Judy McKenzie, Owner of Elite & Personal Tours, has been operating out of Queenstown and looking after Clients' around the South Island for over 20 years.  

Joined by her son Philip, and daughter-in-law Paula, we bring to you a locally owned and operated, family oriented business with a genuine, professional and enthusiastic approach that is sure to impress any visitor to New Zealand.

Our team is made up of a small group of professional Guides, and we specialise in personalising our products for each and every Client’s specific requirements.  We rely on industry experience, vendor knowledge, longstanding industry relationships, and intimate local knowledge with insider connections, to ensure your travelling experiences surpass your expectations.  This resonates through our mission statement.  It is the very essence of Elite & Personal Tours, and the commitment we make to each and every Client.

We understand that everyone has different approaches and priorities when it comes to travelling, and all considerations are made when we work with Clients'. That is why Elite & Personal Tours offers a diverse range of expertise, which enables us to cover all of our Clients’ travel needs. 

Whether you require airport transfers, a wine tour, sightseeing with a focus on history, hiking, biking or extended touring around the South Island, or New Zealand, we can cover it all. Whatever your travel needs are, we're here to help.

We would love to hear from you, get in touch with us today!
