What do we do?

We use our experience and knowledge of New Zealand and our unique technology to design and create a truly memorable New Zealand self-drive vacation for you.

We don’t simply resell you other companies' New Zealand itineraries and tours relabelled as our own. We offer you the largest choice of tour routes and accommodation/car/activity combinations and we can customise each one to suit your vacation preferences.

Your New Zealand tour expert will handle your inquiry from your first contact with us, through the planning process, booking and documentation of your itinerary. This means you get continuity of service and consistent quality across your all-inclusive New Zealand experience.

Why choose us to plan your New Zealand tour?

We have built our reputation on honest, accurate, relevant advice combined with an absolute no compromise approach to providing you with the best possible service. With our custom technology we offer professional itinerary presentations. This combined with reservation and management technology ensures we spend time planning and organizing your tour and not processing paper!

Our small dedicated team are all New Zealand enthusiasts and between us we have visited or experienced virtually every property, activity and location we offer you.

We publish all feedback we receive to our guest book and you can search this for specific locations, properties and activities to see what other guests have to say. We take feedback seriously and continually monitor quality of our suppliers.

I grew up in the UK where I studied psychology - after years of hitting the books, I decided to hit the road and I made my way to New Zealand! I travelled right across the country, bought a house in Wanaka, and now I'm here for good helping others explore as I did.

Born and raised in Wellington I came to spend a summer holiday in Wanaka a few years ago and instantly fell in love. I decided to leave the city life and make my way to the beautiful lakes and mountains. I love to be outdoors exploring and hiking, especially in the Summer. Otherwise you can find me keeping cosy with a good book, good people and good food. I am incredibly lucky to live here in this awesome part of the world, let me show you why!'
