Haka Tours are amazing
James & Morgan were our guides & led our 7day MTB tour on the Nth Island of NZ, and everything was smooth, easy and fun. The group we were part of were friendly and everyone was relaxed (they all loved the riding too). The trails were awesome and one of the best bits for me was that my wife (who couldn't ride as she's was 5 months pregnant) was able to go bushwalking most days and so also really enjoyed herself too. Great Work Guys. Haka Tours are Awesome!!
So much fun!!!!!! Booked a 7 Day North Island tour. Activities were fantastic and well priced.
Met some really cool people and tour guide Chris went out of his way to make the trip awesome.
Will be using Haka tours when I return to see the South island.
Access savings worth hundreds of $$ on Top Ranked NZ Accommodation and Activities for just $1 per day.
The decision to travel for 16 days on a Haka Adventure tour was one of the best decisions I have made for myself. As a solo traveller, the small group size allowed me to instantly make friends and as these friendships developed we were able to enjoy the beauty of New Zealand and new experiences together. It was like becoming the member of a new family. The bus trip felt like a road trip with best friends - I have only the best memories of my tour. The guides truly go out of their way to make it the best time possible and the tour felt effortless, as a guest we could do what we wanted when we wanted. I would not hesitate to recommend Haka to anyone and hope that one day I can travel with them again.
Had the most fantastic week with these guys: could not have asked for a better tour company, guides and organisation. It was a trip of a lifetime - Si and Carl made the experience so much fun and so knowledgable. Loved the small group vibe: made some great friends and we got to see some fab extras that big tour companies wouldn't have be able to do. Memories for life, so many great experiences and beautiful scenery. Book now!!!! Thanks Haka for an amazing week.
Had an outstanding time with Haka Tours meeting amazing people and had epic days in the ski resorts. Will definitely looked to do it again sometime in the future as it was the perfect experience as a snowboarder. Will also highly recommend Haka tours to anyone who is looking to do the same thing I have done. The entire staff did an exceptional job.
I could not have asked for a better tour company, guides and organisation. I had the trip of a lifetime - Si and Carl (and Maz) made the experience so much fun; they were knowledgable and we got to see some awesome extras that bigger tour companies wouldn't be able to do. Love the small group tour vibe, we had a little travel family by the end of the 16 day tour! I would recommend Haka to anyone, any age, BOOK IT NOW! You won't regret it!
Just returned recently from the 4 day ski tour with haka tours! Our guide Hygi was amazing for the entire tour! Thankyou for sharing your local knowledge with us and also for being a fun and postive person. It really makes a difference when your guide gets involved and enjoys the moments with you ! I would highly recommend this tour for beginner's and also experienced skiers/snowboarders as everything can be customized for you. As a beginner i felt that i was looked after very well and loved everyday.
Thankyou haka tours for a great experience.
What an amazing tour! I did the 12 day Adrenaline Junkie Tour in July 2016 and it was one of the best decisions I have ever made. There was a wide range of ages of happy travellers in the tour (I think I was the oldest at 55) but what is age? We were all there to have a great time and Haka and our amazing tour guide Andy (Baby Jesus) made sure we did. I would recommend it to anyone and everyone no matter what age or where you are come from! New Zealand turned on the awesome-ness with breath-taking scenery and wildlife and a wide range of weather - it was my time to tick off those things on the bucket list and I certainly did that - but the highlight of my trip was my skydive from 16,500 feet at Abel Tasman Skydiving - it literally took my breath away!!! Big thanks to Haka Tours and Andy for a most memorable holiday.
Haka Tours currently have a mortgage on this Award. Congrats to Haka, once again!
I did the 12 day south island tour back in July. One of the best decisions I've ever made - a fantastic tour with a great guide (Andy) and a really nice tour group. Would definitely recommend it to anyone.
Just completed the seven day south island tour. Had an absolutely awesome time seeing some of the most epic scenery in the world. Andy our tour guide made sure everything ran smoothly. Not an easy job when you have a group of people doing different activities. All activities were well organised and proceeded without any problems. I highly recommend an extra day in Christchurch before and after the tour. I think it would have felt a little rushed otherwise. NZ south island is a photographers dream. I wish I had taken a better camera than my samsung galaxy S6. Lol. We did some long sections in the bus, but Andy made sure we stopped often enough to stretch our legs. We had a mixture of age groups on the tour and everyone had a great time. I think being a small group enables you to do things that large groups would not be able to do. This was the first guided tour I have done and I highly recommend it. I will definitely do more. Having everything organised for you and not having to do the driving or navigating allows you to relax and enjoy the scenery.
South Island Lick tour. Going with Haka Tours was the best decision I've made for my first solo travel. The tour helped me get the most out of limited time in New Zealand. They are definitely excel in what they do.
I was on the 24 day Epic tour in Feb 2016, overall my experience with Haka Tours was amazing! I really can't recommend this company enough. My Tour guide did an incredible job the whole time and made the whole group welcome and involved. If your looking for an intense and non-stop tour then definitely join the 24 day Epic tour. I think its plenty enough time to actually take in everything this country has to offer, and gives your more of a chance to get involved in all the cool activities that are available.
Thanks Haka Tours for helping me tick several things off my bucket list! :)
I know this review is way overdue. I did the 7 day South Island Tour back in December 2015 with Willow and it was one of the most amazing time and experience of my life!!! The tour was very well organized, but it didn't feel like we were rushing to do activities. Willow as a guide is a perfect combo of laid back, fun, and someone you can tell that truly loves what they do. The very first day when I got into Haka Lodge in Christchurch, the staff was welcoming and you feel at ease right away. That first day I felt a bit nervous as I've never done a group tour before, but the anxiety all went away when Willow made sure that we were all acquainted, and our activities were discussed to us again. During the 7 days I spent with my tour group, we had lots of fun, and get to cheer each other as we did different things and our time together doing activities, sightseeing, eating, all made this experience very memorable. There were many secret stops as well that was very Kiwi, and I really enjoyed that. And, I was able to cross off many things on my bucket list because of this tour, and I am very glad that I chose Haka! If i ever get the chance to go back to NZ, I will not hesitate to book with Haka again.
