Tanya Saul – Independent Consultant with The Enchanted Traveler
Specialty: South Pacific, Australia, New Zealand
Imagine this: You’re walking through the Outback near Uluru, and kangaroos hop by in the distance. You’re on a 30 passenger boat in New Zealand’s Fiordland as a pod of dolphins join alongside you. You’re sipping Mai Tais on your private overwater bungalow in Tahiti, feet dangling over the side and watching the tropical fish below.
Maybe you’ve spent years dreaming of that family trip to Hawaii, or maybe you’ve spent a week pondering the possibility of doing a family cruise around New Zealand. I can make all those dreams come true, and more!
I spent a year and a half living in Australia and two years in New Zealand, covering both countries top to bottom and nearly everywhere in between. While living overseas, I also grabbed at the opportunity to visit the islands of Fiji, Samoa, and the Cook Islands. Don’t even get me started on how many times I’ve been to Hawaii – on family trips, solo trips, and trips with girlfriends!
I’m here to help you plan amazing vacations to some really phenomenal destinations. Whether you’re looking at planning the perfect tropical honeymoon, or the romantic anniversary trip, or the action packed tour for the adventure enthusiast, I’ll make sure you get the trip you desire.
Planning any trip can take hundreds of hours of research. What hotels are good? What cities should we see? When’s the best time of year for weather? What are the off the beaten path must sees? Should we rent a car or take a tour? Through our planning process, I’ll make sure to answer all of these questions and tailor your itinerary to the types of hotels, places, and activities that you like – allowing you more time to relax and destress. And let’s be honest, that’s what vacation is all about, right? (Unless of course you want it to be action packed!)
I specialize in trips to the following locations:
• Cook Islands
• New Zealand
South Pacific Packages
Working with a selection of specially curated resorts that I trust to create the best possible experiences for my clients, I work with you to find your perfect match among our top tier resorts. My process begins with a one on one phone consultation to learn more about your ideal vacation experience. Then I select the best vacation components to present to you. Once your preferred package has been selected from the carefully chosen options, I will take care of all the arrangements on your behalf. Flights, transfers, resort, and activity reservations will all be arranged. Our first phone consultation is complimentary. Post consultation, I begin my work with a $100 planning fee prior to selecting and presenting your best options.
