Our Values

Mission Statement

New Zealand Awaits’ mission is to provide our guests with exceptional travel experiences that not only enhances their lives, but also the lives of the people in the communities they visit.

Our Values

Exceptional Customer Service – we strive to provide the highest quality experience to our customers through honesty, sincerity, respect and professionalism.

Environmental Sustainability

New Zealand has spectacular natural beauty, and it’s our responsibility to do all we can to sustain it for those who come after us, future travellers and future generations. We limit our group tours to 12 travellers, lessening our impact on the environment, and allowing us to work with smaller local operators who value environmental responsibility.

Social Responsibility

Supporting local communities and small business owners is extremely important to us. We stay with local hosts where possible and stay in New Zealand owned and operated lodging when small inns or lodges are not available. We use locally owned and operated activity providers supporting them in sustaining their businesses. In return we receive exceptional experiences with real local people, not anonymous companies.
