Peter Roddam

Director

Travel has always played a major part of Peters life. He left England to take up his first overseas role in Bahrain within Hospitality and Tourism. Once on the ‘Tourism Industry’ conveyor belt, Peter, (like the rest of the YOURTravel & YOURTours team), hasn’t stepped off since.  Peter met his Kiwi wife Tanya overseas, and together they worked and travelled in Europe and Arabia before returning to Australasia and finally fulfilling their dream of running their own outbound travel and tours business here in Kapiti.

Peter has attained his certification award as an International Tour Director with the International Tour Manager Institute in America, and has also been awarded the Fellowship of the Institute of Hospitality for his service and contribution to the Industry.  

 

His days are now spent researching and developing our very own and admittedly very special intimate range of small group tours, and if you are lucky, he may even be joining you on a few of them.
