Guided Small Group Tours – One of the most beautiful ways to explore New Zealand!

 

You will get a personalised 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 (shepherd) like a horde of tourists (stock of sheep).

Probably one of the most beautiful ways to experience New Zealand! Your driver tour guide is looking forward to welcoming you on one of our incredible Guided Small Group Tours. Our extensive knowledge as a New Zealand Specialist is at your disposal.

For your personal and individual travel requests please get in touch here.

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.
