I’m happy to be a referral for future clients as we have now done 2 trips with NZ self drive ( South Island and North Island) and both were faultless

The trip provided by NZSelfDrive was fantastic, but what was out of this world and will be the reason we use them again was the fantastic customer service provided. I had a very bad bicycle accident about a third into our tour. Ben Neynens pulled out all of the stops to make changes on the fly to our reservations, cancel, book new places, etc. He helped my wife to find a place to stay while I was in the hospital. He actually had another very helpful family member that was physically near me by chance provide much needed and much appreciated additional help during my injury and resulting chaos. MUCH IMPRESSED and very satisfied. We are coming back to NZ to see all that we missed due to my injury – We’ll be using NZSelfDrive again for that trip! Looking forward! Thanks!!!!!!

We were very happy having our holiday planned out for us, with some input from us. We really had little idea of where to visit in the time we had, so the suggestions and the bookings done were great! The itinerary listing out suggested stops on the way was very helpful and enhanced our visit. Thanks for all the organisation!

Ben is the ideal tour operator! He makes very helpful suggestions, very patient in understanding the group’s needs, and is very prompt with his answers when questions arise. During our trip, Ben was easy to contact when problems arose or changes had to be made with tours. No problem or question was too small or too big for him to handle. The highlights of our trip: The Hobbiton day tour, the very early walk to Lake Matheson, ATV drive in Franz Josef, drive from Franz Josef to Queenstown (Blue Waters, Mirror Lakes and The Remarkables really deserve their name), Canyon Swing in Queenstown. I would highly recommend Ben and NZSelfDrive Tour to those who are willing to go an adventure and see NZ in all its beauty! Be ready to swap drive time with other people in the group as the drives can be long, but you wont be disappointed with the routes that Ben plans for the trip.

Indulgence Tours organized the trip of a lifetime for us! Our self drive tour was seemlessly put together, eliminating the stress of trying to organizing everything ourselves. We made great use of the personalized suggestions of attractions along the way allowing us to take full advantage of the time we had. We would recommend Indulgence Tours for anyone looking to explore New Zealand for the first time, but not knowing where to start! We’ll definitely be talking about this holiday for a long time!

The service provided by both Ben and Meg initially for organizing the trip was fantastic, cities and towns picked on both the north and south island was exceptional. Their responses during the tour was also exceptional during times when you needed some confirmation on things.I would highly recommend it to anyone wanting to visit New Zealand and only way to do it is to drive through it.., and look through their website for driving options, the driving was absolutely beautiful and only issue is you need to focus on driving and not on the scenery…

We thoroughly enjoyed the tour and are already talking about visiting again. New Zealand definitely has some of the best scenery I have ever witnessed Ben did an excellent job customising the tour based on our interest and the suitability for our two young children. He even advised on the places to eat in Queenstown on Christmas day and made the reservation. We will definitely use Indulgence tours again for our next New Zealand road trip.

Ben gave very good advice on accommodation and choices for activities. He responded incredibly quickly and patiently to all our queries and was able to make changes to the plans as we kept changing our itinery. It was reassuring that all vouchers for the apartments and tours were sent in a very comprehensive email once payment was made. When he found our vehicle was too high to fit into underground carparks , he quickly found alternative parking options for us. Thank you Ben, our family of 6 had a fantastic holiday in your beautiful country!!

Our tour was fantastic, the tips for little stops while driving were great. We really enjoyed ourselves. All the stuff arranged worked just fine, great timings on Hobbiton & all the ferry crossings. The only thing we’d change would probably be the car hire company, it was bit of a hike from airport, long wait for the bus. But other than that perfect, we loved it ! Thank you Ben

NZ Selfdrive was fantastic! Since we had never traveled to New Zealand before and had group of 6 people, I wasn’t sure where to begin in booking a trip of the South Island. Ben was fantastic! He answered my many questions and provided lots of helpful information about locations and activities to suit our group, which included grandparents and two young children. We had so much fun and everyone was happy with the itinerary and activities. The packet of info provided was very helpful as it included travel times and restaurant ideas/activities/sights along our route. Best of all, Ben was very helpful when our daughter broke her arm just before we departed for our trip and we thought we better make some changes to our itinerary. Overall, we were amazed by New Zealand. It was the best vacation we have ever taken and we have NZ Selfdrive to thank for it.

I thought our tour was well researched and very well organised which provided us with one of our most treasured holidays. Also South Island New Zealand is an awesome island and an excellent holiday destination.

We really enjoyed this self driving tour. Without Indulgence tour guide we would not of know of the nice places to stay. It was very well planned out and we saw a lot of beautiful places. Thank you Ben!

New Zealand country side and highway routes we were on were stunning. I think the secret of this beautiful place is out. I hope nz stays firm with strict immigration guidelines. Foreigners always want to turn the new home into what they so desperately left..Please stay the beautiful country you are with the nicest most friendly natives. So clean, so receptive, so beautiful. Few if any places left on earth like this sweet place and they’re sweet people.

Without the help and guidance of Indulgence Tours in NZ and Sydney we would have never stayed in such nice places or seen as much as we did. Ben was so helpful whenever we had a glitch such as loosing an ipad or a change in our scheduled activities. The driving routes were planned as a beautiful drive through some of the most incredible scenery that New Zealand has to offer. Many thanks Ben. We loved our trip.

We got to see a lot of both Islands over two weeks. May have done better to slow down. Could easily spend two weeks on each island apiece. My brother has back and heart issues, so hiking was out. I thoroughly enjoyed the 2 – 4 hour hikes including some arduous climbs–climbing Rangitoto or the main ascent at Rob Roy Glacier Track I would say is similar to setting the treadmill at 3.5 with an incline of 10 for 30 min. You don’t have to go that fast and I talked with a couple in their mid70s who made it up Rob Roy. The views are worth the work, as I watched a piece of ice fall off the glacier while eating my lunch–wow! And when was the last time you caught five trout 3.5 lbs or larger in two days? That is doable in NZ. Recommendation to tourists–there is a lot to do, we picked one key thing each day, sometimes different due to my brother’s and my different interests or physical abilities. Each day was special.

We had a wonderful tour and we love NZ. The sites and sceneries were simply awesome! Some very good memories in beautiful lodges too. Food was excellent! The weather was for us not warm enough but we managed to buy warm clothes. Kiwis are extremely nice and charming and we will always remember their warm welcome. Thank you for organising our 25 days trip and maybe we will come back one day to enjoy again the best places we loved so much.

When we had a last minute change requiring a different sized rental car we really appreciated your hustle in arranging a new car after the rental car firm had told us a change was not possible. Your high service level and attention to detail is rare these days. Thanks again!

This trip was superb. After my initial vague enquiry (ie “a week around the South Island”), Ben helped me decide where to start and end the trip, and what kinds of things to see. I checked, and Ben’s prices for activities and accommodation were not inflated….so he did not add a margin, and makes his money from the “wholesalers discount” which seemed very fair for the value he added. When our tour pickup did not show up at the allocated time, we called Ben and within 10 minutes he had it sorted….they were on the way, but slightly delayed! All of our party were impressed and will use Indulgence Tours again.

We were happy and satisfied with the tour that arranged by Ben for us for the whole 14 days in South Island. mostly the itinerary was fine and details. only couple hotels were not in details (no full address). the interesting spots that we went have been very amazing and truly awesome and worth to see and visit. thank you so much and we will arrange another trip to explore the North Island.

We booked a 17day Self Drive Tour with Ben over the phone and Internet. He was very informative and offered very good advice on where we should stay and things we could do in each town. The entire booking process was fast and easy. The provided GPS unit was easy to use and had saved ‘favorites’ pre loaded which was useful for stopping along the way at various points of interest. Our Tour Manager “Ben” was always available when we called him during our road trip and was fast to respond and handle booking requests and so on. Overall, I would highly recommend NZ Self Drive Tours to friends and family when asked about booking packages to NZ.

Ben Neynens was our tour adviser and provided a fantastic service to us. From the moment we arrived in Christchurch, everything went according to plan and very smoothly. The suggested activities were ideal and suited our interests and levels of fitness, and we were absolutely amazed at the beauty of the South Island of New Zealand. Thank you Ben for your guidance and suggestions. They were very helpful and we had a wonderful holiday.

Ben Neynens of NZ self arranged a 15 day trip to the South Island for us in November 2013. We would like to thank Ben for an excellent job arranging a trip of a life time! There was so much on the internet, it was mind boggling, and Ben refined our itinerary to just what we wanted. We would highly recommend using Self Drive NZ to anybody wishing to visit New Zealand and do feel free to contact us for a referral.
