Travel Company?

by kringenwally »

Where from? The US? UK? And are you looking for help with ticketing, or ticketing and accommodation bookings, or a fully organized and shepherded tour?

I only ever go on my own, but if you clarify what you need, maybe someone else can jump in?

Meanwhile, could this be a helpful start? http://www.australia.com/plan/plan-your-trip/find-travel-agent.aspx

Hi Again! From Los Angeles, independent travels but someone with local knowledge to help recommend/make bookings, local insight into areas, etc., possibly get a better price with a package deal. Don't mind a couple of day tours but don't want to be part of a travel group that goes from location to location together. Still would like a little flexibility incase something really catches our eyes.

I highly recommend GoWay Tours. A true Australia expert. My sister traveled with them and had a great time.

Quantas Vacations is quite good. We used them a few years back. Cheers!

Great, thank you everyone for your recommendations.  I've been speaking with Quantas Vacations and they have come up with a pretty good itinerary for us.  I'll post my schedule when it looks like it will be firm!

GoWay specializes in Austrailia as does Quantas Vacations. Intrepid Travel is based in Australia and reportedly also has good tours there.
