International travel has featured high on our agenda for several decades now. In between kids and grandkids and publishing the family magazine Grapevine (which we established back in 1981), we’ve been privileged to visit many stunning destinations: Europe, the UK, Singapore, Vanuatu, the USA, Israel, Egypt, Africa (Kenya & Tanzania), China, Laos-Cambodia-Vietnam, the Mediterranean, the Baltic, India, China, Japan, South America, Canada, Alaska. And somehow, amongst all this rushing-around, we launched Midlife Madness Tours.

Travel, we’ve discovered, is an all-five-senses experience – a chance to see, feel, smell, hear and taste the world. And you’ve got to believe us: sightseeing as a group of laid-back Kiwis is DOUBLE the fun! We hesitate to call ourselves ‘experts’ – but we relish the chance to explore new countries, cultures and customs … we’re at-home in airports, hotels, cruise ships, and the like … and we know how to make the most of a unique travel opportunity. Our next tour can’t come quick enough – lots of laughs, great company, and memories that will last forever. Here’s hoping YOU will join us!
