Imagine having a guide with an intimate knowledge of New Zealand.

I design exclusive personal guided New Zealand vacation tours for 2-4 people, created and custom made for you. Special luxury guided New Zealand tours are planned to encompass your individual interests from wine and cuisine to short nature walks and Maori cultural events.

Becoming your friend, I will lead you on a personal, perfect journey though our magnificent country on your New Zealand escorted private tour.

You can be assured of knowing New Zealand not just seeing it, because I will create a careful balance of culture, natural scenery and people for you with a distinctive identity.

Savor gourmet meals of fresh local produce and wine; relax in the luxury of boutique bed and breakfast lodges. Everything you see and do will be at your pace and leisure on your escorted private tour.

Kia Ora (Greetings),

New Zealand beckons you with vast horizons, extraordinary mountain ranges and stunning coastlines.
In an area the size of Colorado, glaciers grind to a halt at the roots of subtropical rain forests. 30 million sheep graze in verdant pastures. South Pacific waves lap golden beaches. And a friendly population of only 4 million people lives in harmony with the magnificent environment that sustains and inspires. New Zealand was the last country in the world to be discovered and settled by humankind; hence we are the "Youngest Country on Earth"

New Zealand sheepNew Zealand has an extraordinary variety of accessible scenery; There is the dry desert like tussock grass lands, subtropical rainforests, glaciers and swamps all in a 'short' distance. Grey and golden sandy beaches and quaint towns as well as metropolitan cities.

That's New Zealand, waiting for you!

Your New Zealand small vacation tour will be completely planned and arranged with my extensive expertise and experience. YOUR specific interests and input will make it a truly unique and personal vacation.

As the sun and bird songs greet you in the morning, after resting comfortably in your luxury suite with views of the ocean, bush or mountains (no TV. can beat that!), you enjoy your home made breakfast, with fresh fruit, croissants, bacon and eggs, pancakes or muesli and yoghurt. You tell your hosts about last night’s dinner, the (locally grown) rack of lamb with a tantalizing finish, capped off with a crème Brule and complemented by a local Pinot Noir.
Leisurely you travel to the next vacation destination, have a private appointment with a local painter in his studio and chat with the local winemaker in his ‘lab’. A few short walks and many photos later, you are engaged in a question and answer time with your Maori host about our cultures.

Maori culture:

As our guests you will get a Maori introduction, stay in lodges owned / operated by Maori hosts, take (optional) Maori heritage tour as well as visiting historic Maori museum displays.

For you to know New Zealand rather than just see it, I limit each exclusive guided tour to four people (only you and perhaps your traveling friends or family). That’s guaranteed.

Sustainable / environmental:

I am aiming to continually improve and promote the environmental, social, cultural and economic sustainability of tourism in New Zealand.


Tailored Travel has been recognized by New Zealandís tourismís independent body for our quality and trustworthiness and has also achieved sustainable / environmental accreditation for over ten years.
