CUSTOM TOURS (you choose where)

We are happy to customise a tour to suit your interests,or take you anywhere you want to go while your visiting our region.Or if you don’t have time to spend a full day touring let us know how long you want and we can quote you for a tour around the region that suits your timeframe.

We recommend that while your here you should come and see the World of Wearable Arts and Classic Cars museum with us,we can add this onto our Nelson wine tour or scenic highlights tour (priced on request) or can offer this as a stop on any half or full day tour we offer you.

Nelson Lakes up in St Arnaud is a lovely half day trip that you can do after WOW museum priced from $350 per couple, or the other locations that follow are also popular spots we can show you,all with just your group only in the vehicle. 

Nelson to Takaka and Golden Bay.We will show you some of the highlights of the Golden Bay region in a day trip from Nelson that takes aprox 8 hours return from $500 per couple.

Stunning scenery ,Anatoki Salmon farm, bush walks, waterfall, and beaches are what you will discover on this tour,and we will pick you up and return you to your accommodation as well as allow you time for lunch.If you want to swim we can be flexible with the itinerary to allow you time to swim.Comfortable shoes for walking on tracks and sand are advised for this tour.

Nelson to Takaka driving time is 1 hour 45 minutes each way,so with 3.5 hours driving time there and back if doing just a day trip it does limit the options of what you can see in a day,so we also offer an overnight trip that does allow the time needed to experience more of the area at its best. Prices for the overnight trip depend on time of year as accommodation in Takaka where we stay the night varies,but just ask for a quote for this 2 day (1 night) option if interested.

 

NELSON to HANMER SPRINGS, We also offer a day trip from your accommodation in Nelson to Hanmer Springs for the day and then deliver you back to your Nelson accommodation.

This day trip is a 12 hour trip. It takes 4 hours of driving each way, and gives you 4 hours to spend in Hanmer, usually spent 3 hours at the hot pools and world class massage and day spa and 1 hour having a meal at a café before heading back to Nelson.

The cost for this trip is $680 includes first 2 passengers and $150 per person thereafter.
