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!

“We recently returned from a fabulous trip to New Zealand. I wanted to pass on the name of our guide as he was the best we have ever had in all of our travels. His name is Robert Panzer of Tailored Travel.
After we filled out a questionnaire as to our interests, he planned a custom tour for us - he made all reservations at 5 star B & B's, did all of the driving, took us to all of the best restaurants, and took all of the worry out of traveling. It was a "no headache" trip. Our only regret is that we don't know a "Robert" in every country we travel to!”
