We love to show Kiwis around on our small group South Island Tours.

South Island Tours NZ specialise in creating all inclusive guided tour packages for Kiwis, each tour showcasing a different region of the South Island. We have more than 28 years experience to share with you.Our philosophy is based on conscious tourism which means we support and include as many small businesses and individuals as possible in the creation of our product itineraries. When you purchase a tour from us you are supporting multiple kiwi businesses at the same time,  


Your guided tour options are; small group tours for seniors to discover the hidden gems a region. A specialist range of guided cycle tours, or fabulous guided 4WD Tagalong Tours where you bring your own 4WD to explore off the beaten track destinations. Talk to us about a personalised itinerary which can be created for you to icons of the South Island. 


We will look after you and you will be driven by a friendly local guide.

 In the South Island we have heaps of beautiful places to visit and awesome things to do that thousands of our customers over the years have enjoyed and we think you will love doing our tours as well.

Our group of 11 loved the tour through the iconic Molesworth and beyond. Hosts very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful and responsive to individual needs. Food and accommodation top class. Scenery fantastic and our group (half using  e-bikes and half mountain bikes) all loved the daily rides. Some who wanted to do more were able to which was much appreciated. A big thank you to our tour leaders for making this one of our best NZ cycling experiences.
