Candice of this Australia Tour Operator is awesome. She listens to what you want and does her best to get it for you. She also makes suggestions based on what you have told her. Unfortunately, the person with whom she works in Australia was not as well informed as Candice, and I missed doing something that I was looking forward to doing. I missed going on a mail run in the outback that Candice knew about, but the person in Australia did not. I mentioned my disappointment the day I was leaving Coober Pedy, and the manager of the hotel said had I told him that when he picked me up at the train, he would have been able to schedule it for me because I was there on one of the days that the mail goes out.
The person from other company you told me about did not seem to have read what I wanted. S/He appeared to have pulled travel brochures off of a shelf and sent them to me.
I especially enjoyed my train trips, seeing Sydney Harbor, seeing a big red kangaroo in the wild, touring Coober Pedy and the opal mine, holding and having my picture taken with a koala bear, seeing a Tasmanian Devil and other animals native to Australia, snorkeling on the Great Barrier Reef, and seeing a lot of the continent. Australians are extremely friendly. I got to have extended conversations with a number of them.
I would have scheduled fewer all day tours in favor of some half-day tours, and I would have scheduled one extra full day in Sydney, one extra full day in Melbourne and one extra day in Hobart. Although I'm not a shopper, I do like museums and seeing the architecture and layout of cities.
I did, in fact, cancel one of my scheduled all day trips and changed one into a half-day trip. ( I hope I'll get some money back for those.) I also just skipped one of my trips--knowing that I would not get any money back for that one because I just needed to "sleep in."
