We had such a great time and the kids learnt so much (as did the teachers!!). Everyone involved in our booking and day in Canberra were magnificent! The drivers were fantastic and went out of their way to make sure the kids were happy and that we got to all of our destinations on time.

Bronwyn - NSW

I would like to forward my appreciation for the wonderful support, patience and flexibility provided by the Macquarie staff. As excursion co-ordinator, my job was made so much easier by Meagan’s pleasant and understanding approach. Communication was excellent at all times and little problems I encountered back at school regarding changing numbers and special student requests were dealt with in a friendly, prompt and effective manner. I would like extend further thanks to our wonderful coach drivers, John and Steve, who made the experience a safe, enjoyable and educational one for our students. Their willing, calm and positive nature assisted in making the teachers’ experience relaxing and secure.

Leanne - NSW

Our excursion went really well due to the organisation by Meagan.

This being our first trip to Sydney/Canberra, it was an excellent experience for both teachers and students. Our driver, Bruce, was absolutely fantastic. His knowledge, patience and professionalism were second to none. The communication between Macquarie and the school was excellent with all queries answered and dealt with promptly. On behalf of all the staff and students I would like to thank Trish and Leanne for their assistance and organisation and for making this an experience that the kids will remember fondly.

Mathew – NSW

An excellent experience dealing with Macquarie Educational Tours after taking over a booking from a previous teacher at our school. Quick replies to all emails and able to make last minute adjustments to our booking with no fuss. Macquarie definitely makes booking Canberra excursions easier for the organising teacher. The drivers were exceptional with providing information to school staff & students as well as making logistics of moving around Canberra very easy.
