5 Benefits of Making Friends in New Zealand

Travelling is all about getting out of your comfort zone and what better way to do that than to head off to New Zealand alone, jump on a fully guided tour and make a heap of new mates! 

If you are booked on a Real Kiwi Adventures group tour package to New Zealand you may be traveling alone but you will certainly meet a bunch of new friends on the trip of a lifetime!

1. MEET INTERESTING PEOPLE FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD

Travelling individually means you’ll be forced to chat to everyone on your New Zealand tour and this is the best way to make new friends! Whether you’re bungee jumping off a bridge or soaking up your surroundings in the heavenly thermal pools, there are plenty of activities on all of our New Zealand tours that will allow you to bond with your fellow travellers.

2. FREEDOM AND FLEXIBILITY

With no one else to consider when booking and planning the holiday it will be all about you! Freedom to do all of the things you’ve ever wanted to tick off your bucket list. With the safety and knowledge of a tour guide and a group of people around you so you are never lonely. To take full advantage of the freedom and flexibility of small group guided travel, check out our hop on hop off tours and get planning your next adventure!

3. DISCOVER WHO YOU ARE.

The best way to discover who you are and what you love is by spending time with new people. What's the story you tell strangers when you meet them? How do you judge new people? Challenge stereotypes of different nations by jumping on one of our Real Kiwi Adventure tours and meeting people from all over the world. Small group travel allows us to learn more about ourselves and our passions and this makes us a better person!

4. CHALLENGE YOURSELF AND GET OUT OF YOUR COMFORT ZONE

Without a close friend to rely on when travelling you’ll be completely out of your comfort zone and ready to take in all the incredible experiences and challenges we face while on holiday. There is no better place to do this than New Zealand – famous for its adventure sports and adrenaline pumping activities!

5. DRAMA FREE HOLIDAYS.

We all love our best friends but as travelling together can be pretty overwhelming we often need chill time on our own away from them. An adventure tour with a whole new group of people would be 100% drama free with no arguments or bickering to put a dampener the vacation!
