Are you dreaming of a once-in-a-lifetime vacation to New Zealand but don’t know where to start? There’s so much to consider – independent travel versus a group tour, transport, the itinerary. We believe deciding ‘how’ you travel is the most important thing. We’ve put together five reasons why we think a New Zealand group tour will give you the most unforgettable Kiwi experience.
1. All the hard stuff is taken care of
You don’t need to think about anything on a group tour – relax in the knowledge you’re seeing & doing the best of NZ, no stress, no planning.
The stress of planning can take the joy and excitement out of travelling. With a New Zealand group tour, it’s good to know that local Kiwis have put together the best activities and attractions in the country for you. There is no need to get lost on our windy roads, get stuck in the middle of nowhere with a dodgy rental car, or sleep on a rock-hard mattress – a group tour allows you sit back, relax and enjoy New Zealand’s pristine scenery and famous Kiwi hospitality.
2. Travel with an experienced Kiwi guide
The right guide can help bring an unfamiliar country to life; make you feel safe & secure, learn more about the culture, people & history.
New Zealand is so jam-packed with magnificent landscapes, exciting activities and intriguing history, that it is easy to become overwhelmed. Group tours are the best way to fit in the best of what New Zealand has to offer, especially when they are run by Kiwis themselves. With local knowledge and a passion for their homeland, friendly tour guides will take you off the beaten track and turn your New Zealand tour into a raw, incomparable Kiwi encounter.
3. Travel with like-minded people
Group travel in a country like NZ is so much fun – you’ll meet like-minded people, make new friends, enjoy companionship and spend time with people from all over the world.
Travelling is one of the best ways to make new, life-long friends. A New Zealand group tour not only gives you the opportunity to see a beautiful country, it is a great way to meet beautiful people. Travelling with like-minded people will only make your New Zealand experience a better one!
4. Unique itineraries
The right New Zealand Group Tour will include plenty of off-the-beaten track destinations & opportunities to meet Kiwi locals that you might not be able to do/see if exploring independently.
Don’t just follow the herd from hotspot to hotspot; look for a group tour that diverts off the main road to allow you to explore some of New Zealand’s best-kept secrets. What makes an itinerary unique is not just the ‘must-sees’ but the local Kiwi secret spots.
5. Value for money
Often, Group Travel means that you save money. A tour package is often cheaper than booking the same things directly as an independent traveler.
Just like buying in bulk, booking hotels, transport and activities for a large number most likely works out cheaper than doing it alone. New Zealand group tour companies build great relationships with tourism operators around the country to bring you great value for money.
