About BEYOND Personal Travel Companion Service


Sally Blyth, PTC

Hi, I'm Sally Blyth and I set up Beyond PTCS to help people travel without stress and with as much love as I have for it. I've always been a globetrotter, alongside a diverse professional career in New Zealand and UK/Europe. I've worked in a variety of fields including health & disability, organisational change, conferences/events, writing/editing, creativity, property and travel.

With pleasure and purpose, I have loved visiting and exploring near and far since I was young. There are very few places within New Zealand that I have not been to. Further afield, I have travelled to the familiar, the famous, the remote and the lesser-known. I lived in London for ten years during the 1980s and have travelled extensively throughout the UK, Europe and beyond, for work and leisure.

I am a group Tour Leader (for Maher Escorted Tours), freelance travel writer, artist, designer, facilitator, administrator and long-time committee person. The world continually keeps me inspired. I am a self-confessed Europhile and a Kiwi at heart. I love a challenge and welcome new experiences. People and travel are my passions.

I have two adult sons. My husband and I married in 2017 after 25 years together!

I'd love to accompany you and ensure you have the time of your life! I can show you the places I've been - or we can discover new destinations together!

  • 40+ years of travel
  • 40+ countries visited
  • 40+ airlines flown
  • 40+ ski resorts enjoyed

About Kim: Hi, my name is Kim Hamilton. For the past 22 years I have been a passionate mother to four now teenage/adult children. We have travelled extensively as a family exploring new and interesting places especially in Europe. I enjoy people's company and conversation. I love to read, create colourful home interiors, visit art galleries, share and create delicious meals, look at gardens, observe and hang out with people of all ages. I am organised, efficient, practical and resilient and am very good at calmly multi-tasking.
