Discovering New Zealand with Distant Journeys
On one of our escorted holidays to New Zealand you will visit all the must-see attractions. We offer a 24-day Magnificent New Zealand touring holiday or a 28-day Very Best of New Zealand touring holiday. And to ensure you can really absorb the country’s stunning landscapes, vibrant cities and rich Maori culture, you’ll generally stay in each destination for two or three nights.
Travel with the Award Winners
In November 2016, Distant Journeys was named as the ‘Best Small Holiday Company to Australasia’ at the highly respected British Travel Awards, and again in 2017. In 2018 Distant Journeys won two further awards for our tours to Australia and New Zealand and our success was repeated again in 2019. We are keeping our fingers crossed we will be successful again in 2020. The awards are in recognition of the quality of our tours to New Zealand and voted for by the public.
Furthermore, Distant Journeys have been awarded Feefo’s highest Platinum Trusted rating, so you can book your New Zealand tour with Distant Journeys safe in the knowledge that you’re travelling with a multi award-winning company.
Enjoy complete peace of mind
We take great pride in putting together the best guided tours of New Zealand. We’re lucky to benefit from the unique knowledge and experience that our Directors gained between them over the 60 years they’ve been in the travel industry. You can rest assured that our holidays are fully bonded by the Civil Aviation Authority (ATOL no. 10913), plus, if Distant Journeys need to change any of your travel plans before you depart due to Covid-19, you have the option to change to another tour, or cancel your holiday with a full refund, so you can book knowing your money is 100% safe!
Why not add Australia to your itinerary?
To really make the most of their journey to the other side of the world, we find that many people who visit New Zealand want to visit Australia too. Our fabulous 30-day Highlights of Australia & New Zealand Tour provides the perfect holiday for you to compare and contrast these fascinating destinations. Or if you prefer we have a number of departures that combine one of our New Zealand tours with one of our tours of Australia to make the perfect touring holiday. See our Australia and New Zealand combination tours for more details.
