New Zealand Tours and Australian Stopovers: Free Up-Front Help

Specialized New Zealand Tours:  Golf  |  Wine  |  Fly Fishing  |  Adventure  |  Scuba  |  Singles 18-35

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.

CUSTOM SELF-DRIVE TOURS.

We are pleased to assist you with your own customized self-drive tour. We will research and run your airline tickets, arrange accommodations, take care of car, camper, motor home, or van rentals, book rail and/or ferry travel, and book or provide information to you for the wide range of activities and special events in Australia and New Zealand. We will work with you to meet your budget, be it affordable, moderate, or deluxe. And best of all, there are no up-front service charges until the initial planning is done and agreed-to by you.

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. Experience the “hands-on” visit with kangaroos and koalas. Take a side trip to Cairns/Port Douglas to explore the Great Barrier Reef and the Aborigine Cultural Center.

SPECIALTY TOURS.

Do you have a particular hobby you would like to focus on during your New Zealand and/or Australia vacation ? Check out our separate pages for golf, wine, adventure, age 18-35, or scuba diving – specialty tour alternatives. We can help you combine your custom tour with your special focused interest, and are glad to research possibilities on your behalf, whatever your hobby or favorite activity.


GUIDED TOURS

Do you just want to sit back and let others do the driving while you relax, watch the scenery, engage in pre-planned activities, and receive expert descriptions of the New Zealand and/or Australia culture, geography, landmarks, and history? We can make arrangements on your behalf with any number of guided tour wholesalers, combining their particular offerings with your own unique pre- or post-tour desires when appropriate. Let us help you select among the myriad of options and prices to choose the memorable vacation that fits your budget.

NEW ZEALAND/AUSTRALIA AIRFARE.

We will research the various New Zealand and Australia airfare sources, including our Computer Reservation System, airline web sites, the internet, tour company packages, and wholesalers to find the lowest available price for you. Minimizing the airfare allows more funds to be available for your tour activities. We can quote airfares alone as well as part of tours or self-drive packages.

AND…OUR SERVICES ARE FREE TO YOU!

We are paid by the suppliers…so we help you plan and execute your trip as a free service. We will make all arrangements…air, car, hotel, bnbs, farmstays, and activities for you.
