New Zealand Road Trips and Self Drive Tours

Welcome to The Road Trip – We specialise in personalised, private tours of New Zealand, the unspoilt ‘Paradise on Earth’ that offers an incredible diversity of attractions, from breathtaking scenery and traditional Maori culture to skydiving and kayaking – the choice is yours. All our custom tours are private and exclusive to your group only, meaning that this is your tour, done your way.

While we offer a selection of sample tours to whet your appetite, our New Zealand road trips are tailored to your specific requests and we can create a once in a lifetime exclusive experience that is unique to you and your party. Have a browse through our site, read some of our client testimonials and if you have any question don’t hesitate to get in touch via the contact form.

The service that we provide is a private luxury tour service, not a large group tour. Other than our friendly tour staff you will not be sharing your tour with anyone outside of your own party so you can rest assured that this is your tour and we’ll do exactly what you want to make it your perfect trip.
