A family-owned company since its conception in the 1920s. APT had its beginnings when Bill McGeary built a bus body on a tray truck after a tram strike affected the city of Melbourne. Through Bill's son Geoff, APT pioneered Australia's dynamic travel industry in the 1960s and 1970s via a diverse range of modes. Such innovation continues to thrive within the APT Group today, now a multi-brand business with an extensive global portfolio of touring and cruising products still owned and controlled by the McGeary family.

Questions & Answers

Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions.

  • How much walking is involved?

    Most APT tours require a reasonable level of fitness to be able to walk on sightseeing trips, navigate along uneven ground and should be able to walk unaided for up to 1.5km. Some adventure tours feature visits to remote areas and activities that are more difficult than others.

    Please make sure that you select a tour with an activity level suited to your health and fitness. It is your responsibility to carry any medication you require for the tour’s duration and consult your local medical practitioner for any health advice. Feel free to contact our Travel Experts for more information regarding the fitness level of a specific tour.

  • Are there any benefits for APT Club members?

    Anyone who has previously booked with APT may be entitled to benefits which can be used on future tours. Please contact your Travel Expert for any questions regarding the APT Club membership program.

  • Will I have internet access?

    Internet access is available on the majority of APT tours. However, please ask your Travel Expert if this is available on your tour. Many hotels and cruise ships offer internet access either free-of-charge or for a small fee.

  • What if I have special dietary requirements?

    Please notify your Travel Expert of any dietary requirements that you may have when booking your tour to ensure APT can accommodate your request.

  • What do I pack for my tour?

    There is no strict packing list for APT tours. However, you will receive a ‘Tour Hints’ booklet with your documentation pack that includes a guideline of what to pack for your specific destination.

  • What are ‘Freedom of Choice’ touring options?

    The ‘Freedom of Choice’ touring options are activities that APT has organised to allow you to get the most out of your tour at no additional cost! Please note that these are completely optional, you do not have to do these activities if you do not wish to.

  • Is tipping included?

    Yes! Tipping is included on all APT tours, so you can spend more money on souvenirs and having a great time.

  • Is there a dress code?

    A smart and casual dress code is acceptable on most tours. However, there are some tours that do recommend certain items of clothing for Formal Nights, Captains Dinners, etc. If this is required, a packing list will be sent to you before the beginning of your tour.

  • What are the luggage requirements?

    Each person is allowed to have one main piece of luggage and a daypack. Please keep in mind that both pieces of luggage should weigh no more than 44lbs/20kgs.

  • Are airport transfers included?

    Usually a transfer is included in each direction of your tour if booking an APT operated tour itinerary: one upon arrival and one on your last day. However, this is subject to the specific itinerary booked which your Sales consultant will explain during the course of your booking.

    As a general rule, you will receive a transfer on the first and last day or your tour and/or if you have booked pre or post tour accommodation through APT. Please note that if you have booked a Charter tour or Voyage tour of Europe, please check with your Sales consultant in regards to the included transfers for your specific tour.
