Eloise Le Bout

I have been living in Auckland, New Zealand for almost three years. What made me fall in love right from day one was not only the beautiful wildlife and breathtaking scenery, but also the friendly and welcoming locals. New Zealand is to me a hidden gem that people should explore!

I know very well that everyone has their own very specific reason to travel. Some travel to grow, some travel to meet new people, some travel to relax and unwind, some travel to celebrate. I am here to make sure the very reason you are travelling for is met. I enjoy creating made-to-measure travels to meet all the travellers' expectations, so I can be sure this trip will be a success.

My goal in this is to make sure you have the best time in Aotearoa (New Zealand). Thanks to my expertise and knowledge of the country, I will do my very best to make your stay unforgettable.

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"I specialize in self-driving tailored travels, from mid-range to luxury, depending on the traveller's wishes and requests. "

How did you get involved in travel?

"As far as I can remember, I have always been attracted to travelling. But I think what really made the difference is when my brother decided to go and live abroad, shortly followed by my sister. Hearing their stories really sparked something in me, and I eventually decided to try it myself. This was the best decision I have taken. Travelling is a wonderful experience in so many different aspects, from discovering gorgeous places and sharing stories with interesting people, to learning a new language, and immersing yourself in a new culture. "

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"Shortly after moving to New Zealand, I moved into a big house where 8 people were already flatting. Luckily we all got along very well. Most of them were big fans of hiking and outdoor adventure, and would always try to organise hikes during the weekend. I will never forget this day we went on a waterfall hike, via a hidden track in the Waitakere Ranges, walking up the river for a good 4 hours, then climbing up the side of the waterfall. Such a great adventure!"
