From $1,399 from Los Angeles International Airport and $1,499 from John F.

Nine departures, one each month, are in the offing: September 5, October 10, November 21, December 5, 2007, January 23, February 13, March 12, April 2, and May 7, 2008.

The smartTours “Sydney & Tahiti Express” package features three nights at the Sofitel Tahiti Resort, five nights at the Menzies Hotel in Sydney, full buffet American breakfast daily, a Sydney orientation tour, all transfers in Sydney and Tahiti, and the services of local English-speaking hosts.

 “Down Under” Express Tour
This exciting, compact journey begins as guests board Air Tahiti Nui’s nonstop service to the idyllic islands of Tahiti. After a late evening arrival in Papeete, guests are welcomed with a traditional floral lei before transferring to the newly refurbished beachfront Sofitel Tahiti Resort. Two full days at leisure can be spent admiring Tahiti’s natural beauty and enjoying its rich Polynesian culture. Guests can take a guided 4x4 tour of the island to explore the volcano crater and its resplendent waterfalls, or shop til they drop at the colorful Le Marché and Tahitian black pearl jewelry stores. They can also get out on the water and take a short catamaran ride across the beautiful bay to Moorea, or, perhaps most relaxing of all, vacationers can chill at the Sofitel’s private beach or fresh water pool and take in the amazing blue water views.

Feeling fresh and rejuvenated, travelers continue on their journey to Sydney, Australia’s oldest and most vibrant city. A complimentary guided tour visits the Harbor Bridge, Bondi Beach and other famous beaches, the Botanical Gardens, the celebrated Opera House and historic Rocks area. Known for its exceptionally warm hospitality and traditional friendly service of yesteryear, the centrally located Menzies Hotel will serve as home base for guests’ five days in Sydney.

Four days at leisure provide ample time to explore the city’s many attractions, shop and dine. Optional excursions include a Coffee Cruise or dinner cruise on spectacular Sydney Harbor, or a trip to the Blue Mountains and the Australia Wildlife Park to get close up to kangaroos and koalas.
