New Zealand Small Group Tours

Our small group escorted tours are very special. We proudly offer flexible, comfortable, good-humoured and unforgettable journeys with no more than 16 guests per tour. Our unique itineraries and hand-selected accommodation offer opportunities for personalised experiences and wonderful service.

Our itineraries range from 11 – 23 days. Our signature tour is a superb 23-day journey that packs in the maximum number of unforgettable experiences. If you don’t have 23 days to spare, or if you wish to combine an escorted journey with tailor-made arrangements, then pick one of our shorter tours which join and leave the main tour during our three-week adventure through New Zealand.
