South Island New Zealand Travel Agent Specialist

Queenstown is a great place to visit. 


New Zealand Travel Agent Specialist

New Zealand is one of the most stunning places in the world and I can’t wait to help you plan your adventure but first a little about me...


I have been customizing New Zealand vacations for over 25 years.  I first became a Kiwi Specialist in 2001 after I returned home from my first trip to the South Island and was hooked. I have since visited almost the entire country multiple times. Each year I travel to New Zealand to visit new locations, maintain relationships with local companies and keep up to date with current developments.


Over the years I have traveled as an active single abseiling down waterfalls, jetboating rivers, kayaking sounds and hiking the Great Walks of New Zealand.


Later as a mother with young children, I visited wildlife sanctuaries searching for kiwi birds, went to the International Antarctic Centre to learn about penguins, went for walks in Abel Tasman National Park, rode zip lines in native forests and took the Skyline Gondola to the top of Bob’s Peak.


And now as business professional and middle-aged adult I have had the opportunity to participate some of the more luxury experiences of New Zealand including food and wine, scenic helicopter rides over volcanoes and glaciers, golfing some of the top golf courses in the world. I have stayed in a variety of New Zealand Luxury Lodges, farm stays and some unbelievable boutique accommodations.


With my firsthand knowledge and professional experience and variety of perspectives I will take the time to listen to your thoughts, concerns, and dreams to provide you with a unique and exciting travel experience that best suits your interests and travel style.  


Call or email me and let me plan your next adventure to New Zealand.


100% Pure New Zealand

An extraordinary travel planner
I am a travel agent partner who has worked with Dawn many times. Each itinerary was unique and intricate. Dawn is a one in a million travel partner. She is extremely knowledgeable, thorough, and patient. She puts her all into travel planning. She is an excellent listener, enabling the agent and the clients to be completely confident in putting their trip in Dawn's capable hands. She leaves no stone unturned. My most challenging and discriminating clients were always wowed by her talent in planning travel. And Dawn was always willing to spend time conferencing with me and clients in order to really understand their wishes. Call Dawn for sure!
