Hi Shelby, We absolutely loved the trip. Everything you put together for us was excellent. Really! There were no mishaps!
All trips to and from the airport to the hotels worked out fine. The Harbor Cruise was lovely. The tour company for the Blue Mountains was top top notch. The guide, Alex, was one of the best any of us had ever experienced. In fact, the tour company owners came to the pier to see if we were satisfied and to see us off the the last leg. Great choice of tour companies. We were very happy with the apartment in Port Douglas. The location was good, the apt was lovely and large enough for us, the pool and BBQ grill great and the manager Sue was very helpful. Another great choice.
All the tours in Ayers Rock were also great. The Kata Tjuta on Day 1 and Ayers Rock on Day 2 were both amazing and we enjoyed speaking with the tour guides. The camel ride was hokey but fun and I enjoyed speaking to the cameleers as well. What a lifestyle! These apartments were very basic but entirely functional.
These were the tours you set us up with. We also filled in with: driving around the Gold Coast beaches on our own, the boat Quicksilver in Port Douglas for diving and snorkeling (a highlight for me). Hiking in the Rainforest, Stargazing in the Outback, and Phillip Island for Koala bears and the little penguins. (We did the VIP tour - definitely worth it). And tons of walking and taking trams around the cities.
I would definitely recommend anyone to use your services. Thanks for all your help. Sue & Frank, NY - Sep 2014
