Here is a selection of the most recent reviews of the Puffing Billy Steam Train, Yarra Valley and Healesville Wildlife Sanctuary Day Tour submitted by actual travelers. Read what travelers liked, what they loved, and what they thought could be improved.
It was an excellent day out with the family.Our driver and guide,David, was very informative and accomodating. Puffing Billy was excellent, wished we could ride the train longer. We enjoyed the lunch at the vineyard, it was simple but delicious. Highly recommended for family with young or older children. We had used Viator for the Great Ocean Road tour before and we are very please with your services and will use your services again in the future.Reviewed by: Azizi A, Malaysia, May 2013
It was wonderful. Worth taking the tour.Reviewed by: Kuldeep Panda, April 2013
The puffing Billy steam train was an awesome experience. The staff in the train station were super friendly. There is a really happy guy who keeps dancing before the train moves. It was absolutely worth it!
The wildlife sanctuary day tour was a bit disappointing as there was no one to tour us around apparently no one was available to give us a tour because it was too hot.
safe train, good tripReviewed by: monika b, February 2013
I loved it and would do it again. The driver was chatty and able to narrate without impeding the experience or personal conversations. My only suggestion is to have the sanctuary first as by the afternoon the animals were sleeping or trying to avoid the heat. Puffing Billy was an absolute treat!Reviewed by: Jessica H, January 2013
Colin was fantastic!!! Very informative and funny. This tour was the highlight of our holiday. Would not hesitate booking with u again, especially if we had the same tour guide. He deserves a raise :)Reviewed by: Sharon H, January 2013
Enjoyed our day
The driver was very informative
The steam train journey was enjoyable but a little shorter than expected
Really enjoyed feeding the birds
Well worth doing
puffing billy train ride is highly recommended but could have been a longer ride, bus
driver was very good and we had a very enjoyable day.
My husband and I departed Federation Square on what was to be the beginning of one of the best day tours I have EVER undertaken and apart from the Itinerary, it was in no small part due to our driver PETER.
Peter could not have been more informative, his knowledge of Melbourne, The Dandenongs and The Yarra Valley was second to none and exactly what someone wanting to learn about our fair city and surrounds would be eager to learn. He also made everything so interesting.
Morning tea was great, Puffing Billy was fantastic, Lunch at Ferguson's Winery was wonderful and Healsville Sanctuary was a delight.
I am a Melbourne girl and I know a thing or two about my city but as it turns out, I know NOTHING compared to Peter.
At the end of a very long, but satisying day, I would not hesitate to reccomend this wonderful experience to anyone.
And if their other tours are anything like this one, we will be back for more.
And, if their other drivers are of the same calibre as Peter then I am sure the tours will be equally enjoyable.

Thoroughly enjoyed the entire trip, and the lively commentary from our bus driver in particular. Wish we'd had a bit more time at the wildlife sanctuary.Reviewed by: Euda L, November 2012
