This was one of the highlight trips of my life! The travel specialist, from the travel company, was a fabulous travel planner to work with. She "met" us by phone to really understand who we are and what we wanted. She kept tweaking the itinerary until we were totally pleased with it. She provided excellent service and a lot of help in deciding our itinerary. She was very patient with our questions, had excellent suggestions, and made reservations at wonderful hotels. There were no snags at all; every detail was attended to, every car service pickup was on time and waiting, every car rental was perfect, every water taxi transport flawless. The hotels were fabulous, each with wonderful views. The travel specialist even went the extra step to help us retrieve two items we had left in a hotel; she contacted the hotel and ensured that the items were mailed to our later hotel and waiting for us when we arrived! She understood that this was a trip of a lifetime, and planned it accordingly. Every arrangement she made for us was great and went exactly according to plan.
We loved each of the places we went to in Australia and New Zealand! Everywhere was beautiful. The people were so friendly and helpful. The food was great! The really special highlights were: hiking Maria Island on Tasmania, being in bliss on Heron island, the boat trip through Milford Sound, and Abel Tasman National Park - all stunningly beautiful. Each place we went was like a painting! And it was wonderful to see koalas, kangaroos, waterfalls, gorgeous beaches, and more.
I would try to have easier connections so there wouldn't be so many flights! And I would love more time in Tasmania and Melbourne and to see the North Island in NZ! We did not have time to explore that area. But then, you can't do everything in one trip!
