My favourite activity: This Kirra tour also includes one of my favourite excursions - Doubtful Sound!

I am a born and bred Kiwi and after travelling the world extensively I returned home many years later to raise my family. As soon as I landed I realised that there really is no place like New Zealand and just knew I had to showcase this to the world. I now dedicate my time so that holidaymakers like yourself can experience that very same revelation.

My favourite tour: For me, it's luxury so the Grand Pacific Tours 19 Day Ultimate Rail, Cruise & Coach Experience is ideal!
My favourite activity: Visiting one of New Zealand's stunning vineyards on a sunny day.
My favourite destination: I couldn't decide, New Zealand is full of so many wonders. Every journey you take leads you to another spectacular vista or experience.
