    Hello thereeee! Ik heb echt een fantastische week gehad in Melbourne dankzij Darryl en Adam!! Ze wisten ons alle leuke en speciale local plekjes te laten zien van de CBD. Van gezellige bar's, de beste koffie tentjes en leuke eetplekken tot de street art straatjes en prachtige culturele gebouwen! Daarnaast hebben we een 2 day trip naar philip island gedaan, waar we hebben gesurft, wildlife gezien (en gegeten ;)) naar een winerie zijn geweest en nog meer! Kortom weten ze in een week vele Australia bucketlist dingen te showen, that's great!! Met hun enthousiaste inzet maakt het de week helemaal compleet! Ik heb enorm genoten en raad het iedereen aan ook de 8 day trip te doen, je komt op leuke plekken die je zou missen als je zelf de stad gaat verkennen, daarnaast bied welcome to travel een fantastische groepssfeer! Thanks for all!!!!!

    Had an amazing time! Adam and Darryl are the best guides! They know so much about the city and are hilarious! Impossible to get bored or having a bad time. In a week you see all the highlights of the city and after a week they help you with the rest of your journey in Australia! I recommend it to everyone!

    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

    -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.

      The website is so easy to use, and with a large number of tours to choose from and great 24/7 backup via phone and online chat, I wouldn't book my trips anywhere else. I also love earning credits towards future tours with each booking. Highly recommended.
