    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!

    Amazing time travelling around NZ with Haka! Our tour guide, Andy (aka baby Jesus) kept us entertained and thought of all kinds of amazing adventures to take us on. I'd recommend the tour just based on him!

    We had a wonderful 16 day tour with Si, Ricky, and Ruru, The small group tour was just right size. Si really built the group into a team of adventurers. Great sightseeing, making bone fish hook necklaces (wearing it now) in the Maori tradition. worked in a few fishing trip that our guides assisted with transport and cooking our catch. (Si is a great chef) . Most beautiful spot was the Lake Tekapo with Lupines in full bloom, the Glacier lake Kayak in Franz Joseph.

    I would book with Haka Tours again. Our guide, Oli, was amazing. We had a little detour due to the earthquake at kaikoura and Oli was able to deal with the changes. He was very accommodating. The hostels were clean and comfy. We had a great group and I will never forget the new friends I've made and the experiences. I would definitely recommend Haka Tours if you want an intimate tour of new zealand.!

    Thanks for supporting Haka and New Zealand through the earthquake, we look forward to seeing you again

    Had a brilliant time with Haka Tour ( 16 days)! Everyone was extremely friendly and helpful - so well organised from booking through to the tour itself. The tour guides, Katie and Si were superb!!. They surprised us with unique stops and were going above and beyond to ensure that each person enjoyed themselves. The accommodation was great, so many activities to choose and there is no obligation to do any if you don't want to. I never thought I would do a skydive, but thanks to Katie I did and I couldn't be more grateful to her for encouraging me to do it. A massive THANK YOU Katie. Made some really good friends, and being around such crazy, "hungry" for life people makes you approach life with excitement. (Si - mon you played a huge role on that). Thank you Si and Katie for showing me the beautiful country. Can't wait to head back to NZ and explore more of the stunning landscape.

    Thanks Anna, we loved having you on tour too. I have passed on your comments to Katie and Si . We can't wait to see you in NZ again :) - Cheers Haka Team

Questions & Answers

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

    • May 1, 2017

      I'd like to know if it is possible to make this trip only until Queenstown?

      You can stay on the tour until Queenstown that is fine but unfortunately the price will remain the same. If you finish in Queenstown you would miss the night in Wanaka and two nights in Franz Josef. You could potentially still continue the tour to Wanaka and spend the night/day there and bus from Wanaka to Franz Josef.

    • May 1, 2017

      What is the kind of accommodation provided?

      The accommodation we stay at on tour is at upmarket backpackers and hostels. They have laundry facilities, kitchen/cooking facilities at each location.

    • February 1, 2017

      We specialise in giving you the best tours from around the world, however the tours we offer do not include airfare and we do not book or advise on airfare.
