I've travelled quite a bit, and UltimateOz is by far the best group tour I've ever been on! I was so excited to come to Sydney, and UltimateOz made the adjustment so easy! The tour guides and all the staff who work in the office are so welcoming and made me feel right at home. I was also really impressed with the variety of activities we did on the tour. We got to visit the main tourist attractions (nothing beats the Opera House!), but also parts of Sydney that I would not have gotten to see on my own. Basecamp is definitely a big plus! You get to do so much out of the city - sandboarding, holding reptiles, hiking - AND I got to meet a kangaroo joey!
The best part though was definitely the people! I made some amazing friends and hilarious memories, and I know we'll keep in touch! Even the tour guides became our friends and fit right into the group, but were there to help us whenever we had questions or problems.
Some more minor details that really made the trip that much better: accommodation and food. We stayed in a hostel in Sydney, but it was so clean and high quality compared to most I've been to (trust me, I've seen my fair share) - it felt more like a hotel. Plus there's a bar underneath (woop woop)! We also had amazing rooms at basecamp, and all the meals included were delicious (having flashbacks to the BBQ!).
A big reason I originally signed up with UltimateOz was to have help with jobs, housing, and other necessities the whole time I'm here. I'm definitely glad I did because having that security is a huge bonus to me. The first week just made me happier with my choice! UltimateOz is an incredible way to arrive in Australia, and I highly recommend the tour to anyone coming to Sydney for a gap year!
