Guided Private New Zealand Tours

Guided Private New Zealand Tours

Only you and your personal tour guide/chauffeur

You don’t like to travel in a group or drive on the left hand side of the road?

You would like to experience the most beautiful corners of New Zealand personally, be driven and be presented with these experiences by your local knowledgeable tour guide / chauffeur?

An individual journey of this kind naturally offers very special, exclusive and individual moments. Through the knowledge of the country, the people and the places. A very special travel experience can be created which can also be spontaneously adapted to special interests and joys on the spot without any pressure from a group or time constraints.

Since the trip takes place without further group members we will design a custom-made solution for your journey. Our experienced Tour Driver Guides hold valid New Zealand passenger endorsements, first aid certificates and a variety of special permits such as driving 4WDs on beaches. They are passionate about showing you this beautiful country in person. Explore the diversity and fascination on a personal journey.

Daily Departures are possible – depending on your arrival date!

Price per Person in Double Room/Twin Share from:

The prices of your chosen self-drive round trip plus the costs for your guide / chauffeur and his accommodation and meals. Customized Tours on request.


The self drive tours listed below have also been designed by us as a private round trip for you. Simply choose a round trip according to your taste and ask us about the tour guide/chauffeur option. If you have any special requirements – no problem! You are welcome to let us know your individual dates and wishes. We can design an incredible tailored experience for you. Enquire now!


For guests unfamiliar driving on the left hand side our Driver Tour Guides will put you at ease:
