As avid global travellers ourselves, we believe that travel can be transformative if it allows for exploration, excitement, awe, and shared connections with both nature and locals. We ensure these elements by connecting you to our trusted locals who are committed to providing authentic, "Kiwi" experiences and who are eager to welcome our LGBT clients. Most of our partners are small, local owner/operators with deep community roots and share our values of sustainability, social responsibility, and exceptional service.
New Zealand is rated one of the gay-friendliest countries by Lonely Planet. Combined with stunning scenery, world class food and wine, unique Maori culture, super-friendly people, and endless activities to choose from, it's one of the best travel destinations in the world.

New Zealand: Self-Drive Ultimate Getaway - New Zealand, Varies
Let us create your New Zealand Self-Drive Trip. We can help plan your trip so your time and money is well spent, so you stay in gay-friendly or gay owned lodging, and where you'll meet our wonderful partners who provide unique and exceptional quality experiences.
We ensure you enjoy high value lodging and activities that focus on outstanding customer service and authentic experiences. Very often that level of service is found off the beaten path or out of the major tourist centers, and we help you connect with these people and experiences.
Our Self-drive itineraries are expertly created specifically for independent travellers. We take care of all your bookings (accommodation, car rental, domestic transport, selected activities), and provide you with a trip packet that contains detailed notes, directions, contact information, booking vouchers, and more.
Select a "Ready to Go" itinerary or work with us on a "One of a Kind" trip that is designed in collaboration with you, based on your drams and interests. We'll listen to what you want, learn how you want to travel, find out what's important to you in a travel experience, and ensure that's exactly what you get. We're available in New Zealand to take care of any "in the moment" concerns that may arise on your trip as well.
Many of our travellers wish to travel independently, but don't wish to drive. If that's you too, we use a combination of local guides, domestic flights, and scenic rail to show you our country. The possibilities are endless, so get in touch now.
New Zealand: Luxury Privately Guided Tour - New Zealand, Varies
Let us create your dream New Zealand trip. Whether you're traveling alone, as a couple, or in a group, we'll work with you to design the experience of a lifetime.

We take care of everything else.
Perhaps you want a special family vacation, a way to celebrate a life milestone or anniversary, a reunion for special friends, or have a deep interest in nature, birds, hiking, biking, fishing, or food and wine ... because we are locals who have extensive and current information, as well as relationships with the people best suited to serve you, we can ensure your journey is unique - designed just for you.
