I have been in the travel industry 31 years and New Zealand is one of my favorite destinations. I can help you make it become one of yours.


I have recently returned from my 3rd visit.On this visit I was able to get to Waiheke Island and taste just a few of MANY award winning wines from various wineries. On a sunny day you get a fantastic view of the Auckland skyline. Want to see glow worms? You can visit the Waitomo Glowworm Caves to if you are a little more adventurous, do what I did, try the Black Water Rafting tour.  That is an experience you won’t soon forget!  If you are looking for a cultural experience, check out the offerings at Rotorua, and don’t forget to try out one of their spas! Like seafood?   Think about taking an Odyessa Seafood Cruise out of Picton.   You get fresh greenshell clams while enjoying the beautiful scenery of Marlborough Sound. You may even see dolphins and seals. And speaking of marine life, if whale watching is on your to do list, Kaikoura should be on your list too.  Depending on the season you go, different whales may be sited.  One of the biggest surprises on this trip was Christchurch.  I was there 3 years ago and I am amazed how it has transformed in the last 3 years.  New hotels, shops, restaurants.  It is wonderful.  If you have a free afternoon, don’t forget to visit the Botanic Gardens, it’s beautiful (and free!)
