Heaphy Track hiking trip in New Zealand
The most memorable part of the track was coming down from the tussock highlands along the Heaphy River, emerging out of the forest and seeing the beaches of The Tasman Sea. (more)Allan Justus
A great experience particularly with the tour operator passing on so much information about the geography, flora, fauna and history. (more)Peter Ladd
Seeing the rare Blue Duck close up in it's natural environment was very special. I also loved being in the company of people from around the World who were passionate about the environment. (more)Wendy Grace
From NZ $1749 excluding flights
Uluru and the Olgas tour in Australia
Memorable parts? The tour of Kata Tjuta - Ben the guide's knowledge and experience was simply wonderful. I've never met someone who could talk with such knowledge about geology, widlife, country lore. Tips? Camping was a bit basic but a wonderful experience - cooking over an open fire under a clear unpolluted night sky was simply ethereal. Local benefits? Yes. (more)Farida Parkyn
From US $648 excluding flights
Tasmania east coast camping & walking tour
If you love nature, want to discover the wild and rugged beauty of Tasmania with a fantastic guide/chef/botanist/photography coach, I wholeheartedly recommend going on this tour! (more)Alexandra Grellet
The vacation was fantastic and I would recommend using this company wholeheartedly. The equipment was excellent, the food was substantial and healthy. The activities were well planned and tailored to the needs of the group. (more)Kathy Layton
From AU $995 - AU $1295 excluding flights
B&B self drive tour of Tasmania, meet the locals
We'll be back - can't speak more highly than that. (more)kathleen revell
The whole of Tasmania is just awesome; so every part of the travel is memorable. (more)Lim HunHo
It was a fantastic tour of the island, the memories from which we we will savour for the rest of our lives. (more)Sandra Mendenhall
From AU $950 - AU $2950 excluding flights
Great Ocean Walk vacation in Victoria, Australia
Memorable parts? The first two days of the Great Ocean Walk; also the Atherton tablelands stay. Tips? Do some research into precisely what's offered on each trip - the Red Centre tour wasn't exactly what was predicted. Local benefits? Yes, except for Red Centre tour, which relied a lot on Aboriginal culture and settings, but seemed to involve no indigenous people. Overall rating? Very good. (more)Anne Owers
From AU $2595 - AU $2795 excluding flights
Antarctica and New Zealand Subantarctic Islands Wildlife Cruise
Memorable parts? The sub antarctic islands, wildlife and the icebergs. Tips? Prepare for a big sea voyage and lots of time to spare. Local benefits? There are no people, but the environment is excellent and getting better as recovery from last 2 centuries of exploitation has taken place. Nz and Aust governments should be congratulated on the feral pest controls. Overall rating? Up there with the big ones. (more)Robert Mock
From US $22300 - US $30200 excluding flights
Great Ocean Road and Grampians 3 day tour, Australia
Memorable parts? Having a very close encounter with a baby koala, rescued from the main road by our driver/guide Jeremy. Although his mum was up a tree nearby, after sitting at the bottom and thinking about it, he decided to head back towards the road, so we travelers blocked his path. He came right to my feet and sat down!! Very special moment I will never forget. Tips? We could only book a 2 day trip as we were leaving for Tasmania but the company was very accommodating and...

Melbourne to Adelaide 3 day tour, Australia
Memorable parts? Traveling along the Ocean Drive road and thanks to Pierre, our guide and driver, showing us places and providing loads of interesting information, which we would never have had doing the trip between Melbourne and Adelaide on our own. Tips? Local benefits? Certainly. All our stops were to local restaurants, hotels and a winery. Overall rating? A tremendous success, it was a small group, four of us and I thick I can say we all felt comfortable sharing... (more)Jane Jimenez
From AU $672.50 - AU $1545 excluding flights
New Zealand hiking vacation
Memorable parts? The scenery, the culture, the tour leader Mayuko was the best leader ever. Very friendly, helpful, warm, informative she made the vacation. Tips? Travel light there is a lot of moving around between train stations and bus stations etc. Food is limiting enough if you don't eat meat/fish. Be prepared to eat a lot of rice and noodles Local benefits? All of the above yes Overall rating? Very good. More traveling on buses and trains than I had... (more)Roisin Courtney
