TOURING & INCREDIBLE JOURNEYS T R A V E L 2 ’ S

Incredible Journeys by Travel 2 brings together multiple destinations, modes of transport, touring styles and unforgettable experiences to excite and inspire those who are looking for more from their holiday.With tours to suit any budget and suitable for all age groups, you can

I N D E P E N D E N T T O U R I N G

If you’re looking to discover the heart and soul of a country or region, then independent touring could be the option for you. Our selected itineraries give you the freedom of touring without a group but the convenience of having your accommodation, guided sightseeing and transport prearranged and tailored to your specific requirements; leaving you with plenty of time to explore all that the area has to offer.

E S C O R T E D T O U R I N G

For those who enjoy the company of like-minded travellers, an escorted tour is a great way to see world-famous sights, or to discover a path less well-trodden. From the comfort of a large, air-conditioned coach, and with the help of an expert local guide, you’ll learn about your destination in a safe and fun environment, with many of your meals also included.

S M A L L G R O U P J O U R N E Y S

If you prefer the convenience of an escorted tour but want something a little more intimate, consider a small group tour.Travel on small group tours can be on a variety of modes of transport and in smaller groups (group size varies by region and operator) so you’ll enjoy a unique experience.With the help of an expert local guide or driver, you’ll learn all about your destination from someone with genuine passion and knowledge.

S E L F D R I V E S

For many destinations, there is no better way of appreciating them than on the open road. Self drive touring gives you the freedom to explore your chosen destination at your own pace without worrying about booking each individual hotel. We partner with the best car hire companies worldwide and suggest the best routes. These tours can be tailored to your requirements to create the road trip of a lifetime.

R A I L & C R U I S E J O U R N E Y S

Some of the world’s most iconic experiences feature amongst our rail and cruise journeys. The Trans Mongolian Express, Japan’s bullet trains, Canada’s Rocky Mountaineer, as well as cruises to the Galápagos and the polar ice cap of Antarctica are just a few of the unforgettable experiences we offer.

EXPLORE WESTERN AUSTRALIA

Western Australia is an extraordinary place.

A road trip through the SouthWest offers a feast for all the senses, with award-winning wine and truffle producers sitting next to towering forests and pristine beaches.

P E R T H

Perth is the perfect gateway to Australia.

Over $17 billion has been invested in transforming the city, with scores of new public spaces and hotels like the luxe Crown Towers to enjoy. And because Perth is Australia’s sunniest capital city, whether you chose to swim with dolphins or dine in the latest rooftop restaurant, you can enjoy blue skies above.
