The most memorable tour I’ve ever done was:

It's very tough to pick the best tour that I've experienced because they have all been extremely memorable in different ways!  I would say it would have to be a tie between an East African Safari from South Africa to Kenya, taking the Trans Mongolian Railway from Moscow to Beijing, and island hopping through the Galápagos in Ecuador.  

My next tour is likely to be:

I'm always looking at going down the roads less travelled and anywhere that's a little bit different.  That being said, the Caucasus region (Georgia, Azerbaijan, and Armenia) has always been high on my list.  The region is where two continents literally meet so I am really excited to experience how the landscapes and cultures collide.

The most memorable tour I’ve ever done was:

The Contiki Ecuador & Galapagos Island Hopper - it has it all! You go from crystal blue waters to adrenaline junky Banos to the Amazon jungle! The wildlife in the Galapagos Islands is like nothing you will ever experience, and the snorkelling is hands down some of the best in the world. Then back on land you've got rainforests and the Amazon Jungle!

The most memorable tour I’ve ever done was:

Antarctica! It was the most adventurous tour I've ever done, & it was also the most spectacular. There's nowhere else where you can be that is as remote and isolated. I even had to supply my blood type, it was that off the beaten track. The experience of being on board the G expedition was outstanding, their service & staff are second to none. 

My next tour is likely to be:

There’s a few on my list! Hoping for Turkey around ANZAC day. I'm also really hoping to do Kokoda and Everest Base Camp (both of them eventually).

The most memorable tour I’ve done was:

Busabout - Greek Island Flexi Hopper. Greece is absolutely picture perfect and I just loved the flexibility of the Busabout Greek Island Flexi Hopper! I could choose how long I wanted to spend on each island without missing out on the group tour experience. 

My next tour is likely to be: 

G Adventures - Mozambique, Kruger and Swazi Discoverer. I think this tour visits such a great variety of places in Southern Africa. I've wanted to do this trip for about 2 years now, every time I look at it… it gets more and more exciting!

The most memorable tour I’ve ever done was:

Winter Wanderer – Contiki, travelling Europe at that time of year is so amazing.  It’s much less crowded and really great value.

My next tour is likely to be:

East Africa Safari – Contiki, Africa is high on my bucket list and I know I will feel extremely safe with a tour group. I can’t wait to see the incredible landscape and with an organised group I’ll get to do things may be difficult to do on my own and/or hard to get to.

The most memorable tour I’ve ever done was:

Greek Island Hopping with Contiki – sun & fun! It was legendary! It's a hassle free holiday. You sit back and relax while everything is organised for you...now that's a holiday!

My next tour is likely to be: 

"Sweet as South" with Contiki. We are so blessed to have New Zealand so close to Australia and it's one of the most scenic destinations in the world. The south island of New Zealand has also been on my bucket list and who better to do it with than Contiki, the home of Contiki itself.

The most memorable tour I’ve ever done was:

Brazil and Argentina on a Shoestring with G Adventures. I booked this tour and I was blown away by what I was able to see in only 11 days; Christ The Redeemer, Iguassu Falls & Sugar Loaf Mountain, plus sailing along the beaches helped me see parts of Brazil and Argentina I might not have otherwise. My only regret was not extending my time there!

My next tour is: 

With Acacia, one of our African Safari Specialists exploring East Africa. I've chosen this trip because I loved the itinerary, eco-tourism is something I'm passionate about, so being able to do the Gorilla Trek in Uganda was the biggest draw-card for me, but also visiting the Masai Mara tribe, as well as as many National Parks as possible.
