Our Tours


FullSizeRenderItaly 2017 Next year we have two Italian trips planned, also a new tour from Montreal cruising down the St Lawrence river around Nova Scotia and down the Maine coast to New York with days in both Montreal and New York at either end. This is going to be fantastic taking in all the beautiful fall colours of the maple trees and arcadia national park.
I’m also researching a show to attend and what’s on in the museums and galleries of New York and a few local knowledge shopping trips so get your name on the list quick, even an early show of interest can secure you get a place. Our tours are only even about 12—16 passengers so places are naturally limited.

We are putting together a return tour to London, the Cotswold’s and Scotland for next year too so lots to think about and look forward too.

FullSizeRender 1Dubai is always our preferred stop over for 3 days---- there’s nothing in Dubai that we miss out on including fabulous day tours to the desert to a Bedouin camp, we go on a tour to the palm islands and Atlantis, up to the top of the world’s tallest building (quite a challenge for Christchurch people) and of course loads of shopping and sightseeing. Our hotel is right next to the Burj Kalifa tallest building and a few steps to the huge shopping mall. The Old Palace Hotel where we stay in Dubai is very luxurious and has incredible restaurants including one where we have a Middle Eastern cooking lesson.

Mama in Italys son in law Said [ pronounced Si EDE ] was our wonderful guide for this tour. Ive been five times to Morocco with him and he really is great. We feel incredibly safe with him and see so much more with the locals knowledge, he's also great when it comes to buying persian rugs etc and can get you by far the best price and for the really authentic work.
