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.

Another Super, Perfectly Planned Trip
Jacqie has been our travel agent for several years now. She does a wonderful job during the whole process of planning a trip . She always has several options that are in our price range and the destination we want to go. She then assists us in booking the type of room we want, helping us secure lodging and parking at the airport, getting our seats assigned, and securing private transfers when we arrive at our destination. She does it all, and it has always worked out perfectly.

Amazing Trip Arranged By An Amazing Travel Agent!
Jacqie is amazing at what she does by finding the perfect vacation within your travel budget. She was able to find wonderful deals and many options to fit our needs. We have thoroughly enjoyed every vacation she has helped plan for us. Her services make planning easy and stress free. Definitely worth the modest fee she charges. Our most recent trip to Alaska on a 7 day Norwegian Cruise surpassed our wildest expectations and our memories will last a lifetime. We strongly recommend going through Jacqie for any future travel plans. She understands our family's specific needs and perfectly matches what we are looking for each time. We look forward to booking our next vacation and adventure with her!

Fabulous vacation from start to end!
You and your agency made our trip a flawless one, from the stay at our hotel and transportation to and from the airport to the stay at our amazing resort and the transportation to and from it.
The communication was excellent from the time we booked the trip right up until the trip itself.

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.
