    It was ok. Too many British people. Tooooo long on the buses. Way more travel than enjoyment. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. Also hotels far from all main city centers. The excursions were really waaaayyy too much work for the small pleasure.

    Trys made my time in Australia, this was my first time going abroad by myself and Trys made it so easy and ensured I made friends and had the best time! Trys always made sure people were included and able to experience as much as possible no matter how long they had! Trys has inspired me to carry on seeing the world as he made me realise how easy it can be and unfortunately he's frequent saying that 'you can always get more money' has stuck with me and I am excited to see many other places!!

    The trip was amazing and everything that I wanted out of travelling the east coast. You have some amazing opportunities to do some once in a life time things like climb the harbour bridge. Our tour manager was amazing. He made an effort with each individual person on the trip and made sure that we were all having fun. At the end of the trip my friend had to go to hospital and he made sure that I was being looked after and went out of his way to do things for us which was such a big help, I wouldn't of known what to do without him. Overall a really fantastic trip that I will never forget.

If it hadn't have been for Trys Eddy who kept us entertained on the bus rides, guided us into the unknown and made us feel at ease when we were homesick then I wouldn't have come away with such a positive experience. His transcending personality and his love of photography is what captured me the most. It was an unforgettable few weeks all thanks to Trys. I wouldn't have wanted any other tour guide.

    The trip was great. It wasn't sure what exactly to expect as this was my first Contiki tour. There was a great mix of activities that kept us busy but we still got to enjoy the Australian beaches as well.

  • December 1, 2016

    Is it 100% guaranteed that a private bathroom facility will be provided in every single/twin accommodation?

    In most cases you will have a private en suite bathroom in twin share rooms, but it is not guaranteed due to some issue outside of Contiki's hands where there are hotels that can't provide this for you. Therefore, it is likely you will have en suite bathrooms, but we cannot guarantee.
