I loved the 7-day North Island tour! It was a great way to see the North Island in a short amount of time, especially if you are not comfortable driving or just do not want to rent a vehicle. I had been a bit hesitant to book because I don't usually stay in hostels anymore, but some of them were really nice and others were more basic, but still fine. I paid for the private room upgrade which was well worth it for me. Most had an ensuite and in some places I got my own large cabin! Our tour guide was Louisa and she was wonderful. My favorite tour guide I've had. She was fun and knowledgeable, kept us on schedule, but was also easy going. There was a lot of flexibility in the tour to add on the options you wanted, which I really liked. Some people in the group were on a stricter budget than others, so I liked that there was the option to cook at the hostel or go out depending on what worked best for you. Our group was pretty diverse in age - from 18 up to late 40's, with most people travelling solo and others travelling with a friend. We definitely went places on the tour that you wouldn't know about if you were just driving yourself around. I also really liked the cultural component of the tour that sets it apart from other small group tours. I would definitely recommend Haka to others wanting to explore NZ in a small group.

I really enjoyed my North Island Adventure tour. I was travelling solo but quickly made friends with the rest of the (very diverse) group. We saw and did so many amazing things in just one week! Our tour guide was super-knowledgeable and got us everywhere on time. I would highly recommend Haka Tours to anyone who wants to see New Zealand and experience new things without having to worry about the basics (transfers, accommodation, breakfast).

I did the 24 Day tour with Andy (Baby J). If you want your tour to be professionnal, fun, culturally sensitive, inclusive of all shapes, sizes, ages, nationalities, wallet size and come away with a deeper understanding and respect for the country...........then this is the tour and tour guide for you. Activity that made me laugh the most: Luge and Gondola in Queenstown. Best free Activity: Holding hands jumping off 15m rock into lake. There were loads of extra paid activities but it was the free stuff that made the tour for me. Paul aged 42 and a half :-)

The tour was incredible. Everything was organised brilliantly and there were lots of opportunities to experience different aspects of New Zealand. Our tour guide was fabulous and it showed he took pride in his job and in showing us everything New Zealand has to offer. Would definitely do another tour with Haka.

Amazing NZ South Island 7 days. Joined this tour on Mar 17 for 7 days. It's amazing & the itinerary takes you to all must see places in 7 days. Haka arranges the tour in a small group, so we all have extra seat in our van. The tour guide ( Alex ) is very friendly & knowledegable with all the interesting places. It's a beautiful itinerary for NZ South Island.

I did the 24 day tour with Andy (Baby J) and it was just fantastic. Such a great way to visit New Zealand! Tour covered everything from beautiful scenery to adrenaline activities to Maori cultural experiences. There is something for everyone on the tour, whatever budget, fitness levels and cultural preferences. All the accommodations provided were clean and comfortable. Andy provided everybody enough space and nudge to have a good time while not missing out on fun. I would highly recommend this tour to first time visitors to get up and close with New Zealand.

So much fun! I went on the South Island Lick tour, and it was an amazing experience! Our tour manager was really organized and knowledgeable, and traveling in a small group made it so much easier to get to know everyone. I’d definitely recommend Haka Tours to other travellers!

I joined haka tours for the first time to explore NZ. I am beyond glad that I did go with them! Amplified NZ tour gives you the max out of ur first time visit to New Zealand. Preps before going and extreme professionalism of the tour organizers “specially Mary and Maria” for me. Patient and answers all questions asap. Once I was there we it was very easy to blend with the group as we felt like we know each and blended faster than I thought. It was my first time ever to join a tour as usually I do my trips solo. For New Zealand this is the best way to do it. Our guide was lovely Gracey! She was Suuuuuper efficient & fun to be around! Active and proactive! In short, u can’t go wrong with them. Highly recommended !
