Tasi Afitu Hill
I have been in the travel industry for more than 25 years, journeyed to over 65 countries, experienced hundreds of beautiful sights, met thousands of interesting personalities, eaten lots of amazing food and am proud and thankful that my passion and enthusiasm for travel only increases each day. I thrive on providing outstanding customer service and developing a rapport with my clients to ensure your trip is the best it can be... and invariably my clients also become part of my extended family.
My wanderlust for travel was ignited by the AFS exchange student programme at the age of 17 years to Quebec, not only was I fortunate enough to experience another culture but I met 150 other AFS students from all over the world sharing the same experience - learning, living & speaking French. This satiated my love of languages and I added French as my third language (English & Samoan). A few years later, I spent a year in Turkey working as a tour leader on the Fez Travel Hop on Hop off bus in 1997, one of the most memorable things I have ever experienced was attending the dawn service on ANZAC day at Gallipoli.
In 2016 I was very humbled to be voted one of three finalists in the national TAANZ Awards for Best Retail Consultant and decided then it was time for a career change to Travel Brokering.
All travel is exciting, no matter where the destination!
I look forward to hearing from you so that together, we can make your next trip hassle free and amazing!
Wanderlust - noun
1. A strong desire to travel.
Writing a short testimonial for Tasi is virtually impossible. How can I possibly describe the extraordinarily professional and warm service which Tasi has provided us over almost 20 years? From complex business travel arrangements to cruises to the ends of the Earth (literally!) to quick, routine cruises around Australia and New Zealand, Tasi’s knowledge of the travel industry and its products and more importantly, her recognition of our quirks and travel preferences, adds immeasurably to the joy of travel. When you find a travel agent who also becomes a great family friend, you know that you have found someone special.

I have had the pleasure of having Tasi as my travel agent for the past 10 years. Over this time she has consistently gone over and above dealing with any unexpected events, flight cancellations or delays caused by outside influences.
Tasi has provided myself and our family the utmost professional service with an amazingly personal approach. Accommodation, flights, sightseeing etc. have always been precisely what we have asked for. Tasi takes her dealings with you the extra step which make our travel easy and fun. I have recommended many friends and family to Tasi over the years and they have all chosen to deal with her for the very same reasons outlined above. I hope this gives you a clear picture of what an amazing person Tasi is to deal with.

Tasi has provided our family with amazing service during the past 2 years. We were very fortunate in 2015 to embark on a 6 week trip on what my children still refer to as “our amazing world trip”. I needed our trip to be organized and Tasi did this for us. She started from scratch and made sure that everyone’s needs, wants and travel desires were met.
She was very careful to consult us about our costs and budget and was resourceful, a problem solver & nothing was a problem. She is friendly, caring & kind and always made sure that the children’s needs were identified and met, ensuring their safety. She celebrated their joy in their experiences along the way and regardless of the time differences, I felt confident Tasi had our back when travelling. Tasi text me often, ensuring the accommodation was to our liking, thought ahead, checked us in early and made sure our visas were in order. She was thorough with communication & documentation and we were completely at ease always.
