Day 2 - In flight to Sydney
Flying from the USA to Sydney requires crossing the International Date Line, so this day is “lost.”
Day 3 - Arrive Sydney
Upon arrival at the Sydney International Airport, transfer via a KST Sydney Airporter Bus 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 KST Sydney Airporter dispatch office. They will provide instructions on 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 a City Information Packet that includes information and recommendations on 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
Sydney provides an abundance of activities for the 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 district, or take a day trip to the Blue Mountains.
This is an independent extension.
Day 5 - Independent exploration of Sydney

Day 6 - Fly to Christchurch/Join VBT Air Package guests
KST Sydney Airporter Bus transports you from your Sydney Hotel to the airport for your flight from Sydney to Christchurch. Please verify with the front desk the pick-up time for your transfer to the airport. VBT Air Package guests will arrive in Christchurch throughout the day.
Upon arrival at the Christchurch airport, after you have gathered your luggage at the international baggage collection area, proceed toward the main exit past the International Free phone area.
