Partnership

We’re excited to let you know that we have partnered with MoaTours, one of New Zealand’s leading and most trusted local tour operators since 1971. MoaTours offers a range of small group tours all over New Zealand that we think you’ll love — from Cape Reinga to Stewart Island.  

A a family run business just like Tours Direct, MoaTours has great connections and unbeatable local knowledge of New Zealand’s best kept secrets. They also share common values so we know you will be well looked after and have a great experience.

With some of the best seats in the house to enjoy the World of WearableArt Awards Show from and private lunches with wonderful hosts along the way, I can’t think of a better way to celebrate spring. It’s an irresistible combination and our clients agree – many return to travel on this tour a second and third time.
