Great Rail Journeys

We're huge fans of rail travel and, while that makes us just a little nostalgic, it also shows that we like to sit back and check out the real world as it passes by. These are just a few of our favourite rail journeys (or one or two we'd REALLY love to...

I have been lucky enough to travel since I was a child and I haven’t stopped since, it’s in my blood! I joined the travel industry in 2012 purchasing this agency and have not looked back. I have recently been to the Kimberley which is now one of my “top 5” trips, Ubud in Bali and on a South Pacific cruise. One of my most memorable travel experiences was trekking wild parts of the Great Wall of China over 3 days which was absolutely amazing. Some of my favourite destinations are Australia, Africa, India, Cambodia, Vietnam and Europe. Like Emmi, I've seen a fair bit of the world, and while I'm still planning my next adventure, I will happily discuss the joys of visiting Argentina Australia Austria Belgium Botswana Cambodia Canada Chile China Cook Islands Croatia Fiji France Germany Greece India (and Andaman Islands) Indonesia Ireland Italy Japan Malaysia Mexico Monaco Namibia Netherlands New Zealand New Caledonia (French territory) Oman Philippines Singapore South Africa Spain Switzerland Thailand Timor-Leste Turkey United Arab Emirates (UAE) United Kingdom (UK) United States of America (USA) including Hawaii Vanuatu Vatican City (Holy See) Vietnam Zambia Zimbabwe.

I’ve been in the travel industry for over 14 years and I haven’t lost the love or passion for the job. I absolutely love to travel, which makes it hard for me to choose my favourite destinations, as I have found charm, quirks and a good beer, everywhere I’ve been! Anything from trekking through the Himalayas, cruising to Jamaica and swimming with the dolphins, watching the sun set over the Caribbean Sea from the beautiful old city of Cartagena, to seeing the sunrise over Uluru, all these experiences would have to be the most memorable moments of my travel, although honestly, I could never pick a favourite. The world is too big and unique to play favourites. I’ve personally travelled through New Zealand  Fiji  Vanuatu Vietnam Cambodia Hong Kong Thailand Indonesia Singapore Malaysia Kenya India Nepal Colombia  Argentina Bolivia Peru Brazil Chile Mexico Haiti Jamaica United States of America UK  France  Germany  Italy,  and as for Australia…… Alice Springs, Ayres Rock, Sydney, Canberra, Brisbane, Cairns, Port Douglas, Palm Cove, Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast, Byron Bay, Hobart, Launceston, Boat Harbour, Port Arthur,  Darwin, Litchfield & Kakadu National Parks, Katherine , Blue Mountains, Airlie Beach, Mackay. I’d be happy to share my experiences with you.  

What Our Clients Say

We’ve been telling people where to go for 16 years, and it seems they really appreciate our advice.

Tony & Terri

What a delightful team! Emmi & Dave have taken the hassle out of organising complex travel arrangements to Europe & the Pacific Islands for us. Some of our requests have been testing but they have all been satisfied fully and their experience has added greatly to the enjoyment of our holidays. Their selection of airlines & fares has made a huge difference to our travel costs. We can highly recommend Macedon Ranges Travel if you are wanting stress free, value for money travel arranged with a smile.

Don’t try coordinating it yourself I promise you this way saves you money….

Verna & Ross

Emmi and Dave from MRTS are super stars….nothing is ever too much trouble for them. When we recently had a major issue with the US ESTA as we were about to depart, Emmi was able to put together alternative travel within hours on a Saturday morning – when the office was not open. Changes to travel plans, issues with splitting confirmed tickets, reservations not being recognised at hotels. all fixed by the wonderful duo at MRTS. Do yourself a favour, let Emmi and Dave take the trouble out of planning your holiday – and leave it in their superbly capable hands.

Margaret G

This is the third time I have been a client of MRTS and I have always received wonderful service. They are very professional but I always feel I am also individually important, more a friend than just a client

Nick & Sue M

Dave and Emmi are local, prompt to answer any queries and have worked tirelessly to accommodate our wishes, find the best deals, all the while giving excellent advice

Todd P

My family and I have had the good fortune to book 4 OS trips with Emmi and Dave from MRTS and will keep using them. We’ve never been stuck, we’ve never been bumped and we’ve always been looked after and Emmi always follows up with a welcome home call – I would highly recommend everyone use them.

Sharon, Janice & Annette

Thank you for the wonderful trip to Europe in 2016. Planning and organisation is key to a successful holiday. You listened to our brief and gave us more than we hoped for.
All our hotels, taxis, international and domestic flight connections throughout Europe were as clockwork.
The staff in the hotels were exceptional, the quality of the rooms excellent, and everywhere we went, especially our private tours, the operators were one hundred percent- the Battlefields of France- stood out, we would do that again. Same with Mt Saint Michel-Wow what a place!
The folder you provided gave us as novice travellers a detailed account of where we were going and where we needed to be at all times. The rail tickets, hotel vouchers all in sequence were so helpful to the smooth running of a busy schedule.
As people who care for others in our everyday lives you have us a holiday that was inspiring, relaxing and truly memorable. On our return we looked years younger because we had such a happy time.
We had the best holiday ever. Thankyou.

MRTS have been revelatory in these ‘do it yourself -book online’ digital times. The team have regularly demonstrated the value of their knowledge (something you don’t get when you book direct online yourself!) to ensure that my many business trips to China, the USA and Europe, have been both smooth and trouble free – with great accommodation and connecting travel. Keenly priced too.I would never have been able to find the hotels and rail connections that they came up with – and they think about things like airport transit times for connections and the like, plus they seem to have certain charm with the car rental firms as I’m almost always upgraded when they book – never when I do it myself online!
Not only is it the very height of convenience to employ their expertise – it’s cost effective too as there are no costly mistakes (try ‘low cost’ airlines in Europe and you’ll see what I mean). I will always use MRTS for our international travel.

Bayden H

Absolutely thrilled with the professional, friendly and knowledgeable service we receive from the team. We’ve entrusted them with our honeymoon, and other extensive holidays of 5+ weeks duration. The team always does an outstanding job, showing tremendous patience and attention to detail. This is a five star service that we cannot recommend enough

S & D Davies

MRTS has helped us organise many excellent trips over the last 4 – 5 years to varied destinations including India, Southern Africa, Europe and the USA. Each time they’ve been fabulous, incredibly knowledgeable and provided great advice.
I’d have no hesitation in recommending them and will be using their services in the future.

Carole T

I have used MRTS three times for our overseas trips and I couldn’t have been happier. Nothing is too much trouble for this team and I would highly recommend them to anyone with travel plans.
Thanks to the team for your help and expertise and am sure to see you again!

Glen T

I’ve been using Macedon Ranges Travel Service for 11 years now and have completed 17 overseas trips thus far. The organisation of every holiday has been fantastic. Even when the inevitable hiccup has occurred, MRSC has dealt with it, usually before I knew there was a problem, and contacted me to tell me what the new arrangements are. The internet doesn’t do that for you!

Roger K

My wife and I have been return customers to MRTS for a considerable period of time now. The friendly service is efficient and the knowledgeable staff ensure a trouble free trip. I have experienced a travel ‘muck up’ in a booking using a well-known alternative company in the past, but never with MRTS. I have full confidence in dealing with team in all travel matters.

Pam L

I was grateful for their expertise when organising my recent gardening holiday in the UK. The team was considerate and thoughtful and covered every detail when putting together bookings for accommodation, tours, car hire, flights etc. Every aspect of the holiday unfolded perfectly as I travelled, making for a pleasant and enjoyable holiday.

Mary H

I have always been very happy with the services and advice that MRTS has provided. I travelled around the world alone without one problem. Their efforts to locate the best value for accommodation and tours is terrific, and we always have a project in the planning.


Thanks again for organising all the details for us. Once again we had a hassle free time which meant we could enjoy out time away in Asia.


We had a fabulous trip. Given that it was our first overseas trip, your advice was much appreciated. Many thanks, we’ll be back!

Sarah N

Thanks heaps for your commitment in preparing and making yet another awesome holiday come true. MRTS is the best, I’ll not deal with another agent whilst you’re in operation

Robyn & Vicki

Vicki and I had our best holiday ever. From the moment we left Perth to the moment we got back to Perth everything went perfectly.
