We were taken to all the places we wanted to see, accommodated in first class hotels, flew from a town to another without a hitch, had a sight-seeing tour in every city and were always accompanied by James, our Australian guide who we couldn't praise enough.
Dr Tawfik, Wonders of Australia
The organisation and skill devoted to making this special was exceptional. From the tour managers down to the coach drivers and the choice of hotels there is really nothing I could fault. One big, perfect adventure from start to finish. Thank you!
Mr & Mrs Waters, Wonders of Australia
Have just returned from Australia with this excellent company. When you phone the company you nearly always speak to the same knowledgeable person, nothing was too much trouble. The trip was well planned and all the hotels they used excellent.
