About Us

Tours for you welcomes you to Taranaki or the ‘Naki’ as it is fondly called by the locals. You will travel in vehicles that are air conditioned, have great visibility, and are very comfortable. Seating is available for up to six people. We can however cater for larger parties with bigger vehicles if required.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any requests. There may be a family gathering with a special place to go to, or it may be to organise a sober driver for a function you would all like to enjoy. How about a trip for your visitors while you work. We would love to hear your ideas, and we will see if we can help you with them.

The prices do not include meals or entrance fees. Bring with you clothing to cope with four seasons in one day and comfortable walking shoes.

I was born and raised in Taranaki and so have a lifetime of experience and knowledge to entertain you with as we drive around the province.
I would love to show you the icons, as well as the lesser known treasures of our great region.
