This week I received your refund cheque of $90 sent because we were unable to undertake our scheduled trip to Lady Musgrave. Thank you very much for promptly sending a refund and responding to feedback comments in this regard.
I did not have room on the feedback form to comment fully on the tour which I thoroughly enjoyed – more than expected. At the time I did not comment on the morning tea and lunch stops we made that supported two local communities – Rolleston and Biloela in QLD. It was an excellent idea to have morning tea in the park at Rolleston and talk with the locals who that day volunteered at the Coffee caravan; and likewise what a great idea it was to have the Historic Society in Biloela put on lunch for us. There much has been about 20 of the locals there to welcome us to the Greycliffe Homestead. Both locations provided small museum artefacts which added memorably to our understanding of local history. Thanks for your thoughtfulness. Touches like these and your attention to ‘green’ consumerism are small but important features of your tours. Thanks.
Congratulations on your latest brochure. It is a work of art. Quality, quality, quality. It would be nice if more Australian companies could operate to a standard as high as yours”.
“Our flights in a smaller aircraft over Lake Eyre, the painted hills and Wilpena Pound were the trips most memorable moments. These were sights that one cannot describe, you just have to DO IT. We will be recommending your company to friends. We found your itinerary design could not be faulted. Once again congratulations on a job well done”.
Wow, what a great holiday, the Indian Pacific was wonderful, the highlight was dinner under the stars at Rawlinna, plus all of our excursions once we arrived in Perth. We then boarded the Sea Princess for a trip of a lifetime travelling from Fremantle to Brisbane. We had a great group who enjoyed each other’s company and have made many new friends. Thanks Di for making sure our trip was one to remember. Many thanks to Fun over Fifty for all the little extras.
Melbourne, Great Ocean Road, Adelaide, Hahndorf, Murray River Cruise. Great accommodation. Great Ocean Road wonderful. Platter at Hahndorf Hotel brilliant. Murray River cruise great. Colonial tramcar dinner great. All went off like clock work.
This is our first day home after a magnificent “Best of the West” Tour with our hostess Anne and Coach Driver Lewis. We’d like to thank both of them, our new found friends , our fellow Tourists and all the magnificent “sand gropers” that we met during the Tour. There were so many highlights and as all the other tours with “Fun Over 50″ a complete success this being our 4th Tour We wouldn’t travel with any other Group. Thanks to everyone, we loved every minute of it.
Pete and Mary and we’ll see you in 2017.
I have recently returned from 9 day tour with Laurie & Sarah in charge. As usual they were superb in the handling of the successful running of the tour.
They had to look after 38 passengers, who were fortunately all easy going people. We had a wonderful time visiting Port Macquarie on our first night of tour. Sails Resort was a very nice place and the meals were the same. We then went onto Bowral for 2 nights, visiting the Corbett Gardens the first day which was a sunny pleasant day and the flower gardens were just breath taking. The next day we went to Don Bradman Museum which has been enlarged and it is the most interesting place especially if you are a cricket fan, from Bowral we visited Cockington Green on the way to Canberra for 3 nights. This is a display of miniature buildings set in landscaped gardens. We spent our first day in Canberra at Floriade in brilliant sunshine. Unfortunately the flowers didn’t seem as prolific as a previous visit, due to rainy conditions, but still a lovely day out with all the activities around. After Floriade later in the afternoon, we visited the War Memorial and stayed till 5pm to be part of the closing ceremony, which was very touching. Apparently this takes place every day at the same time. The next day it was a tour of Parliament House and then a lunch cruise on Lake Burley Griffin. It was mind boggling as it is a very large lake and they are building units alongside the lake in great numbers, two and three storey modern buildings. From Canberra to had lunch at Gosford at a large sporting club there, in the afternoon we visited the Hunter Valley Gardens and had a train ride around the vast area of the most beautiful gardens of the tour, arriving in Melbourne later in the day for an overnight stay. Next day it was the Darley Thoroughbred Stud near Denman where we had a guided tour by a very informative guide who knew everything about the breeding of these lovely racing horses, we saw the dear little foals which will become famous race horses in time. Next day we had a break at Glen Innes where a lonely Scottish piper was waiting to entertain us, very moving, then onto Armidale for our last night, before lunching next day at the College of Wine & Tourism, before arriving back at Roma St. Brisbane. A Great tour.
We all took a ‘’Leap of Faith’’ hopping on a bus headed for Winton with 30 ‘’odd’’ strangers. Wow were we all in for a grand surprise!!
Would our driver and hostess be professional and know their craft? Would they offer ease and empathy and a desire to squeeze every bit of the ‘’Wow’’ factor for each and every day so we were over flowing with all this vast landscape has to offer?? You bet!! We all feel we have hit the jackpot with you Ian and Raewyn.
“Thank you’’ for all our have shared with us these past few days. You have helped ensure we all head home confident we have all just experienced something rather special.
Cheers, from “The Girls & Boys”
Maree and I just completed the 6 day visit to Fraser Island. The reason for the trip was to go whale watching. We went on Friday and the god’s were shining on us that day as there were so many whales to see and to enjoy the show they put on.
We would like to thank Fun over Fifty for yet again for the excellent tour put together of the Island. Both resorts were excellent. Big thank you to Laurie the coach driver to Fraser and Big Steve who was excellent as our driver and second host on the Island. His knowledge and talks were excellent.
Great to see Buck (Neil) again who gave us a great night full of fun for everybody.
A very special thanks to our ever caring and great Hostess Marnie who gave 100% effort in looking after us. Nothing was a worry for her to help us with all the arrangements. Well done Marnie and look forward to seeing you in November for the Tassie trip.
I would recommend this tour to anybody keen on going to Fraser and to do it with Fun over Fifty.
We would like to thank the other 34 travellers on this trip who were all great and got along well with one another. All appeared to enjoy the trip thanks to Fun over Fifty staff and others involved. THANKS
It’s been a year almost now since we embarked on these ancient parts of our world.What a great trip we had!!
Having never been on an organized tour previously, we were pleasantly surprised from the very beginnings prior to our departure the Professionalism displayed by “Over 50’s” and then to the Tour itself.
Our time with our sizable group of 25 was fabulous. We all engaged together most of the time under the guidance of our Tour Guide Anne, of whom did a great job co-ordinating with our Turkish & Greek guides upon our arrival.
We were exposed to endless history lessons as we maintained our itinerary with gusto with wonderful meals and hotels to match.
We still keep in touch with some of the great people on our tour and sincerely Thank You all @ Over 50’s for a trip of a lifetime as is the consensus amongst all of whom on our we’ve spoken to since.
We would like to pass on our thanks for a great trip (22 July 2016 to 31 July 2016).
In particular we would like to commend the tour bus driver, Bernie, and the hostess, Raewyn, for their professionalism, knowledge and good humour.
Just a short note to thank you for my very enjoyable; just completed Fun Over 50’s Darwin Katherine Kimberley & Broome tour; and also the Fun Money voucher of which I will consider its usage; after the smoke from this venture has cleared.
I am all but 81, as I write this. After having home nursed my wife for over 10 years, and with her passing; I have taken something like a second retirement; so have been travelling around Australia by self driving my own car, and by fly and hire car; trying to get in as much as I can; before I run out of time and steam.
That D-K-K-B Fun Over 50’s sojourn was my first guided package tour. It was with some trepidation and self doubts that I; as a solitary person who treasure my independence, looked forward to being locked on a bus tour for ten days, with a bunch of total strangers.
But my misgivings proved quite unfounded. After some early uncertainty I found our travelling troupe were so nice, amiable; sociable and respectful. By the end of the tour we were almost a family. There was no hanky-panky, no swearing, no mobile phone pests, no boozers, no smoking and everyone was so punctual in keeping to the schedule.
A point on which some of us commented; although there were ex smokers amongst us, there were no actual smokers; this quite amazing in a tour troupe of 38 people. Of course the answer to the question why? – is that in the demographic of people over sixty years age; (which would have encompassed most of our group); most smokers would be dead or dying. A lesson to be learned.
Also I cannot praise enough Russel our driver – guide and Fay our hostess. They were marvellous – fantastic; they deserve a medal.
This 15 day tour was filled with adventure, excitement and some very picturesque scenery that the Queensland Coast has to offer. Our first 2 nights were spent on Fraser Island, where we experienced a interesting 4WD tour followed by a Bush Tucker Talk and taste prior to BBQ buffet dinner.
This tour took in very picturesque scenery that the Queensland Coast has to offer. Our first two nights were spent on Fraser Island, where we were taken on a
4WD tour along the beautiful beach, then prior to a BBQ buffet dinner we had a bush tucker talk & taste. We then travelled onto 1770 for 3 nights. That was a lovely modern town where we were taken on a Pink Amphibious LARC along the coastline it was an amazing experience as this vehicle could travel over any surface i.e. rocks, hills, sand, water. Onto Mackay for one night, then a cruise over to Daydream Island Resort for 2 nights. The island is occupied by lots of kangaroos with joeys, all very tame and entertaining. There was a visit to the Outer Reef during the day. Our next stop was Mission Beach for two nights. This as far as I am concerned the highlight of the tour. It is just the most beautiful place. We visited a Fruit Forest Farm for tour & tasting. There were fruits that were very uncommon, but tasted quite nice. On the way to Cairns we called into Charley’s Chocolate Factory where there was a demonstration of the making and sampling of their chocolates made on the premises. Whilst in Cairns we visited Mossman Gorge, did a Dreamtime Cultural Walk with a guide experiencing his culture then did a Daintree River Cruise. The next day visited Kuranda via the Scenic Railway, then boarded a World War 11 Army Duck for a rainforest tour. returned back to Cairns via Skyrail Rainforest Cableway. We had an unexpected camera crew of 3 on board for 2 days at Mission Beach filming parts of our tour for “Queensland Weekender”. We were told it will go to air in September 2016.
That finished a most enjoyable tour. Laurie our Coach Captain and Anne our Hostess, were both very attentive to the needs and safety of all on board.
Great trip. Very well organised all the way through. Good crowd – everyone mixed and got on well – no-one held the coach up or made complaining a daily occurrence. Russell was an excellent Coach Captain complemented by Hostess June. Already checking over the next brochure. Thanks a lot for a great time.
Jenny and I have not been on an extended Coach tour of this length (2800kms) and were unsure of what to expect. Nor have we travelled with Fun Over 50 before. Upon reflection this tour (Darwin Kimberley Broome) proved to be very well organised with quality “Top End” attractions. A professional tour guide (Andi) who always had the passenger interest and comfort foremost in her mind made this a stress free and enjoyable experience. A coach captain/driver (Bernie) who displayed a breadth of knowledge including history, flora and fauna and geology – in each of the areas we travelled through as well as being a very competent driver and most likeable character.
Accommodation was generally very good with one notable exception – Knotts Crossing.
Meals were plentiful and generally of a high standard. One could not complain about being underfed.
For us the variety of scenery, extraordinary landscapes and people gave us a better understanding of the top end of Australia and the hardships that early pioneers endured in order to open up this area for settlement.
For us the highlight was the exceptional 2 hour flight over the Bungle Bungle Ranges with AviAir. This was the best small aircraft flight we have ever had. The extraordinary colours of the Gorges we visited was also another highlight.
We would certainly recommend this tour and “Fun Over 50″ to anyone who has not been to this region of Australia.
We will certainly be considering other Fun Over 50 tours for our future travel plans.
What an amazing company this is. When things go awry, which is not unusual on a tour, there is no trouble that the company will not go to to ensure that everyone has a fantastic time. An alternative to getting to Lady Musgrave Island was organised, with an experience in Bundaberg for those who did not want to get up so early. When the train to Brisbane from Maryborough West was announced as being two hours late it was not a problem for the coach to be called and alternate lunch provided so that everyone arrived in Brisbane for transport connections. The coach driver, Russell was always very obliging and the hostess, Marnie was very caring and did everything possible to make everyone comfortable.
This is just a short review. We got back last night.
Just want to give Marnie and Russell a big thank you for the beaut trip. They certainly went above and beyond our expectations. Also, Russell, you are an excellent driver. We felt very safe. Hope to travel again with Fun Over Fifty.
I am not sure who in your organisation actually put the above tour together and therefore to whom I should address this email. Probably it was a team effort. Anyhow, to who ever was involved, as you would be aware we have just returned and I felt I should let you know just how enjoyable it was.
Previously my wife and I have always travelled independently and this was our first time in a tour group. However, we chose the tour because we were not too sure how we would go in Africa on our own. None the less, we were a little apprehensive at the start as to how it would all turn out. Well, we need not have worried. The itinerary, the accommodation and activities were all first class and our travelling companions were all very friendly and great fun. I am not sure what other groups are like but this one got along very well no doubt due in large part to our host, Neil. I know he was probably like the proverbial duck, working furiously under the surface but to us he was a picture of serenity, with the result that it all went as smoothly as you could wish. He was never like a sergeant major, yet had everything under control. He interacted so well with us all and ensured that we all had a really enjoyable time. In the end we were entirely satisfied that we chose the right way to see Southern Africa.
So thanks Fun Over Fifty you have two very satisfied customers.
The whole 8 days spent were full of interesting places. Despite the weather on the first day of our tour of Port Arthur, we braved rain and cold winds to explore the settlement with a guide. After that the weather picked up and we had foggy mornings which changed into lovely sunny days. The whole of the island is full of beautiful trees and greenery. The highlight of the tour was a visit to East Coast Nature World where we also had a guided tour. It was so nice to interact with some of the animals. Also the visit to the Platypus House which also brought us close up to these lovely animals, plus the echidnas, they were interesting too. The best accommodation was at Comfort Inn Gold Rush Queenstown, where we were greeted by the new Manager who made us feel very welcome and his wife who did all the cooking presented us with the most delicious meals, which everyone enjoyed. Definitely a plus on this tour. Our driver, was Geoff from McDermotts a company in Tasmania. He was so interesting with all of his commentaries also his friendly relaxed manner. Our hostess Anne, was very professional and organised. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Thank you Fun over Fifty.
Dear all at fun over fifty
Thank you for the “Welcome home” letter and the “Fun Money” voucher. We both thoroughly enjoyed the “Edinburgh Military Tattoo”, and if it were to come back to Australia, we’d be happy to see it again. Where we were seated was fantastic, we couldn’t have asked for a better position, and Kay, our tattoo hostess, was absolutely wonderful. The variety of food was great and it was beautifully presented and there was plenty of it, we’ve been telling All and Sundry about how wonderful it all was.
We enjoyed “Jock Strapp” too, he was really entertaining and very good at what he did.
Our coach drive Rob is an excellent driver, I’D give him a triple A rating. Because the way he negotiated the traffic in Melbourne, Newcastle and Sydney was amazing. To us, the traffic was what nightmares are made of. Good on you Rob. It was great to meet both you and Toni, now you both are no longer just a photo in the tour catalogue.
It was wonderful having June as our Tour hostess again, June was our hostess on the “Ghan and Red Centre Sensation Tour” so it was a lovely surprise to have her with us again, she really is a joy to be with.
This was our eighth tour with Fun Over Fifty and it’s only natural that on this tour, we visited some of the places that we’d been to on our other tours. Many years ago, on one of our private trips to Melbourne, we visited the Eureka Sky Deck, but this time, we actually went out to “The Edge”, it was really great and to have a photo of us out there is fantastic!
Your 5 star approach to touring left us and I’m sure all the others on the tour spellbound.
Had we set out by ourselves to drive to Melbourne to attend the Tattoo I’m absolutely certain we would not have had 10% of the satisfaction when compared to the 100% as provided by Fun Over Fifty.
Congratulations and many thanks Toni and Rob it was indeed a pleasure and much fun to have you taking us on this amazing adventure one we will talk about for a long time and is certainly one of our travel highlights.
“5 STAR PLUS FOR THE EXPERIENCE”
5 STAR – For the magnificent luxury Coach
5. STAR – For Rob’s commentary and smooth driving
5 STAR – For all accommodation
5 STAR – For meals
5 STAR – For entertainment
5 STAR – Touring
5 STAR – For the way you looked after everyone
It’s the “PLUS” that made us all so happy.
Finally 5 Star Plus to Fun Over 50 and the organisation behind the motto.
We look forward to our next adventure with you.
Hi Toni & Rob, Thanks so much for making our first trip with fun Over 50 such an enjoyable one. We will certainly tell all our friends how great your tours are.
Just a very big thank you to everyone involved in the Royal Edinburgh Military Tour trip.
We had a great time, as we have with our previous holidays with Fun Over 50.
WOW! This was our third trip with FOF and you didn’t disappoint. Our Golden Coach trip to Melbourne was very enjoyable, once again great accommodation & food. To Toni and Rob thank you.
The Tattoo experience blew us away, the corporate box and show were excellent.
We loved exploring Melb. and playing tourist in our old home town.
We were wined, dined and looked after top class all the way, as usual!
Thank you again, we look forward to Norfolk Island in September, trying to drum up folks from Golden Crest to join us.
Congratulations to Cassie and the rest of the team, the logistics for getting ten groups to the Tattoo must have been a mammoth task.
WOW!! Fun Over Fifty have done it again!! We can only imagine the amount of organisation that went into the planning for the Melbourne Tattoo. Full credit to you and your wonderful team. We also heard about the many hours spent packaging the T-shirts. We would also like to commend Laurie and Sarah, our coach captain and hostess, on keeping everything and everyone on track during the ‘Alistair’ tour. At times it was very chaotic but they were always cheerful and made the tour a memorable one.
Finally, thank you to Fun Over Fifty for another great tour and we are really, really looking forward to May when we fulfil a dream to visit South Africa.
I followed on with this tour after the Elvis Festival in Parkes. Once again Brian was the Driver, but also the Host. We only had 11 passengers, but it was a most enjoyable tour. The Opera held at Beechworth’s Golf Course on the Saturday night was superb. We had good weather, and the surroundings were just magic with lighting outlining the trees around the main stage. We stayed for 2 nights at George Kerferd/Linaker Hotel Beechworth. Our accommodation was in the nurses quarters of the original Beechworth Lunatic Asylum. The rooms were comfortable and clean. We had a ghost tour of the deserted building of the former asylum and the gentleman who conducted the tour was very professional. A bit scary but an experience to see the conditions of the place. I really enjoyed the 2 night stay at Crowne Plaza Newcastle, it was situated on the boardwalk where you could see all movements on the water. A very pretty place and very good accommodation.
I thoroughly enjoyed the tour along with 37 other passengers. The Elvis Festival was very bright and interesting, so much so that we all got caught up in the atmosphere of it all. Brian put some C.D.s on of Elvis’s songs also a Movie in the coach. We were all singing along with them all the way home from the festival.
Both Brian and June handled the tour with expertise, they both even dressed up for the occasion and after the parade we all came back to a designated spot to reboard the coach. We didn’t recognise these two characters dressed up in Elvis gear, then realised it was our Driver and Hostess. The whole tour was designed very well and Brian and June set each day out with great precision
Cynthia and I have recently returned from the above trip, which was excellent. We enjoyed the traversed country we had not visited before, especially south of Sydney.
One of the features that made the trip such a success was the two staff members who accompanied the passengers. Brian was the leader and an excellent driver. He made us all very comfortable, had a good rapport, was very knowledgeable about the places we visited, most considerate and helpful to an aging group. His ‘’jokes of the day’’ were appropriate and his portrayal of Santa was very good.
Marnie was a very good adjunct to Brian and did a good job especially with some of the frailer members of the group. Her liaison with the hotels and restaurants was timely and there appeared to be no major problems – at least we did not hear of any.
I request that you relay to these two staff members our appreciation of their contribution to making our holiday a memorable occasion.
We hope we may be able to have further trips with F.O.F and good luck to your continuing endeavours.
What a way to spend Christmas Day, it was just a memorable day. The buffet presented at the Fairmont Resort at Leura, was superb, then to “top” this off, some of us got up on the dance floor, including Laurie and Sarah and really had a great time. The other highlight was Christmas Eve, we spent 4 or 5 hours at the Tobruk Sheep Station which proved to be the most informative, spectacular and amusing day which included a BBQ. The choice of places to have lunches during the tour were very good such as the Central Coast Leagues Club, Gosford, Ferry Park Café Maclean,the café at the Big Golden Guitar Gunnedah and the Coachman’s Inn Warwick. Both breakfast and dinner at the Henry Parkes Motel were of top quality. The only downside is, unfortunately some of the accommodation places have showers over the baths, which are very awkward to get in and out of, otherwise the rooms were comfortable and very clean.
Thank you Fun over 50 for organising this Christmas tour, including having Santa call on Christmas morning with a gift for everyone. What a surprise.
I have just returned from the Cherry Festival this afternoon and couldn’t wait to express my congratulations to Laurie our Coach Captain, and Sarah out Hostess. They both excelled in looking after the group of 35, we had a really wonderful time with a lot of laughs and were given such comprehensive commentaries by Laurie about the places we stayed and passed through on our tour over the 7 days.
There were many highlights, but the one that will stay with me is the Cherry Festival Parade, I was sitting under a large tree on the side of the main street waiting for the parade, and a couple came along, the young girl was in a wheelchair and her husband pushing her along. They asked if they could sit next to me. We chatted for over an hour, I was just taken in by the friendliness and hospitality of the local people. Other highlights were the lovely lunch served up by volunteers at the Police Citizen’s Club at Gunnedah, another lovely lunch was at the Coonabarabran Bowls Club, and of course our visit to the Western Plains Zoo at Dubbo, where we had a guided tour given by a volunteer who came aboard the coach and showed us around the zoo. We also enjoyed seeing through the property at Abercrombie House at Bathurst, it was just an amazing large mansion with a vast area of gardens and lawns around it. We also went up to the lookout at Mt Panorama, which was an “eye opener” to travel along the track where the car race is held.
We haven’t stopped telling our friends and family about the “GREAT” time we had on this trip. This was our first trip with Fun Over 50’s and it will not be our last. We are already pouring over the latest catalogue. Our hostess Dianne and driver Brian were very professional and really looked after our every need.
We have done a few trips with other companies and the group on this trip was the best we have travelled with so far. Everyone, from day one, was very friendly and didn’t mind a chat and laugh over a cool drink or two of an evening after a “hard day” on the road and we hope to bump into all of them again, on future Fun Over 50’S trips.
The standard of accommodation and meals far surpassed our expectations and second to none for the “all inclusive” price for the trip.
The four days on the Murray Princess a joy to behold. The crew bent over backwards to accommodate your every need.
The William Ricketts Sanctuary, “Puffing Billy” steam train, Colonial Tramcar Dinner, Hahndorf and all the other excursions were very well organised and interesting.
The highlight for us was the warmth, humour and companionship that was extended to us from the 25 wonderful people we travelled with.
The total trip ticked a lot of our boxes.
Fun Over 50, you are to be congratulated for the excellent standard you have set and achieved with your tours.
I have a tour booked with Fun over Fifty for each month in 2016. I have been on the Melbourne to Adelaide tour with Laurie and Marnie and thoroughly enjoyed the tour. They were both superb. I have the Cherry Festival booked departing 2nd Dec.2015 and Mistletoe in the Mountains departing 21st December 2015. Both of these tours are with Laurie and Sarah.
I have read your reviews and everyone is talking about the driver, Brian.
I haven’t been fortunate enough to have him on my tours yet, but am looking forward to doing a tour which is driving for. He sounds very accomplished and has a great personality. Here’s hoping.
Dear Toni, Jan and Staff,
I would like to thank you for an awesome trip we had in October to Melbourne, the Great Ocean Road, Adelaide then onto the Murray Princess. We had a great time. Laurie is a great driver and host. He has a way of putting you at ease and Marnie you couldn’t ask for a better hostess. She went out of her way in every way to help and I would like to thank her for looking after my diet needs. But the only thing I have to say is there is only a limited of times you can eat fruit salad for dessert and I must thank you for organising pavlova at Warrnambool. It was much appreciated. All my meals were great being gluten free and lactose free.
We love travelling with your company because we can leave our holiday and meals in your hands and know we will have an exciting holiday.
We will be ringing soon to book our next holiday with you which will be the Grand Queensland Coast Island Affair on May 15th and also Corrine from Melbourne is going to book for that trip too. We have now been on many trips with you and I have been telling people how great your trips are.
Mary and I returned from the cruise yesterday. We had the greatest of times on a well organised and faultless tour. We’d like to thank Dianne and Brian for one of the best tours ever. We were all well looked after, the other tour members were one of the best group we have ever traveled with.We were all one happy’family’ from day 1. There was never a dull moment during the trip with plenty of great moments. The crew on the Murray Princess were fantastic and they were also part of the ‘family’. This was our third trip with Fun Over 50 and we have enjoyed everyone, it definitely won’t be our last. I doubt that there is a group anywhere better than Fun Over 50. Within the next week or so we’ll be booking our next trip with this wonderful organisation.To everyone at Fun Over 50, pat yourselves on the back because you deserve it.
Our congratulations, Toni, to you and your team on achieving gold and silver at the recent Queensland Tourism Awards. Fun Over Fifty is a well deserved recipient and we look forward, once again, to our next ‘adventures’ with you.
Hi Toni and all the team
Many congratulations on such a wonderful result last night: silver and a gold well done.
The gold for sustainable tourism was most impressive!
Good luck for the Nationals.
Firstly congratulations on your latest awards they are well deserved. We have just returned from The Melbourne Cup Cruise and Thank you it was sensational up to your usual standard. The Cruise was a whole new world for us and we enjoyed the Cup just so much.
Had a fantastic time on Grand tour of Tasmania. Our Hostess Ann was wonderful looking out for and assisting us. Kerry our Coach driver was so knowledgeable of the State. Being vegetarian, all my meals were well catered and delicious. Thank you all so much
Fantastic trips where nothing is too much trouble to make the tour a wonderful unforgettable experience.
We really enjoyed our trip in May to the High Country, with Russell as our Driver and Jill our Hostess. Actually we have never had a bad trip with this Company. Our first trip with Fun Over Fifty was to Tasmania with Jan opened up to travelling with the company and have enjoyed the adventures since. Love love love.
