First Festival Travel Reviews
Excellent trip - despite the weather Belgium and France organised for us! Very informative guides, one of the best ANZAC dawn services I have been too!! Accommodation and location of hotel excellent. Also the company organised to visit my relatives grave- much appreciated and would recommend doing this tour to any Australian or Kiwi.
Oktoberfest is the best booze up iv ever been to!! it is absolutley mental!!!! it was made even better by having a close hostel with a good bed, breakfast included and awsome tour guides! cheers alana, uncle tony and richie, you guys are legends! I would recomend this trip to anyone, even if you dont drink beer. thanks first festival for an awsome 4 days
Operator's comment: Hi Mark & Ricky, great to hear you enjoyed your weekend!! Hope you got your lost cash back from the insurance company, and that your girlfriend's don't have too much FOMO from missing out on such a great weekend at Oktoberfest!! Hope to see you at the reunion, or on another tour in the future. Cheers!
I had an absolutely amazing time at La Tomatina and the Wine and Water Festival. Doing it with First Festival gave the opportunity to meet many many wonderful people. Retrospectively I probably could have found a cheaper way to get to/from Tomatina but I would recommend First Festival to my family/friends as the organization and helpfullness of the team and transportation/central location arranged for the group were great. thanks
Operator's comment: Hi Kelly, thanks so much for your lovely review! Hope to see you on another tour soon. Take care, the FFT Team :)
Awesome experience and great trip. Very well organized.
I was absolutely guttered with the FFT staff and communication. There was no clear warning that we would not be provided with bedding or pillows except that we needed sleeping bags. We therefore slept on the ground in a tent using our bags as pillows for a week. Although the tour guide was nice, she didn't realise you don't have to yell when using a microphone and didn't offer anymore information other than what times we needed to be where. The bus drivers where absolutely appalling - very unprofessional. Although I understand they were not actually part of the FFT crew, they were still being hired though FFT and should have behaved to represent the company. The 22 hour bus ride was probably the worst thing i have even gone through - almost the entire bus wanted to sleep at some point during the night, yet there was very loud music or movies going the whole night. I am only 22 and enjoy parties etc but it got to the point where everyone was trying to sleep yet nobody could because of the music or movies. The guide was trying to keep everyone happy by keeping the music or movies going yet it made everyone more angry right from day 1. This of course was repeated on the 22 hour journey home - something we were dreading the entire week. Frankly, I would expect much more from a Kiwi crew however they seem to have happily dropped to the lower standards of customer service expected in England. Even when you go into the office they hardly bat an eyelid and seem more interested in the Facebook conversation going on on their computer. Unfortunately we already had Oktoberfest booked prior to the San Fermin trip however I luckily got out of it before hand. I am now very happy I am not travelling again with FFT. My friend can't however get out of her ticket and the other two people we were travelling with are dreading the fact they need to travel again with FFT - they only are as they have already paid and can't get the money back otherwise they would definitely be changing to a far superior travel crew such as TopDeck or Contiki (absolutely worth the extra money!).
