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!!

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

Job Title

What is your favorite travel memory?

My overall favorite travel memory is hiking Machu Picchu and seeing that sunrise after a tough trek, absolute magic.

My favorite Australian travel memory would kayaking through Katherine Gorge in the Northern Territory. The sun was beating down and the view was consistently perfect as I kayaked. I was truly in awe of the size of the towering cliffs on either side of me. I felt like I was just a floating little dot in comparison.

How have you changed/grown since working for your current company?

I have learned that not everything will work first time, and to not treat that as a negative.

You should think to look at it from the perspective of 'if that sounds amazing now, how good will it be when you redraft, redesign and rework it to perfection', and that's what we try and do with every aspect of the company, as opposed to settling with the easy option.

I suppose this is linked to the above but I've also learned more and more that myself and Darryl are ultimately accountable - if we don't put it in, we won't get it back. There's no relying on others which is hard, but also the ultimate freedom and feeling of pride when it comes off.

What is the best story you've heard from a return student?

There's no single one. It's always a special feeling to hear how our advice and personalized tips took passengers trips beyond their expectations. To know it's those experiences they're raving about to family and friends back home naturally gives you a lovely warm feeling.

If you could go on any program that your company offers, which one would you choose and why?

Well, probably the Welcome to Melbourne program... it's the only one we do! It's not that we're lazy, it's just where we're at this early in our business, and it's what we know best.

I have no doubt in my mind that Welcome to Melbourne is the most exciting, diverse and personalized arrival package that is on offer in Australia, and that's why I'd choose it.

What makes your company unique? When were you especially proud of your team?

Our company is based on the adventures of two best friends going traveling in 2010, with the idea of being home 6 months later. That's pretty unique.

What makes me proud is the fact we've consistently supported and competed with each other which has in turn aided our progression in our careers. We've had several ideas that we could have done for the sake of it but that's not us.

This is about the passion for the idea and how we can make it the best experience a traveller can get. The confidence and ambition to pursue an idea and work tirelessly to make it a success fills me with pride. I'm welling up here.

What do you believe to be the biggest factor in being a successful company?


It's important to discuss each idea at length, not only to decide if it's a good idea but also to progress a basic idea in to a much bigger idea that could have massively successful impact.
