We toured with this company for almost 20 days in Jan, 2020. You'd think in that time we'd have come across at least a couple things to not like about them. But that wasn't the case at all. Aroha are complete professionals. Absolutely perfect planning & execution. All of the arrangements were great (hotels, transport, scheduling, etc.). We were on schedule 100% of the time. It was an absolute pleasure to tour NZ with Aroha. Special mention to Steve, our driver cum guide - wow! what a guy! A true professional. Extremely knowledgeable about everything NZ (even his restaurant recommendations were on point). We were a big group, but he remembered everyone's names. He catered to everyone's needs. Very safe driver. We were very fortunate he chose to drive us. This was an unforgettable trip thanks to Steve & Aroha. 10/10 would recommend. 10/10 would work with Aroha again.

Aroha Tours put on a trip of a lifetime for us! We went to amazing cities and and saw come incredible sights. I don't think we could have had a better tour guide and driver than Steve. He was immensely knowledgeable for all destinations we visited and went above and beyond to ensure we all had a enjoyable trip. I would like to thank Aroha Tours, Veronika and Steve for planning/organizing this trip. I highly recommend Aroha Tours.

We had one of the most memorable vacations in New Zealand in October 2019. We booked our tour with Aroha Newzealand Tours after a recommendation from a friend. They are extremely professional and understood our needs as a vegetarian family of 4 (with 3 members prone to travel sickness).
The15 day trip covering North & South Island was custom made for us with room for unexpected changes. Our special recommendations for Mr.Steve- an extremely knowledgeable gentleman, who ensured a stress-free vacation.
Aroha Tours was spectacular! We used Aroha for our 2 week honeymoon in New Zealand. The trip was beyond perfect. Veronika, the owner, planned everything to perfection according to our preferences. Our tour guides Steve and Dave were fun and knowledgeable, putting up with us on hours in the van. If you ever visit New Zealand, use Aroha! We got to know both islands in an intimate manner and had an amazing time.
I had my destination wedding in Queenstown, New Zealand this year and engaged Aroha Tours to plan a tour for my guests from Singapore. We are very impressed with the itinerary Veronika planned for us and the meticulous and thoughtful service provided by Steve, our tour guide. Our guests had a nice, relaxing and memorable time in New Zealand! All thanks to the impeccable service delivered by Aroha Tours. I have to say, this is the best tour agency we have ever engaged internationally! If you are looking for a superb, luxurious and relaxing vacation in New Zealand, look for Aroha Tours! They are the best! ❤️
Veronika at Aroha Tours planned a two week trip for my husband and me with 4 days on the North Island and 10 days on the South Island. The trip was marvelous in every way, and we unhesitatingly recommend Aroha. The tour was planned with careful attention to our preferences and great flexibility The places we stayed were lovely and welcoming. Our driver/guides (Dave and Steve) were efficient, friendly, knowledgable -- a joy to know.
An amazing experience. We first contacted Veronika 6 month ahead of our visit. Veronika made it all much simpler than anticipated. The planning process was simple. Veronika took the time to listen to us. She perfectly accommodated the criteria we provided her with, including budget, type of lodging and type of activities. Fast forward to February 2019... the visit in the South Island of NZ was absolutely amazing. We stayed in lodges that were unique and visited locations that were amazing. The locations, the food prepared for us in each location and the activities we participated in were all carefully selected by Veronika and were spot on. People likely visit the same locations but it is really all about how you get there, when you get there and everything that happens in between.
We have also greatly enjoyed the private guide that accompanied us throughout our stay. Zuzana was wonderful. Very knowledgeable and acomodating for all of our requests. Things change due to weather in a trip like ours and Zuzana, working with Veronika, was able to come up with ideas and alternative plans that proved to be great.
We recommend touring NZ with Aroha Tours and Veronika. I wish we could do it again next year.
