This was a trip of a lifetime. We are so happy we were able to fit so much into our 2 weeks in Australia and New Zealand! Our travel planner was very helpful in the planning process, offering advice on which excursions we should really do and timing that made the most sense. There was also a glitch in one of our hotel stays and she was able to fix that for us very last minute.
We fell in love with Queenstown, New Zealand. It was so beautiful, no matter where we went or what the weather had in store, the landscape cannot be beat. We also really loved feeding the kangaroos at the Wildlife Habitat during our stay in Port Douglas. The torrential downpour actually helped us out in this instance, since it kept most of the travelers away, and grouped all of the kangaroos under one gazebo. We were able to get up close and hangout with 12-15 of them at one time! Another fantastic part was zorbing in Rotorua, NZ. It was a blast!!
I would probably have gone a few weeks earlier in hopes that it wouldn't be as rainy. By far, the biggest thing we would have changed is having more time in New Zealand's South Island, to explore the Milford Sound and Fiordland National Park. I think I would have tried to add another day in Melbourne too, since that day we spent driving along the coast on Great Ocean Road, and not really exploring the city at all. I really don't think we would have eliminated any of our stops or have taken out any of the excursions, they were all spectacular, it was just that we couldn't fit in a whole continent in just 2 weeks.Travel Company Comments
Thank you for taking the time to post your review, we are delighted you enjoyed your time in New Zealand & Australia and were able to fit in so many areas In your two weeks. It is always a challenge to determine the best time to visit both countries and typically March is a fantastic month to travel for New Zealand & Australia - you were at the tail end of the rainy season in Port Douglas, so traveling earlier for both countries would likely have not been an advantage. We were disappointed with the hotel in Rotorua not providing all three rooms on arrival we had reserved on your behalf and pleased we were able to resolve this to your satisfaction by moving to a different property and upgrading the accommodation to make up for the inconvenience. The number one feedback comment we receive from our clients is that they wish they had more time to spend in the destination & this certainly seems to have been the case for you also, we are pleased to hear you enjoyed every stop and all the day tours we arranged.
