“Dalmatia Coast was more interesting and varied than expected”
Trip:    Overall Rating: 4/5
One negative, was lack of information about flight Options. Itinerary provided at last minute indicated only option via Heathrow which added almost a days flight time on both legs. As new Bunnik travellers we were not informed regarding alternative options. We were highly delighted with the tour and considered our tour guide instrumental in achieving a really positive experience. A great time had by all.

“Wonderful Bunnicks Trip”
Trip:    Overall Rating: 5/5
After many years of being independent travellers this was our first experience with group travel via the 21 day Bunnik tour of Northern Italy, Slovenia and Croatia. We loved it for a variety of reasons including the great variety of activities covering both city and rural/parks locations - and varying from visiting churches to a pizza and gelato luncheon. We had an excellent guide for the land based travel and good quality accommodation and coach.

Bunnik took all the stress out of travelling between different cities with a great group of fellow travellers which added to the fun and a good balance between organised activities and free time.

As a swimmer the tour provided plenty of time and opportunities fro swimming around the Adriatic as well.

For the two weeks of land based touring Andre and the guide and Robert the driver were excellent - very informative and could not do enough for the travellers. a tribute to their efforts was that the tour group contributed a tip despite Bunniks already having made such a payment. Unfortunately the tour guide for the cruise based activities, Jan was not so good. Very laid back and the only time he showed any enthusiasm was when seeking a tip at the end of the cruise. Would not rate him.

Some of the city tours, particularly when visiting churches went into to much detail but overall the individual city/park guides were of a very high standard (particularly the guide in Split). We would definitely look at a Bunniks tour for future international travel.

“Hassle free holiday”
Trip:    Overall Rating: 4/5
There were only 5 of us travelling from Kuching and finishing in Kota Kinabalu. We were all very experienced travellers who got on well for the 17 days. We had local guides who were impressed by our questions and curiosity about Sarawak and Sabah. We all felt that the people of Malaysian Borneo were friendly and happy.

The people of Brunei were the same and the mosques we visited in Bandar Seri Begawan were most impressive.
I would liked to have tasted more variety in the food especially in the river resorts. Seeing the orangutans and sun bears was interesting and the river cruises enabled us to see the animals in the wild.

We visited the war memorials set up in memory of the soldiers who died in the Sandakan death marches at the end of WW2. This will be a lasting memory. It was a truly interesting holiday, one which we all enjoyed immensely.

“Wow what a trip!”
Trip:    Overall Rating: 5/5
Wow what a trip. Morocco was nothing like I imagined. I believe our local guide showed us the real Morocco and much more. A fascinating country and so varied. This part of the tour felt like an adventure. Using different modes of transport in this tour was a great idea, comfortable roomy bus travel, driving across the desert in 4wd drives, travelling across the Gibraltar Strait to Spain on a Tassie built ferry and the fast train rides.

The Spain part of the tour felt like a fabulous holiday. Our guide was so efficient and calm it was soothing and relaxing travelling with him. He showed us how to enjoy Spain, the food, the places and the people whilst imparting a wealth of knowledge to us. He also gave us great information about our after tour stay. The cooking sessions were brilliant but even better eating the results afterwards at our exclusive dining experiences.

I visited many places on this tour that I would never have found on my own. The unseen bonus of a tour like this is the people you meet that you never forget. I thoroughly enjoyed the Bunnik tour and would sign up for one again any day.

“A fantastic tour of Japan that covers a lot of cultural experiences”
Trip:    Overall Rating: 5/5
We really enjoyed our tour during Cherry Blossom time - seeing wonderful Japanese scenery, temples and gardens, all with magnificent weather. This tour also provided us with many Japanese experiences, such as lunch with Sumos, a traditional tea ceremony in a Japanese teahouse, a vegetarian lunch in a mountain top Buddhist Sanctuary, saki tasting in the charming sake brewing district of Kyoto, dressed up in a Kimono, saw a Geisha performance, made sushi, did 7 bullet train trips, caught a ferry over to the island of Miyajima Island, caught a gondola to see the sulphur fields near Mt Fuji, visited the UNESCO village of Shirakawago with its steep thatched roofed farmhouses, stayed in the mountains in Takayama in a traditional guesthouse with hot springs. This tour covered it all.

“Japan's beautiful cherry blossoms”
Trip:    Overall Rating: 5/5
At the start of our tour in Tokyo we were greeted with the beautiful cherry blossoms in full bloom which lasted until the day we departed Osaka. A huge 'thank you' to Global Journeys and Bunnik Tours for providing such a wonderful experience. Our consultant at Global Journeys, Yvonne Brooks, provided a very transparent booking process and was available to satisfy enquiries and provide information. The inclusions provided a good overview of Japanese cuisine, customs, history and iconic structures, which were all enjoyable. Transport was by bullet train and modern, comfortable coaches, driven by very competent personnel. Accommodation was excellent, perhaps with the exception of Osaka which is probably due to the shortage of accommodation to meet demands in that city. The group of 20 Australians all mixed well and enjoyed one-another's company. We were blessed to have a wonderful tour guide, Shima Ozawa, who spoke good English and went out of her way to assist the group and individuals in any way she could. We will certainly be checking what Bunnik tours are on offer in the future.

“Japan Discovery, Cherry Blossom Tour”
Trip:    Overall Rating: 5/5
We have almost nothing but good things to say about this tour. The only small grizzle was about the number of Buddha and shrines included. Every day, "Not another one". There were things included that we would not have seen or done if we had done our own thing, and we appreciated this. Our tour guide, Kyoko, was top class. However, due to illness and accident we didn't really enjoy ourselves, (not Bunnik's fault) we are unlikely to travel again.

“Curry Heaven”
Trip:    Overall Rating: 4/5
Bunnick and Butterfly Travel were a great combination to tour Sri Lanka. You could not ask for anyone more knowledgeable and enthusiastic as our Guide. Sri Lanka is still a "third world" country but they are trying to improve - the people are friendly and hospitable. They are welcoming of travelers and realize that tourism is part of their future. The alcohol is resorts and hotels are a bit over-priced, but you could always find something to drink. The food was fantastic - if you can eat it, they curry it.

“A Taste of Sri Lanka - A perfect balance”
Trip:    Overall Rating: 5/5
The trip went very well, and Priya is an outstanding guide. I found the itinerary a perfect balance of wildlife, historical sites, cultural exposure, varying terrain, and the opportunity to see how Buddhist, Muslim and Christian communities coexist. The accommodation was excellent in every case, and the pace of the tour allowed free time, and never felt rushed or overwhelming. The food was exceptional, but perhaps just a little too many included meals, as I found I actually skipped evening meals on occasions where Priya arranged for us to stop somewhere for lunch (at our own cost) where the offering tended to be more than a snack type meal. All in all, for a lifetime solo traveller, I found the Bunnik's tour a surprisingly comfortable way to see a destination I have long wished to visit.

“Excellent holiday”
Trip:    Overall Rating: 5/5
The local tour guides we have for Jordan and Egypt were excellent, especially Mofid of Cairo. His knowledge of Egypt is exceptional and that made a lot of difference to the trip which became very interesting and informative. The tour coach were not very good, as the air conditioning was not working most of the time and the seats not very comfortable.

About Bunnik

Why you should choose to travel with Bunnik on your next holiday
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.

Small Groups of 20
Small Groups of 20

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
Return International Flights

Unlike most tour companies, Bunnik include domestic and international flights from Australia in all of our small group tour packages. Plus our 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. Anything is possible just ask Global Journeys friendly team of consultants.

Spacious & Comfortable Coaches
Spacious & Comfortable Coaches

While Bunnik's smaller groups mean you'll enjoy plenty of space on-board your coach, you can also expect plenty of variety as you explore the world with Bunnik Tours. You'll travel on camels in Egypt, 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.

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!

Comprehensive Sightseeing
Comprehensive Sightseeing

Bunnik's well-balanced itineraries are designed specifically for Australian travellers. We put great effort into getting the right balance between organised touring and free time, after all it is a holiday! We include all the essential sights that others consider "optional extras", while providing plenty of time for you to explore & discover. Our sightseeing is carefully balanced so you don't suffer 'temple overload'! For example, in Egypt we contrast the wonderful antiquities with a relaxing visit to the clear blue waters of the Red Sea, while in Turkey we take time out to enjoy a cooking class in the surreal landscape of Cappadocia. You get to truly experience a destination rather than 'ticking off' tourist sights as quickly as possible. The end result? A better holiday for you.

Bunnik FAQ's

Some of the frequently asked questions Bunnik receive from their clients
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.

Do I have to be physically fit in order to travel on a Bunnik Tour?

Bunnik tours do require a certain level of fitness and mobility. You should be able to carry your own bags as porter services are not always available at all hotels, and you should be able to walk over 2km on uneven ground and climb several flights of stairs. Passengers who are 70 and over will be required to obtain a doctor's clearance before travelling.

Airfares are included in the tour costs, but what airlines do Bunnik use?

Bunnik use a number of different airlines depending on your destination these include; Singapore Airlines, Emirates, Virgin Airlines and Lan Chile.

Can I upgrade my flights to business class or premium economy?

Yes of course. You can even choose a different airline to the default one Bunnik uses. However, please keep in mind that you will need to pay the difference in the fare you choose compared to the airfare included.

Why should I take advantage of your special airfares when so many specials are on the market?

Two reasons – our fares are special wholesale fares which are usually as competitive if not less expensive than the specials you see advertised. Secondly, if you book a tour with us and we organise the airfare, you are protected in case we need to cancel the tour for any reason (if you book a special airfare yourself and we cancel the tour, you will be charged change/cancellation fees by the airlines).

Is it possible to go on a tour if I have already organised my own flights?

Certainly, for every tour in Bunniks program they also have a land only price which excludes the airfares. Please enquire on the tour you prefer, filling in your flight requirements in the comments section, for more information.

Can I depart earlier than an advertised departure date and return home later than the tour end date?

Yes, your flights are fully flexible with the departure and return dates. You can depart from Australia earlier than the rest of the tour group and return home later after the end of the tour. Bunnik Tours is a fully licensed travel agency and apart from booking Bunnik Tours for clients we can arrange any other holiday requests for you before and after your tour. This includes; flights, accommodation, car hire, rail passes and cruises.

Why is my contact information collected when I book?

There may be times when unforeseen events beyond our control impacttravel schedules and potentially disrupt cruises, tours, or packages. These include, but are not limited to, severe weather conditions, acts of nature, and government travel advisories. Under such circumstances, it is critical that Bunnik be able to contact you immediately and reliably - including nights, weekends, and holidays - to make sure we've informed you of any possible changes to your travel.
