"Great Tour Experiences provides just that; they provide great tour experiences. We traveled to Australia (Sydney, Brisbane, and Cairns) with Charmaine and Michelle, and we could not have had a better experience. They made dealing with 220 people look easy. It was impressive. They provide great service, and they have their hearts in the right place. They’ll do nearly anything to ensure that you have a great experience. I would travel with them again, and I plan on doing so in the future. I highly recommend them for your next tour to Australia or New Zealand."
John G. Hermanson,
Director of Orchestras, USA
"Charmaine has been working in the travel industry for over 14 years. As a music educator, I have always looked at ways of enriching the musical experiences that students can access while at school. To this end, I have engaged the extremely reliable services of Charmaine and her team on several occasions for overseas music tours, including three visits to NZ and the USA across several schools. Each time the service has been exemplary with Charmaine placing the client's interests and needs at the forefront of planning while keeping tour costs within budget. Each tour has always included on the ground concierge and tour guide services enabling smooth flowing tours. Being a long way from home on tour and having a student lose a passport can be daunting, but Charmaine’s company were with us every step of the way until solutions were at hand. If you're looking for excellent service that moulds to your tour needs, I can highly recommend Charmaine without reservation."
High School Principal
"Dear Charmaine, I was so impressed from the beginning of our tour of Australia to the end with your skills and those of your wonderful husband, Adrian. Your dedication to the benefit and well being of our large group of 216 band/choir & orchestra students and their parents was endless. Your planning was creative with an eye to economy and helping to stretch our resources to include some really cool attractions that I didn’t know existed. You showed great patience and problem solving skills that were really helpful with such a large group. I was amazed that you were able to make contact with and enlist the cooperation of Aussie school music directors to host our young musicians in concert with theirs in nice settings with excellent audiences.
I can heartily recommend the services of Great Tour Experiences in the planning and execution of a fantastic tour experience of a lifetime in Australia or New Zealand. We will definitely be back!
Many thanks for all you did for our student group."

"I have been organising an excursion to New Zealand with Charmaine for ten years now and always found her to be extremely professional and responsive to any suggestions.
Issues have been minor in nature and always dealt with, with a single phone call.
Our Earth Sciences trip to the North island has become self-promoting, with siblings and friends of students who have attended in the past lining up for the trip. We are now in a position where we have a substantial waiting list for students wishing to attend".

"On a number of occasions, Hockey Australia Country has engaged the support of Charmaine and her team from Great Tour Experiences to set up and conduct their representative tour of New Zealand.
The Australian Country teams always look forward to a great experience when touring New Zealand – tough competition on the field and amazing hospitality, things to do and see off the field.
Charmaine and her team have an extensive range of contacts for all aspects of a group tour into New Zealand and always get a good deal and ensure you get the best quality available".
From a Tour Manager’s perspective, they minimise the stress and anxiety when getting a group on the road.
