Fabulous Discover South Australia Tour with Bunnik.   , NSW, Australia, Sep 2022
We were most pleased to have Marion as our tour leader. She is a lovely lady. The coach drivers on the mainland and on Kangaroo Island were very cheerful and helpful and had many interesting and informative things to tell us about the places we visited. Our tour was fortunate to have good weather 95% of the time. Beautiful and interesting wine-producing ...read more areas, insight into barrel making, and lots of wine tasting at famous wineries.

Fabulous scenery on Kangaroo Island and the Flinders Ranges and fortunate to see Rock Wallabies frolicking in a canyon in Wilpen Pound. The accommodation was of a high standard and all provided meals were good to excellent except on Kangaroo Island where the first breakfast was delayed for over half an hour for several of our group and the packed lunch of very poor standard. Also, I would have preferred lodgings on Kangaroo Island to be at a place where we could purchase a meal from a fast food place rather than being forced to pay the high prices at our hotel.
Outback Adventure     , QLD, Australia, Sep 2022
The tour was organised exceptionally well, we had a fantastic time. Thank you Tracey for all your help, you made it stress free. Will definitely book through Global Journeys again.
Gems of South Australia   , WA, Australia, Aug 2022
Wonderful Tour leader and coach drivers. A mix of ages from 38 plus. All Australian this time around. I am not really a wine drinker and maybe had one too many wineries for my liking. Kangaroo Island was amazing and favourite among most of us. Adelaide, wineries and Victoria Habour all beautiful Scenes and as we drove around. Accommodation was of a ...read more mixed rating, Remembering Kangaroo Island is still recovering from fires was of a lower standard but still quite good and the staff their were more than helpful, Walking distance to small amount of places to get a coffee or a place to eat. Advice if you go in August - layers, coats, beanies, raincoat. Really cold most days but still a wonderful holiday.
Wonderful tour of Central Australia     , QLD, Australia, Aug 2022
This was a great itinerary, allowing us to see many of the outback's natural beauty and scenery, at our leisure. There were so many highlights throughout this tour, but special mention of the scenic flight over Lake Eyre and the helicopter over the Lost City in the Lorella Springs Wilderness Park. The accommodation and meals quality ranged from 5 star ...read more to lower, depending on the remoteness of the locations. However this was to be expected in some areas. August was a good time to visit, as the days were not too hot, especially when heading north. It was chilly in the early mornings and evenings, in the south and central parts, but we were advised about that.

We were lucky with a good mix of fellow passengers who got along very well. The duffle bags provided by APT made it easy for everyone to pack their luggage neatly into, as well as transport to and from the bus. A top job by our APT tour team (Tony and Linda Goodlet) with their easy style of interaction as well as being well organised, genuinely friendly and knowledgeable. We would have no hesitation in recommending APT tours to everyone.

Thank you to Tracey Standing from Global Journeys for your professionalism and helpfullness throughout the process of booking our holiday and keeping us up to date along the way. Our booking started with you over 2 years ago during the difficult covid lockdowns, when we were supposed to be travelling to Canada/Alaska. Our Central Australia tour was wonderful and we are still keen on booking the Canada/Alaska tour with you, when hopefully the world settles down.
