Your Tour Guide in New Zealand

Kia Ora!

My name is Valeria, and I am a professional tour guide and driver based in Auckland. I will be more than happy to show you the best country in the world – New Zealand – and I guarantee you will fall in love with it as I have. I have been arranging tours of Aotearoa since 2011. I know the country, its history, culture, and traditions very well, and I will show you the hidden gems and guide you off the beaten track.

For your peace of mind, here are a couple of formal words about my education and licenses. I graduated from Auckland University of Technology with a Postgraduate Diploma in International Tourism Management in December 2016. My first degree was in political science, and I have a background in public relations. I have a Passenger Endorsement from the New Zealand Transport Agency. My company, JustGoThere Ltd, has a Large Passenger Service Licence (0318751) and a Small Passenger Service Licence (0318752). It is a member of the New Zealand Bus and Coach Association, which gives us the right to bring passengers to the country's national parks. So, we meet all the legal requirements applicable to a tour guide business. If you have any questions or need any further information, please do not hesitate to contact me via this website.

Why should you use my services?


1. I am the owner of JustGoThere Ltd travel agency officially registered in New Zealand (NZBN 9429046728197).

8. Self-guided tours: If you prefer to travel without a guide I will arrange your self-drive tour of the country and will be in touch by phone during your trip to solve any issues.

9. Business: I can implement your business projects, such as the Live Parallel Scientific Expedition, which visited New Zealand in March 2019 to conduct interviews with key figures in New Zealand politics, economics, culture, and religion. I arranged these meetings as well as a tour of New Zealand for the expedition's members.
