Guided Holidays -Our fully-guided touring experiences
From 4 to 15 days, an AAT Kings Guided Holiday lets you fully explore a destination and immerse yourself in its landscape, history and culture. Our friendly guides will enhance your experience with their stories, local knowledge and sense of fun. They’re genuine Aussie characters who’ll ensure your holiday is one you’ll never forget. Guided Holidays come in two standards:
First Choice holidays offer premium hotels in centrally located areas, more meals and sightseeing inclusions, plus unique ‘You’re Invited’ dining experiences.
Best Buys holidays offer great value, comfortable accommodation within easy access to city centres and more free time.

Ranging from 2 to 7 days in length, Short Breaks combine the must-see highlights of a destination with your choice of accommodation along with selected meals. You’ll travel with a different AAT Kings Driver Guide each day, so you’ll benefit from the breadth of their combined knowledge and years of experience. Plus, you’ll meet a different group of like-minded travellers each day. You can discover the Red Centre, Top End, Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Cairns, Perth, Adelaide and Kangaroo Island.

We’ve Got Australia Covered
At AAT Kings we pride ourselves on having the friendliest and most experienced Tour Directors and Guides in Australia. We’ll provide the commentary, stories and insights that will bring each destination you visit to life. We’ll provide advice, recommendations and directions and reveal ‘Hidden Gems’ you simply couldn’t experience if travelling on your own. We’ll share our love of travel and put a smile on your face.
AAT Kings’ story began in the 1920s when the Pyke family pioneered coach touring in Australia. Starting with self-drive car-hire in 7 seater vehicles in Sydney, we later 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 outback tours to form what we know today as AAT Kings.
In 2013 more people chose to travel with AAT Kings than any other guided holiday company in Australia. With more than 85 years experience, we’re consistently recognised and awarded by our industry and are committed to maintaining this high standard and creating a memorable experience for our guests.
A Stress-Free Holiday
We take care of absolutely everything, so there’s no detailed planning required on your behalf other than finding the time to go and choosing the right holiday for you.
