The Tour Director Dave was excellent very caring with all of us and very knowledgeable as well as Brett our driver. The places we stayed at were great and the tour was great very pretty.

“Will definitely travel with AAT Kings again”
- Australia Jan 2014

A great tour, of the east coast of Tasmania. Our tour guide, Greg was excellent, knowledgable and took care of all our travel arrangements with ease and in an organised manner. Global journeys were prompt in replying to email requests and organised the trip well. I will definitely travel with AAT Kings again.

“Overall a very enjoyable time”
- Australia Oct 2013

Excellent accommodation in Launceston and Hobart, others acceptable. Sites visited were excellent and informative, except Mona which I found objectionable. Coach, Driver and Tour Director superb. Overall a very enjoyable time.

She is certainly an asset to AAT Kings. Further the skills of the driver were superb getting that huge vehicle through not so good roads...read more
