If you prefer to travel in a small group or have the services of an exclusive guide we can arrange that for you as well.
Travelling this way takes all the stress out of driving on unfamiliar roads in an unfamiliar vehicle. There's also the added benefit of having an expert on hand to interpret what you are seeing, which will no doubt enhance the whole experience. No more wrestling with the guide book and road map whilst trying to drive and navigate your way around New Zealand and taking on board new information.
We work with a number of small group guided tour companies who offer a range of day and multi day trips on, or around, both islands.
A guide will take care of all arrangements on the ground in New Zealand. They provide expert commentary so you can really understand the uniqueness of New Zealand, take care of all the driving, transfers, sort out any problems with accommodation and take you to some hidden gems not found in most guide books. They will make sure your trip down under is a truly amazing experience.
If you enjoy sailing or cruising why not explore New Zealand's coastline as part of a small group tour? Discover uninhabited sanctuary islands and perfect beaches, watch dolpins playing in the sea or go kayaking, snorkelling or fishing. Alternatively sit back and enjoy the views whilst enjoying a drink from the complimentary bar.
There are a number of options but cruises generally last for around a week and include transfers to and from the airports, as well as a number of daytrips, and even wine tasting or helicopter rides.
Travelling with a private guide is more expensive than joining a small group guided tour but does give you a lot more flexibility. Even if you are following an itinerary, each day you will be able to discuss with the guide your exact plans for the day. Your guide will be able to recommend various options depending on local events, interests and of course the weather. Your trip will become a truly personalised and unique experience.
Whether you choose to join a small group or have a private guide is entirely up to you. You could spend a week cruising the coast and add on a self-drive holiday at the end, or include some guided day treks into your trip.
