Secondary school student tours

This page is for you, so we can work together to ensure your students have the best time in the world while they are in New Zealand.

Learning Journeys' focus is on showing your young visitors around new Zealand during their weekends and school holidays while making it as easy as possible for you to build these tours into your programmes. We offer a range of tours to show secondary students the best this country has to offer, lasting one day, like our Hobbiton Movie Set tour, to ten days (North and South Island student tours), like our tour beginning in Christchurch and making a circuit of the South Island.

We also tailor tours for school groups visiting New Zealand schools for shorter exchange programmes and keen to add a few days of education outside the classroom or sight seeing and adventure to their in school experience.

As specialists setting up and running tours for secondary students, our experience in running programmes that are both seriously educational (our principals and facilitators are experienced secondary teachers) and fun, will add huge value to your product. We know what appeals to teenagers and what their priorities are and we know how to keep them safe, while they have the time of their lives.
