We are a family of four, ages 52, 53, 16 and 14. We visited Sydney 4 days, Ayers Rock 2 days, and Port Douglas 4 days. It was our first visit to Australia and we were very, very happy to have done it this way. Our trip was awesome and it couldn't have been so without the personal touch of our travel specialist from this Australia travel agency.
Once our travel specialist knew our wants and needs, she was more than available for advice and speaking to directly. Which I liked because I really do like speaking with a REAL person and not an email person. I was a little hesitant to use the company as first only because I am in California and the company is in New York. But all that changed quickly.
I must share that our 14 year old is autistic and my specialist helped me changed our trip itinerary so that he was included in everything. (No boat dinners, he is very limited on his diet, no bicycle tours, he doesn't ride a bike, BESIDES THE BRIDGECLIMB WAS MUCH MUCH BETTER)
The Bridge Climb, Snorkeling the Great Barrier Reef, and Sunrise at Ayers Rock!
I probably would have reversed my itinerary, easier on the kids to get to the airport from Sydney than Port Douglas, then on home to Los Angeles. Plus we would have been in Sydney for New Years and we had a great view from hotel room of the Bridge and the Opera House. (I understand room rates are much higher)
Also, our agency spoiled us by making transfers very private with a driver just for us. While so many others were traveling in 'herds'. I say this because, we got use to small group excursions and transfers so when it came time for our Great Barrier Reef excursion we were with a very large group and we decided next time to go with a much smaller group of people and maybe even be able to start the snorkel experience from the beach. It would have been a little easier on our autistic son, although he is a very good swimmer.
