 Our Team

Melanie Grigoratos

I was born and raised in the beautiful country of Rhodesia, now Zimbabwe, and lived in South Africa for a number of years before immigrating to Australia 9 years ago. My passion for travel began many years ago in the airline industry, where I worked for several years before joining a tour operating agency specialising in tours to Southern and East Africa.  After moving to Australia, and settling in Perth, I worked for an Africa wholesale company for a few years before joining the retail travel sector. I am an absolute travel enthusiast through and through and I drive immense pleasure in arranging travel plans for my clients, discovering their passions, their wants and needs and then designing the perfect holiday that is suited to their need because their happiness is my happiness!

Julie Maina

Handcrafted from the finest New Zealand stock, and have been sowing my seeds in the wonderful land of Oz for the past 17 years.  Travel is in my blood and I developed the wanderlust in my early twenties when I was fortunate enough to have travelled to over 60 countries around the world where I had the most amazing experiences and where I gained valuable and vast knowledge of  UK, Europe, Asia, South and North America and Africa. I am passionate about sharing my travel knowledge, expertise and experiences with my clients and nothing pleases me more than hearing about their experiences when they get back from a happy holiday.
