The trip was amazing in all regards and somehow managed to eclipse our expectations and imaginations. As with any endeavor of this magnitude, there were a couple of hick-ups, but in general, we will be happy to recommend Zicasso, the area, and this travel company as the travel agent!
It's hard to say...……..full of highlights and very few lowlights. The beauty of Hamilton Island, the quaint and efficient travel by golf carts and the ease of everything given it was off season were awesome. Sydney was a delight staying in the Rocks area and the personal tour, yacht tour, Opera House tour, and bridge climb were all awesome..............As was a local Sydney Pub on $9 pie night as recommended by our agent. Queenstown and Milford Sound beauty are beyond words we have to describe. The flight over to Milford Sound was sooooo cool and so much better than a 4 hour bus ride! Moorea as again beyond belief and surpassed expectations.
I don't know that we would do anything differently, but the hotel in Hamilton Island is tired. The views sell it so I don't know that a better option exists, but it really needs some work.
As for tours on Hamilton Island, we would would book the Helicopter tour that lands on Whitehaven beach vs. separate Helicopter and sailing tours.
New Zealand was perfect.
The flying back process from Moorea seems like it could have had a better plan. The flights leave late at night and the Tahiti airport is woefully lacking in support for those who took the last ferry from Moorea and then have to sit at a closed airport in 90+ degree temps and humidity while waiting for the airport to open. I almost rented a car just to sit in air conditioning for a few hours. The local restaurants don't offer much alternative.
