Hello and welcome to MoaTours New Zealand!

MoaTours tours are designed especially for mature travellers who want to explore our beautiful countryside, enjoy special annual events and get to know the locals over relaxed lunches in their homes.

The difference between MoaTours and other small group tours is the all inclusive costs. From the moment you step on board our coach (maximum 18 travellers) everything is taken care of by your Kiwi guide. All meals, sightseeing, entrance fees and activities are included in your tour cost.

Our leisurely paced itineraries are four to eight days in length and cover the country from 90 Mile Beach in the North to Stewart Island in the South. Each tour focuses on just one or two regions so you will have time to enjoy their special attractions and discover those off the beaten track places.

Our knowledgeable, helpful Kiwi guides are here to make every moment enjoyable - they’ll feel like good mates in no time. Because our groups number no more than 18 people, it’s just like travelling with friends!

And you’ll end each day in high-quality, en suite accommodation with a great “sense of place”.

We’re a family owned business and we’ve been running unforgettable small group tours of New Zealand for over 40 years. It’s our mission to make travelling around our beautiful country the best travelling experience you’ve ever had. It’s what we live for.

Sound good so far? Take a look at our tours here or get your free brochure now.
