Ratpack travel is run by Sam, a mancunian operating out of a small office adjacent to a hostel in Byron Bay. I cannot fault him or his company at all,
it was excellent in all respects. Unlike some of the other larger competitors, Ratpack passes potential discounts onto the customers, and whilst
there may not be a huge difference what you do get is the best customer service. I would say I’m fairly well travelled and have used a lot of tour
operators but never have I met someone who loves so much what they do. Ratpack will take you through all the options, make an itinerary and advice
you on all kinds of minute details in a very chilled environment. However, possibly the best thing about my personal experience was that, our plans
to stay aboard a boat at the whitsundays were ruined by hurricane Debbie and so we opted to go to the great barrier reef instead. Sam effectively
communicated with us and provided a refund with no qualms and organised our great barrier reef trip. Great company, great guy. Would throughly
Sam is the best! We hadn’t really planned anything, when we arrived in Byron Bay, but luckily we met Sam. He helped us book all the major tours and gave
us good advice about almost everything. He even made us do the skydiving, which we are quite happy about today! While we we’re traveling up the east
coast, the cyclone hit. But Sam rescheduled our tickets to the Whitsundays and we ended up going on our tour anyway. Great service! We would definitely
recommend this guy and Ratpack to any traveller.
From start to finish ratpack and especially Sam have been amazing in helping out with my east coast trip. Sam actually contacted me and gave me the
opportunity to write some blog posts for the website which was a great opportunity for me. In return he got me some great deals for my east coast
trips including the whitsundays, Fraser Island as well as my epic trip to Alice springs and Ayers Rock. Ratpack are different to other companies
because they don’t recommend and sell just one tour they listen to your needs and the kind of vibe you’re after and pick out your best options
based on that. In addition I haven’t found anywhere that offers cheaper prices! Even after I had booked Sam stayed in touch and answered any questions
I had quickly.
I’ve recommended loads of friends to use Ratpack and I’m 100% sure they would say the same thing!
Thanks Ratpack team and Sam for creating some unforgettable memoriesShow Less
