Diverse hotel selections. Good transportation transitions and car rental. Reasonable cost of changes in trip planning. New Zealand portion of the trip was well planned and showed expertise in the knowledge of the locations and transitions.

Well organized, some poor hotel choices

By: Owen

Intercontinental Fiji way over priced (e.g. Breakfast started at $60 US per person). Sydney Harbour Marriott, was under major renovations, no lobby to speak of, lounge a block away and closed on the weekend, jackhammers and the smell of tar. just unbelievably inconvenient. 4. Intercontinental Tahiti, arrived at 11:30 at night and the corridors were completely blacked out, groping our way trying to read door numbers to room. Room was at the very end of the hotel (next to airport) and windows shook until 1 am with jets taking off over resuming at 6 next morning.

Islands in the Sun

For the most part excellent. We did miss out on two tours. When Rum Ran the Rocks (Sydney) we discovered after we waited and waited we had an employee at I-site call and discovered that the tour had been cancelled that morning due to a problem at their end. Very apologetic and said a refund would happen. The second tour was missed as my trip booklet told us to be at the I-site in Rotorua (no prior mention of calling anyone to confirm). We finally spoke to Carol from the tour company after waiting, and waiting at the I-site, only to find they had gone to our hotel to pick us up?! I asked her about a refund and she was not sure if her boss would do this. Within seconds another tour bus company pulled up and the lady at the I-site office rushed out and got us on it. We had to pay of course on the spot but did get to see the geysers and geo thermal pools etc after all. My husband and I found all the bus drivers and tour guides to be knowledgeable about their tours and helpful too! Thanks

We are very happy with the tour, including the route, the stops along the way, the comfort of the coach, the accommodation, the tour guide and the driver. We got a good feel for the vast amount of country we covered while at the same time enjoying the local culture.

I'm not sure what you are looking for here? Is this about the tours we took? Not familiar with the name Islands in the Sun. If that is what this is about, the tours and the tour guides were all very knowledgeable, polite, and excited about showing us their beautiful island. Their enthusiasm to show us the beauty and culture of their their islands made the excursions. worthwhile. We very much enjoyed the experience

Anniversary trip to Tahiti

It was a fantastic trip. The only glitch was no one told us our 8:30 am was changed to 1:00 pm so we had to accomplish a 4 hour tour in 3 hours since the last tender left at 4:00 pm.

New Zealand Tour

By: Susie Q

Reviewed on: 17 Mar 2018

I thoroughly enjoyed the tour. The sights were amazing, and I feel that all of the best parts of New Zealand were presented to me. I enjoyed the extra choices presented for us. The more daring could choose the more active side tours, and those seeking something more restful could enjoy themselves as well. The hotels booked and the food were generally first rate, with only maybe 2 less desirable ones. But at those the food was usually great. We travelled 4,160 km. or so, and the bus was comfortable and the driver friendly and professional. I liked spending 2 days at some locations so we could take a break and go into more depth at these places, like at Auckland.The brochures and detailed information about each day and side tour were very helpful, and I feel that I was able to make informed choices.Our tour guide would often send around more information about these choices, when we could change our minds or stay with our original choices.She was very knowledgeable and professional.

This was a great tour! All of the tour guides were super friendly and happily answered all of our questions. They managed to educate the group while still being entertaining! The only downside was it rained the entire time we were in Cairns, but can't predict the weather when you book a trip in advance. Would do it again!
