Maybe it was watching the sun set over the majestic Indian Ocean in The Maldives, or taking a luxury mud bath with my favourite local wine. It might have been seeing Guanaco in the wild of Argentina, eating Kopai in Western Samoa or shopping in London… No. I can’t pick my favourite international travel experience. But I can help you pick yours.

I’m Niki Davies, world traveller turned boutique travel agent. I offer personalised travel packages for clients who demand the best in New Zealand travel and international travel experiences. I’m a dedicated and highly experienced travel agent who has truly seen it all.

So, whether you’re travelling for business, planning your dream escape or need inspiration for a well-deserved family holiday my inside knowledge of the best family friendly resorts to the finest details of your business itinerary will be taken care of.

My philosophy is based on the highest degree of customer service and attention to detail, in fact, they are the reason why after 26 years in the industry I’m still as passionate today as I was when I started. It is what differentiates a good trip and an exceptional experience.

Gidday, imagine yourself waist deep in pristine powder in some of the world’s best ski resorts, soaking in an Onsen in Japan at the end of a hard day on the slopes, watching the sunset in Oia on the Island of Santorini, following a pack of lions hunting, sailing in Croatia or shopping up a storm in New York, the list of places to visit are endless and I love them all.

Hi, I’m Jackie Matthews and as my star sign, Sagittarius says, “I am born to explore”. I suppose that is why my family and friends have always said “what, not another trip!” I have over 18 years experience in the Travel Industry and plenty of years exploring the world and I haven’t by any means finished. I specialise in creating amazing travel experiences for you wherever your heart takes you and am extremely passionate about designing specialised packages to ski and snow destinations. I have skied in at least 10 countries and this is why I live in Queenstown with the mountains at my back door.

Whether you’re looking a snow holiday, a winter warm up, or just getting out there and experiencing what the world has to offer, give me a call and we will make it happen.

There are certain moments in life when you catch your breath and you are left truly awed and speechless. The moment you see the marble dome of the Taj Mahal emerging from a shroud of mist in the sunrise in the early morning, the moment you sip on a cool gin and tonic as the sun sets on Africa while elephants amble past your camp. Maybe it’s the moment your child squeals with delight on a thrilling roller coaster on the Gold Coast or perhaps it’s when there’s nothing but a luminescent green glow separating you and a billion stars in the far north of the Arctic. Tell me, when was the last time you experienced a `wow’ moment?

I’m Tori Keating, avid explorer and adventurer and co-owner of xtravel- a boutique travel design company creating bespoke holidays that specialises in creating your `wow’ moments. With 13 years’ in the NZ travel industry I delight in sharing my knowledge of unique and distinctive hotels and experiences in the best locations. I’m also an enthusiastic wildlife and adventure junkie, so if hiking, biking, rafting, photographing and getting up close and personal with nature, birds and other wildlife floats your boat, then from Africa to the Galapagos Islands I’m your gal.

While I am fanatical about helping clients travel the world over my true passion lies in Latin America and Antarctica. Having explored from Cartagena in the very north of Colombia all the way down through to Ushuaia at the bottom of Patagonia and beyond to Antarctica over several visits I have first-hand knowledge and expertise to ensure you receive the best attention and experience from your Latin American journey. Whether you’re looking for luxury lodges in the Atacama Desert to hammocks on the beach in Colombia, I am your expert in Latin American travel.

Countries I have travelled to:

Antarctica, Antigua, Argentina, Aruba, Australia, Austria, Barbados, Bolivia, Bonaire, Botswana, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Chile, China, Colombia, Cook Islands, Cuba, Curacao, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, England, Fiji, France, French Polynesia, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Malaysia, Nepal, New Caledonia, New Zealand, Paraguay, Peru, Scotland, South Africa, Singapore, Spain, Sri Lanka, St Lucia, St Maarten, Thailand, The Netherlands, UAE, Uruguay, USA, Wales, Zimbabwe

My name is Fanny Lindblad Hillary, passionate traveller and travel consultant. I love putting together holidays that are personalised to each of my clients, after all, we all like our eggs different in the morning, why would we want the exact same holiday!?

Hailing from Sweden, I spent two years in Sydney, Australia before a kiwi lad swept me off my feet and took me to Queensown, New Zealand. With travel in my blood and a heart to explore, I spend my days dreaming up the perfect getaway for my clients.

So, are you dreaming to cruise around Antarctica? Or maybe you just can’t wait to swim with the whale sharks in Australia? Perhaps the streets of Rome are calling your name!? My goal is to make each of your holidays one to remember!

What are you waiting for?
