I Heart Melbourne Tours

Puffing Billy has to be seen to be believed. Put quite simply it is magnificent, and it is a guarantee that this train will make your soul sing. On the Puffing Billy and Dandenongs Tour with I Heart Melbourne Tours you will experience one of the world's finest steam trains as it winds its way through the amazing temperate rainforest sitting in exhilarating open sided carriages.

During the summer season, they include an additional stop to go berry or cherry picking (sampling the goods is obligatory!) before heading back into Melbourne. In the winter explore the wonderful hill side township of Sassafrass with its lovely tea rooms and boutique shops. This is something unique to I Heart Melbourne Tours and you won't get elsewhere. They are thrilled to bring you this tour.

This half day tour includes morning tea and feeding the wild cockatoos and rosellas, a ride on Puffing Billy through some of the tallest trees in the world and over tressel bridges.

Small groups allow you to see more off-the-beaten track. Door-to-door service and language translation service available.

Tour operator

I Heart Melbourne Tours are experts in private tours and are Victoria's first specialised family tour provider. They also take charter tours to Victoria's wine growing regions and more.

If you are travelling to Melbourne as a family then the small family tours are the best solution for you. Do not be restricted in where you can go because you have little ones in tow. I Heart Melbourne Tours have created a range of tours with kids (and parents) in mind.

All you need to do is book your tour and turn up. Everything else will be organised for you, from child restraints, to strollers and toys. They will have everything you need on board, and it is at no additional cost to you. I Heart Melbourne Tours can even run Peppa Pig on repeat in the car if that's what you need to maximise tour enjoyment.

Just adults? You are equally as welcome.

Tours are able to be customised. All full day tours include a gourmet dining experience, complementary refreshments, door-to-door service and commentary from your personal tour guide.

You do not have to be a visitor to Melbourne to enjoy the I Heart Melbourne Tours. You can be a tourist in your own town and take a day off from designating driving to take in all that Victoria's wine growing regions have to offer.
