There are so many different kinds of coach tours now that no matter your age, ability or interests, there is bound to be one that will work for you.
Whether you're a seasoned traveller looking for a reason to go on your next tour or have never experienced a coach tour before and are unsure of what it entails, we are here to help!
Coach tours are a great way to travel for a variety of reasons. You can enjoy the journey while you sit back and relax, read a book, enjoy the scenery or event catch up on some much needed sleep.
There is a coach tour to suit everyone. No matter your age, who you're travelling with (friends, family, partner or even solo), what your interest are (food, culture, adventure etc.), how long you want to travel for, where you want to go or how active/non-active, budget/luxurious you want to trip to be, you are guaranteed to find the perfect tour for you.
You will be given handy and interesting information about each location such as basic greetings and phrases, fun facts, recommendations on hot spots to visit, things to remember such as laws, appropriation etc. and if you are ever unsure of something you can simply ask your tour guide.
Everything is booked for you. One you book and pay for your tour and flights, everything else if organised for you by the tour company such as your accommodation and activities.
Coach tours are flexible. If the group is going somewhere or doing something you aren't interested in, you don't have to go along. You are free to roam around and see or do things on your own as long as you are back on the coach in time.
Your tour guide will also take you to places you otherwise wouldn't have found on your own. Generally you will also get to do everything cheaper than if you had of booked things for yourself meaning you get more bang for your buck.
Most coaches are designed for long journey's and comfort. The majority of coaches have comfortable seats with extra leg room, an on board toilet, WiFi and even a fridge for medical items. Every coach is different and if you are looking for something specific have a chat to one of our travel agents and they can help you narrow down your options to find the perfect coach and coach tour for you.
Coach tours are a great way to meet new people from all over the World. Once a trip has finished, chances are you will stay in contact with someone from the trip. Sometimes people even organise future trips with the people they meet to each others hometowns or even set off on a new adventure together.
Coach itineraries are designed so you can get the most out of the time you have somewhere. Things are generally fast-tracked meaning less time waiting in queues, everything is pre-booked so you never miss out on anything and you never have to worry about getting from one place to the next.

Thank you to the beautiful Tammy who recently booked my holiday. She made everything so easy. I highly recommend booking through her.
We couldn’t be happier with Redcliffe Travel. Their wonderful agent, Tammy, recently booked our flights to Zimbabwe. Her attention to detail was fantastic! Her communication was outstanding, keeping us updated and even checking in after our return to ensure our travel went smoothly. We highly recommend Tammy and the team at Redcliffe Travel.
We have just returned from our second holiday organised and booked through Tammy. It's so comforting to deal with such a professional and caring staff member. Thanks heaps Tammy outstanding service once again
The Australia part of our trip has sadly finished. In a word, it has been amazing! We owe a lot to our travel agent Tammy Aitchison, who asked the right questions, gave us insightful guidance when planning this trip and basically ironed out the wrinkles we would have undoubtedly experienced had it not been for her assistance. You will discover that her professionalism and attention to detail is world class and her customer service is second to none.
We had a terrific family holiday arranged by Redcliffe Cruise Travel and we wouldn't hesitate to have them assisting us with our next trip. Because we like you guys! Because you are a local company. Because we like having an agent behind us in the event things go wrong on the journey.
As popular as do-it-yourself travel is and as savvy as we are with all things online, there are some aspects of travel that are much better dealt with through a travel agency and someone who really knows what they are doing. Tammy and Redcliffe Cruise and Travel are so knowledgeable and experienced in dealing with those aspects of travel that are challenging. Its good to work through someone who knows what they are doing and who take as much interest in you having a great holiday as you do!!
The service provided is always helpful and comprehensive. The booking documentation is always delivered on time to allow checking and to make changes if necessary.
I have used Tammy at Redcliffe Cruise and Travel twice now to book our family holidays. We have found her to be very professional and efficient. She has also been very obliging when I have had to ask questions regarding our holiday. We will definitely be using her in the future.
