11 Day Incredible China - Unbelievable Price. October 2018.

Our trip to China was very well organised by Inspiring Vacations, starting from the admin assistance from Renee. A great national guide in Billy Young which made all the difference - professional, well organised and a good sense of humour. I have been 3 times to China now and I would not go without using a guide. The buses were well organised and were always waiting for us. 4 out of the 5 hotels were easily 5 star. A few of the days were quite long with lots of walking, but still fine for young and old to get through, especially as there were so many different experiences. Overall, the price was unbelievable for what our family of 6 received. We would definitely go with this company again. Damien, AU.

16 Day Egypt with Nile Cruise - Beyond our Dreams. September 2018.

This holiday was AMAZING ... way, way beyond our dreams. It was absolutely fabulous in every way. Every vehicle we used was clean and air conditioned. There were large buffet breakfasts in each hotel which were of very good quality and variety. We really did have a view of the pyramids from our room. PRICELESS!!!! We booked each optional tour and are so very glad we did. Overall we really had the most fantastic holiday, memories that will last forever.  Debra G, Melbourne.


21 Day China Odyssey - 10/10.  September 2018.

This was my 6th trip to China, it's an amazing country. I felt that the Inspiring Vacations holiday was of fantastic value. We were given a full itinerary before we left Australia. We have been on many organized tours and self-planned holidays before, and this one was 10/10. For what we paid it offered incredible value and content. Josie Bullerwell, New South Wales.


8 Day Taste of Vietnam - September 2018. 

Awesome package, great experience, for myself and 12 yr old son. Fabulous service, well informed, helpful, caring, we even were given a mobile phone for whole trip to contact them with any concerns. Unfortunately we couldn’t go on the day cruise because of a typhoon, but they set us up on two other tours and a refund in Vietnamese doung. I have raved about it to everyone, and I am looking for another trip now. Thank you so much for all your help prior to the holiday. Anonymous Survey Feedback.

16 Day Egypt with Nile Cruise - Amazing History. August 2018. 

Did we enjoy it? - yes we did. Amazing history. For us, we thought the trip got better as we went along.

11 Day Incredible China - Extremely Well Organized. August 2018.

The tour was extremely well organized. Everything ran smoothly. Guides were most informative and friendly. Meals provided were excellent. Hotel standard was exceptional. Most sightseeing of important historical sights was included. The optional tours were enjoyed by most ... but slightly too expensive. Definately got value for money on this tour and would recommend this tour to others! Anonymous Survey Feedback.


21 Day China Odyssey and Yangtze Cruise - Thoroughly Enjoyed. August 2018.

My husband & I thoroughly enjoyed our holiday and found accommodation excellent, food good and tour guides fantastic. Guides were so considerate, good fun & very keen to share their knowledge of their country’s history while at the same time making sure we understood how people live. Our only problem was the weather which was very hot from July 27 - Aug 15 but we managed. Jennifer A, Melbourne, VIC.

13 Day Timeless China & Hong Kong - Gardener Saves the Day. July 2018

My Husband lost his wallet within the first 2 days at a palace garden. Our guide Jackie Cheung (Zhang Ji) went to a lot of trouble for us which resulted in the wallet being handed in by a gardener. We never got to thank the lady gardener. Please pass this on to the local Nexus people. As a result of everyone helping in China we enjoyed the tour and highly recommend the tour and Nexus Holidays.
