    Since I started travelling in January I have not stopped raving about Welcome to Travel and the best tour guides in Australia, Adam and Darryl! This tour is the must do for first time travellers. Before I came to Australia I had no idea where to start setting up bank accounts, SIM cards and TFNs, but all of this is sorted, with nothing being too much to ask. The trip was made be the guides Adam and Darryl, who bring their Northern whit everyday making you feel right at home (even half way across the world) With such a passion for Melbourne the boys have created an itinery that is well planned, and jam packed, giving you the best insight to Melbourne and all it has to offer. Because of this trip I fell in love with Melbourne and look forward to seeing Adam and Darryl when I move there in September

    I couldn't recommend 'Welcome to Travel' enough. They were so helpful and approachable and my holiday literally wouldn't have been what it was without them. Darryl was at the end of a phone if there were any problems, he put us at ease when hurdles came our way but also got us excited and made sure everything he planned suited us to a T! If you want reliable and trustworthy organisers these are your guys! Thanks so much for all your help, we had the time of our lives :)

    -The personalities of the guides are awesome!!! -The tour was mostly walking through the city with the guides. Very useful if your planning to stay for a longer time in Melbourne. There were two paddle board activities as well. One would be enough for me so we could do another activity. -A surf class was included , so much fun. -For me it was perfect, because I wanted to explore the city with the company of a group. -A trip to Phillip island was included. -There was a clear folder with the itinerary -A few dinners and lunches were included. For the price of the tour all dinners/lunches would be more appropriate
    Welcome To Travel commented on this review
    Hi Razia, Thanks your review. We're glad you enjoyed the tour and got that group atmosphere you wanted, that's what the tour is all about :-) Re the paddle boarding, we do only normally include it in the itinerary once (Friday in St Kilda) but we thought we'd treat the group to another shot at it when we went down to Mt Martha in Mornington. Re the food being included, Melbourne is a City known for its incredible range of food (it's why we have a food tour included) and we really want people to be flexible to explore and discover this, rather than pre-determining this by including dinner every day. It would also take away a bit of freedom on those spare evenings. Thanks again for your feedback, it's genuinely appreciated. Adam @ Welcome To Travel.

    I can't say enough good things about Welcome to Travel. I had already been living in Melbourne for 3 months and decided to do the tour as a sort of "reset", and to hopefully see a new side of the city. I was amazed at how much of the tour was totally new to me. Even the things I had seen before I learned about more in-depth and from a fresh perspective. They have a well thought itinerary that also leaves room for flexibility. On Tuesday we rearranged our day a little so we could make Jet's secret-gig in AC/DC laneway, which was SO cool. A truly insider and unique experience, which the tour is full of. The boys are a wealth of knowledge and will help you sort everything for your time in Melbourne and your travels afterwards. Everyone could benefit from this tour – I'm an experienced traveler who had already been living in Melbourne, and I still got so much out of it. If you were just arriving here, I can't imagine what a relief it'd be to have these friendly faces to welcome you! 10/10 for the banter as well. Thanks again for everything, lads.

    The best way to see Melbourne! The boys look after you and show you parts of Melbourne that as a backpacker you wouldn’t see. In one week you can tick off so many Australian bucket list items! Highly recommend as the boys are so lovely, look after you and also have the best dad jokes!
    Welcome To Travel commented on this review
    Lucinda! What a lovely review, thank you so much. We're stoked that you had such a wonderful week with us, we loved showing you Melbourne and surrounds! Adam @ Welcome To Travel. P.S Dad jokes? I don't know what you mean!

    This has been what I can only describe as being an amazing week! We got to see and do so much in a short space of time , the boys were so informative about the history of the city’s landmarks , they also planned the itinerary with fine detail and everything was so well thought out. I would highly recommend anyone to do this the boys are a credit to them selves and I would do it all again if I could!
    Welcome To Travel commented on this review
    Ah Katrina, what a wonderful review, thank you so much! We loved welcoming you to Melbourne and Australia! To this day you remain the best paddle-boarder we've ever had and we don't think that will ever change. Thank you so much for your kind words, see you around Melbourne no doubt ;-) Adam @ Welcome To Travel.

    As a first time solo traveler, Welcome to Travel was a great segue into Australian culture/life. Before joining this tour, I had no idea how where to start with backpacking Australia, the different requirements for finding a job, setting up a bank account, getting a sim card, or even how to ride and navigate a city by tram! It's the little minute details about moving to a new country, that I never really thought about before being faced with it. All these are things I feel like I would have struggled with for weeks, and we knocked it out in one day on the tour! Adam and Darryl are amazing, and very genuine guys. I would totally recommend this tour for any one struggling with where to start in Australia. They really take the time to help each individual person reach their travel goals and plan out/give recommendations for specific trips. Even if you are an experienced traveler and you just want a well-rounded Melbourne experience, this is definitely the tour for you.

    Christal! We loved having you on our trip and welcoming you to this City. We're in awe of the way you've gone on to settle and make this City home for a few months, it's exactly what we like to see! Thank you for your kind words here, it's really appreciated. Adam @ Welcome To Travel.

  • Lynette12th April 2018
    I haven't travelled yet but from what I've seen so far I'm extremely happy I have chosen to travel with TourRadar. From my very first enquiry I was impressed. I had been researching a number of companies to find the right tour for us but all the others took their time in replying and I had to ask a number of times for information. The team at TourRadar were always prompt with answering me and very forthcoming with information. The website was easy to use and I was very impressed that it had so much information. What information I couldn't find on the website was quickly given to me once I asked. Would I refer TourRadar to my friends.....I already have! Now I can't wait to travel
