Premier Australia/ New Zealand Specialist

G’Day Mate! For more than 30 years it has been my pleasure to help give people the opportunity to discover and experience the world. As a travel agent in Fredericksburg, VA I spend my days planning unforgettable vacations for my clients, enabling them to finally make that dream vacation a reality. Travel is an incredible passion of mine especially to two of my favorite destinations, Australia and New Zealand. I’m honored to be a part of a small group of Premier Aussie Specialists in North America who have spent dedicated time to become an expert in all things Australia in order to provide the best experience possible for my clients. Having traveled to Australia and New Zealand 20 times during my career, I can say with confidence that these destinations will not disappoint! Each country is unique, but both share a few things in common. The people are absolutely wonderful! The caring, friendly and welcoming nature of the people makes these destinations a great place to visit for your next trip. Match that with the fabulous diversity of landscape and this getaway is sure to be one you won’t soon forget. I would recommend not only spending time in the metropolitan cities in Australia and New Zealand but also venturing beyond to see some of the most beautiful scenery in the world. If you are interested in the Great Barrier Reef, the outback or Kangaroo Island, these destinations have it all! My goal is for you not to just go to Australia and New Zealand, but to let you experience Australia and New Zealand. I want to make your trip something you will talk about for years to come and I look forward to helping plan your custom vacation to the land Down Under!

Fantastic first trip to Australia
Mike helped us out with every aspect of our trip. We had never traveled to Australia before, had a finite budget, finite amount of time to be in Australia but we want to make the most of our time and resources and Mike was spot on with accommodations and with sights to see. My husband and I said on more than one occasion. Mike really knows this area well and has absolutely steered us in the right direction.

Amazing Trip
We contacted Mike last minute to help with a 20 day trip. He did a great job. When we ran into a booking problem at a hotel, he was available email to take care of the issue (created by a third party).

Trip was a dream come true!
I was referred to Mike King by a friend who had worked with him on a trip to Australia 2 years ago. Mike was friendly and knowledgeable about arrangements I would need for my 3-week trip to Australia. He answered my questions and suggested activities to consider, and prepared a customized itinerary to accommodate the places I wanted to visit.
Everything went smoothly, such a convenience to have all the details pre-arranged and pre-paid, as well as being prepared with local currency. All I needed to do was show up at the pick-up points on time! I especially liked Port Douglas: stayed at Villa San Michelle, visited the Great Barrier Reef, including an optional helicopter ride!
I had a great time and couldn't believe how fast the 3 weeks went by. This was the first time I've consulted a travel agent to arrange travel; would definitely consider it again for assistance with a complex trip.
