    Had a great time traveling in our own private car with Harrison to Mount Buller ! The car was comfortable, drive was great, Harrison was awesome ! We had lots to chat about and had a couple of stopovers to get food and stuffs. Harrison … More 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 traveling with a toddler but Harrison made our tour fuss free and enjoyable !

    A fun tour with professional driver. My family’s and I (with 3 little kids) went to Mt. Buller with Harlan Transport, Harrison’s the driver. He is outgoing and shared so many funny story with us which add more fun to our trip. 4 hours drive … More with little kids is not a short trip, but we had a fun ride.
    The weather at Mt. Buller was beautiful but a bit windy, children had so much fun with the snow. We heading back at 4pm just the weather started to get unfriendly (raining), fortunately. Everyone tired and we had a safe trip back home resting. Thank you so much Harrison.

    Harlan made our trip to Mt Buller very memorable and comfortable. By the way the diver was friendly, supportive and shared lots of local jokes and knowledge of the area.

    I had such a great experience with Harrison. He was such a friendly and genuine guy that a 3-4 hour trip didn't feel long at all. He transported my family and I safely and was very patient. He didn't mind waiting at all as compared … More to other companies that often rush the passengers to move along despite you paying a pretty big amount of money. The places Harrison brought us to were: 1. Mt. Buller2. Yarra Valley 3. Mornington 4. Philip IslandWould definitely recommend Harlan Transport and Harrison to anyone out there looking for private transport.

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