We just returned from a family trip to Ayres Rock. We had several tours booked with AAT Kings & wow the service was amazing. Staff were so friendly & welcoming & looked after everyone.
Even when off duty, we ran into them and they were happy to chat. The tours were also very well organised & were beyond my expectations.

From AAT Kings

AAT Kings’ story began in 1912 when the Pyke family pioneered coach touring in Australia. Starting with self-drive car-hire in 7 seater vehicles in Sydney, we expanded to guided sightseeing tours. By the 1960s, the company, then known as AAT, had become Sydney’s largest tour operator and in the 1980s we teamed up with pioneering adventurer Bill King’s Northern Safaris, which ultimately led to the creation of what we know today as AAT Kings.

The best coaches and itineraries are one thing, but running a professional tour is another. That’s where our staff excel. Our experienced crew and local guides will, literally, go the extra mile to bring your tour to life and take you where no guide book can.

At AAT Kings and parent company The Travel Corporation, we understand that travel matters; it allows us to explore the world and gain a deeper understanding of each destination, its history and culture, through enriching experiences. We also recognize that it is our responsibility to help protect the places we visit and take care of the world around us.

Tread Right’s guiding principle is to encourage sustainable tourism development through conservation, leadership and support for communities. We encourage each of our partners to use this principle to guide all of their actions, whether at our regional offices or when taking guests around the world. By providing grants to organisations that encourage sustainability in different destinations, we hope to maintain the natural attractions across the world that define each unique region. Foundation priorities are set by the Steering Committee, which includes sustainability leaders like Céline Cousteau and Costas Christ.

We're part of The Travel Corporation.

A highly successful international travel group, The Travel Corporation is a family-owned company with a worldwide reputation for quality and reliability, operating in over 60 countries.

Our tours are packed with inclusions to make sure you get even more value than doing a similar trip on your own:

We arrange discounts and deals for you before you go and along the way.

You'll know exactly what you get for your money, so you can plan your trip to match your budget.

The only surprises you'll find are our 'Hidden Gems'– a range of extra special, 'off-the-itinerary' stops and experiences along the way.

Still exploring, 100 years on.

AAT Kings' pioneering spirit is as strong today as it was when the company first began. With quality and service as our highest priority, we're a multi-award winning company and a bonded global member of the Tour Operator Associations.

Definite departures.

We offer ‘Guaranteed departures’ on our most popular tours. Departing ‘no matter what’, they are highlighted in the date section on each specific tours ‘Dates and prices’ page.
