New Zealand: Unspoiled Land Waiting to be Explored

Winery on Waiheke Island

New Zealand - A world of breathtaking visas and warm and friendly people at every bend in the road.


In May 2015 I traveled the South and North Islands of New Zealand.  We rented a car and traveled the north end of the South Island, took the Inter-Island Ferry across to Wellington and traversed the North Island.  The Islands are uncrowded with breathtaking landscapes and some of the most scenic driving routes on the world.  From mountain curves, to farmlands with sheep and goats, to vineyards as far as the eye can see on land and the coast lines with miles and miles of amazing treks from easy to multi-day hikes with lodging along the way, this country is just waiting to be explored. 


Kia ora - I can help you explore New Zealand!

Cruise on the Danube
Overwhelmed by choices for a river cruise we decided to work with a travel agent for our river cruise in Europe. Within a day, Maureen found exactly what we were looking for that fit our schedule and budget. She was prompt with replies to our questions and when our outbound flight was canceled due to weather, she spent hours trying to rebook our flights. Due to the disruption in our plans, she also took care of the changes on our arrival at the destination. She was calm, reassuring, and helpful at every step of the way.

Grand Canyon Plus more!
Maureen was helpful, responsive and always willing to make things work the way we needed them to. We took our family of 5 to Las Vegas, Bryce Canyon, Antelope Canyon, the Grand Canyon and Phoenix AZ. Great vacation, accommodating hotels at a reasonable price.

European Dream
Ms. Janke was truly terrific! My trip is very involved because we were not taking a tour as we usually do. We were going on our own to Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. We had lots of places that we just "had to see" on the itinerary. She did her research and was very helpful in making sure that we were able to create a trip that would be a family favorite for years to come. She suggested opportunities for unique exploration that I did not know about. It is important when spending your hard earned money for a trip that things go smoothly. A travel agent "has your back". Maureen was there for us to answer all questions and find those little out of the way places that make memories. Maureen is that travel agent to help you have either a trip of a lifetime or just a quick fun weekend trip.
Our trip was canceled due to the Coronavirus. That is where the quality travel agent really comes in handy. I made one call to Maureen and she took care of all of the cancellations.

Thank you for your kind words. It makes all my work worthwhile knowing you had a good experience. The last few months have been overwhelming for travelers and agents alike - so glad I was able to be there for you and I'll be here when you are ready to take the trip. Hopefully - very soon! Maureen
