Cruise New Zealand's Marlborough Sounds

Day 12

A luncheon cruise featuring wine and green-lipped mussels

From New Zealand's South Island – renowned for its incredible seafood and its wine-growing expertise – set off on a private luncheon cruise on Marlborough Sounds, featuring local wine and delectable green-lipped mussels; sail amidst forested landscapes rising steeply from the sea around a scenic coastline of sheltered inlets and sandy bays.

Tasting your way through Sydney

Day 8

A "Foodie Tour" sampling some of Sydney's coolest eats

A knowledgeable local guide leads the way on a "Taste of Sydney" foodie tour that celebrates the multicultural heritage of the city and its gastronomic legacy – including seafood at a fish market, beer tasting at a brewery, samplings of savories, sweets and more.

Silky Oaks Lodge

Nights 4, 5 and 6

In one of the world's oldest rainforests, a tropical paradise

Silky Oaks Lodge borders one of the oldest rainforests on Earth – Australia's World Heritage-listed Daintree National Park – and overlooks the beautiful Mossman River. It's the perfect spot for experiencing fine dining in an ancient rainforest... indulging in the award-winning Healing Waters Spa... going for lazy swims in the Billabong... or simply enjoying the stunning forest and river vistas from a hammock.

We have traveled the world extensively, but this was our first Tauck Tour. It won't be our last. The organization and value for what was included exceeded our expectations.

It was wonderful from start to finish!

Most Memorable Moment:

Queensland adventure of Van ride, jet boat and helicopter.

We had an excellent guide who did far more than keep things organized. He was knowledgeable about so many aspects of both countries, and he was just plain fun. Our tour group had a blast because he was so fun. Our itinerary was great with the right amount of touring and free time. The local guides were outstanding.

Most Memorable Moment:

Jet boating in New Zealand
