Local Transportation

Local transportation is not so expensive and if you tie up with your hotel or with our travel agency in advance, then you will find a placard announcing your arrival and ready transportation.

If not, there is absolutely no need to be apprehensive. New Zealanders have a reputation of being unassuming and absolutely trust-worthy and you can bank on these characteristics and the hospitality of the locals to see you safely to your hotel.
