Taking a tour can offer your clients a stress-free way of seeing the country. Choose from many different types, from budget day trips to the most luxurious private guided tours.

Making the Sale
New Zealand Trade Manual A tour can be a hassle-free way for your clients to visit New Zealand and is ideal for those who have limited time or are not confident travellers.
New Zealand Trade Manual Tour options range from all-inclusive package tours to hop-on, hop-off bus tours and self-drive tours, so you can find the perfect fit for your clients.
New Zealand Trade Manual Even if your clients are travelling independently for the most part, consider including a tour for part of their itinerary – whether its a one-day sight-seeing tour or an overnight walking or cycling tour.

Options for tours range from independent to guided or group tours. Independent tours offer maximum flexibility – assistance with planning the itinerary, but once in New Zealand, your clients will be on their own – while guided and group tours are an easy way to experience popular itineraries.

For those seeking a packaged tour, major guided tour operators include Great Sights, AAT Kings, Gray Line New Zealand, Johnston’s Coachlines, Kirra Holidays and Pacific Tourways.

Kiwi Travel and Tours offers both pre-planned tour packages and custom-designed tours to suit your clients’ needs. Chartering a coach allows you to plan the perfect itinerary – some companies also provide assistance with planning or will design a custom itinerary to suit your precise needs. Try Tours and Travel New Zealand, Leopard Coachlines, Orlova South and Guthreys Coachlines.

For free independent travellers, there are some good hop-on, hop-off coach tours designed for backpackers. Try Kiwi Experience, Magic Travellers Network and Stray.

Also look for specialist tour operators such as Red Carpet Tours, specialising in The Lord of the Rings location tours, or Green Realm Travel, with its luxury small group tours.
