About The Road Trip

Our Story

Inspired & Passionate Travellers

At The Road Trip our philosophy is to go out of our way to make our guests comfortable and happy. From the minute you make contact with us up until the end of your memorable private New Zealand tour. We always endeavour to drive you to the best possible scenic spots and always recommend and organise only the best activities along the way.

Because this is your tour however, you have the freedom to choose what you want to do during the day without being on a fixed itinerary such as on a large coach trip. Let me welcome you on ‘The Road Trip’ of a lifetime.

Guiding New Zealand tours is not just a business for me, it is a way of life. Ever since I was 13 years old, I have been designing itineraries for typical New Zealand tours with families and friends, be it at the bach on the beach for a week long trip, in the mountains or a simple day trip to the french village of Akaroa, part of the fun was in the planning.


Our Values

Journeys worth taking

When the opportunity arose for me to start guiding our New Zealand tours for people from various nationalities and all walks of life, I jumped at the opportunity.

I believe that it is always the little extras that go a long way in making my clients’ experience one that they will always remember.

I started The Road Trip after years of guiding tours in New Zealand, France and the UK and learning as much as possible along the way about what really makes a positive impact on customers. With a passion for nature and the outdoors, I believe in seeing not only the highlights of a country but also the hard to find back country spots that not many others know about. My country is like a large box of treasure but the beauty is in seeking out what would otherwise be hidden on a typical tourist map.

I look forward to meeting you!
