Not everyone will warm to travelling with a group of strangers, and often getting a small group of your own family or friends together to have an adventure with is often 'the best holiday ever'!.  Celebrating an '0' Birthday and wanting to do something epic to mark the occassion is an increasingly popular market for me.  
I have a reputation for crafting some fantastic itineraries that cater for those that don't want to do what everyone else does! 

I call it TRAVEL LESS ORDINARY...and I really enjoy the challenge of itinerary creation.  I have some great contacts through South East Asia, the Pacific Islands, North and South America whom I love working with and can always gurantee quality customer services.     Active Holidays for Active People is the mantra, and if you like what you are reading, then please get in touch - we are going to get on famously!!

Just a bit of a shout out to Wildside Travel and Andrea Livingston for organizing such an awesome vacation for me and my whanau. If you want to try something off the beaten track, focus on ethical tourism and enjoy an intrepid experience, get in touch with Andrea. I recommend her without reservation. Her contacts and network in South East Asia are excellent. I'll definitely be a repeat customer.
