The travel company listened to our desires for our Australian trip and then exceeded all of our expectations! The trip put us in the cities we wanted to see on our own schedule. The individual tours allowed us to see all of the important sites and the air travel was expertly scheduled to allow for flight delays. We never missed a flight and we took a total of 10 on our trip! It couldn't have been any better. It was the adventure of a lifetime. We loved our consultant!! We even stayed in touch with her via email during the trip. She was professional and fun! She was 100% on board with getting us where we wanted to be, when we needed to be there. She was the most wonderful travel advisor ever!
Overall Comments about Zicasso:
No improvements to recommend. It worked perfectly for us!
I most enjoyed the tours that got us near the native animals of Australia! The kangaroo conservatory in Melbourne allowed us to get very close to a mob of roos in the wild...some were mommies with joeys in their pouches. So sweet! The Penguin Parade on Phillip Island was amazing! Hundreds of fairy penguins coming home out of the sea to roost for the night. Adorable! At the Cairns Night Zoo we were able to actually hold a koala and get our picture taken with it. Another highlight was the Kuranda trip because of the fabulous modes of transportation. We took the train up and passed through several tunnels and witnessed beautiful waterfalls. Stunning! Then, after visiting up top, we took the Skyrail down...unbelievably beautiful floating above the rainforest treetops. Breathtaking! We were advised to keep our last travel day free of tours and that was a blessing! We needed a chance to catch our breath, buy some souvenirs for the folks at home, and repack three weeks worth of dirty laundry!
There were two tours that weren't all that interesting to us...the Great Ocean Road tour in Melbourne involved stop-offs at several beaches along the coast. It was a hot day and we took about 2 hours to drive home passing nothing of interest. The other tour was the Blue Mountain hike which took about an hour to walk the trail, but the tour allowed over two hours, so we sat for an hour waiting for the bus to come back and pick us up. However, after the hike we went to the Featherdale Animal Park and that was very fun because kangaroos roam freely inside and can be petted. Had we spent more time there instead of on the hike, it would have been a better day.
