‘Notable Tours’, has been a natural progression from the annual pilgrimages to Norfolk Island we have made over the last few years. Many of those who accompanied us on these trips have expressed an interest in other destinations that combine travel and music, and with overseas travel severely limited at the moment, we thought the time was right for us to organise some package tours to a few select local destinations. Kirsten came up with the catchy ‘Notable Tours’ name and the idea for the logo, which our clever friend Ange Glindemann polished into the one you see on this site.
We hosted our first Notable Tour to Martinborough in November 2020, and quickly realised we needed some help on the ground! Luckily our mates Mel and Geoff Warwick were on the tour and didn’t mind stepping in to give us a hand. The four of us formed a partnership soon after that, and took 45 intrepid souls to Whanganui in February 2021, followed up by a three day sojourn in beautiful Hawkes Bay. Since then we have conducted sold-out tours to Kapiti, Taupo, Nelson and the Manawatu, and have Taranaki and the South Island’s West Coast in our sights.
