Cold winter mornig wake up and pick up at 6:10 but luckily for us our coach arrived at 6. The only mishap in this tour was that, when we filled out our application our hotel was listed so it was a big relief thinking we were going to be picked up from there, and unfortunatley within the 24hr i was told that we had to go to a nearby hotel to be picked up. With 3 kids i thought it would be a drama, but waking knowing they were going to see snow, threw that drama put the window.
It was our first time visiting the snow, so it was magical to get an even bigger suprise of seeing snowflakes for the first time.
The journey was long, but we soon got there.
Don was our coach driver and was so helpful with everyone on board.
We stopped at a little town to hire out our winter stuff and since we were from the coach we got a discount. It was handy to know that we could leave our bags in the bus locked or in the storage area so we could grab our stuff if we needed to.
we enjoyed our day of tabogganing.
The trip on the way back was exhausting as roads were slippery from snow but we got to see a movie or have a nap tlll we got back to our hotel.
Yes we will be visiting Mt Bulla again but this time staying over night or 2 nights as the snow was amazing.
Overall the tour is good. Clear instructions for the pick up time. The guide cum driver is very experience. Giving us enough time to play at Mt Buller. Will recommend to my friends for this activity!
The best experience that i had with my family. A very well organize trip by the organizer and tour driver...Recommended to all first timer who want to gain this snow field experience...Will used Viator on my next trip as Viator is a very well manage and good travel agent... Congrate
Amazing the Coach Driver David was very friendly. Flawless day!
two full days of snow before we arrived perfect.
The coach driver is the most lovely, pleasant and informative gentleman.
Such a pleasure to be around.
had such a great time up in the snow. plenty of time.
the driver knows everything and has time for all your questions.
Such an awesome day!! Lucky to get great snow although I didn't ski I really enjoyed a gondola ride and a snowshoe walk. Took plenty of great photos too, and our driver George was friendly and informative. Big thumbs up!
We signed up for the Tour with Beginners Skiing lessons. Considering it's our first skiing experience, we actually had loads of fun. Our teacher, Hans was very good. Within 2 hours, we were able to ski down a gentle slope!
The Bus stopped at Mansfield for us to hire all the ski stuff before proceeding up Mt Buller. Even though it was cheaper to hire at Mansfield, I felt it was not worth the time and effort lugging around all the heavy stuff. Perhaps the Tour operator could have informed us of the option. One can also hire them at the Ski school on Mt. Buller itself. Moreover, this delayed the schedule and we missed the 11am class. We had to take the next class from 1.30pm-3.30pm. After class, we had to rush to back to the Bus who was departing at 4.30pm.
Overall, we had a great time and would highly recommend taking the ski lessons if you don't already know how to ski.
Very happy with easy booking and professional service throughout. Will certainly use Viator again.
Thanks Daryl. Your exceptional hospitality and knowledge of the area is to be highly commended. Well worth the trip.
A fabulous day trip, well worth the early morning start and definately a great way to spend the day with the family. Our bus driver Russell was informative and comical and more than helpful. I would thoroughly recommend this trip to melbourne visitors looking for a great day out.
Excellent - we had the best time - bus driver Darryl was very funny - very helpful - great trip - would definitely go again!
I impressed in very good service especially the driver "Jeff" is fantastic.
Thanks Viator. Our trip went very smoothly. The bus driver was great, very informative and the day was amazing. It is definately a trip that we will always remember and would definately recommend it to anyone.
Great day, picked up on time, friendly coach driver gave interesting commentary along the way. Plenty of time in the snow, enough for a days skiing if you wanted. It even snowed so made a great trip for those who had never seen snow
I would recommend this tour to anyone who is visiting Melbourne and wants to experience the snow. Mt Buller is absolutely beautiful and the tour is very well organised, picking us up from the front of our hotel and dropping us back there that night. The driver was very informative along the way answered any questions. After a day in the snow we are now planning on going back for a lot longer. Well worth every cent for a day trip on a short Melbourne stay.
