Great Trip & Value fior Money   0 , VIC, Australia, May 2024
This trip was quite a pacey one. Well organised and filled with lots of interactive activities. The sushi & noodle making classes were most enjoyable together with calligraphy classes, paper making and visits to sumo exhibition, samurai & tea making exhibitions. So much to see and do. The people in Japan are very welcoming and the tour guide was very

Amazing Adventure   0 , QLD, Australia, May 2024
Bunnik thought of everything. The small group of 20 was a very good way to travel; the accommodation was better than expected for 3 to 4 star rating; the tour guide was knowledgeable, professional and personable; the balance between guided tours and free time worked extremely well; the “special experiences” during the tour added to the enjoyment and ...read more the country side and cities/towns were spectacular.
A tour filled with contrasts   0 , NSW, Australia, May 2024
This was an enjoyable tour filled with interesting places, some lovely towns and villages, and great food. The weather was mainly cool with some rain at times. The itinerary was sometimes packed and rushed as there was so much to see. Our driver was outstanding. All in all, a very good tour. Global Journeys provided its usual efficient and friendly ...read more service through Hannah.
Amazing Andalucia   0 , NSW, Australia, Apr 2024
Fabulous (new) tour. Wonderful places everywhere we went. Outstanding tour leader, Antonio, who brought enthusiasm, knowledge, passion and great leadership qualities which enhanced the experience. The small, delightful group was such good company. As usual, the Global Journeys booking experience provided by Hannah was smooth and timely.
Japan Discovery Tour     0 , VIC, Australia, Mar 2024
Global Journeys were very efficient and kept the paperwork up to date all the way to embarkation. Itinerary: (Not sure if this is Bunnik's area). A visit to Tokyo tower could be included. The paragraph describing Hiroshima - Sat 30 March - was out of chronological order. This caused people to use their free day Friday 29 March to make their own way ...read more to the Bamboo forest because it was not noticed further down the itinerary Saturday 30 March.

Tips: Take lots of socks in case it is raining when you have to take shoes off and on. Take slip on shoes. Pack an umbrella. Use Google Interpreter to help with language.

One trip highlight was seeing Mt Fuji because we struck very cold, wet, cloudy weather. Our group thought we would miss out but the weather cleared and there it was . Beautiful. Loved the Alps and ryokan. Blossoms were not out in Tokyo but were in Hiroshima and Osaka. Thought we were going to be unlucky but we saw some beautiful blooms. Also the castles and temples were lovely. Japanese people so polite and friendly. Thanks to our guide a lost shoulder bag and all contents was located and sent on to hotel in a day or two. Cities clean, quiet and orderly. Food interesting! Amazing toilets! Our tour was fast paced and the guide was excellent. 18 people in group, all well travelled and fun. We certainly had a great trip.
In-depth tour of Tasmania     0 , WA, Australia, Mar 2024
I had a fabulous time on the small group Bunnik tour of Tasmania. We were lucky to have had only 10 people!

Fun, friendly tour with gorgeous scenery   0 , Ontario, Canada, Feb 2024
We had a great time exploring Tasmania with Bunnik. The guide and driver, Paul and Kerry, were fantastic. Kind, funny, and professional. We had amazing weather in February and saw many beautiful places. Having a 20-person group with a full-sized coach was awesome. The coach itself was also very roomy and comfortable--lots of leg room, USB chargers, ...read more etc. We'd happily travel with Bunnik again!
Highlights of Jordan and Egypt Review   0 , NSW, Australia, Nov 2023
A great adventure for in depth ancient history buffs of Jordan and Egypt.

The tour guides were locals, confident, experienced, very knowledgeable, friendly, helpful and well organised, always conscious of our safety and well being. They told us what pitfalls to be aware of when shopping and touring. However, often, there was information overload, ...read more leaving insufficient time for exploring, which was quite disappointing, especially, for many, this was a bucket list destination.

The tour in Jordan was enjoyable with its varied activities. However, that in Egypt was heavily concentrated on rushing to visit as many tombs as possible, so we soon became “tombed”out. A more leisurely pace with time to enjoy some of the beautiful hotels on the Nile and an exploration of modern Egypt would have created a more enjoyable experience.

The accommodation was a mixture of very modern exclusive hotels, some bygone ones in the process of being renovated and one unwelcoming, very basic, old Wadi Rum “glamp”. Thank goodness for the lovely, modern Movenpick cruise boat which softened the blow, with its wonderful crew and experienced chefs!

The variety of foods was an experience, a mixture of delicious to wanting, as in Wadi Rum where you couldn’t even have toast! Often, dishes were comparatively very salty and heavily spiced, just how the locals like it?

The Bunnik tour was pricey for such inconsistent accommodation and food options but we felt very safe, well looked after and happy to be with a small group of lovely easy going Aussie fellow travellers. You will have fun, if you are willing to go with the flow.

To stay well, don’t eat the salad, even in five star hotels, or use ice and always use bottled water, even for brushing your teeth! This was made easy with Bunnik providing an endless supply of complimentary bottled, water!

Lastly, I must commend Global Journeys and Bunnik for their professional and dedicated staff, who are always happy to answer our questions and concerns.

Bunnik Small Group Touring
Bunnik Small Group Touring

When Marion Bunnik started Bunnik Tours, Australia didn't need another tour company - it needed a better way of touring! In an industry dominated by large multinationals and mass tourism, Bunnik Tours stands alone. Our aim is simple, to provide a better way for Australians to see the world. As a family business we understand that our family's name and reputation is at stake every time we sell a holiday. That's why we're proud to call these tours our own.

Bunnik's maximum group size is just 20, and even less for some tours in Asia & Africa. For us small groups make for a better holiday experience. They are more personal and you spend less time waiting and more time enjoying your holiday. Small groups are better for sustainability too! We get to visit smaller local businesses on our travels and stay in smaller centrally-located properties which are often impractical for large groups.

Return International Flights Included!
Return International Flights Included!

For Bunnik, it's all about providing you with flexibility to create your dream holiday which is why they provide both small group tours that include international airfares from Australia as well as land only small group tours. Their airfares have built-in flexibility so you're able to extend your stay, fly in or out of other cities or upgrade your flights to business or first class.

For tours where return international airfares have not been included, chat to our friendly Global Journeys Travel Advisors for the best advice. We have access to some fantastic fares.

Unique Local Experiences
Unique Local Experiences

Small group touring is about being shown around by locals and really capturing the essence of the destination. It means seeing the famous attractions but also wandering off the tourist trail. So much more than just a coach tour, you'll experience the culture, meet the locals and savour the wonderful food.

That's why we also include a range of experiences designed to capture the essence of the places we visit. Experiences like enjoying lunch with a local family in a small rural village in Sri Lanka, making Pizza in Sorrento, Italy, travelling by traditional style boats or exploring the deserts of India, Jordan and Morocco by camel!

Bunnik Tour FAQ's Frequently asked questions for those considering travelling with Bunnik Tours

What are the average ages of people travelling on a Bunnik Tour?

Bunnik group tours have been specifically designed for 'the not too young and not too old'. There are lots of tour companies out there catering for the younger party crowd or the older traveller so we like to think of our tours as being for the forgotten age group in between, that's people aged 45-65. However, we have many people enjoying our tours who are younger than 45 and older than 65. So you'll find we never discriminate on the basis of age. Please note though passengers over 70 will be required to obtain a doctors clearance before travelling.

Can I bring my children on tour with me?

Children aged 14 and over can travel on our group tours.

You say all your tours operate in small groups, what are the group sizes?

Group size is important when travelling. Small groups mean less time waiting and more time enjoying your holiday. For our 2017 season we've limited group sizes to a maximum of 20 across all our small group tours. Some regions like Africa offer even smaller groups of 12.

What standard of hotels do you use on your tours?

On our tours we use good quality 3-4 star hotels. However, rather than concentrate solely on star ratings and creature comforts we choose our hotels based on the following criteria: cleanliness, great service, atmosphere and location.

What type of transport does Bunnik use?

Expect plenty of variety as you explore the world with Bunnik Tours. You'll travel on elephants in India and Thailand and on traditional boats in the Amazon, Egypt and Turkey. While in other parts of the world, we use the most amazing collection of jeeps, old Chevys, cyclos and rickshaws. At last count we offered more than 10 completely different train experiences, including Japan's exhilarating bullet train. Yes, our mini-busses and coaches are clean and air-conditioned, but we think you'll enjoy everything else so much more.

I am a single traveller, am I still able to travel on one of your group tours?

Single travellers are welcome on all Bunniks tours and make up a fair number of passengers. You can choose to have a single room and pay a single supplement or you can ask us to match you up with another traveller of the same gender and pay just the twin-share rate.

On some of your tours you have a tipping made easy program how does this work?

In many parts of the world tipping is a customary practice and often makes up a large part of people's wages so it's important to get it right. Our tipping made easy program is a simple system that sees us collect tips at time of booking. We then pay these tips to our local staff and they take care of all the tips. Easy! Please note on tours where 'tipping made easy' operates it is compulsory that all tour members participate.

The tour I am interested in doesn't have tipping made easy, it says tips are payable locally what does this mean?

On tours where tipping made easy doesn't apply we advise you how much you should allow for tips, which should be paid in the local currency. If you are unsure how much or who to tip we suggest you refer to your documentation as a suggested tipping list is included.

Are Bunnik tours escorted from Australia?

Bunnik tours are not escorted from Australia. You will be met on arrival at your destination by local guides and your tour will begin from there.

Airfares are included in the cost of some of your tours, but what airlines do you use?

Bunnik use several different airlines depending on the destination. These include Singapore Airlines, Qantas, Qatar, Emirates and LATAM.

Is it possible to book a Bunnik Tour if flights have already been booked or are not required?

Certainly. Even if the tour you're interested in includes airfares, we will also have a 'Land Only' price which excludes the airfares. Please let your Global Journeys Travel Advisor know the preferred tour and departure date and we will be able to advise the 'Land Only' price. Please note that as with all our tours, land only pricing is also subject to seasonality.

Can flights be upgraded to premium economy, business class or first class?

Yes, of course. For tours that already include airfares we will just add a supplement amount to the invoice for the upgrade which will be due in addition to and at the same time as the progress payment.

Can seats be booked on the flights?

All airlines have different policies on seating. If you're booking a tour that includes airfares, please ask your Travel Advisor if the flight booking is eligible to pre-select seating. Some airlines charge a fee for this, which can be done on the airline’s website once the flights have been ticketed.

Is it possible to use a different airline or make changes to the flight itinerary when a tour includes flight costs?

We can book any airline, any dates and any itinerary to fit with other travel arrangements. There may be a difference between the fare booked compared to what is included with the tour (if applicable), so a supplement may apply. Please keep in mind that some airlines have shorter holding times so the progress payment may be brought forward to coincide with the deadline provided by the airline.

Can frequent flyer points be used to book flights?

Yes, points can be used to book flights, however this needs to be done directly with the airline. We can then make a ‘Land Only’ booking. Please double check the tour dates with your travel advisor as the ‘Land Only’ dates can sometimes be different to the normal tour dates.

Bunnik Tours begin at the destination airport of your tour. Tours are not escorted from Australia, however flights to & from Australia are included in the listed prices. You will be met on arrival at your destination by local guides and your tour will begin from there.
