Kia ora & welcome to  New Zealand Educational Tours


New Zealand Educational Tours ran some very successful tours through June and July for those students who were about to head home, giving them a trip of a lifetime to send them off!

We've now turned our attention to our September-October school holiday tours which are available for booking on our website now.

We have Covid-19 ready plans in place should we need to travel under level 2 restrictions.

We're also mindful that many long term students, particularly from Asia will stay through the summer months, so we are working on travel options for them. If you have any special requests, or would like a private tour for your school or region, then please get in touch.

We are still taking expressions of interest from inbound groups from overseas for 2021 and beyond who may wish to travel New Zealand when retrictions ease.

 We are also offering South Island tours for New Zealand school groups wanting a focus on Geography, History, Geology and Biology.  We here at NZET have travelled the world extensively and there is really 'no place like home'. So if you want to explore the four corners of the most beautiful country on earth - please get in touch and we'll see what we can do! We can cater for all sizes of school groups.

Be safe and be kind everyone :)

New Zealand

We are lucky enough to live in a beautiful diverse country and our passion is to share our place with people from all over the world and take you on a learning journey of New Zealand. For over 25 years we have been providing educational, adventure and special interest tours in New Zealand for schools, universities, study abroad programs, travel and educational agents.  We have hosted thousands of people from pre-teens and mid-twenties to over 80 years.  They have left New Zealand with wonderful stories to tell,  experiences to share and a yearning to return.

Our local ‘Kiwi’ tour managers, personalised customer service and a commitment to care and safety will ensure you have a holiday of a lifetime.

The Tiaki Promise

We run our tours according to 'The Tiaki Promise'. Tiaki means to care for people and places. New Zealand is a beautiful country, and everyone has a responsibility to look after it. This promise ensures that New Zealand is kept clean and beautiful for future generations. We ask those who travel with us to follow this promise so that you too become a guardian acting to preserve our beautiful home, Aotearoa.
