New Zealand Vacations: Fjords & Forests

New Zealand is a land of lush forests, glacier-covered peaks, and beautiful beaches. Travel for the scenery, and explore the charming cities—from Auckland in the north to Wellington and Christchurch in the south. Lord of the Rings fans can discover the natural setting where the movies were filmed. Enjoy a warm Māori welcome and visit a marae—a Māori meeting place—where you can watch a war dance and learn about Māori art and culture. Visit a winery, take a scenic hike through a breathtaking national park, or find a beach to call your own with the help of your Liberty Travel vacation consultant.

New Zealand: Best of the North Island

This tour was INCREDIBLE! Our mandatory fun activities were incredible and pushed me to do things I wouldn't otherwise (surfing). Our CEO, Rachel, made booking the extra activities super easy (Tubing with the glowworms was the best). Rachel was phenomenal and gave us fun facts as we drove into the different cities, showed us great places to eat, and was overall a wonderful person to tour North Island with.

Highlights of New Zealand Tour

Highlights of New Zealand

Our G Adventures tour in New Zealand (“Highlights of New Zealand”) was super - the itinerary, accommodations, the guide, the number of places we were able to visit, the NZ folks we met (warm, helpful, kind, happy people) and we hope to come back to NZ to do more exploring! The tour was a small group of 15 with 1 guide, and it was a great group with just the right number of participants. We felt the prices were very reasonable and we were WELL taken care of by GAdventures. We will definitely look to this tour company for future trips.

Coasts & Culture Tour

Had a fantastic time! There are so many extra activities to choose from. Unfortunately, the weather didn’t cooperate the entire time so some activities were cancelled. Not much that can be done about that. The Māori cultural stay was probably my favourite stop. So much fun and learnt to much. Also shout out to Cal our guide who was great!

South Island Lick Tour Tour

South Island Lick Tour

It was a well organized tour.I did not feel rushed. We visited the most scenic parts of South Island. The Tour Leader, Daniel was a very good Tour Leader looking after everybody and making sure everyone doesn’t miss the optional excursions . He worked hard , driving long distance and showing us places in the itinerary. He was good to me especially when I had the colds, in Franz Joseph he made kiwi tea for me 2x. He was also kind enough to offer his room so I can rest well, and not to spread the virus to others with no additional charge . Being a solo traveller and at 60 years old, I was not left out. In fact I felt everybody was looking after me.. It was a good group and the Tour is unforgettable .

New Zealand Tour Reviews

My group was phenomenal, we all had a blast together. Our guide was very communicative, using WhatsApp and a photo circle to share information, resources and photos. I’m not used to hopping hostels, so that was a bit rough, definitively pack light and try to be organized. I should have done a better job researching temperature as well - as it got much colder than I was expecting. Overall the trip was incredible and I did everything I wanted to do.
Fantastic guide, beautiful country.
Everyday was different. A well planned out tour giving a rich experience. You want to know what Maori culture is in a short time? This is it!!!!!!
