We toured with Gregg for three days and we would highly recommend him as a tour guide. He was very accommodating and especially concerned about one of our travelers who needed special care.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Tom I am glad your group enjoyed the wonderful wineries and your close up encounter with a Koala. It was nice to finish the day with a chocolate treat!

Tour: #51865, Puffing Billy Vintage Steam Train, Healesville Sanctuary Private Tour 4 Jan 2017, Melbourne, VIC, Australia    
Date: Jan 4/17

due to limited time, we skipped the puffing billy and opted to spend the time in the sanctuary. This was an incredible day for the entire family. Our kids & grandkids ranged in age from 6 to 53 plus my wife $ I in our 70th). The display of Australian wildlife in a breathtaking surroundings is worth the hour plus drive in each direction. Greg is a great guide. Has good feel for the group's desire and helps to accommodate all the need. He is also very knowledgeable in Australian history, the wildlife.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Reuven. It was great that I could show your group all the wonderful Australian animals at Healesville Sanctuary. The Close Up Encounter with the koalas that I arranged instead of Puffing Billy was a great hit with everyone!

This is the third private tour we have done with Greg. He's absolutely a charm with my three girls and they are going to miss the light conversations they had with him during the three days. Puffing Billy was the highlight of this tour and his keenness to details has allowed us to choose one of the best wagons that gave us one of the best views of the front and back of the train as the train weaved its way through the forest. Should we be back to Melbourne, Greg is definitely our top pick for our guide!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Esther Thank you for your kind comments. I had a great time showing you and your family around some of Victoria's beautiful scenery and attractions. And judging from your big smiles, I think I had "five" children enjoying the ride on Puffing Billy - it certainly is one on Melbourne's great treasures. I hope you enjoy the rest of your holiday as much and have a safe trip home Greg.

Greg is simply the best tour guide, perfect plans, great vehicle, on time everywhere! He is flexible as we changed the plans midway to do other things and he was always accommodating. The Healesville Sanctuary was fantastic. Greg took us to a wonderful spot for tea, the best scones in my life and lovely jam ! His tour included all the food and snacks, so it was great not to worry about it. If you ever go to Melbourne, Greg is your guy, he took splendid care of our group of 6!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Laurie. I am glad your enjoyed yourselves. The close up encounters at Healesville Sanctuary are always great value. And yes the scones are great too!
