Andrew London is a full time entertainer based in Otaki on New Zealand’s Kapiti Coast. He has performed throughout Australasia with several groups over the last 20 years, being adept at a variety of musical genres from country and folk to jazz and blues. His specialty, however, is musical comedy and satire, and his quirky original songs are increasingly insinuating themselves into Kiwi culture.
Notable Tours has been a natural progression from our many pilgrimages to music festivals on Norfolk Island over the last 20 years.
Many of those who accompanied us on these trips expressed an interest in other destinations that combine travel and music, and with overseas travel limited during the Covid era, the time was right for us to host some package tours to local destinations.
Remember the old TV ads in the 70s? ‘Don’t leave town till you’ve seen the country!
Kirsten came up with the catchy Notable Tours name and the idea for the logo, and we were off.
We hosted our first Notable Tour to Martinborough in November 2020, and quickly realised we needed some help on the ground.
Luckily our mates Mel and Geoff Warwick were on the tour (as paying guests!) and didn’t mind stepping in to give us a hand. The four of us quickly formed a partnership, and took 45 intrepid souls to Whanganui in February 2021, followed up by a three day sojourn in beautiful Hawkes Bay.
Since then we have conducted sold-out tours to Taupo, Nelson, The Kapiti Coast and Manawatu, and currently have a waiting list for tours to Taranaki in November 2003 and The South Island’s West Coast in April 2024.

Thank you all for making the Hawkes Bay Tour such a success. We were so well looked after. You not only chose the venues and activities well but looked after our every need. Such a nice atmosphere, I reckon we’ll all be resolving to sign up for future trips.

First – a million thanks for the wonderful tour to Wanganui. It all went so smoothly – for the participants – and you four all went above and beyond to give us such a great experience. Your Notable Tour was very “notable” and memorable. Thank you all again for such a great trip.
