- Whatever you want - you can choose the itinerary
The itinerary is down to you, decide what you want to do on the day or let us create a full itinerary including the destination and activities. Your driver/guide knows all the best places to visit, and can take you to places the larger cruise ship tours coaches cant visit.
You could combine a visit to Rotorua with the Hobbiton movie set tours, or go to the Waitomo Glow worm caves.
For that really special day out why note visit one of the world famous 6 star luxury lodges for a memorable lunch, such as Huka Lodge or Treetops.
Be a celebrity for the day.
Like the idea of a Private Tour but there are just a few of you, then why not share the costs, just place a message on our "Tour Share" facility to find others on your ship to join you. You will first need to Register and create a "My Cruise" account. You could also post on sites like Cruise Critic or FaceBook.
- Collection from and return back to the cruise ship or your hotel
- Your own driver/guide
- Any destination or activity charges, but you may book these on our web site under the "Experiences" section.
- Any meals
- Please tell us what you what to do and where you want to visit if you can when booking a private tour vehicle, we can then prepare and agree with you the itinerary for the day.
- Note that the seating capacity will be reduced by 1 if you book an additional guide or a foreign language guide.
- We allow for a maximum of 400 kms in an 8 hour day. For tours longer than this there is a $1.00 per kilometer excess charge. Most destinations you will want to visit would be inside this limit. Itineraries can be discussed in advance if you are not sure what is possible in the time frame.
