Ahipara Luxury Travel New Zealand
Forbes "Perfect 10" - Robb Report, January 2009
In January 2009, the Robb Report ran an article on what they saw as the top ten luxury travel providers (or vacation planners) around the world. We were delighted to be included and were the only inclusion in Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific. This recognised many years of hard work on behalf of our clients. The Robb Report is in our opinion the pre-eminent luxury tourism publication.
We specialise in luxury tourism (6,5 and 4+ star) focused on connecting you with New Zealand through special people, places and activities. We don't just sell luxury accommodation.
What does this mean for you?
* we understand, monitor, and have relationships with a wide variety of New Zealand accommodation, activity, and transport providers. Some of these are commonly available, some are not. We know who is performing, who isn't and what the latest changes of management mean. We know this first-hand, not from the internet and not through other people
* we regularly and consistently put together leading edge tours of New Zealand for our clients from all around the world
* we have the ability to create, innovate, and take things as far as you want
* every tour starts with a blank sheet of paper as we build up our understanding of you. We do not put together packages and then sell them to everyone as a "one size fits all"
* we have for years been perfecting our ability to meaningfully connect our clients into the more important currents which define New Zealand
* over the years we have built up access to some very special people and places
* we have a true in-country concierge service - responsive, intelligent and effective
* our pricing is detailed and transparent
Our clients consistently tell us they are delighted and wish they could find a similar service in other countries. We have a Facebook page which you're welcome to join to gain further insights. The extensive library of newsletter articles on the website will give a further feel for what we do, as will the example itineraries we have posted. There is also a photo gallery available largely made up of our own photos featuring real people and places.
We're not a booking agency - we're a global leader in innovative, personal, responsive and experiential tourism based in New Zealand.
