    Things I did not like about the accommodation. A couple of the hostels we stayed had mixed gender bedrooms with multiple bunk beds. This is fine if those sharing are all travelling together and agree this is ok. I did not like to share with people of a... Read more

    Great tour for solo travelers! The group and guide were so much fun to travel with. Loved that all the activities were already pre-booked and that we had the flexibility to add additional activities if we wanted to.

    The tour was exiting not only because of fabulous views , but also because of fantastic atmosphere created by young attenders, included Sam our guide. So, few of us older than others was considered very relax and happy.

Questions & Answers

Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions about this tour.

    • Is there a hotel list available?

      The tour operator has advised that they do not have a full list of accommodations available for the Amplified NZ tour, as the accommodations change so frequently. After the booking is made you will be issued your final trip documents with your specific accommodation details. However, a couple of examples of accommodations they use for this tour are the Haka hotel in Newmarket and YHA Hostel in Wellington - hopefully, this can give you a better idea of the kind of accommodation you can expect on tour.

    • When and where does the tour end?

      This tour concludes at approximately 6 pm at YHA Hostel in Wellington. Luckily, you accommodation on the last night of the tour is included, so feel free to party with your new travel buddies and treat yourself to a lie-in in the morning, where your tour ends after breakfast.

    • When and where does the tour start?

      This tour starts at 8 am on the first day of the tour, from the tour operator's very own Haka Hotel in Auckland (located in Newmarket on Manukau road). As this tour has such an early start, you can choose to stay in the hotel the night before the tour starts, which gives you a relaxed start to your Haka experience. Get ready, because on the first day of the tour, you will stop by the famous Hot Water Beach, which thousands visit each year to dig their own personal hot tub.

      TourRadar’s website easily let me find smaller group tours for a more intimate experience. When I needed to change a tour date the agent reached by phone was efficient and delightful. I am suggesting TourRadar to all my value-conscious friends as the best travel resource I’ve found!
