Flying Kiwi revised brochure


After months of collating past tour feedback, we revise what we do, where we go and what we include to make future trips even better...if that's possible!

We then set our marketing guru, Neil the job of packaging it up in an easy to follow, interesting to read brochure full of valuable information and photo filled fun to help plan an unforgettable New Zealand adventure.

It's always an exciting time when our new shiny brochure rolls off the printers and is ready to hit the shelves of travel agents, hostels and information centres worldwide.

Due to the popularity of the below activities we have now included them FREE OF CHARGE.

- Waiwera hot pools & water slides

What makes our tours a more superior 'kiwi' adventure than most is that we get amongst it and become one with nature - we enjoy the good ole kiwi pastime of....camping!
