Our trip planner with this tour company helped me plan an amazing trip to Australia and New Zealand for a small group of 4 people. I have wanted to go to these two locations for as long as I can remember and working with the trip planner made everything so much easier! I had a few specifics in mind and certain things we wanted to do but filling up an itinerary for 3 weeks would have been a daunting task to complete without her guidance and expertise. This was my first time working with a travel agent to plan a trip and now I can’t imagine planning another trip without one. She was very easy to work with, made great suggestions, and worked through multiple itinerary edits until we had figured out the best fit for our group. We ended up staying in Sydney, Hamilton Island, and Melbourne for the Australian leg of the trip. For the New Zealand portion, we visited Queenstown, Nelson, Taupo, and Auckland. Thank you so much to our trip planner and her team, we had an incredible trip!
Overall, this was the most amazing trip I have ever experienced, but there were a few things that stood out. Scuba diving at the Great Barrier Reef was an incredible, once in a lifetime experience that none of us will ever forget. Our trip planner suggested we stay at Hamilton Island for our GBR portion of the trip and we are so glad that she did! It was stunning and I’m not sure we would have found it without her. New Zealand had the most beautiful scenery I have ever seen, especially staying in Queenstown with an amazing view of the lake and the Remarkable mountain range. Our visit to Doubtful sound is another thing that none of us will forget, it was definitely worth the 13-hour day. Lastly, another gem that our trip planner suggested was a stay at a hotel in Nelson, NZ. It was the perfect place for all of us to relax and just enjoy the breathtaking surroundings of Abel Tasman national park.
The only thing I would do differently is stay longer! We would have loved to add a trip to the Blue Mountains while we were in Sydney, a trip to Tasmania, and explored a few more places in New Zealand.
