New Zealand Small Group Tours

Customised Holidays for Small Groups

Are you travelling to New Zealand with a group of friends, your family, extended family or as part of a business group? Are you looking for your own custom made New Zealand holiday or tour inclusive of a tour guide, driver and private transport? Then you have come to the right place!

New Zealand Guided Tours specialises in providing very customised New Zealand small group tours to international travellers wishing to explore New Zealand at their own pace with the guidance of a highly trained and local to New Zealand tour guide.

New Zealand is your oyster! You name it we can organise it, therefore do not hesitate to contact us and your own personal small group travel consultant will guide you through every step, in a very detailed and supportive way.

What is a Small Group Tour?

A Small Group Tour is a relatively loose term. This could mean a single person travelling on their own, a couple, a group of friends, a family or a corporate group. The tour size can range from 1 person to say 35, though there is no limit to the number of people we can cater for. Most importantly, you are free to explore and enjoy New Zealand with only your chosen group of travellers.

How it works

The first step is to make contact with us. You can do this by enquiring about one of our suggested tours or you can simply email us.

Your personal small group tour consultant will then be in touch within 12 hours (depending on the time zone you are in).

Your highly specialised consultant will then communicate with you via phone and email to determine exactly what you are looking for and what will make your New Zealand Small Group Tour special! You will then receive a detailed tour itinerary via email, which of course will be customised further until it matches exactly what you are looking for.

Once you are happy with your small group tour of New Zealand, it is time to book. From this point everything is taken care of for you. Every detail is thought of by your personal consultant, all bookings are made on your behalf and within ten working days you will receive your detailed confirmed tour documentation. 

What is included?

Highly experienced and trained tour guide

Your tour guide is a vital element to the success and enjoyment of your New Zealand tour, therefore we only employ the most experienced and highly trained tour guides. Our guides are extremely professional and take each tour very seriously to ensure it runs seamlessly from start to finish, however they are also very personable, relaxed and flexible to ensure they can easily cater to your groups needs and requests. Your guide also acts as your driver.

Touring vehicle

All transportation within New Zealand is included in your small group tour package. We use luxury touring vehicles that suit the size of your group. In most instances these are late model Mercedes Sprinters through to luxury coaches for groups larger than 17 people. Some tours involve domestic flights, which can be included and booked on your behalf. No further transport is required; you are collected from the airport, delivered to your hotels, chosen activities, must visit scenic locations, restaurants and back to the airport for your departure. What more could you ask for?!

All experiences and must do activities in New Zealand

New Zealand is unique in that practically every type of landscape is found within this very small country. Our activities are carefully selected to showcase the very best of each unique location, and of course we can customise your activity inclusions as well.

With small group New Zealand tours that include both the North and South Islands, we try to include the full array of experiences, from beaches and Maori culture through to geothermal wonders, glowworm caves, glaciers, and fiords. 

If you have a taste for adventure, we can provide any level of excitement, from jet-boating right through to skydiving.

If you enjoy active sports, you’ll find plenty to sample from in New Zealand, including mountain biking, hiking, swimming with dolphins, rafting, canyoning, and adventure caving.

If wildlife is your passion, our native species, many which can be found nowhere else in the world, are sure to delight. Penguins, kiwis, dolphins, whales, seals, wekas, keas…you can see all of these stunning animals in the wild on perfectly matched tour.

And if you have something on your bucket list you want to try, New Zealand is the place to do it!

Excellent accommodation

We work with the top accommodation operators throughout New Zealand, so you are guaranteed to be comfortable and well provided for throughout your stay. Our hotels, motels, and apartment complexes are located in the very best locations, within easy walking distance of the town centres, and often come with breathtaking views. 

You have a choice of accommodation level, from standard 4-star accommodation through to luxurious 5-star accommodation or exquisite luxury lodges.

Arriving in New Zealand

Your tour guide will be waiting at the airport for you with a signboard reading your name. The most popular airports to fly into include Auckland, Christchurch and Queenstown.

From there your tour guide, who will also act as your driver, will take care of every detail of your holiday. They will not only help you check-in to your hotels and chosen must do New Zealand activities, they will also customise your New Zealand tour to suit your group in every way.

If you are travelling as a family, your guide will offer diversions to keep everyone happy, young and old. If you have a particular interest in history, culture, geology, wineries, wildlife, photography, etc., your guide will tailor your holiday to include a wealth of knowledge about your area of interest.

When it comes time to wave good-bye to your tour guide as they deliver you to the airport for your flight home, you would have shared many experiences together and formed a unique relationship.

Advantages of a Small Group Tour
