About Simon Hocking - 40 years of world travel experience.

"I have been in travel for over 40 year and owned my own travel company for 35. It was by chance in 1982 that I was the travel agent for the Motel association of New Zealand and their marketing tour to Singapore. We had over 200 on this tour. Following this I became very involved with Music tours as my two Sons played Brass instruments and I looked after many tours for Brass Bands’ across the country and overseas.

I have booked the likes of Woolston Brass , Dalewool Auckland Brass, Waitakere brass and Excelsior Brass from Brisbane on their Europe UK tours. I also have arranged tours for many schools from James Hargest in Invercargill through to Auckland Grammar and Epsom Girls in Auckland. These tours have been within New Zealand, to Australia, Pacific Islands, Hawaii, Asia, USA, and Europe /UK.

I not only work with Brass Bands, I also arrange tours for all sorts of music groups, Pipe Bands, Choirs, Jazz Bands and orchestras.

In addition to music and cultural tours, I have also arranged tours for diverse groups including an IT tour to the States, a maths tour to Europe, a horse racing tour to Singapore amongst others.

I have a passion for group tours and love working with all to ensure the tour is one they will remember for many years. I do not just arrange the flights and accommodation I also look after all the sightseeing, concert, festivals receptions and anything else that is needed. I am often called upon to escort tours as travel manager to look after the day to day activities for all.

I currently look after national and international travel arrangements for a number of school and also manage the travel, accommodation and activities for groups planning New Zealand wide tours. National Tours I have been involved with include:-

Over the years, I have built up a number of contacts and these are able to offer a range of different options that many others cannot achieve. I have contacts with most Music Festivals worldwide and book groups to the leis of World Project festival in Sydney, Brisbane, Hawaii and USA. I have had school choirs to the "Summa Cum Laude" Music festival in Europe. Nothing is a problem. For quotes, ideas, bookings I am only a phone call or email away.

Check out some tour ideas and Let the experience begin."
