Escorted New Zealand Tours for Seniors

For more mature travelers who seek an immersive, rewarding travel experience, escorted New Zealand tours for seniors are the perfect choice.

If you are after the comfort, convenience, and ease of cruise-style travel, a privately escorted tour will provide the structure and simplicity you need for a rewarding vacation. And in fact, a privately escorted tour is far better than a cruise. Touring with a guide allows you to relax and immerse yourselves in each unforgettable destination, rather than limiting you to hurried port stops.

And if you prefer a more active holiday style, a private guide will negotiate the details. This allows you to fill your time with rewarding experiences and local encounters.

Escorted New Zealand tours for seniors will elevate your next vacation to the experience of a lifetime. Read on to learn why.

Why New Zealand Tours for Seniors are the Perfect Way to Travel

1. Experience the true local flavor and hidden secrets of each destination

While younger travelers might be drawn in by the flashiest adrenaline activities or the most over-hyped destinations, mature travelers know the most gratifying parts of travel are usually the ones you don’t expect.

From the passionate conversation you share with a vintner over a glass of the estate’s finest wine, to the hidden viewpoint that no other tourist can find, your guide will reveal the local secrets while you travel. It is these unconventional experiences you will remember most when you look back on your holiday in years to come.

2. Plan your itinerary with the help of NZ experts

Planning an itinerary that is both achievable and exciting is the hardest part of travel.

What is more, researching online what to do and where to stay can be very tricky. It is hard to know which tourism operators to trust, especially when there are so many options available. Balancing schedule, comfort, accommodation location, reviews, and price is enough to give the most experienced travelers a headache.

When you book a privately escorted tour with New Zealand Guided Tours, both your personal travel consultant and your tour guide will oversee these details. This streamlines the process so you only need to worry about the important part: what you want most from your holiday.

Our team works with trusted operators that we have personally vetted. As we work with you on itinerary design, we will talk you through the important decisions and the day-by-day flow of your travel either by phone or email.

With our expertise, every detail of your tour will be carefully curated to create the experience you desire. You can read our testimonials for enthusiastic feedback from other travelers like you.

3. Escorted New Zealand tours for seniors require no driving

Driving overseas is one of the most intimidating parts of travel, no matter your age. In New Zealand, roads are narrow and winding, and cars drive on the left side of the road.

When you travel with a private guide, you don’t need to worry about getting from place to place. Simply sit back in your luxury vehicle and enjoy the spectacular scenery gliding by.

From the moment you arrive at the airport to the time you are dropped off for your departing flight, your guide will chauffeur you to every hotel, restaurant, activity, and scenic New Zealand destination throughout your holiday.

4. Sample the best restaurants with help from your tour guide

Not only will your guide chauffeur you to and from every meal–he or she will also help you select the perfect restaurant for every meal based on your personal tastes.

Drawing on a lifetime of experience, your NZ tour guide will recommend the best restaurants in each destination.

Whether you are after an exquisite degustation meal showcasing the area’s finest, a simple, hearty pub meal, or an international dinner, your guide will help you decide the best restaurant for each meal.

No longer do you need to spend time researching restaurants online and hunting down your chosen option. Simply climb into your tour vehicle and let your guide do the hard work.

5. Your tour guide will arrange for any special requests

Whether you would prefer a room on the ground floor to avoid carrying heavy luggage upstairs, or you require a swimming pool at each accommodation for medical reasons, or you need accessible rooms and special seating for events, your travel consultant and guide will arrange every detail to match your needs.

If you have other special interests–such as a passion for birdwatching or wine tasting or photography–your guide will hand-pick experiences that take you off the usual tourist route to discover the very best of your unique interest. No matter what you want from your holiday, we will make it happen.
