This Australia and New Zealand travel company did a very good job helping to plan our trip.
Our travel preference is to travel independently and then to fill in with a few tour dates, as needed. They selected our providers for tours to the Blue Mountains, Great Barrier Reef and Kuranda in Australia. The tours were excellent. They also arranged for our accommodations and pick-up/drop-off at the airports, which went smoothly.
When our flight from Los Angeles ended up getting cancelled and we were a day late arriving in Sydney, a representative of the company followed up by calling us to find out what had happened.
I would definitely recommend these travel specialists to others planning a trip.
The most memorable part of the trip was the scenery in New Zealand. During our seven days on the North Island, we rented a car and drove 1820 kms. We experienced amazing scenery like the black sand beaches of Piha,the Coromandel Peninsula, Mt. Maunganui, Lake Taupo and the Lost World Highway.
Because the timing of the trip coincided with our daughter's summer vacation from school, we ended up going to Australia and New Zealand in June -- the beginning of their winter. While the North Island wasn't too cold, we would like to return over Christmas holiday next time so we can visit the South Island.
The other thing I would do differently is to make sure that our trans-oceanic flights are not being substituted by US carriers. For example, we were booked to fly on Air New Zealand from Los Angeles to Sydney, but didn't realize the flight was operated by United Airlines. The drop-off in quality between Air New Zealand and United is significant.
