EXPLORE THE BEAUTY OF OCEANIA

Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific Islands offer a great opportunity to get off the beaten track. The wide range of cultural and adventure holidays available include historic and cultural tours, beaches and water sports, deserts safaris, rainforests, mountain treks and so much more.

A trip to the land Down Under offers a fantastic opportunity to experience a wide and diverse range of activities. Its rich cultural heritage, stunning natural environment, unique wildlife and welcoming people all combine to make it the perfect holiday destination. For those interested in a more active getaway there is plenty to do, from extreme sports to gentle walks. Australia has some of the best diving in the World - in particular along the Great Barrier Reef - as well as 4x4 desert adventures into the unforgiving Outback and treks into the steamy jungles of Queensland. New Zealand is a mecca for adrenaline junkies everywhere, with bungee jumping, canyoning, skiing, rafting and tramping high on the list. For those more interested in a less physically challenging holiday there is plenty to keep you busy visiting famous vineyards, museums and cosmopolitan cities and learning about the history of this fascinating region.

TOUR REVIEWS Oceania

Very efficient, helpful and knowledgeable. Great tour company, would 100% recommend this tour to other. Felt safe in Egypt the whole time!
Very efficient, helpful and knowledgeable tour leaders and guides, we learnthink alot!! Loved.our tour, we wished we had booked a longer tour though as we loved Egypt so much! Would 100% recommend this tour to others. Felt safe in Egypt the whole time!

Very efficient service, easy to book and answered all our questions and concerns thoroughly. Simple to book and good price. Changed suggestions to suit our needs and checked at each hotel that the booking we requested (2 joining rooms) was actually made in reality. Good introductory overview of Egypt on first morning too.
The welcome agent and drivers were excellent in Egypt. The Egyptologist guides superb, especially with including our two children, aged 7 and 9 years. We had a private family tour as went March 2014 when few tourists were visiting Egypt but found everywhere safe and everyone so friendly.

Everything went really smoothly on the booking end and on the ground in Egypt. The only surprise was when arriving jet lagged at the hotel being presented with a list of fees that needed to be paid right then. The problem was that everything up until then had these fees in US dollars and now the fees were in Egyptian pounds. It pretty much cleaned out our stash of Egyptian money. Had we known we had to pay in Egyptian currency we would have sought out additional currencies places at home to get us the funds we needed. (Banks wouldn't order the funds). However after that the tour itself was great. Our guide Emad did a great job.
This was a great way to see all the primary historical sites in Egypt efficiently and with ease. I can't imagine how slow and difficult it would have been otherwise. It was also a good jumping off point to then spend a few weeks on or own seeing other parts of the country and focus on modern day Egypt

The transactions and communications were all very smooth. Except that the tme i reached Morocco and tried to call the guide that was originally assigned were to no avail. The handphone number provided by admin were not correct. Anyway the guide who met us, Idris, was splendid throughout the trip! He made our trip an exciting one!
Mersmerised by the beauty of Morroccan history and landscape! All captured through my lenses and shared to all my friends and circle. Now, more want to experience the wonderful journey I made through the deserts and mountains of Morocco and the Moroccan people.

Was pleasantly surprised at how organised the tour was. There was only one occasion where the hotel was changed and was not completely satisfactory. All communication was promptly answered and dealt with in a competent manner.
Loved the tour and thought we experienced the best Turkey had to offer. At times would have liked just a little bit more time to explore at our own leisure. Particularly would have like to have stayed closer into the township of Cannakkale .
