Making Your Travel Dreams A Reality

Travelling on The Ghan

It is always Josh’s aim to make your travel dreams a reality and for Sue and Dale travelling across the Ghan was just that!

We were so impressed to hear that their travels went well that we wanted to share their experience with you.


We can honestly say that we had the best time we have had for such a long time and would recommend the journey highly to anyone wishing to see the centre of Australia. What better way to travel and see that part of the country

The excitement at the terminal in Adelaide was such an experience, as we waited, taking photos of the train, working out how many carriages and meeting other passengers as we all await the call to board for “Our Journey”.

We order our first drink at the Club Car, sit back in the comfortable seats next to the window and take in all the sights we can. We talked to a vast number of people who have travelled extensively before and listening to their adventures was wonderful.

The food was top restaurant quality and always had a choice with each course. Delicious, perfect presentation and staff that were extremely friendly and efficient. Each meal time you are likely to be sitting with someone different as they fill up the table. More chit chat, new people and another enjoyable mealtime.

Watching the sunrise in the outback is certainly spectacular and definitely a highlight during the trip.

We split up our trip with a week of tours and sightseeing around Alice Springs and boarded the train again. On this part of the journey, Alice Springs to Darwin, we were able to choose one an off the train excursion at Katherine. We chose to do the Nitmiluk 2 Gorge Tour (Katherine Gorge

Nitmiluk Gorge (Katherine Gorge) and how it is truly a great splendour of our country. Home to many freshwater crocodiles and tree life in areas almost unimaginable really was worth every second on the boat with the wonderful informative ranger guiding us up the gorge and back.

Travelling on, the countryside does change a lot between the types of plants and shrubs you see, the colour of the earth and keeping an eye out for the different types of animal life that you see. When there is something of significance approaching, the train staff inform you over the speaker system what is ahead and on which side of the train. They also provide the history behind it as you approach.

It truly was an amazing train journey – lots of laughs, great company, magnificent photos and some new friends. An experience not to be missed. We would do it all again tomorrow.

"Josh is awesome he has organised our family cruise of 8 for next year so quickly and efficiently. I would highly recommend him to book all your travel needs and wouldn't go to anyone else. Keep up the amazing work Josh."

Debbie Demooy - VIC

"We have been using Josh for our travel needs since May and totally recommend him to all our family and friends - and he has always come in cheaper than other agents - so next time you are looking at booking a flight or a holiday give Josh a call! Karen Suckling - thank you for your very kind and heartfelt words. It's very much appreciated and this is why I do what I do! It's not always about money - it's about something way more important!" x

Karen Suckling - VIC

"Thanks Josh for pulling together my much anticipated trip. Your patience, your customer service, your sense of humour and your help with the trip app was much appreciated. I have no hesitation in recommending your amazing knowledge and talent"

Jody McDonald - VIC

"Thank you Josh for seeing us at such short notice. It feels a bit surreal that our travel plans are not just a dream but we are actually on our way to the USA. Your passion and commitment to your clients is evident from our meeting, having spent four hours chatting to us is far more than what the local travel agent would spend!"

Jessica & Jason Galea - VIC

"I have never known in 30 years of dealing with corporate travel the level of expertise and enthusiasm I have with Josh Zuker over just three months. Thank you for such as personalised and totally professional service — you are truly a one-off."

John & Kate Gledhill - VIC

"All I can say is WOW!!! Josh just organised my 40th birthday holiday and I am totally taken back by how fantastic Josh Zuker Travel is. Josh is the BEST of the BEST. Thank goodness I found him but reflecting back on my many holidays that I booked myself in past years, what on earth was I thinking? Having Josh saves you an immense amount of time, money and sanity! He makes everything so easy. Ridiculously efficient, hard working, outstanding customer service and so patient! What is not to love? 5 stars all the way!!!"

Danni McGaughey - VIC

"The minute Josh walked in he made myself and my husband so comfortable. No pushing. Just great ideas. His experience and expertise in this field is just mind blowing. Since meeting Josh we are now onto our third holiday, all I do is call him to tell him what we want and within a day it's done. He is not only a travel agent but he has become a friend he just knows your needs and I couldn't think of anyone else that I would rather to business with."

Faye Hollow - VIC

"After a disastrous encounter with a major travel agency, I decided to book my own holiday to Italy, Portugal and the UK. Spent many hours researching flights, hotels etc. and not really getting anywhere fast. Then Josh Zuker Travel popped up on my radar with rave reviews so I thought why not, let’s give another travel agency a go. Best decision ever. Josh secured amazing prices, more direct flights and his service was exceptional. I just love planning a major holiday and working with Josh made it even more enjoyable. All I have to do is count down the days and enjoy learning Italian. Thanks Josh."

Sue Mason - SYD

"Thanks Josh for your patience and knowledge to help us create the perfect Thailand escape. We stayed at 2 Resorts in Phuket and both locations were spot on. We couldn't have been happier. We also spent 4 nights in Bangkok and loved our location here as well. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend your business to friends or family. Thanks so much!"

Belinda Simmons - VIC

"As many of my friends know, I love a good travel deal and spend hours trawling the internet trying to find the best price on accommodation and airfares. Well, now I have those precious hours back as Josh has found me comparable, if not better prices on every occasion. Add to that the "after hours" help I received the other night after having to postpone our Hawaii holiday at the last minute. I sent Josh a message at some ungodly hour and he was more than happy to call me and talk through my options to avoid any late change fees. And even then he was able to find accom that was "sold out" online. Seriously don't bother with your trivago, Expedias etc. Just call Josh Zuker."

Alicia Mansfield - VIC

"We have just returned from our second holiday booked through Josh Zuker Travel. Thank you so much for everything we all had an amazing time and we will be in contact again to start organising our next holiday for 2017. We all highly recommend Josh to book all your travel needs and wouldn't go through any one else. Keep up the awesome work and we will be in contact with you soon"
