We both can’t believe it’s our last weekend in New Zealand! Our time here has gone so quickly. There is not one thing we would have changed, and that says a lot I think….
Each of the 3 guided walks we did were exceptional, with all the guides being so personable and knowledgeable. We saw and experienced things we wouldn’t have done on our own (and these outings definitely made the most of our available time). The locations and choices for our accommodations have been perfect. The settings have been amazing! A big shout out to our hosts at the 2 B&B’s we stayed at! These were a big surprise- superb accommodations and gracious hosts in lovely picture perfect settings! (great food too!!).
You have crafted a wonderful itinerary for us. We would definitely not have been able to see and experience everything we have, without your guidance. Thanks again for everything!
We have never been the type of people who have used a travel agent before but with planning such a big trip to Australia we were starting to feel overwhelmed.
We found Dianne and GoWalkabout Travel when doing a search for Australian Specialists and we chose them because they were a smaller boutique agency.
Straight away they made us feel very comfortable and listened to our needs. They guided us through each step and gave advice and different suggestions on things that suited our style of travel. We are baby boomers and we have a few health issues so they were very mindful to only choose tour companies that would still give us a great experience.
We highly recommend this company and are so happy we found them!
Thanks again for sending us on our once in a lifetime trip!
I am a solo traveler and would not hesitate to recommend Dianne Hall and Go Walkabout Travel. Working with someone from Australia gives you that extra confidence when booking. Dianne helped me plan out an itinerary that included a visit with friends. Since I was on my own Dianne recommended that I go on a planned bus trip after leaving my friend’s house in Melbourne. I chose to share a room in order not to pay the single supplement. She did warn me that I could end up with a snorer or such things, but luckily I had no problem with my roommate. The whole trip was so well planned and went off without hitches. I had a great time, met great people and wish that I could go back. Dianne is well organized and ensures that you have every last thing required to ensure a smooth trip. I highly recommend using her services.
We wanted to send you a big thank you for the amazing handcrafted itinerary that you designed for us to Australia.
Ever since I was a little girl I had dreamed of having a romantic honeymoon in Australia and you made it happen!
We both love to be active but after planning such a big wedding we enjoyed our down time by the beach so much. We went out snorkeling most days and actually felt relaxed at the end of our vacation – for once!
Thank you again for helping us create some memories. We are looking forward to planning an anniversary trip in the future to New Zealand and we will be in contact for sure!
We had an amazing trip to New Zealand. Everything was extremely smooth and no glitches whatsoever. We loved everything we did and only wished we had more time – isn’t that always the way?! We were thrilled at how easy you made everything…. we just had to drive the car!
My wife and I booked our vacation to Australia with a stopover in New Zealand with GoWalkabout Travel this past October.
We spent 23 days between the both countries with 11 days in New Zealand and 12 days in Australia. Intially we were concerned that we would be really short on time to see both countries but Dianne assured us that she would customize a great itinerary for the amount of time we had.
Well she certainly did just that! During our time in New Zealand we got to visit both the North and South Island. We rode the Tranz Alpine train and we got to go horse riding through some of the beautiful scenery where the Hobbit and Lord of The Rings was filmed. We also drank copious amounts of wonderful New Zealand wine!
In Australia we snorkeled in the Great Barrier Reef, rode camels at sunrise to view Uluru and went for a hike in the beautiful Blue Mountains.
We feel like we got to see so much in 23 days but we know there is so much more! We could spend the rest of our lives touring both countries and still feel like we have not visited all the amazing areas.
Non of this could have happened without our wonderful travel agent Dianne. Her knowledge and experience was beyond anything we expected.
Thanks again Dianne for an amazing and truly unforgettable trip of our lifetime!
G’day (I finally learned how to spell that correctly!)
My wife and I wanted to write and congratulate you and your team on customizing our dream vacation to Australia.
We knew from the start that we may not be your normal type of clientele and that we required extra work, but never once did you make us feel any different.
Our vacation went off without a single hitch which is very unusual for us when we travel!
My wife was so excited to finally hold a Koala (I know it is not a bear) and I finally got to try a surf lesson on Bondi Beach. We found the Aussie people so friendly and feel like we could have stayed their forever.
Thanks again for treating us like we were your one and only clients. I have already been telling all of our friends about your company!
We just wanted to thank you for the amazing trip that you planned for us to Australia. With 6 people traveling we know it was hard to juggle everyone’s requests but some how you managed to do just that!
Some of our vacation highlights were our 4 night cruise on the Great Barrier Reef where we had so much time to snorkel! Our self drive and wine tour in the Margaret River region of Western Australia was so much fun and a few headaches were had the next day… you are from an amazing area! We loved cycling around Rottnest Island or “Rotto” as you locals call it. Those little Quokka’s are really cute.. we wanted to bring one home with us!
Once again we can not thank you enough for putting this together for us. My daughter is planning to have her honeymoon in Tahiti in 2017 and I have already told her to contact GoWalkabout Travel!
Dianne Hall and GoWalkAbout Travel are amazing. We celebrated our 30th anniversary with a 5 1/2 week trip to New Zealand and Australia. We gave her our dates and she planned every detail. It was perfect from start to finish! She was in constant communication with us in the planning stages, gave us detailed itineraries and assistance until the moment of departure, and checked in with us throughout our journey to make sure everything was going according to plan. The adventures she planned for us were fantastic and in several cases were some we had not heard of. We highly recommend Dianne and her team to everyone and are already planning our next adventure with her!
GoWalkAboutTravel has organized major trips for us to Australia and New Zealand. We worked together to define our itineraries and then travelled on our own in both countries, moving from one location to the next seamlessly. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend GoWalkAboutTravel as the “go-to” expert for adventures in Australia and New Zealand. In fact, friends who acted on our referral, were very happy they did so.
