Our Classic Car Tours Offering

We believe in the freedom and call of the open road, journeys to be savoured with all the senses. We want to share the joys of appreciating the landscapes and destinations of a beautiful country, touring in cars that are fun, characterful and just a tad self indulgent. And we believe in looking after you in person, all the way.

Small group sizes follow itineraries of handpicked driving routes, premium accommodation and delightful destinations. There’s flexibility for you to spend days as you wish, with optional detours and activities, driving our classic or modern European sports and convertible cars.

Let the adventure begin...

Why will you love coming on a Rent A Classic Car Tours Road Trip? Let us count the ways… 

For the Senses...

...taste, feel, savour...

Home to some of the best vineyards in the world with characterful cuisine to match, Aotearoa is a feast for the senses. The land of the long white cloud also means a lot of blue skies, with a climate between October and April ideal for relishing in what sports convertibles were made for.

Fresh unpolluted wind in your hair, no oppressive humidity, and with little urbanisation to interrupt the views, you’re free to indulge and enjoy in a way you’ll find hard to match anywhere else in the world.

For the Landscapes...

...scenery is too small a word...

You may have heard it before but the South Island of New Zealand is frequently rated as one of the most beautiful and spectacular places in the world to tour. The variety of stunning landscapes grouped on a relatively small land mass, rarely offer themselves so easily accessibly together anywhere else. Dramatic mountain ranges, gorgeous beaches, luscious forests, and racing rivers are all linked by scenic highways and inviting byways, just waiting to be explored.

For the Stopovers...

...luxurious & something special...

Rest and relax at premium boutique lodge, B&B or hotel accommodation. Hand picked and of high quality, we only stay at establishments on TripAdvisors Top 10 lists for that location, so you can trust they’ll meet excellent service standards. They also have plenty of safe parking, sleeping for two and breakfasts included in the price. 

 

For the Company...

...good, local and welcoming...

…in all senses of the word. The South Island is our home we live here all year and drive these roads in all seasons. We know the little things that make that big difference. The places the locals go and the ones they avoid.  We know the eateries, the photo spots, the hidden gems. Combined with stays at premium boutique accommodation and us escorting you to advise on optional activities from cruising on a luxury yacht to wine tasting, right down to where the last petrol station for the next 100km is and when it closes, you’ll be very well looked after in more ways than one. And in the company of fellow travellers, we hope you’ll make not just great memories, but new friends too.

 

For the Destinations...

 …characterful and evocative…

For the Roads...

...open & enticing...

Having driven in many countries, we believe the South Island of New Zealand is truly one of the best. Dramatic landscapes, twisting mountain passes, roads gliding through valleys, forests and glades, weaving by lakes, rivers and coastlines…neither you or your steering wheel are going to get bored. You’re not going to get stuck in jams either as we time our tours to avoid peak holiday periods, and with 5, 15 and 36 times more road space per car to play with than Australia, USA and the UK respectively, you have a genuinely uncrowded adventure playground. 

For the Freedom...

...all yours...

Whilst our New Zealand road trips have the security of being escorted tours along recommended routes,  you’re quite free to go your own way in your own time between our handpicked overnight stays. Cruise on a luxury yacht? Vineyard wine tasting? Theatrical muse or Museums? We’ll recommend optional group activities but they’re not part of your upfront tour cost, as we recognise your freedom to chose your own detours and delights…. 

 

And of course, for our Cars...

 …of the iconic and drop dead gorgeous, classic sports and convertible variety!

The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only one page.
