We have worked with a number of family and friend groups.

Here is an example of one of our past trips. We were contacted by Columbus Tours and Travel from Bangkok. We created a 8 day private tour of the South Island for a fantastic group from Thailand. Our tour guide, Steve, showed them the best of the South before they headed back home. Take a look at what one of the girls on the trip, Tiya, had to say:

“We had a great time with HAKA tours, and having Steve taking care of us. He is a man who loves his job and is always trying to give more to his clients. If we had a chance to come back to NZ, we would definitely travel with HAKA!”

Here is an example of one of our past tours. In 2009, we were privileged to take the Sacks family from the USA on an exclusive, guided tour of New Zealand for 2 weeks. We worked closely with them, and were very attentive to their needs. We organized the very best; a range of luxurious accommodation and a selection of the best adventure activities. They enjoyed caving, white water rafting, canyoning and a fantastic scuba dive in the Milford Sound. Here is what they had to say:

“This was a terrific bonding experience with my children – will remember our NZ travels always. The planning was perfect, very organised.”


At Haka Tours, we have organised trips for schools all over the world under our child-brand “New Zealand School Tours”. We have had a blast showing groups from schools, universities and polytechnical colleges all over our beautiful country. Our tours have ranged considerably. Some have a focus on adventure activities, some on geography and some have been interested in Maori culture.

An example of one of the schools we have worked with is Singapore American School, who have travelled with us three years in a row! We have taken three groups on a week-long inclusive South Island tour. Our tour guide, Si, showed them around New Zealand starting in Christchurch. Here is what they had to say:

“As a sponsor looking after 20 students, I appreciated how everything was set up and ran smoothly without any major hiccups. The dinners were fantastic. Si is awesome and did an amazing job dealing with all the teenagers and keeping everything and everyone on track! I would not change anything about the service. The kids enjoyed the free time and loved all the activities.”
