Oh, the places you'll go...

March Mystery Tour

Confusing street sign

You're off to great places, today is your day. Your bus is waiting, so get on your way! - Dr Seuss

After the incredible success of our last mystery tour we've been asked to do it all again. So with that, pack your bags and get set for a week full of surprises, interesting activities and one destination in particular we highly doubt you've ever been to.

The adventure is in the journey itself, not the destination. We've taken care of absolutely everything so you can sit back, relax and take it easy.

Say yes to new adventures!

Tour highlights


Day 1


You didn't think it would be that easy, did you? Trying to sneak a peek at our mystery itinerary.. good try, but no luck!

Look, to be honest there's not much we're going to give away about this tour. The fact is it's a mystery, and therefore part of the fun is the element of surprise.

However, we do promise an incredible tour visiting locations we are positive you've never been to before, and travelling roads you haven't ever considered travelling on. We provide a wide range of delightful accommodation where you'll be close to gorgeous beaches, rain forests, and ocean views, and we promise you pure comfort in the middle of the wild.

We'll uncover fascinating history that has shaped our country into how it is today, and rub shoulders with the locals in every destination along the way.

As always, meals will be delicious, plentiful, and unique to the area. So take a leap of faith and join us on this most memorable journey into the unknown.  With surprises at every turn, this truly incredible tour is not to be missed!

A drive fit for royalty.

Feast on the namesake.

Just a short stroll from the beach.

Frequently asked questions

Can I earn Air New Zealanad airpoints on my flights?

Yes, you can earn airpoints with Take It Easy Tours when we are using Air New Zealand flights. All you need to do is get in contact with us and let us know your airpoints number for each time you wish to earn points.

Can you collect me from my door?

Yes, it would be our pleasure. We can arrange for you to be picked up and returned to your front door at the conclusion of any tour.

How about travel insurance?

We strongly recommend taking out travel insurance as soon as you book your trip. It just puts your mind at ease. Remember to make sure you are covered for and loss of personal possessions, sickness, accidents or travel delays. Feel free to ask us for any tips to make this quick and easy for you.

How active are your tours?

We are called Take it Easy for a reason as we like to do just that. Do as much or as little as you like - after all it's your holiday! However, there is walking and various activities on each tour that require various levels of fitness. Please check with us if you are unsure about anything and relax knowing that there's always another option for you if you would rather miss out on any activity. We always have a back up plan.

I have some dietary requirements?

Please just let us know in advance and we will sort everything for you. Chefs are used to all sorts now when it comes to diet so as long as we know - we’ll have you covered.

What happens if I have to cancel?

Cancellation charges do apply so again we recommend travel insurance. Our cancellation policy is clearly outlined for each tour so make sure you cast your eye over it and please feel free to ask any questions.

What kind of accommodation do we stay in?

Having a good night's rest after a day out touring is very important so we personally choose all of our accommodation. Generally, four star accommodation when available - with all the comforts you need for a relaxed night.

What types of transport do we use?

Our buses are quality touring coaches that are very comfortable and fully air conditioned. They range in size from 19-28 seats ensuring that we can easily access all those secret spots off the beaten track. All vehicles are regularly serviced as your safety is our priority.

Coaches and luggage trailers are always locked and secure but we recommended you take any valuables with you when staying overnight.
