Be Captivated by Culture

Whether you’re a seasoned traveller or new to the experience, Southern Exposure Tours caters for active over 50's who want to experience the world in a unique way. Our guided tours take people to exotic destinations throughout Europe, Asia, South America and Africa. Through the eyes of our guides, you will see, hear and taste far more than the average traveller.

When we think, ‘group tours’ the last thing we picture is a large tour bus carting people from museum to museum. By focusing on small group, intimate experiences, we’ve been able to maintain our relationships with our amazing local contactsThis means your authentic group tour will feel as though you’re travelling with a bunch of like-minded friends, rather than in a group.

We know it can be difficult to find a small group tour that truly cares about your experience, especially for seasoned travellers. There’s nothing average about the way we show New Zealanders the world. So, if you're not a ‘group tour person’, you've come to the right place.

We’ve taken people cycling through South East Asia, hiking across South America and shown them just how much different cuisine you can fit into a single walking holiday. Our travellers are quickly becoming a like a large, wonderful extended family; meeting on our tours again and again in exotic and far-flung corners of the earth. 

So join us, and forge new friendships on the trip of a lifetime.
