Awesome Tours New Zealand - About


Now in my 15th season as a tour operator, I am proud to offer only our own hand-crafted, best Dunedin small group tours & itineraries to our clients. We truly love showing off Dunedin, Central Otago, Otago, Southland, Catlins, Fiordland and the rest of the South Island to others. Our hope is that they will love our favourite places as much as we do.

Best Dunedin small group tours

We have worked hard to make sure that we continue to offer the same small group sizes that we started with. Our plan is to continue to offer small group tours with our own itineraries and led by ourselves personally, for as long as we continue to do business. We can’t think of a better way to visit the places that we love so much and enjoy going back to again and again. By designing, arranging, and conducting each tour personally we know that you are going to get the best experience available.

We also specialize in designing tours for groups of 2-19 and individual holiday planning for multiday tours around the South Island. From accommodation to transportation and sightseeing we will handle all the arrangements leaving you with nothing to do except enjoy the finest that New Zealand has to offer.

Our story

Having travelled extensively throughout New Zealand, Australia, Japan & Europe, I know what it means to share the love of a country and all it has to offer our visitors and locals alike. Our scheduled tours are small intimate tours limited to 2–19 people to provide a more personal experience. Keeping the number lower allows us to take advantage of many accommodations, eateries and sightseeing attractions that would not always be available to larger groups. It also allows us to veer off the beaten path and get a true feel of the country and its inhabitants.

Awesome Tours NZ is a New Zealand family business founded in 2006 by Mark. His son Daniel has been onboard since the beginning providing strategic support, all the marketing material, & website. Daughter Laura & partner Sam, after returning from overseas travel, contributed as videographers for the website and other social media.
