As a founding directors of Pukekohe Travel 38 years ago and the 'tour maker' for about 30 of these, Jim and Eve started escorting tours right from the start.
Following the theme of ‘Off the beaten track,’ their most recent tours included Patagonia and Mongolia & Siberia.
“On reflection, from all our travels over the past 38 years, two standout for both of us.” One is a week in Fiordland and the other an outback cattle station tour from Darwin to Broome.
Grandchildren in London and Perth are clipping Eve’s wings, but she is still enjoys her involvement in the business and escorting tours.
Apart from still riding his bicycle, Jim enjoys seeking and creating new itineraries that expose travellers to sights and life not readily or easily available.
Even after many travels, the game parks of Africa rate as his favourite, along with Rarotonga as a holiday destination.
