15 Day Kimberley Complete (APT Australia)

Kimberley Complete Only criticism was on the last night at Cable Beach Resort, Broome. Some of us had to wait over 2 hours to get our luggage from the bus and to the room. Ours could not be found for longer than that. One person was given a key to a room, which on entering was already occupied. That evening at the Thai restaurant near the pool they were obviously short staffed. This is not APT's fault, but you need to know about it. Michelle White's help was very good.

22 Day Rockies Odyssey & Alaska Cruise (APT Canada & Alaska)

Rockies Odyssey & Alaska Cruise The Rockies Odyssey & Alaska Cruise was one of the best tours we have ever done. Yvonne was excellent very professional and very helpful. Jacky the tour director was outstanding the best tour director we ever had. We highly recommend this tour as we had lots of times to explore all those beautiful places I would say Lake Louise was the best even to be fair all were great places and remember to walk to the tea house on the other side of the lake it was amazing walk bit long but worth every minute. The Rocky Mountaineer Gold Leaf is a must - amazing way to travel through the mountains, waterfalls and the scenery was very beautiful. The cruise to Alaska was great. We loved Skagway and the Yukon excursion but the mpst amazing place was Glacier Bay - do not worry if you are not in the front of the ship as the ship will stay there for a while. The soup served while we were watching was great. Overall we really enjoyed every day of this tour - APT are the best do not waste your time checking other tours this is the best.

9 Day El Questro, Gorges & Purnululu (APT Australia)

El Questro, Gorges & Purnululu Probably my only comment is that although this is a 9 day trip, in reality it's 11 days, since it begins at 6am and ends after 5pm. It would be honest, and helpful, to maybe note that 'additional days may be required, before and after' or something to that effect. My understanding is that APT picks up at only 3 hotels in Broome. If we were given a list of those 3, perhaps we could have chosen which one. The Cable Beach Resort, however, was very nice (albeit, expensive). I certainly would have chosen to have been at a resort that had a direct pickup. APT, and our guide, Kat, were extremely competent. t was obvious they do many trips, but we felt special on this tour. A nice touch!

21 Day Gems of the Rockies & Alaska (APT Canada & Alaska)

Gems of the Rockies & Alaska Enjoyed the tour immensely, found dealing with Georgie at Global Journeys a pleasure. Although we never met face to face she was always very helpful and answered any questions promptly. Not a complaint but a suggestion - Leaving Sydney (at airport by 6.00am) in the morning and flew direct to Canada arriving early morning (again approx 9 am Canada Time) we were then transferred by limo (very nice) to our hotel. On arrival we were told that our rooms would not be ready untill at least 2.00 to 3.00pm due to rooms not being vacated till 12.00 noon and then cleaning etc had to be done. After a long 14+ hour flight, a room to at least freshen up on arrival would have been very much appreciated. Note: We were not the only people on tour with this same problem, but as you can imagine after flying for such a long time and then having a meet with the touring party that evening it made for a very tiring first couple of days.

28 Day Rockies & Alaskan Adventure (APT Canada & Alaska)

Rockies & Alaskan Adventure We travelled with APT to Canada/Alaska, and our tour guide and driver inspired such confidence that we could just sit back and soak up the magnificence. There were no problems and even the weather was perfect. This wasn't the cheapest of tours, but we felt it delivered everything it promised and the experience was a pleasure from beginning to end.
