Phenomenal ExperienceTo begin, I would like to say this is probably one of the most laid back tours I know of. It's not fast paced at all, which makes it totally easier to enjoy your time in an unknown area. I love being able to explore on my own just as much as touring with my group and learning with others, and that's exactly what I got from this experience. There is so much to learn while on this adventure. From the Maori tribe in New Zealand, to the wild dingos on Fraser Island, petting a kangaroo at an animal sanctuary, and even experiencing the Sydney Opera House; there is too many things to name that is worth seeing and doing while on this trip of a lifetime. If I had to name at least one down-side to this trip, it's the time change.. Other than that, I loved it all! This phenomenonal experiance has me definitely wanting to go back and explore more on my own.
Simply Amazing!The New Zealand and Australia tour was simply amazing. Everyday was filled with excitement. The excursions were unique; they allowed you to see different aspects of the countries. You'll learn about the cultures, historical monuments, the languages, various wildlife and much, much more. The value is great, especially considering the length of the tour. If you have an opportunity to take this tour, do it. It is simply amazing.
No Worries, mate!I finally made in Down Under!!! Having already lead European tours every summer for the past ten years, I never believed I would ever make it to New Zealand and Australia!!! I really didn't know what to expect but suffice it to say that we are already planning on a return visit!!
New Zealand is relaxing and calm. Our resort in Rotorua was perfect. Every breakfast comes complete with eggs, sausages, bacon, pancakes and other local items like fresh squeezed kiwi juice! The highlight for me was our tour of the Whaka Geothermal Village. It's amazing!! The Maori Village feast was exciting and educational!
The people in Australia are so friendly! The cities are safe and clean. The food is delicious. There are no worries on this tour and even though we were there during their winter, we did swim in the ocean.
My favorite stop was a surf location called Noosa. It's the ultimate surf spot! I loved Bondi Beach and collected sand for my surf loving husband!
Frasier Island was another two night stop. The resort was beautiful and don't miss the night tour complete with powerful flashlights to spot the animals! And don't forget to look up and spot the Southern Cross and magnificent Milky Way!!
Sydney is big but friendly and safe! I couldn't stop taking pictures of the Opera House! There are opportunities to hold koala bears and feed kangaroos! The animals are absolutely beautiful and will not disappoint!
Finally, none of this would have happened without our amazing Tour Director named Adam. He loves his country and is gracious with sharing his knowledge with us!
Don't worry about the long flight over. We broke it up by opting to take the optional extension to Hawaii on the way home. It was nice to come home with a tan!!! NO WORRIES, MATE!!!!
Trip of a lifetime!The trip to New Zealand, Australia, and Hawaii was truly a trip of a lifetime! From the Maori Village, geothermal lands, coastal Australia, the sights of Sydney, Honolulu and Pearl Harbor, I could not have asked for anything more. Thank you EF tours for helping to make my dream trip amazing!
We had the best time!!!!Just came back from a awesome tour of New Zealand and Australia. Could not have asked for a better tour guide! She was very welcoming and very informative and kept us on time to see our various local tours. I loved our time in both countries.
Totally rad tripHad an amazing time in Australia and New Zealand for my first international travel. My group leader was very intelligent and knew a lot about both countries. The excursions were super fun and I made a lot of new friends. Overall want to go on more EF trips!
Lit!! 10/10 would do againJust got back from our EF trip and I miss it so much! It's an amazing experience. You not only get to learn so much about that NZ and Aus history and culture but you also get to meet new people from other areas and states. I highly recommend traveling through EF. Also scored an amazing tour director and gained many friends. Love and miss you "Tigs", you were amazing <3
unforgettable, wonderful experienceTour of Australia and New Zealand was professionally arranged and organized. The physical features, beauty and amazing cultures of both countries came alive before our eyes. Our tour guides were very knowledgeable and accommodating. The experience was very educational and extremely rewarding.
Greatest Trip EverThis was my first time traveling outside the US and the entire trip was an amazing experience! I'm signed up to do another trip in March, now to London. The confidence I gained and personal growth I experienced on my trip to Australia and New Zeland was priceless and now a whole new world has been opened up to me!!
