Gulf Savannah Wanderer     0 , ACT, Australia, Aug 2023
A very comfortable way to see an historic part of Australia that sits in our collective memory. Wild life, amazing scenery, vast open vistas, big sky’s, amazing sunsets experienced with a small group of like minded travellers. Easy travelling that is well organised and thoughtfully paced. Every day with a new experience. Some allowance is required for ...read more rustic accommodation still getting back to business after floods and staffing shortages. All up small allowances for an otherwise excellent travel experience. Highly recommended.
Untamed Kimberley & West Coast   0 , NSW, Australia, Aug 2023
Great tour from Darwin to Perth with AAT Kings. Small group on a large coach allowed plenty of room for everyone. Delma, the Tour Director and Rhys, the Bus Driver were very professional, provided lots of information of the areas we visited and ensured all had a wonderful time. Nothing was to much trouble. We were fortunate to have a great group ...read more of traveller's that were friendly and punctual so there were no travel delays.
Untamed Kimberley   1 , SA, Australia, Jul 2023
A great tour of a rather remote part of Australia...a great tour to do it if, like us, you are not 4WD travellers. Well structured and organised by AAT Kings. Emma Gorge glamping was a particular highlight for us...Optional extras also a must...fly in fly out to the Bungle Bungles and all day Horizontal fall tour incorporating Aquaplane, fast boat Cyclone ...read more Creek cruise ,fly over Dampier Peninsula Islands and Aqua Hatchery and Cygnet Creek too. You may never get the chance again! Full on days but fabulous and of a high standard all round.
All aspects of our trip to Uluru were fantastic.   0 , VIC, Australia, Mar 2023
All aspects of our trip to Uluru were fantastic. The service provided by our travel Consultant Hannah was excellent, especially as we were initially not able to get a booking for the Sounds of Silence dinner. Hannah kept in touch with Voyager for cancellations and was able to get us booked in for the dinner around 1 week before departure.

The accommodation ...read more at Sails in the Desert was beyond what we were expecting and was simply first class. All of our tours operated by AAT Kings were great experiences and they really have some great people operating as their bus drivers and tour guides. One driver that went way beyond our expectations was Will and he made our three journeys with him as our driver exceptional. We will certainly be travelling back to Uluru again.
Perfect Tasmania   0 , WA, Australia, Mar 2023
We had a really lovely holiday in Tasmania. The Tour Director and Driver Guide were very knowledgeable and more than willing to share this knowledge with all of us. The weather was pretty good, cool at times but Tasmania is like that. We only had really solid rain in Cradle Mountain, so we did not get to see it. Photos assured us that it was there! ...read more All the accommodation was top class as were the meals which were provided. My husband celebrated his birthday on this trip and everyone made it an occasion to remember. The only criticism I would offer would be the lack of name badges. It's not easy to remember 40+ names every day and badges would have been a real help here.
Great Trip of Tassie   0 , NSW, Australia, Mar 2023
Very happy travelling with AAT, the tour guide and driver were both excellent at their jobs. The 10 day itinerary was a very full, we covered a lot of places, which was good but next time I probably would go for a more relaxed itinerary where we could spend a bit more time in each place. It was very early morning starts and very full days. We did have ...read more a couple of afternoons and nights as free time which were great just to chill. Good mix of people on the trip and accommodation and majority of meals were all very good.
Global Journeys were great to book through, all very easy and all documents and relevant information were emailed, extra accommodation etc booked and any questions were answered promptly by Toni. Would definitely book through them again.
AAT Kings Tasmania   0 , New Zealand, Mar 2023
Rachael did a great job in organising everything for us and we had a thoroughly good 11 days. Sadly some of the folk got Covid which rather put a dampener on things but it didn't stop us healthy ones from enjoying ourselves. Our Tour guide was amazing and being born there she had a great deal of knowledge which we would never have found out if we ...read more had been tripping around on our own. Also our driver was amazing. He could get that darn bus around some of the tightest corners and into some of the smallest parking spots. Our accommodation throughout the tour was great and would most certainly come through Global Journeys if and when we want to visit Australia again.
Tasmanian Wonders Tour   0 , NSW, Australia, Dec 2022
I enjoyed the tour and felt we saw the most interesting and scenic areas of the island. I have a good understanding of the way people live, and the industries that support them. The convict and colonial history of the island is incredible, and having seen the area around the Gordon River am extremely grateful for the successful blocking of the attempt ...read more to dam the Franklin River. I thought the standard of some of the hotel rooms was not good enough, with some air conditioners and lights not working, and having to hunt for power points to charge my phone and camera overnight. The irons in the rooms were cheap and flimsy - if they're provided they should be of a decent standard . I was disappointed at the end of the tour when lack of supervision of a passenger with obvious health issues caused me to bring home something that ruined my Christmas. Overall I enjoyed the tour, but will ensure in future that my expectations of the tour director's responsibilities are not unrealistic.
