Born and raised in New Zealand, I spent some time travelling all over the planet before moving to France 15 years ago, and I’ve made Lyon my home. I graduated with a Master’s degree as an Urbanist, but I have worked for over 7 years in the luxury travel industry. I think taking people out of their comfort zones is a part of my brief.
Our tour operator is based in France, and the UK, so we can work in both countries and allow folks to discover le vrai France and have an authentic British Isles experience. Our background has been creating walking holidays and sharing the joy of eating half-board meals at mountain huts, or chic guesthouses!
