Julia Thorne

Throughout a career in photography and journalism Julia's passion for travel has never waned.

Stretching out of her comfort zone on adventures across the continents has fed her enthusiasm for sharing journeys with others.

"Connecting with different people and cultures, sharing New Zealand and truly authentiic experiences is what makes life fun and fulfilling" she says.

Aotearoa is Julia's home-turf and as a fifth generation kiwi she mainly hosts small private groups on their soft-adventures throughout the Zealandia continent.

"Exploring back-roads scenery, regional wines and produce, arts, boat rides, nature walks, historic towns and quirky "kiwiana" are all part of the bespoke tours." 

"We don't just "tick the box" - even though this country truly is "one out of the box!".

"If I had to sum up our main point of difference, I'd say it was "natural, beautiful diversity" - in scenery, culture and opportunity" Julia says. 

"Enhancing my guests' time in 'god-zone' brings huge satisfaction for us all ".

Julia is available as a private driver/guide (kaiarahi) for pre-arranged small group tours or creates "made to measure" itineraries for active, discerning 40+/- age-group travellers.
