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 unique, entertaining and just a tad self indulgent. And we believe in looking after you in person, all the way.

Rent A Classic Car Tours offer a choice of escorted road trips from Nelson driving our classic or modern European sports saloons, coupes and convertibles around New Zealand’s stunning South Island. Small group sizes follow itineraries of exhilarating roads, delightful destinations, and characterful cafes, with flexibility to spend some time as you wish.

Isn’t this the grown up Road Trip you’ve been waiting for?

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 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 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, so 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. 

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.
