Great short tour!

19 Dec 2013 - 28 Dec 2013

This tour was everything I wanted in Australia, to explore Sydney, see the opera house, hold a koala, and climb the Sydney Harbour Bridge! It was my first Contiki trip and I felt like Australia is a good place to go for a first overseas trip. Nick was a great tour guide and was very accommodating, he had great temperament considering he was dealing with a bus of 50 travelers! You will meet people from all over the world on this tour and that is seriously the best part.

However, I wasn't told that this trip was part of a larger Contiki trip that was traveling all over Australia. When you leave, a bunch of the travelers continue on. I definitely want to come back sometime and finish the rest of the trip. I recommend paying a little more for a longer trip if you can, otherwise you'll definitely have a case of FOMO when you get home!

I definitely recommend this tour if someone is looking for a short and brief taste of the east coast. I only did this short trip because I also flew over to Australia's west coast for a week and a half. I know everyone says it's expensive in Australia, but seriously, prepare yourself for how truly expensive everything is there!
