Magical day out and Tom is the absolute best!

A fully enjoyable week with a great group of people and leaders. Transport to all activities included so nothing to worry about some meals included including a beach BBQ and a meal in the revolving restaurant overlooking Sydney .... both emence A good variety of activities to suit everyone from surfing and chilling on the beach to nights out and blue mountains (just to name a few). Not forgetting the amazing boat trip around the harbour (in my opinion the best activity) Tom and the other group leaders made sure we were constantly happy and smiling and enjoying ourselves, as well as sorting out our onward travels which saved a lot of time and stress ! Couldn't recommend this Grabatour experience more (I've even booked into another Grabatour Travel trip to Vietnam) Thanks for a great week Tom and team !!!!

Exceeded all expectations for me

The itinerary already looked amazing but each day out here was more than what we could have asked for! It's hard to choose a favourite day but the Botanical Garden day was insane! We had our own tour guide that showed us the best spots and shared stories from the aboriginals which was so interesting. We were so lucky to have a fantastic group as we were non stop laughing!! We were picked up from the airport by Tom who instantly made us feel relaxed and prepared us for the week ahead! !! Not only did he look after us all and made sure we experienced the best of the week he was hilarious and had us laughing and joking with each other within the first hour!! That's what made this week so much fun! I was also really impressed that although we had a group of 10 and very different people, he interacted with all of us slightly differently and in a way that made sure we all personally made the most out of our week. We had a free night but they went out of their way to take us to a really nice restaurant and wandered along darling harbour. I would recommend to every single person coming to Australia to book onto Grabatour! Thanks for the best week

Unforgettable tour!

The trip was amazing, moments I'll remember for the rest of my life! Made some amazing new friends and loved or group leader Kirsten. Along the way to Base she pointed out landmarks and locations of importance when traversing through Sydney.The next morning we met Tom,another leader in the Grabatour who helped us all relax and approachable way as we headed off around the harbour before starting our first activity on a week ram packed with things to do.While everything in the week was amazing I think my favourite day would have to be the first when we went out on the speed boat got to know each other then go to the pub quiz at the scary cannery. All in all Tom, Kirsten really went above and beyond the call of duty and I would not hesitate to suggest Grabatour to anyone I meet thinking of traveling

Tom will take you there at a really nice pace and a nice guy too!

I was on the Grabatour Australia starting the 20th of October, and had the most AMAZING week ever! Our tour guide, Tom was extremely friendly and really helped the whole group bond. Every day was filled with really fun activities. My favourite day was the coastal walk, it was really fun we ended the walk with a game of volleyball and a BBQ. It was so nice having not only the support of my tour leader, he was amazing at getting involved with us all and all so knowledgeable in helping us with our onward travel. I seriously recommend doing Grabatour Australia to everyone it is one of the best things I have ever done, such good value for money and it's given me unforgettable memories, stories and friends! Thank you so much Tom and Grabatour Travel!

Thoroughly enjoyable

Had the most amazing week with Grabatour. I loved every minute and the activities were brilliant. Surfing has to be the best day, we were picked up from the hostel and taken to a beautiful almost hidden island, we were taught to surf by pros! This was amazing because they stayed in the water with us and helped us catch waves that we wouldn't have been able to by ourselves! The food was also SO good here! I couldn't believe quite how much we've been given on this trip....the value for money has been brilliant!! Our tour guide was Kirsten and she was awesome throughout the whole week!! She made us all feel so comfortable with each other and we didn't stop laughing the whole week!!! I would not have been able to travel Australia without without Grabatour! Their travel talk was brilliant and stress free for me!!

Very well organised and timed

5.0 - Excellent
GRABATOUR! To sum up in one word unbelievable... the week was amazing from day one with a friendly pick up from the airport by Tom and a chat about Sydney and whats in store for the week. Base hostel is a perfect place to bunk down. Although all the activities where spot on everyone seemed to get better and better. Tom as a group leader was amazing he helped us out none end and joined in with the banter and 8days he has become a mate to everyone in the group! I would urge anyone and everyone to book on to Grabatour to make new mates and start your holiday/travel in style, and with all the support during and after the week is out of this world. Its feels like you can go and take anywhere on in Australia due to the help you can have from the guys at Grabatour (they are just a phone call away) All in all could not fault them in anyway worth every second of smiles and good times

Fun and a great trip well worth it

Deciding to do Grabatour is one of the best decisions I've ever made! The week was amazing, and I absolutely loved the whole week. Tom our awesome leader showed us around the City on day 1, followed by Jet Boating in Sydney Harbour which was so much fun. Surfing at the beach was probably my favourite day, but that's hard to say for sure as every activity was great. We enjoyed a private boat party around the harbour, a coastal walk followed by a BBQ and volleyball on the beach. I had so much fun on the nights out, pub quiz, fancy dress bar crawl to name a few. It's a fantastic way to meet people, especially if you're a solo traveller. The help we were given from Tom with our onward travel has been invaluable and the knowledge from all of the staff at Grabatour has been so helpful. I can't rate this trip highly enough!

Great tour

Grabatour is the perfect way to start a long trip in Australia for anyone who is unsure of how to get going. The first week is completely sorted for you and I really feel like they are there for me for help in the future. Sorting essentials like a bank account and sim cards is a great help. The week itself is an excellent way to see Sydney. My favourite part of the week was the Botanical Garden , as the views were gorgeous; our coastal walk from Bondi Beach was also good fun. My group leader was Tom, very nice guy, that helped with all questions we had but then also had lots of fun on nights out, he helped me a lot with not being the most confident person. The whole experience was amazing and I would definitely recommend it to anyone that wants to come to Australia and have an awesome time. Thanks for everything Tom.

trip well worth every cent

The trip was better than I thought it would be, the week was full of awesome activities that allowed me to come out of my comfort zone. A lot of walking around Sydney and surfing we got the bus out. I enjoyed meeting new people in the group as they are all in the same situation as I am ; making new friends was on of the best bits. Accomodation was pretty good, good area too, near shops and bars and only a short walk to the harbour. Tom was always there to help and has helped us all so much. He made sure that everyone was ok and was always making sure everything was running smoothly - I can't thank him enough for this awesome week! Grabatour Australia is a great way to make friends and find people to go travelling with. It's set me up for the next year. Thanks a million.

Excellent rating

Kirsten has been an awesome guide, not only is she a funny and super friendly who had the group in stitches all week, she is extremely knowledgeable about travelling in Australia and was able to answer even our most ridiculous questions about what we could expect whilst traveling here. All our activities were well organised and well lead and Kirsten was full of extra facts and cool info that even our external guides were missing out. She also gave loads of great advice about working in Grabatour and as this week is ending, I feel so much more confident than I did at the beginning. Serious stuff aside, we've had some amazing nights out with the group, With Kirsten partying with us, keeping us together and making sure we're all drinking enough goon! An epic tour, awesome people and an amazing group leader :)

Makes you want more !

This past week with Grabatour has been fantastic!!! I thoroughly enjoyed every single activity, especially the surfing. There was lots going on in the evenings too, so there was never a boring moment. Everyone in our group got along really well. Our group leader Tom was a top bloke. He coped well with an all girl group of 14 (massive respect for the chest waxing session!) and was always up for a laugh. He made sure everyone was getting involved and having a good time, and helped sort any problems or questions we had. Staying at base was really handy. It was close to the office and supermarkets, and the rooms and facilities were pretty good. We were given a lot of info and advice about CVs and finding a job over here too, which was really useful. All in all, a great first week in Grabatour and I'm really looking forward to spending the next year over here :D

Nice and informative day trip

Grabatour Australia has been brilliant! By far the best tour group I've used. So friendly, organized, fun and helpful with kicking off your new life in Grabatour. Grabatour Australia could not do enough for you. Get so much knowledge along the way and get everything sorted Tom has been a massive help and made the week so much fun. Really does help you on your way. Also such a good way to meet friends 5* trip would highly recommend and worth every penny! The check-in area is so helpful and convenient before travelling too they let you know every little bit of everything that needs to be done before leaving. I genuinely wouldnt have a clue where to start if i hadnt booked with Grabatour. Definitely looking at Grabatour Vietnam next. Recommend !!!

Great way to see around Sydney's surrounds.

Grabatour Australia was such a fantastic start to our adventure in Australia. From the weeks before when we were panicking about everything, Grabatour were incredibly helpful and guided us all the way. The airport pick up was on time and answered all our first questions, the hostel provided was clean, safe and full of great people. Our tour guide, Tom, was the highlight. He is hilarious, approachable, kind, caring, informative and was more like a new friend than a guide. He put up with our constant late mornings, showed us cheap places to eat and drink! He spoke for hours with us about our travel plans, with loads of advice and tips about how to travel well. He spoke to us all as individuals and constantly made sure we were happy (no matter how much banter we gave him)! I could not recommend Grabatour more. Thank you to Tom for everything this week, we'll miss him!

All round it is perfect

Grabatour Australia with our Tour Leader Tom was hands down the best week of my life! I wasnt expecting it to be as good as it was! from the moment I met Tom he was an absolute legend made me feel so relaxed and welcome and I knew instantly it was the best decision to sign up to Grabatour! We got lucky and were the guinie pigs for a new tour which involved a trip up to Port Stephens which included an overnight stay, Surfing on a secluded beach, Sandboarding and a hike up to an amazing viewpoint. Honestly, Sandboarding would have to be the highlight of the trip but I also loved the Private Sydney Harbour Cruise . Jumping in the harbour and having a laugh with everyone was so fun. Genuinely couldnt have asked for a better tour guide. Huge thanks to Tom. Such a good vibe, great group and even better leader. Thank you Grabatour team. I love you!!!

Lovely guide and most amazing viewpoints

Couldn't have asked for a better week with better people. Just a few of the many highlights of the week have been when we went jet boating and got absolutely drenched, another highlight of the week which has been my favourite part was when we went to Bondi beach and on the beautiful costal walk and had the best BBQ and played some rounders and volleyball on the beach. Another amazing highlight was when we went to Port Stephens and learned how to surf, went to see the kangaroos, went wine and beer tasting watched the sunset on Stockton sand dunes and ended the night with a campfire on the beach. This week has been absolutely incredible and wouldn't have been possible of nowhere near as good without our amazing tour leader Kirsten you are the best and funniest guy I've ever met and just want to say a huge thankyou for making this the best experience of my life
