I toured NZ with Aroha Tours four times, obviously before the pandemic. That alone may tell you what wonderful experiences I had with them. My first trip was together with my brother (short 7 day tour of parts of the South Island). The second time my father and I went to the North Island for 10 days, the third time we did a two week tour of the South Island and the fourth time was a 12 day trip of parts of the North Island not visited on our second trip. I cannot thank Veronika and her team enough. Everything, from the first contact, to the planning and last but not least to the trip itself are done with expertise and warmth, which is hardly found anywhere else. The itineraries and the lodges are planned and selected with the greatest care and are perfectly adjusted to your requirements and wishes. And there is always enough room for flexibility, so that changes are possible also while you are already there. They arranged private helicopter flights, fishing excursions, etc. for us. Everyday was exciting! On all our trips Jurgen was our guide. He did an awesome job! To say his knowledge of the country is extensive is actually an understatement. Most of all his friendliness and humor make him a perfect companion for such a tour. We consider Jurgen a friend by now. On our last trip Veronika, the owner, herself guided us for a couple of days as well. This was such a wonderful experience. She and her husband even took us on a private boat trip to the Poor Knights Islands. I am convinced that there is no better choice than Aroha Tours, when you want to visit New Zealand and make the most of your trip! I cannot recommend them enough.

We took a 2 week North and South Island tour in February 2020 for my wife's birthday. We were lucky that we were able to experience NZ before Covid arrived in force. Veronika created an amazing itinerary on short notice that included stops that were off the beaten path - just what we were looking for! Everything was taken care of, our driver was fun and accommodating and it was truly a memorable vacation. We never would have thought to stay at some of the places Veronika found for us. We will never forget what the night sky looked like! Highly recommend booking your NZ vacation with Aroha!

We would like to thank you for the wonderful experience you have arranged for us, which was a trip with teenagers full of activities, carefully tailored to our needs. The company, especially Veronica - was able to apply the necessary flexibility according to our specific needs during this trip, while taking care of all other details including transportation, accommodation, attractions and domestic flights as well. We admire your personal attitude, availability and accessibility with no faults, which is why we would be happy to recommend your services to other friends of ours.

In February, 2020, we had a superb 2-week driving tour of the South Island with Aroha Tours. We worked with Veronica to arrange a custom tour of the locations we wished to visit, and the activities in which we were most interested. Veronica selected excellent accommodations along the way, and our driver-guide, Meghan, was an exemplary companion throughout our tour. We learned a tremendous amount from her about life in New Zealand, as well as her showing us great sights to see and hikes to take, and many photographic opportunities. Our South Island New Zealand trip could not have been better. We recommend Aroha Tours most enthusiastically.

In the weeks just before the world hit the pause button that was 2020 and beyond, my wife Megan and I had the very good fortune of spending 3 magical weeks in New Zealand for our honeymoon. As we enter the back half of 2021, only now can I fully reflect on just how lucky we were to experience what will surely be one of the highlights of our lives before such lingering darkness. Those three weeks in New Zealand have given us hope for all the grand adventures still to come when life resumes around the world. This magical experience that has kept us smiling a full year and a half later was largely due to Aroha Tours. Allow me to share a note I sent to Veronika (Aroha Tour’s Owner) the day my wife and I were preparing to leave New Zealand. It was March 1, 2020. Hi Veronika. Our trip has come to an end I just wanted to say thank you. When one envisions their honeymoon, the internal picture playing in one’s mind is often a near-perfect fantasy. That can be an extremely difficult bar to reach much less surpasses in actual reality. I must say, in my case, my often-vivid imagination could not begin to do justice to what Megan, and I have experienced over the last 20 days. In a word, this experience has been MAGICAL. This trip did not just meet our expectations, it exceeded them beyond all imagination. And we have you (and Zuzana) to thank for that. Your itinerary was perfectly planned and organized. Each day was an adventure that seemed to perfectly compliment the day before and after. It was like a jigsaw puzzle that when all placed together revealed the perfect adventure. From the extravagant to the more rustic, the accommodations were all vastly different in their own uniqueness yet all warm and inviting. There is no place we would not happily stay again. Your high standards in selecting accommodations for your clients is remarkable and most appreciated. Most of all we must tell you about our wonderful guide, Zuzana. I realize you must already know this as your attention to detail and high standards would of course extend to those you employ. But we could not say thank you without telling you personally how amazing we think she is. She made this trip, this adventure, this honeymoon a once-in-a-lifetime experience that will be forever remembered. Her spirit and grace was effortless. We felt as though we were traveling with someone we’ve known for ages. No question was left unanswered. She just knew what we needed and when we needed it, often before we did. We are now forever spoiled in our future travels. When we think of New Zealand, Zuzana will always be a joyous part of those memories. It was my intention here was to write a “quick” note of thanks and I seem to have rambled on. Apologies, I just wanted you to know how deeply grateful both Megan and I are for everything you did. My father was adamant that we call you when organizing our New Zealand honeymoon. I now understand why. I will be telling everyone I know that when traveling to New Zealand, there is only one company to call (or email). The fact that Aroha translates to “love” is so fitting as that’s what this trip has been all about for us. Thank you, Steven and Megan I wanted to share those thoughts from March of 2020 to help anybody on the fence about booking with Aroha that there is simply no better choice.
