Jacqie Swanson

Rice Lake, WI

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.

Best Mexico Trip Yet!
We gave Jacqie a pretty big list of requests and a smaller budget and she delivered on all of them!!! She gave us plenty of options and helped us narrow it down to the best place for us! Great vacation, can't wait to plan the next one!
