RPT Overview:

Travelling New Zealand couldn’t be easier with the Kiwi Experience, these guys will take you around various routes of NZ, hitting up all the hotspots of the north and south islands. Choose a route best suited to you and your time frame and the kiwi ex crew will do the rest! They also guarantee you at least 1 hostel night at each location (which is awesome in busy periods).

Simply select a start date - we will then notify the Kiwi Ex crew of you arrival date and they will pre book each sector - you can then easily modify the sectors as you go.

Not sure when your travelling? No probs! You can book this experience open dated and then once you are ready to get booked in, drop us a message and we can sort it all out for you! Your pass will be valid for 12 months after purchase - so you’ll need to start travelling within that time, an awesome tip from us is that Kiwi have epic sales on throughout the year so we can hook you up!

{{ RPT recommends - put down the phone whilst your cruising about and chat to the legends around you, you never know what the next interesting convo will bring! }

Destination Overview:

Starting in Auckland the Buzzy Bee winds its way down the North Island, cruises down the West Coast of the South Island then finishes up in Queenstown. Being a one-way pass it can be done in a minimum 15 days in the summer which is great if you want to see a lot but don’t have a lot of time.

Travelled the east coast with 3 friends and Sam helped us book certain trips and tours. He was great with recommendations on which ones were best suited to us and kept in contact throughout our travels. Sam also helped us when organising our trip to New Zealand! Thank again🤗 ❤

So glad that we had Sam plan our trip for us. He gave us a rough unitary of our East Coast trip, whilst also sorting out our campervan, Fraser Island trip, Whitsunday and also Sky Dive. Made our travels really easy and enjoyable. Would highly recommend!
