“We were pleasantly surprised by this tour, our CEO was fantastic and we had a great time. The transport and Accomodation was first class and even though we were the oldest on our tour it did not present a problem. Can't thank our CEO Fahar enough for making this a fabu;ous trip.”

“The Sydney to Brisbane trip was fantastic. Our guide was absolutely terrific even with the slight change of plans due to the storms passing through Tamworth or the bush fires devastating large regions of NSW. There was a mix of slow and fast paced days, some cultural exposure along with some coastal beach life. I would recommend people doing the longer Sydney to Cairns trip (or even through Melbourne) if they have the time.”
