Our Style


We know that the modern traveller likes to have surety of a tour  framework but also the flexibility to do their own thing. So yes, you do have the opportunity to explore on your own, or have that special meal or even relax with time to yourself. It’s all part of the rich tapestry of travel.


Inclusive & Social

We keep our groups small and open to all; couples, friends & solo adventurers – everyone is welcome. There are regular social events to which everyone is invited.


English Speaking Guides

Even when we are in those off the beaten track places, you will be happy to know that our local guides speak English. And of course all tours are escorted by our very own kiwi tour leaders who will help make things clear. We also own the “Whisper’ system of communication to make it easier to hear the guides and look around.



In every interaction with you we work hard to be honest and transparent. There are no hidden costs, no unexpected financial surprises and what is written as part of the tour, we will do our up-most to deliver. Also when we are overseas we want your interaction with the local people and wildlife to be as authentic as possible. So forget the multiple tourist shops and mass-produced meals, we will endeavour to get up-close and personal with the real thing.
