Private or Shared Tour?

This tour started as a shared tour for couples but some people asked if they could have a private group. The shared tour is a cost effective package for 2 or 3 and has better availability, a private tour is better suited to groups of 5 or 6 and can be customised to suit your preferences. If you are on a cruise you will need to book a private tour and add a Lyttelton pick up.

What does it cost?

The cost of your tour will depend on how many people are in your group and whether you choose a Private or Shared Tour.

For example a private tour for 6 will cost $139pp (plus booking).
