New Zealand Private Tours

New Zealand tours, New Zealand private tours, personal tours, ToursByLocals
It's hard to imagine a more inviting travel destination than New Zealand. Although a small country, it overflows with unique, unforgettable scenery.

Explore the North and South Islands on our New Zealand tours with friendly local guides, and in the space of a few days you can visit glaciers, fjords, beaches, mountains, geysers and volcanoes - learning about indigenous Maori culture along the way.

In Fiordland's Milford Sound, gaze at the sheer cliffs plunging into still green water, as playful dolphins swim alongside your boat. Strap on crampons with your guide and walk across the Fox Glacier, or spend a day kayaking around the golden beaches of stunning Abel Tasman National Park. For a truly unique Kiwi experience, ask your guide for a shovel and head to Hot Water Beach, where you can dig your own hot spring pool mere inches from the surf!

There is so much to do on a New Zealand tour. Your local guide would love to help you customize an itinerary that will ensure you have the trip
Tour Guide Legal Requirements
In New Zealand there is no requirement for a guide to have a license to give tours.

However, if the tour guide is also the driver, then they are required to hold a Passenger Service License and have a Private Hire Registration.

The driver must hold a Passenger Endorsement and must also complete a log book, and must record all work time. Drivers must not exceed the allowable work time.

The vehicle must hold a Certificate of fitness (CoF)

Some rental vehicles are not suitable as Passenger Service vehicles due to the narrow aisle space, seating arrangements and lack of cargo barriers. Most rental company contracts forbid the vehicle being used in a passenger service. report error

All ToursByLocals guides have met our ToursByLocals Guide Requirements which includes warranting that they can legally give the tours they offer.

  THE TOURSBYLOCALS DIFFERENCE
  • Choose your own guide. See their photos, read their bios and communicate with them prior to booking your tour.
  • It's more affordable than you might think. Our pricing is per-tour NOT per-person so if there are 3 or more in your group, you'll probably pay less than if you took a big bus tour.
  • Every tour is private. Your guide will spend time only with you and the people you're traveling with.
  • Go at your own pace. See as much as you can or slow things down to a saunter. With your private guide, your day is flexible.
  • Benefit from a local's knowledge. Access more intimate, out of the way spots that have never seen a bus tour.
  • Every tour is customizable. See the sights YOU want, try the food YOU crave, learn about what interests YOU the most.
  • Questions? Talk to a REAL person. Our customer support team offers reliable, friendly service plus a 24 hour emergency hotline.
