​  Don't take it from us - 

Here are a few things our clients have to say ...


Sharon is more than simply a service provider in the travel industry.

Her personal touch and solution oriented approach sets her apart as a travel solutions partner. Under the difficult circumstances of the recently lifted travel restrictions, Sharon (Live Breathe Travel) was able to source cost effective travel solutions, secure tickets and provide advice that was otherwise unavailable.

We are grateful that Live Breathe understands the anxiety of travel and the risk that one often

feels when having to pay significant costs without necessarily understanding the fine print.

With Live Breathe Travel I was able to breathe easy in the knowledge that my travel arrangements are sound, without risk and at cissy effective rate.

Thank you Sharon and Live Breathe Travel.

Sharon at Live Breathe Travel is amazing ! 

I asked her to plan a surprise itinerary for my partner and myself at very short notice.

Normally at this time of year we would be somewhere in the South Pacific - due to Covid we where unable to do that - sucks !

We have just returned from the most AMAZING  trip to Queenstown. e got to stay at luxurious accommodation on the Lakefront - suite and views to die for, including exquisite cuisine, impeccable service, champagne helicopter flights  to the Remarkables and a second Heli trip which was spectacular. Topping it off with spa treatments with killer views.. WOW ! 

If you want a travel agent that knows their stuff - especially high end luxury travel - you just have to call Sharon and the team at Live Breathe Travel. 

They take care of everything in style and go the extra mile..

Thanks a bunch as always we will be back !

Live Breathe Travel transforms the often chaotic task of travelling into a simplistic job - taking care of all travel planning needs without comprise is best left to an expert and that’s what a travel agent should be. BUT more than that the team at Live Breathe Travel treat you like a friend - those spa travel arrangements are the best Investment in yourself.

Sharon is one of those special gems, brilliant at every angle, and has that unique and special quality that every girl wants (for example the ability to hook you up with that well-deserved trip abroad with family and friends or a "live, breathe, travel" experience with like minded women. Authentic leadership, trustworthy springs to mind. As a travel specialist she will listen to your travel needs and deliver. I recommend her as one of her clients and friend. Nga mihi

Over the last 4 years our family has gone to Live Breathe Travel not once, but twice to help in booking complex round-the-world itineraries. They always came up with practical and cost-effective options for us, which was a great help as we travelled with small children - getting the right mix of accommodation and flights could be tricky. We were very happy with our itineraries on both occasions and will definitely be asking Live Breathe Travel to look after us next time we get a chance to travel. We recommend their services with confidence.

Thanks Sharon for all your help arranging a number of flights for me over the last 2 years. I particularly would like to thank you for arranging my flight to the US at such short notice. The resulting flight was perfect, excellent times and seats. It took all the stress out of the journey. It couldn't have been done better.

Andrea Darroch 

Thanks for everything you have done to make this adventure happen. It seemed impossible to move a family to another country in only a week- you had to change our tickets every time work moved my deployment by a day. We scrambled to get four people on all the same flights and through all the phone calls, emails and freaking out, you were cheerful, calming and obliging! But the thing that really got me, while I sat on the flight, a little freaked about my new life in a new country, was when Nina's meal arrived. It was a kids meal. I hadn't even thought about it, but you had. A little detail that touched me right to the heart. Eternal thanks for all that you do for us. Much more than a travel agent.    

Meike and Family 

Thank you for organising our Fiji trip - it was incredible! Absolutely loved the resort and had a very relaxing time away. Looking forward to my next adventures you have booked- it really is a relief having such a fantastic agent on the job!

Alissa Bell - Partner - McVeagh Fleming Lawyers

The lovely Shaz helped plan our big OE trip of a lifetime in May this year. It was a very special time as we where meeting up with our two grown up sons and spending 5 weeks together. This was my first time to Europe even so at 49. I was super excited!

It was the most amazing trip ever making incredible memories from London to Spain then France Italy and Greece. Thank you for making this trip perfect in every way.

Can't wait to start planning the next one !  

Kaz Staples - Managing Director & Founder - Pure Delish 

Just got home after 3 weeks away in the USA, all booked by Sharon.

Made my life so much easier knowing everything was done professionally.... and as it was such a busy trip with Theme Parks, Themed Dinners, 3 different hotels and transfers prearranged everything went smoothly. The knowledge Sharon has of LA and Hawaii encouraged us to venture out to places we didn't know about and helped me shop so much we had to buy 3 more suitcases!!!

Thank you so much and we will be in contact for our next big adventure!

Simone, Lyndon and Family

We've just been to South America for two weeks to see our son compete in Rotax 2018 World Go Kart Championships.

Sharon organised all our travel which was no easy task as it was a group booking with us all going in different directions at different times.

She made the whole experience so easy from the start.
We absolutely adored the Belmond Hotel das Cataratas & Copacabana Palace.

So pleased she had stayed there and could recommend these to us first hand.. 

Sharon certainly know her hotels !

Everything was brilliant and even when the airline was planning a strike and threatening our travel Sharon was onto it with plan B!

We are so grateful for all the work she put in to planning our trip.

We would highly recommend Sharon when it comes to booking your travel plans.

Anna and Charles Whyte

Highly recommend Sharon! I was at home late one evening a few weeks ago and decided a week in Fiji would be nice. I messaged Sharon who was in Bali at the time and told her where I wanted to go and my budget. Less than 12 hours later I was on a plane to Fiji.
This was my first time travelling and it was such a great experience, especially given how stress free it was knowing Sharon had taken care of everything and was just a message away should anything happen. Thanks Sharon, you rock!

Tom Jay 

Highly recommend booking with  this agent! Sharon is so amazing! she found us a great deal for me and boys to travel around the world for my 40th!

The result was so perfect! A++++

Monica, Oliver and Jack Leach 

Hi Sharon, thank you so much for organising our trip to Thailand. Just got back today. It was absolutely amazing. Elephant Hills was incredible and my highlight. The Sands resort was absolutely lush! We had an incredible time.

Thanks so much for all of your effort. xx

Lisa and Clint Monk 

We have had the pleasure of dealing with Sharon @ Live Breathe Travel on several occasions.     One being a train journey adventure through Vietnam! She is a master at creating amazing itineraries and her attention to detail is second to none. We look forward to working with her again soon. Thanks again.

My wife and I met Sharon purely by chance at 5am one December morning at the Auckland International Airport whilst we were waiting for our family to arrive from the UK.  Sharon was waiting for her partner, arriving on the same flight. After some 15 minutes chatting we asked for her card. We went away impressed as Sharon obviously knew what she was talking about in terms of travel.

We misplaced her card soon enough when we booked our travel to the UK a few months later- to find it again after we had booked! She still came up with some options to compare with what we had booked – which would have saved us several hundred dollars on the same flights! 

Early into our planning for our 2020 trip to the UK, we contacted Sharon again who worked diligently coming up with a great range of options. So we booked with her. We don’t regret this decision at all.

Without any prompting from us she has been in touch several times lately about the dramatic impact of Covid 19 on our bookings. We are impressed and remain so as she must have heaps on her plate right now.  

Today she has contacted us again, unprompted to keep us abreast of the latest news from Air New Zealand.

We are very glad we chose to book through her as she continues to keep us up to date with developments each time giving very sound advice. We are in good hands!  Thanks Sharon -

Dave and Roz

Sharon, this must be a difficult time for you! Thank you for your professionalism and thoughtfulness to us your clients. I was panicking but you put me at ease with your knowledge of the industry.
Best of luck!


Sharon has been my travel agent over the past four years, organising all my work trips to North America and Europe.
She is extremely knowledgeable about destinations, the best places to stay and the easiest most seamless way to get there.
She has always given me good sound advice along the way, with her Irish humor thrown in - which has been delightful.
Even during this Covid-19 situation, she has remained positive and professional all the way through.
I highly recommend her services for anyone that is looking for a great travel agent!
