    This was the trip of a lifetime. Jayne, trip manager, was absolutely fantastic and helped everyone feel welcome. The accommodation was fantastic, my favourite being Gilligans in Cairns. The trip was just amazing and I couldn’t fault a bit of it!

    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.

    Good itinerary and included activities. If you are used to travelling solo or in small groups (and like it), probably not the right trip, but good for those who want or need some hand-holding whilst seeing the world.

  • Will a private bathroom facility 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.

  • What is the standard accommodation for this tour?

    Hotels, resorts, hostels, surf villages (and a night at a cattle station!) will be used for accommodation during this tour. All accommodation has been hand-picked., tried and tested.
