Juan Manuel Yanez
Tour Leader at Travel Directors 

Travel Directors are at the forefront of the adventure travel market.

They were the first Australian travel company to conduct tours to Cuba and Ethiopia, the first to lead groups on the Himalayan Express in Tibet, and the first to take Australian travellers to the Five Stans of Central Asia.

Their new itineraries, which include Mozambique, Zanzibar & the Great Migration, and the amazing Epic Rail Odyssey – a momentous rail journey from Moscow to Singapore – underpin their commitment to ‘paths less trodden’ and we are excited to have Travel Directors Tour Leader Juan Manuel Yanez (Manny) on today’s show to talk train journeys in Peru, Cusco – Machupicchu, Andean Explorer, & the MACHO train.

Tim Fischer
Former Politician who’s passionate about The Ghan

Thirteen years ago a national dream was realised with the completion of the rail line between Alice Springs and Darwin.

To celebrate the 10th-anniversary (‘Ghanniversary)’ of this epic experience, Tim experienced this unforgettable adventure. From the comfort of The Legendary Ghan, he took in some of Australia’s most revered natural wonders – the splendour of the Northern Territory’s Katherine Gorge, the ancient wonder of South Australia’s Flinders Ranges, and more.

We chat with Tim about his experience on The Ghan and how it felt being part of its 10th anniversary.
