Our tour hosts are a lucky bunch of people, they get to travel the world seeing some of the most amazing sites all while hanging out with you guys – our awesome Two’s A Crowd guests!

From traversing the canals of France, to safaris in Africa, cruises through Alaska and scooter trips through Tuscany, last year we got to see it all, so we thought we’d ask our tour hosts what were their favourite moments on tour in 2016.

It was tough to drag just one moment out of them – afterall they get to meet such interesting people, those travelling on tour and those they meet along the way, and see such awe-inspiring sites everywhere they go – but one moment stood out above all…


China was definitely my favourite of 2016.  Such a land of contrasts, ranging from the serenity of beautiful and ancient temples in Beijing through to the hustle and bustle of Shanghai. Some of the cities we visited had populations that were bigger than the entire population of Australia. Walking the Great Wall, seeing the Pandas, and the Terracotta Warriors were highlights. Not to mention the food! Personal favourite was the spicy hot pot in Szechuan Province… tasty but so hot.


Morocco – Even saying the word aloud conjures a feverish imagination. Our local guide throughout was a story teller; he had a way of weaving us through labyrinth alleyways only to stop mid-sentence and in the middle of no-where walk us across barren land to have tea with nomadic Berber people. They are just as hospitable and humble to fellow travellers as they have been for centuries. It’s an enchanting place where time has been suspended.   


I would have to say South America was my most amazing trip for 2016. The culture, the people, the sites – it’s the most diverse continent I’ve ever visited, and I’ve seen a few!

One moment in particular stood out, we were riding bikes to see the Blue Footed Boobies on Isabella Island in the Galapagos when we were stopped by two tortoises ambling across the road. We stopped to take photos and waited for them to pass all the while thinking, how lucky we were!


I’ve been to Africa a couple of times before and have managed to see the Big 5 on more than one occasion, and while I’ve seen a leopard in the wild, they’ve always been pretty elusive, but not this time!

We were in the Masai Mara in Kenya when we saw what could only be a leopard kill up a tree and suspected the leopard might return. We watched and waited and soon enough a leopard made its way back to the tree. We all watched in wonder and clicked away madly, and just when we thought our viewing couldn’t get any better, a second leopard – the mother – came up alongside the first leopard, nuzzling up to its adolescent cub and putting on a show for us.

It was one of those amazing wildlife encounters you hope to have, but never really expect to!


Can I have two best experiences?

I’ll never forget that moment after checking into our accommodation at Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise, our porter took us past the ground floor restaurants on the way to our rooms but we stopped dead in our tracks; the view out the windows over Lake Louise to the mountains behind was just spectacular. The lake was partially frozen – apparently it’s only that way for about three weeks a year – and the sky was perfect blue. It was a real ‘Wow’ moment. We got to see the reflections of the mountains in part of the lake but also the interesting texture of the ice covering the rest of the lake.

My second was exploring Tuscany on scooter. It was exhilarating, it was fun, and really, I don’t think there could be a better way to see the Italian countryside! Our drivers were friendly and courteous, and made us laugh along the way. We had a few stops for photographs, a few will we or won’t me make it up this hill concerns, and a whole lot of fun!

What Our Clients Say

20 out of 10!

The trip was just great - I can't really think of any negatives. Diane will back me up when I say I usually give 10/10s - I gave her 20/10. Trish, Canada/Alaska

Excellent trip

I found the overall trip excellent. I believe Diane's professionalism, inclusive personality and ability to relate to all contributed to this. She worked to ensure the group was cohesive without individuals impinging on the personal space of others etc. a good skill to have and one she applied effectively. Kate, Canada/Alaska

Fantastic value for money

Fantastic value for money paid. Russell our guide is an asset to your company... he was fantastic! Overall the trip was magical from start to finish. Well done Two's a Crowd ... the best trip ever. Barbara, Canada/Alaska

Fantastic first solo trip

I had a fantastic trip. Absolutely loved Canada and Alaska. It's the first time I have travelled solo and was pleasantly surprised to find a bunch of people that all got on so well. Diane our host was great. She did a good job of getting us altogether for meals, excursions, shopping trips etc. I liked that she quietly got things done without being loud or "in-your-face". She was good at being one of us as well as our leader. Wendy, Canada/Alaska

Good balance of activities and spare time

Had a great time. Good mixture of organised activities and spare time. Diane was an excellent tour host. Russell the tour guide was great, very knowledgeable and personable with his insights into growing up and living in Canada. Sharon, Canada/Alaska

Well organised trip with an excellent host

The trip was well organised, with a good mix of activity and free time. The scenery was spectacular and fellow travellers were a great bunch. Diane is a excellent host - helpful, courteous and above all a pleasure to know. I found her bubbly personality a bonus and can only speak highly of her. Gary, Canada/Alaska

I had a fabulous time

I had a fabulous time. Lake Louise and the hotel were magnificent. The cruise was excellent. Diane made sure that she was available for group meals and sightseeing, and was alway in good humour and great fun. I would recommend your company to everyone and am very interested in the Scandinavia  tour at the end of 2017.

Cathy, Adelaide - Canada/Alaska May 2016

Great holiday

What a great trip! I experienced so much and participated in all that was offered. I had read and reviewed as much as time allowed me but was not prepared for what the trip gave me and that is a better understanding of the beautiful people of both countries. - Lesley on Vietnam/Cambodia

In good company

I thought the suggestions for optional things to do, in the "free" time were very good. So good, we really ended up with very little free time. So much to do! - Mary on Vietnam

Great time together

I found the trip interesting and eye opening with a great overview of both Vietnam and Cambodia. The other travellers on the trip were fabulous and we had a great time together. - Anonymous on Vietnam/Cambodia

Fantastic first experience!

Extremely well organised with fabulous guides throughout - especially in Vietnam! First holiday with your company and certainly not the last. - Glenys on Vietnam

Great group to travel with

Having a small group meant that the days were more relaxed and flexible and I really felt spoilt and looked after. Melinda on Borneo

Thoroughly enjoyed Uganda

Thoroughly enjoyed my trip especially Uganda. There was so much variety of things to do on this trip. Jaros & Julius were great. Thought in Kenya the Maasai Mara were beautiful people, so easy to get along with. Judy

Can’t stop talking about my experience

I just feel so privileged to have shared with the Maasai the most awe-inspiring majestic sights and sounds of Africa. The fantastic memories will be with me forever. Maureen

A great bunch of people & I can't believe how we all had such a fabulous rapport filled with much humour!!!

I couldn’t fault anything.

The (Uniworld River) cruise was great, I met up with some wonderful people who treated me like part of the family !
The ship & crew were fantastic & the excursions were very good, I couldn't fault anything. I'd recommend this cruise to anyone.  Peter

Informative and educational

The entire trip was one of the most enjoyable and exciting. Also so informative and educational. I was so pleased to make the trip. Wish I was over there in that magical place.  Marjorie


I’ve just returned from the wonderful Kimberley trip.  It was my first experience with Two’s a Crowd and I was delighted.  Kay

Opportunity to experience

I have had the opportunity to experience things I would never had done by myself.  Solo travellers is a fantastic concept and use of social media has been a great way to share and keep in touch with friends and family. Judi

I need not have worried

Being my first tour and a senior member, I admit I was apprehensive but I need not have worried. It was great and I was very well looked after.  Can’t wait to go to Kenya with Two’s a Crowd.  Maureen

Smooth and seamless

A memorable trip of a lifetime, a wish fulfilled.  A fascinating cultural country steeped in history which I found totally enthralling.  Two’s a Crowd service was smooth and seamless.  Pam

A wonderful experience

It was a wonderful experience visiting Cambodia and Vietnam and gave me a better understanding of these countries. I had a great time with new friends, we had a good bunch and Leonie was the perfect host. Eric

Value for money

Value for money and outstanding co-operation from your staff and tour operators. Joan

Safe and secure and totally looked after

An awesome adventure for my first time overseas alone.  Leonie was excellent and both guides were also fantastic.  At all times I felt safe and secure and totally looked after.  Melinda

Well done Two’s a Crowd.

Leonie was an excellent host, the ideal person. I never felt any pressure to  be involved in every activity so I could explore alone during free time. Having 2 or 3 nights in most places was great – you could rest up or party. Well done Two’s a Crowd. Jenny

A completely different experience

It was a nice surprise holiday, a completely different experience from all my other holidays. Thanks. Piroska
