Heather Collins


I am proud to be a New Zealander, there is nothing I like better than showing off our country to travellers from near and far. How privileged I am to have been selling New Zealand for over 25 years. After all this time I am still blown away by what New Zealand has to offer, I am continuously seeking out something new I can pass on. I have lived in USA (Tennessee ), Canada (Toronto) and Antarctica, before settling in Christchurch with my husband and our son.

My affiliations with North America continue to assist me in catering to individual travellers needs from all destinations, as we all have different individual requirements. My favourite holiday spot is Marlborough Sounds with friends and family – simply the best combination.

Finally remember these words from Mark Twain “In years from now you will be more disappointed by all things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did”


Travel Consultant

There is something to be celebrated in every season here in New Zealand and I love exploring my own backyard!

Raised in Auckland spending lots of my spare time road tripping around the North Island, I spontaneously moved to Queenstown after honeymooning there and I now have a love for the South Island.

Working in tourism quickly became a passion for me, being able to create once in a life time experiences for people is something so special.

Now living in Christchurch, I find myself more and more excited about adventures to be had. I look forward to sharing the same excitement planning your adventure!


Travel Consultant

I was born and raised in Christchurch and after travelling to the UK, Europe, Middle East, Africa and Asia, I’ve now settled back down in New Zealand with my young family.

I have been lucky to visit some great places, but home is where the heart is and now I love spending my time helping others plan the trip of a life time to my wonderful country, New Zealand.

I look forward to making your holiday a lifetime of memories.
