Your Tour is my business, borne of my love of Hawkes Bay, the place I have lived in for over thirty years and where I have raised my family. I am enthusiastic about sharing with others the aspects that make this region so special. In addition to hosting customised, private tours of Hawke’s Bay, I host guests in our gorgeous homestay in Greenmeadows.
Hawke’s Bay is renowned for the quality of its cafes and restaurants, with some national award winners to prove it. I love to take advantage of this range of vibes & flavours when catching-up with friends for a coffee or meal. I enjoy walking and cycling some of Hawke’s Bay’s extensive network of tracks, especially those that follow the coast – and have a café en route! I have been learning French for several years and take opportunities to practise this language in my travels. On my tours, I enjoy hosting speakers of all languages, from all over the world, with much that can be shared and learned on both sides.
I like art, in all its forms. As I attend local exhibitions and events, and observe our public art whilst out and about, I am reminded of the depth of artistic talent that we have here in Hawke’s Bay. To this end, I have developed bespoke tours to help other art lovers find hidden gems in this region.
In my down time, I try to keep a large garden looking beautiful, and enjoy unwinding with a 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 and experience in Hawke’s Bay. If you live here, you’ll already be smitten but a quality tour 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.
