Welcome to our team of worldwide travel and cruise specialists. My name is Janine Mallon and I started this business 10 years ago working from home, expanding to work in an office with a team over 5 years ago. My team and I all share a passion for travel whether it be domestic travel in this wonderful country of ours or international travel when the time is right again.
Our team includes travel and cruise specialists Jenny Galliven who comes with 25 years’ experience and Prachi Koli with over 10 years’ industry experience. We also have Office Manager Lauren Macshane and Administrative Assistant Erin Graham. I have over 18 years’ experience in the travel industry so together we have the knowledge and skills to help you design your dream holiday.
A love of languages cultivated through my teenage years, stoked a desire to travel and experience the world and I embarked on my first overseas trip, a student exchange to Germany at the age of 16. This adventure strengthened my desire for future travel and my journeys since have taken me all over the Globe!
After graduating from the University of Otago with a Double Bachelor’s Degree in Languages and Tourism Management, I began my career in the travel industry.
During my career I have opened two travel agencies and managed three teams for various companies. In 2010 I took on a bigger challenge and formed my own company – Tasty Tours. What started as a small business offering day tours around Dunedin and Otago has now grown to combine my greatest passions: Travel, food and wine. Shortly the new Tasty Tours website will launch which will showcase culinary and beverage travel experiences around the world.
From the wine valleys of South Australia to the incredible wildlife of Southern Africa and the Galapagos Islands, my travel experiences will offer you unique insights, tailored to suit your travel needs.
Every trip has a different purpose, perhaps something special you want to see or experience, and each adventure you embark on should be filled with so many memorable moments, you cannot pin point just one particular highlight.
My team is here to help you create those travel experiences unique and special to you and filled with memorable moments and highlights. We want to make your travel dreams a reality!
We believe that you have the right to plan your travel uninterrupted and where and when you want to. Whether that means meeting with one of the team in a café, at our office, in your home or simply communicating via phone and email, we will be happy to adapt to suit you.
We love helping you to arrange your travel and helping to make your dreams come alive.
By accessing great deals through reputable suppliers, we can assist with anything from flights and stopovers to cruises; tours; accommodation; trains and rental cars; sightseeing’ show tickets, including packaging everything together to design your unique holiday.
