Down Under in Australia

Sydney is known as the Harbour City. It's the largest, oldest and most cosmopolitan city in Australia. Brimming with history, culture, nature, art, fashion, design, and cuisine, Sydney's set next to miles of ocean coastline and sandy surf beaches. Make sure you visit the Opera House, and the Harbour Bridge. The Bridge Climb is an incredible experience! Take a day trip to the Blue Mountains, a rugged region west of Sydney. The dramatic scenery, steep cliffs, eucalyptus forests, waterfalls and villages make this excursion worth the trip! Travel up the Gold Coast (which is a beautiful drive) to Brisbane. Continue along the Coast up to Port Douglas which is near Cairns. Here you can stay in the Thala Beach Resort, set on a private stretch of beach in the rainforest and great access to the Great Barrier Reef. Snorkel, swim and dive in the infamous Great Barrier Reef, truly a once in a lifetime experience. Or perhaps travel the other direction down to Melbourne, another fabulous area of Australia. Here you can take a drive on the Great Ocean Road, visit Yarra Valley and sip some wine or ride the famous Colonial Tramcar. Or take a waddle on the wild side and see the Penguin Parade on Phillip Island, only 90 minutes from Melbourne I have had the unique opportunity to travel to Australia, and absolutely loved it. When traveling that far overseas, I wanted to see as much of the country as possible. You can quickly realize that with the sheer size of Australia, you simply cannot see it all in one trip. I was able to see quite a bit on my stay, and would love to share my experience to help make your trip the trip of a lifetime!!!

Best Honeymoon Ever
Throughout the process Sue was extremely helpful. In the beginning she gave us a breakdown of the different island in Hawaii. We initially wanted to do island hopping, but Sue didn't recommend it during our first trip. She was right; it would have been too stressful! Maui was the recommended island and it was the right choice. Sue was very accommodating when finding us a resort to stay. She understood what we wanted and brought up the Royal Lahaina. The RL was the perfect resort for us. Sue also gave us an idea of some activities to do on Maui. We didn't book any activities with her directly because of the stressful wedding planning. We did however do a lot of the activities she recommended. When we arrived at the RL, my wife was disappointed with the view as we thought we booked an ocean view. We emailed Sue and she connected with her contact in Maui to accommodate us. I must add it was on Saturday, her day off! She took care of us and we couldn't be more grateful. Thank you Sue!

Great Vacations Every Time
We have been working with Sue since 2008. She was actually recommended to us from another friend. She has provided exceptional assistance with trips we have taken. She helped us organize a trip to London prior to picking up a cruise out of Southampton. She got us a great deal on a hotel/airfare package. Also, she assists us with decisions on cruises and working with the cruise company to get us the best deals as well as being a liaison with the cruise company when we have made special requests. We have utilized Sue's experience many times now and we really enjoy working with her and will continue to work with her for all of our future vacations.
