Great vendors and service!
Reviewed on: 29 Aug 2016
We used Southern World as the local partner through our travel advisor, and the result was an absolutely wonderful and hassle-free vacation experience. Every imaginable piece of our itinerary was taken care of, and they helped create a seamless experience as we explored various parts of New Zealand. Their good reputation with local vendors was also very clear - to the point where hotels and tour operators seemed to be expecting us from the moment we walked in the door on their reservation.

The local drivers provided were personable, professional and prompt picking up or dropping off at locations around Australia. Hotel packages were very accommodating and great choices. In addition to complementary breakfast-free or discounted wifi would have been nice in Brisbane. Tour guides were pleasant. In all, a very good collaboration with our travel professional Cristina.

Our hotel, as we requested, was not top of the line. It was clean and had a great view. The people were delightful! It was walking distance to the harbor, where we enjoyed great fishing and dining experiences. Our disappointment was the beach and waters off the hotel. There was no snorkeling or fish life.

All tours provided (especially the private tours) were informative, knowledgeable and fulfilled the stated goals of each individual tour. The private guides were extremely knowledgeable, enthusiastic and extremely pleasant to travel with.

I had absolutely no issues during my trip. Everything was well organized - I was picked up on time from all locations, the itinerary was proactively confirmed and well explained and easy to follow with paper and mobile option. Overall everything went as planned.

The shire excursions were awful.

We really enjoyed the local guides arranged for Adelaide ( we loved Jayne our guide for wine tasting in Clare Valley) and Tasmania. The group tour on Kangaroos Island was outstanding and we really enjoyed our stay at Stranraer B & B. Our hosts Mr. and Mrs. Wheaton were so gracious and attentive and we highly recommend this experience of staying on a sheep farm. We also were very impressed with the Henry Jones Art Hotel in Hobart, Tasmania. Our room was so historic and comfortable with a great Barbour view. The staff, especially the concierge, were incredibly attentive and helpful. Thanks for suggesting such a unique hotel. Having Southern World arrange the transfer transportation made our travels so much easier and we really enjoyed our conversations with the drivers.
Some accommodations poor

Had me booked in a room on the road, which was not going to work. They said the travel agency should have told me. The agency called and said the hotel shouldn’t have said the agency was supposed to disclose the road. My take was of course they should have full disclosure. The hotel resolved the situation and the agency took credit for working it out. Felt tacky.
Excellent local operators

Southern World provided local tour operators in Melbourne, who were superb, and very flexible with a last minute change to our itinerary.

Southern World was great to work with. They had a mobile itinerary that was easy to use and gave us access to incredible experiences with locals in Australia. You could tell they had really vetted each of the restaurants, hotels, tours, and experiences we scheduled on the trip, because they were all excellent and the perfect balance between luxury, adventure, and relaxation. The pricing was reasonable. For one day on the trip I was sick. The agent we spoke with was great and easily cancelled our evening plans with no hassle.

The Perfect Blend of Fun & Relaxation

Southern World helped to put together the perfect itinerary for our honeymoon! In visiting both Fiji and New Zealand, we knew that we wanted to have a good mix of relaxation and a little bit of adventure in these two very unique destinations. Southern World was able to truly take the best of both countries to plan the exact itinerary we had imagined we would have while on this trip. We know that there is still plenty left to explore in this part of the world and we look forward to working with Southern World to help us do that at some point in the (hopefully!) near future.

I loved this travel company so much I don’t know how Kristina and Kate found such excellent and fun loving people, They were also very knowledgeable and very accommodating and I think if I go back I would use the same company and ask for the same tour guides👍🙏 We had so much fun at feather Dale zoo outside of Sydney and I really loved the VIP tour of the opera house with dinner included and next time I will stay long enough to see an opera🍾🥂‼️🙏🌝😀

Southern World was fantastic. When the ferry to Picton lost a gear box, Southern World was able to re book us on another ferry. We made all our connections on the South Island without a hitch.
