WHAT IS A PRIVATELY CHARTERED TOUR?

Private 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.

We had a few hours between getting off cruise ship and flying to the United States. This tour gave us a feeling that we had seen Auckland and lots of beautiful sights. The Winter Garden and Military Museum were perfect, as it started to rain some. My husband loves military things, so this was a pleasant surprise.

We thank our tour guide Kerry, who not only drove us to the sights - but explained us country and people. We were thrilled that Kerry "read" our wishes and responded flexibly to any changes made (we saw a Hundertwasser sign on the roadside and Kerry quickly showed us these buildings). We had an impressive day and would book a tour again and again.

We had a breadth of experiences over the 2 days - from Waitomo to Rotorua to Hobbiton - and it was an amazing insight into what the North Island had to offer. Kerry, our guide, was knowledgeable and professional, with safety foremost in his mind.

We really enjoyed our tour and Kerry was great. Unfortunately the heating in the van wasn't working so I was cold most of the day! Also thought if the tickets were prearranged this would have saved time at particular venues. Apart from those minor things we were impressed overall with the day.

We had a limited amount of time and our guide was very good about making sure we saw everything we could see in that time. He was very well informed about the culture, history and we thoroughly enjoyed our trip. A very good value for our money and highly recommended.
