Fancy seeing New Zealand by a private tour? Or perhaps a small group tour with your mates is more your thing? Are you getting older and need more time than tour groups allow? Maybe you have an ailment and just need a travel companion to take care of the small stuff? Let me put together a suitable itinerary that suits your personal circumstances. 

Group tours don't suit everyone. Neither do self drive holidays.  New Zealand roads are different as they can be narrow, windy and sometimes changing weather conditions can make them hazardous. Additionally, if you normally drive on the other side of the road and the other side of the vehicle, our roads are a hazard for you. That's where I come in. I'm a professional driver / tour guide who is happy to be your personal chauffeur, guide and travel companion.


I can work with you to plan your ideal holiday. I can make all the bookings and can drive you according to your holiday schedule anywhere in New Zealand. 


You may like to have a long weekend away in the Bay of Islands, or take a few days to discover the North Island's East Coast or the South Island's West Coast. You may want to take a couple of weeks to explore the main attractions of either of the North or South Islands. You might want to do both. I'm here to help make it happen by taking the hassle out of travel for you.

Give me a call or send me an email and I'll do all the work to help you plan your New Zealand break.






As long or as short as you wish. Let me know what works for you.



Hotel, motel, back packers, camping, cabins, Airbnb, camper van or caravan. You choose.



Fine dining, take away, self catering or a combination of all. Whatever works for you and your budget.



Car, van, mini bus, camper van, train, boat, plane? Do it all if you want to.

Clare M - New Zealand wrote - "In March 2018, Alex from Real Kiwi Tours took me on a 13 day tour around the South Island of New Zealand. We planned the trip together and Alex made it easy for me by doing all the work behind the scenes booking the accommodation, ferry tickets, tour bookings, planning the driving route and planning our meals. This really was a trip of a life time for me as I would not have been able to handle this trip on my own as I am elderly and needed assistance. Alex was wonderful to travel with and she took excellent care of me. I recommend Alex to others who need a friendly and reliable travel companion and guide.

"I booked Real Kiwi Tours for one week in December 2017. I was a little apprehensive as I was travelling on my own but Alex was amazing! She made me feel very comfortable from the outset. Nothing was too much trouble for her. She took me to some amazing places and I can honestly say I had an amazing week filled with incredible memories. Thank you Alex xx"


Robyn S - United States of America wrote - "In November 2017, my sister and I went on a tour with Alex from Real Kiwi Tours. She took us on a fantastic journey down memory lane to Waiouru and the Tongariro National Park in the central North Island. Alex is a very knowledgeable tour guide and I would definitely go with Real Kiwi Tours again".

Sue C - Australia wrote - "I highly recommend Alex from Real Kiwi Tours. She was an excellent tour guide and shared a lot of interesting information about the central plateau region. Mt Ruapehu, Mt Ngaruahoe and Mt Tongariro were spectacular.Although I am a New Zealander, I have lived in Australia for a very long time, so it was wonderful to have a chauffeur who drove us safely and shared the history of the region.
