We recently used ‘Go Walk About Travel’ to plan our “trip of a lifetime” to Australia and New Zealand. We were a group of 5 retired Canadians who wanted to see the sights and experience the life down under. Having no knowledge of Australia or New Zealand I enlisted the help of Dianne at Go Walk About Travel to plan the entire five week trip.
During the planning process Dianne asked the right questions to determine what places and experiences we would most enjoy. She was very conscious of health concerns, preferences, and any “idiosyncrasies”. She was able to determine the best flights, hotels and tours within our given price point.
Right from the beginning of our adventure we were delighted with Dianne’s attention to detail, organization and thorough planning. We never had to worry or even think about getting from one place to another – Dianne had that all taken care of . She planned interesting tours for us that showed us the highlights of the cities we visited. She gave us a great variety in types of hotels and had many meals planned for us or gave us suggestions to try. We felt she planned just the right amount of time in each city to see the main interests and get the feel for the culture and food. We really enjoyed the pace of our trip. We felt we had long enough to enjoy each place and were always eager to see what Dianne had planned for us next.
However, we really got to experience the value of using an expert travel agent like Dianne near the end of our trip. Dianne monitored our entire trip and she saw that a cyclone was in our area. Because of the weather, she had to change our plans which was a very difficult task. She changed our flights and our accommodation and spent many hours doing this for us. We were not even aware of the weather situation and without Dianne’s help and experience we would have had a very unfortunate end to our stay in New Zealand. We are all so thankful we had Dianne looking out for us and for the time she spent finding us alternatives.
We all had a fabulous adventure down under and we have Dianne from ‘Go Walk About Travel’ to thank. We would highly recommend using Dianne for a trip to Australia and/or New Zealand which she will make enjoyable and truly memorable.
