Where do I start! Thank you for a fabulous adventure from the updated agenda waiting for us in our amazing room at the Langham Sydney! Kudos to our private tour guide who showed us his lovely city and shared its history. Uluru "Night at Field of Light" will be one of our favorite memories. The Louise in Barossa Valley and our tour not enough words!!! We felt like we were in the hands of a Personal Sommelier. Then there was the South Ocean Lodge on Kangaroo Island AMAZING. What a finish and the Tailor made it all work like clock work with flights and car rental etc. I highly recommend The Tailor.
