I have travelled extensively both solo as well as a guide. I have experienced many beautiful moments as well as situations that did not go 100% according to plan. The amazing adventures taught me how to appreciate life and the world around me. Those that were not perfect helped me learn how to keep my calm and resolve tricky situations. My aim is to create trouble-free, memorable holidays that will make my clients leave NZ with a smile on their faces.

I was originally born in Cairns Australia and when I was 6 years old my parents sold everything and took me and my sister to New Orleans where they bought a sail yacht. We lived on it for 6 years and travelled through the Caribbean and then went through the Panama Canal and spent a bit of time in the South Pacific ocean. We eventually returned to Australia and based ourselves in the Sunshine Coast where I completed high school. After coming to New Zealand on holiday, I instantly fell in love and have now made Wanaka my home. Travelling is a huge part of my childhood and continues to be a major part of my life, it is a deep passion and I am super excited to share that with you when assisting you in creating your perfect holiday.

My favourite place: Wanaka, is my favourite place for many reasons. I love the extreme variations in seasons, from the hot and dry summers to the cold and snowy winters. The vibrant oranges and ambers of autumn and blue skies and blossoms of spring.

Having spent 4 years travelling around Canada, Europe and South America, working across all areas of the ski and hospitality industry, I realised my dream and moved to New Zealand. I spent 4 months travelling in my van, exploring all the sights NZ has to offer and love that I can share my experiences with others looking for an equally amazing time in this beautiful country. Though winter is where I thrive, in summer I still can’t tear myself away from the mountains. I spend my time hiking and rock climbing and love to help others out with where the best spots are!

My favourite place: The Wairarapa Valley has some of the most beautiful hikes I’ve ever done and to rest the sore legs after a long day of hiking it really doesn't get much better than any of the wonderful wineries the area has to offer. Head south to the rugged Cape Palliser and say g’day to the seals en route!

After leaving the UK 10 years ago, I fell in love with New Zealand. Since then, I have been working in the travel industry and organising tours for 9 years. From climbing mountains across New Zealand to kayaking the beautiful blue oceans & lakes, this region has so much to offer. I love a good road trip, and New Zealand easily offers some of the best in the world. Everywhere you look could easily be put on a postcard, so I always advise travellers to make sure their cameras have enough battery life to capture the breathtaking scenery.

My favourite place: Queenstown, the views that hit you as you come through the valley in to the town will never stop impressing me, whether their snow capped in the winter or being lit up by the sun in the summer they will always give you that “wow” factor.

I first stepped foot in New Zealand 10 years ago and immediately fell in love with this outstanding country. I spent two months travelling around in a campervan called Albert and couldn’t wait for the next opportunity to visit. After completing my degree in Sport and Exercise Science, I started working for a tailor-made holiday company in the UK, specialising in trips to Australia and New Zealand. During this time I was fortunate enough to visit Australia and New Zealand on multiple occasions, experiencing the tours and accommodations recommended to clients. After 4 years, I decided it was time to move to the spectacular New Zealand to really embrace the culture and feeling of this special place and I haven’t looked back since!

I also know what to avoid and the best times of year to visit different places and encounter wildlife.

Joshua Brewster, 2 day TranzAlpine and West Coast Glaciers to Queenstown, Travelled on 15 April 2024

Hi Brittany, I will just say that my daughter and I had an incredible time on the South Island of New Zealand!!! The land is truly incredible with a powerful Earth energy! The 2-day Thrifty tour kicked off our trip and it was an awesome way to start. The train was a lot of fun and the staff were polite and professional. We covered so much ground in 2 days and saw so many different things and remote places. It was a lot of travel time but how else are you going to see so many different things and remote places. Our “check-in” at the train and hotel were easy. Gary with Hokitika tours was waiting for us in Greymouth and was a great tour guide and driver. Same with Richard from Glacial Shuttles. He picked us up right on time the next day and we had a great tour to Queenstown. Both drivers were flexible and offered to stop and check out anything we wanted. Sometimes we stopped and sometimes we just kept going. Our trip from Greymouth to Franz Joseph was rainy and cloudy. We passed right by Mt Cook but couldn’t see it, but I trust it was there. When we arrived in Franz Joseph, the clouds were set low, so we didn’t see much of anything. You start to wonder why you can so far if you can’t see anything but I think that helped set up the next morning's surprise. We got up early for coffee in downtown Franz Joseph and the clouds had cleared and the view was inspiring! This 2 day trip might not be for everyone. Some people might not like being around so many mountains, rivers, giant lakes, ocean beaches, rain forests, glaciers and waterfalls. Especially waterfalls, if you really don’t like waterfalls, the south island might not be for you! But me and my daughter really love those things, so the South Island was like a dream come true! Separately, we also got to Fiordland and Milford Sound from the home base of Queenstown. Finally, we topped off our tour of the South Island with a live Kiwi encounter at the center in Queenstown. We flew from Queenstown to Sydney where we spent several days and then traveled to Uluru for several days. We finished the trip with 3 days in Auckland so I could see experience the city my daughter’s been living in this semester. We could have easily spent more time in NZ but it seemed necessary to step foot in Australia being so close. Thrifty Tours helped us to check out a lot of the South Island in a short time. We appreciate your help to set it up and include so many details and instructions. This e-mail is just my personal response to you. If you like, I can write up a similar review. We took a lot of pictures, but I need to sort through them to see if any are worthy of sharing. Thanks again, Josh

Mark & Lisa Montemuro, 10 Day Southern National Parks, Travelled on 14 Feb 2024

Thank you for a great trip. Owen Hunt was a great to work with on setting up our itinerary & tweaking it as things changed. All of our pickups, hotels, and excursions went perfectly. We did recommend Thrifty tours to other people along the way, and would in the future as well. Thanks, Mark & Lisa Montemuro

Robin & Alan Paro, New North and South Itineary, Travelled on 6 Mar 2024

Vickie, thank you for creating a wonderful itinerary for us! We had a great trip. We loved both islands. In Rotorua, we also did the Redwood Night time Treewalk which we'd highly recommend to your other clients. A fun little extra. We also did a biking wine tour in Queenstown. The only item that was a little nuisance was leaving the Millennium Hotel on Stanley Street which was a steep street and having to transfer with luggage down to Athol Street in Queenstown for our transfer to Franz Josef. It would have also been nice to coordinate to have more than a few hours one evening in Franz Josef as it looked like a quaint town worthy of one day. We definitely want to come back and we'd use your services again if we can!! All the private transfer drivers were great as well!

Tanveer Bhagat & Jasmeen Bindra, Best of Both Islands Tour, Travelled on 21 Feb 2024
