LITTLE COMPANY, BIG IDEA

TRAVEL OUTSIDE THE BOX

In 1994, we had a big idea to start a little tour company in New Zealand. As our name implies, we wanted to be different—to treat visitors as friends, travelling discreetly and immersing them in our New Zealand, in all its quirky, enchanting, scenic and often hidden glory.

Twenty-three years later, our company and our flock have grown, but we are still just as passionate about sharing our home. Pour a cuppa, have a browse and when you’re ready, give us a call. We’d love to say kia ora and invite you over to our place.
