This was truly an authentic outback Queensland experience. Cobbold Gorge was a definite highlight as was the Gulf cruise. This tour far exceeded my expectations.

– Joan, Gulflander May 2018

We would like to pass on a huge “thank you” to Perry, Peter, Kaye and Ali for the wonderful time we had on the Regal Rhine Sights & Delights cruise – not to forget Jenny who did our booking! This was our seventh river cruise and it has really left us wanting to do more hosted tours with the Travel Team as it was so friendly and comfortable.

– Bill & Elva, Regal Rhine River Cruise – 2018 Founder’s Tour

This was a great Trip and far exceeded our expectations! Great people, great company, great crew on the William Shakespeare ship plus lots of trips and things to see and do. We saw the Eiger in Switzerland which I never thought I would get to. We will definitely  go on another trip with Travel Team, Perry and his team thought out and organised this trip extremely well.

– Gwen, Regal Rhine River Cruise – 2018 Founder’s Tour

We had a fantastic time on the Magical India tour. Our Guide, Raj, had a wealth of knowledge of the places, culture and was a god send when making purchases. There were so many interesting sights and adventures, seeing the Taj Mahal was AMAZING, the feelings and emotions experienced is indescribable. The trip will certainly remain as a wonderful memory!

– Gail, Magical India Tour 2018

From my initial tentative enquiry to Travel Team, through the personal and professional handling of my booking by Margaret, the attention, care and camaraderie of our tour guides, the follow-up post trip – everything from Travel Team was exceptional! I would absolutely, without reservations, recommend this Team to everyone.

– Bonny,  Travel Team First Time Traveller 2018

It was my ultimate snow and ice experience hosted by Kris Cant, a most efficient, friendly guide with great experience. We all agreed that even if we didn’t see the Northern Lights it was still a wonderful tour. As luck would have it, we did see the Northern Lights 2 nights in a row in Tromso on board MS Nordkapp. The hotels, the food, the tours and the company were excellent. I would recommend this tour to everyone. If I can do it, anyone can do it even if the temperatures did plunge to -21C just before we left!

– Dorothy, Northern Lights Tour 2018

Thanks to our tour host, Kris for the great trip. I loved every minute of it and your style, I hope to do another trip with you again soon.

– Noelyn, Northern Lights Tour 2018


Had an amazing trip to Harbin Ice Festival, it was cold but fantastic! Great tour guide and wonderful fellow travellers. Thank you Peter, all our Chinese local guides and to everyone who I spent 11 days getting to know. Lots of laughs and wonderful food. Would happily do it all again.

– Viv, Harbin Ice Festival Tour 2018


Having visited China on several different occasions since 1987, I have marvelled at the changes that continue to take place and going to Harbin was no exception. Great to see the people at play, in the amazing setting that the Ice Sculptures and Snow Lantern exhibits provide within the Harbin 34th International Ice and Snow Festival. And what can I say about this particular Travel Team tour with Peter Francis as our leader, a great guy who made an amazing trip all the more amazing, every step of the way. As an 80-year-old woman, undertaking a trip in -20 to -30C degree temperatures was a little bit daunting, but the structure of the tour, the places visited and the care taken to ensure all of us stayed safe, was without fault and a trip to truly be treasured among my other amazing memories of places visited.

– Molly, Harbin Ice Festival Tour 2018


I thoroughly enjoyed my Christmas Markets Tour organised by my travel specialist, Barney. How wonderful it was to experience to beauty, culture and history of a Europe!

– Margaret, Travel Team Frequent Traveller


Thank you to Barney, who organised our cruise to New Zealand on Sea Princess. The weather was spot on and the food on board was great! There was such a choice of food and it was always so fresh, there was something there for what ever your taste. The shows were awesome, so professional and plenty of choice to choose from. Many many thanks for organising such a great cruise, can’t wait for the next one.

– Geoff, Travel Team Frequent Traveller


I have just returned from The Ghan Expedition trip and WOW that was a fantastic experience. Thanks to Peter our Host for a great trip.

– Tracey, Ghan Expedition 2017


When I first came across your magazine over 10 years ago, I looked forward to their arrival to see what you were offering. At that stage I wasn’t travelling as my husband didn’t like flying so I had to get up courage to travel on my own. I’m grateful that you gave me the opportunity to do so with your group tours. I hope I have lots of trips ahead with you and your staff.

– Carole, Travel Team Frequent Traveller


This has been a great trip and much more than I expected. I recommend this to others.

– Elizabeth, Norfolk Island November 2017


I enjoyed my holiday with Travel Team, it had a good mix of tours and free time. The food was excellent (fresh from the Island). Peter our tour leader was approachable and answered our questions, he was a very nice man.

– Maureen, Norfolk Island November 2017


Our Tour Host, Kaye, was absolutely lovely. She was efficient, enthusiastic and communicated with us all very well. This tour had great sights to see and I made some great friends. – Thank you!

– Wendy, Australian Singapore Sling Cruise and Rail Tour 2017


Just returned from the Canberra Floriade Tour, the gardens were all beautiful and all the places they took us to were great as was Kaye, our tour host.  

– Marlene, Canberra Floriade 2017


A big thank you to Jenny for organising our trip to Vietnam. Everything went off smoothly, all of our guides and drivers where excellent, groomed well, their English was good and their cars clear and modern. After being an engine man for 43 years The Victoria train was an experience, I didn’t think Joy would like it …but she enjoyed did! It is a vintage train trip!

– David & Joy, Independent Vietnam Trip 2017


I have recently returned from a wonderful trip to Lightning Ridge, it was such an enjoyable and interesting trip! The accommodation, the meals, the attractions, all were great. I must make special mention of our coach driver, Andrew. He was at all times pleasant and helpful, and had a lovely quiet sense of humour. Another special mention of the delicious biscuits and slices, all homemade, which appeared as if by magic at smoko time. 

– Lorraine, Lightening Ridge Tour 2017


We were very happy with the service provided by Jenny who not only booked our holiday but greeted us at Roma street station before we began our tour to Lightning Ridge. We found the tour very interesting and enjoyable. Our experience was enhanced by our driver/guide who was really helpful, considerate and he did  far more than anticipated. Lightning Ridge offered far more than we had expected! Our only regret about the whole trip is that none of us came away with a really valuable opal from the mullock heap fossicking, otherwise it was perfect!

– Anne & Andrew, Lightening Ridge Tour 2017


I really enjoyed the bus service in Darwin and our host was very friendly and willing to do anything for our comfort. 
– Beverley, Ghan Expedition 2017


Out tour host, Peter Frances, was great! He was very helpful and courteous, easy to talk to and goes out of his way to help in any way. 
– Anneliese, Ghan Expedition 2017


It was so great to see so much of our beautiful country that I had never seen before, I had a lot of fun and met new people that I can now call friends. 
– Maureen, Ghan Expedition 2017


I enjoyed everything about this tour as I had never been there before. The tour allowed me to experience this amazing place and I also met some great friends to tour with in the future. 
– Lana, Norfolk Island Tour, Oct 2017


This tour was brilliant, from the incredible bus drivers and guides to the friendly waves of the locals. The perfect weather made the island all that more beautiful and I thoroughly enjoyed the cultural and farm visits. Our tour hosts, Gayle and Kristie, did a great job ensuring our needs were catered for and allowing us all to really enjoy ourselves. 
– Trevor, Norfolk Island Tour, Oct 2017


There was so many highlights on this tour! I especially enjoyed the knowledge of our driver on the history of the island. It was very interesting and elevated my experience. 
– Coral, Norfolk Island Tour, Oct 2017


Our tour host Shelley was wonderful and one of the highlights of my trip. The other was our tour guide Jo, who we could not of asked more from. He lived in the area and was very knowledgeable, he even sung to us around the camp fire! Cobbold Gorge and the lava tubes were incredible and this tour was far more than I expected.  
– Noelene, Gulflander Tour 2017


This tour was ABSOLUTELY  FANTASTIC. I could almost say it was my best tour ever. Russia was UNREAL and I would  HIGHLY  RECOMMEND  this tour. It was also great value. 
– Carole, China Silk Road & Russia Waterways Tour 2017


This tour is perfect for those that wish to see the true outback! Being a small group, I found it was easy for our tour to be a bit flexible. 
– Paul & Fay, Gulflander Tour 2017


This is my 3rd trip with Travel Team and as with the others, has been exceptional. For me the key highlight of this tour was the friendly nature of the local people. They are very warm, welcoming and keen to show you all about their magnificent home. 
– Mike, Norfolk Christmas in July Tour 2017


Our Tour Hosts, Gayle and Ali, were both excellent and I would like like to thank them both. 
– Kerrie, Norfolk Christmas in July Tour 2017


I travelled to China with Travel Team and I had a fantastic time. Best holiday I have had.I travelled with Karen and she was fantastic. I went as a solo traveller. I would highly recommend this company.
– Leonie, China Yangtze Tour 2017


I have been on many group tours over the years and recently returned from the Japan Cherry Blossom Tour. This was the best tour that I have been on, with very organised and inclusive activities keeping us busy every day. All costs were pre-paid and there was no need to spend anything unless you chose to. I have rather difficult dietary issues and they were generally well catered for. I suffered from a health issue while in Japan and Judy and Lili were absolutely marvellous. I would definitely recommend the Travel Team.
– Judi, Japan Cherry Blossom Tour 2017


Just returned from my first trip with Travel Team to Japan and am very happy to recommend them highly to others. The accommodation was exceptional, the itinerary was extensive and our guides were fantastic. I learned so much about Japan’s culture, history and lifestyle in a relatively short time. The group I travelled with were so friendly and considerate with many laughs along the way. Every effort was made to accommodate our personal needs and dietary requirements, which I really appreciated. I will certainly journey with Travel Team again.
– Marion, Japan Cherry Blossom Tour 2017


Thank you to Travel Team and our hosts, Kaye, Peter and Judy for a truly wonderful holiday. It was our first trip to Europe and very reassuring to have our experienced hosts looking after us. A big thank you also to our Tour Guide, Roos and the Captain and crew of the MS Bellejour. We especially enjoyed the guided tours at each port of call. Special dietary needs were very well met by the catering staff and ensured a worry-free trip. The visit to the Keukenhof Tulip Gardens was the highlight of the tour. We have made new friends and would not hesitate to book with Travel Team again.
– Neil & Averil, Tulip Time River Cruise 2017


Thank you so much for the wonderful time we had on the Tulip time river cruise 2017, although we were from the UK we were welcomed by our Australian friends, the tours were exceptional as were the hosts we made many forever friends and if we ever get a chance of travelling with Travel Team we would not hesitate to book with them.
– Maureen, Tulip Time River Cruise 2017


Tulip Time 2017 + Battlefield Extension – thank you so very much to the Travel Team and our lovely hosts, Peter, Kaye and Judy for such a wonderful holiday. It was our first time in Europe and we didn’t have to worry about a thing (that was someone else’s job) apart from making sure we were up and ready to go each day. Could write a novel about our trip away but just wanted to say thank you again, it was a brilliant trip that went above and beyond all expectations.
– Nicki, Tulip Time River Cruise 2017


I enjoyed all of this trip! I especially liked the Kingfisher Resort , it was excellent!
Wendy, Fraser Island Hosted Tour 2017


This tour was a very enjoyable holiday and our favourite part was the day trip of Fraser Island itself. Thank you.
Bill & Dee, Fraser Island Hosted Tour 2017


Letting you know that we arrived home from our holiday last night. The tour was great the Tulip River Cruise was lovely the battlefields and Anzac Day was very moving then the Insight tour of Switzerland rounded off the tour nicely. Everything you arranged fell into place just has it has done with all our previous tours.
