Sit Back and Enjoy the Day
Dec 2019
Excellent day out from start to finish. Highly recommend for a day of variety from wildlife to steam train ride to delicious lunch at the winery, chocolate factory was crowded but expected that . A Value for Money day and was nice to be driven instead of driving.

Fun Day and Tour
Oct 2019
This tour packed in a lot but it somehow was relaxing too. Our driver was wonderful and talked just enough but not too much. I liked that the group was small and the van we went it was comfortable. The train ride was short but cute. The lunch was very good and the wines there were the favorites in my group of friends. The chocolate store was crowded but once I tasted the chocolate, it was worth it. Really good. Overall, a very nice day and good value.

ALL THE WINE
my sister and I had a great time on this tour, and the surprise extra stop at the chocolate factory was wonderful. The train was so cute and we loved that everyone was wearing traditional steam train uniforms. Even after tasting wine in 3 wineries it's safe to say we dont like red. The roast dinner at our first winery was also delicious and the tour guide was really good

Great fun day out
Jan 2019 • Couples
Our driver Peter was very entertaining and informative and made the trip.The Puffing Billy train was great fun, just like stepping back in time, it was only half an hour and very pleasant. There were a lot of people but it was very well organised and our coach had a reserved carriage.
We then continued on the coach to a very good roast beef lunch followed by a wine tasting which was basic but ok and then we stopped at a chocolate and ice cream shop which was amazing (and I do not even like chocolate!)and then on to two other wineries for more tastings which were very good.
A full day which was very entertaining and highly enjoyable and we thought good value for money.

Great day out
Aug 2018 • Solo
A full day of activity. Easy to find location to meet the bus. The driver (John) was very knowledgeable about local history and events. He kept it interesting throughout the day. With only a small group it was pleasant to go to places that the big tours weren't going to. We visited 2 wineries and a chocolate factory in the Yarra Valley. Loved the boutique winery. Very informative presentation about their growing and manufacturing process. With lots of tasting thrown in.
Great lunch, albeit a bit rushed to enable us to make Puffing Billy. (But worth it) Fun ride along a historic track.
A great day with good company and an excellent driver/guide.

Great day in the country
Feb 2018 • Couples
Booked this tour and after breakfast at Federation Square boarded a Gray Line coach for the trip to the Dandenong ranges and Puffing Billy. Unfortunately the weather gods we not in our favour and the very strong wind gusts caused havoc with trees blown over and power lines down although it did not affect our trip. We stopped for morning tea where Mountain Ash trees and tree ferns were in abundance. We paid $4 for some bird seed from a cafe/shop and were entertained by the multitude of sulphur crested cockatoos. Off on the Puffing Billy and some more great scenery. We were lucky enough to have brought a jacket as the open carriages were a tad cool. We met up with another smaller bus at the end of the ride and we visited several wineries and then on to lunch. It is a sort of carvery where a very nice lady piled on roast beef and by that I mean a very generous portion size. Then you help yourself to vegetables and Yorkshire puddings. The only complaint I and a few others had was the broccoli was still semi raw and everyone left it on the plate. There was also wines to sample as it was a winery.After lunch it was off to the Yarra Valley Chocolaterie and ice creamery where everyone sampled the chocolates and ice creams. Then it was off to sample more wines at two wineries.The trip back to Melbourne was a bit slow as we hit onto the city workers leaving which meant getting dropped off a little bit further away from where we boarded but a free tram ride soon had us back to our hotel. All in all a great day. On a last note the two bus drivers Russel and John were very professional and helpful.

PUFFING BILLY DAY TOUR PLUS 2 WINERIES ETC.
Mar 2014 • Friends
We had the best day out with our driver, Matthew. He was fun with a great sense of humour and joined in with us by taking and being in photos, Our day started with a devonshire tea morning and feed white cockatoos and then on to lovely old Puffing Billy. Great fun and then Matthew took us to 2 wineries....first one we had a roast lunch and great wine. My husband and I and our 3 other friends had the whole tour to ourselves because it was a Monday. Matthew had time to stop at Tatra Hut in the Dandenongs, where we both were married and were able to show our friends around. We were so pleased he could do this for us. We also had a choc and icecream stop as well. This tour was fantastic value and we can thoroughly recommend Matthew. He even dropped us to our accommodation. Thanks for a great day mate....x
