Travel in comfort around the South Island of New Zealand
Designed for small groups, our vehicles have individual seating, air conditioning and plenty of room for luggage. Maps, reference books and binoculars are provided for guests’ use and we make plenty of refreshment stops as we tour.
Canterbury Trails has a fleet of 8 vehicles, ranging from a 3 seat Mercedes 4WD to a 10 seat Mercedes Sprinter.
All vehicles are spacious, feature a high level of comfort and are fully compliant with New Zealand’s transport regulations as administered by Land Transport New Zealand for passenger service. They are fully insured and are covered by our corporate AA membership. The vehicles are regularly serviced to rigorous standards by qualified commercial vehicle technicians and mechanics. The vehicles also carry chains (for snow conditions), first aid kits and fire extinguishers. Our guest’s luggage is carried separately in a trailer if required. The vehicles are methodically cleaned before each tour and during a tour when necessary. A back up vehicle is always kept available.
For our small group tours, and exclusive private tours, we use our luxury Mercedes fleet. For our larger groups we use our Mercedes Sprinters. Our dedicated tour vehicles are extremely well appointed, being fitted with individual high back seats (with seat belts), stereo p/a systems and are air-conditioned.
On board, we carry maps, binoculars, NZ natural heritage reference books, water, refreshments, tissues and mints.
