Kia Ora!

New Zealand is a country perhaps best known to some as Middle Earth, but it offers visitors so much more. Did you know New Zealand offers a unique mix of captivating natural attractions and unusual wildlife? Did you know the legendary town of Quennsland is known as the Adventure Capital of the World? 

New Zealand is relatively small in size, meaning that once you arrive, you can travel across the entire country during one visit, see multiple regions and enjoy a domestic air network that is very easy to navigate. New Zealand’s relatively small size also makes it a perfect self-drive adventure destination.

As an Pure New Zealand Gold Specialist I have the experience to help you plan and book every detail of your vacation. In order to be an expert on everything New Zealand, I have receive extensive training from Tourism New Zealand and traveled throughout the country. I have the experience to help you plan and book your adventure.

The stunning landscapes and friendly locals of New Zealand are closer than you think.

Our 10 Year Anniversary - A trip to remember!!

Reviewed By Ashley and Eric - Leander, TX | Traveled to Dominican Republic ~ Caribbean
My husband and I met Skip 10 years ago when planning our Honeymoon to St. Lucia. We've planned many other trips with Skip (DR, Jamaica, Mexico), took a small break from traveling to grow our family, but immediately thought "SKIP" when it was time to plan our 10 year anniversary trip. He is extremely personable and such a pleasure to work with. He sincerely cares about his clients and wants to create the best experience!! Skip is organized, a good listener and puts together many options for consideration (he really goes above and beyond expectations and makes the experience super easy and stress-free.) For this specific trip, we chose DR (for a second time) prior to all the media hype. Skip was fantastic to answer our questions/concerns and provided secondary options to ensure our comfort level and safety. Skip will always be our go-to-guru!! #TeamSkip

Saved Mom and Dad’s 50th Anniversary Trip!

Reviewed By Ginger - Austin, TX | Traveled to New Zealand ~ Australia & New Zealand
Skip just made my parents the happiest travelers on earth. He sent them to New Zealand, but what was more amazing, he rescued their trip after Dad’s accident.

Mom and Dad have been married 51 years. Last year, they planned to take a 50th anniversary trip to New Zealand. But two months before they left, Dad fell and injured his head badly. They were heartbroken, but they knew New Zealand would have to be cancelled.

I made one phone call to Skip. He picked up everything from there. He made the calls, found the trio insurance, cancelled the reservations, and refunded them everything.

This year, Dad is better. They called Skip again and asked if they could do their dream vacation now. He had saved it, of course! They traveled to New Zealand in October and came back delighted.

WORLDS BEST HONEYMOON

Reviewed By Tara - Houston, tx | Traveled to Mexico
We were referred to skip by a friend, who had great things to say. Skip was incredibly helpful, responsive and friendly. We wanted a quiet romantic spot for a honeymoon. He guided us and worked with us to get exactly what we wanted within our budget! I am telling you this trip was magnificent. I was not ready to leave. We stayed at el darado in the over the water bungalows in Mexico! The service and staff was phenomenal, it was quiet, secluded and romantic. 10/10 would go again and I am definitely using him to plan our one year anniversary trip!

Yet Another Amazing Vacation

Reviewed By lizz - Austin, Texas | Traveled to Europe
I first reached out to Skip to plan our honeymoon in 2018. I had never used a travel adviser before but I was worn out with planning a wedding so I left it in the hands on Skip- & it would't have it any other way. He is easy and accommodating to work with regarding travel. My Honeymoon had adventure and luxury as we had explained we wanted. We did Amsterdam, Rome, and Santorini. All locations had travel, car services (seriously amazing) and activities planned for us. The great thing is that when you see something you want changed- he does it in a heartbeat and keeps constant communication. We came back with lots of great experiences, & all within budget.

Fast Forward to this year, we were in the midst of planning a second vacation across the pond and I didn't even think twice about it- I knew who I would call- Skip,

Yet another great vacation- this time we simply wanted luxury and relaxation and that is what we got in the Almafi Coast + Mykonos. He planned it just right.

USE SKIP FOR YOUR TRAVEL NEEDS!

Reviewed By Rea - San Antonio, Texas | Traveled to Maui Island ~ Hawaii ~ USA
I highly recommend Skip! He's the best. He helped us plan our honeymoon, a trip to Jamaica, and more recently, a trip to Maui. We will continue to work with him for years to come. From the beginning, he takes the time to get to know his clients and suggests vacations based on your interests and desires. He never speaks to you in a condescending manner, and is just so upbeat and friendly. Once you book your trip, he keeps you informed up to the date that you leave, and he prepares a vacation packet for you that includes all of your papers in an nice pouch. This is great because you just grab that pouch and you have all the important documents handy when you need it. More than that, Skip is just an awesome guy! He is easy to talk to and is always accessible to his clients. Trust me. No vacations are perfect (flights get cancelled/luggage gets lost) but Skip is always just a phone call or text away. He does everything to ensure you have a great time.

Best Honeymoon Ever!

Reviewed By The Brewers - Austin, TX | Traveled to Bora Bora ~ French Polynesia ~ South Pacific
Skip did a wonderful job choosing flights and the best hotel in our price band for the honeymoon of our dreams in Bora Bora. We spent 5 nights in the most gorgeous hotel on a private island and our room had breathtaking views. He made it very easy for us to have plenty of time to catch our flights and people waiting to show us where to go. Planning a honeymoon on top of a wedding would have been so stressful and he took out all the hard parts for us and made it the best trip of our lives. The next time we are going out of the country we will definitely use Skip again!

Our dream honeymoon

Reviewed By Kelly - San Antonio, TX | Traveled to French Polynesia ~ South Pacific
Skip was amazing to work with! We just got back from our honeymoon and had the greatest time. We never once had to stress about travel plans or organizing anything which was so helpful because with the wedding a lot went into planning so knowing our trip was handled was such a relief. Thank you Skip for making our dream trip to Moorea and Bora Bora a trip of a lifetime! We are looking forward to working with you in the future!

FIRST CLASS, Simply the BEST!

Reviewed By Dr.D - Austin, Texas | Traveled to Mexico
First of all there are NOT enough stars possible to truly rate Skip and Honeymoon Guru!! I booked my first trip with Skip over 10 years ago and can remember how great the experience was like it was yesterday. The reason I can remember how great it was is because Ive continued to use Skip for ALL my vacations ever since!!! He is simply FIRST CLASS! He spares no details while planning each of our getaways. He takes ALL the stresses ( flights, transfers, excursions, meals) of planning away. Skip is hands down the best of the best all the while offering a truly white glove kind of experience. If you are even thinking about traveling with your spouse, significant other, or family let Skip help in getting your trip planned! You WILL NOT regret your decision and I’ll promise you that you and your family will use him for every trip after that, as we have for over the last decade! Skip you are THE BEST!!!

Incredible Honeymoon!

Reviewed By Megan - Austin, TX | Traveled to Riviera Maya ~ Quintana Roo ~ Mexico
Skip was so easy to work with from the beginning! He was super responsive and tolerated a million questions. He gave us 5 or so options for 4 different areas of the Caribbean to honeymoon in. We were so thankful he was there to do that for us, it truly took the stress from having to plan a honeymoon ourselves. The trip (6 days/5 nights at Secrets Maroma) went off with out a hitch and we enjoyed every second.

15 year Anniversary Trip

Reviewed By Monica - Round Roc | Traveled to St. Lucia ~ Caribbean
We had a great time! We did three excursions and made wonderful memories! Thank you so much for all of your help!

Oh and we definitely stayed one of the nicest resorts on the island. We saw a couple of the resorts while picking people of for the excursions and they were definitely not as nice as ours. We did get duped into sitting in and listening to the resort try to sell us their diamond package. When we tried to leave we got major attitude and we just ended up walking out. Lesson learned! Ha!

Anyway, we spent a ton of time in the pools, everything was super clean, we kayaked, we snorkeled, we took a stinky mud bath which was a blast, and saw the beauty of St Lucia on two cruises. It was perfect!

Amazing Great Barrier Reef Trip

Reviewed By Sandi - Austin, Texas | Traveled to Fitzroy Island ~ Australia ~ Australia & New Zealand
Oh my gosh, this trip is one that my whole family will remember for their lifetime! Our beach cabin was in front of the main part of the resort and we had the most amazing view every second of the day. To be able to lie in bed and see the ocean and hear the coral tinkling on the beach mere meters from us was incredible. We were able to grab our snorkel gear and walk straight out and see and swim with the most amazing things. We would also walk over to Nudey Beach and that was even more incredible. My brain couldn’t process what it was seeing.
The reef trip with Sunlover Reef Cruises was incredible too. We did the Intro to Scuba Diving and then straight away did the Guided Snorkel Tour and they made sure food was kept aside for us, that we were in the right spot at the right time and was so informative. Seriously, this was the best vacation. Thank you so much for organizing our trip for us. We are very grateful and will be contacting you again for our next one!

Skip Neal responded:

Very grateful to have you as a wonderful client. Skip Neal, M.Ed

Another exceptional trip using Skip!

Reviewed By Mark - The Woodlands | Traveled to Bora Bora ~ French Polynesia ~ South Pacific
Just got back with my third trip (our honeymoon and two subsequent vacations) with Skip. He has a passion for what he does and is exceptional in all aspects on how he runs his business.

As I have said before, while the internet has changed the travel industry and there is more ability to do it yourself, Skip is invaluable with his experiences and suggestions. Furthermore, the packages he has put together for us have always been less expensive to go with than if we were to do it ourselves and they include more!

Do not hesitate to book your vacation through Skip. You will be happy you did!
