Our agent and this travel company planned an extremely well balanced trip which included self driving, guided tours and a variety of wildlife experiences. She spent a lot of time via phone and email getting a sense of what we wanted in our trip. She was always available for concerns and was competent and pleasant to deal with. We had a number of activities which included various car rentals, a ferry trip, and numerous air flights. All went perfectly and was expertly coordinated. We were a group of six (two couples and their children age 13 and age 10). The trip was smooth and met our expectations. Our agent did a great job co-ordinating the trip!!
Our trip consisted of a self drive in Tasmania with stays at Cradle Mountain and Freycinet. We then took a ferry to Melbourne, drove the Great Ocean Road, and toured Kangaroo Island. This was followed by a short stay in Uluru, and then a camping experience in the Outback. Our tour was just over two weeks in length. We enjoyed our time in Tasmania and all of our wildlife exposures on this vacation. We had an opportunity to see two species of snake in Tasmania, the devils, wallabies, kangaroos, wombats, echidnas, various reptiles, sea lions and fur seals, dolphins, etc. We had the opportunity for hiking and a lot of outdoor activities. The food and drink was also exceptional, and the local people were friendly and helpful.
We found Uluru to be a poor experience. It was very "touristy" and the activities that we did there were below our expectations and poor value for what was charged. This was not the fault of our travel company. The girl who took us on our hike around the rock, refused to let us stop for a picture on the drive home, and the sounds of silence dinner was cancelled due to poor weather, so there was a lot of downtime there. It was not worth the cost to travel there. I also found some of the accommodations to be quite dated. There was certainly a difference between a four star hotel in Canada versus the places we stayed at. The trip was fairly expensive for the quality of hotel stayed in.
