Group Tour Options
Rural Tours handles a large number of group tour farmstay bookings. Unlike some countries that offer one large 'ranch' with commercial accommodation on-site, Rural Tours offers accommodation on individual farms for groups of 10-300 people.
Rural Tours group booking and operations process.
You or your tour company sends us the requested dates, number of people, and preferred farm location through our booking form.
You divide your group into sub groups of three - four people per farm and send us your preferred rooming list (or we can do this for you)
We allocate each sub group to an applicable farmstay host, and send you the final rooming list for the overall group, together with the meeting place for your bus.
All hosts will meet your group at the meeting place in their own vehicle, and will transfer each sub group to their individual farm (usually within 30 minutes of the meeting place)
On the day of departure, each farm host will return their group to the meeting place.
Rural Tours group tour farmstay inclusions:
Farmstay accommodation (3-4 guests per farm)
Twin/double bedroom(s) (other alternatives also available)
Guest share bathroom
Traditional home cooked NZ dinner
Glass of beer/wine with dinner (minimum 18 years)
