2015 marks the 28th year in business for On Course Tours & Travel. Over this period the Northern Beaches based company has conducted many great value coach tours to all points around Australia and has conducted lots of escorted tours overseas. The family owned and operated company has built an excellent reputation for quality, service and imaginative itineraries. John & Kerry Dunne, the proprietors, love the variety that a career in tourism offers. Australia is a fabulous product to showcase and no two weeks are the same.
This year our extended tour programme offers over 50 destinations around the country, from simple overnight breaks, to month long grand tours. We are also spreading our wings and have lots of exciting overseas destinations including South Africa, Britain & Ireland, European River Cruising, Hawaii, New Zealand, Canada and Japan. On Course also conducts day tours in and around Sydney on a regular basis for Probus Clubs, RSL Clubs, Bowling Clubs, Church Groups and Retirement Villages. The Sydney region has so many attractions - we now have over 120 different day tours covering the region, bounded by Kiama, The Southern Highlands, Blue Mountains and The Hunter Valley.
Conducting tours for the active seniors market is an important part of On Course Tours business, but there are lots of other aspects to the Company. Apart from so many different destinations we have such a diversity of groups, with people from overseas arriving from all points of the globe. We have lots of visiting sports teams ranging from School Groups through to National sides across an incredible array of sports. In Winter the focus switches to the snow. Skiing remains a passion, so our coaches are busy taking groups to the mountains for exciting snow trips. Not only do we have many schools, but we also a lot of adult groups such as staff social clubs and sports teams down to Perisher and Thredbo each year. On Course Tours also conducts ski and snow boarding tours overseas during the summer months with Canada and Japan being very popular.
The corporate sector is important to most coach companies and On Course Tours is no exception, with transfers keeping coaches busy. Where On Course Tours differs is that apart from providing transport, we can also organise the entire conference! On Course Tours, along with conducting group tours, is also a fully licensed travel agent and can arrange all your individual prices on cruises, rail holidays, domestic and international holiday packages and include return transfers from your door to the airport, passenger terminal or station. There are several factors responsible for the on going success and expansion of On Course Tours. John identifies the quality of his personnel as being the most significant. Our experienced drivers and guides have an unrivalled knowledge and offer bright and informative commentary to all our destinations ensuring you have enough rather than too much information!
Our office team is also outstanding with excellent product knowledge and attention to detail. Although we have expanded, our approach remains personal and enthusiastic and the ideals with which we started the company remain uncompromised. At On Course Tours you will always be treated as a valued guest rather than just another passenger!
