About Me

I have worked in retail travel here in Christchurch for over 20 years, it’s an industry I have a real passion for! There is nothing I enjoy more than guiding my clients through the travel planning process and turning their travel dreams to reality.

It will be hard to write only a few lines on what we think about Maria, there are just so many good qualities to mention.

My husband and I were recommended Maria with regards to helping us organise our trip to Perth and Sydney in October this year and Canada at the end of the year.

Maria has gone above and beyond in helping us organise our travel.  She has given us ideas for activities and accommodation with various pricing options along the way.  If we mention an activity of interest for our trip we only need to contact Maria who will then do the research for us and even come up with other options and ideas to give us a choice.     Maria is efficient, thorough, thoughtful of trying to get us the best deal for our travel and mindful of our budget options.  Maria has great qualities as a person, her communication skills and attention to detail are outstanding.  We will never again book travel in the future unless it involves Maria.

Marianne

It makes such a difference to my travel experiences to have Maria prepare my plans.
I know all of the paperwork such as visas, hotel bookings, insurance cover and of course flight bookings ,are all correct. I go confident everything is in order. All I have to do is have a great time.

Maria gives particular attention to all the minute details which could easily be overlooked and ruin a holiday. I value her input greatly.

Wanting to travel, then I recommend Maria Leung. My husband & I first approached Maria at a Travel Expo back in 2013, since then Maria has taken care of all our travel arrangements.

Maria is very pleasant,  passionate and efficient at her job, nothing is a problem and goes out of her way to make sure your holiday is enjoyable. The biggest plus for us as a very busy working couple is that Maria as a travel broker always came to us to discuss our travel arrangements.  I have no hesitation in recommending Maria to anyone who is looking at traveling in the future.
