Last year we used Zicasso for a trip to Argentina and chose to use you again for our three week vacation to New Zealand and Australia. Our travel agent did a wonderful job helping us plan our trip. The itinerary details for each location were very helpful. We also appreciated her checking in on us during our trip to ensure all was going well.
We had outstanding service during our entire stay. At each city we were greeted by someone who would take us to our hotel. All the hotels we stayed at were wonderful; the food was fantastic. Everyone we were in contact with was friendly and professional.
The views in New Zealand were stunning. We traveled to both the north and south islands of New Zealand.
On the north island, we toured small islands, caves, and a beautiful thermal park. We learned about the Māori culture in Rotorua.
On the south island, we saw magnificent glaciers and visited Milford Sound. The views were magnificent.
We enjoyed all of New Zealand and should we return, we wish to spend more time in Christchurch and Queenstown.
Australia was also beautiful. There is so much to see here and we hope to return to explore more of Australia. We got to visit Sydney and Port Douglas. We enjoyed hikes in the Blue Mountains, wine tasting in Hunter Valley, and the Great Barrier Reef.
Thank you for helping us plan a most memorable and beautiful trip to these amazing countries. We were so impressed by how clean everything was and how incredibly friendly people treated us during our visit.

Our most memorable parts of our trip were the scenic views on our train trip to Greymouth, New Zealand. The train ride was a fun way to view New Zealand. The glacier hike in Franz Josef and the boat cruise in Milford Sound was also quite spectacular. In Australia, we enjoyed snorkeling and deep sea fishing on the Great Barrier Reef and the views of Sydney Harbor, visiting the rain forest and seeing kangaroo, koala, crocodile and sea turtles. It was all so much fun.
If we could redo our trip, I think we would have preferred to schedule more down time. I will make sure next time not to do back to back tours. It took away from doing our own exploring in some of the cities we stayed. I will also make sure our tours are more intimate. We enjoy the one on one private tours we experienced in Argentina but this was not that case with this trip. The tours were large (30 plus people) on a bus and several times we felt rushed because they were behind schedule. We enjoy a more relaxed trip and that was not the case on the bus tours.
In Port Douglas we chose to change our trip from the rain forest to deep sea fishing. It was very humid and hot and felt we would enjoy the sea a bit more.
Since it was a three week trip, our agent planned it perfectly in both countries where we had an opportunity to do laundry at the hotels in Franz Josef and Port Douglas. Truly, the experience was fantastic.
