SMALL GROUP TOURING

We pride ourselves on our intimate group travel – with us, you travel as a name, not a number.

Enjoy the space and freedom on board our luxury touring coach, as you share your journey with a small number of like-minded fellow travellers.

We guarantee that our larger coaches will never be filled. We will always leave some spare seats so that there is the option each day for some to spread out a bit. We do sometimes utilise smaller, high-quality vehicles which many people love and actually request – these maybe at capacity but with only 10-16 people, it’s great fun for all. We love this type of travelling, as we get to know you, and you get to know us…and your fellow traveller.

 

TRAVEL IN STYLE

Peli King

Luxury Coach, perfect for those longer tours away

HOME START TOURING*

Start your holiday stress-free and relaxed, as we pick you up right from your front door. 

You’ll be greeted by one of our Tour Local representative, bags loaded, and welcomed on board – a great way to start your day. 

This service is available on all tours of 3 nights or more, and for those living within selected areas.
Selected Areas = Melbourne Metro, Mornington Peninsula, South East Suburbs, Gippsland (as far east as Sale).
Note: if you are outside this area, or from interstate, talk to us about how we can arrange a central pickup/flights for you (extra expense may apply).

Why Tour with Tour Local?

  • We have been in business since 2018 touring around Australia – meaning you know you’ll be in good hands with us
  • We are Family Run, and Family Owned- meaning not only are we owned and operated within Australia, but as a family based company, you know that when you tour with us, you’ll tour like family.
  • We have a passion for what we do – when we are out on the road, you can bet your bottom dollar that we are enjoying ourselves…and generally if we’re enjoying ourselves, you’re enjoying yourself too! We are just like you…we love to travel!
  • Hear from our passengers – Don’t listen to us, read what our passengers have been saying – View here.

Who are our tours for?

  • Over 50s Age Group – we hate to discriminate, however, as that our tours are designed and geared towards those on the other side of 50, we feel that its only fair that the minimum age be that of 50
  • Single Travellers; Loving Couples; Just Friends – this is our way of saying that everyone is welcome! Whether you are a single traveller (or single traveller looking for someone to share with) a loving couple (or not so loving) looking for a memorable holiday away, or a small (or big) group of friends looking to enjoy yourselves and have some fun together – our tours are for you!
  • Those looking to enjoy themselves – let’s face it, who doesn’t want to enjoy themselves on holiday. We just want to ensure that if you are booking on our tour, you are up for at least a little bit of fun and laughter whilst on the road
  • NOT marathon runners – don’t get us wrong, there will definitely be times for the more “active” among us to test out their legs or, go for a nice morning stroll – but we ensure that the inclusions on our tours are suited to all abilities. And if there IS something included that might be a bit more challenging, we’ll definitely talk it through with you first. 

Frequently Asked Questions

You can book online in your own time by locating your desired tour, and following the booking prompts.
However, if you do not feel confident, or do not want to book this way, please simply call our office on – 03 5941 8800 – and we will happily take your booking for our tours for seniors and other extended Australia tours.

Yes!
If you are travelling with us on a tour of 3 nights or more, and live within the Melbourne Metro, Mornington Peninsula, or Gippsland regions, then your holiday starts from your front door – as we come and pick you up!

We will be in touch about 2 weeks prior to our tour departure to let you know of your pickup time.

See above for who is eligible…

Not to worry – this happens quite a bit, and there are still plenty of ways to get you on board. Sometimes, we ask that you pay a little extra, and we are therefore able to come pick you up from home (like a Taxi service). Sometimes, we will ask you to meet us at a central location (hotel, airport, train station). Or, you are of course welcome to drive to our depot and leave your car in our secure lot and depart with us from there.
We will discuss these options with you, to find one that best suits you!

We do our best to cater for all dietary requirements – please let us know of these at the time of booking.

The great thing about our tours is that there is something for everyone! Our days are engaging and interactive, without being overbearing and tiresome.
We understand that you want to get your moneys worth, but at the same time, also want some time for yourself and to be able to put your feet up and simply relax.

All we ask is that you are able to safely board and disembark our coach (4 steps) without need of assistance. If you can do that, you are fit enough for our tours!

This is fine – and happens quite often!
When booking online (or with us over the phone) simply select “Single looking to share”, and that way we can keep an eye out for a like-minded travelling companion for you in the same situation.
We will always OK this with both parties before we finaslise this, and normally suggest that you catch up for a phone call/coffee first.

Please be aware, until a sharing partner is found, you will be booked on at the Single Travellers price – as no guarantee is made by us that we will find you a sharing partner.

More or less yes. We believe that every seat on board is a comfy one, offering you amazing views as we cruise past. In saying that though, we do not allow anyone to “reserve” a seat for the duration of the entire tour – and where needed/wanted, we will ensure that everyone gets a chance to sit in the more desired seats.

We have a luggage limit of 16kg, regardless of any airline/cruise conditions – this is for OH&S concerns, and for the safety of our crew. It is our policy that you are responsible for the carrying of your bags to and from your room/coach, so please ensure you can manage them.
We will of course load your bag on and off the coach.
You are welcome to bring a day bag on board the coach as well.

No – for our domestic Australia tours, this is not needed. However, WE HIGHLY RECOMEND IT!
We recommend that from the moment you book and pay your deposit, you take our travel insurance, as this covers you in case of early cancellation.

If WE cancel a Australia tour at the discretion of Tour Local (ie. lack of numbers):
Then the option of a tour transfer, full tour credit, or full refund will be made available to you.

If YOU cancel a tour at your own discretion (ie. medical, change of mind):
Then the following refund conditions will apply. 

91+ Days:      Your deposit is fully transferable*
61-90 Days:              Forfeiture of deposit*
0-60 Days:            Forfeiture of Full Fare

*All less any monies already paid, or committed to, on your behalf to a third party that are not refundable to us (ie. pre-paid flights, rail, cruise)

If WE cancel a tour due to reasons outside of our control (ie. covid restrictions):
Then a tour transfer or a full tour credit of monies paid will be made available to you*
We reserve the right to take each matter on a case by case basis where the need is  appropriate.

If a lockdown is implemented or Covid conditions come in to place whilst we are out on tour, our first priority will always be the safety and well-being of our travellers. As such, we will assess and address each situation individually as it arises. 

Due to the ongoing nature of post-covid travel, we appreciate your understanding and patience when it comes to touring in this new landscape.
Please be aware that daily itineraries may be changed without notice, and  certain
inclusions substituted where needed.

*less any monies already paid on your behalf to a third party that are not refundable to us (ie. pre-paid flights)

This does vary from place to place – however, we believe in getting a good nights sleep, and understand that your room can be a bit of a refuge for you at days end – which is why we always seek our the best and most suitable accommodation for every location we travel to.

These will have (unless otherwise specified) individual en-suites, kitchenette facilities, basic motel amenities, and of course a nice comfortable bed for you to sleep in.

NOTE:
Twin = Two separate Beds (for two people)
Double = Large, Solo Bed (for two people)
Single = Solo Bed (normally a double/queen)
