I grew up in Dunedin in the lower South Island, as a family we would travel around the South Island camping and exploring its natural beauty which I still do to this day. I like to share my lifetime knowledge of New Zealand with my travellers and make you fall in love with New Zealand as well.
I specialise in creating the perfect New Zealand holiday to suit you, from hiking in the outdoors to relaxing on wine tours, my wide variety of knowledge will help create your perfect holiday, so tell me more about you, what you enjoy doing when travelling, what you are interests are, and I will use this to create your perfect custom itinerary.
What places and activities do you specialize in?
"New Zealand has so much to offer that I try to not specialise in anything particular. My knowledge is so broad from snorkelling, skiing, museums, history. However my favourite location is the West Coast of the South Island, with its natural diversity from Rainforests to untouched beaches and glaciers, I like to enjoy our great outdoors and love to show this off to my travellers as well. "
How did you get involved in travel?
" I decided to complete my final year of high school as an international exchange student in Switzerland and after a year abroad I came back to New Zealand wanting to help others explore the world. I then realised the passion I had for New Zealand and wanted to show the world what we had to offer when an opportunity to join the team in Wanaka and specialise in arranging New Zealand holidays arose, I jumped at the chance. 5 years later the passion for showing off New Zealand has not changed."
Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.
"I arranged a short road trip along the West Coast of the South Island to enjoy its wild and remote wilderness. Joining a small tour north of Punakaiki, I travelled into the West Coast rainforest via a small unique train, we hiked into the cave in our wetsuits, hardhats, and headlamps whilst carrying our inner tubes to explore the stalagmites and stalactites of the natural cave system before floating out of the cave on a tube under the glistening glow worms. The day was topped off exploring the region and finding some remnants of my ancestors in the small gold mining region."
