Heather Collins - Manager
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”

Sophie - Travel Consultant
Raised in Christchurch and born into a family who loves getting out there and exploring the diverse landscape of our beautiful country, I have always been a fan of New Zealand. It was a no-brainer for me to move forward and earn my Diploma in Travel and Tourism so I could help others see what New Zealand is all about!
From the rugged mountain ranges and the pristine lakes, to the black and golden sandy beaches, the thick West Coast bush, and everything in between… I love it all! Sometimes you love something so much, you don’t want to share it with anyone else. But New Zealand? It has something for everyone… and I hope to help you love it as much as I do! Can’t wait to help you plan your adventure!
Tess - 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.
