    I went on the Wanderlands Australia trip. My overall experience of the trip was good. I met some lovely people and had a great time on all the trips. However, the trip was advertised as a tour that helped those who wanted to work in Australia and said that they would help you with a tax file number, bank account, Medicare etc. But they didn't really give much help at all. The tax file number wasn't applied for until two days into the tour, and it takes up to a month to process, I had to go into a bank by myself after the tour to open an account and they just gave me an address to go to to apply for Medicare. So I wasn't too happy about this as this was the main reason why I chose to do the tour!!... Also our tour guide was new and I probably new more about Sydney than he did.

    Hi Imogen! Is great to hear you had an amazing time with Wanderlands. The Tax file number (TFN) can only be applied for when you're in the country, when the office staff tried to apply on the tour start dates the TFN website were experiencing technical difficulties, it does take 28 days to be delivered. We confirmed the office staff offered assistance to take you to the bank. The medicare must be applied for in person, we appreciate your feedback.

    The New Years trip in Sydney was AMAZING. Honestly couldn't have asked for a better group or tour guides. We were always active in seeing the many great things Sydney had to offer! From bonding dinners with your group to hiking the blue mountains, and just relaxing at the beach this tour has it all! Now let's get looking into an extension in Sydney! I would definitely have loved to stay and see and do more! So great job Wanderlands, looking forward to my Bali trip come April!

    In my opinion, the Wanderlands tour Australia was amazing! I was in Sydney for a whole week before the tour started and I was slightly negative about the city I was planning to live in with my working holiday visa. However, this tour tour completely changed my mind about Sydney and I'm certain to stick around here for at least a month or two. My highlight of the trip was 100% the mojo surf school. The guides on this tour are super cool and have a lot of energy to get everyone in the mood. During this surf school you learn to surf (which is great fun), stay in a groovy hostel (which has tame kangaroos and good free food), and you get to go sandboarding and dolphin watching, which is literally amazing! I did not stop smiling that whole weekend, apart from when I was sleeping. I also thought the Blue mountains tour was amazing, and the scenery was just incredible. In regards to the tour guide we had (James Hamilton) he was very informative and very good at answering any questions we had. He was also happy to help in any situation and was easily approachable. He also got involved with us in everything we did (even every night out) which was good fun, and he was made us feel like a friend not just a tour guide. I genuinely believe this tour is amazing for both people who want to stay in Sydney after the tour and people who want to continue their travels. This is because the tour guides are very willing to help you plan your onwards travels and also help you with all the things you need to arrange in order to set yourself up for working in Sydney! A lot of the time you don't even have to ask, they prompt you, which is good for lazy people!!! So yeah, thankyou Wanderlands for changing my mind about sydney and giving me a good feel of the city I'm planning to live in!

    With it being my first time in Australia I didn't know what to expect. Everyone at Wanderlands were always there to help with any questions or problems! From start to finish the trip was well planned and was a great way to see Sydney. James, our group leader was BRILLIANT! and couldn't have asked for a better trip. Would definitely recommend this to anyone!

    I really enjoyed the tour. It was my first time staying in a hostel, and it has been a great experience. You meet so many people all with different stories, from both on the tour and travelling by themselves. The tour has the perfect degree of flexibility about it to accommodate to everybody. My personal highlight of the tour was the blue mountains, such beautiful views and a trek to wake you up in the morning. Our guide was friendly and encompassing, more like one of the group. However you still know if you have questions or need help that he's there. Overall I would recommend the tour to anybody, especially if it's your first time travelling alone, or if you're slightly nervous in anyway. I've made friends that have made me want to stay here longer and it has truly been a brilliant week!

    The tour was better than expected, The tour guide James was very enthusiastic, fun and had a great haircut. The transport was good and day trips were perfect- only suggestion is to change the early mornings not after nights out. The accommodation was perfect. 5* errythang xo

    Had an amazing experience with wanderlands australia, Thankyou for Dan, Liam and the wanderlands team for taking such good care of us, I felt like the tour guide took time to check erveyones individual needs were met and constantly checked, i even asked questions before the tour started with Liam and felt he was approachable. Highlight of the tour was going away for the weekend out of city and doing some sand boarding! Im happy i choose to do a tour rather than going ahead on my own as i felt the team had good knowledge and took us to the best places!
