    I did the Ultimate Aussie Adventure starting Sydney finishing Melbourne for 29 days my tour was from the 8th of October and finished 5th Nov. It was an amazing month, went by so fast! The first 2 weeks was on the East Coast of Australia from Sydney to Cairns, we had Anthony as our trip Leader and BB (Big Blake) as the Bus Driver. The coach was great had Air con, usb ports in the middle of the seats to charge our electronics, wi-fi (was ok as most people was using it at the same time). accommodation was fine, my favourite hotels were the Vibe hotel in Surfers Paradise ( clean, has bathroom and balcony view) & the Mantra hotel in Airlie beach ( clean, has bathroom and the beds were super comfy). Anthony was amazing knows what he's doing, knowledgable, organised, reliable and most of all hilarious :D Our group was great we had 21 people (5 M & 16 F) then when we arrived to brisbane 1 M got off and we picked up 6 F, then we had 22 people. then when we got to Airlie beach we picked up 3 more people ( a couple and a girl) so we had 25 people and 1 girl got off at magnetic island. oh also it did rain some days, and we were lucky it cleared up sometimes, but oh well what can you do. My 3rd week was spent in the great Outback, had an internal flight which was on Top Deck, flew from Cairns (picked up with a transfer from the hostel to airport) to Alice Springs with Qantas and breakfast was included, and from the airport we had a transfer to our accommodation (Ibis Styles) which was good. I had Pete as my bus/tour leader for the week, he's nice & knowledgable. our group had around 20 something people and our bus was ok it just had air con. when we did the hikes for Uluru, kata Tjuta and kings canyon we woke up early about 5am unless your with Lisa for that week otherwise you'd wake up earlier Lol. My Last week was with Lisa as our Bus/tour guide, she was great; funny; organised. Drove from Alice Springs through South Australia and finished in Melbourne, bus was same like Pete's but Lisa's bus had reclining seats! :D and our group was great just had 12 people. and accommodation was fine. Was sad to say goodbye as we spent great time being around each other and i did awesome activities through out the whole month. money was well worth it (as there was specials on when i went to book my trip) meant to be haha :) and i shall continue travelling with Top Deck cant wait next year for my Europe trip! :D #LoyalTopDecker

    I wasn't on the ultimate Aussie adventure which started in Melbourne, went up to alicesprings then over to cairns, and ended in Sydney. The whole trip was amazing!!! I had the best time met loads of new people and learn a whole load of new information. It was defiently worth the price and the accommodation was good enough. The east coast part was beautiful, amazing views and accommodation. The islands were just amazing. Everyone got on and had a good laugh. Squatter and Stacey were always around for help and didn't mind helping. Had so much fun with them both and everyone else on. I will defieblty recommend topdeck especially this tour to friends and family back home

    This tour was amazing and I would do it again anytime! Especially on the east coast we did so many things I would have never done by myself and saw so many beautiful places - it exceeded my expectations. The drivers/guides were awesome and did everything to make this a great trip.
