Sydney Taronga Zoo General Entry Ticket and Wild Australia Experience

Sydney, Australia

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This zoo is a must-see when you visit Sydney. Definately take the gondola ride from the ferry - takes you over top of the zoo to the main entrance - you make your way down to the ferry terminal again as you walk through the zoo. Our guided Wild Australia Experience was informative and fun (we ended up with a private tour as the other people that were booked did not show up!) After the tour we had ample time to see the rest of the zoo on our own time. Great exhibits and definately take advantage of the various talks by the zookeepers - very informative. You can have your picture taken with a Koala - but it is you standing beside the tree that the koala is in.

2-Day Reef and Rainforest Package Combo: Green Island Cruise and Kuranda Day Trip

Cairns and Northern Beaches, Australia

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Our day out at Green Island was enjoyable in spite of the rain. We were pleasantly surprised that our package included snorkeling equipment, the glass-bottom boat tour and the semi-submersible - all were great! The water was rather choppy on our way to the island - thankfully they supply ginger tablets at the bar on board for those feeling nauseated. Also, the ability to rent a locker on the island was great. Buffet lunch was also good. The Kuranda Day trip was great (and we had better weather). Train ride was lovely up to Kuranda and we enjoyed the entire package of duck boat tour of rain forest, the aboriginal show and the tour through the wild life exhibit. We were also excited to be able to get our picture taken holding a koala and the price was great. Our tour did not include lunch but we were able to enjoy the salad bar at the buffet for only $9. The gondola ride back to the bottom was spectacular - but definately not for anyone who does not like heights - once you are on there is no other way down. So if heights are a problem - take the bus ride back down the mountain.

Waitomo Caves and Rotorua Day Trip from Auckland

Auckland, New Zealand

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Great tour - but very long day. The Waitomo Caves and glowworms were spectacular. Wish we could have had more time at the Geysers in Rotorua - to wander around the park on our own. Could have had less time at the Agrodome because we had already been to a sheep farm. The sandwich lunch was good and we appreciated the sandwich and water we got at the end of the day for the return trip.

Great day trip - but a long day. Nice to be with a smaller group and not on a large coach. Specatular scenery on the drive up and informative tour guide. The Milford Sound cruise was lovely and the buffet lunch was good.

Arizona Memorial, Pearl Harbor and Punchbowl Sightseeing Tour

Waikiki, Oahu

My Rating
2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

My Review

Did not feel we got value for our $$. Don't know if there is normally a stop at the Punchbowl - but it was raining - so we just drove through. We saw the same things on the Waikiki Trolley that we saw on the drive through downtown Honolulu and we probably could have got ourselves to Pearl Harbour and seen it on our own.

Oahu Grand Circle Island Day Tour with Dole Plantation

Waikiki, Oahu

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Ernie was a great tour gude. Loved the fact that it was a 26-seater bus rather than a large tour bus. He was able to take us into places we wouldn't have been able to on the large bus. The stops along the coast of Oahu were spectacular. Lunch at the ranch was okay. I got the buffet - not really worth the $$. If there is not a line up for the walk-up window it is better value - my husband did this. Overall a great way to see more of Oahu in a day without renting your own car.
