Guided Small Group Tours – Maybe the most beautiful way to explore New Zealand!

 

You will get a personalized experience and see places that larger groups or buses cannot reach!

Discovering New Zealand in a small group and benefiting from our local knowledge is a truly personal and lasting New Zealand experience. You will see places and experience things that larger groups / buses can not reach and will remain unknown.

Traveling in a small group creates many lasting friendships. With hardly any other form of travel, you can experience so much in compressed time, while still having fun with like-minded people. Because the group size is limited, there is enough space for your individuality and you do not run after a tour guide like a horde of tourists. Multilingual options are English and German. Probably the most beautiful way to experience New Zealand!? Your driver tour guide is looking forward to welcoming you on one of our Guided Small Group Tours with a group size of 4-10 people

 

Our extensive knowledge as a New Zealand Specialist is at your disposal. For your personal and individual travel requests please get in touch here.

Guided Private Tours – Only you and your personal Tour Guide / Chauffeur!

 

You do not like to travel in a group or drive on the left side of the road?

You would like to personally experience the most beautiful corners of New Zealand, be driven and have these experiences presented by your tour guide / chauffeur? Then please feel free to take a look at our guided Private Tours.

An individual journey of this kind is very special, exclusive and provides you with individual great moments. By knowing the country, people and places, a very special travel experience can be created, which can also be spontaneously adapted to your special interests and pleasures on the spot. Without peer pressure or time constraints.

Our professional „Driver Tour Guides“ are familiar with the country and know how to drive on the left side of the road – even on the gravel roads which are still left in untouched corners. They also know e.g. at what time of the day the penguins come out of the water and walk towards their colony and much more. Our tour guides look forward to providing you with individual experiences on your ‚carefree‘ trip. You enjoy New Zealand and we take care of the rest!
