Drew, your local contact in Australia
My name is Drew Kluska and I am the managing director of The Tailor. I began my career in luxe/experiential tourism in 1995 when I travelled to Africa and managed Wilderness Trails Lodge at Lewa Downs Wildlife Conservancy in Kenya. I created The Tailor immediately on my return from Kenya in 1997 at 26 years old, before officially founding the company in 1998. I was determined to create and deliver a unique product - allowing discerning travellers to experience the richness of the real Australia.
I spent more than 18 months searching for authentic Australian experiences in incredible locations and introduced many partners to the tourism industry and trained them personally how to deliver an exceptional experience. Today I have over 18 years’ experience in luxury travel in Australia. Now, I live in Adelaide Australia. I grew up on large farm 600 km from Adelaide and lived in the bush up until 26. I love the wide open spaces of Australia and its incredible natural beauty, amazing people and varied landscapes !
Let's go to Australia !
Australia is better than you ever imagined ! The people here are incredibly friendly, generous and very welcoming to international visitors ! The biggest comment from past traveler is "I have made so many new friends and I couldn't believe how lovely everyone is". There is too many great places in Australia such as the Great Barrier Reef, Top End of the Northern Territory, Outback South Australia and The Kimberley. It is truly an unique country and its variety is the most amazing part !
Another great thing about Australia is that you can visit some parts of Australia anytime of the year. If I had to pick the best month when you could literally do tour Australia and visit all the parts, I would say come between August and September.
When traveling with us, you'll experience the unique aspects of Australia. Not just the icons - but the secret destinations known and treasured by the locals. Our journeys are truly 'people to people' experiences. Rather than visiting mass tourism destinations filled with tourists, conversations are with hosts, guides and local Australians who have inhabited the land for generations.
