    The trip itself was amazing.. accommodation was great.. definitely ticked loads of the bucket list. Bus driver was lovely. Transportation was comfortable.. did not find tour guide helpful she picked who she wanted to help and everyone else could do what they liked she didn't care

    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.

    Trys made my time in Australia, this was my first time going abroad by myself and Trys made it so easy and ensured I made friends and had the best time! Trys always made sure people were included and able to experience as much as possible no matter how long they had! Trys has inspired me to carry on seeing the world as he made me realise how easy it can be and unfortunately he's frequent saying that 'you can always get more money' has stuck with me and I am excited to see many other places!!

    I booked this trip with 3 weeks to go before it started I had done little to no research and went on a very spontaneous trip with no expectations or ideas of what to expect. When I arrived at the hotel where I met the rest of the group and leader (Trys) (as I joined after the tour had already started) I felt comfortable and it put me at ease after travelling half way around the world on my own for the first time. even though I had no expectations for the trip everything I experienced far exceeded anything I could have expected. i decided on a skydive just the night before and I have Trys to thank for talking me in to that as I know without his assurance I probably would have backed out. I experienced some amazing moments when I couldn't quite believe I was there doing what I was doing at those moments. I met some amazing people and made some friends for life even though they are based all around the world. The only thing I would have changed is to make the trip longer I didn't want to leave and sure have thought about returning on many occasions. I can't however imagine doing the trip without the same people (friends and tour guide) and I have them all to thank for such an amazing life experience.

    This trip was a once in a lifetime trip. I will always remember it. It was very well organized and prepared. Our bus was great! Our drivers name was Horse. He was an excellent driver and got us where we needed to be with ease, every single day. The accommodations were better than I had imagined. Some places were nicer than others, but the different places we stayed were all part of the trip. I particularly enjoyed the Farm Stay. It was a nice opportunity to get to know everyone on tour better. Our manager was Trys Eddy. He was amazing. Trys was a fun loving, exciting, very knowledgable tour manager. He had awesome games for our long bus trips. Helped to break the ice big time! He knew how to make us laugh, that's for sure! He knew the best little places to go when we stopped. For example, in Byron Bay there is a place to get chicken burgers. And oh my god... Best chicken burger I've ever had! His passion for photography did not go unnoticed either. He helped capture memories for us that will last a lifetime. I am a better person for taking this trip, and for meeting Trys. I feel very lucky to have had this opportunity. I would recommend this tour a million times!

    The trip was amazing and everything that I wanted out of travelling the east coast. You have some amazing opportunities to do some once in a life time things like climb the harbour bridge. Our tour manager was amazing. He made an effort with each individual person on the trip and made sure that we were all having fun. At the end of the trip my friend had to go to hospital and he made sure that I was being looked after and went out of his way to do things for us which was such a big help, I wouldn't of known what to do without him. Overall a really fantastic trip that I will never forget.

All the small things make the big things, he was always full of knowledge and told us great history stories. Very nice and very very organised! I was lucky to spend the last of his tours with him! And it defiantly opened my eyes to doing more and traveling more! #NOREGRETS :)
