Wonderful bus tour, we had an excellent driver-full of information on the history of Melbourne and the surrounding area, he really made the tour. Taking ride on the Puffing Billy up through the bush where the miners would have travelled was lovely.
Tour guide/Driver is wonderful.
Definitely recommend booking the lunch option. The meal at the Vineyard is great and comparatively cheaper than most North American and European offerings.
Puffing Billy was the highlight - not enough time for lunch, we felt a bit rushed.
Excellent insight into the Yarra Valley area and a great day out
I thoroughly enjoyed the Puffing Billy Train and sipping wine and champagne in Yarra! Valley.
Loved the trainride, nice lunch. The wildlife sanctuary was interesting.
We had a blast and our Drive Peter was fantastic. The wildlife center allowed us to see all the Austrailian animals in one visit. I highly recomend it if you only have a short stay in Australia.
Our tour guide for this trip was great. Very informative, friendly and helpful. Tea and cake before Puffing Billy was really nice and there are cockatoos to feed (caution advised!). Puffing Billy was good. The lunch at the winery was really good as was the wine. I thought there would be wine tasting, but it seemed you only tasted wine you might like to buy. There was the option to visit more wineries or Healesville Wildlife Sanctuary. This was a guided tour by a keeper which was made it very interesting and the birds of prey show was great. Really enjoyed this trip.
Thoroughly enjoyed the trip. Did it independently earlier in the year, and thought it a good idea for my visitors. They were thoroughly impressed. Highly recommended
Really enjoyable. Really good knowledge of driver. Puffing Billy was good fun. Healesville had a great range of animals.
Fabulous day out, starting off with Billy tea and lamingtons in Dandedong Range, then the 30 min trip on the steam train to fabulous lunch and wine tasting at Fergusons and last but not least the time we spend in Healesville Sanctuary. From the bus driver to the volunteers at the sanctuary was friendly, helpful and all contributed to a great day out!!
Todo muy bien, menos el servicio en el restaurant de la vinatería en el Yarra valley.
Our tour of Puffing Billy, the Yarra Valley and the Healesville Wildlife Sanctuary Day Tour was magnificient. Pick - up from our appointed spot was punctual, the driver was a ball of knowledge and he went out of his way to help people. Puffy Billy brought back many memories of the steam days and the lunch was extremely tasty. Time spent in the Wild life Sanctuary was rewarding also.
We have no hesitation in recommending this day tour to every one. Thanks again for the experience.

We enjoyed our tour very much. We thought we were riding the train to the Winery for lunch and then on to the Wildlife Santuary, but that was not the case. We were on a bus between the different places. a little disappointed, but was still a great tour.
