Q:

Is it possible to leave PHX on 8/31/13 for Sydney and then on to Cairns for this tour? After arriving back in Sydney (for the return flight home) we would like to on our own, go to Melbourne to visit my brother for a week, then fly to Queensland and travel the south island on our own, fly FROM Christchurch to Auckland. Stay in Auckland about 4 nights . The total time in New Zealand 12-14 days. We would then fly back to Sydeny for the return flight or if possible return to PHX from Auckland instead of Sydney.. In total we would be gone about 1 month. Marcia

Marcia V.  asked on  Jan 8, 2013

A:

Hi Marcia - Yes, this is possible for the most part. There is a $50 per person deviation fee and all land must be completed by September 15 for our package, so as long as you do all the extras after the package, it should be fine. The PHX add-on should run about $149 per person, but is subject to availability. Worst case with your planning is to consider making your way to LAX to connect with the flight. You must return from Sydney at the end of your trip, so you will be responcible to get back from New Zealand to connect.

Q:

I see that this is an 11 day trip with 8 nights in a hotel. I assume we are on our own to find loding the other nights? Also, I do not see information on how to get from Sydney to Cairns and back. Can you please help with these questions. Thanks.
