So what’s it like to travel with Thirsty Swagman?
Our tours attract a collection of some of the finest characters on earth, from all walks of life.
Our typical tour has about 50% females / males, 25% are couples, and average participant age is around late-20s to early 40s. We’ve had people from mature 18 year-olds to ever-green (and quite legendary) 70 year-olds on tour.
Participants are about 30% Australians; the remainder come mostly from the USA, Canada, New Zealand, Europe, and Asia. What they all have in common, is a love of a great night out at the best pubs and festivals on the planet!
We choose premium 3 – 5 star hotels & resorts which are located near the main pubs, bars and festivals we visit, so that it’s never too far to walk and you can enjoy a good sleep, and be ready to party the next night . Our tours do not include any scheduled (in our opinion boring) sightseeing – we leave that up to the individual to do during the day.
What other are saying
Our thirsty legends (those fine travellers who have joined us on a tour) love our trips and how we run them – we have among the best reviews of any tour operator on the planet with a 5/5 star rating from almost every traveller on TourRadar, the world’s leading online travel agent.
Our No Idiot Rules
One of the reasons why people rave about our tours is that we actively discourage idiots coming on tour. Those people who become obnoxious, aggressive and offensive when they’ve had a few drinks.
While we like to party hard just as much as the next person, if someone can’t do this in way that is respectful of their tour mates and the locals – then they should stay at home. To this end all tour participants are required to abide by our strict “No Idiot Rules”.
We’re not just another tour operator
Our tours have been featured in FHM, Ralph Magazine, M2 Magazine, and hundreds of international Lifestyle magazines. Thirsty Swagman is also one of the very few tour operators around the world featured on Wikipedia (an almost impossible feat for a private company).
