Meet Absolute Aotearoa
What are we all about? It’s in the name – Aotearoa, New Zealand!
We have travelled New Zealand extensively and enjoy being out on the road. You’ll find that one of our favourite things to do is share our beautiful country with those who want to see it!
Founded in 2010, Absolute Aotearoa is a small independently owned business, providing professional planning when booking travel in New Zealand. Being a small company ensures quality, attention to detail and adds a personal touch. Our love for the country and all its many amazing aspects to show people means that no two tours we run will ever be the same.
New Zealand has amazing options on offer, from stunning scenery and beautiful people, to adventurous activities and comfortable accommodations. Absolute Aotearoa is sure you will share in our enthusiasm when you and your group are travelling New Zealand with us.
Together our owners Cam and Amanda have a wealth of experience in the travel and tourism industry; ranging from coach touring, guiding and operations, through to accommodation management. With over 20 years’ experience driving all types of heavy vehicles on New Zealand roads in all kinds of weather and completion of a number of defensive driver training courses, the knowledge of New Zealand’s roads are excellent. Not only that, but we have built up a network of fantastic contacts both in and out of the tourism industry, and a knowledge of some amazing hidden gems to see along the way.
Your tour vehicle will be driven by knowledgeable, friendly and relaxed drivers that feel most at home travelling with a group. With many years travel under our belts from touring New Zealand, it’s about time we show you around our back yard.
So sit back, relax and let us do the driving.
