What is a Privately Charted Tour?

New Zealand Private TouringPrivate Touring
Relaxing Journeys have a selection of exciting privately guided tours designed specifically for couples and small groups who wish to experience the splendour of New Zealand and its surrounds at a leisurely stress free pace. Our tours are professionally guided, intimate, relaxing and safe.

Customised To Suit
Our private tour itineraries provide you with an immersive 'kiwi' experience, however due to their 'private' nature, itineraries can be amended and tweaked to suit your particular requirements, often at no additional cost. Transfers to and from the airport are often possible and we can arrange pre & post tour accommodation if you wish to extend your tour into a longer NZ experience.

Travel in Comfort & Style
Whilst individual vehicles vary according to the private tour you choose, they all feature seating designed for comfortable touring and seatbelts, large panoramic windows & air-conditioning. All our touring vehicles are maintained to the highest standards and boast the very latest safety features. But the biggest benefit of all is that they can take you to many places the big tour coaches can’t.

Friendly, Professional Tour Hosts
Our guides are passionate about their country and love nothing more than showing it off to travellers from across the world. Every custom tour is fully accompanied by a tour host who will ensure every aspect of your holiday runs smoothly, provide you with friendly advice and give you a fresh insight into our country. They’re only too happy to go that extra mile to make sure you have the holiday you want. European language speaking guides and driver/guides are also availble on some tours.

Daily Departures
Our private Tours operate daily providing you with excellent flexibility when planning your tour start date to coincide with your flights or other holiday arrangements.

Kiwi Flavour
Our unique private touring itineraries have been designed by kiwi's to showcase our country and regions at their best, and include activities and sightseeing opportunities that overseas agents & operators won't even know about.

1 Day Auckland City Sights (Privately Chartered Tour)

Our tour with driver Peter was wonderful. He was most attentive to all our needs, even running overtime as we were having so much fun! Peter was most informative about all aspects of Auckland. It was so nice to have such personalised service after being part of a crowd on board the cruise ship excursions. Please thank him once again on our behalf.

1 Day Auckland : Waitomo : Rotorua : Auckland (Privately Chartered Tour)

We had a wonderful time with Kerry on our tour to Waitomo & Rotorua. He was waiting for us at 7am in front of our hotel and we had a nice view of the countryside on our way to Waitomo. My husband has an interest in horticulture and Kerry was very knowledgeable about the trees and plants. We arrived just in time for the 1st tour of the glow worm caves and we got to see a glow worm snag a moth!! After the tour we were off to Rotorua. Even though the weather was a bit rainy we stopped at lots of interesting places and had a most delicious lunch. We ended out tour at the Agrodome, just in time for the last show of the day. Perfect planning on Kerry's part! On the way home, Kerry took a quick side trip to Hobbitton after hearing that we were planning a Lord of the Rings tour the next week. We arrived back in Auckland just after sunset. A warm thank you to Kerry for a great day full of sights, but we never felt rushed. Just a fun and relaxed day.


1 Day Auckland : Rotorua : Auckland (Privately Chartered Tour)

We loved the service of our drivers both in Auckland and Christchurch! Everything went well and we are glad we booked with you guys! The service of Craig was good as well, answering all my queries even if this meant overtime for him due to my last minute bookings! More power to you guys and keep up the great work.
