Small Social Group Charters & Tours

We provide North Island charter transport for small groups so you can enjoy the ultimate day, weekend or week away.

Make the most of your time with friends and family by making the quintessential New Zealand road trip part of your getaway experience. By letting Thermal Land Shuttle provide your charter transport, your whole group can travel together, relax and catch up so your holiday begins the moment you leave home.

The best part of booking your North Island private transport with us is that we can customise the entire trip to suit your group’s tastes. We’ll play your music, set the air conditioning to the temperature you prefer and make all the stops you like along the way. We can even load up on refreshments in advance—just let us know what you’d like and we can make it happen.

Build a custom itinerary with Thermal Land Shuttle

We can build custom itineraries for trips of any duration, from half a day to weeks on end. We use our experience and connections to make bookings on your behalf and we have plenty of ideas to share.

A popular choice for a weekend away includes plenty food and wine in the sunny Hawkes Bay. We work with you to build a fun-filled weekend within your budget that includes all meals, sightseeing, shopping, private transport and food and wine tastings.

For group days out, the opportunities are endless! Petrol-heads can try out drift carts, jet-boating and off-roading and wash it all down with a pub lunch—or foodies can eat their way around the gorgeous Bay of Plenty. For golfers we can organise 18 holes and a delicious lunch, or adventurers might like a Waitomo adventure followed by a pub crawl home.

No matter your budget or specifications, we’re happy to take the organising off your hands. And if you’d prefer to take charge, that’s OK too! Either way, we’re here to provide safe, reliable North Island group transport in modern and comfortable vehicles—letting you relax, unwind and have as much fun as possible on your well-deserved break.
