The world’s your oyster - and if that’s the delicacy and specialty wanted, Hop Abroad would find it. Food, wine, history, archaeology and craft beer tours to name a few are just some of the exclusive deals put together by the Wellington travel broker. Hop Abroad founder Charmaine Hawke says assembling holidays around niche interests is an area she really enjoys.

“Finding the best venues, restaurants, festivals, sites and events, and marrying flights, accommodation and travel to optimise the experience is a fantastic challenge,” she says. “We love it too when our clients come back from specialty travel, and are still buzzing from what they’ve seen and done and tasted. For us that’s the sort of feedback which is a real bonus.”

Craft beer tours by an expert


Craft beer tours are a heart-felt passion for Hop Abroad (and part of the inspiration behind the company name. Charmaine’s well-versed in distinguishing her IPA’s from her APA’s, a wheat beer from a sour beer. She’s on a first name basis with Wellington’s craft beer brewers, and has extensive personal connections with many overseas craft beer makers. “Our craft beer tours appeal to those wanting a story as well as a taste,” she says. “I really am putting together a travel package that I’d be delighted to, and often have, gone on myself.” Hop Abroad specialty packages, like all its travel deals, includes insurance cover as comprehensive as a client wants.


The travel broker hasn’t yet had a special tour request they couldn’t fulfill. With 15 years travel knowledge, global contacts and an extensive network of people who know people, Hop Abroad’s ability to assemble bespoke travel packages is second-to-none.


“We love crazy requests,” she says. “And when clients come back raving about their special holiday it makes our day.”

Australia

It has been over 30 years since I last visited Perth, far too long between drinks I now realise. Needless to say the skyline of the city has changed in that time quite considerably and the resources boom is quite evident with many of the mining companies having the tallest buildings in the city. That said the skyline is not as dominated by tall buildings as many comparably sized cities worldwide.
