What an amazing experience it was touring St. Petersburg in Russia and throughout Scandinavia with our 2016 "Scandinavia and Beyond" group of girls.  If you have ever thought of doing the Hurtigruten Coastal Norway cruise, just do it, it's spectacular!  Full of natural beauty, ancient history, beautiful architecture and friendly people, Scandinavia has lots to offer.  Check out the 2016 Scandinavia album on our Facebook page or in the gallery here on our website for photos from this beautiful tour.


Earlier we returned from another amazing "Kimberley Adventure" with an extended stay in Broome.  Thanks to Adventure Wild's amazing hosts Corf and Adey who once again went above and beyond the call.  Looking forward to doing it all again in 2017.  Bookings are now open, don't miss out as the last 3 tours have sold out!


In March we returned once again to Vietnam and Cambodia visiting for the first time Phnom Penh.  Although visiting some of the sites of the country's capital city are very overwhelming I can thoroughly recommend doing so as the city has much to offer and the people are very friendly.  Thanks to all the ladies who joined me on this wonderful adventure.


2015 was a busy year for Girls On Tour.  Thank you to everyone who travelled with us on our wonderful adventures.  The visit to the magnificent Castello di Sammezzano in Tuscany as part of our "Italy in Spring" tour was definitely a highlight for all concerned.  This abandoned castle is only open to the public twice a year and only 500 people per day are able to visit but my persistance paid off and with the help of my Italian friend Alessandra we were able to have a private visit which was truly amazing.  There were collective 'wows' on many occasions and it is something we will all remember for a very long time.


In February 2014, I was joined by 9 other ladies, some past travellers and some new to Girls On Tour and we explored the ‘Great White Continent’ as part of our "Antarctica & Galapagos" tour.  We got up close and personal with penguins, whales, sea lions and other sea creatures before continuing on to the beautiful Galapagos Islands where we swam with the turtles, penguins and sea lions and saw many creatures that are distinctive to this area.  What a privilige to experience both of these unique places.  Our February 2017 tour has now sold out.  Our next "Antarctica, Galapagos & A Taste of South America" trip which will include the Argentina side of the spectacular Iguassu Falls, is set to be an amazing adventure. 

Our second trip to “Spain, Portugal and Morocco” in 2015 was just as amazing as our first one and we look forward to repeating this tour in 2017 departing on 11th August, 2017 for 31 days.  Bookings are now open.  Visit our 'Tours' page for full details.  Contact Judy on info@girlsontour.com.au to secure your booking.  We recently returned from Vietnam and Cambodia and for the first time visited the hillside town of Sa Pa which was wonderful.  A new destination for Girls On Tour in 2016 was Northern India.  Our tour was named "Incredible India" and that it was.  Plans are under way to return to India in 2018 adding Southern India to our itinerary as well so watch our website and Facebook for details of these two wonderful adventures.


We continue to add new destinations to our touring calendar for you our clients and would love to hear from you with your ‘Travel Wish List’.  My ‘girls’ and I, have now travelled to over 40 countries together, building great memories and in many cases lasting friendships.  Check out the amazing photos from Antarctica and Galapagos and other trips on our Facebook Page at https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.681603738558697.1073741831.348702481848826&type=3

Our much anticipated first “Scandinavia and Beyond” tour departed in July 2015 and the ladies had a ball and our 2016 tour was just as successful with the addition of 3 nights in St Petersburg, Russia.  A highlight was definitely our 7 day Hurtigruten Cruise along the coast of Norway.  


Maximum group size for all tours is 16 persons including tour escort.  To avoid disappointment book now for your trip of a lifetime!!
