Euro Guiding Services is a New Zealand based company specialising in foreign language tour-guiding and tour-driving for small groups, VIP and special interest tours throughout New Zealand, Australia and the Pacific Islands.
My name is Andrea Hudson, I am the owner-operator of Euro Guiding Services and am an experienced travel professional with over 30 years experience in New Zealand. I conduct tours in English, German and French language and offer interpreting services.
My story: I left my native Germany as a teenager to study Hotel Management in Switzerland. Afterwards, I joined the airline industry and travelled the world extensively.
In the early 80's I was based in the Maldives for the airline and fell in love with the country. This is when I started my career as a Divemaster and Tour Guide living and working there for 5 years.
In the mid 80's I moved to Australia and finally to New Zealand. I joined the airline industry again, working for the national airline Air New Zealand until 2006 when I started my own company: Euro Guiding Services.
Since then I have conducted tours throughout New Zealand (incl. Stewart Island) as a guide on large coaches as well as driver-guiding in limousines, SUV's, and mini-buses up to 20 seat capacity.
Most of the tours I lead are 'nature tours' with a lot of outdoor aspects, including fauna and flora recognition, hiking, boating and observation of indigenous culture.
My love for New Zealand and it's people is reflected in my guiding style and I love to connect with people from all over the world and show them this beautiful country.
Of course I have all the necessary certificates and licences too, such as current First Aid, P-endorsement, d/l class 1 and 2, ATTTO Certificate in Tourism (Tour Leadership Level 4) and emergency procedure training.
