Meet the MoaTours Team

When you look back at your favourite travel experiences over the years, what is it that makes some stand out more than others? For many, it’s the people they meet and share special times with. Well that’s what we think too and if you ask us why we do what we do, it’s because we love meeting new people and showing you around the very best spots in this magical country we’re lucky to call home.

When you first get in touch about your trip, you’ll be talking with Tracy, Tanya, Susan, Christine, Sarah or Tracey – here to help with anything at all you need to know or want to ask, they’ll make sure your MoaTours experience is relaxed and stress free from start to finish.

Your Kiwi Guides

Our team of guides are great people with lots of interesting stories to tell, they love leading our small group style tours as they know this is the best way to see the amazing country we Kiwis call home. You’ll love hearing about Sean’s surfing prowess or Graeme’s rocky years as a geologist – getting to know these characters makes your trip that much more memorable.

Behind the scenes, the guide team is fully supported by one of the most experienced and committed teams in all of New Zealand tourism, folks with decades of experience who love sharing their favourite Kiwi spots with you on your tour.
