Took the Sovereign Hill tour today and had the best driver and guide. Adrian was fantastic with his knowledge and passion for his job. It made the day with his tidbits of local history. We will definitely book with Grayline again. Best value and the very best day. Thank you!

Hello lindawoody22! Splendid to read your comments! We really appreciate the review and 5 stars! :D Sovereign Hill is a brilliant open-air museum with its interactive activities, demonstrations, costumed characters and architecture of the 1850s. The tour is definitely made all the more enjoyable and interesting with our Driver Guide’s commentary. They undergo customised training developed in-house for our day tour program. It is also a bonus that many of our Driver Guides have been with us for an extended period of time (Adrian being one of them), which makes their experience invaluable. See you next time for another tour! Best wishes, Jane

Dear missfee27 We are sorry to learn of your disappointment but do appreciate your feedback. For guests’ convenience, we may combine tours with our partner operator when lower numbers dictate. A common practice in the industry, this ensures our business remains viable. Similarly with getting to the airport in plenty of time to join a flight, our check-in process is simpler but we do still ask guests to arrive earlier to facilitate on-time departure. By allowing the extra time, guests are afforded every opportunity to not miss their tour. Sovereign Hill is a magnificent open-air museum and pure joy to step back in time. We are so pleased you had fun. Sincerely, Jane

Just returned from a wonderful day trip with Greyline to Ballarat and Sovereign Hill. An excellent day. What made the trip that much better was our coach driver Adrian. Right from the get-go he was very informative on the PA system giving us excellent commentary right throughout

Dear Jodie and Eugene Such fantastic comments about Adrian! Thank you so much for your review :) We are very fortunate to have highly skilled and professional Driver Guides on our team who love what they do. They genuinely care about our guests’ safety and enjoyment and their passion easily shines through. Quite a few have actually been with us for many, many years ... Adrian included! We look forward to having you join us on another tour on your next trip to AUS! Best wishes, Jane
