    We know that booking an overseas holiday is a big undertaking and can be stressful. With so many things to fit into what can often be a short amount of time, we aim to take the worry out of organising your holiday itinerary.
    As seasoned travellers, we have shared many experiences on our extensive trips around the world. We have designed New Zealand Private Tours to embrace all the things we love about travel. We are Queenstown locals with a depth of knowledge that we'd love to share with you - from fantastic views to local cuisine, fine wine and adrenaline-pumping experiences.
  • We can provide you with a personlised itinerary that will ensure you tick all your must-see's and -do's off your holiday list.
    Simply contact us, advise us of your specific interests, size of group and anticipated dates of travel and we'll tailor a specific itinerary to suit your needs leaving you to enjoy your holiday without any of the worry.
    We hope to share our love of New Zealand with you soon.

  • Kathy

    Kathy is the happy-go-lucky Aussie gal who married the Kiwi lad (on the right) and promptly fell in love with New Zealand too. Her devotion to skiing, track walking and nature's beauty drew her to the charms of Queenstown, which she and Wayne and their two children now call home.

  • Wayne

    Wayne is a good Kiwi lad, born and bred in the South Island city of Invercargill. His passion for New Zealand is infectious as he interweaves stories and facts on tour. As past President of the Queenstown Photography Club, Wayne understands the magic of capturing history and nature through the eyes and the lens.
