New Zealand is a fantastic country to explore, full of natural wonders, unique wildlife, and exquisite cuisine. Why travel to New Zealand on an escorted tour?
In the end, there is no better way to experience this very special place.
Read on for more details on why you should travel to New Zealand on an escorted tour.
New Zealand is full of stories, from its tumultuous geological past to its rich Maori heritage.
When you travel with a guide, you will enjoy an in-depth look at the heart of New Zealand. You won’t explore the country as a tourist, but instead as a cherished guest.
From visiting your guide’s favorite restaurants to walking wilderness trails with your own private wildlife-spotter, your guide adds an in-depth local’s perspective to your stay in New Zealand.
One of the best parts of travel in New Zealand is enjoying the views along the many scenic drives. However, the roads can be narrow and winding, which makes it hard to look out the window. In addition, travelers from places like the US might find it challenging to drive on the left side of the road.
If you book a privately guided New Zealand tour package, your guide will handle the driving and navigation, leaving you free to soak in the scenery.
What are helicopter cowboys? Is that really a kiwi, or just a weka? Is it true there are more sheep than people in New Zealand?
Your personal guide will entertain you along your travels with countless stories and little-known facts. New Zealand is bursting with fascinating contradictions and intriguing histories–having a guide on-hand will give you a much richer understanding of everything you see.
If you are visiting New Zealand in a group of five or more travelers, finding suitable transport can be tricky. Larger vehicles are often less comfortable, and smaller vehicles lack sufficient luggage space.
If you travel with a private guide, this is no longer a problem. Our guides are certified to drive a much larger range of vehicles than most travelers, including luxury vans and mini-buses suitable for groups of all sizes.
If you are traveling with a large group, we can even arrange a full-sized bus so everyone can fit in the same vehicle.
And our guided vehicles are typically much more luxurious than ordinary rental car models, with plush seats, plenty of leg room, and large windows for watching the scenery go by.
When you book a guided tour with a larger group, the per-person price is not much different from traveling without a guide. There’s no reason not to enjoy the convenience and comfort of a guided New Zealand tour package.
New Zealand has established a well-worn tourist’s route, and if you stick exclusively to this, your experience might fall a bit flat.
With the help of a guide, you can see the major sites while also visiting the hidden viewpoints, local wineries, out-of-the-way geothermal reserves, and secluded beaches that truly make New Zealand special.
