Welcome future Roamers! 

My passion is travel and I feel extremely lucky to live and breathe my passion every day.  Bringing small groups of women together to explore and experience other cultures is so rewarding, and I love seeing new friendships bloom. 

I have been lucky enough to explore the World extensively and with that knowledge and experience I can design unique itineraries that appeal to females.  Over the years I have built up a valuable network of local guides in different countries and between us, we can create wonderful everlasting memories for our guests.

It has been a privilege to grow up in the South Island of New Zealand and now live in the North Island.  I have explored most nooks & crannies in this amazing country and love designing personalised itineraries for inbound visitors.  Email me your dream itinerary and I will make it happen.

I'm looking forward to meeting you soon!

Jan - Amberley, New Zealand

Can't speak highly enough of this travel experience. Marie is a relaxed yet super organised travel host; using excellent local guides and perfectly located comfortable accommodation. Marie ensured all the logistics well taken care of leaving us with not a care in the world; just the pleasure of enjoying a variety of carefully chosen experiences, beautiful places, some off the beaten track and always with our delight in mind. You will love it!

I would recommend doing the North Island trip and definitely value for money. Marie was very organised and adaptable if the weather hampered our activities. I would be very keen to do another tour with Roam. 
Dorothy - Lincoln, New Zealand

The excursions, transportation, and accommodations were well planned. Big thanks to Marie for her organisation and enthusiasm for making the trip stress free and lots of fun. I would definitely recommend this trip.    
Jackie - Christchurch, New Zealand

My first guided trip ever! Accommodation was good to excellent, driver and vehicle great, sightseeing good, Lou excellent, meals good overall and it was value for money. An afternoon or day off about midway would have given time to recharge batteries and do some washing. 
Maree - Ashburton, New Zealand

I went with Roam on an overnight to The Chateau with side events on the way. Marie had everything pre-organised so all we had to do was enjoy it, and I certainly did! I also bought an e-bike from her range and have loved the new experience. Looking forward to summer!
Audrey - Hamilton, New Zealand

I’m really looking forward to future adventures with Marie - she’s delightful, welcoming, inclusive, knowledgeable, fun, professional, and makes everything easy! Her trips are extremely well planned, and she gives very clear instructions regarding requirements and what to pack and bring. If anything is amiss, she sorts it. Fantastic!
Di - Whitianga, New Zealand

I travelled with Roam Travel Adventures on a European river cruise with a stay in Italy beforehand. Our travel host Marie found ways to make the trip both fulfilling and interesting. We were able to go truffle hunting with dogs in Italy and paragliding in Switzerland. Marie even biked with us in the rain in Amsterdam! I highly recommend travelling with Roam Travel Adventures.

I want to thank you very much for the wonderful trip you organised for us. I appreciate the amount of effort and planning that went into the itinerary. The seats for the WOW show, the accommodation and food were amazing. The van was very comfortable and your driving impeccable. I am more than happy to recommend you to friends.
Christine - Hamilton, NZ

This was such an enjoyable & interesting trip with great company all round & yes the scenery from Whanganui breath-taking, when one realizes that all the land was broken in years & years ago without the equipment that we have today.  Amazing.  It would appear Marie, that you are as good at photography as you are at driving – they are a great record, thank you for a wonderful break, it is good to recharge the batteries every now & then.
Gaylene, Cambridge, NZ

I've just completed my third trip away in NZ with the wonderful tour leader/driver/experience travel agent, Marie, this time in the Far North & Bay of Islands.  Such a great experience & highly recommended.  I have booked my next trip for later this year, Roam Italy & Adriatic Cruise.
Barbara - Cambridge, NZ

The six of us wanted to drop you a note and let you how know remarkable our trip to New Zealand was.  Without exception, we all had the greatest time and truly enjoyed seeing so many parts of your country.  The accommodations that you selected were excellent.  We would have liked to have more time in each place.  The tours, activities and suggestions that you made were right on target for what we wanted to do.  The rental cars were returned with no damage, so it was great all around!  Again, thank you for the excellent job that you did for us.  We enjoyed New Zealand immensely!  Kia Ora!
