What's an Australia Tour?
Australia tours are prepackaged trips with a set itinerary and dedicated tour manager. Many people who want to take an Australia vacation want to avoid all the planning and logistics involved in a big week or two week foreign trip abroad and are looking to save money by doing it all in a package instead of piecing things together at full price. The trip is led by a tour director who will take care of all the services from beginning to the end of your vacation. Your tour director connects you with local tour guides who will have a lot of knowledge on the specific cities you explore. Typically, hotels, transportation throughout your trip, some meals and sightseeing are arranged and included with the price of your Australia tour.
Cosmopolitan cities, gorgeous beaches, the rugged Outback and fascinating Aboriginal culture can all be experienced on Australia tours. Because Australia is so distant from North America, most Australia vacations are two weeks long, with some itineraries lasting a month. It makes perfect sense, though, since there is so much to see in this vast country. Typically you will fly between cities, to cover as much ground as you can in a limited amount of time. Most Australia tours start or end in the capital city of Sydney. Sights you will not want to miss here include the famous Sydney Opera House and Sydney Harbour with its pretty bridge. The Taronga Zoo is one place where you can get up close and personal with the native animals of Australia, such as kangaroos, koalas, wombats and dingoes. And Sydney has a myriad of neighborhoods with unusual boutiques for souvenir shopping and outdoor cafes for people watching.
What's Included on an Australia Tour?
Generally, an Australia tour will include as many services as possible, giving you less to worry about. Usually included on your Australia tour are: transportation (getting from place to place while on tour), accommodations, most meals, and the services of a dedicated tour director. As per the itinerary, certain sightseeing opportunities are also included: tickets to special VIP access to the most famous landmarks, skip the lines, and when available, access to a personal local guide for expert commentary.
Australia tours usually make overnight visits to the area around Alice Springs, so visitors can get a taste of the Outback. While this is a remote region in the center of the country, there are farmers and ranchers who make their homes out here. Also, this is where you find Uluru, formerly known as Ayers Rock. It is a sacred place for the Aboriginals, who were the first inhabitants of Australia.
