TRIP OF A LIFETIME!
We just returned from the most amazing trip we have ever taken! This trip was a present to me from my husband for my 70th birthday. We have always wanted to visit Australia and New Zealand, and decided to spend 2 weeks touring each country.
We chose this travel agency based on their excellent reviews, and the fact that our travel specialist responded so promptly, professionally, and took the time to reach out to us personally to discuss our interests and answer our questions. She responded promptly to our every communication. This agent actually lives in Perth, and was able to provide insight and personal knowledge of every aspect of our journey.
We didn't have any specific requirements. We wanted first-rate accommodations, a variety of activities and small group tours. Our travel specialist planned the perfect combination of locations and activities, with "rest days" between each. We traveled by plane, small tour bus, ferry, jetboat, car, train, camel, and some lovely hikes. We experienced the beautiful metropolitan cities, and the gorgeous countryside. Each hotel was first-class and perfectly located for easy access to everything.
Every aspect of the trip was perfectly planned and executed. All airport-hotel-tour transfers were included. All we had to do was show up.
NOTE: One more thing I need to mention. We LEFT OUR PASSPORTS AND MONEY at the hotel in Queenstown when we checked out to drive to the lodge in the Franz Joseph Glacier area. Upon our arrival at the lodge, they notified us that the hotel and our travel specialist had been attempting to contact us all day (our cell phone reception was non-existent that day in the mountains). The hotel promptly arranged for DELIVERY of our property to our next stop in Christchurch. Such amazing service and follow through!!!!
The most memorable part of our trip was the night we rode a camel to a "formal" dinner in the Outback in Uluru, Australia. Upon arrival at our destination, we were greeted with wine and appetizers. The dinner, complete with white tablecloths, overlooked Ayers Rock and was amazing. We met incredible fellow travelers, and ended the evening with a walk through the breathtaking "Field of Lights."
Our Cameleer was delightful. He was knowledgeable and entertaining, and had a personal relationship with each of the camels. This allowed him to select the appropriate camel for each guest.
NOTE: We were impressed with each and every tour guide on ALL our tours. Our travel specialist apparently knows her tour companies!
We would not change a thing. This was a trip we will always remember.
