What a great way to see both sides of the bay in a day. Included a ferry ride and lunch as well. Loved the St. Andrews brewery visit and Arthurs seat. The tour was on a mini bus seating about 10 and included a knowledgeable and very friendly guide, Matt. All the stops provided enough time to look around. Cheers Kim and Steve
Great experience for families with kids. The train moves quite slowly but it gets there! The Lakeside journey had miniature train exhibit and a paddleboat with gorgeous lakeview. Bring some biscuit or bread so you can picnic by the lakeside and feed some ducks there. We went during autumn so could see plenty of trees turning red, orange, yellow... Just Beautiful!
Difficulty looking for parking so go early.
Very good experience as trains are replaced by electric trains etc.
A lot of photo opportunities.
There was nothing to do at lakeside so we quickly hop onto a departing return train (good idea at that time but we had to squeeze in with the others).
Overall a good experience.
We had a great time on the tour with Monique. She is incredibly knowledgeable about all things to do with coffee, its preparation, history, politics and geography. She can also tell you which café is best for the style of coffee you want. Most importantly Monique has an engaging style. I highly recommend this tour to see some streets of Melbourne, sample a range of coffees, learn a lot and have fun.
A good day out on Puffing Billy which chugs away and take you in the spectacular scenery of the beautiful Sherbrooke Forest. Enjoyed the spectacular view of the iconic Monbulk Creek trestle bridge.
Overall another memorable trip which you and your family must try if you come to Melbourne. Thanks to Klook for the convenient of getting the booking and cheaper tickets via online.
Book through Klook as there are limited ticket for each time slots. If you are lucky you can even board the train ahead of the boarding time, if you arrive early and there are still space on the train. Choose the Belgrave station if you are not driving as you can take their subway and buses to Belgrave.
