HOW IT WORKS

Step 1 – Learning more about you

It begins with a conversation. Tell us when you’re coming, who your travel companions are, and what brings you to our lovely city. Share your hopes for your experience, the times you have available, and your budget expectations. Through further conversations we’ll delve deeper into what makes you tick so we can manage your expectations and customize your itinerary.

Step 2 – Meeting your budget, time and experience expectations

Starting rates are competitively valued for a half-day (4 continuous hours), and for a full-day (8 continuous hours) including a custom itinerary, and an experienced fully qualified guide to host you the entire time in luxury transportation. All incidentals are quoted separately, and gratuities are at your discretion. Larger groups require a larger vehicle(s) thus an increase in rate. Corporate incentive and multi-day excursions rates are quoted on an individual basis. Premiums for national holidays, peak seasonal events or late nights may apply.

Step 3 – Confirming your plans

We’ll ask for a $100 non-refundable deposit (or 50% depending on the scope and scale of the project) so we can get started hand-crafting your unique itinerary. This will be outlined at time of quotation. We’ll process the balance of payment 30 days prior to your arrival.

Step 4 – Finalising the details

You’ll be presented with an overview & budget that is then massaged until you’re fully satisfied with the timing of your day. To ensure your plan is unique and isn’t duplicated by anyone else, many of the individual elements will remain a surprise until you arrive (names of venues, etc.).Your budget will include a flat rate for our time and transportation, as well as an estimate of the anticipated extra costs for meals, entrance fees, etc. so you know what to expect. Alternatively we can include these in the cost of the rate so you don’t have to worry about paying for anything on the day.

Step 5 – Welcome!

You will be picked up in a luxury vehicle suitable to the size of your group where we will accompany you throughout your experience, acting as your personal guides to the city. Remember that every itinerary we design is fully customized and unique to your needs. You have the flexibility to start and end when and where you desire, see what you want to see at your own comfortable pace, and ask as many questions as you like via intelligent, personable conversations.

TESTIMONIALS
  • “Worked with Australian Luxury Escapes for 2 different tours: one in Sydney, one in Daintree. In both cases, the cars were clean and comfortable, on time, and the logistics were excellent (lunch locations were good for both). And in both cases the guides were interesting: Bob in Sydney provided some great history of the city during an interesting drive on a busy sunny Sunday that caused some traffic jams; Michelle in Port Douglas/Daintree was EXCEPTIONAL in terms of her information as well as making sure we got to see things without huge crowds. (For example, she skipped one stop early in the day because there was a big bus there, and we caught it later in the day on the way back. We were extremely grateful!)”

  • “Our first trip with this company was to the Daintree Rainforest with tour guide Michelle. She had vast knowledge on the areas we visited and was very accommodating and offered great customer service. We even had a surprise trip where we hand-fed some Wallabies. It was a great day, a full day and one of our favourites during our 3 week visit to Australia. Our second trip was to Phillip Island which had a little bit of an edge as i proposed to my girlfriend on this trip. I contacted their head office asking for advice of good spots and if they were able to get some champagne and glasses for the moment (as i couldn’t get away from my gf to do this!) and they went above and beyond. Our tour guide Ian offered me advice and came up with a plan and after the proposal he magically appeared with bubbly and took some photos of the occasion which have been sent to us. All of this was with no extra cost. A restaurant we visited even gave us a glass of bubbly.The tour was great too, Ian again was full of knowledge and had plenty of little facts. We saw koalas and the penguin march but we also saw some penguins in the wild thanks to Ian’s knowledge.Thanks for helping me with my big moment and providing us with 2 unforgettable days”

  • “We felt compelled to share the following feedback from the Hitzig family. Thank you so much for taking such incredible care of them. They had nothing but amazing things to say about you!

    Jeremy told us that the whole family loved you, and were really blown away by how much you cared. An example he cited for this was, at one point, out of the corner of his eye, Jeremy caught you holding one of the twin’s hands to make sure they crossed the street and made it safely. He said not only were you professional, you were also “just a good man who took really great care of us.”

    They loved the Sydney restaurants, including all of the restaurants that you suggested for lunch (thank you). Regarding touring, they mentioned the zoo was a highlight for the whole family. They also loved the Sydney Opera Tour and said that was an example of when they really understood the value add (especially with children). They were really sad to leave you!”

  • “Grant, Hello, finally, from New York! Daniel and I just returned from our lengthy travels and are so happy to be back after a glorious summer in Sydney, Fiji, Portugal, and then Spain. We have been meaning to reach out to thank you many times over for your incredible service while we were in Sydney. Daniel and I both felt that our trip was immensely (and positively) impacted by your professionalism, amazing energy, knowledge of the city, and recommendations. We loved spending time exploring the city with you, and, thanks to you, we feel we experienced the best Sydney had to offer. We would absolutely recommend you to any of our friends and family who visit”.
