Oceania

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

Excellent, prompt responses to any e mail enquiries, as well as efficient service over the phone when I was considering making the booking. Documents e mailed out as required.
A fabulous trip. Wonderful experience being part of a small group touring a truly amazing country. Sami, our guide, was fantastic - superb knowledge, delivered in a fun and relaxed style. A really outstanding, memorable trip.


The tour well and truly exceeded our expectations. Credit definitely needs to be given to Prakesh, our guide, who was very knowledgable, funny and a pleasure to spend two weeks with. Ishwor, our porter, was also great! We had the time of our lives :-)

Great tour and good help and quick response from the office. .
It was really good and loved the trip to the village where no other tourists go. The tour guide gave us a real Morrocan flavour. A map of Marrakech and also of the tour route would be a great welcome touch.

We were very lucky there was only one other couple who were very nice and our guide was excellent. His name was Phuong. He had a lot of knowledge, put it over very well and was very concerned that we were all happy and always went out of his way to help and did 'the extra mile'. He really made the holiday so good
We thought it was a good tour but did not particularly enjoy the two full days at the seaside. It could have been cut back to one. We did enjoy the snorkeling and swimming. We would have also liked an extra day at Hulong Bay as it is a long journey each way and we barely had 24 hours there. Everyone was very pleasant and helpful in the tours and hotels

I liked the fact we were met at the airport and helped thru customs and getting a visa and then upon leaving taken to where we needed to go. Its always tough to figure out where everything is in a foreign airport when you do not travel much
We had a wonderful time and great memories. We felt safe the whole time and would recommend this trip to anyone of any age as long as you can walk a lot. They are with you from arrival to departure and any problems that arose the guides would try their best to solve. They also showed remarkable patience for other people in other groups we saw that were acting like idiots.
