2 nice days in the Sydney area

This was actually Australia not New Zealand. The seaplane ride to and luch at Cottage Point was terrific with a beautiful reide back to Sydney. The next day's trip to the Blue Mountains was also wonderful including the lunch at Echoes.

We planned most of our 20 day trip to Australia, but the highlight of the whole trip was one of her arrangements, a visit to Kangaroo Island. Both the guide and the B&B were superb. She also encouraged us to go Platinum on the Ghan which we are glad we did.

A great adventure

Southern Crossings performed very well to our customized tour of Sydney. The guides were prompt, well groomed and suited us just fine. They were able to answer any questions that we had and were very well versed in the sites that we wanted to see. The transportation was comfortable and clean and ice water was available for our comfort.

All arrangements were what we wanted and as advertised. Socible and knowledgeable tour guides enhanced the trip. Our desired schedule required us to leave Australia early on Australia Day but it would have been fun to party with them.

Southern Cross Review

By: Jerry

Reviewed on: 19 Mar 2018

Every excursion we took arranged through Southern Cross was first rate and exceptional. The guides we had were personable, friendly and knowledgeable. That includes Tase in Melbourne, Allane in Sidney, Patricia on the convict tour and Jeff in Phillip Island. The helicopter excursion we took at Hamilton Island, piloted by the very capable Damian, was the memory of a lifetime. Southern Cross is a high quality operator and I only wish we could use them in other parts of the world.

Put together a four week itinerary for eastern Australian. Nice balance of important sites and leisure time. Great selection of hotels. The only real negative was late notification of a planned Segway tour. Hard to tell whose fault that was as we were unaware of when the Segway provider actually closed operations. Overall we had a great time.

Our experience with Southern Crossings was wonderful. We really enjoyed the luxury lodges that were presented to us, and the side trips and private tours were really special. Unique and so memorable. Everyone was on time, and the places we stayed and what we toured were exactly as explained to us in the brochures and information provided. Along with Lisa Baker's invaluable input, our family trip exceeded our expectations. Thank you Southern Crossings!

Long Distance Expertise and Support

Tanya Knobel of Southern Crossings is an extremely well-informed and supportive travel agent. She worked to book great hotels, arranged excellent theatre tickets, offered informed restaurant suggestions, and kept an eye on me throughout my time in Australia. While traveling there, I would sometimes share the details of my itinerary, and every person I spoke to agreed that it took into account all the highlights of the country. This is a credit to Tanya's abilities. During the trip, I always felt that there was someone nearby who I could turn to in case of an emergency. Working with Nora Winsberg, Tanya covered every detail of the trip. I feel extremely fortunate to have had Tanya's support, and would recommend her without reservation.

Great Vacation!

Southern Crossings had scheduled our tours/trips with excellent companies for small group trips. We went on a tour of the Daintree Forest, a Wine tour in the Hunter Valley Region, and a snorkeling excursion at the Great Barrier Reef in the low isles. Every tour company, every person and tour guide was excellent !! I really can't say enough about our experiences - the tour guides were amazing, the places we went were exactly what we had wanted, the food was so good & each trip was conducted with safety being the most important which we were happy about when on the catamaran ! We also went to see West Side Story at the Opera House in Sydney - our seats were excellent. Southern Crossings used a car service for us that was extremely friendly, professional & always on time. Southern Crossings gave us a bag with our itinerary, tickets and sunscreen & bug spray. My favorite was our itinerary - it was in book form which I loved ! We would absolutely use them again & highly recommend !
