    The tour was absolutely amazing! The Welcome To Travel team is the best. They really care about the people who are on their tour and in the end our group felt like a family. Darryl was such a great and fun guide who made us all laugh! He really is passionate about what he's doing and he had so many cool nerdy facts to tell us about. I loved the tour because we got to see the city by walking and found out about all these cool places. We also had a road trip to Phillip Island which was so much fun! The team also helps you to set up all the things you need if you are on a working holiday. And they also help you to figure out your next step in Australia which is super helpful because these guys know a lot about traveling and where are the best places to go. So I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone who's thinking about it, it really is so much fun. I had the best week with them, thank you so much!

    Had such a great week with great people, fab food and amazing trips. This was definitely the best way to start my working holiday. All of the team are so helpful and easy going, I was pretty nervous as this was my first big trip by myself but felt so at ease throughout. Massive thanks to Darryl, Adam would have been so lost starting off in Melbourne doing it alone!

    Yes Liv, what a week we had! We loved having your group join us and we're glad you loved it too. Thank you for such a brilliant review, it warms our heart it does!

    Book this week! No better introduction into Melbourne and Australian life, particularly if you are a solo traveller for the first time. So many activities and restaurants/ bars that you wont be able to find by yourself without the guidance of the guys who have been here for years. Couldn't recommend this tour anymore!
    Welcome To Travel commented on this review
    Sarah, such a lovely review, thank you so so much! We had a great time with your group and we're so glad you did too. Enjoy the next part of your adventure, keep in touch and we'll see you soon!
