Northern Discovery with Homestay summer 2018

Some of the choices were fine but others could have been better, mostly because of lack of information. Fuzzy itinerary by Trafalgar in original literature and not much better in trip itinerary. Buffets at most of hotels were ordinary, should have option of ordering off menu rather than all buffets. Read more

TRAILS OF NEW ZEALAND August 2016

3.0

Trails of New Zealand

visiting new zealand is like visiting a child. the land itself is still developing. its fresh and exciting. you get the feeling that its looking forward to its future. its not jaded like europe. it has an unique history - no major battles have been fought there - the maoris and white settlers have lived for the most part in harmony - there's no sense of anomisity. Its very dramatic but also peaceful and inspirational. anything and everything is possible
for me the most inspirational moments of my trip were very personal. i have a fear of being trapped underground and also having had a one and only disastorous experience at kayaking i wasnt looking forward to either of these parts of the trip.  however i was everyone was very supportive and the activites were carried out with complete safety.  i really enjoyed both going through the caves and kayaking through the sound.

I didnt feel the group leaders were as involved in with the group as other group leaders have been on previous holidays. on this holiday the group leaders tended to take you somewhere and then wait til you had done the activity. I didnt feel that they joined in and they seemed a bit distant from the group. apart from the first night they didnt join the group for evening meals even in places where there was only one or two resturants.

be prepared for all types of weather and dont forgot insect repellant. you will hike to and see some amazing places.

having been forced by the group leaders to finish my holiday with the group earlier than planned because the earthquake in christchurch meant the group leaders couldnt get me to the airport in time for my flight i didnt feel there was any support for me. I was left in queenstown on my own where i had to sort out my own accommodation and transport to christchurch.  i missed out on two days with the group - two days of activities and two days of companionship - the whole reason why i book on these holidays - so that im travelling with others and not on my own. very disappointing end to an otherwise amazing holiday.

Taste of Australia

Been a nightmare, and we haven't even left yet. And may not get to if Indus has it''s way. It's a long story, but I will try to keep it short. We booked our tour to Australia back in Nov/Dec 2018, paid the deposit, and then paid the remainder in Jan 2019. Indus sent me a receipt/invoice showing I owed ZERO now for the tour and that it was paid in full. Our tour is set to depart 4-16-19, and since Jan I have been thinking all is well and calling/emailing every so often to ask when our flights/travel docs will be issued. They kept telling me 45 days before the departure. Well guess what? Yesterday Tayna (my tour coordinator) contacts me and tells me that due to a "glitch" in THEIR computer they will not release my tour and travel documents unless I pay almost another $1700!!! And is it now about 3 WEEKS from departure, so I have very little recourse to do much. Seriously?!? I spent hours on email and calls trying to explain that they cannot just arbitrarily try to charge me more, especially since it was THEIR error. They just kept insisting that I had to pay the money or they would not issue my travel documents. I then found a policy, ON THEIR OWN WEBSITE, that says they will not change the price after a final payment is made (which I did back in Jan 2019). I have forwarded all my documents, and the policy from the website, and have asked for either a full refund or issuance of my trip/travel docs. Tanya assured me yesterday that a manager was looking into this, and that I would have an answer by this morning. The next day, I got a call back from Tanya: they are refusing to give a full refund or release the trip unless I pay because they claim they didn't change anything (despite the fact that they are not demanding double what I've already paid) and that the new demand for additional payment does not constitute a price change; despite the documents I have from them with a zero balance since Jan 2019. This looks an awful lot like fraud, extortion, and illegal seizure of funds. I just want my money back at this point because I've been dealing with this since 3-20-19; and I honestly no longer feel that this company would be a safe one to travel with/through. If they acting like this, and doing these very questionable things, before I even leave; what in the world would they try to pull when I am no longer Stateside?!? Read more
