Are your private New Zealand tours both north and south island?
Yes we take both South Island Tours, North Island Tours and tours that combine both North and South Island. Each tour is driven and guided by one of our professional driver/guides.
What sort of vehicles do you use?
We use a range of spacious comfortable modern vehicles from group RV 4wd’s (great for accessing those back country spots and walking tracks), Toyota Estima luxury 8 seater people movers and Toyota Hi Ace or similar vehicles for groups up to 12 people. It all depends on group size and preference. We also use lockable luggage trailers for larger groups.
How do you select accommodation?
All of our accommodation has been carefully selected in each category (Bronze, Silver and Gold) according to criteria of: Great location, standard and cleanliness of rooms, amenities, service and friendliness of the staff and providers. We always endeavour to keep strong relationships with our accommodation providers.
Do you run your New Zealand tours all year round?
Yes certainly. Our busy season is between October and April (spring/summer) although as New Zealand is such a popular destination in all seasons the tours can run all year round.
Are all tours private?
Yes. At The Road Trip all of our New Zealand tours are private tours and are for your group only whatever size it may be. This is your trip done your way!
Does the per person cost of a tour decrease for groups of four or more?
Yes. The overall per person cost decreases substantially for groups of four or more.
Do you book optional activities?
Absolutely. This can be done upon booking or with your guide whilst on tour.
How far in advance should I book?
You can book whenever you like as they are private tours so run upon your request. Although during high season(Dec, Jan, Feb) it is strongly recommended to book at least 60 days in advance in order to secure preferred accommodation. For tours booked 30 days in advance or less, full payment must be taken at time of booking.
Do you run Private New Zealand Tours for corporate groups?
Yes we do and we will be able to arrange special corporate rates upon enquiry.
