We understand that plans change and unforeseen circumstances can arise and we have a very fair cancelation policy. Depending on if you have paid only the deposit or the full payment and how soon you let us know prior to your departure date then we are able to refund a significant part of your deposit or full payment.

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.
We use a range of spacious comfortable late model vehicles including mid-size SUVs (Toyota Rav4, Hyundai Tuscon etc) and large SUVs (Skoda Kodiaq, Toyota Highlander, Toyota Prado etc), 8 seater vans (Ford Tourneo, Mercedes Valente etc) and 12-17 seater Mercedes Sprinters or Toyota Hi-Ace. We can also charter buses for larger groups. Vehicles depend on group size and preference and we can quote on a range of different options for you, including high spec luxury vehicles.
All of our accommodation is carefully selected based on 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.
We can quote you on a range of different accommodation, include providers you may wish to stay with, quote on bed and breakfast/homestay style accommodation as opposed to hotel, quote on luxury lodges for some or all of your trip and we can book a mix of 4 star and 5 star accommodation or perhaps throw in a couple of nights of luxury in amongst an itinerary with more affordable accommodation included throughout.
We appreciate knowing as much about your preferred accommodation as possible during the booking process. When we prepare an itinerary we will list the accommodation providers we suggest and you are free to research the options and let us know if you like the accommodation. In the event that something is not available on the nights chosen, we will choose a similar accommodation provider.

Absolutely. This can be done upon booking or with your guide whilst on tour.
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.
