    2.0 - Rather poor

    I'm not a picky traveler and I don't need luxury but this tour was BUDGET and not accurately described. Accommodations were BASIC and mostly in the hostel category even though it was advertised as a mix of hotels/lodges... Backpackers resorts are not "resorts." Someone claimed to have found bedbugs in one of the places. In some of the places showers were only a drip and toilet paper and soap was missing in the bathrooms. When you share a room with 4 people in the summer air conditioning is a must and this was not always the case. Also if staying in a multi-share 2 nights the bathrooms should be cleaned once per day. To be fair there were about 3 nights out of 20 where we stayed in nice hotels. Wifi was almost always extra money and could have at least been negotiated in the rate. Food - The tour advertises that vegetarian and vegan options are included. Sure this was true but the meals are hardly balanced. "Breakfast included" sometimes means cold cereal and not enough bananas for everyone. One breakfast was what they passed out on the plane!! It was often a relief when dinner was not included, at least it would be good! To make this even more disgusting there were some occasions where we had to wash our own dishes with no soap or sponges (using our hands) this is completely DISGUSTING and unsanitary!! Furthermore we had a lot of free time and the itinerary was also not as advertised. For example "walking tour of Brisbane" was about a 10 minute walk with our guide that ended at a mall where he recommended us where to get lunch (at our own expense.) We also had a lot of free time because many activities were at an additional charge. In my opinion there were not enough tour guides to handle the large groups (1 per 35 people and a bus driver), they can't do everything. One thing was right, the tour-guides were awesome! People that are in their 20's may not complain much but for anyone in their 30's this trip is completely UN-acceptable and overpriced for the quality of what you get.

    4.0 - Good

    This is the tour for you that what both a cultural and social holiday. The trip is a good mixture of once in a life time experiences and also fun and games in the night time. You get to see most of what Australia's east coast got to offer. Beautiful and mind blowing scenery and nature - and the world's most friendly people. What the trip misses is the real outback experiance. You will visit Alice Sping and the area around Aires Rock - but you will miss out of real outback Australia.
