Itineraries: Transport

At Luxe Guides we do things differently. We learn about our guests and itineraries are written from the ground up, individually handcrafted every time.

A unique creative process is the core of our bespoke travel experiences.

We find it is best to connect either by phone or email. This is where we discover what your ideal tour of New Zealand would be - what it is that you really want. We then put our expertise into action and create a first edition of your exclusive itinerary. Should you choose to proceed, the process that follows is to refine the itinerary until all of your wishes are satisfied and all of the components are in place. This may take several edits and editions before it is perfect, but perfect it will be! Once you are here in New Zealand, we are here, and we are always contactable. We support our guests during their entire stay. If there are any amendments or adjustments required we are only a phone call away.
Transport crop

New Zealand may look small on a world map but once visitors arrive they are often surprised by distances between here and there.

We have many ways to move around though, and combinations are often a wonderful way to see this country from a variety of vantages.

Be Driven

Luxe guides is in contact with a network of professional drivers and guides across the country. If you would prefer to be driven so that you can relax and take it all in, this is a fantastic option for you.

This also works for many guests who would prefer not to brave mountain roads in winter …or driving on the left-hand side at all!

Be Flown

New Zealand’s main airlines fly a number of domestic routes throughout the country. Fares can be well priced, flights regular and schedules are reasonably reliable.

If you are seeking a more refined option, Luxe Guides is more than happy to call on one of our preferred private jet or flight charter operators. We are also able to organise helicopter transfers and tours to suit.

Self Drive

If you are the type who prefers to dance to the beat of your own drum then hiring a luxury vehicle and driving at your own pace might just be your choice.

We have contacts who can put you in the driver’s seat of a premium late model, a classic or anywhere in between.

We would of course make sure all of your other travel arrangements are as flexible as possible to give you the true freedom that this option allows.

By Other Means

Of course we have more to offer!

World class train journeys such as the TranzAlpine. Hop along the coastline by motor or yacht. Bike tracks on bygone railway lines that are mellow and impeccably maintained. Or two feet and a heartbeat - We have walking tracks from the bottom of the country to the top, some regarded as the world’s greatest.

With some local knowledge and planning you can experience any or all that you wish.
