Wow! Highly Recommended

From picking us up at the airport to getting our tours planned, this couldn't have gone any smoother. We had first rate tours, with great guides and interesting itineraries. They worked with us to incorporate things we had booked privately and made it all into one really cohesive program. They checked up on us to see how things were going and to keep us informed of our flight schedules. Truly a great company.

Southern World Australia handled our hotel arrangements (Langham), transfers from the ship and to the airport, tickets to the Australian Open, and a private tour of the Yarra Valley during our 5 day stay in Melbourne.  The hotel was in a marvelous location.  Transfers were all on time and extremely courteous. The tickets to the tennis were waiting for us at the hotel and we had great seats.  We thoroughly enjoyed our day long private tour of the Yarra Valley with our host, Jeff.

Every detail of our trip to Australia was perfect.  We saw everything--great excursions, all of the top sights, terrific and knowledgeable guides, and a company on which to rely when far from home.  I wouldn't have changed anything on our itinerary!  When a flight was cancelled and some reservations needed to be changed--no problem.  Everything was handled seamlessly.  Fabulous and memorable trip!

Stephanie, Southern World Australia and I worked on this Australian trip for myself, my husband, 13 year old son and nephew for about a year. I knew that we would have to plan a trip that would keep the boys active and allow us to see all the desired sights. Stephanie did it and we all had a great time on our 2 week vacation. The boys were happy doing things like hiking the Sydney Harbor Bridge, fishing, throwing a boomerang, zip lining, snorkeling and hiking. I was happy exploring and seeing the Australian wildlife such as kangaroos, wallabies, koala bears, a platypus and sea lions on the coast of Kangaroo Island! My husband enjoyed all the activities and was able to relax because everything went off without a hitch. A friendly guide or driver met us at each location and all we needed to worry about was having fun! Thanks Southern World Australia for getting everything planned and making everything so easy for us!

Surprised we had 2 tour guides together for a one-day tour of Melbourne - we should have worked that out better. Phillip Island Penguin tour on January 1 was SUPER busy with full food options - glad we didn't take food as Southern World instructed us to do - bad information. Arrival in Sydney Airport was terrible - driver went to wrong terminal at direction of office - it was difficult and slow to connect with driver which required lots of time on phone (international minutes) while waiting.

Tour was excellent. Guide was friendly and knowledgable and willingly shared a lot of local knowledge with us throughout the day. Hunter Valley is a long drive (2 hours) from Sydney and our visit was during the recent heat wave, but we were comfortable in the air conditioned van and were provided with ice water throughout the day. We allowed the guide to select the small, boutique wineries we visited and were not disappointed. The staff at all were welcoming and knowledgable about wine. We purchased several bottles to take away. A terrific tour!

From the moment we stepped off the plane in Sydney until we boarded a plane for New Zealand in Tasmania, we enjoyed incredible experiences. Our tour was fashioned after our requests, so all of our activities were personalized. One hotel choice (Sydney) was questionable, and we were overall disappointed with Melbourne (except the penguins!), but that was not the tour director's fault. Our itinerary was varied and included many highlight places and events. The pace was reasonable so we could enjoy everything!

Indian Pacific, The ghan

On this vacation we travelled from Sydney to Perth on the Indian Pacific. This was our second trip across Australia by train and we have to say that the staff on the train(s) are absolutely first class. Nothing is too much trouble for them, well done. What we didn't know is that the staff have a shift change in Adelaide so the staff either return to Sydney on the next train or travel north to Darwin on Ghan. Low and behold, the staff we had travelling south from Darwin to Adelaide we the same as that on the Indian Pacific from Sydney to Adelaide. All of them that we spoke to recognised us and asked about our travels since they had last seen us. Great people on great trains. Thank you all. Harvey.

Trip Of A Lifetime

By: Fruitman

Reviewed on: 07 May 2017

Our recent trip to Australia/New Zealand was the best vacation (so far) that we have taken. We have never been away any longer than two weeks so planning a four week vacation to Australia and New Zealand was a challenging proposition. Southern World was a big reason for the success of our trip. All of the various tours, hotels and travel ideas they provided turned out to be great. They were able to take our preliminary ideas for the trip and make them a reality. Everything went very smooth throughout the entire trip. Most of the hotels we stayed at welcomed us with little gifts to help us celebrate this anniversary trip. And their local representatives were always available for questions and changes while we were in both countries. We always felt we were only a phone call away if we ran into any problems. That was very important to us on this trip.

We were very pleased with the hotel and tours advised and booked with Southern World. We stayed at the Peninsula Hotel in Port Douglas....charming boutique hotel near the beach with large, comfortable rooms. The hotel personnel were very nice and accommodating. While in the area, we enjoyed a boat tour to dive/snorkel on the Great Barrier Reef, visited Cape Tribulation and the Daintree Rain Forest and a wonderful wildlife habitat to get up close with koala, crocodiles and kangaroos (to name a few). Southern World also booked us into the Grace Hotel in Sydney. Lovely hotel in an ideal location for sightseeing. I appreciated how well organized the company is....we received detailed travel information with maps, etc., on our arrival in Port Douglas. I would definitely recommend this company.

We recently spent a month touring Australia and many of the logistical details were finalized by SWA. We were very pleased with the service, starting from the welcome package of brochures and maps awaiting us at our first stop. Every part of our trip was completely enjoyable except for once location in Tasmania. We visited the Lemonthyme Resort near Cradle Mountain. While the location is beautiful, getting there was a challenge. The 8 km road leading to the resort is very narrow and winding up the mountain. Clients should be warned to arrive prior to dusk as driving that road in the dark, for a newcomer would be a challenge. In terms of the rooms, the blankets and pillows seemed very worn and could use refreshening. The main drawback to the inn was the food. It was not enjoyable!!! Other than this one stay, everything was superbly planned!!! Thanks very much

I took my Son, Daughter-in-law and 7 year old grandson for 12 days to Australia. We thoroughly enjoyed every adventure! The guides in Sydney were entertaining and informative. The Blue Mountains were a highlight. The Tesla transfer was very chic. At the One & Only in Wolgan Valley, the accommodation was very cozy. The food was excellent from Tasting menus for me to pizza for the 7 year old. Kangaroos and a few wombats were wandering on the grounds near our cottage. The highlight was the cycling trail.They had kid size bikes and helmets. A troop of 100+ kangaroo were hopping along side us. Spectacular! The Emporium hotel in Brisbane is very trendy with a great jazz bar. Perfect location to wander along the riverside and near so many restaurants. Overall an excellent trip for all of us.

We enjoyed our travels in Australia, particularly the exploration of critters in the wild, south of Sydney. Unfortunately, it's probably all burned out now. We liked everything we did in Sydney and by Hamilton Island. Cairns and the rain forest were great, although a lot of riding in a bus. All of our tour guides tried to make our experience special and all succeeded. Uluru was special, as we had expected, and there the tours and guides were extraordinary. We had the opportunity to explore Alice Springs on our own time and that was great too. Melbourne we enjoyed as well, especially the excursion out of the city. All in all, we were busy but pleased with how much we had the opportunity to explore and to learn.

The day we arrived in Sydney the vouchers were at the hotel. The Sydney Harbour Bridge climb had been booked flawlessly, although the 1300 steps to get to the top was all my doing. The trip to Uluru, formerly known as Ayers Rock was almost flawless except for one small missed payment. The tours around the Rock where small groups, which made the experience even more jawdropping. Their honesty about visiting Uluru was reassuring as they advised us seven days was too long and three enough. This fact saved us money in the long term. Many companies would be out for the money, Southern World seems to be out for the client experience. Well done Marisa Brooks in Paris, Ontario for your investigative prowess in arranging them for us.

There were 2 tours that we did from Cairns - a Nautilus Helicopter trip to the reef and the rainforest. It was a 1 hour tour and it was really good as was the weather. Nice views of the reef, the city, the coast and up into the rainforest. The pilot Matt exceeded in giving us the best views he could. Our cultural tour was very good. There were only 2 of us. Our driver and guide was Mark. He was knowledgeable and informative as well as being very personable. Our plans needed to change on the day so Mark arranged for us to meet a local Mossman artist – an aboriginal man and he told us stories about himself, his art and local culture – then gave us a lesson and we each did a little artwork! We then went to Mossman Gorge and met Ben our guide who took us around an area of the gorge that normally we would not be able to visit. We walked around and he showed us trees and plants that are and were used by the local Aborignial tribe. We had lunch and afternoon tea provided.

There were some problems, unfortunately often on weekends or late in the evening when Southern World was hard to reach. Unfortunately, one instance was an early Sunday morning flight from Canberra to Melbourne. The driver did not show up. I called Southern World and they said, "Take an Uber". Another unfortunate instance was in Brisbane where I was booked for an overnight stay at a Novotel Hotel. The documents from Southern World said I could walk from the airport to the hotel. That was not the case. I found out that I missed the complimentary bus to the hotel because I was trying to retrieve my suitcase which had been booked through to Prosepine. I spent the night without my suitcase, took a taxi to the hotel and another from the hotel to the airport the next day. Not a good experience for me. On the other hand, the tours Southern World booked for me, a sunset sail off Fremantle and a 2 night 2 day sail in the Whitsunday, were awesome! Well done on those counts.
