Cairo to Zanzibar.Amazing!
We booked this tour rather than travelling independently as we usually do because of security issues in that part of the world. As it turned out we needn't have worried, as there were no issues anywhere we went. Our small group ended up being a threesome: my husband and I and one other lady. It was lucky we all got on well otherwise this could have spoilt the experience a little. As it was we had a fantastic time.
In Egypt we had 2 great guides-Shereen in Cairo and Hassan on the Nile cruise. Both knew their stuff and were able to bring life to...
My "Driving Miss Daisy" experience.
A Bunnik's small group tour of Egypt & Jordan I had booked, morphed into an independent, solo Jewels of Jordan tour for 8 days, through unexpected personal circumstances. Flights, hotels, site tours, and a driver were duly organised through Atlas Tours in Amman. I admit to being a tad concerned with the "Driving Miss Daisy" concept, however the entire trip was made extraordinary by the kind attention of young Yousef, my driver, not only because of his exceptional driving skills in all sorts of traffic conditions, but his care in finding me the ...best local guides at sites. 40 years age difference, but we shared many laughs. The hotels were excellent, the itinerary covered everything I had yearned to see, and I am recommending Jordan as a destination to all, be it as part of a group, independentally or solo.
Wonderful.Best ofSouth America and the Galapagos. Nov/Dec 2017
We have just returned from an amazing tour of South America and the Galapagos, our first with Bunnick. From the time of our first phone contact we were impressed with the efficiency and courtesy of all staff from the consultants in Adelaide through to our fantastic tour leader, Jesus, and the knowledgeable and pleasant local guides
The one negative aspect of this tour which covers such a huge geographical area is that it included many flights and a lot of time was spent in airports.
In most cases the places we visited and the accommodation chosen exceeded all our expectations, with many breathtaking experiences.
Fantastic Egypt in Depth tour - 16 November to 1 December 2017
Tour organisation from initial booking to finish was excellent and well-executed. The actual tour was wonderful and real value for money. Friendly responsive staff, excellent accommodation, impeccable service, safe and seamless travel, expert guides and amazing itinerary. Egypt was amazing.
Colours of Rajasthan - October 2017
This was our first tour with Bunnik Tours. The booking system was very easy & our consultant was always available, helpful and had been to India and could offer real, been there, advice. All arrangements worked perfectly. Our guide, coach driver and assistant, were wonderful - couldn’t do enough to help us. Hotels really good, itinerary excellent.in short, everything worked perfectly. Cannot speak highly enough of this company. Rajasthan is an amazing place and so worth visiting.
Japan Discovery Holiday - 4th to 20th Nov 2017
Bunnik (Japan Discovery) lived up to all expectations - small group size, diverse experiences, great accommodation and modes of transport and best of all, a fantastic tour guide - Akiko. She was a real delight, well prepared and a great source of information. I would recommend Bunnik Tours, I enjoyed a memorable holiday with "new" friends.
Japan Discovery Tour
I have just returned from a fantastic Bunnik Tour in Japan, that I booked through our local travel agent. The tour was well paced and travel was by either bus or train. Our tour guide, Akiko, was the best tour guide I have experienced. She was very knowledgeable and friendly and well organised. We were there in Japan's autumn and the red, orange and yellow leaves were stunning. I don't think the cherry blossom in spring could top the variety of colours in the autumn leaves - but maybe I will have to go back and check! The hotels booked by Bunni...k were at main train stations, which made free time travel reasonably easy for those venturous enough to be independent. The only exception to this was the two nights we stayed in Hakone at a traditional Japanese Inn where we were treated to two formal dinners, after being given time to bathe in the hot springs at the end of our days out. We were fortunate to see Mt Fuji in all her glory, as there was no cloud hovering over her, when we visited. Our farewell dinner was a rather loud affair as there were several 'singers' amongst the tour party. Mary D.

A Taste of Sri Lanka. Blown away with this great country.
We ended up going on this trip as a sort of "accident".
Friends had a relative doing volunteer work in Sri Lanka and they found the Bunnik tour and booked. Despite not having Sri Lanka on our radar, we looked at it and is seemed pretty good.
The tour was well paced, a bit rushed in week 1 perhaps, but don't know how it could have been done differently.
Plenty of +1 nights in locations especially Sigiriya which we used for 'hub and spoke outings'.
The variety of scenery is immense and spectacular and very changeable especially in t...
Perfect pace for 1st time organised tour travellers
We have just returned from the Bunnik's Tour of Morocco & Southern Spain. It was a thoroughly enjoyable experience with the right mix of mostly 2-3 night stays in each hotel with daily trips organised. Plenty of free time to shop & explore & a wonderful group of 20 to travel with. We enjoyed the exotic & scenic Morocco & the picturesque & historic Southern Spain with our wonderful guides Karim & Patrick as well as very knowledgeable local guides. Travel was mostly by bus (room to seat 45) but also included a train journey in Morocco between...Casablanca & Marrakech, a fast train journey from Cordoba to Madrid in Spain & the ferry trip across the Straits of Gibraltar. We stayed in Madrid at the end of the tour for a further four days to enjoy the wonderful city's culture & cuisine.
A Wonderful Experience.
My friend Ros and I have just returned from the Morocco@Southern Spain tour,this was our 2nd Bunnik tour.We would like to thank you for the opportunity to experience the history and cultural activities of this area.The memories that we brought back are just fantastic.We had a small group of 20 and what a wonderful group they were,enjoying each others company very much.We enjoyed some great activities like riding camels in the Sahara desert at sundown,visiting the old town in Marrakesh,admiring the architecture of ancient times and many more.Our tour guides Karim and Patrick were both knowledgeable and caring.
Once again we would like to thank Bunnik tours for the excellent itinerary and planning of this marvellous tour.

Surpassed our expectations
We booked the Colours of Rajasthan Tour online. We had no problems with any aspect of this tour. This tour ended up being better than expected. In particular the tour guide and driver made the trip exceptional! They made sure everything ran to plan! There were 4 people on the tour including us, which turned out to be a major positive. It was like we had our own private tour! We have made new friends with plans to keep in contact. The highlight of this tour were seeing the outstanding forts, staying overnight in the Manvar Desert Camp and experiencing and learning about India and how people live. The Taj Mahal was special too! Thanks for making our holiday so enjoyable and memorable!

Perfect itinerary, guide & great group
Our 4th Bunnik Tour. As always a great combination of sightseeing with the best guides in the business. Blaz had an incredible knowledge of history and a great sense of humour. The special experiences, really were special.. well done! Small group of 20 on a bus designed for 40-45 people made for very relaxing travel days and always a great view.

Our second tour with Bunnik. I can only rate as excellent from the beginning, booking with Nick L, who was always available to answer any questions we had.
We had 20 on our tour, a great group who all got on very well.
The itinerary was full on but enjoyed every minute of it. The Sun 'Gods' really looked after us. Sun always coming out when we needed it.
Southern Italy, Sicily and Malta.
Our second tour with Bunniks. We went to Japan in2014 and had a wonderful experience with Bunniks. This time we did the Southern Italy, Sicily and Malta tour and loved it. ONe of the best things about it was our wonderful guide Liz, who felt more like an old friend than a guide, her knowledge of the places we visited was very thorough. I actually shed a few tears when we left her in Sicily as we had a new guide in Malta.
We had spent a few days before the tour inRome, which is a good idea as the tour starts pretty much immmediately after arri...
Wide reaching, interesting and relaxing vacation.
Very, very fortunate to be two of 20 guests on the initial Northern Italy, Slovenia and Croatian Bunnik Tour in May 2017. Very well organised from our first contact with Bunnik until our return home (Thanks heaps to Sara W). Accommodation was all without complaint in some of the most picturesque areas such as Stresa in N. Italy, to the remote areas of the Dolomites, Lake Bled in Slovenia and Plitivice Lakes in Croatia. Seven night cruise on MS Karizma was very relaxing, swimming in the Adriatic Sea - even in May it was 19 degrees, with a ...very obliging crew attending to our needs. Our land tour director was amazing and 20 people on a full sized coach meant no jostling for windows, rotation problems, etc! Ample free time available to 'do our own thing' following included guided tours in all visited locations. All tipping included which was a great relief. We were able to include pre or post tour options, at own expense, but Bunnik well able to cater for any additional requirements or needs on request - thanks again to Sarah W.
China Beyond Expectations
Have just returned from a China in Depth Tour
Quite an amazing experience made so by the exceptional professional guide we were so lucky to have as our national guide.
Theresa Thank you ,you made on trip to China a wonderful one.
The local guides were great also and the whole trip organised by Chris at Bunniks was one to remember.
The whole trip was beyond expectations and thoroughly recommended.
China is a vast and wonderful country.
Can't wait to see more of it.
March 17th 2018 Update: India in Depth
Have just done the Jordan and Egypt in Depth trip, and what can I say but wow! Had never done a package tour before, and had no idea what to expect from the countries either. What a way to travel! Our guide in Jordan, Ahmed, was fantastic, handling the larrikin ways of a bunch of Aussies with ease. And Jordan blew me away, such a fascinating and varied country. Was sad to leave Jordan and Ahmed for Egypt, but little did I know the trip would only get better. In Mohamed's capable and knowledgeable hands, we saw even more incredible sights, with ...Mohamed sharing his extensive knowledge at every step. Egypt's a beautiful and fascinating country, and I would gladly go back. Thanks to Ahmed and Mohamed for looking after us all so well. If you're interested in this part of the world but worried about perceived danger, please don't be worried. We felt safe at every step of the way. Thanks Bunnik for a superb trip.

We booked the trip online and everything that Heather wrote, we would totally agree with, as we were on the same tour! A nice little group and lots of fun, totally educational. Really should have made some effort to read about ancient Egypt. Our guide (Mohamed Shehata Ali) and the Bunniks representatives at the airport were absolutely great at making sure we didn't experience any problems. Would have to say this is one of the best holidays we've had......felt totally safe at all the places we visited and Mohamed has a passion for his country which brings the narratives to life. Hardly any tourists there, which was great for us, but my fellow Australians, you're missing out on the trip of a lifetime! The Outlaw Brothers

Booked by phone Egypt in Depth 17 days, small group of 6, comfortable mini bus, excellent Guide, Mohomad Serata?? What he doesn't know about Egyptian history would fit on a post-it note. Courteous, considerate, very well organised, no problems when itinerary required re organising due to circumstances beyond his control. Wonderful Hotels and food experiences along the way. Nile cruise unbelievable, all in all everything I could have wished for on this long awaited trip to Egypt. Always felt very safe, tourists are starting to return so great to travel before it becomes very busy again. Egypt Car Travel staff friendly and well organised. My third Bunk tour.
Mexico,Guatemala and Panama Canal cruise

Push it some more!
Questions & Answers
Hi, I'm thinking of doing the Scandinavian discovery in 2020 with Bunnik Tours as a solo. Do any members have feedback/reviews on this tour? I'm little concerned about the 2 internal flights on this tour, that is., do you miss seeing a lot of the countryside because you are flying instead of driving? Thank you!
Thinking of Vietnam and Cambodia tour (18-20 days..memory fails at the moment). My wife and I are 63 and 64 respectively with no real health issues and enjoy wialking. Is the Bunnik tour suitable for our age group covering tours, smaller bus size and accommodation?
Laurie. Absolutely go. I have already been Vietnam along the Mekong Delta and Cambodia. Had an absolutely wonderful time. Bunnik Tours are fabulous. You are only young just do it. You will enjoy it as much as I did. Catherine. Sri Lanka with Bunnik was on the same level.
I am a senior lady travelling solo. I am doing 'Greece in Depth' Bunnik and actual tour starts 18 Sept. Day 2. arrive in Thessaloniki. Brochure says 'upon arrival into Thessaloniki airport...you will be met by a local representative holding a sign labelled 'Bunnik Tours'. I have searched on Google for the location to go to find this local representative and see that arrivals are on the ground floor but it is a large airport. I am disembarking off a domestic flight Aegean Airlines, so I would like to know where exactly I should look for the local representative who will be meeting me.
Well, I'm just a fellow traveller who worried about this too, but when I arrived in Barcelona, feeling dreadfully overwhelmed, once I got completely out of all the baggage and immigration crush and out into the public area, I saw tour operators standing there with signs all over the place and I just kept walking along the lines until there she was, Cristina, holding a big red Bunniks sign. So don't worry, you'll find your guide in the public arrival area.
Thankyou Cameron for taking time to answer me. I will do what you suggest and hope to see someone with a large Bunnik sign in Thessaloniki airport.
Hi Marg - Ken, also from Perth. Like Cameron, I negotiated Barcelona Arrivals very successfully last year, all signs (in English ) logically guided me to Luggage collection which is in close proximity to the 'Meet & Greet' area, where my Tour Director was waiting. Like Cameron, I was a bit stressed, but because of an unwanted issue at Frankfurt Airport ( 4th busiest in Europe & huge!). Thessaloniki will be similar to BCN but much smaller. In 2018, BCN, 7th busiest in Europe, 50172457 passengers; Athens, 27th busiest, 24135736; Thessaloniki, 3rd busiest in Greece, 6403396 - all with terminal sizes relevant to their passenger movements. Thessaloniki might appear large, but relative to Perth. Your Tour Director/Representative will be patient, so take your time, collect your bag. And wear your Bunnik back pack in front so he/she can spot you from a distance. Good luck & enjoy.
