New Zealand holidays & tours
With its astonishing scenery, warm hospitality and charismatic Maori culture, New Zealand delights and surprises in equal measure. So much so, you’ll come away from our New Zealand tours full of fond memories and with a camera bursting with spectacular images.
While it may be smaller than neighbouring Australia, New Zealand packs just as much of a scenic punch. On our New Zealand tours, you can expect to see everything from snow-tipped mountains and gin-clear bays to hulking volcanoes, raging rivers and the fairytale hillsides that passed as Middle Earth in the Lord of the Rings movie trilogy.
Add the urban charms of fascinating Auckland, colourful Wellington and other cities and you’ve got yourself a holiday with everything.
Highlights of our New Zealand tours
Our range of escorted tours of New Zealand showcase all the best-known sights of both its North and South Island, giving you a fantastic, balanced perspective on what each offers.
On the North Island, you can explore the thermal wonderland of Rotorua with its lake, hot springs and dense forests. You can also visit Rainbow Springs, home of the Rainbow Trout, and absorb the exquisite Bay of Islands, cruising into its incredible Cathedral Cave and watching for dolphins frolicking in its translucent waters. Other highlights include the lovely ‘City of Sails’ that is Auckland and the harbourside capital of Wellington, which often draws comparisons with San Francisco.
Our New Zealand tours also embrace the best of the South Island. Get to know charming Christchurch and Dunedin, and breathe in the crisp air of Queenstown, a stunning lakeside resort backed by the craggy Remarkables Mountains. And don’t miss Milford Sound. Fringed by towering cliffs, this pristine fjord was described by Rudyard Kipling as the ‘eighth wonder of the world’. We pack plenty more into our New Zealand tours, too. Cue cloud-piercing Mount Cook, the silvery Franz Josef glacier and Tonga Island, home to colonies of fur seals.
Lastly, why not combine your New Zealand tour with a holiday to Australia? We offer a host of enticing options that feature the highlights of, or dig deeper, into both. And why not make the most of this far-flung part of the world? You can extend our New Zealand escorted tours with stopovers in beguiling Bangkok, Hong Kong and Singapore.
