Haka Tours: 24 Day Epic New Zealand Tour

Be awed by spectacular glaciers, mountainous ranges and dazzling blue water. Soak up the beauty of our stunning landscapes, absorb Maori culture in Rotorua, and simply let Queenstown take your breath away. Hands down, this tour covers all bases and beyond!   

The Trip of a Lifetime
 
Haka Tours started out with the core belief that smaller groups make for the best tour experience. thats why our average tour size is just 10-12 people, and we restrict numbers to 16.
 
Because our tour groups are smaller, we have the scope to be flexiable. If it is hot sunny day and there is a beach nearby, then we'll stop for a swim. If we're in the mood for a long, lazy lunch, then we'll do just that.
 
And because our buses are smaller and much more mobile, we can veer far away from the main roads and take you to some cool places that the bigger bus companies can simply not go too!
