New Zealand Tours and Australian Stopovers: Free Up-Front Help
New Zealand – a beautiful, pristine country – the population density is very low — one third of all inhabitants live in Auckland, so as you tour the countryside, you see miles upon miles of natural, undisturbed land, or miles of ocean beach. There are great mountains, wide beaches, friendly people, and many natural wonders.
New Zealand is a highly developed, stable democracy with a modern economy and widely available tourist facilities. The country’s population is about 3.8 million, mostly of European descent. The indigenous people, the Maori comprise 15% of the people and are of Polynesian origin, having come to New Zealand in a series of migrations about 1000 years ago. Crime is low, weather mild, and water safe. At latitudes between 35 and 48 degrees south, it is the southern hemisphere equivalent of Northern California.
And be sure to consider a stop-over in Australia as part of your New Zealand vacation. Take advantage of the stop-over discounts in airfares, and take a few days to explore the ambiance and cultural identity of Australia to reinforce your vacation experience.

We are pleased to assist you with your own customized self-drive tour.

AUSTRALIA TOURS AND STOP OVERS.
Why not stop over in Australia as part of your New Zealand vacation? Visit Sydney and see the Opera House, Darling Harbour, and the Blue Mountains.
