Donna Thomas

TRUSTED TRAVEL EXPERT New Zealand

Donna Thomas loves New Zealand with a passion and works with clients to create trips there that are tailored to their individual interests and preferences. In the 35 years she has been sending travelers to New Zealand, she has never replicated an itinerary. Donna has developed such close relationships with the country’s hoteliers that they treat her clients like family, offering extra attention, upgrades, and other perks. She arms all of her clients with an annotated atlas before they embark on their trips, and, in addition to Donna herself, a concierge and golf concierge are on call to answer questions, troubleshoot, and provide everything clients need to have a flawless trip. Donna was also included in Perrin’s People, Wendy’s award-winning list of top travel specialists, which was published annually in Condé Nast Traveler magazine from 2000 to 2013.
