Racing in the South Pacific

Racing in the South Pacific, October 2019

I've put this trip together with the help of several wonderful people. It's for people interested in horseracing.

I'm a horseracing fan and am leading this fabulous trip (it combines two of my major passions!) We have a fabulous itinerary, including a night at the Nocturne race meeting at Hippodrome Henri Milliard in Noumea.

I anticipate this will become a regular event in the Racehorse Owners Federation calendar!

Dates: 18th to 22nd October 2019

Maher Escorted Tours

If you're considering a group tour, check out Maher Escorted Tours. They specialise in tours for "mature travellers, young at heart".

I'm a Tour Leader with Maher Tours and led the tour to Russia & the Baltic States this year, which included a Danube Cruise (July/August 2019). It's a fantastic trip and will be run again in 2020.

Everything about these trips is organised to perfection, the itineraries are fabulous, the pace is leisurely, accommodation high quality and almost everything is included. Each trip is fully escorted so all you need to do is enjoy yourself!

The 2020 Tour Programme is out now with some fabulous new tours.
