Imagine having a personal 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 all inclusive vacation 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 customized tour.
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 yogurt. You tell your hosts about last night’s dinner, the (locally raised) 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 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 privately guided tour to four people (only you and perhaps your traveling friends or family). That’s guaranteed.

PS; In the twenty three 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.

Dear Robert, just as we have exhausted our supply of superlatives for your beautiful country and its inhabitants, so too are we at a loss of words to express our gratitude for your extraordinary “care and feeding’ of us during our journey in NZ. We will simply say thank you form the bottom of our hearts for your service, your good humor, your knowledge and your patience, and all the seamless adjustments that made our enjoyment ever more special. We shall miss your companionship.
