amazing trip, well worth it!

30 Dec 2011 - 02 Jan 2012

This trip was brilliant!

The accommodation was brilliant, great location next to station/bars/shops and within walking distance of the CBD, very clean and had a wide choice at breakfast.

The meal on the first night (included) was short on choice (about 3 options for our group with no mention of choosing from the main restaurant menu) but the options were lovely (fish, lamb or kangaroo) and everyone enjoyed their meal.

The group of people were great, very friendly and there were enough of us to pick small groups of people you wanted to chat too, but a short enough trip that it didn't get clicky and everyone could mingle between groups.

The highlight was of course the cruise in Sydney harbor for the fireworks. The drinks flowed, the food was good and the music was great for a dance with lots of variety (loads of songs that made you go 'I love this song' or 'remember this?')

The down side was probably the coach tour of the city, although we got to see some sights through the coach window and gain an idea of where things were, in hindsight I would have preferred to have spent that time wandering around the city getting to actually experience it rather than sat on a coach. However, at the end of that tour we did get two hours at Bondi which was good. Personally I would have used my day more wisely had I realized we wouldn't be getting off the coach until we hit the beach. (This is just something to bear in mind, although you could look a bit anti-social not going...it is something to weigh up!)

I would most definitely recommend this tour as a wonderful way to spend new year. It was long enough to feel like I have seen a fair bit of Sydney and the NYE celebrations will be something I remember forever. It was a hassle free trip with the best view of the fireworks anyone could ask for! It is something I will remember forever!

Thank you Contiki!
