Day 1 - Depart the U.S. and begin your flight over the Pacific Ocean
Depart the U.S. for Sydney, Australia. The particulars of
your arrival overseas are detailed with your final air itinerary.
Day 2 - In flight to Sydney
Flying from the U.S. to Australia requires crossing the
International Date Line, so this day is “lost.”
Day 3 - Arrive Sydney
Upon arrival at the Sydney International Airport, transfer
via AirBus Sydney to your hotel (approximately 45 minutes). VBT
has confirmed your reservations and vouchers are not needed for the bus. After
you have collected your luggage, please use a public phone and dial the toll-free
number: 1 800 33 00 55. This number will connect you with the AirBus Sydney dispatch office. They will provide instructions about where to meet
your airport representative, or direct you to where you will meet your transfer
to your hotel. Important: U.S. citizens must have a visa to enter Australia;
this has been arranged by VBT's Air Department. All you need to carry are your
air tickets and your valid U.S. passport.
VBT provides you with City Information in your Final Travel Booklet
that includes information and recommendations about what to see and do in
Sydney during your stay.
Please note: VBT transfer times and departure points are
finalized in advance and cannot be modified for individual guests.
Day 4 - Independent exploration of Sydney

adventurer, the shopper and the nature lover. You have plenty of time to
explore the city, visit the Sydney Opera House, board the City Circle train to
the historic “Rocks” district, or take a day trip to the Blue Mountains.
