  • Simon
“This was the most expensive (by far) holiday I've ever taken and it exceeded expectations. We were fortunate that the group of 7 + guide all got along very well together.There's a comment on your website from a previous trip that there wasn't enough walking, and this was a concern for me in advance, but looking back I think it was just right for me. The members of the group had different walking capacities, and our guide ensured we were each able to achieve our respective goals.”
Really enjoyed my sight seeing vacation

“New Zealand is AWESOME! clean, pristine lots of H2O and lushly beautiful landscape. I'm glad to be with Si group, with his vast knowledge and experience about NZ. He is a mans man and will say things as is, at times funny, he is attentive, well do the extra mile to make sure everyone is OK and safe, and having a great time. Aside from my sunburnt face? I really enjoyed my sight seeing vacation.”
Fantastic!

“This tour is a great way to see the major sights in New Zealand. Many optional activities offer for an additional price which you can choose to participate in or not. Our tour guide George, made the trip very memorable. He loves his country and his enthusiasm was contagious. Our group started as strangers and left as friends.”

Travel Tips for New Zealand Adventure Tours

  • New Zealand's ever-changing weather means that you will need to pack versatile clothing. Whether you are exploring the Franz Josef Glacier on the South Island or relaxing at Piha Beach on the North Island, pack layers that can help you adapt to diverse conditions.
  • If you have booked a trip that requires you to board a vehicle but the weather takes an unpredictable turn, you can contact the driving operator or the tour company to see if they have a policy for rescheduling or offering alternative activities.
  • If you are looking to rent a bike and ride it along the road, you need to understand that riding a bike (cycle) on the motorway and busy roads is not allowed. You also need to wear a helmet at all times and be well-versed in the local traffic rules.
  • While trekking the Tongariro Alpine Crossing or kayaking in Abel Tasman National Park, adhere to the "Leave No Trace" principles to preserve the environment.
