The fascinating lands of Australia and New Zealand are waiting to be discovered on this in-depth 34-day tour. You'll cover not just the major cities (it wouldn't be a trip to Australia without a requisite snap of the Opera House) but venture into the country's Red Centre to explore the animal-filled bush and see Uluru at sunset. Save some room on that memory card for the last leg of your trip in New Zealand, where you'll visit a geothermal park, hike around Mt Cook, and cruise through Doubtful Sound, capturing incredible shots all along the way.

“Never been to South America before, but if the other countries in SA are half as brilliant as Peru, then I will have to go back. Everything from food to itinerary, accommodation, and overall arrangement was great. I could not have done this better myself, and it was nice to be able to lean back and enjoy, while our guide made sure we all had a great time.”

“Truly loved Spain and Portugal. Morrocco was exciting as well, but more from a cultural perspective. Really pleased with the overall tour - it was fab! Thanks-”
