We got ourselves a half day morning tour to Puffing Billy with some stopovers at the Dandenong Ranges National Park and the village of Sassafras. John, our amazing guide, drove and gave us a lovely tour. We had such a great time throughout the tour, we would definitely love to have him as our guide the next time we are back.

I took a tour with Grayline in Early May 2017 with my family, we were on the Dandenong & Puffing Billy Coach. They provide hotel pick up, all the passengers are brought in at Federation Square, and later join their specific tour coach from Federation Square. William our coach driver was fantastic, his driving was safe, he kept the tourists informed about the local culture, flora, fauna etc. The hot cup of Bush Billy Tea with lamingtons, vegemite, and crackers kept us going through the early morning chill of Dandenong forest as we moved on towards the heritage puffing billy steam train ride.The tour was professionally managed, the coach was clean. I will definitely recommend tours with Grayline.

As advertised, nice half day trip. Had a chance to take a half hour walk on National Park trail during tea break.
