travel

We adore New Zealand and have delivered superb travel experiences to clients ‘in-bound’ to our amazing country.  

We’re equally excited to deliver experiences outside of New Zealand, and have been fortunate to work in some amazing locations around the globe.  

Three things are top of mind when we design group travel: 

  • Authenticity and keeping it real.
  • Working with others at the 'top of their game'.
  • A good dose of suprise and edge.

Serving Up Tora

Not too far from OneNineFive HQ in Wellington is a very special place called Tora, on the rugged and beautiful South Wairarapa coast.

'Serving Up Tora' is a collaboration between OneNineFive and The Tora Collective.

It's a sleeves rolled up experience, full of ocean aromas, drift wood fires, delicious local wines, the (very) freshest kaimoana, and an insight into an inspirational business that truely cares about our oceans. 

Our mates at Tora Collective are onto something really special.  You need to check out these great people because they do great things.  

They sustainably catch wild kaimoana from the nutrient-rich salt waters of Tora, and then ship it alive, straight from the ocean to people (you can order direct) and some of the greatest restaurants in this amazing country of ours.

We now want to share them with like-minded clients and friends, so we’ve created ‘Serving Up Melbourne with OneNineFive’.

'Off The Bench' | 2015

Every four years, what we think is the greatest sporting event on the planet comes along.  The Rugby World Cup.

In 2015 this event was held in England.  Along with celebrated New Zealand Chef, Al Brown, we had the idea to design and lead a totally unique travel experience to this global event.

Recognizing that sport results don’t always go the way you want them to, our 20 day tour was as much about culinary experiences as it was about watching both semi-finals, the bronze final and the grand final of Rugby World Cup 2015.

We chose 3 of the greatest culinary cities in the world as the key destinations for Off the Bench:  New York, London, Paris.

The Liu Family in NZ | 2017

New Zealand is a country where the expression 'something for everyone' is as true as it gets.  The Liu family discovered this on their customised 10 day New Zealand experience.

The Liu family has travelled widely from their home in Beijing, China and New Zealand was always on their list of places to visit. 

Like many of our clients, their travel needs to be authentic, accurate, high-quality, and combine a perfect blend of both individual and family experiences, which cater to the needs and interests of their children.  

Through our pre-trip communications, we developed a sense of the family and set about designing a New Zealand experience to meet their needs.
