Safety First


Safety is our top priority at Mini Tours.

All vehicles in our fleet are registered as "Commercial Passenger Service Vehicles" and undergo thorough inspections every six months by independent testing centres to ensure their safety and reliability.

Our drivers hold a "Passenger Endorsement," authorizing them to legally transport passengers, and our company is registered with the government, holding a "Transport Service Licence.".

Operating personal vehicles for passenger transport without proper endorsement is illegal and compromises safety.

For added peace of mind, Mini Tours carries a NZD 5 million public liability insurance policy, ensuring protection for all our customers.

We're proud to hold the official Qualmark quality certification, awarded by the New Zealand tourism industry. Regular audits assess our performance in areas such as health and safety, vehicle comfort, staff training, and emergency response. Our commitment to excellence has earned us a Silver rating.

Mini Tours' guides are highly trained and experienced, adept at managing the flexible itineraries of "small-group" travel and handling various situations with ease. Supported by a dedicated team, our guides receive full support to address any sudden changes or accidents, ensuring passengers' well-being throughout the journey.

Daily reports from the guides keep the team informed, ensuring a smooth travel experience for all passengers. With Mini Tours, you can relax and enjoy your trip, knowing that our team has everything under control.

We understand that many itineraries involve long-distance journeys, which can pose safety risks and limit passengers' enjoyment.

When designing itineraries, we prioritize avoiding long drives and extended periods in the vehicle. Our goal is to ensure travellers can fully experience the joy of their vacation without feeling confined.
