Consider this your introduction to New Zealand. The great thing about this tour is that you can build in many optional activities (additional expense) or simply take yourself off for a hike or a contemplative afternoon in a park or on the beach at no cost.

Our itinerary is based on travel from October to early May. For the rest of the year the tour may need to adapt slightly. We can check at the time of booking how that might affect your trip, if at all.
