Hi, I'm Sue - the company's Founder and Chief Explorer. Having spent years in various office-bound roles, I decided it was time for a change.
So with Welcome Tours I fixed some cravings and harked back to my tourism roots.
As Chief Explorer at Welcome Tours I have lots of opportunity to learn about New Zealand culture and heritage, I take time to seek out the extraordinary and to see beauty in the ordinary, and I bring enjoyment to peoples' lives. Perfect!
