Hello and welcome to MoaTours New Zealand!

MoaTours holidays are designed especially for mature travellers who want to explore our beautiful countryside, enjoy special annual events and get to know the locals over relaxed lunches in their homes.

The difference between MoaTours and other small group tours is the all inclusive costs. From the moment you step on board our coach (maximum 18 travellers) everything is taken care of by our knowledgeable and helpful Kiwi guide. All meals, sightseeing, entrance fees and activities are included in your tour cost. All South Island tours include return Auckland/Auckland airfares.

Our leisurely paced itineraries are four to seven days in length and cover the country from Cape Reinga in the North to Stewart Island in the South. Each tour focuses on just one or two regions so you will have time to enjoy their special attractions and discover those off the beaten track places.

And you’ll end each day in quality, en suite accommodation with a great “sense of place”.

We’re a family owned business and we’ve been running unforgettable small group tours of New Zealand for over 40 years. It’s our mission to make travelling around our beautiful country the best travelling experience you’ve ever had. It’s what we live for.

The other people on our tour were all so bright and we had much fun. Matt our driver was excellent and the accommodation was 5 star. The places for our stopover lunches, mostly at heritage homes, were unbelievable. I loved their homes and the people. The WOW show was just as good as I was told about. Overall the tour was excellent.
