  1. Once in a lifetime experience

    This trip was amazing from start to finish. I enjoyed every second of the time spent in Australia and wish I was back there right now. The items on the itinerary were great and what you can do in your free time is amazing as well, such as the Sydney Harbor Bridge Climb, going on jungle gyms, and just walking along the streets on another country. Altogether, the organization and the layout of trip was amazing!!!

  2. Australia Wonders

    This trip was well planned from start to finish. We maximized our time and saw everything on the East Coast! It was a good mix of structure and free time and the education and memories were great for the kids.

  3. Great experience

    The tour was amazing!! The guide was one of the most impressive parts of the trip. She was professional, informative, and always in control of the tour (agenda, travelers, tours, and venues). Every detail was taken care of which allowed myself and all of the travelers to really get the most out of our experience. Can't wait for our next EF trip!!

  4. Loving it Down Under

    A wonderful trip showcasing Australia's animals, culture & water sports. We fed and petted kangaroos in the wildlife park and saw wild ones at numerous hotels. Some of the kangaroos had joeys in their pouches who would poke out their heads. At one wildlife park, where you can take your picture next to a koala & pet it, the koalas were actively eating and climbing trees. Don't miss the excursion in Cairns to Kuranda where you'll learn so much about aboriginal culture. There you can try to throw a boomerang & spear. The train ride back to town was long and boring, would have rather taken a bus transfer back to the hotel. The Whitsunday Island cruise excursion was one highlight of the tour. All day on a catamaran cruising through beautiful islands with snorkeling, beach time, morning scones & tea, BBQ lunch and unlimited beverages! Finally snorkeling at the Great Barrier Reef. Everyone, even the non-swimmers, snorkeled. It's amazing to swim with fish you see in an aquarium and amongst colorful coral and sea anemone. The 90 minute ride out to the Great Barrier Reef can be rough so if you are prone to sea sickness make sure to take your meds! Unfortunately because of the long bus rides between destinations we arrived at most hotels between 7-8 pm, not being able to enjoy their wonderful pools or beaches. Included meals were average to above average with a choice of entree at several dinners, which was very nice. Finally what made the trip was our excellent tour director. She always recapped the day so we all knew what was expected and at every hotel posted start times and items you might need while we were out. She was a wealth of information for free time activities and helping you find a restaurant with food of your liking. I highly recommend this trip!

  6. Texas loves Downunder

    From Sydney to Cairns--this is an exceptional tour! What an experience. From the people of Australia to the animals that you will find on no other continent, it is a trip that I will remember for a lifetime. Take time to talk to a stranger, they love to share their knowledge of the country. Take time to try veggiemite, it makes you wonder! Take the time to pet a kangaroo, that is when you know that you are there!

  7. Amazing Trip!

    Wonderful trip and exceptional tour guide! only complaints are:

    1) we were not fully aware of the amount of time/days in bus for travel (3 full days). this should have been better communicated, or broken up better. 2 of the days were back to back.

    2) the Croc Resort in Airlie Beach was AWFUL.
