What an amazing experience with Haka! I did the Bay of Islands tour earlier this month and had an absolutely phenomenal time. I saw Orcas for the first time, swam with the dolphins, ate fish and chips on one of NZ most gorgeous beaches while the sun set, chatting with new friends from all over the globe.

The accommodation at the Haka Lodge in Paihia is gorgeous. I had a private room which has a huge and comfortable super king bed with views of the sea. It even had Apple TV and a private bathroom. The view from the common room was absolutely stunning. I would say one of the best views in all of Paihia! It was above some amazing food places and 1 minute to the wharf for all the activities like Barefoot Sailing (highly recommend the sunset cruise!).

Thank you Haka tours for an AMAZING experience. As a NZ citizen I would not usually do a tour in my own country, but I learned so much, experienced more things than I would have done on my own and met some pretty amazing people.

Thank you so much for showing me my own backyard! I wish I could give you more than 10 stars.

Ultimate Heli trip with HAKA Tours
This trip has definitely been one of the best ski experiences of my life. I have skied all over the world, but I have been blown away by the beauty & the terrain in New Zealand. Haka tours made a great job putting this tour together and especially thanks to their guide Chris, this tour was worth every penny. Heli skiing can be tricky with changing weather, so you have to be prepared to be flexible about the schedule, anticipate and be a great coordinator, which was a task that Chris handled 100%. We were a group of 4 plus Chris and immediately became friends having fun and together making this and unforgettable trip. Thanks again Haka & Chris!

Could not recommend Haka tours enough!
I recently did the 7 Day North Island adventure, with the extension down to Christchurch. I had such a brilliant time and would rate it as one of my top holidays. Even before the tour began, the support and information given by the Haka staff was great. Our guide Andy was fantastic, very knowledgeable and accommodating, doing what he could to ensure everyone got the most out of their trip.
I was able to travel with an incredible group of people, the small size is perfect, making it easy to get to know people and develop friendships quickly.
My only regret is that I didn’t do a longer trip! Would definitely travel with Haka again.

I did a wonderfull 24 day tour with Haka tours in NZ. We had a very good guide (baby jesus) and everything was very good organised. The additional activity options are very nice but aren't pushed by anyone. The website is very complete

I had a wonderful and fun NZ adventure. And I owe it all to the haka tour and the wonderful people I meet on the trip! Our guide Joshy was cool and fun and went out of his way to make sure we were all having fun and really made sure everybody feelt like a part off the group.

Incredible experience! that's how I describe my New Zealand tour with Haka. Under stewardship of Sam Griffiths, 21 days on tour were like a cakewalk. Everything was well planned, organized and managed along with good backup support especially from Tianna Pittenger. Never faced any difficulty. The best part was the add-on activities. For a newcomer to New Zealand it is really difficult to choose a good activity operator and here Haka tour played their responsibility very well. Not only they choose the best and safety conscious operators, they also provided pick-up and drop from operators' sites. Tour was very reasonably priced and nothing was hidden. Real Kiwi adventure tour .. cool, honest and with a personal touch . Thank you Haka for making my journey a really memorable one! :) :) Keep it up!

7 days Northern Tour. Had a really awesome guide Ollie. Fast paced tour at times but amazing scenery on the travels. Was dissapointed with the Maori cultural night in Rotorua as there wasn't much on the traditional ways of Maori life. Activities on the tour were epic. Definitely coming back to tour the South!

Where do I start? It was the most incredible trip! I did a 7 day South Island tour. I am already looking at booking another tour with Haka Tours and it has only been a few weeks since I returned. If all the guides are as amazing as Katie then count me in again! When activities were cancelled due to weather conditions she went out of her way to find similar activities for us at other times on the trip .Her enthusiasm and knowledge was incredible. The nicest person you will ever meet!!!!! I was with a group of 15 fellow travelers who were travelling alone. We all got on so well! When I think of all the things I achieved and saw on my tour I think of all those other people from all over the world with the greatest of fondness.
Thank you Haka Tours for the best experience ever!!!!!!! See you again soon.

We had an incredible time on our tour and would highly recommend it, and Haka, to anyone. There was a good mix of ages so we didn't feel like the old people among a group of university students, and plenty of opportunity to pick up extra activities and tailor the experience to suit our own preferences. Our guide was knowledgeable and enthusiastic, and really did her utmost to make sure everyone was enjoying themselves. The smaller group size was ideal, and the balance between travelling and activities was just right for us.

7 day South Island Tour.
Fantastic tour. Lovely people on our tour and our super friendly, helpful tour guide Ollie was great. The tour is really fast pace. So keep in mind you need to be flexable to get the most out of it. Days are very busy if you include lots of activities and extra curricular things. Flight to Milford sound is a must! Don’t bus as you loose a whole day in Queenstown. This tour gives you a really good feel for the South Island but you will leave certain places thinking you could have spent longer. Accomodation was good. Only change I would make is 2 nights in Wanaka and 1 night in Frans Joseph. I really enjoyed my experience. Thanks to Haka Tours and to our guide Ollie for an awesome job and for the nice friendly people on my tour made for an enjoyable experience. Recommend and would travel again.

Amazing mtb tour. Fantastic guides in Damian and Morgs. Great setup and incredible riding terrain. I crashed in Christchurch, and because of that, didn’t get to finish the tour, so I’ll actually come back to finish the South Island tour in November.
Can’t recommend this tour enough

I got to see many cool places I would have never known about without the tour and I met some really great lifelong friends! The small tour size allows you to really get to know people. I was in New Zealand for a total of 2 months and my favourite part of my trip was my 1 week Haka Tour! All of the hostels were sufficiently nice although it really doesn’t matter considering you spend most of your time having fun with all of the activities. I would definitely do another Haka Tour if I ever get the chance to go back to NZ!
