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 New Zealand 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 money, as not only is a porterage service included at the hotels, all tipping and gratuities are taken care of.
Hotels handpicked by Scenic Tours
Accommodation with Scenic Tours is always of the highest calibre and in a great location. Our expert team has researched all our destinations in detail to ensure we never fail to provide the finest accommodation when available and accommodation of the highest possible standard when hotel options are more limited.
A feast of delights for the senses
Fantastic cuisine is an integral part of any great holiday, and at Scenic Tours we aim to provide an array of culinary delights. We include an extensive selection of meals during our tours, with a wide variety of quality cuisine. You’ll also enjoy some incredible meals in unforgettable locations, while receiving a genuine insight into local culture.
Get there at your own pace
Scenic Tours’ flexibility begins with flights from London Heathrow with either QANTAS or Emirates. However, if you would prefer to travel from another airport, then you can choose from five UK regional airports for a supplement of only £95 per person.
Your choice of stopover
To ease the lengthy journey to Australia, you can also enjoy the luxury of a three-night stopover at one of a range of fantastic destinations. You can choose from the following vibrant and exciting cities - San Francisco, Dubai, Singapore or Bangkok – all at no extra cost.
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. Scenic FreeChoice should not be confused with the ‘optional tours’ for which other operators charge extra, all experiences are included in the overall tour price, so regardless of what you choose; there is nothing extra to pay.
Scenic Enrich - Take home amazing memories
Scenic Enrich is a range of activities, many exclusive to Scenic Tours, which enable you to experience a destination in the most spectacular fashion imaginable. For example, you’ll visit Longlands Homestead, a working farm for an insight into New Zealand’s agricultural tradition before sitting down to a classic roast lunch.
A table with a spectacular view
The quality of cuisine throughout a Scenic Tours holiday is always of the highest calibre, but there are a number of opportunities for you to enjoy a culinary experience that will enliven all the senses. Enjoy the Sounds of Silence dinner – an evening of dining under the spectacular Outback sky, with Uluru as a backdrop.
