Kia ora & welcome to  New Zealand Educational Tours

Educational and Cultural tours of Aotearoa 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 programmes, international students, 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.

New Zealand Secondary schools: We can offer customised tours through New Zealand for those 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.

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

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.
