The tour company planned a fabulous itinerary keeping our budget and want to see and do criteria. There were no unexpected events since the detailed material provided was clearly written. We loved Australia and New Zealand. Because we especially loved the natural beauty of New Zealand, we are planning on returning to see more of the islands. The only “could have been better” was the local guide in Sydney who took us on a walking tour. She was quite nice but was lacking in answers to our queries many times. We wanted to learn more of the city through our local guide. On the other hand, all other driver/guides were quite informative.
I would highly recommend using this tour company for planning a customized tour.
Most memorable was taking a helicopter ride at the Great Barrier Reef and a return trip by helicopter from Milford Sound to Queenstown. Originally, we were scheduled to take the trip back to Queenstown by plane, but the weather conditions did not permit the flight. We were refunded the plane ride and paid extra for the helicopter flight. It turned out to be a thrilling ride in the awe inspiring location.
My husband and I wanted to both paraglide in Queenstown, but only my husband took flight as the wind picked up so much the company canceled my flight. Nonetheless, my husband was thrilled to take flight. Although this was not on our itinerary, we were inspired to take the leap by watching others paragliding from various locations easily seen in town.
I would increase my budget to stay at least a month in New Zealand and to reduce the number of coach transport we had been scheduled. In most cases the coach transport was ok, it is just we did not like being picked up last after the coach was almost full, which required us to sit in the back. This gave me a claustrophobic feeling. I prefer smaller shuttles when sharing transportation.
