10 Day Fully Hosted Small Group Tour.

Discover the attraction of New Zealand’s South Island during this spectacular 10-day hosted tour, embarking on a series of lovely tours to better explore the Top of the South.  

Showing-casing some of the best of everything found in the area, we explore the spectacular scenery of the South Island, taking time to enjoy the fascinating cities and countryside’s. 

Beginning in Picton, we will explore the striking scenery of Marlborough, from its gardens, wineries and aviation heritage to the shores and marine wildlife of the Kaikoura Coast.

Discover the vintage Weka Pass Railway and alpine village of Hanmer Springs, with time at leisure to rest and relax, before continuing on to explore the beautiful Nelson & Tasman regions. Embark on our scenic cruise through the Abel Tasman National Park, marveling in its beauty, step back in time as we visit an early settlers cottage and shop until you drop with the “locally famous” artisans and quaint country stores. 

The end of our journey sees us leaving sunny Nelson behind, before heading back to Picton via the beautiful Marlborough region.
