What travellers are saying …
We would like to take this opportunity to share our experiences working with Michelle Streicher. We travelled to NZ and Australia in Jan-Feb 2016. When we decided to plan our adventure, we had many questions about Australia and New Zealand. We presented Michelle with our wish list and budget and within a few days she had options for us to choose from to achieve a fantastic experience. Michelle is very knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with. She helped guide us through all of our concerns. We highly recommend Michelle’s services for anyone who wishes to visit Downunder.Craig & Debbie O'Dette and Mike & Wendy White
Based on our identified priorities of enjoying Wildlife, Geography, Culture, and History, Michelle put together an eight week itinerary in Australia and New Zealand that exceeded our expectations. We experienced the following wildlife in their natural habitats: kangaroo, wombats, koalas, emu, seals and sea lions, tuna farms and the fishing industry, dolphins and whales, exotic birds, kiwi, deer and elk farms, albatross and penguins. We enjoyed panoramic vistas at every turn. Michelle put together a complex itinerary that included planes, trains, automobile, boats, ferries and even gondolas. Our accommodations were fantastic wherever we stayed and largely due to the excellent working relationship between Michelle and the people she works with in Australia and New Zealand, our entire adventure ran smooth and timely.Gilbert & Karen Tayles
I recently had an opportunity to attend a professional convention in Melbourne in February of 2016. Since neither my wife or I knew anything about Australia, we relied on Michelle to help us with our itinerary and make the most of our 3 weeks in Australia. In a pre-trip meeting, Michelle gave us many options regarding excursions and hotels that not only met our timetable but were attractive to our wants allowing us to tailor make our trip. I am so indebted to Michelle who insisted that we do the Sydney Bridge climb. It was awesome. Michelle handled all the limo transfers, air tickets, hotels and excursions which all went off without a hitch. My wife’s dream was to spend a week in Bora Bora and it was Michelle’s excellent suggest to end the trip here, to make it all a memorable experience. Thanks for everything Michelle!Terry Swaine & Marilyn Craig
Having Michelle help us with our 3plus month trip to Australia was one of the best decisions we made. We started planning over a year out and, with her assistance drafting various itineraries for us based upon our expressed preferences, our trip exceeded our expectations. Michelle helped us book affordable flight, car rental and accommodation choices that met our budget and hoped-for experiences. There was no pressure to pre-book tours or attractions, but instead, she provided us with suggested experiences for the multitude of locations we went to allowing us to truly make it our trip at our pace. Overall, we felt we got the most value and enjoyment out of our trip thanks to Michelle’s help. It was joy working with her!Michael and Jane Waddell
