Escorted Motorhome Tours 2020
Gallivanting Oz escorted motorhome tours perfectly blend the mix of freedom on the road (we don’t encourage ‘convoy’ driving, however your tour leaders are close at hand), camaraderie of other likeminded travellers, and comfort/security of knowing all the hard work has been done for you and you will not miss a thing. Our tours are unique small group tours, with a maximum of eight motorhomes. We’d love to have a chat with you by phone to help create the motorhome holiday of your dreams!
Consistently, the feedback is that our happy travellers cannot believe how much is included with our tours and how much more was seen than if they had travelled on their own. Our tour concept is unique, and unlike anything else you’ll find out there – meaning you’ll get that one-of-a-kind experience that you have been searching for.
What is an Escorted Motorhome Tour?
An escorted motorhome tour with Gallivanting Oz will provide you with a great mix of adventure, the outdoors, sightseeing, relaxing and socialising and are perfect for first time motorhomes or those more experienced that prefer the camaraderie of group travel.
Our Australian escorted motorhome tours give you the opportunity to see and do as much as you’d like to each day. Our escorted tours are highly organised, yet very relaxed giving you the comfort of knowing you aren’t missing anything without having to do hours upon hours of research; we’ve taken care of that for you!
You will travel in small groups (no more than 8 motorhomes) of likeminded people, and while this is an escorted tour, we do encourage you to explore at your own pace during the day with the support of our tour escorts close at hand. In fact, you’re in complete control of your time and are free to roam and uncover the route in at your own pace with the aid of detailed travel notes, maps and driving/sightseeing instructions that you can follow for each day of your trip. Your tour leaders run through all the amazing opportunities each evening, helping you tailor your day for your own best adventure.
The great thing about our small group tours and the way we successfully operate these, is that there is no waiting around in the morning waiting for others to clean their teeth or feeling rushed when you want to stop at get that great picture! You can be comfortable with timings, as you’ll have a suggested start time each day to ensure you make the most of your days.
Of course we have loads of inclusions and attractions along the way – some of these will be at specific times, like a boat tour for example, and others are more flexible. The great thing about these escorted tours, is that we have included so much, there is no need to be dipping into your pocket all the time for entry fees and the like. The exceptions to this are of course scenic flights as they aren’t for everyone, and any special interest activities that will only suit a small portion of the group. We like to keep our tour pricing as competitive as possible so the inclusions are what we believe will give you the best and varied look at the route you are travelling.
Every evening the group catch up at the night’s destination and share tales of the days adventure at ‘happy hour’ which could be around the camp fire or overlooking a beautiful vista. You’ll find even on the longer days of driving that the tour leaders will have something up their sleeve to keep it fun.
The prices on each of our escorted motorhome tours include a premium motorhome (choice of two or four berth; both with toilet/shower) with the highest level of insurance cover (no large bond!), experienced tour escorts, entrance into all the must-see attractions/boat cruises and activities enroute (not scenic flights), campground costs and a few group meals plus other extras.
Fuel, food (except when we have noted a group meal included), alcohol, items of a personal nature, and if there was any special interest activity not already included, like scenic flights are not covered in the cost. We do have so many wonderful inclusions that may of those on tour will not spend anything extra on sightseeing.
We find it hard to put everything into words that is included as part of our tours, however we know from the consistently positive feedback, that our guests consider it value for money and an excellent holiday experience. We are very proud of that.
