The experience was amazing, from general parameters, Dick Webster created a magical Australia experience that exceeded our expectations at every turn. There was not a single disappointment and there were countless delights. I highly recommend Dick Webster and Journey Earth.
Having Dick plan for us turned out to be a huge part of the magic, while we had the basic information about where we were headed, each time we showed up for what he arranged, we were delighted beyond anything we could have imagined. Fine dining in the Rainforest... candlelight turn down services...beautiful walks, water indulgences and an extraordinary spa experience at Silky Oaks Lodge; Hamilton Island was so magical it felt unreal, the Walabees, the tropical birds, Koala hugging - it was incredible. We also loved driving around in the buggies - and the Sailing trip was spectacular, complete with an amazing sunset. The private tour of Sydney was fantastic. It was a cloudy/rainy day and our tour host, Denis, was flexible, accommodating, and exquisitely attentive. He was also funny, interesting and a great source of information. Every arrangement was as promised, on time, and we were treated with such care everywhere we went. We also loved the helicopter tour over the Great Barrier Reef, astoundingly beautiful. Mostly- we felt cared for and appreciated, and we enjoyed every aspect of discovering Australia in both anticipated and unanticipated ways!
