Specially-Curated, Ultra-Small Group Tours
We offer a range of unique, personally-escorted tours in New Zealand and, when possible, beyond.
Our small but fabulous range of escorted tours are created with care, taking guests to places we know well. Come with us within New Zealand - and, when possible, beyond ...
Our trips are like no other, as we approach things in a fresh modern way.
Our (G) trips are designed at a Gentle pace, with a perfect blend of discovery and relaxation in mind.
These trips specifically cater for seniors and those who need a level of support and assistance. Ideal for those with mobility issues as we can cater for that.
(Full personal care/nursing is not offered).
Our (A) trips add in a few more Active elements - walks and activities that invite you to give it a whirl. Nothing too onerous, but these trips encourage you to get the body moving. These trips require moderate level of fitness.
The BEYOND points of difference for ultra-small group travel are:
"Ultra-small group" means really small i.e. 4 to 8 people, depending on the trip.
Some companies say "small group" but this often still means 20+ people.
At BEYOND, we really do mean ultra small!
(If it's just you and/or a friend, then our PTC Service may be best).
We recognise that many people are solo travellers - but still want company. All our trips are based on Single occupancy. Our philosophy is that paying more because you're travelling solo is wrong. Therefore, we plan and price everything on a Single basis.
But you don't travel alone, you'll be part of a small and select group!
However, if you're a couple or wish to bring a partner or friend on a share basis, you'll get a discounted rate. Bonus all round!
All trips are designed for seniors and those who need assistance and/or desire company to travel, at a Gentle pace. (These are our G-trips).
Some trips also offer a version with more Active components for the mobile and reasonably fit who are up for a bit of a challenge. (These are our A-trips).
Either way, satisfaction is guaranteed!
This means our itineraries are flexible! Most group tours operate on set dates with very set itineraries and little flexibility. However, BEYOND's approach is much more supple than that. Rather than lock in absolute dates, which is limiting, we work with you to determine and book the most suitable dates. This will take into account seasons, school holidays, even tides and full moons (best weather!)
We market the itinerary that we've created; you express your interest; and, once all places are taken, we collaborate together to finalise the dates and details. Then off we go.
Because our groups are so small, it's possible to approach it this way, as long as you have a measure of flexibility.
Our trips are hi-spec, personally-curated and fully-escorted. With their tailor-made aspect, they are designed for people seeking a top-end and very personal experience with a down-to-earth and behind-the-scenes approach. Join us on an exclusive, all-inclusive trip to discover new places and make new friends. There will be special surprises, and a chance to engage with locals.
