  • As one of "The Magnificent Seven" that made up the depleted Inland Explorer tour from Melbourne in July, I must congratulate Fun over 50 running the tour with such a small group after a large group had cancelled. We had a fabulous time and were treated as special guests by Rob and his wonderful "Golden Truck"! The new Senorita Coach with its plush leather seats was pure luxury and it was quite humorous each time the coach pulled up and only 7 passengers stepped out. Everyone thought we were a very rich group to have chartered the whole coach. I've been on many tours in Australia and overseas, but have never had such wonderful personalised service that Rob provided. No corners were cut to compensate for the additional costs the Company must have carried to cater for such a small party. Well done Fun over 50 you have seven grateful clients who will be great ambassadors for your Company. We can't wait for our next opportunity to travel in Rob's fantastic "Gold Truck"!

  • My husband and I recently returned home after completing the above tour. We both thoroughly enjoyed the ten days in which we travelled and thought that it was a very well planned, paced and priced trip. Laurie and Sarah were excellent and nothing was a bother for them. They continually checked to make sure that everyone's needs were met and that no one was left out, especially single travellers. We thought that the random seat rotation worked well, and was a very fair way to seat all the passengers and everyone seemed to like being seated in various sections of the bus. The high standard and hospitality we received in the motels in Roma, Charleville and Emerald made each stay very pleasant. The highlights on the itinerary, too many to individually mention, but the standout ones would be the Thomson River Sunset Cruise and dinner, the Cosmos Observatory, and the day in Charleville exploring the local history , which was well presented and explained to us by Jane Morgan, not to forget the unexpected visit to Old Rainworth Fort. Special thanks to Laurie, Sarah, Jane and all the staff members who we contacted to arrange this tour. We hope to travel with 'Fun over 50' again in the near future and will certainly recommend your tours to our friends and members of our local Probus group. Regards, Ruth and Peter Sergent

  • Dear all at Fun Over Fifty Thank you for your lovely welcome home letter, a nice touch, and yes we certainly did enjoy our `Ghan & Red Centre Sensation’ tour. June is a great hostess and Bernie is a fabulous driver and his knowledge of the area around Darwin and from Alice Springs to Ayres Rock is astounding and the way he can pronounce the Aboriginal names is amazing! We want to take this opportunity to say a special `thank you’ to Robyn for the way she organises our tours, everything goes like clockwork, thank you Robyn for a job well done. Our evening meal in Darwin at Seafood on Cullen is something that you have to experience to believe how wonderful it is. The variety of food is astounding. They have a chocolate fountain and I’ve never seen so many bananas consumed in one meal as I did there, and each one was very liberally covered in chocolate! We have visited Darwin with our caravan on many occasions but the one place that we hadn’t been to was Crocodylus Park, it used to be just a place where they bred crocs. Now that they have a zoo, its great! I got to see the two things that I was looking forward to seeing, and they were the cotton top Tamrin Monkeys and the green Iguana. I even got to help feed one of the large crocs and held a small one. We both enjoyed our time on `The Ghan’, and we both think that we’d enjoy doing the full trip from Darwin to Adelaide or vice-versa. We enjoyed the RFDS and we learned something that we didn’t know....it is on our 20 dollar note, there is an outline of a human torso from the waist up, it is divided into sections and each section is numbered. When the RFDS is contacted, they can ask is the number where the pain or wound it...quite clever! We enjoyed the Araluen Museum, there was so much that was of great interest to us. We enjoyed seeing the remains of the `Kookaburra’ Aeroplane. While we were in the area I walked to the cemetery to photograph the grave of Albert Namatjira. We visited many Gorges and enjoyed each one......we both thoroughly enjoyed our flight over Kings Canyon, Lost City and Garden of Eden, this was another area on our `want to see’ list! On Monday 26th May we were up early to see the sunrise at Ayers Rock, but when we looked outside it was raining. We class ourselves as very, very fortunate because one of the other coach drivers who were out at `The Rock’ too, said he’d been on that tour for many years and he said that of all the thousands of people who do the tour, only 1% get to see it raining on the rock. We were able to photograph the waterfalls cascading off the rock, went back to our Motel for breakfast then returned to Ayres Rock. By this time, the rain had stopped and we were able to get lots and lots of photos as we drove around its base – Wonderful!! We are now looking forward to our next tour with Fun Over Fifty (it will be our 6th tour). It is the Eyre Peninsula, Indian Pacific & Sydney Sojourn, starting on October 17th. Stan & Yvonne

  • Dear Toni and the team at “Fun Over Fifty” My husband and I recently returned from “South Africa in Style”, a trip that lived up to all expectations and in some case far exceeded them. We never thought we would see so many animals in their natural environment up so close; the lion feeding on its kill’ the leopard up the tree with its impala carcass; the hyenas running beside the vehicle and many more. We shall always remember the magic moments of the early morning safaris, under rugs with hot water bottles as we caught glimpses of rhinoceros, came close to zebras, giraffes and cheetahs. Then there was the pleasure of the bush breakfast, the refreshing early morning drink breaks and at night the roaring wood fires under the starts – great memories to savour always. The funniest moment (and facial expressions) would have to be on the Chobe River bank, when our driver pulled up on the edge of an elephant herd. On one side of us was an old bull elephant, broken tusk obvious, as he swing his head back and forth while he decided if he was coming through the vehicle or going to go around it and on the other side, a curious female wondering what strange thing had arrived in the herd. She was sniffing and touching the vehicle with her trunk, working her way down the side, getting closer and closer to Jan who was seated on the outside. Luckily for all of us she decided not to kiss Jan but turned away at the last moment. (We had been warned not to move or make loud noises!). Our most adrenaline pumping moment was on safari at Ngala, when we were chased by a 3.5m bull elephant. He refused to let us use his track. When we first saw him he raised his head and flapped his ears at us. The driver thought he could inch closer, but the elephant, protecting his family (cow and calf) was having none of this. He charged, ears flapping. Trunk up and bellowing, he quickly gathered speed as he charged down the road at us! Our driver drove backwards extremely quickly, for a long distance. We had to take a wide detour. The animal sightings were amazing, and we thoroughly enjoyed our days and nights in the master suited with its 2 balconies on the Zambezi Queen. (Ask Jan where she slept). The whole trip was impressive and enjoyable. Frank, our Sth African guide, was very knowledgeable and proud of his country. He even took us into a slum area and explained how and why they grew up and what was being done about them (very slowly but some progress was happening). His knowledge of languages and customs certainly speeded up our access and progress through the many passport stops and made our many visits to Johannesburg airport much easier. He was also very hands on and would carry ports, bags and help in any way he could. With Jan as our tour guide, we knew we were in safe hands and could sit back, relax and let it all flow. She quietly kept us focussed on the where and when; solved problems as they occurred; enjoyed a shopping moment when it arrived and relaxed in the evening with something red provided there was a lot of ice. Thanks Jan. With the small changes that Jan is planning, the next Sth African tour will be an amazing adrenalin adventure; this one was great; the next one will be superb! Until we travel with you again, (I don’t know where or when; perhaps to another area starting with A!). Cheers Lucy & Philip Newman

  • Congratulations to whoever planned this tour. From the start with our very friendly Coach driver Laurie and his super hostess and wife Sarah we could see this was a tour to be remembered. An added bonus was 31 very friendly people who melded into a very cohesive fun group. Each day included sights we could never see elsewhere,accommodation was excellent and food superb. Our first for Fun Over Fifty and we hope it will not be the last
