  New Zealand . . . . . Australia . . . . . Fiji  


 

Sometimes you just want to get away from the snow and enjoy a tour filled with warm weather, and plenty of touring and excitement.  And New Zealand certainly has that in bundles. In fact, The South Island of New Zealand is known as the Adventure Capital of the Southern Hemisphere. Combine that with Auckland, and Rotorua on the North Island, as well as a visit to Hobbiton Village where you can enjoy a beer in the Pub used in The Lord of The Rings movies, and you are bound to have yourself a merry good time.

But no tour to New Zealand is complete unless you allow yourself the options of visiting Australia in the Spring time.  Enjoy the warm waters of the Great Barrier Reef, the tropics of the Kuranda Rain Forest and then head down to Sydney to enjoy some of the most fantastic sights you can see.  Bridge Climb, Sydney Opera House and so much more.

Finally, just when you think you had enough, stop off in Fiji and relax for a few days under the warmth of a tropical sun and enjoy a cold tropical drink in the sand.

Cancellation Policy:
CANCELLATIONS
Cancellations made after deposit paid and prior to the first scheduled payment due date will result in a $50 administrative cancellation fee.

Any cancellation made after the first scheduled payment due date will result in the loss of all moneys paid UNLESS: 1) a wait list exists, and a “gender specific” replacement can accommodate the cancellation; 2) a wait list does not exist, and the canceling party can provide an appropriate “gender specific” replacement; or 3) the trip leader receives and signs up a “gender specific” participant to replace the canceled participant after having received his/her notice to cancel. If a replacement is obtained, an administrative cancellation fee of $100 AND the cost of an “airline ticket name change” (if one required) will be deducted from any refund to the canceled participant. When a wait list is in effect, substitutions of one’s own reservation is prohibited.

Note: The afore stated policy remains in effect when a cancellation is made as a result of a medical or family death situation which prohibits the attendance of the trip participant. Trip participants are encouraged to subscribe to a Trip Cancellation Insurance to ensure reimbursement for such situations. Reimbursement for such cancellation is between the Insurance Company and the insured and not the DSC. Work related cancellations are not generally accommodated by Trip Cancellation Insurance.
