We really enjoyed our trip to Australia. I can not imagine the visit without the help of KimKim. First and foremost arranging drivers to meet at airports (we are Americans and really didn’t feel comfortable driving on the left).
Organizing our itinerary so that we we had time to do an appropriate amount of exploring at each of our stops.
Linking us up with appropriate guided tours and activities that picked us up right at our hotel or a short walk away.
Inevitably, when someone we met at a stop told us we MUST do X or see Y, it was something we had done the day before or were scheduled to do the next.
Definitely many of these activities were NOT something that would have occurred to us on our own.
Well Done, KimKim!!
We loved staying at this hotel. 1. Perfect location near transportation, grocery, bottle shop. 2. Ability to fix our own meals. 3. Essential; washer and dryer in room. 4. Courteous knowledgeable staff that really worked hard to help.
In room laundry and kitchen. Close to ocean. Amazing.
FANTASTIC breakfast buffet. Reasonably priced dinners. HUGE pool. Didn’t go in myself, but loved to see the families enjoying it.
Three different restaurants in the hotel to choose from. Great Breakfast buffet!
A nice introduction to Sydney Harbor. Shark Island was on the list of stops , but the ship never stopped there. The ferry service would have suited us equally, as it turned out
The food and wine tour was pleasant. It was mostly about wine tasting, with some food involved. I enjoyed this tour.
The dinner cruise was ok. The view from inside was not particularly good and most of the staff seemed disinterested. However, the food was good.
The Down Under Cruise was a good experience. My wife enjoyed snorkeling in the Great Barrier Reef, but I got seasick. However, I still got to see the reef, which was cool!
The Daintree day tour was fascinating. We got to see crocodiles during a pontoon boat ride on the Daintree River. The tour was way more extensive than just the boat ride.
The camel ride was a unique and enjoyable experience. We rode atop the camel for an hour, with frequent pauses. The ride included some food and drinks, which was nice.
