New Zealand's borders may be closed, but our backyard is wide open!

We are thrilled to announce our new Wendy Wu 'Local Edition' tours - two unique itineraries that unlock the hidden treasures of New Zealand in a way only Wendy Wu Tours can.

Fully inclusive and with hints of inspiration from our traditional overseas destinations, these group tours explore some of our less well-known kiwi sights. Read our itineraries below and get inspired to see more of the country than ever!

Hidden Gems of the North

Kicking off in our capital city with Weta Studios and Zealandia Ecosanctuary, we head north by luxury coach, visiting the beautiful vistas of Taranaki and the volcanic plateau. We’ll ride the brand new Sky Waka, NZ’s highest gondola, before popping into Napier for an Art Deco tour and some local winetasting. Hamilton Garden’s award-winning themed gardens are on the list, finishing in Auckland with an Asian cooking lesson.

Hidden Gold of the South

Our southern odyssey starts in historic Dunedin and the Otago peninsula, followed by a spectacular overnight cruise in Fiordland, charming Arrowtown with its goldrush history, and tranquil Lake Wanaka. We'll head up to Mt Cook for a Big Sky stargazing experience and a visit to the glacier terminus, and finish with Hector's dolphins and eclectic art in Akaroa.

The tours are on sale now and are for travel in 2021 and 2022. To book only requires a $99 deposit and full payment is not required until 45 days before departure.

Prices start from $4,280 for the 11 day Hidden Gems of the North and $5850 for the 11 day Hidden Gold of the South.

Everything’s included – all meals, 4-5 star accommodation, transport, a National Escort and a fun sociable group of like-minded New Zealanders, all keen to experience the scenic beauty in our own backyard!
