South Island 5 Day Tour


This tour explores the lower half of the South Island taking in the most popular and exciting locations. We travel down the east coast to Dunedin, once the biggest city in New Zealand and where we find Baldwin St (the steepest street in the world)as well as many other delights. We explore the rugged Catlins Coast, seldom visited and off the path of most visitors ending in Te Anau, a quiet town on a beautiful lake. The tour goes south to the famous Milford Sound for a scenic cruise. . . . . . this is the most famous scenic road in New Zealand for good reason. . . . lakes, pristine rainforest, mountains and glaciers surround the road. The tour finishes in Queenstown, the adventure capital of New Zealand.
I can create a customized tour for you in case you have any special requests or if you are more than 11 and need a larger vehicle.
