How we run our private tours around New Zealand

We can meet you on arrival at any airport in New Zealand, or any other location you choose, (we can start in any town, not just the main centres). We drive you around New Zealand or just one island, showing you all the finest attractions and excursions along the way, as well as some beautiful quieter spots that our experience and local knowledge can take you to see that the larger bus company tours either cant get into or dont know exist. Our same driver will be with you for your entire trip, you wont be passed on to different drivers in different regions.

Depending on the length of time you have available for your travel, we will design a NZ tour itinerary to suit your time frame. You can start and finish your road trip in different cities and fly back to your city of departure (which is what most clients do if doing both islands with us) or you can travel back to your starting city with us if you choose.

You will need to allow a minimum of 15 days, 14 nights accommodation if you wish to experience most of the whole country (both the North Island and the South Island) on a full road trip with us. However, it’s more relaxed and with less daily moving if you can spend 21 nights ending day 22. To do both islands in these 15 days does mean moving accommodation mostly daily. If you don’t have that long, then we suggest you just visit either the North island or the South Island during your road trip. Flying between the islands and back again when doing the whole country is a more expensive option as we need 2 vehicles and drivers to accommodate that. However, we can quote for that if you dont have enough time to do the 14 nights minimum we suggest, by doing it that way you will only get to see parts of each island.

Our fixed guided tours price includes our private driver and all his and the vehicles costs including fuel and including drivers accommodation and all taxes.

You will have the services of our driver/guide available to you all day, subject to New Zealand law for driver rest time requirements.

Send us an email stating where you arrive and depart from and what time, and how many are in your group and let us price you a tour to best suit your timeframe including both islands or just one island, and let us take the stress out of driving while you relax and enjoy seeing the best New Zealand has to offer with a locals knowledge of where to show you.

Not included in our fees are:

  • Your own accommodation costs
  • Your meals and refreshments
  • Your excursions or entry fees to attractions or your spending money.

We will advise attractions entry costs in your itinerary, and we tell you what nights you need to stay overnight in which town so you can book your own level of accommodation in those towns yourselves via or similar sites.

Luggage carrying is limited to 1 suitcase and 1 small carry on bag or purse per person, as we don’t use trailers or roof boxes on our vehicles, so your luggage has to fit in the rear cargo area of the van itself. Laundry facilities are available in most accommodation options throughout New Zealand.

*If you have children aged 7 years or younger travelling then New Zealand law requires a booster seat or baby seat be used. Please advise us of this at the time of your enquiry as we will have to supply a seat to suit your child’s age and a hireage cost is required for these.

What our people say about our tours


We are a group of three retired couples from India and wished to travel to South New Zealand. We found Paul through Tripadvisor and would highly recommend his professional help during our recent trip. He and his team made our trip memorable by taking us in the best places, patiently answering all our questions, filling us with history of places we saw. I would highly recommend him to people who would prefer to br driven around in comfort .

(From Trip Advisor)

I found out about Paul after scouring online and reading all the positive reviews and I’m so happy we used his service instead of going with the normal tour. My family and I, a total of 8 people with a mix of elderly, have had the best tour ever. He personalised our tour with recommendation of places to visit and planned out our itinerary bearing in mind that half of our group are elders over 70s. I just need to book our accomodation as per plan allowing us to stay in places we’re comfortable in which I preferred.

Let us create you a customised NZ tour itinerary

Once you book, after payment of a deposit we can then take the time to create a specific itinerary, customised for you that perfectly suits your timeframe for your tour around New Zealand. The itinerary advises what towns or cities we require accommodation in

You then book your own desired level of accommodation in those locations. Or if you have already pre booked your accommodation we will try to design a tour itinerary to work in with your pre-booked stops. It is best to let us suggest where we overnight in order to allow the tour to flow and you to see as much of the country as possible in your timeframe as our roads take a lot more hours to drive between destinations than most visitors think its going to!

Rotorua NZ touring

We collect you from your Auckland accommodation and create an itinerary that suits your couples or groups walking ability or adventure your seeking. Remember its just yourselves and our driver in our vehicles exclusively for you, not random public to make up the numbers.

Typically our tours take clients on day 1 from Auckland to Spellbound glow worm caves near Waitomo, before continuing on to Rotorua arriving in evening.

The next morning we usually visit Te Puia geothermal park where you can see New Zealands highest spurting geyser, a kiwi bird in the nocturnal kiwi house and traditional maori art and crafts being made as well as an excellent buffet lunch available at their cafe.

After lunch, options we can do depend on the group but can include visiting the Redwoods Tree Walk then the Gondola and luge ride, before returning back to your Auckland accommodation point arriving that evening day 2.

If staying 2 nights we also have options for day 3 that can include either taking a River Rafting on the Kaituna river, where you go over a 7mtr high waterfall in the raft (the worlds highest commercially rafted waterfall) Or You could do a Rotorua Canopy tours zipline Which is like a flying fox up in the treetops of hundred year old native forest Or if not wanting that type of adventure you may prefer to visit the Agrodome or perhaps just a visit to Hobbiton after a morning stroll lakeside in Rotorua first before returning to Auckland late afternoon day 3.

We can provide a quote to do whatever it is you wish to enjoy on this mini break away,(and it can be for longer and take in more than just Rotorua if wanted).  

Let us know if wanting a quote for any of the above or any other destinations your wanting to visit from Auckland or any areas around NZ over a few days and we can quote to go anywhere you wish.
