    Questions & Answers

    We will be arriving in Sydney, Australia on Oct 25th, 2019. Our Pacific cruise (Princess Cruises) ends at the cruise port in the early morning. We will have about 4 hours to kill before our flight from Sydney Airport takes us to Hawaii. There will be 2 of us, with 2 suitcases EACH, and a carry on or 2. - Would you be able to accommodate us.... pick us up at the cruise port at around roughly 10:00AM, take us for an area tour, and then get us to the airport by roughly 2:00 PM? Usually, we are off a cruise ship by 7-8:00 - but stuff happens. - Can we fit in a lunch stop ... just something simple? And potentially a couple of toilet breaks? - Are the vehicles non-smoking? - If the weather is too rainy to enjoy the tour, can we cancel on the day of. We will be coming off a cruise ship that AM, so it may be hard to contact you until that morning. Hopefully this does not happen ... we really don't want to spend 8 hours at the airport. Just want to make sure that this is suitable before we book something. Thanks! ... John K.
