Your refreshing adventure starts here. New Zealand self-drive itineraries designed just for North American travelers.
On the Itineraries pages we've created inspiring examples of New Zealand self drive tours that allow you to make the most of your valuable vacation time in New Zealand. Just follow the 3 Steps below.
Or, if you prefer to have a tailor-made itinerary created from scratch, just for you, we can do that too - just click here and tell us what you have in mind.
Select one of the example New Zealand itineraries that you like, basing your choice on the number of days that you plan to be in New Zealand. Then click on the daily activities that you think you'll enjoy at each stop along the way.
When you're finished making your daily activities selections, send your resulting Wish List to us. There's space on the Wish List for you to add comments about your personal travel preferences or any special needs that you would like us to know about.
We then suggest how your itinerary could be improved, to include the interests and preferences that you've told us about. Finally, we give you a quotation for your vacation and if you're happy with the price, we book your vacation arrangements for you.
In New Zealand, we are full members of TIA - the Tourism Industry Aotearoa. In the US we are members of ASTA - The American Society of Travel Agents. We are also official affiliates of the luxury travel network Virtuoso and YTC - 'Your Travel Center' and MVT - Montecito Village Travel based in Santa Barbara.
We have special discounted rates with a wide range of local tourism operators, so we can provide you with the most competitive prices, certainly better than if you tried to go it alone. Plus, you get the bonus of our valuable experience and advice and you can't put a price on that!
You’ll be dealing with New Zealand travel experts who have been in the travel business for many years and know New Zealand inside and out. That means that we can get you to those special 'off the beaten path' locations where you will experience the true essence of this beautiful country.
You will be dealing with New Zealanders, real tour experts, and each of us takes immense pride in providing our US customers with a unique and extraordinary vacation experience.
If you strike an unexpected problem during your travels, you'll have a local number that you can call for assistance.
If you have a limited vacation budget we respect that and we never try to talk our customers into spending more than they are comfortable with.
