Tailored Travel Talk. NZ Spring 2014
Kia Ora Travelers,
Spring is here! Lambing is underway and daffodils are coloring the landscape all over.
Last month we invited our previous guests from the past three years to submit photos they had taken and reflect their New Zealand experience. All photos are posted on our Facebook page and one is here to the right.
New Zealand will have the chance to vote for their government on 20 September –in an entirely different approach and execution from the USA presidential elections.
As usual, if you refer guests who sign up with Tailored Travel for a guided custom tour, we will reward you with ‘Gathered Thoughts: The basket of knowledge in Maori legend’. These are commissioned art works, mixed media on hand made paper by local Nelson artist Marilyn Andrews. See picture on the right.
On 28 September New Zealander’s will put the clock forward –spring’s definitely here!
Air Tahiti Nui has added Washington DC to their itinerary, thanks to an expanded code share agreement with American Airways. Nowadays, 15 US cities are accessible via this new code-share agreement. They also have a new International terminal at Los Angeles (LAX)
New York has a bit of Kiwi; you can now cool down at the minus 5 degree ice bar at the Hilton Midtown. 80 tons of carved ice creating the walls, chairs, sculptures, including the ‘glasses’ you drink from. Some of you may have visited the one here in Queenstown!
HAVEN”T BEEN TO NEW ZEALAND YET? OR PLANNING ANOTHER VISIT?
Escape before the Christmas break with a relaxing New Zealand journey, exploring our scenery, culture and acquire some unique NZ purchases such as Jade –to take back to the cold and put under the tree. OR: BBQ on the beach, dreaming of a white Christmas at 80 degrees F: Sounds different? Sounds New Zealand!

“Traveling with Robert of Tailored Travel surpassed our expectations. He developed an itinerary unique to us, which we could not have done in a group or on our own. He was very knowledgeable and supplemented his extensive knowledge by doing ‘homework/ research’ during the evening in several cases making the trip extremely educational and rewarding. We understand and appreciate New Zealand in a way that would not have been possible without Tailored Travel. In addition, Robert was always there when we needed him, but also gave us time on our own and was never intrusive. A very compatible fellow traveler!”
“We had a spectacular time on our trip with you. A couple of things stand out;
- You provided just the right balance of availability to be with us and importantly for us to be by ourselves. The flexibility and sensitivity were notable.
- We appreciated the ‘homework’ you did several evenings on subjects that interested us-like the power plant near Doubtful Sound
- The accommodations you selected were great, nice knowledgeable people and great locations.
- The food was uniformly excellent.”
