Thomas loves introducing clients to this region, and her annual visits mean she knows Australia and New Zealand inside and out. In Australia, she can arrange an after-dark wildlife encounter where you’ll view eastern quoll and other Tasmanian native species in their natural habitat. In New Zealand, Thomas highlights the country’s many climates by organizing activities like mountain biking in the Southern Alps, farm visits in the Marlborough wine region, and hot springs and mud pools around Rotorua and the Bay of Plenty.
For those interested in visiting both nations, Thomas also has extensive experience in combination itineraries that take in Great Barrier Reef islands, Sydney’s best neighborhoods, dolphin-spotting on New Zealand’s subtropical coasts, and South Island wine country—all in one trip. Clients also appreciate her personal touch. She checks in often and is on call to handle any unforeseen travel hiccups.
"We used Donna to plan a month-long trip to New Zealand. She was amazing — so thoughtful and generous with her time up front. She got to know us and our interests before planning every detail of the trip in a careful and meticulous way (and the logistics were relatively complicated). My husband and I are quite well traveled (we have been to all 7 continents) and we are quite particular. We absolutely loved every place, activity, and guide Donna organized for us. It was truly an incredible trip, and we would recommend Donna without reservation." - Gaby & Arthur Sulzburger
