    positive review  The best possible way to start your new adventure on the other side of the world, great value for money & priceless help from the tour guides, particularly in life after the tour, which will settle all nerves & give you the perfect journey in the weeks / months ahead which are best suited to you!

    positive review  This was such an awesome week! It provides us with the necessary tools to thrive here in Australia and allowed us to meet some rad people from all over the world! They went above and beyond to make sure we had a fun filled week and helped us get to know more about this beautiful place we are fortunate enough to call our new home. Not only did they get us set up in this week alone, they also helped us plan a few months of travel to some amazing spots and getting good deals on the package. Overall these three are awesome humans and what they are doing with this company is truly refreshing and I am glad I was able to experience it! If you are planning on traveling to Melbourne this is a great company to get involved with and help get you set up for this next chapter of your life!

Perfect way to get acclimated when first moving to Australia or have an awesome time for a short holiday. My tour ended but somehow it keeps giving! ("Somehow" is the staffs greatness, not all heroes wear capes. lol) Whatever reason you’re hesitating, trust yourself and participate in the program. Quality 🤗😁

    positive review  Just had such an amazing week! Initially I was apprehensive about the tour but that changed when the tour started. They were amazingly helpful from the beginning, sorting everything out for us, phones, bank and what we are going to do next. Help with employment and most importantly planning a tour of Australia. The wealth of knowledge they have about Australia is fascinating. Highly recommended.
