Expert Trip Leadership, Every Step of the Way
A Vantage Adventure Leader will accompany your group from start to finish of your Australia and New Zealand travel itinerary — leading sightseeing tours, sharing insights, and generally removing the barriers that exist between resident and visitor. You can count on your Adventure Leader to smooth the way, take care of the details, and turn your Vantage adventure into a truly memorable experience.
Meet your Adventure Leader
Ever since she spent a year of her childhood traveling around the world with her parents, Paula has been a passionate explorer — and she shares that passion with travelers through her near-decade of experience as a tour guide and Adventure Leader. Paula’s intimate knowledge of the region (she’s a proud Ozzie!) means your discovery of Australia and New Zealand’s famed attractions, from glorious Sydney to majestic Milford Sound, will be accompanied by her fantastic local tips and tales. Even as she leads the way to new experiences and cultures, you can rest assured that Paula has all the cards in order to give you a truly memorable trip with Vantage.
NEW! ENHANCED COMPLIMENTARY WORLDWIDE CONCIERGE SERVICE
If you have a special request or personal interest you’d like to pursue during your journey, your Vantage Concierge is here to help. Even better, this new and complimentary service is available to all travelers — no matter what cabin category or flight class you’ve reserved (making us the best among other deluxe travel companies!).
Whether you want to plan an anniversary party, track down a bit of your family’s heritage in China, secure restaurant reservations in Paris, or organize an intimate pub crawl for your multigenerational group of family and friends in Ireland, our Concierge service can make your travel dreams come true.
Plus, Concierge service is available before or during your journey. Simply log in to MyPortfolio, submit a pre-trip request to Concierge@vantagetravel.com, or call 1-888-982-6824 and you'll have your answer from our Concierge within two business days. Travelers on our European river ships can also stop by the Concierge Desk (located in your ship’s lobby) to make a request during your journey; for land adventures and small ship cruises, your Adventure Leader or Cruise Director doubles as your onboard Concierge.
Regional Experts in Each Port
No one knows a destination better than an insider, so in addition to your Adventure Leader, you’ll enjoy the services of experienced, English-speaking Regional Experts in select locations during your included excursions. Their deep command of regional history will certainly enrich your viewing of important attractions. But our “insiders” go a step beyond, sharing insights on behind-the-scenes aspects of local culture that ordinary tours usually overlook. How do families in this area get by? What are some of the local legends? What do the decorations on a particular house mean? Your Regional Expert is eager to bring it all alive for you.
