Jenny "Did my Ultimate OZ week back in Jan 2015 and loved it! Was a great way to start my move to Australia and my travels. Tour guides were awesome and so fun, kept the group happy and well looked after. Everyone in the office was great, they seemed to know the answer to every question any one had - so helpful! Sorted out all my stuff for me so was hassle free when I got to Oz. The tour itself was great..."

    What can I say.. From being a scared traveler landing in Sydney on my own.. To one week later having some of the best friends I could have ever wished for! Everything you could possibly need to know is told to you with in the first few days. The staff were on hand 24/7 no matter what! The best part of the week is 100% base camp, one day you are in the busy Sydney, and the next 4 wheel driving in the middle of the desert! I would recommend this to anyone traveling to Australia!

    Back in November 2014, I spent my first week in Australia taking part in the UltimateOz program. I arrived a day early and spent most of that day on my own wondering if I had made the right choice to leave my comfortable life in England and move to the other side of the world. Those fears were completely erased as soon as my tour guides bounced into the hostel reception to greet the group! Throughout the week their enthusiasm was infectious, they had an answer for every question, and they knew all the best places to go out in Sydney! On top of that, the staff in the Ultimate headquarters were so supportive and welcoming every time I went into the office; I knew I had nothing to worry about. The activities throughout the week were awesome, and so much free food was included! The city tour on the first day was a great way to get to know Sydney. The guides had so many facts about the city, it was great to hear them talk about a city they love so much. We had a welcome party on the first night which involved a free drink and free dinner and a lot of dancing! The boat cruise on the Tuesday was fantastic, what an amazing way to see the harbour and a different side of the Opera house. Base Camp was my favourite part of the week. A holiday within a holiday! We had the chance to take a selfie with Josie the kangaroo, go sand boarding, dolphin spotting, surfing, chilling at the beach and star gazing at night. We also did a walk to one of the most beautiful lookout points I've ever seen. And we spent the evenings socialising as one big group, playing games and getting to know one another better. By the time we came back to Sydney I knew I had made some friends for life. I actually still live with one of the girls I met in my first week! The week was topped off by a stunning beach walk from Coogee to Bondi and a bar crawl in the evening which involved a party bus and prizes! I won a discount on a trip to Fraser Island (thanks guys)! I had an amazing first week with Ultimate! Can't recommend it highly enough!

    Undoubtedly the best way to see Sydney, meet fellow travellers, explore some of the lesser visited parts of the east coast and make long term friendships. The staff at ultimate travel are the most friendly and helpful I have come across and nothing is too much trouble. Despite finishing our time in Sydney 4 years ago we are still in contact with the guys in Sydney and have used them since for other bookings, advice and to be generally jealous of their lives! The whole operation at Ultimate Travel is professional, well thought out and laid back. Exactly what you need to have a great time!

    I did the Ultimate Oz in November 2015, and it was so much fun! I made friends from all over the world, and the whole week was packed with amazing experiences: a walking tour around the city, a harbour cruise on a catamaran, pizza party, sand boarding, bush walk to Tomaree Head, relaxing on the beach, beach party, dolphin cruise, pub crawl in the city, a beach walk from Coogee to Bondi, and most important I got to pet a kangaroo! I think everyone should do it! It is so much fun! The tour guides and the crew at the office are the best!

    Ultimate Oz is an awesome way to meet new people and have the best introductory week to kick off your Australian adventures. You will meet the most beautiful, awesome, like-minded people who will become friends for life, who you will want to travel with in the future. One of my favorite parts of the week is the Harbor boat Cruise, its one of the first times you are with getting to know people in your group really well, and you are just chilling on a boat with a BBQ, beers, good company, good music and you get the chance to jump off the boat and swim in the Harbour! Its awesome how can you be unhappy on a boat?! THEN you go to BASECAMP which is great!! You get out of the busy city and into nature, you relax and get to know your group even better and have the most fun EVER! From sand boarding to surfing and body boarding, to beach parties to nature walks, from BBQ to soo much pizza, it has something for everyone and guaranteed you will have the best time! The infamous Kangaroo selfies can be taken, Koalas can be spotted in the trees, there is even a reptile show where turtles and other exciting reptiles can be seen and held! Would recommend this week to anyone especially solo travels as its a great transition to travelling life! Thanks Ultimate Oz I love you!

The Ultimate party was also so fun! All in all the whole week was fantastic, the tour was excellent and so much fun, such a great way to start in Australia, and loved having all my banking, sim card etc all set up for me ready, such a great idea. Everyone was awesome and so helpful and I know I can count on them if I ever have any questions or need any help during my whole stay in Australia. Definitely feel part of the Ultimate family now :) Would definitely recommend, 10/10 :)
