15 Day Highlights of Japan with Flights
I highly recommend this tour for 1st time travellers to Japan for sightseeing as language barrier!!! Overall the trip was great as was booking on line with Traveldream. Full credit goes to the Japanese tour guides at Tomato Travel, especially the tour leader Samantha and her team including Connie, Yumi and the coach driver Kimora San who were extremely friendly, patient and helpful. They went out their way to make sure our trip was memorable and exciting. And most of the people on our tour coach were very friendly and fun to interact with, which made our trip more pleasant.
11 Day Egypt tour with Nile Cruise and Flights
My daughter found this tour advertised on Groupon and we had always wanted to go. Family were concerned about our safety, but at no time on this tour did we feel unsafe. Many times a security guard travelled with us even on the bus. Traveldream were so helpful when we made our initial enquiry and followed up when we booked. Reminders for final payment and paperwork for visas were also provided . Dave in particular was very helpful.
We had an amazing 11 days covering the major archaeological sites of Egypt - pyramids, sphinx, Saqqara, Thebes, K...arnak, Aswan High Dam, Abu Simbel, Luxor, Valley of the Kings, Temple of Philae, Edfu, and Temple of Hatshepsut. From being met at the airport on arrival to the end of the tour everything was well organised. Expat tours ran the tour. Samar was our guide and she was so knowledgable and helpful. There were some early starts but it meant we beat the heat and some of the crowds. The Oasis Hotel in Cairo near the Giza pyramid complex was very comfortable and had great security. On the first night the group met and discussed the coming tour, optional tours and costs. The itinerary had listed all extra costs clearly so there were no surprises. The optional trip to Abu Simbel was breath taking and well worth the money. We also did an optional Alexandria trip on our last free day and was also good value. In the Valley of the Kings we paid $1000 Egyptian pounds to visit the temple of Seti I. This was an extra but it is the most spectacular tomb - a complete book of the dead. We also paid 250 Egyptian pounds to go into Tutankhamun's tomb which has his mummy and sarcophagus inside. The tour included three other tombs. We also did the light and sound tour of the pyramid complex which was an extra as well, but worth it. Because most transactions are in Egyptian pounds a stop at a ATM was arranged from time to time. The Oasis Hotel had an ATM in the hotel and at the attached shops in the complex. Remember to keep a few small notes in your pocket for toilet stops as often there is a charge. On the whole the toilets at the sites, road houses, restaurants we visited are all modern. The bus sold bottled water cheaper than most stops or hotels and was properly sealed. They have refrigeration on the bus. We paid 15 pounds for small bottles. The cruise ship was perhaps 4 stars, but the food was excellent and varied. When not on a tour we spent time relaxing in the pool or under the veranda watching Egypt go by. Magnificent sunsets and an always changing view. Plenty of time to mix with fellow tour travellers and relax. The rooms on the ship were comfortable and had all amenities. The stop in Hurghurda on the Red Sea was beautiful. We stayed at the Caves Resort, which was different to the advertised accommodation. This cave themed hotel was comfortable and very large with several restaurants and bars. A wide variety of food was available and drinks were included in the package. We had an option to go scuba diving, but when we heard we needed to head out at 7.00am we decided to spend the day in the resort. A group of us gathered under the beachfront umbrellas and spent the day swimming and relaxing. The beach is quite rocky so beach shoes would be great. Luckily the shop at the front sells them and snorkels/masks. We shared a mask and out on the reef were brightly coloured fish and coral. The resort also has two pools with bars. A very enjoyable day with other tour members was had. The trip to Cairo took around 5 hours. If you suffer from car sickness you might want to take something on this day and the trip to Abu Simbel (3 hours). The museum in Cairo and the market were our last stops on returning to Cairo. We enjoyed a stop at a cafe in the heart of Cairo where we could watch the locals, bargain with the hawkers, listen to the call to prayer and just soak in the atmosphere. On our last night we came together for cake and did feedback forms. We also got to thank our guide and pay her her tip.
Egypt 12 day Tour
Fabulous experience. A well organised tour. Egypt amazing place to visit. Accommodated our wishes to travel in a group of 5. Added any side trips we asked for, including a 3 day add on to Jordan at the end. Our tour leader was wonderful, Ahmed Hassan; highly educated and English spoken excellently. Our only minor issue were the few very early mornings - absolutely necessary?
12 night China Tour
Travelled to China with my sister for a 12 night package tour. Good value for money. Great for adults. Daily tours were optional /extra, but we knew that upon booking & were able to pay for those before as well - so no nasty suprises. Email contact with Traveldream prior to leaving was prompt & helpful
Wonderful memories created
We went on the 21 day European Discovery tour in September. It was our first trip to Europe and we had an amazing time. The days were full on but we saw so much and it iginited a passion to travel and spend more time in our favourite countries. Travel Dream were very easy to deal with and the trip was great value. I'm still trying to work through all the photos, it was such an amazing trip. As with anything there can be little hiccups along the way eg some of the behaviours/attitudes of other travellers or an occasional breakfast were staff didn't cope or cater for numbers involved but these were very minor and did not dampen the overall experience.
Northern Territory 4 day tour.
We did the 4 day Northern Territory tour in late September. It was good value for money and the accommodation, tour guide and food provided was of excellent quality. Would recommend for adult couples.
I took my 81 yr old Mum overseas for the first time. All had a fantastic time. Our tour guides were remarkable. It was a very busy 8 days but worth every minute. We are now trying to decide where to go next!!! Many thanks to all.
Mary River Wilderness Retreat
We did the Mary River Wilderness Retreat 4 day tour! The Traveldream administration was excellent with our booking! No problems at all, we really enjoyed the experience! Thank you to all concerned!
Italy land tour and seven night cruise
Well organised with pickups etc but found standard of hotels could have been better and need to be closer to restaurants for dinner. Tour guides on first three days were poor. Hard to hear and understand and even forced off the bus for tour in Florence during thunderstorm. No plan B! Thank goodness we had a great tour guide, Encarni from Europamundo, for the rest of the Italy tour. Managed to visit lots of places with MSC cruise but it was just a large cruise ship- lots of added costs.
European 21 Day Trip
Our experience with Traveldream and Moment Travel was one of ease, fantastic service and outstanding help. We encountered a problem with a hotel booking which would have been at the end of our trip and the service was outstanding in fixing our problem.
However, Our experience with Europomondo was not so exciting. They should travel with another company to see how it's done.
Thank you Traveldream.
Great tour, worth the money
We had a 10 days European land tour (Switzerland- Italy) with 7 days cruise (Croatia-Santorini). It was well organised , tours were enjoyable, worth the money. Looking forward to booking another holiday with Traveldream. Thank you!
So much to experience! Great holiday.
It was 29 days long European holiday. Very professionally organized with inspiring tours, many countries, interesting places and a lot to see and learn. Good hotels, transport, great cruise, excellent food. Our request to extend holiday to a different country was done smoothly and effortlessly. I have already recommended Traveldream to my friends and I'm looking forward to book another holiday with them.
A fantastic tour.
It was a fantastic tour, worth the money. The highlight was the 4 night Yangtze river cruise. Tour guides were very halpful, friendly and experienced. Hotels were fantastic and the food delightful. There were a lot of options at extra costs but all worth the money. Well done and thank you.
Great experience with Traveldream
Thoroughly enjoyed 14 day China trip, including the 4day Yangtze River cruise. Excellent service all round and top value for the cost. Exceeded our expectations. Tour guides were very knowledgeable and friendly
Holiday of a lifetime- Maldives
My husband and I had the holiday of a lifetime. We spent 7 nights in
an overwater villa with private pool. When we arrived we were greeted
with drums and welcoming smiles, we checked in and were driven to our
villa and given a tour through our room which is (cleaned twice a day)
and also given the run down on what the resort had to offer. Sabrina
our host was fantastic and checked in with us through out our stay.
The villa was amazing a glass floor so you could watch the fish, comfy
bed to relax in and also enjoy an afternoon nap and an egg shaped bath
to unwind in all over looking the beautiful crystal blue water of the
lagoon. The food was absolutely delicious and so much choice, they...
21 Day European Adventure
I travelled with my three teenage children. The trip was more than we could have wished for. It was extensive and quite demanding at times, just what we needed. Awesome experience.

Couldn't have been a better trip.
Our guides were knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. Moving around in Vietnam was an adventure but all of our connections, tours, and events went off perfectly. I would highly recommend Traveldream.
Great assistance with booking and an excellent tour
We booked the Mary River Tour in the Northern Territory for May 2019. First of all, the service offered by Haylie was first rate in all respects - her manner and approach was spot on. She was able to answer all questions we had, full stop, and the tour proved very good, apart from a couple of adventures with the bus, which were obviously beyond Haylie's control.
As far as the tour was concerned, it was great. We were in the hands of a very affable, knowledgable and unflapable drive/guide, Kel, who turned out to be just the right man for the j...

Easy, Easy and Easy
It was easy to book, conformation came in less than 30 seconds. It was also easy to amend the dates for my booking at some later date.
I booked 5 nights accommodation in McMillans of Metung Resort.
I was surprised to find out that I need to pay $50 surcharge for staying over Saturday night but it was my oversight as it was actually written on the Traveldream site.
13 day glance of Vietnam tour
Transfers were good, at airport pick ups the tour guides were always waiting for us when we arrived and tour guides spoke and understood English very well. They were helpful and willing at all times. Some tour guides arrived later than scheduled tour pick ups and we had to ask the hotel staff to call up and find out what was happening. Also the promised 2 X bottles of water per person was only 1 bottle per person and not cold. At times we weren’t given water at all on our tours as per the advertised tour inclusions. Being that the temperature w...as at least 38 degrees with 90% humidity, water should have been provided, instead on many occasions we had to purchase our own. Some of the optional tours offered were overpriced so we booked locally instead for a cheaper rate. Hanoi street food tour was very overpriced $50 AUD each. Overall the Vietnam tour was good value for money, but the 3 star hotel in Hanoi was very ordinary to say the least and not at all 3 star by Australian standards. Bear that in mind when booking and perhaps pay extra for an upgrade. Halong Bay cruise was amazing and Calypso cruise ship was exceptional. Hotel in Hoian was very good as was the hotel in HoChiMinh city (Saigon). All hotels were central to all attractions and amenities and most were within walking distance. The Traveldream team made our booking process easy and all went according to plan. We will definitely use Traveldream again when looking to book another trip.

Questions & Answers
Hi I am interested in your Sydney to London with Vietnam Airlines business class deal departing in early June 2020 and returning mid to late July. I have recently had a very bad experience with online travel agent BestJet and lost quite a bit of money so would really like to know a bit more about your company and financial reliability before purchasing the travel deal.
I'm sorry you received that message Glenn. I'm not sure what happened there.

Angela from the Traveldream team.
Considering the Rockies/Alaska/L Vegas holiday. Is the Rockies coach tour as good as Rocky Mountaineer? Have heard the train is very good.
Both are such an amazing experience, we have plenty of tours to Canada and Alaska which have either the coach tour of the Rockies or the Rocky Mountaineer.
Feel free to drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can discuss some options for you!
Look forward to hearing from you!
