Happy Snow Experiences 🙂

June Lee – from Singapore

Had a great time travelling in our own private car with Harrison to Mount Buller! The car was comfortable, the drive was great, Harrison was awesome! We had lots to chat about and had a couple of stopovers to get food and stuff. Harrison gave some recommendations, showed us several farms and good spots along the way. He was also very flexible with schedule and patient to wait for us when we were late. It’s not the easiest travelling with a toddler but Harrison made our tour fuss-free and enjoyable!


Dexter Kang – from Singapore

Had to pleasure to go on a trip to Mt Buller with Harrison. Very experienced and knowledgeable man.
Enjoyed ourselves thoroughly and his jovial nature definitely made the trip really relaxing and interesting. Not a time watcher and very professional. The mini bus we’re in was also tidy and clean which contributed to the overall satisfaction. Will not hesitate to recommend Harlan Tours to others.


Miranda – Fitzroy High School – Ski Camp

We have used your bus company for the last two years and have loved the service your company provides. I am organising the 2017 Ski Camp at Fitzroy High School. I would like to take 23 students and 3 teachers from Fitzroy High School to Mt Buller and back again.
