    Best parts:
    The trip was very well organized. Instructions on where to be at what time and directions to our hotels were a big help. Our hotels and B & B's were top quality and each had something different to offer. The tour guides were all phenomenal and taught us a lot about the region.
    Worst parts:
    Long drives on mountainous roads (but they were beautiful). Some of the tours were not explained fully and might have opted out of them. Cancellations of tours due to weather (no one's fault)
    Summary:
    . We had always wanted to go to Australia and New Zealand. Who wouldn't want to visit there. The scuba diving on the Great Barrier Reef was a bucket list experience.

Sailing by the Sydney Opera House. Hiking through the rainforest. Seeing the glowworms. Visiting the wineries and enjoying some New Zealand wines. Sitting on the verandas at the B&B's. Relaxing in the hot pools. The overnight trip on Doubtful Sound. So much to enjoy, difficult to name all of the venues. The people were the best. Everyone was so accommodating and hospitble.See more

    Best parts:
    This trip was designed for our interests and still had flexibility so we could change our minds on the fly. The best part was that every single thing went flawlessly! Every driver on time, every reservation in place, every guide knowledgeable and helpful. We were amazed at how it all came together. We appreciated that Amanda came up with options we could never have found on our own--the day we spent with Cam from *** Tours was a good example.
    Worst parts:
    We had to leave New Zealand.

Every accommodation was exceptional and nearly every host enriched our experience by introducing us to friends in the local community, as well as to other guests. We took boat trips, helicopter trips, train rides, explored caves and vineyards, and wandered in lovely cities. We never had a bad meal or met with an unpleasant experience. Thank you to our trip planners and to New Zealand!See more
