    • Can you assist with booking additional accommodation?

      Of course, we can! Once you have a confirmed booking on this tour, we can request additional accommodation for you with the tour operator.

    • Do I need a visa?

      As a tour booking website, TourRadar cannot organise visas for you on your behalf as the visa requirements are regularly being updated and vary for the nationality of one traveller to the next. It is for this reason that we recommend checking with your local embassy or consulate website for the latest up to date information.

    • 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 Lodge in Christchurch (518 Linwood Ave, Woolston, Christchurch 8062). As this tour has such an early start, you can choose to stay in the lodge the night before the tour starts, which gives you a relaxed start to your Haka experience.

    • Do you arrange airport transfers?

      Airport transfers can be arranged at an additional cost, please contact our customer support team for more information.

    • I'm a solo traveller, is there a single supplement?

      The tour price includes dorm share accommodation but if you would prefer your own space you have the option to upgrade to a private room for the duration of your tour. Please contact our customer support team to arrange this.

    • How much luggage can I bring on this tour?

      There are some guidelines in regards to luggage. It is advised that passengers only bring a 20kg bag with them (a backpack is preferable) and a small day bag to have with you in the coach.

    • Regarding additional activities, can I book and pay for them during the tour or do I need to book and pay in advance?

      You can book activities during the tour or before hand - just inform your tour guide. The availability though isn't gauranteed, so if there are things you definitely want to do, you should pre-book online.

    • What is the age range?

      This tour has an age requirement of 18 years old, which means that children and young travellers under the age of 18 are not eligible to participate in this tour. The maximum age limit for this tour is set at 55 years old.
