Top operators often meet the ideal holiday experiences, therefore we partner with Insight Vacations, Trafalgar, Peregrine Adventures and Pandaw River Cruises. A fantastic range of experiences to explore this beautiful Earth.
Yes, indeed we do offer journeys to both polar regions, which even includes an Ice Breaker cruise to the North Pole, an itinerary that starts in Helsinki and would surely be a true journey of a lifetime.
Aside from those extremes, we cover all destinations in between that offer great traveling experiences, from the more familiar regions of Europe and Canada/Alaska, through the developing spots of Burma, Cambodia, Vietnam and India.
As an online agency with personal service based in Brisbane our customers are Australia wide, and we present an inspiring selection of holidays on our website to show you itineraries on offer.

Everyone is different and we know your style of travel often changes from one holiday to the next, just like ours, from a beach break to busy touring or visiting friends and relatives, then a relaxing cruise may do the trick.

“Artisan Holidays Brisbane was excellent and would highly recommend them! Personalized service and consistent contact that you would expect, but rarely get.”- Irene
My passion for the travel industry started in 1991 covering the UK & Australia. Since then I’ve gained an in-depth knowledge running tour operator companies, owning and managing retail travel businesses as well as extensive insight from my years of world travels, both business and pleasure. The deep appreciation for wonderful world journeys, from my Arctic to Antarctic knowledge, is all a reflection on Artisan Holidays as I make sure no stone is left unturned when you embark on your next touring or cruising holiday with us. Ultimately we want to ensure you benefit from our extensive travel experience and share the same lifelong memories we carry from our journeys.
I’ve been sharing the travel dream since 1993, creating and delivering life long memories for many a traveller from Europe to Australia. My retail travel experience extends from the worldwide operation of Flight Centre to our specialist family agencies in Brisbane. This is backed by knowledge within airline sales & operations management where I worked with tour operators, tourist boards & travellers directly to develop award winning holidays programmes. I draw from that combined knowledge to ensure our Artisan Holidays fellow travelers will get the best tour and cruise choice for every region and that they will experience the same pleasure we have during years of our own world travels from South Amercia to the home of the sauna, Scandinavia.
