We are 100% committed to protecting our environment and our 'people' health and safety - this includes our family of drivers/guides and our valued guests.
Our vehicles are a new model, non-branded European, purpose-built touring vehicles equipped with the latest low emission and road safety technology. Comfort is guaranteed by having ample legroom, climate control, and top quality in-car audio system for a comfortable driving experience.
We are constantly upgrading our fleet with new vehicles that offer improved fuel efficiency.
Our fine fleet of immaculately maintained vehicles ranging from premium 4WD (for singles or couples traveling), smaller comfortable V-class Mercedes Vans (for groups of up to 6 travelers, like families) and 12 seaters high roof, luxury Mercedes Sprinter (for friends and groups of up to 10 travelers) are dependable, practical and efficient.
We have a recycling program to ensure minimal waste and impact on our environment. We recycle all plastics, cardboard/paper, and food/green waste. We work closely with our suppliers to source environmentally friendly packaging.
All of our vehicles have a transport license for passenger services. You will be accompanied throughout your visit by an experienced and trained Aroha NZ Tour host (driver/guide). Our guides have a licensed passenger endorsement for their driver's license granting them the legal approval to drive paying passengers and have a first-aid certificate. They will take care of all your personal needs and basic details, leaving you the time to relax and enjoy a unique experience.
Work time includes all time spent working regardless of whether it is time spent driving or doing other work.
In general, drivers must take a break of at least 30 minutes after 5½ hours of work time, no matter what type of work occurs during that period.
In any cumulative workday, they can work a maximum of 13 hours, and then you must take a continuous break of at least 10 hours (as well as the standard half-hour breaks every 5½ hours). A cumulative workday is a period during which work occurs and that: does not exceed 24 hours and begins after a continuous period of rest time of at least 10 hours.
Any driver can accumulate a total of 70 hours of work time (known as a ‘cumulative work period’) before they must take a continuous break of at least 24 hours.
