Great New Zealand Discovery

Doubtful Sound, New Zealand

Escorted Group Tours

Covering the ‘Land of the Long White Cloud’ from top to bottom, this New Zealand itinerary includes all the best bits of both islands. There’s whale watching, wine tasting and fiord cruising, plus opportunities to get a real insight into Maori culture, as we make our way from Christchurch up to Auckland. Uncover the Scottish heritage of Dunedin (gateway to the wildlife-filled Otago Peninsula), admire Napier’s art deco architecture, and sip flat whites in the artisan coffee shops of Wellington and Auckland. As New Zealand escorted tours go, this one is truly comprehensive.
