The tour specialist with the tour company arranged a wonderful trip for us. As requested all our tours were with small groups and very experienced guides. We asked for an emphasis on Australian animals and in the wild we saw kangaroos, wallabies, wombats, seals, dolphins, an echidna, a goanna, dozens of koalas and flocks of colorful birds. At the Sydney Zoo we got a special "backstage" tour of the native animal area that included having a flying mouse pee on my husband (pity I did not have my camera ready for capturing the look on his face).
The tour specialist and the tour company made sure we had all the necessary documents as well as contact numbers for their Australian staff. All the hotels we stayed at were lovely, and all the tour guides were friendly and professional.
There literally was nothing about our week that could have been planned better.
I told the tour specialist that I wanted to see a platypus and her tours included multiple opportunities for visiting their habitats. I did finally see a platypus up close at the Sydney Zoo. That counts as a bucket list check off.
All our guides were wonderfully friendly and well acquainted with the areas they were driving. However Kangaroo Island was a magical place in a very special country - our guide answered every question and the tour company really did provide gourmet lunches complete with linen napkins and wine glasses out in the bush.
Actually we do plan to go to Australia again - it's huge beautiful country. We'll have the tour specialist and tour company plan our stay.
