What We Believe
Everyone at Welcome to Travel, is a traveller at heart and the reason why we travel is to:
Have new experiences that will broaden our horizons.
Explore new places, as it sparks creativity.
To connect with people from around the world with similar values.
You will be amazed at how one shared experience can create a lifelong friendship.
All it takes is to start…Take that first step… But we know it can be overwhelming and daunting.
This is exactly why we set up Welcome to Travel, so you can meet like minded people and discover places that you have only ever dreamed of.
This is the start of your travel story, so let us share ours with you.
The founders of Welcome to Travel Adam and Darryl, have been in your position of not knowing where to start on their journey.
After finishing their studies they left the UK in 2010 for what was supposed to be six-months of travelling around South Africa, Thailand and then finally Australia, but it ended up being a life-changing journey.
As soon as they landed in Australia they travelled along with getting employment on vineyards and avocado farm to extend their stay. In their second year they found themselves working in the travel industry from 2012, which enabled Adam and Darryl help over 15,000 people go travelling around Australia and beyond.
They believe that through their own adventures; travelling is the best form of education, where you’ll meet people from all around the world, experience things you have only ever dreamed of and be a more confident you. But they also know from their own experience that the hardest part of travelling is always at the start.
With these beliefs in mind Welcome to Travel was born in July 2017 and they created both an 8 and 4-day tour of Melbourne, which coincidentally happens to be their favourite city in the world.
After several months of getting it off the ground they ran their first ever tour in January 2018 and just ten months later they won the best tour in Victoria at the Adventure Tourism Awards, one of the highest achievements for a travel company in Australia.
The Welcome to Travel fam is still growing with every single person that books on our tours along with the legends that join the team. We want people to have the best time travelling, join our travel community and realise that Welcome to Travel is more than a tour.
