Solo Kiwi Ventures - testimonials

I loved this trip to Rarotonga.  It was my first overseas trip since lockdown finished.  I thoroughly enjoyed meeting a group of women who have had very different life experiences from each other and yet finding common ground on some level regardless. I was awed by many of their stories and grateful for the support of the group.  Sharon was a great host and sorted out all my techno stuff for me which was very much appreciated.

Thank you very much for this amazing experience.

I had an incredible time on my trip to Bali and Gili islands…Solo Kiwi Venture’s owner and host, Sharon, catered to the needs and desires of all attendees on the trip. I thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of the trip from the company, the culture, and the activities to the stunning villas in which we stayed. Sharon created an exciting itinerary where all participants could choose which activities to engage in. I was hesitant to join the snorkeling activity due to my limited swimming skills, however, with Sharon’s encouragement I ended up having the adventure of a lifetime. Sharon even went so far as to track down and arrange for the delivery of a treasured ring forgotten and left behind in the safe of one of the fabulous villas for a participant in our group. I feel fortunate to have happened upon this experience and would definitely recommend.


I did the Rarotonga trip with Sharon of Solo Kiwi Ventures in May 23.
Totally worth doing, well organized, lots of daily activities to choose from, great accommodation and made 10 new friends.
Loved how you had the flexibility to do as much with the group as you wanted or your own thing.
I recommend the swimming with the turtles and mud buggys.
Not that great a snorkler but Sharon made sure I had the support to enjoy the activity with the rest of the group.
Have also booked her Bali and Gili trip in June

“Fantastic experience that exceeded my expectations”

From totally getting out of my comfort zone in Bali and snorkelling with Manta Rays next to the island paradise of Nusa Lembongan, to the shopping (and learning how to barter with the locals in Seminyak), everything in between was amazing.

This was my first overseas holiday in years and it was for my birthday and I wanted to have the holiday of a lifetime!

Sharon was an excellent hostess who showed me all the sights I wanted to see in my own time.  I liked that we could plan our days as we wanted so there was lots of flexibility without the pressure of having every minute of the day accounted for.

Sharon involved me in the daily planning and showed me some hidden secrets about how to best organize a trip.  I knew that if I ever wanted to do a solo trip I would be able to do so safely and with confidence.

Thank you for sharing your knowledge and enthusiasm with me.

Pauline - Bali, Jan 2019

Just came back from a ten-day trip to Bali with my host Sharon, who was SO easy to get on with, and had arranged excellent accommodation and itinerary, etc. It was a full-on time, as we stayed in three different locations, and split our time between Seminyak,  Nusa Lembongan, and Ubud.   Each place had different qualities, beautiful people, and attractions. I was outside my comfort zone at times, but survived being on the back of a Go-Jek in crazy traffic, walking along wobbly jetties, etc, and being hassled by merchandise sellers!

Seriously, I had an absolute blast, and time went too quickly!!

Bali and its people are amazing, and Sharon did a marvelous job of coordinating everything, and showing me around
