We include the things other operators leave out
At Scenic Tours we pride ourselves on our fully inclusive touring. Unlike other operators that charge additional fees for optional tours and meals, you have very little extra to pay for once you leave the UK. All excursions are included in the overall cost of the holiday, along with a wide selection of meals and hand-picked accommodation throughout.
You will be met at the airport in Australia and transferred to your hotel. Then, at the end of your holiday you’ll be transferred to the airport for departure. When travelling with Scenic Tours, there is no need for you to carry your bags or large amounts of additional money, as not only is a porterage service included at the hotels, all tipping and gratuities are also taken care of.

Scenic FreeChoice – it’s what makes us different
Our exclusive Scenic FreeChoice concept offers you the freedom to personalise your touring experiences to suit your individual tastes. So, if you have a particular interest or hobby then you’ll find something to suit you.
