Meet Michelle

Hi there!

I’m Michelle, owner and operator of Living the Dream Tours!

I am a Wanaka local of nearly 20 years and tour guiding and fine wine are two of my passions! For the past few years I have been lucky enough to take visitors on 2-3 week road trips all over New Zealand. I have also evaded many winter months and been a tour guide all over Canada and the Usa and specifically a wine tour guide in Napa, Sonoma and the Russian River in California. 

My tours are all about fun, wine tasting and sightseeing. I know so many local hidden gem wineries and winemakers who are excited to show you their craft. Let’s spend one day together enjoying each other's company over your glass of world class wine in beautiful Central Otago. Life’s too short to drink bad wine - I look forward to showing you a great time... and amazing wine. I’ve got heaps of local knowledge and can give you tips on activities you can’t miss while you’re in town or continuing on your NZ adventure. 

Cheers! Laughter and delicious wine awaits!
