Meet The Team
I am originally from UK, and I immersed myself fully into NZ life after settling down in Dunedin in 2005 where I studied Geography, History and Maori at University of Otago.
I gained my broad knowledge of wildlife and nature of the area while working for a number of local tour companies and reserves in Dunedin over the past 10 years.
You will be enriched on the tour with me as I love sharing my wide knowledge of local history, my passion for the country, love for its various inhabitants within all my tours.
I am originally from Lithuania but have lived overseas for many years.
About 10 years ago, I moved to Dunedin with my husband and 2 sons, and I have been working in the tourism industry ever since I came.
After a few of years working as a travel consultant I realised I wanted to be more connected with tourists and now I am excited to be a Tour Guide and to share the beauty of Dunedin with travellers from all over the world.
I'm passionate about the outdoors, and in my free time, I go for day-walks, exploring wildlife and nature. I do most of my touring in Dunedin, Coastal Otago.
I look forward to meeting you and showing you the best spots of Dunedin - Edinburgh of South - Otepoti!
When people ask what to expect about a tour with Julie, I will tell you "it's fun, memorable and inclusive oh, and did I mention fun?!"
I have spent more than 15 years teaching business and my wide range of knowledge of NZ and Dunedin, is second to none. I have lived and worked in several countries and love meeting people from all nationalities and walks of life.
