"We have Veronika and Jurgen from Aroha Tours to thank for this experience of a lifetime. They were able to design an itinerary--and execute it flawlessly--around our preferences."
"Aroha are complete professionals. Absolutely perfect planning & execution. All of the arrangements were great (hotels, transport, scheduling, etc.). We were on schedule 100% of the time."
"First of all, we want to give you a big thank you for all your help! Its been a week since we got back to Charlotte, North Carolina and we can't thank you enough! Everything was amazing, down the the smallest detail!"
"My family and I have returned to the USA from the most well organized tour we have ever be on. Aroha tours was a pleasure to work with from day one. Veronika responded to my initial email requesting an itinerary with a 24 hour period. I think this in itself is impressive. We worked together for several weeks and Veronika included everything in the itinerary that my family requested."
"Veronika at Aroha Tours planned a two week trip for my husband and me with 4 days on the North Island and 10 days on the South Island. The trip was marvelous in every way, and we unhesitatingly recommend Aroha. The tour was planned with careful attention to our preferences and great flexibility The places we stayed were lovely and welcoming. Our driver/guides (Dave and Steve) were efficient, friendly, knowledgable -- a joy to know."
The first thing you need to know about Aroha is that we are on a journey ourselves. This journey is to become carbon neutral, leave a tiny footprint wherever we take our guests, and become ever more immersed in the extraordinary culture right here in Aotearoa. It would be our honour to share at least part of this journey with us.
For us, travel is a means to an end. Whether it is by plane, helicopter, train, boat, car – it’s all just operational necessity that we don’t want you to have to think about. Our intention is to make the travel component as invisible as we can so you can get on with the important business of immersing yourself in the very best that New Zealand has to offer.
Our travel designers will ensure that you see and do what you want and making that happen is something they take very personally. They create experiences for discerning people who know how they like to travel and custom build tours around that.
Aotearoa New Zealand looks like a small place on the globe. It is not until you get here that you realise how big and expansive this little country is. There is an extraordinary richness to the scenery, the history, and the activities available here.
That is why we provide a hand-picked team of guides for those who choose guided tours. These are men and women whose knowledge of this country is impressive, allowing them to give you knowledge and understanding you may never otherwise have gained.
To add to this commitment to providing you with the most intimate experience, we have a range of local field guides who have the expertise and abiding love for their particular corner of Aotearoa.
What makes Aroha unique is that we don’t see our home as just superficially one of the most beautiful places in the world. We see layers of beauty and uniqueness. Our indigenous Maori come from a culture and language that was not written, only spoken. That means a culture rich and abundant in story telling. We might show you a forest and its native fora and fauna but we will put you in the presence of someone whose whanau (family) have been telling, refining, and adding to the story of the forest for a thousand years.
Come join us on an adventure that will touch your body, mind, and soul. You are our welcome guest.
