Tara Matilda
Travel Consultant

Phone Number: (604) 605-5188

Expertise: Fiji & Corporate travel. Fiji Matai Specialist.

Bio: Tara joined us in 2003 after working in retail for 7 years.  Her grandfather worked for an airline, traveled a lot and loved the life in the travel industry, so Tara thought she'd give it a go too.  (So far, so good!)

Favourite places: Fiji, Kingdom of Tonga, South Australia, South Island New Zealand, London, Las Vegas.

Hobbies: Travel (of course), shopping, movies, relaxing and reading a good book, making beaded jewellery, and her pug Bella.

Travel tip: When you pack, leave room for the shopping you bring home. (I had to buy a duffel bag in London to fit all of my purchases.)


To be certified a Fiji Matai specialist, travel agents must complete a course annually, and must have a 80% pass rate each year on Fiji Tourism’s course exam.

Matai Curriculum:

Module 1: General information about Fiji.
Module 2: Products and services available within each of Fiji’s regions.
Module 3: Fiji Island Culture(s).
Module 4: Niche markets


HMU really appreciates all your help and diligence with everything Tara!! You did an amazing job coming in under the gun and we're so happy with your services. HMU will certainly remember how excellent the Travel Group performed for us.
