Once again thank you for such a great break in Melbourne. I had not spent much time down there before and thoroughly enjoyed all the events you planned for us.  It was so well organized and with no hidden costs it all went so smoothly for us holiday makers.


I am looking forward to both Vivid and the Hunter Garden Lights etc and hopefully more journeys next year with you and Carol.


In appreciation……Wendy  4 April 2017

Many thanks for a great time in Melbourne. The organisation, accommodation, and places visited were first class, as was the company.

Just a big thank you to you and Carol for a great holiday.  This was my first trip with Rail Holidays and definitely not the last, I have already signed on for the Melbourne Flower Show and the Wilderness Cruise next year.

The care and concern you showed for each one of us was outstanding.  It was a jam packed few days of excitement which I greatly appreciated.

With my best wishes ……Wendy Rayner  12 Sep 16

I have found Stephen McKelvie’s tours truly marvellous, with all inclusions meticulously planned. Each day differs from the last, which makes Stephen’s tours so varied and interesting.
Having Stephen escorting tours takes all the worry and stress out of travelling, as he is always available to guide and support travellers, and his attention to detail is impressive.

Stephen’s tours always more than meet my expectations.

In the past 8 years I have been travelling with Steve on his many conducted tours. Coach, rail , flights & ship.

Steve’s tours are so well planned and cater for all walks of life.

Costings have always been considered to everyone’s advantage.

Steve has always been willing to go the extra mile to help and to make sure everyone has an enjoyable time.

I have no hesitation in recommending travelling with Steve and I always tell my friends the same.

He is an absolute gem!

Hi Steve,

Congratulations on your new business venture. We feel sure that it is going to be a great success. We have enjoyed many trips with you to numerous areas of Australia. Our latest two trips to Queensland, the Gulf area and Cape York were enjoyable and informative.

We will always have very fond memories of the Western Australia Wild Flower and Indian Pacific trip. Our first Melbourne Cup was a great experience as was the very well organised Tasmanian tour. The Wall in the Wilderness is still a talking point.

The experience of seeing Lake Eyre filling for the first time in many years together with the stunning Flinders Ranges and outback landscape was exceptional, and who could forget the Forgotten Corner adventure, just a few of our great trips with you.

All of our trips have been well organised, meals, tour operators, accommodation and special features have been carefully planned and small hiccups have been ironed out quickly and with good humour. We look forward to travelling with you in the near future.
