    Sydney was great! Free time allowed us to see more of the city on our own time. Would have liked to see a performance at the Sydney Opera House however.

    Way too much time in airports because of flight connections that should have been direct. Tours didn't get scheduled leaving our Tour Manager scrambling to get them fixed.

    Terrible planning by Collette with tours that didn't get scheduled. Flights were a mess. There were too many connecting flights which took away from our free time and we spent way too much time in airports. This took away from our free time to explore on our own and rushed us through some of our tours.

    Your heading indicates that tour purchase was 3/1/2023. Our original tour was scheduled 3/6/2023 but was changed to 2/27/2023. There were a number of items that weren't scheduled by Collette and our Tour Manager had to get them fixed. Also, our original tour date was moved "to allow everyone that booked through Farmer's Union Insurance to be on the same tour". I'm not sure why they would have had others on our designated tour dates. Because of this, I believe our in-country flights were a mess. There were too many connecting flights which took away from our free time. Overall, I think this tour would have been spectacular if the ball hadn't been dropped so many times by Collette.

    Travel and event planning was poor. Spent way too much time in airports- taking away a lot of our free time. We had 3 trips to Sydney- a lot of wasted time!!

    The location of all of the hotels was excellent however, many seemed unprepared for guests. I realize this is a result of the pandemic and hopefully the issues encountered will resolve themselves as the hotels are open longer.

    Great tour. Didn’t miss any sites or experiences. Lots of logistic challenges on this tour handled perfectly by the tour manager.
