"Dear Geoff,

Thank you for taking time with us today when calling - we really appreciated it.  It can be a bit of a scary thing traveling halfway across the world, but you have made this a wonderful experience so far and we've not even set foot in your amazing Country. 

I just wanted you to know that your down to earth style and patience have been so important and quite honestly I felt we sort of clicked well together the very first time on the phone. 

We felt you listened to us and actually heard what we were saying, something others didn't seem to be able to master, lol. 

Any way I just wanted you to know how much we appreciate your guidance and assistance as we plan the trip of a lifetime. 

You are why we are booking with Real New Zealand Tours."

Mike and Ellen,

Lincoln, U.S.A.

Auckland City
Auckland city, 2 harbours, 20 extinct volcanoes and is New Zealand's largest city with a population of approximately 1.4 million. Auckland is often called "City of Sails".
Unique Maori Culture
Maori makeup 16% of New Zealand's total population and live mainly in the top half of the North Island because of the warmer climate.
Natural Moeraki Boulders
Moeraki boulders just south of Oamaru are truly fascinating. Stroll along a lovely peaceful South Pacific ocean beach and explore these large circular boulders. Great photo opportunities.
Wildlife Up Close In Kaikoura
New Zealand has many large Seal colonies around it's 15,000 km/12,000 mile long coastline. Playful and fun to watch but do not get too close, they bite!
Adventure In Cathedral Cove
Kayaking is very popular and fun in New Zealand particularly around the stunning Coromandel Peninsula in the North Island and in the South Island the beautiful Abel Tasman National park.
Lord of the Rings and Hobbiton, Middle Earth
Experience Sir Peter Jackson's magic first hand, visit the original film set for our world-famous Hobbiton epic. The farm setting near Matamata in the central North Island is truly special, a "must see" attraction.
Franz Josef Glacier
Franz Josef glacier always spectacular in all its majestic glory. It is rare anywhere in the world where major glaciers are so close to any ocean and so accessible. An exciting option is a full day glacier hike, then a relaxing soak in hot pools.
Outstanding Food and Wine
New Zealand's wines are world famous, our most prominent regions being Marlborough, Hawkes Bay, and Central Otago. Peter Yealands' Seaview winery is claimed to be the world's most environmentally friendly and sustainable winery.
