Make Your Next Trip Extraordinary

We were able to see so much, and it was very well organized
Maxine Awner | May 3, 2023

We planned a trip with Sara, Sarah, Jacki and Stuart. A friend who has used them gave me the referral and I would say it was great! We had a family of four with two adult daughters in their 20s, so planning a trip that would accommodate all of our wants and needs wasn’t easy. We planned the trip for three weeks going to see as much of both countries that we could. It was accomplished! We were able to see so much, and it was very well organized all around. The hotels, tour guides, drivers and events were great.

I would definitely recommend Stuart and Sarahs’ offices, and we will be using Wendy Perrin’s other agents around the world for our next trip.

The private tour of the Sydney Opera House was a highlight of the trip

We booked a trip to Australia with Stuart’s office from 1/20 to 1/27/2023. The pre-planning for the trip was done very well. The team was flexible and attentive as we iterated on various options. The private tour of the Sydney Opera House was a highlight of the trip. Unfortunately, one of our group contracted COVID, but the help from Stuart’s team was amazing. Within a few hours, they found a 2-bedroom/2-bath apartment for us to isolate in. It was clean, well located and made the process more palatable. They also quickly got back to us with what refunds were available and what we would need to file with our travel insurance. I would highly recommend them.

Make sure to visit small towns and rural areas to really get a flavor of the country

Just returned from a 3-week Australian vacation and can’t wait to return! A big shout-out to Jacki Lang and Stuart Rigg for making our trip a seamless dream. Jacki planned not one, but two Australian vacations for us, as our first trip had to be cancelled a few weeks before our travel date due to the pandemic. Stuart’s office took the time to listen to what type of travel experience we were looking for and planned our trip accordingly. Hotel options were wonderful, including both classic city properties and isolated eco-friendly villas. Our private guides throughout were top-notch and flexible. It was wonderful getting to meet Jacki in Sydney upon our arrival! She was even able to make changes and schedule new excursions for us during our trip at the last minute!

With only 3 weeks to visit, we made the choice to concentrate our time in the southeastern portion of the country. Do not try and cover too much ground when visiting Australia. Remember, the country is truly a continent and traveling between cities can take up a good portion of your time if you aren’t careful! Dont underestimate travel distances! Make sure to visit small towns and rural areas to really get a flavor of the country!

New Year’s Eve in Sydney is an amazing experience, but the crowds are huge, locals tend to leave the city, and hotel prices skyrocket as you might expect. Also, many restaurants will close over the holiday, as this is prime summer vacation time Down Under. Make dining reservations ahead of time if there are any restaurants on your bucket list!

Finally, make sure to build in some down time in the places you visit!

Thanks to Stuart’s team for helping us plan this amazing Australian vacation! Thanks to Wendy for another amazing referral!!!
