Our holidays to New Zealand are anything but ‘run-of-the-mill’, as you will enjoy an array of spectacular experiences, such as a journey on the TranzAlpine across the Southern Alps. We also take you beyond the usual tourist veneer to offer an authentic insight into local customs. In the Bay of Islands a Maori guide will share the history of the Bay and their family past.
We pride ourselves on our fully-inclusive tours to New Zealand. Unlike other operators that charge additional fees for ‘optional’ tours and meals, you have very little extra to pay once you leave the UK. All excursions on our New Zealand holidays are included in the price, along with a daily breakfast, several other meals, accommodation and all tips.
For your assurance, Scenic Tours is a highly experienced and respected tour operator, giving you the peace of mind that a tour to New Zealand with Scenic Tours is truly exceptional. When you book your holiday with us, you can be confident in the knowledge that at each destination throughout your trip, you’ll be looked after by those who know the country best.
We handpick all of our accommodation. Whether you’re staying in the heart of the city like Sofitel Viaduct Harbour in Auckland - or in a secluded resort like Te Waonui Forest Retreat located amongst many natural wonders including mountains and glaciers – we’ve chosen all your accommodation to ensure you have the best experience possible.
As an award-winning operator of luxury touring holidays, our main aim is to offer the ultimate travel experience in New Zealand and Australia, as well as other destinations all over the world. This philosophy has seen us win numerous awards including a British Travel Award for ‘Best Small Escorted Tour Operator’ and 'Best Escorted Tour Operator to Australasia'.
During your holiday in New Zealand, you’ll enjoy many delicious dining experiences. These range from a home cooked roast lamb meal at Longlands Homestead – to a cruise onboard TSS Earnslaw and dinner at Walter Peak High Country Station. You’ll also get the chance to enjoy a traditional hangi show serving authentic Maori cuisine in Tamaki Village.
With our Scenic FreeChoiceprogramme you can personalise your touring experience to suit you. Feeling adventurous? We offer a range of exhilarating activities, like the chance to channel your inner captain as you sail an America’s Cup yacht in Auckland. Or in Rotoura, you can pamper yourself and relax in the therapeutic waters at the Polynesian Day Spa.
Spectacular and inspiring experiences
Our New Zealand tours are packed with a range of unforgettable experiences, many of which are exclusive to Scenic Tours: from private dining in an award-winning Hawkes Bay winery and a jet boat ride on the mighty Haast River, to activities that are included in our Scenic FreeChoice programme, such as America’s Cup sailing or a relaxing day in a Polynesian Spa.
In addition to these many remarkable experiences, our Scenic Enrich programme offers an exclusive range of additional activities that take you one step further, and enable you to experience a destination in a spectacular fashion or to truly immerse yourself in unique local cultures and to be part of the experience rather than simply being an observer.
In addition to everything that is included in the price of a Scenic Tours holiday to New Zealand, we offer you the opportunity to tailor your touring experience to suit yo - at no extra cost. From the flexibility that comes with a choice of airline on and included three night outbound stopover on all our New Zealand tours, to our extensive range of flexible excursions, and a selection of dining options at many destinations.
