My Review
Because of time restraints, we had to do it in 1 day. We had a great time but please try & spread it over two days. The train ride was nice & very informative. The village at the top was beautiful & full of markets. Wish we could have spent the afternoon up there. The overhead Skyrail back down is AMAZING, 3 separate gondolas above the tree line with a brief tour at each station on the way down, saw all kinds of birds flying across the top of the trees, parrots, cockatoos, etc. Diving off the reef was fantastic but only had the afternoon. Wish I had more time as the boat also did a morning dive. Colours were fantastic as were the varieties of fish & turtles. If I had done this over 2 days it would have been 5 stars.

3-Day Tour from Uluru (Ayers Rock) to Alice Springs via Kings Canyon

Ayers Rock, concludes Alice Springs, Australia

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
Ayers Rock was great, being able to run your hand over pictures hundreds of years old, now wish I had walked on the rock. Many people were walking to the summit. Cattle ranch was amazing. Kings Canyon was also very good, but I never did the rim walk & later regretted it. There is no time limit, take your time & go for it. Dropped off at hotel in Alice Springs, which was a bit of a letdown. We were on the bus anyway, would it have hurt to do a 1 hour tour of Alice Springs before the drop off? Our driver was very informative & funny.

Milford Sound Mariner Overnight Cruise

Milford Sound, New Zealand

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
It rained all day, so when we got there there were waterfalls everywhere, hundreds of them. When the rain stopped, we had a nice cruise, finished up with a friendly supper & a very comfortable overnight stay. Next morning was very misty, but as the sun came up everything cleared away & we had great views of Mitre Peak, falls, etc.
