Coronavirus - Covid-19 Pandemic

Firstly and most importantly, we hope you are and your family are all safe and well and we wish you all the best over these difficult times.

In view of the well documented implications of the unprecedented worldwide Coronavirus pandemic, we want to reassure you that that the safety and well-being of all of our touring groups is very important to us and that we are closely monitoring advice from the Government, Foreign & Commonwealth Office and ABTA.

We have been dealing with the repatriation of clients stuck in Spain and are supporting our staff who are in self isolation.

Our office is now in full lockdown and we have very limited email access but those who are able to work are working around the clock to ensure that we can assist our customers with the most urgent needs and our goal is to ensure that anyone due to travel in the next seven days has been updated on their tour and given a list of options available to them, we will not however have the resources to enter into conversations over these options at this stage.

We will continue to contact tour organisers whose travel plans have been effected.

Best wishes at what is a difficult time for us all and thanks for your understanding,

Tour Destinations in New Zealand

Auckland, New Zealand’s largest city and formerly it’s capital, is situated between two enormous harbours and dotted with 48 extinct volcano cones.  It is a beautiful, open and cosmopolitan city as well as the country’s principal international gateway.  Auckland has a rich Polynesian heritage, and you will notice the passion for outstanding food, wine and shopping.  The Aucklander’s passion for boats has earned it the nickname, City of Sails, and indeed the harbour and the many boats within it play an important role in the city’s life.

Rotorua is one of New Zealand’s most famous tourist destinations and is best known for its Geothermal activity, sitting squarely on the Pacific Ring of Fire.  Activities and attractions abound, with something to satisfy everyone, from sightseeing to Adrenalin pumping action.   Visitors can get up close and personal with New Zealand farm life, walk through geothermal hotspots or have a thrilling 4WD experience through native bush. Rotorua is also the heartland of New Zealand's Maori culture, and visitors can enjoy a performance of song and dance, followed by food cooked in a traditional hangi (earthen oven).

Wellington, New Zealand’s capital, is a compact city, nestled between the spectacular harbour and encircled by towering green hills.  Vibrant, exciting and cultured, there is a rich political history within Wellington, and dance, theatre and musical performances are a speciality.  This combined with the attractions and activities on offer in the surrounding regions will make for a memorable touring experience.

Christchurch is the largest city in the South Island and the second largest city in New Zealand.  It is the hub of the stunning Canterbury region and is a city is alive with colour, atmosphere and world-class attractions.  Situated in the middle of New Zealand’s rugby heartland, Christchurch’s mix of Old English architecture and cutting Edge design will prove a fitting finale to your tour.
