    Definately worth doing the Grand Kiwi, best way to see the whole country. Make sure you get the most out of the adrenaline pumping fun in Queenstown, while relaxing on the beaches up north. Loved every bit of it!

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Does this tour includes the glow worm caves at waitoma?

    Unfortunately there wont be enough time on the itinerary for the Waitoma caves, but there may be an opportunity to see glow worms elsewhere on the tour, but it is not guaranteed.

    If you were to arrive in Auckland a couple of days before the tour starts, you could visit Waitoma independently before the tour begins.
