This was an excellent trip made even better by the driver, Roger. He was knowledgeable and very personable. A good selection of sites were visited and the Puffing Billy was a fun diversion to the old days.

I am from Melbourne and took a freind over to show them the sights. The trip was fantastic, extreamly well organised and hassle free. It would of been even better if we could of stayed at Healesville Santuary a little longer but no complaints.

It was awesome, especially being able to hand feed the sulfur-crested cockatoos in the morning. Puffing billy and Yarra Valley winery tour were also up to our expectations. Definitely worth the price.

I always use Viator great way to get around. From New York City to Singapore, New Zealand and Melbourne. The drivers are full of information. This trip is the second one I've done love the train! Puffing Billy Steam Train.

It was day well spent. All aspects of the tour were enjoyable and well done. Excellent tour for someone like me who has one free day to see what Australia has to offer in the Melbourne area.

We had a fabulous day on this tour. Our driver was very knowledgeable and informative. He even found kangaroo grazing in a field and stopped for us to have a look!! The Healesville Sanctuary was terrific. I would definitely recommend this tour to everyone.

I really enjoyed the entire day. Each stop had something intriguing and different to offer. The meal at the winery was one of the best meals of my entire vacation. Thanks!

The Puffing Billy Steam Train was a new experience to take compared to a typical train ride in the city. It was fun to enjoy nature whilst riding on Puffing Billy. It really invoked the inner child in me. It was also interesting to explore the operations at Healsville.
We had a great time on our Puffing Billy Steam Train tour. My son enjoyed riding the train and seeing the Yarra Valley from the train. We both enjoyed the Wildlife Sanctuary and the bird show. The food at the Sanctuary was very good. My son did get bit by a sulfur Crest Cockatoo while feeding them that did draw some blood. However it was not that bad and soon he was ready for the next adventure.
The animal sanctuary is fantastic, really enjoyed the time there. Steam train is a great ride, just wish we had more time to view the station, instead of rushing from bus to train. The yarra valley is beautiful!
this trip is interesting and relaxing. Tour guide, Roger is knowledgeable .
Thought train ride was a longer part of tour, but overall this was great. Morning tea was wonderful and the sanctuary was truly unique and amazing. I could have spent days at sanctuary.
Puffing Billy was a must-see destination. Healesville Sanctuary was some how a wildlife hospital. You can't touch the animals in there and the trip was very rush, due to long journey from the city. I would not recommend to add lunch in your package, just do a-la-carte, won't spend you $20 there.
amazing. my kids love it. although personally I think it could be better if the train co can provide umbrella or poncho for the kids during raining or wet season.
It was good. The bus was over filled and the stops were short. Didn't see as much as I would have liked. But The driver was great.
Ok tour route.
