- QLD, Australia Sep 2017 3 Helpful Votes

This tour was fantastic. It was a big group but that didn't matter. Every city we visited had something unique and interesting about it. It took a while before we saw some really good fall colour but when we did we couldn't stop being amazed by it. The accommodation was mostly amazing, as were the meals. Our tour guide, Lisa was one of the most amazing tour guides we have ever had. She took great care of us and was very knowledgeable. We highly recommend this tour.
