Travel is refreshing for the mind and soul. When you travel to new places, you learn about people, places, and customs that are different from your own. But our experiences also teach us who we are. Maybe it’s the beautiful natural landscapes, or quaint towns that rest beside a mountain, but New Zealand is one of the places I’ve visited that have given me a better sense of myself. It’s a country at the top of the list for many travelers, and it’s not hard to see why.
The aquamarine waters, vibrant flowers, blinding snow-covered peaks, shimmering lights of active nightlife, the fjords—it’s simple to say that the islands of New Zealand are spectacular. The landscapes are as varied as is its weather, and if you truly want to enjoy each of the seasons, there’s no better place to do just that.
The best way to experience a country is not from the air conditioned confines of a hotel room or quick forays to the “must-see places”. The ideal way to enjoy a new place is to have locals or guides show you around, as they are probably far more familiar with the country and its stories than you are. Whether it’s a one-on-one tour of a Auckland, or a casual meetup with locals at the beach, or a private guided tour on New Zealand’s gorgeous mountains, you’ll have plenty of options to see all the sites and sounds you never knew existed. No matter how many people are in your group and how long your stay is, you can rest assured that a guided experience is the way to go.
Think about a guided tour if:
- You are keen for an authentic experience, and not just something to brag about on social media (though you can do that too!)
- If you’re interested in the history and culture of the country and need to know as much as you can about the sites you visit
- If you want the comfort of knowing that all details have been taken care of before you leave the safety of your own home
- If you want the insider, not visitor experience
What you get with a guided tour of New Zealand
The guide who will conduct the tour is an expert and an insider. Who better to show you the country’s hidden gems and share their inside knowledge of this new country? You might discover the best lolly cake in town or authentic Maori restaurant off the beaten path. There’s also plenty of little-known nightlife you may get to explore. Your guide will open up a whole new world of experiences for you, from hidden beaches to the best bird’s eye view.
A clean safe space to rest and recuperate is a mandatory necessity for most travelers—especially after an activity-filled day! A guided tour will take care of this for you and give you convenient stay options that suit your lifestyle and budget requirements.
Most travel is a “one size fits all” ride, but not a guided tour. Depending on what you like to do, your holiday can be designed to give you the maximum of everything you’re looking for—culture, sports, wildlife, nature, adventure, and tons more. With all these options to choose from, you’re sure to find something that works for you.
Travelling with young children can be stressful and overwhelming. But a tour that is family-focused takes care of all the little details needed to give you and your little ones an experience to remember.
