Judy – NT

I am always very happy with Macquarie Educational Tours. Jessie has a particularly difficult job as the airline changed its scheduling and she had to rearrange two camps at short notice. But it was all brilliant! Thanks Macquarie.

Jessica – NT

Rebecca – QLD

Jodie was extremely helpful and well organised. The week ran extremely smoothly and all organised activities were enjoyed greatly by the children.

Jan – QLD

Allan was a wonderful driver. Safe, efficient & knowledgeable. His knowledge, tips and organisation meant that our only job was to care for our students. Allan was a great problem solver & he and Tony worked wonderfully as a team. We couldn’t have asked for better. It was also great, since this was our first tour, to have such helpful and patient staff in the office who answered my many phone calls and emails. Thank you.

Teacher – WA

Jessie & Leanne could not have been more helpful. When I was close to deadlines – frequent emails were sent and they were always available by phone for advice. This was important as I had not completed a booking before and time was scarce with a full time teaching load. Allan (driver) was wonderful – we could not have asked for any more assistance.
