About Me

Hi, I’m Sarah, your Personal Travel Manager.

I have been in the travel industry for 28 years and I became a travel manager so that I can offer you a personalized service.  At the moment it is a strange world we are living in, masks,  restrictions, tests and very limited travel options.  BUT saying all this it is a still a beautiful world and we want to see it.

So if you would like to discuss current available options please do not hesitate to contact me.   As a travel manager we are up to date with all the Covid movements.  On top of the world is always New Zealand and the beauty that it offers!

To start planning your next trip, you can email me at or call me on 021503234.


Helping you plan your holiday is what I love to do. Offering suggestions you may not have considered.  Travel is a true passion and I love every minute!

What I can provide for you?

  • Expert Travel advice – saving you time and money!
  • Attention to detail… I would treat it like my own trip
  • A passion for Family Travel
  • Competitive pricing

Winis & John

We have recently returned from the most wonderful 3-week trip across Canada.  This comprised of two rail trips and four coach trips with various connections and accommodations all superbly coordinated by Sarah.  We would wholeheartedly recommend Sarah for Seamless, worry free travel and wish her much success

Merilyn & Shana

Having never travel overseas before, Sarah recommended we travel via Back Road tours among many other rail and flight arrangements.   Sarah is very professional, friendly and efficient.  We would certainly use her services again
