    An awesome time with a bunch of awesome people. See some amazing sites on this tour and the itinerary ensures you get the most out of your time in each place. You really get a taste of each place and our tour guide Tia was fantastic at giving us an insight into the history and culture of each place, giving us an idea of specific little cool things to look out for that a common tourist wouldn't even notice. A lot of time is spent on the bus, however it is a comfortable bus and our driver Graeme was fantastic at navigating through some streets that none of us would be close to comfortable trying to drive through. The food our chef Sam cooked was also extremely nice and he was also great fun to be around, as were Graeme and Tia. Wouldn't have wished for any other staff and was stoked with how the tour went.

    Good tour for a good price, couple of things that could be changed, the bus broke down several times and was probably the worst bus, should have a bit more optionals, for example a tour of the colosseum since lots of people want to see it and the difficulty of getting tickets

    Went on a camping trip with a few mates last year, will definitely do it again. Met some amazing people and saw increadible sights. Out trip leader was awesome, had a great sense of humour and was quite knowledgable. The same could be said about our driver and our chef, Amy. (who prepared delicious meals and always exceeded expectations)

    This tour was amazing, Jacob was phenomenal, entertaining and knowledgeable. He helped to bring the whole group together and always was willing to help us. Noel our driving kept us on time and the bus between the lines. Brendon was a riot and was an amazing cook. Jenna and I would recommend this trip especially with those 3 staff members. Give them all a raise!

    My review is going to solely be on my tour guide, Jacob. From the moment we met up with the tour group Jacob was organized, hilarious and going above and beyond. His easy going nature, inside tips and fun loving personality made every day even more exciting. His passion and love for his job shines through in all that he does and never once did he fault in his duty as a guide, or as a friend. I never thought learning about all that we were seeing could be so fun and informative. Genuinely, Jacob is incredible at what he does.

    Incredible trip! Food was above expectation, accommodation (particularly the campsites) was beyond my imagination. My crew leader - Jacob - was superbly amazing, he was super helpful, hilarious and ridiculously insightful. I'd be disappointed to go on another tour without him. The tour was absolutely so much fun, with insanely beautiful locations, relaxing but chock-full of activities all at once, 10/10!

    We did sailing around the Greek Islands first and was a super awesome way to get into holiday mode. Had a wicked time sailing from place to place, enjoying amazing food and sites. Following sailing we started our Western Crossing Tour; we did camping. Was awesome, highly recommend camping; as food was 5-star, accommodation venues were excellent and saved a lot of money by camping.
