All worked seamlessly. Loved the commentary by the driver/guide. Bush Billy tea was excellent. Puffing billing was great, loved town of Sassafras. Churchill and Phillip Island were fantastic!

Well-planned itinerary which filled the day. The Puffing Billy trip in the morning was good fun - with Billy Tea and Lamingtons en-route a nice treat! Great driver with a dry sense of humour who was also very helpful and knowledgeable. We returned to Melbourne for a change of coach for the afternoon trip to see the Little Penguins. Another good driver and informative commentary. Would highly recommend this trip.
