Thank you for all the hard work you did for us last spring. It was a wonderful, wonderful trip. Your planning, organization and implementation was superb! All your reservations and vouchers came off without a hitch.
Our month in New Zealand was perfect. Auckland was great and the Imperial Hotel 2 bedroom unit overlooking the harbor was perfect.
Once to Australia, our adventures became more scheduled, according to your itinerary. You were right; the CORAL TREKKER is not a winner, though a lovely square-rigger. The WINDJAMMER was a lovely boat, and we were well taken care of.
I would suggest spending the little bit extra and taking the stateroom over bunkrooms.
Our Rain Forest trip was great: the Daintree Heritage Lodge were excellent. We loved Port Douglas. Kakadu camping was another experience which I would not change, though I am not sure I would recommend it to the faint of heart. It was hot, humid, fetid tents and sleeping bags, mosquitoes and rain. But was wonderfully organized and congenial. All of Alice Springs and Ayers Rock were great. Loved Coober Pedy, the mine tour, Kangaroo Island and Tasmania. Sydney was wonderful, especially staying at the Russell, which is definitely ‘quaint’, and great location!
