    • This trip is operated in conjunction with our sister company and South Pacific Specialists - AAT Kings.
    • My name's not Tipper for nothing. I've got plenty of tips and here's just one. Tasmania has the best scallop pies in Australia, perhaps the world. The pies come in a magnificent, creamy mild curry sauce, cooked in delicate pastry. So come and visit my home, Tasmania, on your Trafalgar holiday and try one of our pies. I'll also give you plenty more tips to leave you with memories to last a lifetime. Travel Director - Carolyn Tipper
