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.

This is a special trip for you, and we reckon the best way to travel is in a small friendly group. It's easy to get to know people and you can visit off the beaten track spots big coaches just can't get to.

  • Make new friends and catch up with old ones. Our regulars love their catch ups and so will you!
  • More attention from your guide, less people on the trip means more time for you.
  • Visit secret spots and little cafes that big buses just can't, that's the way to see the real New Zealand.

Southern Odyssey and Stewart Island

John and Denise Hepworth

What an absolutely fabulous trip you sent us on with Em for Southern Odyssey and Stewart Island. It is hard to pinpoint the best wonders we saw as you had encapsulated so many things into our trip, however my personal favourites were the Royal Albatross Colony and our Oban tour on Stewart Island with Kylie who also is amazing.
