        Most of our trip was really very good, but I do have some suggestions. First, no one was at the airport to pick us up after 33 hours in transit. I finally reached a Collette representative and a man showed up in a car too small with poor personal hygeine. Once we arrived, the hotel was fine, but we learned that the remainder of our tour would be a day late due to a flight cancellation. I had arranged my own flights and arrived a day earlier. This change for our tour forced us to have a very rushed first day experience. We also lost a day due to another Virgin Australia cancellation en route to Alice Springs. Hiring an unreliable airline to save money resulted in an important piece of the tour lost. The hotel that put us up told us that this was VA's third cancellation that week. Quantas, which we finally flew was the better choice and should have been used in the first place. As for the tour itself, it was very rushed. I would have preferred more days in one place. Fly from Cairns to Alice Springs, have a couple of days there and in Uluru. I could have skipped Melbourne. Sydney was just right. Would have liked to have hiked at Franz Glacier and Mount Cook. Queenstown was just right. Do not have the home hosted dinner the last night, instead, let people say goodbye and have the last night together. All hotels were totally fine. For these reasons, I could only give this tour 3 stars.
