Outback Experience Central Australia

Had a great trip to Uluru and Alice Springs. All accommodation was as expected, comfortable and serviced. All the tours were fantastic made easy as we didn't have to drive. ATT Kings were professional and the drivers/guides were very friendly and shared their knowledge of the area. Highly recommend this tour as it covered a lot of must see places . Very special place out there in the Red Centre. Thanks to Skye for organising this trip.

Great trip organised for a Swiss Rail Pass

We had a great trip to Switzerland and an 8 day rail pass, Ben organised the accommodation and then the flight transfers to the UK. All went very well, and the whole thing was a smooth process. The only complaint is that some of the accommodation could perhaps have been closer to the main railway stations in the cities, rather than a little along in the suburbs. We had a great time and thanks heaps to Ben for his hard work.

Thanks very much Martin for such a great review. I will pass on your comments to Ben and note the point about hotel location. Thanks again.

The ultimate trip- the Canadian Rockies and a cruise to Alaska

Friends who had done this same trip recommended us to Australian Escapes and we were not disappointed. We told Ben what we thought we wanted to do and he took care of all the details, such as getting us great seats on our long flight from Brisbane to Vancouver and getting us an upgrade to a balcony stateroom on the cruise ship. No hiccups with any of the arrangements which was perfect. Thank you we appreciated your effotts on our behalf.

N.T. ADVENTURE

We have recently returned from a trip to Uluru and Alice Springs organized by Skye. We had some great tours and were very appreciative of the way Skye gave us free days to relax after the 10 hour long full day tours . Skye managed to cover all the major attractions and we had a great insight into the Red Centre. We had one hiccup where an Operator cancelled a tour but within an hour Australian Escapes had us booked on the same tour with another company.

Norfolk Island Break

Big thank you to Australian Escapes consultant Skye for organizing such an enjoyable trip to Norfolk Island for ourselves and our friends.
We enjoyed all the inclusions, learning about Norfolk history and the people, and the boys even managed a fishing trip catching a lot of big fish.
Everything was very easy for us to manage and the views over Kingston to the ocean from our accommodation were beautiful.
A very relaxing slow paced holiday.

Hassle Free Holiday on MS Nordam (Holland America)

Australian Escapes consultant Skye Bremer and Ben Brooker did a fantastic job locking us in for the arrival back on Australia Day long weekend 15 day cruise, flights from Melb to Sydney with accommodation and hotel transfers were also booked, and the experience with Jetstar was a rewarding one given we had never flown with them before. This was the first time we had used them after being members for some time as finally the stars were alined for us to go on a holiday.
The accommodation was second to none at the Intercontinental in Sydney, which was a block away from the beautiful Sydney Harbour.
The cruise was fantastic, weather was great, islands were amazing the food was great and the MS Nordam is a beautiful ship, the staff on board could not do enough to make the whole experience a great one. We visited the water falls, a fresh water lagoon, the turtle sanctuary and did our duty free shopping all in a day at Port Vila Vanuatu. This was arranged though the people we travelled with.
We had a slight hickup, where we asked for a change in flights which were supposed to leave from Tullamarine and we were given the booking to leave from Avalon, which is 200km away from where we live.
Australian Escapes kindly reimbursed us the unseen outlay for this with no hesitation.
Will determinately use them again.

Thanks very much Alex. I will pass on your comments to Skye and Ben. We're glad you enjoyed the cruise and your holiday in general - sounds like a dream trip.

Norfolk Island

We booked our trip to Norfolk Island thru Australian Escapes at a fixed price, and there were no additional fees after we made our initial booking and payment. The trip met all our expectations and we had a wonderful time.

Thanks very much for the feedback David. I hope we can be of service in the future and get you away on another complete holiday like this one to Norfolk. Thanks again.

Efficient service ,no hassels.

Consultant Alvin recommended LORHITI boutique apartments on Lord Howe Island .5 star apartments .Self catering. Slight uphill walk from town .Lots of great walks and tours. .Transport provided at no cost to and from most restaurants .Do not miss Chase n Thyme island bus tour. We have used Australian Escapes on other occasions and found them to be most courteous and efficient. The owner/managers and staff, at Lorhiti, are friendly and very helpful. We could not recommend this holiday package to anyone other than to those seeking a restful holiday.
Children are not normally provided for at Lorhiti.

Hi Alan, Thank you for the amazing review. I am happy to know that your holiday experience was very enjoyable. I can't wait to assist you again in choosing the perfect getaway. Alvin

Amazing service!

At almost the last minute we booked a two week trip to Singapore. The trip was fabulous. Everything went as planned including being met at the airport, excellent accommodation and all our travel requests being met. We had originally planned a very different holiday, but had to change our plans. Very quickly our previous plans were cancelled and a new holiday was booked. Four days before we were due to leave we received our detailed travel plans and were all ready for a wonderful holiday. Thankyou to Ben and the team.

Thanks Carly, glad you liked the service and the hotel.

No booking worries with Aust Escapes doing it all for you!

We booked flights and accommodation to Mackay for a wedding and everything went according to plan. No hiccups with flights or baggage. Accommodation was absolutely beautiful and was conveniently located to a major shopping center and restaurants so only a short walk was necessary. The hire car part of the weekend was also a seamless experience. Thank you Australian Escapes for a great experience.

UK & EUROPE

Had a great trip, did a Trafalgar Tour of the 4 countries which was fantastic. London's weather wasn't kind but accommodation was good. Train to Paris was a highlight, Eiffel Tower awesome. John, Ben & the team did a great job, helped us with a couple of problems, even though it was early morning Australian time. Thanks for making it a memorable trip.


USA Trip

All of our expectations were met, had a great time, saw lots in the time we had. The standard of the accommodation was good, the documentation was excellent, which was very helpful for first time travellers like us.


We needed so much help

We can't thank the team at Australian Escapes enough, l broke my ankle a week before flying to Ireland for daughters wedding, the Doctor would only let me fly business class. Australian escapes managed to change all my bookings in only a weeks notice they were great to deal with, at such a stressfull time. All accomadation was lovely, and the airport pick up service was a terrific. Also the help they gave me claiming insurance was very much appreciated. Would recommend them to anyone travelling l would definitely use them again. Thankyou John Skye and Ben

Thanks Kevin and Di. You certainly did have some issues and it was touch and go there at the start but you were finally able to go on your holiday, so that was a relief. Glad we could help with your travel insurance claim. Thank you for your remarks and we hope to hear from you again in the future. JG

Canadian/ USA trip

Didn't know what to expect but we started with a wow. The accommodation in Vancouver blew us away. The Wedgewood Hotel was above expectations,central,helpful, nothing a bother. The Canadian Pacific Train journey, 4 days was relaxing. Definitely a train buff holiday activity. A great way to travel the breadth of Canada from Mountains,Savannah to prairies producing world class food products..The USA tour visited Montreal and Quebec fantastic cities. Then we ventured into historic areas of USA.Washington DC, Pennsylvania, Boston, New York. So much to see so little time.Up to Niagara Falls , so coooool. Organisation of tour was thorough. Documentation was excellent. Even receptionists commented on all the details.
