Our travel agent worked well with us to craft a trip that worked for us! It was wonderful to arrive at an airport and have a ride waiting for us! A few items on concern: Our trip to the Great Barrier Reef had hundred of folks on board; we would have like to know that and been given the opportunity to pay up for a smaller ship. The rain forest trip also allowed way too much time from the end of the rail excursion to our trip down on Sky Rail. If you are not a shopper, there was not much to do. We even took an earlier ride down and still would have preferred to leave even earlier! Lastly, we LOVED the Sounds of Silence dinner! A truly remarkable experience! However, the sunrise excursion was ho-hum. The rock does change colors at sunset and sunrise, but not enough to do both! The sunset excursion, with the hike into the canyon and the wine and appetizers sunset party, was the better of the two!!! Getting up so early after the Sounds of Silence dinner for the sunrise was disappointing!
The Sounds of Silence Dinner at Ayers Rock is incredible! We also loved the tour of the Sydney Opera House. Our hotel in Palm Cove was outstanding.
As I mentioned earlier, we would go on a smaller boat to the Great Barrier Reef, skipped the sunrise tour in the Outback, and asked for alternative ways to see the rain forest.
TRAVEL COMPANY COMMENTS:
Great to read you enjoyed working with your agent – he enjoyed working with you too. Also glad to hear you enjoyed the Sounds of Silence, Opera House and Palm Cove. We would have been happy to have upgraded you to a smaller ship for your Reef trip, but the smaller ships are a lot more expensive. The itinerary was already exceeding your budget and your agent was trying to stay close to what you wanted to spend. On the rainforest trip, your agent had suggested going to the Australian Butterfly Sanctuary and Birdworld – but yes, there is certainly a lot of opportunities for shopping in Kuranda. Sorry to read you found the sunrise tour at Uluru ’ho-hum’…. I guess it is hard to top the incredible Sounds of Silence! But thanks for booking your vacation with us!
