A history of creating lifelong memories

AAT Kings are true pioneers of the coach travel industry in Australia, having commenced operations as Pykes Tours back in the 1920s. The company led the way in their market through the mid to late 1900s and in 2000 expanded to New Zealand. In 2002, AAT Kings became the first tour operator to incorporate authentic and interactive Aboriginal cultural experiences into their tours.

They still maintain a commitment to provide every traveller with incredible experiences, whether that be creating Aboriginal dot paintings on a guided tour through Australia, cruising down Tasmania's Gordon River on a small group tour, or exploring the Waitomo Glow Worm Caves in New Zealand

Thank-you Georgie for the seamless booking of our tour to Western Australia, the prompt responses to our emails, all the holiday tips, airport transfers, and pre-tour accommodation, your helpfulness was appreciated! Our tour was very comprehensive of the region, WA is very spectacular. Our Tour Director Sylvia was very accommodating and knowledgeable, and our bus driver Tom was great. Tom drove our bus very smoothly and at a pace that we could enjoy the scenery, he also made sure our bus was clean inside and out every night. Sylvia lived in the region and was able to bring local perspective and personal stories that added character to what we were seeing. We saw an amazing amount of beautiful WA plus the gorgeous wildflowers, and we especially enjoyed the photo stops along the way, we had nice food and interesting travel companions. Can't wait for the next time we travel, and will certainly book through Global Journeys!

Our coach driver and tour guide were fantastic! Full of knowledge personality and just a complete pleasure! Would love to tour with them both again! An asset to the company!

With two thousand kilometres to be covered on this tour it does make for some long driving days but the itinerary provided for ample comfort stops and opportunity to stretch the legs. Highlights were Monkey Mia, Red Bluff lookout at Kalbarri, the Pinnacles and the aboriginal cultural show at Yanchep NP. Best accommodation was at Kalbarri while Ibis at Geraldton was a little disappointing. AAT Kings do a good job and we will probably travel with them again. Thanks again to Georgie for her efficient organisation of our booking. We will definitely be using Global Journeys again for our 2015 tour.

We have been on several guided coach tours before. This one stood out the most as with only a small number of guests on board, the tour was very personal and intimate. Easy, relaxed and enjoyable. No rush. Tour Director Lu was very knowledgeable, caring and a perfect entertainer. Our coach driver was also a great expert. 'Inclusions' and 'optionals' were well balanced. Most importantly unlike our experience before on several other tours, there was no pressure to buy the 'optionals'. Always honest advise was provided. Being in New Zealand, tipping did not seem to be a big issue either. Overall a great enjoyable holiday. Will do it again!
