Smylies Tours

We’re a locally owned company run by passionate hands-on owners who believe in going the extra mile to ensure you and those with you get the maximum out of your travel with us.

We’re lucky to have the South Island of New Zealand as our playground and we like nothing more than sharing that and the rest of New Zealand with you.  Keeping local is what we do.  We’re local, we work with local companies and we keep our tour experiences authentic.

With over 20 years of experience, we understand what works for all kinds of groups be they international students, schools, universities, seniors, skiers / boarders and everything in between.  We can look after your every transport need be it single transfers, day trips, multi day tours, ski field transport or movie set work.  We can take 1 – 100+ people.   

With a modern comfortable fleet and mainly 4WD vehicles safety is our mantra.  We can get you to pretty much any destination you want.
