Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Fabulous tour led by a great tour guide, Patricia. The Blue Mountains are spectacular and the Ferndale Animal park was great. You were able to feed wallabies and Kangaroos out of your hand. Highly recommend.

    Passed onto Colourful from another company that wasn't operating on the day we picked to go. Wouldn't change it!

    Odyssey Traveller (Australia): Buyers Beware

    In 2023, I booked the Odyssey Traveller Mediterranean Four Islands Tour for which I paid over AUS$19,000 because it was advertised as an educational tour for seniors and because there was a specified activity level which I thought I could meet. I now realise that there are no travel industry standards that distinguish a tour as educational rather than touristic, and seemingly no standards that ensure suitability for seniors.

    Hotels on the Odyssey tour were of variable standard. Some were spartan and many were poorly located leaving little opportunity to self-organise personal time. Included meals were often in restaurants up to, and over, a kilometre from hotels, which was quite a hike there and back for seniors after a day of touring.

    Self-porterage was expected and agreed to, but I hadn’t anticipated that some hotels would be in streets too narrow for the bus. As a consequence, we had to tote suitcases some distance along narrow and uneven pavements – on one occasion blocked by rubbish bins. Steep steps to hotel reception also a presented a barrier. So, before you book this tour ask some very specific questions about what the company means when it advertises tours for seniors.

    The level 2 moderate activity was frequently exceeded with rough and steep terrain that went beyond the advertised uneven ground. Further, one guest clocked 23,600 steps which exceeded the expected eight kilometres a day.

    The highly qualified tour leader had zero input into the educational quality of tour guiding. He had never previously visited the four islands. He behaved more like a guest than a tour leader. Following client complaints to Head Office, he announced, mid-tour at 4am, on the way to the airport, that he would no longer serve as a tour guide after this trip because he didn’t have the requisite skills or personality. I thought this an unprofessional announcement to a group of guests who had paid expensively for the current tour.

    Hoping to salvage the last two weeks of the tour, I contacted the Odyssey Traveller Head Office. They refused to speak with me and would speak only with my travel agent. They were so rude to her that she had to bring the call to an end. I wrote a detailed account of changes that would improve the educational quality of the tour and make it suitable for seniors. When my travel agent mentioned my report, they told her to send it across to them because they could do with a good laugh. I found their treatment of clients disdainful.

    I have now looked at other online reviews of this company (See TripAdvisor and Product Review). Given what I read, I see little point in seeking compensation for a tour that did not meet advertised standards. However, I remain concerned that seniors with the time and money to travel may be misled by advertising that is not supported by travel industry standards specifying what it means for a tour to be classified as educational and for seniors. In the absence of such standards: Buyers beware.
