Hello, I´m Pablo and I wanted to share my experience with you. Last december I got married to Carmen, we are from Spain and we wanted a different honey moon so we decided to join in the 14 day Sydney to Cairns tour. It has been the trip of our lives, they prepare everything with great care and you can see/feel the social responsibility of the company and the service providers they have chosen. We were lucky to have Wara as a guide, since he is passionate about his country and a person fully committed to his community, able to give us a lot of information and anecdotes that made the trip much more interesting. The first week of the tour was great, seeing spectacular places and having the opportunity to go through the koala hospital, but the second week is totally incredible and being able to end up in the Great Barrier Reef is a once in a lifetime opportunity, and I recommend you that you to go diving. Kind regards.

This was my first trip to Australia and I'm sure it won't be my last. I joined my Intrepid Travel group in Sydney and over the next two weeks we travelled all the way up the east coast to Cairns visiting a wealth of interesting places on the way. Our tour guide Wara was a mine of information about all things Australia from day to day living to the culture, history and flora/fauna of this amazing continent. He went above and beyond in taking care of the group and making sure we all had a great trip. The group was a great mix of ages and nationalities and it's a fantastic way to see a new country whether you are a solo traveller or with others. I would 100% recommend this tour.

If you read Vanessa’s review below she is spot on! She was on the 14day extended version of the Intrepid East Coast Australia tour. I joined midway in Brisbane and completed the 2nd week with them on the journey to Cairns. I’ll admit I was a tad nervous being a solo traveler joining a group tour midway, but the group tour guide, Wara Dan, immediately made me feel comfortable to get on the road with then strangers who are now life-long friends. The tour itself packs in A TON of activities in just one week. Looking back I can’t believe we did as much as we did or travelled as far as we did (over 1700km). And I wouldn’t change a thing. Wara (our guide) kept the trip interesting with fun stops along the way and was also extremely knowledgable of Australian history and culture. The trip would not have been nearly as informative or fun without him. Wara also made sure we were comfortable and prepared for each day’s next adventure, from snorkeling at the Whitsundays and the Great Barrier Reef, to spotting platypus and waterfalls in the Atherton Tablelands and of course the excursion to Fraser Island. In short, I 100% recommend this Intrepid tour of the East Coast ESPECIALLY if you can have Wara as your guide. It’s already on my list to come back to see the west coast of Australia!

Hey Looloobean7, Wow - what a great review for our 7 day Brisbane to Cairns tour and how much Wara, your guide made the trip so enjoyable. Thanks so much for taking the time to write such kind words. It is really interesting for us to read about how you felt joining the tour mid way and we are so glad that the fantastic environment Wara and the other like minded travellers on board had created, simply fantastic feedback for us. You are right, we do include a lot in our tours but have also curated the itinerary so you still have a chance for some me time/relaxing holiday time too. So glad you got to see the illusive platypus on our tour! The pristine Australian natural environment and the animals are very important to us and spotting platypus and other animals in the wild is such a special thing. Thanks so much again for taking the time to write your review - we are in the process of adding more small group boutique tours around Australia and hope that we can have you back on a tour one day in the future. Stu and the small team at Via Travel Boutique Australia Tours.

I joined this East Coast of Australia Intrepid tour as a solo traveler and can honestly say it was one of the best holidays I have been on. I met some truly lovely people and each day was fascinating and full of interesting places to see. The tour was led by our excellent tour guide, Wara. His knowledge is absolutely unbelievable and I came away with so much more insight and knowledge on Australia and in particular on aboriginal culture and indigenous people. Wara’s passion and enthusiasm is infectious and at all times he took great care of the entire group and their needs. Australia is a big country to cover but the journeys were well broken up with so many interesting things to see along the way and plenty of bathroom/coffee stops!! Wara is a credit to his profession and I will definitely be coming back for many more tours to Oz in the next few years!!

I travelled alone to Australia to join the intrepid Sydney to Cairns tour, and I cannot rate it highly enough! I had a wonderful roommate and came away with lifelong friends. Wara, our tour guide, was so knowledgeable and took care to guide us through Australian history and culture every step of the way. He made sure we knew the itinerary each day and made it a throughly enjoyable and fascinating trip. Excellent!
