Little Green Tours offers personal and friendly guided tours that are custom designed and great for solo travellers and seniors. Because they are safe and stress free you can sit back, relax and enjoy the sights.

We have a number of options in Rotorua from  highlights only, to Half and Full Day tours so you can decide how much you want to see. Multi day short stay tours take in all the main attractions of the north island  from Auckland to Napier  and we can pick up from Auckland or Rotorua Airports.

Discover the elements of Earth, Air, Fire and Water in their natural surroundings. Along the way we will see native bush, dramatic landscapes and geothermal wonders and all the must-see attractions such as the Waitomo Caves, the Coromandel and Hobbiton plus lots of hidden gems.

But if a simple nostalgia trip is what you want, to see places you’ve not seen for a long time, and want to take a slow trip through rolling countryside and quaint little towns, Little Green Tours specialises in this sort of travel. We love to take the backroads and enjoy a slow journey with the flexibility of stopping along the way because we travel on your time, not ours.

Supporting the Tiaki Promise and Gen Less principles of less carbon and less waste is important to us, so we travel in a comfortable fully electric vehicle with no carbon emissions. Sustainable Travel is the future of tourism according to Lonely Planet We agree it is important so we play our part by leaving a light footprint on the environment and encourage you to join us.
