Alexandra Stewart

T+L TOP TRAVEL ADVISOR | NEW ZEALAND SPECIALIST

Stewart, who lives in New Zealand, is a native Kiwi and lived in Australia for several years. Her in-depth local knowledge allows her to create informative, personal itineraries and suggest interesting alternatives to the most popular destinations to avoid the crowds. Instead of Queenstown and Rotorua, for instance, she may suggest Wellington and Hawke's Bay. Additionally, her company, Antipodean Luxury Travel, has access to stunning wilderness areas — for a recent father-son trip, Stewart was able to arrange private fly-fishing excursions on a sheep farm on New Zealand’s North Island. Another family trip on the South Island involved a personal rugby session for the family’s two sons (both big rugby fans) with Richie McCaw and Ben Blair — two of the most famous players in the country.

Other sporty endeavors that Stewart can arrange include swimming with dolphins and whales off Western Australia’s Coral Coast, and heli-skiing and hiking on New Zealand’s glaciers. She has also taken notice recently of travelers who want a greater connection to Maori and Aboriginal culture in the Antipodes, alongside more typical staples like visits to the Sydney Opera House and Hobbiton (the elaborate set of the Lord of the Rings movie trilogy, in Matamata on New Zealand’s North Island).
