This trip was fantastic from the accommodation, experiences, food and company. Albatross Tours think of everything and provide you with a very magical and well organised tour. We loved the flexibility of #mytime and were able to pop in and out of the organised activities as we wished. Maritza our tour guide (or Tour Mum) was amazing and made sure she was always one step ahead of us all. Our fellow tour companions became our tour family! I couldn't recommend Albatross Tours highly enough for all your travel experiences.

We spent way too much time squashed on a bus. 3 star hotels and no time to enjoy our locations as we arrived in the dark and left early morning. Not well planned and not worth the money we paid. Really disappointing. Will not be recommending Albatross Tours!

My partner Mike Coulthard and I would like to express our gratitude to Helen Sheehan (our tour manager) and Ermano (our coach driver) for the service provided on the Italian Grande Tour departure date 27 September 2015 to ensure that we had a wonderful memorable tour.
We have thoroughly enjoyed the tour and have found the variety in the places we have visited gave us a wonderful overview of Italy as it really is.
Helen worked hard to ensure that we enjoyed ourselves, offering suggestions for things to do, places to see and where tk eat in our down time. Helen also organized other treats on our behalf to make the trip more enjoyable including:
*An opera trip in Montecatini
*A gondola ride in Venice
*A wonderful dinner in Maiori at the Norman Tower
*As well as treats in board the coach such as rum chocolates and Baci chocolates.
We found Helen to have an intimate knowledge of the places we visited and she was always willing to share further information that she had sourced along the way.
We were also extremely appreciative that Helen had the foresight to change our program at times to ensure that outdoor activities were completed in the best possible weather.
We would like to also give kudos to Helen in how she managed a variety of different personalities on the tour and always with a smile.
Our driver Ermanno endeared himself to the tour group with his hearty buongiorno's each morning, courtesy and care for his passengers and precision driving in some very tight places and precarious roads. We were amazed at what he could do with our coach on tiny Italian Roads. Thankyou Ermanno for being part of our touring family...
We found the ability to stay at least a couple of nights in one spot (and these not being major cities) to be a wonderful help in obtaining a feel for the real Italy. We loved the family atmosphere of all of the hotels we stayed at during our trip and would be happy to return to each and every hotel if the opportunity presents itself in the future...
Overall we would have no hesitation in recommending Albatross Tours to friends or family. In fact we are hoping to be able to travel again with Albatross in the near future when we next visit Europe...

Safehands Travel organised a bespoke adventure to Rajasthan for me.

Kush (my guide) and the driver were wonderful travelling companions, I felt very safe which is so important for a solo female traveller. The driver skilfully negotiated some difficult roads occasionally with great care and professionalism.

Wonderful hotels chosen with care and very appropriate to my preferred taste.

I experience amazing restaurants away from the hotels, in the full confidence that Kush would choose well.

Travelled to villages off the beaten track, all adding to the wonderful experience of Rajasthan. From a camel ride across the desert to see the sunset to the magnificent Mehrangarh Fort, an amazing experience I will never forget.

Kush is a great guide and made my adventure complete with his knowledge, great sense of humour and patience. His enthusiasm and love for India and the desire to share his knowledge with others is endless.

Thank you to Rohit and all at Safehands for making my adventure so easy and enjoyable. Great care and attention were taken with the details of the journey with quick response to any questions. Fantastic service from first booking to the end of my journey.

Definitely will return to India and put myself again in the exceptionally capable hands of Rohit and his team, confident in the knowledge that it will be organised personally for me with the greatest of care, professionalism and attention to detail.

We did a 12 day comprehensive custom tour of Ladakh. We had great time. The trip was well organised and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The guide was excellent and the driver was good especially in the roads in remote areas. Safe Hands and Rohit were available when we needed them.

We spent three weeks touring Nepal and India. We can really recommend Safhands Travel and especially Mr. Rohit. The tour and itinerary suggested by Rohit was excellent. The service received by the Safehands representatives, welcomers, drivers and guides was first class. We will treasure our memories of this holiday. Thank you Rohit.

    About Albatross Tours

    Founded in 1995, Australia based Albatross Tours specializes in guided Europe travel for small to large groups.

    What Makes Them Stand Out?

    They offer premium coach tours through a select number of European countries. Their tours are enjoyed by Australians and New Zealanders which gives them even more focus and a great place to make new friends.

    Who Travels With Them?

    Their tours are attended by Australians and New Zealanders. All tours are capped at 28 people, though the average size is usually 22. On rarer occasions, groups may be as small as 11-12, but if you’re looking for a group that intimate, it’s not the standard with Albatross. They are best suited to older travelers, aged 45 and up.

    Where Do They Operate?

    They operate throughout Europe, mainly in Western and Central Europe.

    Why Travel With Them?

    For a coach tour experience of Europe, led by experts, where you’ll travel in comfort and ease - seeing both major attractions and more off the beaten track locations as well. They always offer a good balance of free time to guided activities on their tours, so they are perfect if you enjoy the idea of planning some independent activities.
