Even though the weather didn't seem to want to cooperate we boarded our mini van with a very interesting and informed driver/guide. He was funny and informative and made us a group of guests rather than seven couples of tourists. This was our last excursion in Australia/New Zealand and we truly enjoyed the sights and knowledge we gained about the area. There were a few couples who were just starting out their holidays and I feel they started with a bang too !!! There was some tense moments when we realized we were suppose to contact a local tour company to check in (48 hours prior but which said it was closed on weekends and we were going on a Sunday and had been in the ocean before that). But we took a cab to the Casino in Sydney and asked lots of ??? of where we might meet tours). Good directions from everyone and found a real person @ a tours counter who had our name on the list. We were sent to a big bus at first but then relocated on the mini van list. Don't know if we were the extras or signed up for the mini but if you have a choice take the mini van tour. We did the same stops with some extras because we could fit in smaller spaces !! We had tea at a small deli and lunch at a wonderful old B and B. The most confusing time on the tour was the wait for the river boat back into Sydney Harbour as more than one came and the other two were more commuter/local transportation. But I noticed our guide/driver was waiting around until we all boarded the correct boat. Beautiful scenery and wonderful stories. Our visit to a local wildlife sancturary was also great. This was our 4-5th wildlife center so we began to compare. Some are more open area ( with more opportunity to interact with animals) but this is a very good opportunity to touch and get up close to them.
Worth every penny spent on this excursion.
