We are Supreme Tours & Travel

Supreme Tours & Travel opened in 1994 and has built a very loyal customer base since that time.

The Supreme Team all have one thing in common: we are passionate about what we do, and we are always striving to ensure that we offer great value, fully inclusive, and worry free tours to a wide range of destinations. We have found that the inclusive tour options we have are perfect for those who don’t want the hassle of arranging everything themselves and having to get from A to B or deal with disruptions by themselves.

Travelling in a group with people in a similar age group means that passengers have a lot in common and have the feeling of security knowing that a Tour Manager travels with them from departure to return. We offer home pick up and return from the main centres (with a 25km area from the airport).

Having all the sightseeing, great accommodation and travelling in a luxury full size touring coach means that there is plenty of space for everyone and there are no unexpected surprises to the budget. You only need spending money and money for the odd lunch or dinner. Everything else is included. We have a lot of single travellers that join our tours as well and we can either match them with another person of the same gender or can guarantee them a single room for a supplement.

We are a small team and offer truly “personal” service. We have been able to offer single rooms at no extra charge on a selection of our tours. With a tour range which takes in local events such as Wearable Arts , Taranaki Garden Festival to the overseas tours which include our “signature” 28 days England, Ireland & Scotland Country Lanes Tour.

Many of our clients travel with us time and time again and its always lovely to see familiar faces. There are always some extra surprises on tour which we don’t mention in the brochure.

We assist with any paperwork required due to COVID restrictions which can be difficult if you are not used to uploading information on computers.

When booking in uncertain times it is important for our clients to feel that their money is safe guarded. As a bonded member of The Travel Agents Association of New Zealand you can be assured that monies are held in a bond and separate client account.

We can beat most deals on the latest cruise specials and are famous for offering ‘discounts on the discounts’ to our loyal customers.
