New Zealand Holidays
With Glorious Tours to New Zealand from the UK
This pure and unspoilt country of just 4 million inhabitants covers an area just slightly larger than the United Kingdom. One quarter is protected wilderness and much of the country remains pollution free – protecting the clean, green image that is synonymous with New Zealand attractions and often remarked upon by clients on our escorted group holidays. Its spectacular scenery includes snow-capped alps and deep fiords scattered with beautiful islets, luxuriant rainforests, river laced lowlands, active volcanoes, gushing hot springs and glorious beaches. Its unique and endless variety of flora and fauna is another fabulous aspect of holidays to New Zealand.
'Kiwis' pride themselves on their hospitality and friendliness, their warmth and humour featuring large among New Zealand attractions. The Maori people and their traditions add volumes to the richness of its history, culture and daily life. European, Pacific and Asian influences also add to the unique and dynamic culture that can be seen, heard and experienced by visitors throughout their New Zealand holidays. Clients on our New Zealand escorted tours have also frequently commented on the exceptional knowledge and personal commitment of their tour guides to ensure visitors enjoy New Zealand top sights to the full.
New Zealand has two main islands and All Ways Tailormade can offer exciting escorted group holidays and fascinating bespoke individual travel arrangements to both destinations. As proud Kiwis, we will be eager to introduce you to the fabulous attractions of our glorious country. Our New Zealand tours from the UK offer an exceptional variety of unforgettable experiences.
The North Island is rich in famous New Zealand attractions, with the country’s main gateway Auckland, offers a fascinating blend of sophisticated cities and magnificent scenery. Its northern coastline, within easy reach of Auckland, is dotted with lovely islands and sweeping peninsulas. Its bush areas are mostly sub-tropical, with mangrove swamps and hardwood rainforests, and home to an astonishing array of wildlife. At its centre are some leading attractions of holidays to New Zealand and New Zealand escorted tours: the hot springs and geysers of Rotorua, Lake Taupo, beautiful national parks and a range of volcanic mountains. On its southern tip lies New Zealand’s capital city, Wellington.
The South Island is more lightly populated and is renowned worldwide for its scenery and wine. New Zealand holidays and New Zealand escorted tours with All Ways Tailormade offer our clients the chance to experience its many wonders. The breathtakingly beautiful Southern Alps run the whole length of the island and are dominated by mighty peaks including Mt Cook, New Zealand's highest. Gleaming glaciers that sparkle in the sunlight are legendary among New Zealand top sights. Fiords cut dramatically into the South West coastline and the country's loveliest lakes reflect the mountains in their clear blue waters.

It’s called the NZeTA (New Zealand Electronic Travel Authority) and travellers need to request theirs via the official mobile app or website. Approval can take up to 72 hours, so get yours before you go.
The NZeTA is required for travel from 1 October 2019.
