Creating once in a life time holidays and exceeding our customer’s expectations is what drives all of us at APT, and our greatest reward is the 98% customer satisfaction rating we receive from our guests. However equally we are humbled by accolades that this passion and commitment generates.

Most significant is being voted ‘Best Tour Operator Domestic’ by our industry peers at the 2014 National Travel Industry Awards (NTIA). This is the third consecutive year that APT has been awarded this coveted title. At the same event this year APT was also humbled to win ‘Best Tour Operator International’ and ‘Best Cruise Operator (International Based Operation)', demonstrating that while our customers travel with us to many destinations around the globe, and across a multitude of travel styles, our passion and dedication to exceed customer expectations is unwavering.

As the only major tour operator to have Advanced Eco certification, and being one of few inducted into the WA Tourism Hall of Fame. We are proud to be number one with discerning travellers.
