New Zealand all-inclusive vacation and special interest
New Zealand is a country with great accessible diversity, so you will experience a balance of the land, the culture and our people when you travel with us on a genuine all-inclusive small guided tour. I do recommend at least 15 days on the south island to take advantage of the essential and unique New Zealand scenery.
Several SPECIAL INTEREST activities /experiences are included if you choose to do so;
- Emphasizing the variety of our wine regions, for those who are into wine there are ample sample options and we will take you behind the scenes at a small boutique winery as well as introduce you to the well-known.
- Wilderness impressions are all along the way, LOTR landscapes and all.
- You will have walking options in several national parks (which are free in New Zealand )
- An overnight trip on Doubtful Sound where you may encounter dolphins, penguins and other wildlife is also part of your travel schedule.
- A cultural Maori experience and a wildlife / bird park (Kiwi bird) to introduce you to our culture
These activities are all-inclusive in your guided custom vacation without losing our focus and objective of a balanced travel experience.
Non included optional extra activities, for which we allow time can be whale watching, scenic helicopter flights, jet boat rides or bungy jumping and if you wish to play a round of golf or go fishing, up to a day can be set aside to accommodate this activity.
For people attending a conference or are planning to stay at a specific lodge to go hunting, we can create your pre or post activity custom tour.
Your complete package will include your expert guide, all ground transportation, all meals and all luxury accommodation. Your professional and personal guide will be with you from pick up at the airport until you board your plane to return home. All along the way we provide you with a travel package including maps, brochures, day sheets and any other relevant information so you know the special details of the places and people you visit. Before you leave home, you will receive a package with general information, including the weather, packing, etc. Tailored Travel offers guests Security, Quality, Trustworthiness, Safety, and Friendliness.

Custom Tours was an investment in a “once in a lifetime” vacation to a truly magical country. Robert provided us with accommodations, restaurants, as well as sites and activities that consistently exceeded our expectations. His knowledge of the country, that he is quite proud of, allowed us to see more, do more, and compress more into the time that we were in New Zealand.
We have never done a group tour let alone a personal guided tour on previous vacations so we were somewhat apprehensive in advance of our trip. Rather quickly we realized that we hit it off with Robert and that the personal guided tour was a good decision. I agree with other customers that state “I wish there where Roberts in the rest of the world”. Robert is flexible, willing to do what you want to do, give you the space to enjoy, and then step in and arrange activities that he knows will be memorable.
Driving in New Zealand is hard, as most roads are two lanes, (bridges are one), and the sites are so fantastic that making time is very difficult. Having Robert do the driving allowed us to sit back and enjoy the ride! Our time in the Marlborough and Otago wine districts was great as Robert did the driving and we enjoyed the tastings. His love and knowledge of the great Pinot Noirs of New Zealand got us to the right vineyards and assured that each dinner was capped off with a great wine selection.
Going through the held mail upon our return we found a National Geographic Traveler magazine, which ironically rated the South island of New Zealand number 3 out of 135 worldwide destinations. It was obvious to us had the authors of this article retained Robert, New Zealand would have been number 1!
