We loved our trip out of the city! The driver was great, he gave us so much interesting information that otherwise we would have not been able to get. The trip with the train was fun and we got to see some beautiful nature. We had few stops: at the first one the driver made us some really good tea and gave us some local treats:- at the second one, we got to visit few different shops and coffee shops. Great value!

Great Experience. Nice to see the outer area of Melbourne and the tea and Lamingtins where very nice. Guide was really good and the train was a great experience.

The trips were both excellent, and the drivers friendly and informative. Just felt that we were a bit rushed in places.

Great morning tour. We didn't do the extra Penguin and Melb cit tour. The Puffing Billy was a trip down memory lane. Our tour guide James did a good job on commentary and making a lovely cup of tea along the way served with lamingtons. Some free time along the way to enjoy a cafe lunch at Sassafrass and wonderful little heritage town and Feeding the cockatoos was an experience at our morning tea location. I was lucky enough to also spot and witness a Lyrebird singing his various songs and Imitations. I would recommend his tour for a great morning out and returning to Federation Square Round 1pm..

Grayline trip was fun and driver, Russell, very helpful. Be wary of cockatoos at feed point in the forest. Hubby had his arms shredded by them. Puffing Billy was great. Best to sit on platform side of train towards the back to get good view of front of train as it goes round the bends. A good trip.

We did the half day Puffing Billy tour. We live in South Australia and we love coming to Melbourne every now and then. As much as we enjoyed the half day tour...for the cost.... almost 100 a head...we thought the morning tea was very poor. COLES lamingtons served up in the plastic they were wrapped in and a jatz biscuit...obviously aimed at the overseas visitor!

We were not on the Puffing Billy. We were on the lunch cable car. The food was excellent even though the dessert was disappointing which was assorted cheeses. The server was excellent especially his singing. I was totally disappointed in the route that the train took
