Meet The Team

Our dedicated Team

We love our country and we want to show it to you...

Pete Salvesen - Managing Director

I am what some may some consider to be a "Kilted Kiwi". I was born and raised in the UK and moved to New Zealand with my family at the age of 15. I have lived and worked in the hospitality and tourism scene for more than a decade which has lead me to completely fall in love with New Zealand. This has allowed me to develop an almost unrivalled passion for New Zealand. I am so proud to call it home. 

We are a country of pure natural beauty, wide open spaces, full of beautiful native bush, sky scraping mountains, crystal clear lakes and rivers, wild wilderness and a variety of small towns to large cities, well large by New Zealand standards, which are of course full of our beautiful people.

I want to share my love and passion with you. I have always been interested in holidays and travelling but when it comes to traversing this country there is always so much more to the place than you realise. All you need to do is dream and I’ll do the rest for you. I have very high personal standards and have selected the finest accommodation suited to your budget, the best and most worthwhile attractions and activities to ensure you get the best with the time that you have. I recommend the best restaurants but also show you the very best of local New Zealand that is the cornerstone to the culture of our country.

I am passionate about creating the best holidays and doing all the hard work for you with organising your trip.  If you are thinking or planning a holiday to or in New Zealand, pick up the phone, give me a call or send me an email or an online message and I’ll get in touch and do all the necessary work for you. I look forward to welcoming you to our company.

Dianna Koorey - Admin & Customer Support

Customer / Admin Support
I am a born and bred Cantabrian with a background in hospitality, customer service, and in
recent years Tourism. I love meeting people and showing off this wonderful country that we call
home. Although in my spare time, you will likely find me in the kitchen practicing my baking and
cake decorating skills, with a small glass of wine waiting to celebrate my latest creation.

New Zealand is such a stunning country and I have been fortunate enough to see most of it.
And while I have also travelled to many different parts of the world, I still look forward to
revisiting the unique towns and cities, exploring the beautiful landscapes and enjoying the
stunning scenery here in New Zealand. I also look forward to visiting and learning about the few
places here that I haven’t yet seen.

I am delighted to be part of Endeavour NZ Itinerary Specialists. We can show you the best of
New Zealand, and I look forward to supporting Pete and his dedicated team in creating a unique
experience for you.
