    Cancelled trip didn't even tell though they claimed they contacted me week before trip. No email , no phone. When I went to their office I was treated very rudely as if the cancellation was my fault. I stood in front of the bounderish woman I had spoken to on the phone and

    Dear Debra F We are puzzled by your review as we do not cancel tours a week in advance. On occasions, we do have to cancel a tour and we do our best to contact our customer to advise them of the cancellation and give them an alternative day of travel or explain them their options. We apologise you feel you were spoken to rudely by our staff member as this would defintely not have been our intention. Being in the customer service industry, we have thorough training standards for our customer service. We hope you enjoyed the rest of your time in Melbourne. Kind regards Kelly

    It sounds like you and your daughter had a wonderful day out on our Full Day Puffing Billy tour with Paul. The lunch at Fergussons Winery is a wonderful inclusion especially for families with children. Healesville Sanctuary is always a popular stop with our guests and the volunteers there are really great value so we are glad to hear you had a positive experience there. We appreciated hearing about your lovely day and hope you travel with Gray Line again soon. Kind regards, Mia

    We are so happy to hear you had such a great time on your Puffing Billy with Wildlife Tour. The winery lunch at Fergussons is a real treat and it sounds like Healesville Sanctuary was a memorable stop for you. Our hotel pickup service is complimentary and guests can choose to make their own way to our main departure point to give themselves more time to sleep in or get ready for the day. We are sorry to hear your hotel pickup dropped you off earlier than you expected however unfortunately it cannot be helped sometimes as our complimentary pickups all run on a set schedule. We appreciate the 5 out of 5 stars. Kind regards, Mia

    We had a wonderful day on this tour. The bus driver and tour guide (David -- highly recommended) picked us up at our hotel and made us feel at home right away. He drove us to the Puffing Billy station, treating us to seemingly bottomless knowledge and jokes about Melbourne,
