Despite we planned to do this trip very late (less than 1 month before the departure), everything was done perfectly: all bookings made in 1 week And targeting exactly what we expected (hotels and activities). The hotels were very comfortable and in a ideal place in each city. We really loved all the activities : excellent guides with a lot of experience, good advices and sense of humor.

Despite we planned to do this trip very late (less than 1 month before the departure), everything was done perfectly: all bookings made in 1 week And targeting exactly what we expected (hotels and activities). The hotels were very comfortable and in a ideal place in each city. We really loved all the activities : excellent guides with a lot of experience, good advices and sense of humor. The only activity we liked less was the barrier reef boat trip because the weather was quite bad but also because it was a “mass “ activity (more than 100 people in the boat). Our best memories will be the biking in Sydney, the magnificent blue mountains, we did by ourselves a walking day starting in Bondy beach and it was great !, in Cairns, we visited the beautiful tropical gardens, and finally in Melbourne, we loved the arcades walk with the guide (despite the rain) and the trip to Philip Island (it was so fantastic to see penguins and wallabies in their natural environment!). Australia was full of surprises even for people like us who live in an exotic country (Thailand) : seeing cacatoès, ibis, perrots and giant bats in the middle of a big city is really unusual ! We loved this mix of nature and modernity.

Hotel Review
PARKROYAL Darling Harbour, Sydney
Sydney

good location close to Darling harbor and only 30 minutes walking to the Sydney opera. Comfort and very good breakfast.

Authenticity & Character
Unfortunately the hotel is stuck between a road bridge and a massive hotel so the view is really bad
Location
Close to public transportation and Sydney places to visit
Staff
Cleanliness & Comfort
Activity Review
Full Day Blue Mountains Deluxe Day
Sydney

Very difficult to choose the best activity: blue mountains is finally our choice because of the stop to the farm so we could see koala, wallaby and kangaroo very close and then the fantastic views and water falls! It was a perfect day
