He was so attentive to our interests and was organized while still coming across as completely relaxed and carefree.

    I've done two Haka tours trips with Burto, both of which were amazing and changed my life! He's seriously one of the best guides I've ever had!

    I went on the 21 days Adventure Tour, and it was so much more fun than I expected!! I mean - I expected it to be great, but it was fantastic!! I'm looking back and I have these amazing memories, if I could I'd do it all over again. Mikey was our guide on this tour and he made us all feel like a family, he had so much info about EVERYTHING, he fixed us into all the activities we wanted to do, he even fixed a spot on a "hit air baloon flight" and that's not even on the list of activities they offer during the tour. He often drive the bus off road to show some special, hidden place. Waterfalls or caves in a mountain for example. It was so much inside info and that was great, feels like you're exploring the real NZ. And - he has a great sense on humor. Mikey is an awesome guide! And The Adventure tour is an awesome tour!

    Mikey went above and beyond expectations. The best part of my tour through NZ South Island, was when he would often stop at places he as a local knew of that other guides didn't, investing in showing us hidden treasures and giving awesome historical overviews to go with it. I loved what he did for us and the only reason I haven't been on another tour with him is the lack of time. Thanks mate you were a champion. Max

    Burto was the true hero of our trip. Class act all the way. Friendly, professional, funny as heck, and incredibly knowledgeable about all of New Zealand. I can’t say enough good about him!

    A brilliantly organised tour with something for everyone! Hygi is an awesome tour guide, friendly and hugely knowledgable - and a great driver (thankfully given those mountain roads!) I had an amazing trip with Haka and would recommend them to anyone heading to NZ looking for adventure!

What are people saying about TourRadar?

  • James12th May 2018
    I was able to sort through the various trips until I found a couple I wanted to take. After I booked I misjudged the travel time between when one tour ended and when I had to get to the next one (I didn't realize there were no evening flights where I was). TourRadar was great in connecting me with the tour operator and they were in turn great with helping me change the itinerary so I could do both trips without any extra hassle.
