Highlight sightseeing activities involve Waitomo Caves and Fiordland National Park or immersive cultural experiences, such as a three-course traditional Maori feast, and tours of cities and towns on all itineraries. 

Railbookers Group President & CEO Frank Marini said the NZ trips answer the call of growing customer demand for independent rail holidays in this popular destination.
