like you really enjoyed having Peter as your tour guide and driver. Healesville Sanctuary is such a beautiful place to see our gorgeous native Australian animals and a real treat for overseas visitors. We hope to see you on another Gray Line tour in the future. Kind regards, Mia

    Wonderful trip. Thanks Mr. William for being a wonderful guide. As I was traveling with my 22 months old daughter I was bit worried however, no where we felt as we are being hurried. We were given ample time to explore the areas. This is a kind of leisure tour so come relaxed.

    Travelled out of town on 14th January, picked up on time and departed on time. Good commentary and felt safe on the trip to Puffing Billy. Carriage was reserved for us and unless you are a train buff the trip is long enough. Transferred to another service for the Yarra Valley.
