Book this tour!!

Coming to Australia solo was one of the scariest things I have ever done, but the team at WTT made sure I never felt alone through the whole process.
Even before I arrived in the country, they were on hand to answer any questions or worries I had over email and video call.
After an amazing week packed full of fun activities and new friends, I continued on to travel the East Coast with a bunch of us from the tour.
I didn't realise how much support we would continue to receive after the week and WTT planned all my onwards travel so it was amazing to have everything sorted and enjoy the trip without any worries or stress.

Best week of my life!!!

I was so nervous to come to Australia by myself for the first time but Welcome to Travel couldn't have made it easier. From answering my million questions before my trip, to taking care of us during the tour and all the post trip support from the amazing girls in the office - I feel so lucky to be part of the WTT family.
The Welcome to Sydney tour was the best week of my life! I had so much fun, got to experience lots of really cool things, tick off some bucket list items, and I made so many friends who I am now traveling the east coast with.
At the end of my tour WTT planned my whole east coast trip and booked it all for me in less than 2 hours! The team are so talented at what they do and shared lots of personal recommendations with us.
I would recommend this tour to anyone coming to Australia for the first time whether it's just to travel or to come on a working holiday. You won't regret it!!!

Best Week Of My Life

When I started planning my trip to Australia I was quite clueless about where to start and I had never travelled on my own before. I learned about Welcome to Travel's tour in Sydney after seeing some videos of my favourite YouTubers & TikTokers and reading their reviews and booked on. Best decision of my life!

The tour week was insane!! I met other people like me wanting to meet new people and get ticking off some amazing bucket list ticks. We went from 20 strangers to a close family in just a couple days during the tour all thanks to how inclusive our guide was. The tour included an amazing Walking Tour of Sydney, Cocktail Making, Foodie Stops, Surf Camp, Dolphin Boating, Wine Tasting just to name a few things. Honestly had the best week of my life and miss it already. If you're thinking about doing something like this it is worth every penny! I'd do it again in a heartbeat. So much love to the Welcome to Travel team!!

Great tour and start to my Australia Travels

100% recommend. I had a really funny and unforgettable time with Welcome to Travel. A big thanks to Welcome to travel for ensuring that we were all having fun on the tour and always being a good laugh. don’t normally do group tours but Welcome To Sydney is worth the time/money/commitment!
Such a range of experiences across the week made all the better by the knowledge and hilarious Tommy!

Best week of my life!!

I travelled with Welcome to Travel in 2022, on their Welcome to Sydney tour.

We did a lot of fun activities and saw so much of the city and the surroundings!

I met so many amazing people on this tour, so I would definitely recommend this tour when you are scared of not meeting people.

After my tour they helped me plan an amazing trip through Australia, and every time I have a question I can still message them and they always give me the best support.

I would 100% recommend this tour to anyone! <3

This tour was the best start for my Australia travels - thank you Welcome to Travel!

I have had the best week on the Welcome to Sydney tour! It is such amazing value for money as it included all accommodation and so many fantastic bucket list activities, I particularly loved the surf lesson and the dolphin watching boat trip!

The other travellers on the tour were all solo backpackers in the same position as myself and we went from strangers at the beginning of the week to making life long friends who I am travelling parts of the East Coast of Australia with!

Our tour guide Alex was brilliant, he made the whole tour so enjoyable, has a great sense of humour and really cared about the group.

Welcome to Travel have unique, unrivalled aftercare following the tour as they also helped plan my onward travels and I will be turning to them once I start looking for my first job in Australia. I would definitely recommend booking a trip with them if you are coming to Australia.

Thank you SO much Welcome to Travel for the best week!

Couldn't have asked for a better week!!!

As a solo traveller I was very nervous and apprehensive about booking a tour. After being in Australia less than 24 hours I’d realised it was the best decision I could’ve made.

The welcome to travel team made everything so easy and the people I’ve met on this tour are the best group of people I could’ve wished to meet. Our tour guide has been an absolute dream and has made this tour 1000x better than what I’d initially expected. The perfect combination of exciting/fun activities and help for the future.

The only negative about this week is that it’s had to come to an end but I now have the most incredible few weeks up the East Coast to look forward to - all planned by the amazing team at WTT!

I can’t emphasise enough how much everybody should book this tour. You, your friends and your friends friends. Just book it ❤️

Thank you so much to all at welcome to travel! It’s been the best week ever!

Best Week Ever!!!

I had Tommy as my guide back in 2022 -
He was caring and understanding but overall a great leader.

I would recommend this to anyone - who is wanting to make friends and have the best start to their Australia adventure.

We shredded waves, found hidden waterfalls, walked from Bondi to Coogee.

They then helped me go travelling up the East Coast of Australia where I bumped into several people who had done previous tours both in Melbourne and Sydney with Welcome to Travel.

Even 9 months on they still give job support.
