Recommended service provider for day trip to Mount Buller

Hi!
We are heading to Mount Buller early next month and is looking to get some recommendations on reliable service provider whom we can engage for the day tour. Saw the complete list on Mount Buller website however, would prefer to obtain more info from those who have tried and tested the service.

Many thanks in advance.

Those are the reputable ones which includes ski gear, lessons and ski pass for a day trip or with accommodation if you decide to stay over

I signed up with one called evergreen as they were the only one I could find who were willing to do different day return without charging double
Reviews were mixed for them though

You mean Extragreen? The reviews are quite extreme for them ya. Some mentioned to stay away at all cost while others seem quite ok. Cost aside, would you recommend their service?

Not sure what service you're looking for..

Usually the bus pick you up, drive you to mt buller, you collect your ski gear/pass then go for your lesson. After that, its your own time there, then they tell you when you need to return to the bus.

Hahaha.. I got the impression that you have already completed the trip.

Hopefully all goes well for you. Do share your experience once you return.

Yeah.. true that! Just a service provider who would transport us to the mountain and return. But of course, I would want to gather as much info as I can before I eventually engage one.

Saw that Extragreen Holidays being the cheapest while Gray Line seems to be on the other end of the scale. With a price tag that is almost three times lesser than the price that the latter one is offering, that is why I'm wondering if there is indeed a vast difference in the service offered by the varying companies.

from those online reviews, i gather it's the quality of the "tour guide" that goes along with the transport - which for us we probably don't care since we just want transport.

fyi extragreen charges extra $20 for interbank transfer outside of Australia - but still the cheapest. u can use DBS overseas remit for no extra charges

Thanks for the heads up! Well noted on the bank charge if I decide to engage Extragreen eventually.
