Imagine having a guide with an intimate knowledge of New Zealand.
Becoming your friend, I will lead you on an exclusive 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”
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.
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.

PS; In the twenty years Tailored Travel New Zealand Custom Tours has been operating now, the cliché’s of "going the extra mile and exceeding expectations" are just the norm.
Comments like "we could never had done this by ourselves, the people and places you found were unique and exceptional" and "we did not want the tour to end" are common extension to the first mentioned comments.
Charley and Barbara said
“Traveling with Robert of Tailored Travel surpassed our expectations. He developed an itinerary unique to us, which we could not have done in a group or on our own. He was very knowledgeable and supplemented his extensive knowledge by doing ‘homework/ research’ during the evening in several cases making the trip extremely educational and rewarding. We understand and appreciate New Zealand in a way that would not have been possible without Tailored Travel. In addition, Robert was always there when we needed him, but also gave us time on our own and was never intrusive. A very compatible fellow traveler!”
“We had a spectacular time on our trip with you. A couple of things stand out;
- You provided just the right balance of availability to be with us and importantly for us to be by ourselves. The flexibility and sensitivity were notable.
- We appreciated the ‘homework’ you did several evenings on subjects that interested us-like the power plant near Doubtful Sound
- The accommodations you selected were great, nice knowledgeable people and great locations.
- The food was uniformly excellent.”
