When you are looking at a land package to Australia / New Zealand figure you are going to double the land cost listed once you include Trans-Pacific airfare and the intra tour segments.
Each stop in Australia / New Zealand (Ayers Rock, Tasmania, Barrier Reef, North and South Islands) usually adds $1000 so you should research those activities to see if you want to
include the cost. We are able to add stopovers in Fiji but again that adds about $1500 per person for 2 days.
As I said earlier many cruise lines have moved ships to the Australian / New Zealand market. Some ships sail 7 nights from Sydney but are more programmed for locals and their kids to
go on vacation. Other lines like Holland America, Princess, Celebrity and Royal Caribbean are deployed more for exploration of Australia and New Zealand ports if you are flying in from
the Western Hemisphere.
Feedback we have received is that New Zealand is prettier than Australia but also less developed if you have mobility issues. New Zealand features a lot of coastal towns so it is the
highlight of many cruise itineraries departing from Sydney or Auckland. While we have not traveled to this part of the world our experience is tour operators helps us with the logistics of
getting you to the opposite end of the world. We have the best vendors for this region so we are always a phone call away from experts when we book you to Australia, New Zealand or
the South Pacific.
BOOK AUSTRALIA AND NEW ZEALAND WITH OUR TRAVEL AGENCY
Australia - New Zealand
and The South Pacific
Our agency sells a few trips to Australia and New
Zealand every year. Mostly we do escorted trips
down south as you are visiting a large land area that
includes intra tour flights so group movements via
airplane and motorcoach make sense. Depending
on what you want to see cruise ships can become an
option as they are an efficient way to visit New
Zealand (many of the cities are on the coast) and
they add stops in Sydney, Melbourne and Tasmania
sometimes to round out trip. Finally, we have
programmed some fly/drives in Australia/New
Zealand but they are really fly/fly/ferry/drives with the
intra-tour flight segments and they have tended to
run 30 to 60 days. The typical cruise is 10-14 days
and same with most land tours run 7-21 days.
Since you cross the International Dateline on the way
there the 24 hours flight time seems like two days on
the calendar. Flight prices are competitive and we
usually buy the overwater and intra tour air segments
from the tour company in many instances. All the
flights are usually cheaper if they are packaged with
contract airfare from California or your home
gateway. Given the length of the flights we have had
clients stopover in LAX or another gateway airport to
break up the flights. This is especially helpful on the
way home. We also have air contracts with long haul
carriers so we can get you there no matter what your
plans are once you arrive.
