    Loved the tour. Lizzie made it for me. She was bubbly, accommodating and yet flexible. The group were great, age range 19 to 72, now that's some range. All Haka hostels were super, others, not so much.

    I had an amazing time on the 16 day Amplified NZ Tour and I would definitely recommend Haka tours to anyone looking for a taste of New Zealand. We saw and did so much in a short space of time, that I can't name one thing I didn't enjoy. The tour had a really fun bunch of people from around the world and we always had a good laugh. Our guide was awesome, he was part of the family. He was very knowledgeable, really helpful, organised and always kept us informed of activities for a particular day and if there were any issues. He also made sure everyone had a good time. If you want to get away from city life, do activities you don't normally do, see some greenery, mountains/hills, New Zealand is definitely the place to be.

I'll definitely recommend Haka Tours ,if you're a single traveller who want to see lots places on a limited holiday time and want to make some new friends along the NZ journey. Another good thing is the fact that all the Haka staff and guide have a quick response on your enquiries, very helpful and always make sure that you have a great time on your tour!

    Mikey went above and beyond expectations. In no time, we felt like family. I look forward to Facebook notifications of friends I made. He knew the local history of places we visited in North and South Islands, the best restaurants, views. It was my most memorable vacation and I did not wish the 24 day trip to end.

    I had a great trip. Would really recommend this tour for anyone looking to get a taste for New Zealand in 16 days and wants to see more than than other independent bus tours give you the chance to. It's a great group size, wonderful tour guide, good accommodation and so much fun. Book it!

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, the Haka Lodge in Christchurch, the Haka Lodge in Taupo and YHA in Wanaka - 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 5-6.30 pm at the tour operator's very own Haka Lodge in Christchurch (518 Linwood Ave, Woolston, Christchurch 8062). 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.

      Booking was really easy! The options were displayed clearly and I was able to filter. I especially liked that they recommended a travel insurer because I've never had to get travel insurance. No hassle experience and now I'm ready for my tour!
