Our whole family loved this trip and the whole day itself.
The coach driver Peter had a wealth of local knowledge as well as the history behind the 'Puffing Billy' which made it even more special.
The train ride itself was very enjoyable and our 3 young kids loved it. The trip afterwards around the animal sanctuary was also lovely and our guide Rae was great fun and got our kids involved.
If you are planning on visiting Melbourne and thinking of a day trip then this is a must !
Had a great time tour guide had great knowledge would highly recommend
Good food, amazing scenery, had a wonderful time. The bus driver/tour guide was especially informative and funny. Next time any of my friends want to go on a tour in Melbourne, I'm recommending this!
A lovely way to spend the day! Tour guide provided interesting information during bus ride, and the tour guide at Healesville was awesome.
Fun ride on the Puffing Billy but a little short. Feeding the cockatoos and rosellas in the Dandenong Ranges was really neat. Healesville Sanctuary was definitely worth seeing.
Loved this tour as well! Very well organized, our guide David was friendly, knowledgeable and very patient. The bus space and seat are comfortable, however no wifi was available during the trip, unlike the other AATKings buses.
All of the places we visited are interesting. Many lessons learned abt nature n animals. Puffing Billy is very classic. No one should miss visiting these places. The tour team is very friendly, the coached bus driver is very informative n funny. Enjoyed his funny jokes on the way to the destination.
we had a lovely day and Roger was a great bus driver and tour guide. He made it all very easy for us. My son would have given him 10 bonus's as he got us all home safe and sound. Thanks again Henry and Cathy
Very we'll organised trip with knowledgable driver/guide. Could relax and let someone else do the organising! The Healesville wildlife sanctuary was great fun with two very enthusiastic, very funny volunteer guides, we all left with huge smiles on our faces. Great day.
Great trip with lovely views along the way. An excellent trip for all age groups with an interesting stop at the Healesville wildlife sanctuary with knowledgeable staff and a good selection of animals on display.
Amazing, especially beautiful coffee with dessert
had a wonderful day,particularly the wildlife park at Healesville. The coach trip with the driver
commentary was most informative
Tour was excellent and very professionally handled. Driver (Edward) was informative, friendly and a good driver.
Amazing experience feeding cockatoos, travelling on old narrow gauge train and visiting Healesville animal sactuary. Our objective was to get close to a full set of Australian wildlife - checked that list off! Kangaroos, wallabies, koalas, echidna, platypus, wombat etc with a guide who walked us through the sanctuary explaining about the habits of the wildlife. Bird exhibit was amazing!
Understood from web site that winery visit was included - found it was Healesville Sanctuary OR wine tour - bit more clarity would have been helpful, but didn't detract from the day.
All in all a really good day - amazing experience, I'd really recommend it.
