From Melbourne: Dandenong Ranges Tour by Puffing Billy Train
- Transportation included
- Duration: 5 hours
- Private group
An unforgettable and wonderful experience! The organization was very professional and always updating on every single detail. The van was truly comfortable. Our tour guide Matt was very informative, professional and always trying to fit all our needs during the trip, paying attention to all the details and explaining throughout all the places we went past an interesting description. Believe me when I say that this tour is good value for the money! Beautiful landscapes and personalised attention, you won't be disappointed.
Fun day! Train ride was fantastic tho a bit short which was ok with me. Our driver from AAT King (Steve) was friendly and knowledgeable about everything we were seeing. The second half of my day was spent at Healesville Sanctuary. A bit of walking and our pace was a bit quick due to tour time constraints but well worth the trip! Alitalia, our guide, was fabulous.
Our driver was Paul, he was an excellent driver and very funny at times. There was 27 on our tour and all had to get in one carriage of the Puffing Billy, so that wasnt quite so comfortable. Also we had to get off the train half way through the trip, so that was disappointing as well. Generally enjoyed the trip but could have been better.
We were blessed with the weather and it was an excellent experience riding on an old form of transport through the rainforest most of which is run by volunteers .
An interesting trip. The engines were extremely well looked after and the ride was quite interesting. It was a pity the rude wasn’t a little longer though.
