Planning a Riverina agricultural tour from abroad?

Travelling from abroad? No problem. ATR is experienced in dealing with international tour groups. Please contact us with your enquiry and we can provide you with a suggested itinerary once we have confirmed all the relevant details with you.

Here are some considerations for international groups planning an agricultural tour of the Riverina. If so, we can help:

  • Does your group require a translator?
  • Does your group require assistance with travel visas?
  • Will you be sending a ‘tour scout’ to explore a tour itinerary? We can ensure a local expert is available (at cost) to make suggestions and organise introductions.
  • Does your group require completion of an industry profile or prospectus before arrival?

 

How much does a personalised tour cost?

Tour fees for our personalised tour itineraries vary. Our quote will include entry fees, disbursements to speakers and farmers, hire of safety clothing and accompaniment by a local tour organiser.

Accommodation, lunches, evening meals and coach transport are not covered in the quoted fee but we can make these arrangements for your group at an additional cost. Let us know your requirements.
