New Zealand and Australia Specialist

I love nature, photography, snorkeling and soft adventure and would love to help you plan your next adventure. Whether it is hiking in New Zealand, on a glacier or one of New Zealand's MANY hiking trails, then enjoying a glass of wine at one of their fine wineries. Or a small ship adventure in Alaska, Hawaii or Mexico. Even if you are looking for a fantastic beach vacation with fantastic snorkeling, I can help guide you.

Hawaii-amazing trip
This is our third trip we have planned with Jacqie's help. It was another amazing trip! I highly recommend Jacqie as a travel agent. She helped me save so much time, and she always has really good advice for me when planning trips!

A wonderful experience in Maui!
Jacqie did a fantastic job helping us arrange this trip. She was very good at making recommendations and quick to return emails and phone calls. Jacqie also followed up with us to make sure things were going well. I will certainly contact her again for future reservations.

Much more than expected!
Jacqie did a great job in the planning of our vacation. This was the first island vacation we have taken and I had some specific things I wanted. I gave Jacqie the list and let her go to work. She found exactly what I wanted and the experience was more than I anticipated!!! I couldn't have asked for a better location and resort. I will definitely call her for next years vacation.
