Sean Brooks

Travel Specialist

My passion for travel started when I was 23 years old. A fantastic year in Canada not only broadened my horizons, but made me want to help others achieve their travel goals. I have previously worked as a Tour Operator, sending school-aged children the length and breadth of the Americas and Europe on sports tours. Following this, I moved to New Zealand from London and have since been a Sports & Travel Specialist, firstly in Wellington and now in Auckland.

Darren Driver

Travel Specialist

Having been in the Travel Industry since I left school, I have a love of travel. The Spanish Islands, Northern Europe and the Baltic are some of my favourite destinations. Cruising is my passion, I spent a little over a year working on cruise ships and has been involved heavily within the Cruise industry for the past 6 years. I have a few stories to tell... Working on a cruise ship is awesome, and I loved every minute of it (maybe not every minute, after a 16 hour shift I would have had a different tune to my song). I remember some of the classic quotes / questions - 'What time do you get off the ship each evening?' 'How do you get home?' 'You live on-board the ship, oh how cool???' Darren loves to talk about his cruising adventures, and is waiting to help build your dream holiday.

Mondo Dunedin

My travel agent life began in 1969. Then the major travel to UK and Europe was by sea, so I have been selling berths on ships since then. The days of NAC as our domestic carrier before Air NZ took over. The coming of the 747 which saw the demise of the line voyages of all the major shipping companies.

My passion has always been sea voyaging and cruising, and of course now it also includes self drive canal boats, and river boats. River boat cruising in Europe, Asia and America.

I cover all the major cruise companies and if there is anywhere in the world that has a boat floating on it, then I can probably get you a cabin. Budget to 5 star there is always a cruise to suit your mood or budget.

Booking the correct cruise will see you get great value for your money and a very nice holiday.

My other great passion is rail travel, and I see this as good compliment to cruising as they both allow you space to relax and enjoy the travelling.

If being on water is not your thing then I also offer you land based holidays, coach touring and adventure style travel
