We found Daniel and The First Light Travel team to be very helpful, responsive and good value for money. Daniel made some great suggestions for our holiday to Tasmania and they were a great addition to our initial plans and were fantastic

Hi Emma

We had a great trip thank you, very well put together!

The hotels were all great, we loved the accommodation at Freycinet Resort, very cool. There were some Farmers Markets next to Verge Hotel on Saturday morning which were great, worth recommending to future guests.

 All in all was a great holiday and only positive feedback!

Lani Millington & Reyne Blacks Honeymoon


Hi Emma,

Oh my goodness we had the most amazing honeymoon! Everything was so well planned and went very smoothly. Tassie was absolutely beautiful. There was no issue with the car when we dropped it off at all. Thank you so much for helping us with that.

Our favourite moments were hiking the horse track across to crater peak and Marions lookout at cradle mountain and enjoying a wine by the fire at Peppers. There were so many animals to see there which made it so exciting. Another highlight was the cruise at Freycinet. The lunch and drinks were amazing and we saw so many seals! Our accomodation at Freycinet was astonishing! The spa bath and the beach views were unforgettable.

We really loved the wine tour at Tamar Valley and the food adventures at Bruny island. The wine and oysters in Tassie were so so good. I think we had both of those everyday for the entire two weeks. We also enjoyed St Helens was a nice little town that had character and things to do. The bay of fires rocks are so beautiful.

We can’t thank you enough and have definitely recommended you to friends and family and we would love to plan another holiday with you!

Kindest regards,

Lani Millington & Reyne Black - Australia

Our group of 5 started in Hobart for a 2 week self drive tour finishing in Hobart. Michelle of First Light travel arranged everything wonderfully (we arranged the air travel). The best travel agent we have used for a long time!

From Hobart we drove to Strahan, Cradle Mountain, Launceston, Bay of Fires, Swansea, Port Arthur, Bruny island. Highlights included 'lets do lunch' at Josef Cromy vineyard, Gordon River cruise, Devils at Cradle, Tasman Island cruise, Sarah Island and Tasman Island cruise. all were fabulous and we had a great no-rush holiday.

Greg and Tanya Holdorf

Queensland Australia

Thank you to Emma and the First Light Travel team for helping us plan our Tassie trip. We loved how we were able to tweak a few things here and there. Everything was super organised and smooth sailing. Not only did we thoroughly enjoy our holiday, but we also enjoyed the planning stage.

Here’s a pic of Greg and I enjoying dinner at the Freycinet Lodge restaurant.   The food was amazing!  We loved the accommodation.  Great location.  The staff were so welcoming. Actually all our accommodation was great!   But we loved Freycinet the best. Really enjoyed all our activities.   

Thanks for your expert assistance in planning our trip.

Sophy Davigdor and Aaron London's Honeymoon!

South Australia

Hi Emma

 We both agree it was one of the best holidays either of us have been on. It was effortlessly smooth, the perfect amount of time and a fabulous balance between travelling / activity and downtime

 We recommended your services to several people during the trip and we will certainly be booking again! A couple of photos attached from the wilderness adventure tour with Pennicott and a hike around Dove Lake at Cradle Mountain

Thank you for all of the work behind the scenes

Kind Regards

George & Marie's Honeymoon

NSW Australia

Hi Michelle,

Our honeymoon was amazing. Every day was memorable in its own way and we are so glad we chose to visit Far North Queensland during this time of year. The rain didn’t stop us exploring the reef and the rainforest, and if anything it was refreshing to experience both World heritage sites without the extreme heat and crowds.

We are so grateful that we had you assist us in planning our honeymoon. We will definitely be using First Light Travel again for future South Pacific travel plans.

Many thanks,

George Mavroidis and Marie Trombetta NSW
