Greymouth Tours & Holidays

Nestled in the heart of New Zealand’s west coast lies a place loved for its dramatic history and natural beauty. 

Built on the back of a mining rush in the mid-1800s, Greymouth has transformed from a lesser-known town to a 'must-visit' destination. It has a fascinating past and booming cultural scene - including a recreated pioneer town and local breweries. Learn about the region’s pounamu history (jade hunting) on our Greymouth tours and holidays, or wander the various nature trails beside the aptly named Grey River. A day or two spent in this charming small town makes you think you’ve struck gold.

New Zealand Uncovered (Southbound)

Janine · Traveled March 2024
This trip was amazing. Such a beautiful country with plenty to see and do. Highlights for me were Milford Sound and the Franz Josef helicopter. Great group and an excellent guide who went the extra mile for us providing options to do during our free time if wanted. Highly recommend doing this trip North to South as the islands are vastly different to each other and finishing with the South was a perfect ending.

New Zealand Amplified (Northbound)

Carla · Traveled March 2024
This was such an incredible trip, I only wish I had booked on to a longer tour! The range of activities was excellent, so you could be as extremely adventurous or as slightly adventurous as you wanted. From day one our guide Connor was friendly, organised and knowledgeable. To be shown such an amazing country by someone who is clearly passionate about his home and engaged with more responsible tourism made for a trip I will never forget!

Premium New Zealand Encompassed

Jonathan · Traveled February 2024
New Zealand - 5 Stars. Wayne (our tour leader) - 5 stars. Intrepid - 2 stars. Coming on this tour you know you are going to be impressed with the scenery, the friendliness of the people and the focus on environmental conservation. You will not be disappointed. The itinerary is good - if a little breathless at times - and if you have the same guide we did you will be guaranteed a wonderful time. The only shadow cast over our trip was due to the lack of care provided by Intrepid. Watch out for “feature stays” being replaced by much lower class accommodation with no notice or compensation. And don’t expect a response if you need to contact them.

Premium New Zealand Encompassed

Liliana · Traveled February 2024
As expected, NZ is a beautiful country with breathtaking sceneries and waterfalls. You see unique birds like the mountain parrot ( they are a treat) and of course the kiwi ( seen in enclosures). The trip feels rushed in some areas where it was really scenic and you just have to pass without even taking a photo. Milford Sound is a highlight. Hotels are a mixed bag, best was in Franz Josef. Overall, an unforgettable trip, but it could be a lot better.
