“We had a wonderful time with our kind guide Khalid, a scholar and gentleman. As the Dandenongs were under cloud, he took us to Chocolatier in Yarra Glen as an extra treat for my daughter. Khalid has mastered the art of customer service - this tour, and I imagine any other with this company, is highly recommended.”

“We did the puffing billy and dandenong ranges tour with them. Exceptional service and very accomodating staff! Thank you Melbourne's Best Tours especially to Jun, the receptionist, you're a life saver! And to our driver and tour guide John. We'll book another tour with them again!”

“This was a small group of 6 which was good. Puffing Billy was a lovely ride. This was the main attraction when in reality, it was only a very small component of the day! The short visits to both Olinda and Sassafras were lovely quaint towns.”
