A true New Zealander born in Christchurch but now living in the heart of the southern alps, Wanaka. My favourite spot in New Zealand would have to be Akaroa. My family still has a good old kiwi bach here and spending time with them near the water soaking my feet, having a true kiwi BBQ and taking in the beautiful scenery is what it's all about. Give me a call and I can help plan your wonderful New Zealand Vacation.

After working in the outbound travel sector, I wanted to plan and arrange holidays for visitors coming to New Zealand and hence joined New Zealand Fine Touring. I grew up in Dunedin but visited Wanaka every year. I love exploring the outdoors and enjoy skiing, camping and 4wd so our base here in Wanaka is the ideal location for that. I would love to work with you to help plan your New Zealand vacation.

Born and bred in Wales, my first experience of New Zealand was at age 20 for a month I saw the highlights of both islands and knew it wouldn’t be the last time I visited. Before I knew it, the opportunity to return 5 years ago, meant that I was to move to the South Island to train as a ski instructor in Wanaka at Treble Cone. My goal is to share my passion and love for this country, that I am now lucky to call home.
