  • Great tour, particularly the train trip and the sanctuary visit. While the train experience was shorter than expected, it was lovely while we were on it. The Sanctuary was beautiful, with knowledgeable, fun guides and amazing animals. The stop in the mountains was pretty boring, although some people enjoyed feeding the birds in the pen. I would recommend going straight in the cafe and enjoying a quick, small breakfast instead of walking the trails or feeding the birds.

  • I can highly recommend the Puffing Billy Train even though it's only 25 minutes worth of a ride. The history is interesting and it was a beautiful day. I cannot in all sincerity recommend the sanctuary. It was disappointing not to see many animals and we were rushed through like we were in a race to stay on schedule. The meal at Fergesson was just OK but the vineyards were beautiful to see. The Sherbrooke Forrest was also enjoyable but again, not much time to take a nature hike.
