Isobel Needham Guide at Contiki
Well hello there, its so nice of you to visit my profile page. Im a double lucky guide as i get to work for TWO great companies: Busabout in the northern hemisphere summer, and Contiki NZ in the southern hemisphere summer. GOOD TIMES!! I like onesies, flat top caps, tunes by biggie and orange fanta. I LOVE BMX bikes, rhyming couplets, learning new words and laughing til my face hurts, check out the madness on instagram @isothetourguide. If i were to win TourRadars Guide of the Year competition, well i'd be over the moon, but id be double lucky because my charity of choice is the raddest. Check them out at Livemoreawesome.com or on instagram @livemoreawesome. Peace out peeps, see you on the road!!
