What a wonderful, wonderful trip you planned for us!

Jeanette,

We are in the Auckland Airport ready to board our plane back to the states in about 90 minutes.  What a wonderful, wonderful trip you planned for us.  Everything went perfectly, and even when it didn’t, it worked out better than planned.  The Adina hotel in Sydney was the only hiccup and moving to the Meriton resulted in a better room and a tremendous view of the city.  You took care of every detail. And Lydia especially wants to say thank you!  For us, it was the right combination of planned events and adventurous exploration, urban and rural.  If you ever want to use us as a reference please feel free to do so and know that we will recommend you to any of our friends planning a trip to this area of the world.  Thanks again and wishing you the very best.

Everything was perfect we had such a good time!

We always had plenty of time to get to anything we had booked so we never felt like we were rushing. Every flight, shuttle, transfer was hassle free.

Driving in New Zealand was easy, I mean a little awkward with the left side driving but overall no problem. I love the freedom of having a car.  We went to Hot water beach which was very fun and interesting. We also hiked to Cathedral cove and that was very nice.

The Farmstay was fantastic, what a nice place that was! It is a huge house with the family on one side and guests on the other, it was laid out very nicely.  We were part of the family the short time we were there. Hung out in the kitchen chatting and walked along on their chores feeding the animals then we all ate dinner together. Really, nice, one of my favorite days!

The Penguin Parade outside of Melbourne was delightful. They were so cute and funny, we loved it! After about 20 minutes they give you the okay and you can go up and to the outside viewing area if you like. A long day but I think there were 3 or 4 stops on the way. The Koala conservation stop was good, there was one little guy who was down quite low in the tree so we got some good pictures.

The Healesville sanctuary was nice however a little similar to the Moonlit sanctuary but I love the animals so that was okay.

We had the whole last day for the Great Ocean Road and that was almost not enough! Stunning coastline, very, very beautiful. We actually drove inland on the way there thinking that might save some time but it was still almost 3 hours one way.There was a little beach there, I can’t remember the name of it now but near the 12 apostles and the gorge, that you could take the stairs down too, so very pretty.

The Parkroyal in Sydney was perfect, an amazing breakfast, I highly recommend that place. We enjoyed the Bondi to Bronte beach walk however it was very windy that day ( and the next ) and it was a little cool. We also took the ferry to Manly beach the day we got there. Did a lot of walking in Sydney even with the bus pass but that was our choice. I feel like we needed one more day in both big cities, especially Melbourne since two full days were out of the city but we just didn’t have the time so there’s nothing we could do about that.

Well, I could go on but I won’t bore you with all my details. As I said at the beginning everything was perfectly planned it was such a relief not having to worry about transportation to and from the airports and I loved having our activities booked ahead of time. Oh, we loved Hobbiton, it was so beautiful there.  Thank you!!! Janis

The Vietnam trip went very smoothly from start to finish!

Arriving at the Saigon Morin Hotel was like seeing an old friend. It hasn’t lost it’s charm. Our guide did an excellent job of keeping us on the move as we had many things to see and do in
Hue. The foodie tour was fun and the cyclo ride was entertaining.

The train ride from Hue to Danang was nice. The mountains are pretty, and the views of the South China Sea coastline added a new dimension.

The hotel in Hoi An was only two years old and furnished nicely. And the hotel Majestic in Ho Chi Minh was just as I had remembered it, conveniently located near the city hall.

Our guide in Ho Chi Minh spoke very good English, and had the ability to use words and phrases that helped us understand the history and customs of the Vietnamese people.

To sum it up, we were very well pleased with the airline, the excellent guides and drivers, and the Vietnamese people in general.   I’ve traveled throughout the world, and have found the people of
Southeast Asia to be the friendliest of all.

Please convey our appreciation to the Inbound Partner staff for a wonderful visit to Vietnam, and thanks to you for putting everything together so I didn’t have to worry.

Thrilled to find a Premiere Aussie Specialist

By in Testimonials No Comments

Al and I just wanted to thank you for arranging our trip to Australia and New Zealand. We could not have been more pleased with your services. Your assistance with the planning of the itinerary was wonderful. You worked with us through several iterations and provided invaluable feedback and knowledge about travelling to Australia and New Zealand. Moreover, we could not believe the wonderful hotels you placed us in. They were outstanding with regards to location and amenities. The side trips in Australia that you arranged to the Rainforest, the Great Ocean Road, the Great Barrier Reef, and the Blue Mountains were superb. Likewise, the train trip, and tours in Queenstown New Zealand were fabulous. The transfers at every leg of the journey were great. You were simply a wealth of information and contacts, and we were thrilled to have found you. Incidentally, we found you on the Australian Government website–where only the best are recommended!!! Again, thank you and we look forward to working with you on future trips.

Sincerely, Maureen and Al – Fullerton, CA

Fantastic Honeymoon in Oz!

By in Testimonials No Comments

Thank you for all that you did to pull together a fantastic honeymoon for us back in November. I fully realize that we were probably the clients from hell, as we consistently changed our focus relative to areas we wanted to visit within Australia. We had a wonderful 2 1/2 weeks down under and can’t wait to visit there again.
