Tips

  • Carry plenty of water and sun block while venturing outdoors since the sun is much stronger here than in the Northern Hemisphere.
  • Respect Maori culture by not sitting on tables or putting your hat on them. Further, avoid eating or drinking when inside a wharenui (meeting place).
  • You can safely use the word ‘kiwi’ while referring to New Zealanders. They don’t consider it to be an offensive nickname.
  • Eat your food only after it has been blessed by the Maori. Your tour guide will give you an idea of traditions and customs before you visit the tribes.
  • Be careful not to criticize the All Blacks; New Zealand’s favourite rugby team.
  • If you’re wrapping a gift, avoid using the color red as it’s considered a taboo here.
  • Cafes and restaurants usually levy an additional service charge of 10% on statutory holidays.
  • Avoid making the ‘V’ sign to indicate victory.

New Zealand Tours & Trips Reviews

  • "My New Zealand tour was memorable because of Isobel, the tour guide. I did not know what to expect on my Contiki tour but as it turned out, Isobel made it wonderful."

  • "The New Zealand experience was fascinating. There isin't anything not to like about New Zealand, it is an awesome country with beautiful sceneries, the people were amazing and the food and drinks were superb. Our tour guide (Isobel) did a fantastic job as she knew all the best places, encouraged us to do something bit different or scary (like a bungy jump) and her good taste in music kept us going in the mornings if we were feeling a bit worse for wear after a night out. I highly recommend this New Zealand tour."

  • "This New Zealand tour was amazing. I made some good friends during the travel and what made the tour enjoyable was the tour guide (Isobel), she was very informative and helpful as well as hilarious and fun to be around. I highly recommend this New Zealand tour to family and friends and will definitely do another one."
