Your Tour is my business, borne of my love of Hawkes Bay, the place I have lived for over thirty years and where I have raised my family. I am enthusiastic about sharing with others the aspects that make Hawke’s Bay such a special place. In addition to hosting private tours of Hawke’s Bay, I am an Airbnb Superhost and have been hosting guests in our homestay in Greenmeadows for the past 17 years. Hawke’s Bay punches above its weight in both the quality and diversity of its cafes, restaurants & wineries, with some national awards to prove it, so when catching up with friends for a coffee, wine or meal, we are spoilt for choice.
I enjoy walking or cycling some of Hawke’s Bay’s extensive network of walkways & cycle tracks, especially those tracks that follow the coast – and have a café en route! I attend French language classes and have enjoyed the challenge of testing this skill in my travels. This is definitely a work in progress, but I love hosting speakers of all languages, from all over the world, and giving them the opportunity to tour this amazing corner of the world that is Hawke’s Bay.
I like art, in all its forms. Attending local exhibitions and events, and observing & enjoying the public art whilst I am out and about, serves as a reminder to me of the depth of artistic talent we have here in Hawke’s Bay and I have developed bespoke tours to help other art lovers find hidden gems in the Napier, Hastings & Central Hawke’s Bay regions.
In my down time, I try to keep a large garden looking beautiful, and unwinding with a good book, especially one that inspires further travel adventures.
So – that’s me. What about you?
I hope that something you have read, heard about, seen a picture of or experienced in Hawke’s Bay in past visits will encourage you to spend some time exploring this region. I would love to hear about what you would like to see & experience in Hawke’s Bay. If you live here, you’ll already be smitten but a quality might just allow you to see things with a fresh perspective and to appreciate this place all over again.
Do make contact. I look forward to talking to you.
