“The trip was FANTASTIC!! everything went perfectly and the vouchers were easy to use. The hotels were close to city centers so we could walk everywhere! Highlight was the Penguin Parade and the Barrier Reef, as well as trying 63 different New Zealand and Australian beers! ONE problem was our trip to Kuranda on January 6: a person from About Australia told the Down Under Tours we were NOT signed up for lunch and the Aborigine Show; however, that IS what was on our itinerary…Other than that one problem (and none of us starved!) the trip was PERFECT!!!I have told everyone to contact About Australia if they want an AMAZING trip, so thank you ALL for everything!” – Marianne (January 2018)

ll and you arranged a van service to take me to hotel…We were in the Darling Harbor area which I came to truly enjoy…Wednesday evening you arranged my flight to Cairns and then a van to Port Douglas and the Meridian Hotel on Davidson Street. I arrived quite late and the Hotel was closed, but you had thoughtfully arranged for the key to be in their outside lock box and I was able to access my room. Early the next morning a van arrived on schedule and took me to the large marina and the AquaQuest. A day of amazing scuba diving on the Great Barrier Reef. The dive company and the boat were quite new and the international staff very supportive. I recommend them highly as I spent two days with them. In those two days I dived or snorkeled at 4 different reef locations and was in the water on at least 7 different times. Exhilarating.You also arranged a day for me with Daintree Dreaming tour, starting at Cooya Beach with aboriginal leaders. We hunted with spears on the beach and in the dense mangroves then cooked and ate what we caught…We also had a terrific female guide who then led us to mossman gorge where we ate, participated in a smoking ceremony, hiked, and then had a great swim in the river. Would recommend this activity. While I was at Port Douglas I swam daily in 4 mile beach, swam in hotel pool, hiked to the marina, shopped, ate along beach, and filled myself with fish. Meridian hotel is in a perfect location.My return with a 4 am van pick up, flight from cairns to Sydney, than to US went well…..In summary, a wonderful trip and your recommendations for the trip to Port Douglas was perfect. This was my first trip to Australia, I went solo, and I am 71. Your advice and assistance made it a memorable trip.” – John C. (November 2017)

We had a good time in Melbourne, capable of navigate the free tram zone simply to get round…We actually appreciated the seashore / harbour location at Pacific Hotel in Cairns..Linda did the glass-bottom boat and I did snorkeling, and we each loved the semi-submersible. However I’d recommend tailoring itineraries so as to add one other day+evening in Cairns, to raised permit for a full day journey to one of many farther Reef areas. We had been capable of change our days once more onsite for Opera House tour since our first full day was windy/cloudy/chilly, and subsequent day was sunny / heat for harbour tour. We loved Manly Beach and cruising the harbour for water views of the Opera House and Harbour Bridge. It was nice to have each of those excursions included in our itinerary. Lastly, the 6+ hours layover at LAX was problematic, and once more perhaps we might have labored out an alternate upfront if I regarded extra carefully. All in all of the journey was an pleasing and memorable expertise. I’d suggest About Australia sooner or later for our buddies + household if the chance arises. – David & Linda (November 2017) We had an incredible time and we didn’t have any actual issues with any of our connections, vouchers, excursions or flights. The climate was typically good and all of the tour guides had been nice. We had a good time and liked Sydney, Melbourne & Uluru.

By the time we obtained to Auckland we had been fairly properly exhausted however loved it none the much less. Overall, we’re extraordinarily glad with our determination to go to AU & NZ and with the service we acquired from About Australia. – Bill C (November 2017)

I discovered this firm accidentally. When I referred to as to get a quote Stephanie was very useful and never pushy.

We stored to their suggestions for one tour but it surely was simple to modify for tour for an additional!This was our first time and we spent 4 days in Melbourne, 3 in Cairns and 4 in Sydney….the accommodations had been positioned within the middle of the whole lot and we didn’t have to lease a automobile! They prepare the shuttles to select you up and drop you off on the airports. They prepare for the shuttles to select you up at your resort to take you to your excursions/actions and so they drop you off on the finish of the day! So good to not should lease a automobile!

You are MOST professional-knowledgeable (and if you weren’t positive of one thing, you checked!), glorious communication, and answered questions promptly. I’d positively work with About Australia once more, assuming that each one brokers are such as you. Janice (February 2013)

We went to Australia for our honeymoon and had been so blissful we determined to guide with About Australia. We visited 4 cities in 15 days. All the excursions had been improbable. It was tremendous handy to have all of the transfers included we didn’t have to fret about something. We felt we acquired nice service and the locations had been wonderful. Natalie (December 2012)

Hi Frank, We are again from the journey. What a fanstatic time! It was such an exquisite trip and I really feel like I noticed one of the best that Australia has to supply. I actually recognize all of your ideas. The 12 steps and Otway tree stroll had been wonderful. We skilled so many fantastic sights it’s laborious to recount all of them. But, one place that we occurred upon that I wish to share is the Tower Hill Reserve. We had been driving in direction of Warrnambool after we noticed a bit of brown signal on the facet of the highway for the reserve. Wow! it was about 5:30-6:00pm after we drove in and the flora was breathtaking. Then swiftly an emu popped its head up from a patch of grass. Next factor we noticed was a bunch of Kangaroo hopping by. We felt like we hit the jackpot! We had been the one folks in your entire reserve. We parked the automobile and simply sat there and noticed all of the wildlife round us. As we drove a bit of farther in we noticed an indication map and hiked into the reserve farther. We then noticed koalas within the timber. This is one place to not miss. Everyday we had a brand new “favorite” place. I feel our time on the good ocean highway and Kangaroo Island ended up being probably the most memorable. Thanks for all of your assist in planning this wonderful trip! Stacy (November 2012)

Hi Melanie, We are right here… in Sydney Australia, and standing on prime of the world or at the least on prime of the Sydney Harbour bridge, over trying the World well-known Sydney Opera House. We had been at the least 134 meters excessive on the summit of the bridge. If it seems like I’m holding onto the rail pretty tightly….you’re proper!! That’s a good distance up and simply as far coming down. But oh, what a dang fantastic time we had…..together with the bats in Cairns. Yep the fruit bats that had been dwelling within the mango tree subsequent to the resort. But all they wished was fruit …not us. Tommi and Cynthia (October 2012)

We couldn’t have requested for a greater expertise or folks I acquired your postcard and enterprise card and can you should definitely move it on to my buddies which have an curiosity in going to Australia. We had one hiccup in Fiji, however nothing of the intense nature it was taken care of the following day. By the way in which does About Australia produce other journey areas that it serves? Again thanks for placing this journey collectively for us. Rene & Robert (September 2012)

Hi,Alison did an amazing job planning our journey. It was nice. The solely factor I’d have modified is the airport transfers to the accommodations in Brisbane and Sydney. With 3 folks, a taxi is just a bit bit extra and would have been a lot simpler and faster. After an extended flight the very last thing you wish to do is wait to your switch after which be the final of 10 stops. Everything else was nice!!!!! Thanks,Kim (September 2012)

Hi Frank! Just checking in! First and foremost, we wish to thanks so sooo a lot! The journey was completely wonderful…so wonderful that we’re already planning our journey again! Everything ran so easily with the vouchers (except for after we had flight delays). Delays and all, we didn’t have an issue with something. I solely have 2 strategies…the primary is for Ayers rock. Our resort was sort of…outdated? Outback pioneer was the place to be, properly, for the youthful crowd anyway. The second is that if folks attempt to guide for less than 11 days/9 nights, do the whole lot in your energy to steer them to guide extra days as a result of Australia is simply too good to actually recognize in such a brief time frame!We had been a bit of rushed on arrival in Sydney as a result of the flight from LA was delayed, however we had been nonetheless capable of do the whole lot we had deliberate. We even met a bunch of ladies touring from the US and ended up going to dinner with them the primary evening there! The resort was completely positioned and the concierge on the resort was so extremely useful. We spent the following day in Darling Harbour after which we went to Paddy’s market, the Sydney tower eye, the police and justice museum, the Chinese friendship backyard. Our final day we spent the afternoon in Manly the place we rented bicycles (a horrible thought for us since we haven’t ridden bikes in 10 years), went to the native brewery for lunch after which did a bit of purchasing earlier than the rain began. Since it was raining after we obtained again to Sydney, we went to the Contemporary Art Museum, after which within the night we did a strolling tour of the Rocks.Our flight to Ayers Rock was additionally delayed, so we obtained to the resort simply on the time the sundown tour was supposed to start out and we missed the bus. We had been capable of work the whole lot out although and the bus got here again for us. The sundown tour was good, however the dawn tour was actually nice. Walking round Uluru and listening to all of the tales concerning the totally different elements of the rock was actually fascinating. Our absolute favourite tour there was the sundown camel tour…you need to suggest that to EVERYONE! We had such a good time and the guides had been improbable. Cairns…has a number of bats. The employees on the resort in Cairns was so nice, actually useful, and the resort was completely positioned as soon as once more. It was really easy for us to exit to eat or to get to the bars within the night. The barrier reef tour was a number of enjoyable, and it was actually totally different from the rest we had carried out. The ocean walker a part of the journey wasn’t precisely as anticipated…I anticipated extra strolling and fewer standing, however total it was nonetheless a number of enjoyable. The heritage tour on the second day was fascinating. We loved the present and the demonstration, and we liked the village. It really would have been good to spend the entire day there. On our free day we ended up reserving a tour on the resort of the waterfall circuit and Paronella park. That tour was fairly fascinating. It gave us an opportunity to see a few of the rainforest and clearly a pair waterfalls. Overall, the journey was simply wonderful. We did so many various and fascinating issues, and we realized so a lot. We actually can’t thanks sufficient for making this journey so nice, besides to say that we’ll actually be contacting you for our future journey 🙂 Valerie (September 2012)

A month in Australia and never a hitch. Everything went precisely as deliberate, on time and good. Everyone was so good. The accommodations/lodges had been manner higher than we ever anticipated. The surroundings, animals, local weather had been excellent. I’d go once more immediately! Karen (June 2012)

My journey to Australia was considered one of a sort and fantastic! I used to be already planning on visiting some buddies in Melbourne and determined to make an journey out of it. I contacted About Australia and the following day George telephoned with just a few questions in an effort to get me a greater quote. He was extraordinarily useful, personable, and fairly educated in each manner when serving to me plan my journey. Being burdened with work and college was already troublesome sufficient, all I needed to do in planning my journey was inform George the place I wished to go, and the issues I wished to see and he took care of the whole lot from reserving my flights and accommodations (all of which had been very good, clear and properly organized) to giving me a listing of additional issues I might do in my free time. In the tip, I used to be in Melbourne with my buddies for two weeks. In that point we took highway journeys to Warrnambool through the Great Ocean Road, went to the Grampian Mts., and visited a number of close by cities on day journeys. From Melbourne I started the leg of my journey that was deliberate on my own, however largely by George. I started in Uluru, generally referred to as Ayers Rock the place I spent 2 nights and a pair of days touring the bottom of the rock, having fun with the Sounds of Silence dinner, and taking brief hikes by way of the Olgas, and most significantly, the place I loved the fantastic dawn on the base of Uluru on my first morning. After Uluru I used to be off to Cairns! This was the place I used to be trying most ahead to and it didn’t let me down. The climate was heat and supplied a pleasant change from Melbourne (it was winter in Aus once I visited). Because my life lengthy dream was to snorkel within the Great Barrier Reef, I did two day excursions of snorkeling and someday of the Scenic Railway visiting the town of Kuranda. Kuranda was a phenomenal little city with a lot to do! The butterfly sanctuary was unimaginable as was the purchasing. As for the snorkeling, I’d positively suggest happening the Sailaway to the Low Isle snorkel day tour. The group was small giving everybody an opportunity to satisfy and speak, and there have been a great deal of sea turtles to snorkel with! Sydney was my final cease on my tour, and actually an surprising favourite. My resort location was fantastic as a result of it was so near the whole lot I wished to do within the metropolis. The tour of the Opera House was greater than beautiful and properly price going. I’d have liked to go to a present, however I had not allowed myself the time to take action. On my final day on Australia I went on the Royal Coast Walks tour, the complete day Marley hike as they referred to as it. Ian, the tour information, was fantastic, very educated and pleasant. The hike was not simple on a regular basis, however very pleasing. Not to say, I noticed humpback whales breeching, as June is whale migration season. Overall, I’d utterly suggest About Australia to anybody who wished to go to this stunning nation. George did a stellar job in answering even my most pointless, trivial questions and was all the time fast with a response. The day excursions had been properly well worth the time and cash to do them. I additionally actually loved that with About Australia you’re actually planning your individual journey, not simply going together with a pre-existing group. You have the chance to satisfy a great deal of folks from all types of locations if you combine and match day excursions this fashion! Would positively work with About Australia and George once more 🙂 Alicia (June 2012)

Hi Paul, I wished to ship this e-mail relating to our Widowed Persons Service Australia Adventure.First, I wish to thanks for the fabulous journey that was put collectively for us. We liked the whole lot about it. We all had a troublesome time to give you what was our favourite tour as they had been all fabulous. As a bunch of girls touring collectively, we felt secure with all of the drivers and tour guides.Frank did an outstanding job for us. He answered my emails, telephone calls, and workplace questions with effectivity and all the time an amazing perspective. I can’t thank him sufficient for all he did to make this journey a hit.Thank you for recommending Flames of the Forest. It is true on the prime of my record for a favourite tour!!! But, I additionally liked the Great Barrier Reef, the practice and Skyrail in Kuranda, horseback using within the rainforest, Steve Irwin Zoo, and seeing the Sydney Opera House.This journey was well worth the lengthy aircraft journey, being sea sick on the way in which to the Great Barrier Reef, aches and pains from horseback using, and leaving my sun shades on a shuttle. I wouldn’t commerce a minute of the journey.So thanks once more!!!!!Roylynn (June 2012)

Thanks Frank for the WOW journey to New Zealand and Australia! A completely superior expertise. Everything went like clockwork and greater than met our expectations. Thank you for placing collectively a novel and multi-faceted personalize journey. For 16 days we feasted on vibrant websites and enjoyable experiences. We wished to discover areas that almost all vacationers don’t expertise, and due to your huge private data of the world, you had been capable of customise a visit tailor-made to our desires and wishes. Thank you, thanks, thanks. Every side of our journey was excellent. We should admit it was fairly a tradition shock from one place to a different, from the superior pure serene great thing about Nelson and Queenstown in New Zealand, to Sydney, Australia, with the hustle and bustle of an enormous metropolis, with its tall buildings and visitors congestion, however every place had its personal particular uniqueness which we liked. I’ve to be sincere, we had been very involved that About Australia could also be a rip-off entity as I merely discovered you on line and knew nobody that had ever used you. But you had been so educated and useful that we gambled that your organization was legit. But till we really stepped off the aircraft, was instantly greeted by our transportation/shuttle particular person, landed at our resort and located it a lot above our expectations, did we really feel comfy realizing that certainly our religion in you was properly based. We will gladly give testomony that you simply and your organization are stellar…actually, a number of instances we wished to e-mail or name and let you know that we love you for placing this improbable bundle collectively for us! Since we had been three women touring alone celebrating our sixty fifth birthdays, we had been initially a bit not sure if we wished to journey with out the safety of an escorted tour. But after speaking with you about how we’d all the time have vouchers, transportation taken care of, and so forth., we determined we might deal with it. Your planning and the reliability of the businesses you employed, made it a chunk of cake. We discovered the native folks and employees on the accommodations to be unbelievably pleasant, going out of their method to be useful. The accommodations had been all centrally positioned so we might stroll to see the websites, discover eating places, and so forth. We felt secure strolling the streets at any time of the day or evening. If a shuttle was suppose to select us up at 7:25 a.m., it was there at 7:25 a.m. on the dot if not earlier than. Only as soon as out of 16 days was a driver late, and that was in Cairns; so it’s possible you’ll wish to test on that firm. Almost day by day, considered one of us, if not all, stated, “It just does not get any better than this!” At the tip of the journey, the three of us sat down and reviewed our experiences and made a listing of our “Favorites”. They are: Favorite place: Queenstown, New Zealand, with its pure magnificence/spectacular surroundings. It is a clear, quaint city surrounded by rugged excessive mountains and positioned on stunning Lake Wakatipu, which is large. Our second favourite was Sydney with all the road performers, markets, and fascinating folks watching. Two actual opposites however each fantastic in their very own manner. Favorite experiences: We all agreed that kayaking alongside the Kaiteriteri shoreline in Abel Talsman National Park, New Zealand, was our favourite. Absolutely stunning. Plus we had been the one ones that had booked the tour so we had the 23-year outdated good-looking tour information, Sam, all to ourselves, and we might do the whole lot at our personal tempo. Even although the water was deep, we felt very secure. The kayaks had been double seaters with skirts, so we didn’t even get moist. Sam was very educated and useful. The day was solar stuffed, about 65 levels, and the water inexperienced, clear, and calm…and the sack lunch you had ordered for us was an journey in itself, a rooster leg, coleslaw wrap, apple, orange, cookie, quiche, snack, and so forth….an actual deal with, positively yummy! It was an ideal day. We additionally liked Sydney. Since we occurred to be there on the weekend, the The Rocks space out of doors market was open, so we determined to discover that. We all liked purchasing there, actually, we spent about 4 hours seeing all of the locals’ wares and shopping for cool souvenirs, i.e. sterling silver rings, hand-made scarves and sweet, and so forth. We additionally liked the road performers alongside the harbour. Other favorites: Karen: Doubtful Sound, New Zealand; she liked the wonder and seeing all of the animals-dolphins, little blue penguins, and fur seals Carol H: Wildlife Habitat close to Cairns, Australia, the place she obtained to carry a Koala and we might stroll amongst the animals Carol M: Great Ocean Road tour close to Melbourne, Australia, superior surroundings with spectacular views of the blue/inexperienced ocean and the sandstone “apostles” Favorite lodging: Grand Mercure Monaco in Nelson, New Zealand, excellent quaint resort with stunning grounds; we completely liked it. Our “cottage” got here full with kitchen, front room, bed room, bathtub, washer and dryer…and a free shuttle into city. If you go there, strive Lambretta’s restaurant and their filo’s with smoked salmon, spinach, and cream cheese! Favorite meal: (We tried to expertise the native meals) Karen: the inexperienced lip mussel appetizer on the Captains Restaurant in Queenstown, NZ Carol H: the fish usually (we tried the native contemporary fish at most each city) and particularly at Doyles at Watson Bay; it was considered one of our stops on our hop-on and hop-off Captain Cook harbour cruise tour in Sydney Carol M: the New Zealand Lamb Rack with Kumara mashed (mashed candy potatoes) at Captains Restaurant in Qweenstown, NZ Our Tips: Since meals are horribly costly in each nations, we went to little comfort shops just like 7-11s and acquired cereal, milk, yogurt, and fruit so we might eat breakfast in our room; it saved each time within the morning and cash. Two of the locations we stayed (Nelson and Cairns) had kitchens so we had services the place we might make eggs, toast, and so forth. Other accommodations had the little mini bars with fridges that the accommodations inventory with goodies so that you can buy. We emptied them, and stuffed them with our milk, fruit, and so forth.! When we left, we merely put their sellables again in. We are so intelligent/frugal! We reasonably spend our cash on experiences than costly breakfasts. Also, for comfort and to economize, we took granola and protein bars from residence to snack on. We took little prompt oatmeal packets with us, and within the morning we used the resort’s espresso makers to warmth water and whip up a straightforward, quick breakfast, served with contemporary fruit purchased at a comfort retailer. The solely factor I’d change is the Dart River Safari Tour. It was good but it surely took a complete day and was simply rushing up a river. I feel the Shotover Jet Tour would have been extra enjoyable and extra stunning because it went by way of dramatic, slender canyons and the boat does 360 diploma turns. Also, please advise folks staying on the Mantra on the Inlet in Cairns that if they’ve a room on the second flooring, they’ve to hold their baggage up 48 stairs. So in case you have heavy baggage or have bother with steps, this generally is a problem. Again, thanks Frank for sharing your perception and data and planning a visit designed with distinctive, diverse experiences that met our pursuits. It was a completely nice trip with each element taken care of, because of you. You organized 9 flights, 10 excursions, 12 shuttles, and 6 accommodations, all to embody our desires and wishes. All we needed to do was get pleasure from each single minute, which we did. We are recommending you to all our buddies who’ve a want to expertise New Zealand and Australia. You are nice! P.S. If you prefer to extra photos, I can ship them. Carol M, Karen & Carol H (May 2012)

Our journey round Australia couldn’t have been higher. All your planning and preparations labored out to perfection and ran like clockwork. We loved each day in Sydney, Alice Springs, Ayers Rock, and Cairns. Each space we visited introduced new and thrilling experiences. The Cairns diving was an journey in its self.We met have many individuals by way of our travels, however it will take so much to beat the friendliness of the Australian folks. They helped make our complete trip an exquisite expertise.I wish to thanks and About Australia for all of the laborious work it took in planning each element. If About Australia ever wants a advice, don’t hesitate to ask us for one.

All of the cities and excursions all through Australia had been completely wonderful! We would suggest About Australia to anybody and hope everybody will get an opportunity to go to down below!

Tyler and Carissa (May 2012)

Dear AA,I’m writing to let you recognize that we had a improbable expertise with About Australia! Melanie was improbable & I’d positively suggest your organization and Melanie to anybody who’s touring to NZ or AU.

Ryan & I had been snowed-in in Christchurch & after we had been caught for 2 days, Melanie re-booked our flights/actions and adjusted our journey round in order that we didn’t should miss Sydney all collectively. -AND, she faxed all of our new vouchers to our resort, so we had been off & working as soon as we landed in Sydney.

Hi Steffinie,

We had an exquisite time in Australia and had been happy with our expertise with About Australia. I’d be blissful to be a referral if wanted.Attached is a photograph from Sydney. We had a good time diving the Great Barrier Reef, plus the Harbor Bridge Climb was fantastic – liked the view.

Thanks, Terri

Dear Paul,

I’m sorry I haven’t gotten again with you and your associates to THANK YOU a lot for the planning and your consideration to element for the Edwards trip in New Zealand and Australia. It was nice; tiring, however fantastic. Carolynn and I recognize very a lot your making our life time journey an exquisite reminiscence to final a lifetime. If we are able to help with references please don’t hesitate.

Thanks once more,

Phil

Hi Frank & About Australia,

We are residence and had an exquisite journey. Thank you for all of your work. I need to say that just about the whole lot you selected for us was terrific. So, right here I’m going to notice the minor issues that weren’t excellent, simply so you recognize for the longer term. Please perceive, they’re minor and total the journey was A+.In Brisbane, the Coachtrans from the airport sort of stinks. Way too many individuals and manner too many stops for 2 households touring with drained kids. I’d have been glad to have paid extra for a extra direct and personal journey into city. The transportation in Sydney was smaller and extra direct, thus nice, and Darwin and Pt. Douglas labored out fantastic.

The solely disappointment in our touring was the breakneck schedule of our rainforest day. The skyrail up was nice. When we obtained to Karunda, we had nearly no time for the butterfly farm and completely none for the city. That was an enormous bummer, for the reason that city seems so cool. The Rainforest Centre is neat.

However, once more the tempo was breakneck whereas we had been in there and likewise we obtained straight off of the bus from there onto the practice with none time to discover city once more. Personally, I assumed the practice was overrated, however that’s simply me. However, I feel if that tour goes to be a day, there must be an earlier departure and a later pickup and extra free time. Another concept that we had was staying in Karunda or Cairns in a single day afterwards, so the airport could be simpler to get to. It is just not enjoyable getting again to Cairns from Port Douglas.

All in all, although, nice journey, and we’re really appreciative.

Megan

Hi Steffinie and Kim,

We had a G R E A T time on our journey. Kim was fantastic in serving to us plan and guide our excursions together with answering our limitless questions and giving us the small print. We didn’t actually know the place to start out and Kim had a lot of choices for us. The excursions she really useful the place simply what we wished to see and the issues we wished to do.Can’t say sufficient good issues. Even the climate was fantastic! We opted to skip Sydney and see the animals and the reef in Cairns and Brisbane. Just not sufficient time to do all of it. We determined to skip the town (what was artifical) and see the animals (that God made).It was a sensible choice for us. The solely disappointment was the Ibis Hotel in Brisbane.The Novotel in Cairns was good. While the Ibis was in location we had been disenchanted within the resort. The employees on the Ibis was useful, nice {and professional}.

Best Regards, Rex

Hi AA Staff,Thanks for the care bundle with the mug and koala.The camper van in New Zealand labored out nice. I used to be blissful we upgraded to a big one. We turned it in at Auckland and the staff there made us a resort reservation after which dropped us off. Good service!!!! Everything you made plans for labored completely. The accommodations had been all nice, particularly the one in Port Douglas.Weather was dangerous in Port Douglas, so the journey to the reef was in tough seas and the water was cloudy, however we don’t maintain you chargeable for the climate. All the pickups had been there after we arrived. Nice to have that service. Planes had been all the time on time.All in all, I thanks for serving to to make our journey an exquisite expertise. Only factor I’d change—-I’d keep one other two weeks.Sincerely,Jane Dear About Australia,

We had an exquisite journey and want to thank Frank for making all of the preparations. We would definitely suggest About Australia to any of our buddies who could have an curiosity in a visit to Australia/NZ. However, there have been two objects on our itinerary that weren’t first fee. The Mercure’s in Wellington and Dunedin had been disappointing. In Wellington, the itinerary described the placement as being close to the Waterfront. Instead, it was an extended downhill stroll of a few mile. The room was small and never properly appointed. In Dunedin, the Mercure, to be sincere, is a dump. The room was solely giant sufficient to deal with a queen mattress. There was no closet. Although the placement is near the hub of the town, it’s in a decrepit neighborhood. There is a derelict workplace constructing throughout the road and lots of vacancies alongside that part of the road on which the resort is positioned. The facility was described as being a backyard resort close to the college but it surely wasn’t even shut. (I did discover one other Mercure over there after we did a tour of the town). I’d positively advise any buddies to not settle for any stays at any Mercure, besides maybe Rotorua.

The Millenium in Christchurch is fabulous.One serendipitous factor occurred in Dunedin that greater than made up for the disappointing lodging. We observed within the native paper that Kiri Te Kanawa was giving a one efficiency live performance within the city corridor, her first look in Dunedin since she received a singing contest that launched her profession when she was a youngster, and we had been capable of get tickets. She appeared solely not often is NZ ever since. The different spotlight to the journey was the one hour tour of the Sydney Opera House. Our tour information was an actual professional who knew his stuff and he offered himself and his materials higher than any tour information I’ve ever seen and the non-public audio system was glorious. I might hear each phrase he spoke and I’m laborious of listening to.

Overall, we had a good time. Thanks once more. Joe & Joyce
