Hi Guys, basically I've been looking into these different groups and i'm not sure which one is the better group to start off with. (i feel better getting in the country with something to get me on my feet)

UltimateOz looks like it has more to offer but i'm hoping some of you guys might have experience with these type of 'arrival' groups?

Many thanks!!!

heya :) i didnt do one, but in my hostel were people who did ultimate oz they highly recommended it.. although they did mention that some of the stuff that was supposed to happen like a beach walk or some city tour i cant remember.. was sacked off because the guide couldnt be bothered to go / wanted to go out in the evening.. another girl who did it got a refund because they didnt meet her off the plane and again didnt do some of the stuff that they said they would. But others have said they loved it so.. and oz intro if its a big group its meant to be great.. u can email and check how many people are online or alternatively u can ''like'' the oz intro page on facebook and then press ''meet ups'' or something and see who is also on that group before u go and have a chat with them etc for that date... i didnt do it because the date i arrived i would have had to wait for 4 days before the group started... but i hear most people do stick with each other from them so yeah. sup to u. think the week long one would be fine to get u off ur feet n meet people in exactly the same boat as you :)
