Hi, was just wondering if anyone has taken the Oz Bus trip? I'm seriously considering it but would be interested to hear anyone's story if you've been on the trip already;) Cheers

Hi,
i haven't done it myself but I have a friend who is doing this route (with a different company I think but i can't remember the name) and is having a great time. She is just coming to the end of the trip; I've been reading her blog and it sounds great. She hasn't had any safety issues in any of the places on the route. I think it would be a great thing to do. it might be worth having a look at the different companies that do it to see if they differ in price/route etc.

I've tried doing searches since the above post but can't seem to find any other companies doing this kinda trip. So, if anyone can help me out with that, it'd be great

hi bex76, i am doing this next year with odysseyoverland.co.uk, it takes 6 months and its nearly the same price as Ozbus, i think it will give more time to see the countries en route. there is another company that takes 8 months, eoe.org, its v.expensive. i have emailed a couple taking the eoe tour and they are loving it, they say th food leaves something to be desired buteverything else is brill.
hope that helps

Hi! I'm doing the April London to Sydney with Exploratory Overland Expeditions (www.eoe.org.uk). I have a mate who has just finished this years one (after actually doing the whole thing as advertised unlike the Oz Bus fiasco - something the Oz bus guys clearly do not do if their blogs are anything to go by)! And just for the record, it is not expensive :)- it's actually cheaper than the Oz Bus for double the length of time. My mate said it was fantastic, bloody hard work but great - I'm looking forward to it! They have running diaries so you can actually see that they go where they say, so many crap companies out there.
