    All of our travel and tour packages are fully flexible. Each is a TEMPLATE to be used as a framework around which you can customise an itinerary to suit. The minimum numbers are flexible as well and groups can be as small as two people for a self-guided holiday. After discussion, we'll go away and prepare a tour plan (including best value pricing) to suit your ideas and preferences.

    Accommodation is supplied in Noosa area for 2 nights. It will be resort style rated Silver standard or above. This means, very high quality accommodation. Bedding is arranged to suit the number of persons staying. All accommodation is subject to change subject according to availability however it will be as central as possible and very high quality.

    We try to include as much as possible to avoid any surprises however some optional activities might be offered. Included activities are shown on each listing. Also shown are exclusions.

    All tours are flexible. In this case the base tour package has been designed for a club or other larger group on an "Exclusive group charter" basis. However it can be modified to suit a "Small group charter" to suit groups of as few as 6 people. Couples or small groups of say 3 to 6 could do this trip as a self-guided holiday.

    General Tour Package FAQ's

    Yes, the idea of our tour packages is to get you to the destinations on the itinerary where you can stay with the main group or go off on your own if you prefer. Flexibility is the essential ingredient.

    Yes, however please ensure that you mention this requirement so we can be certain that arrangements are made where needed. You do need to be traveling with a person who will provide personal assistance.

    Yes, and if rain is forecast you should be prepared with a compact umbrella or rainproof jacket as preferred.

    Yes we do. Dietary requirements affect included set meals and will be taken into consideration during the planning process.

    All tours can be operated on a "Group-guided" basis. A complete "Tour Manager Notes & Guide" manual is supplied to the group leader (trip organizer). Included is a comprehensive daily itinerary, driver instructions and information about each part of your tour to enable you to provide entertaining commentary. Also included are checklists and reminders about daily tasks. The end-result is easy-flowing trip organisation, fewer issues and very happy tour participants. Overall it means less stress and a lot more fun for everyone.

    If a tour director is supplied in an example tour package it will be shown as an inclusion. But this is very flexible and if not included as standard, can be arranged if preferred. If you are part of a social group such as Probus, the trip organiser will often enjoy taking on this role. We provide comprehensive information and guidance for "hands-on" trip organisers. This includes a "how-to" guide and starter information about the places visited on the tour.

    Yes, definitely. All charter tour packages are simply "templates" as a starting point for customising a tour to suit. We then we apply the discounts available to you, your club or corporate group.

    All tour packages are flexible. Various options are already published. (See the Pricing section for the tour you are interested in.) Many will show "Join a departure" dates to suit couples and singles. If you represent a club or other group, please click the "Enquiry" button to request pricing for your group size as pricing is often affected by the number of people.

    We try to include as much as possible to avoid any surprises however some optional activities might be offered. Included activities are shown on each listing. Also shown are exclusions.

    "Self-guided" (self-drive) is a trip designed for couples and groups of up to 8 people (such as two to four couples) traveling together using a single car or 7 to 12-seater van. It means that you guide yourself on the trip. "Group-guided" means the tour is for a larger group on a bus with a driver and the group leader (trip organizer) as tour director. A professional tour director can be supplied if required.

    One of the challenges in managing tour groups is making sure everyone can hear what is being said. Audio-guide equipment enables the tour guide or manager to communicate via microphone and headset with all members of the tour group. For groups of 12 or more a tour-guide system is recommended.

    On multi-day tours where accommodation is supplied you will often have a choice of accommodation types at the same hotel or resort. We'll find out your preferences in the early stages of planning your trip.
