Our 10 Day Southern Pioneer Haka Plus Tour is one of the best loops around! Hit the road in style and get to know Te Wai Pounamu – the South Island of Aotearoa New Zealand. Soak up scenery that you have to see to believe, from the wide plains of Canterbury, to the mountains of Central Otago, to the glaciers and rainforest of the West Coast. You’ll have the opportunity to swim, kayak, jet boat, bungy jump, quad bike, skydive, canyon swing, hike, heli hike, bike, luge, horse ride, see kiwis, relax in hot pools, eat and drink like a local, and more. But only if you want to; this is your trip, and it’s designed to be flexible. We include some of the things that we reckon are absolute essentials, but rather than force you into activities you’re not so sure of, we leave the choice up to you. You can pre-book activities that you definitely want to do before the trip starts, and then add more while you’re on tour.

Time of year
They let you pay the full amount then cancel your tour because they don’t have enough bums on seats. Which I get if you can fill a tour bus then it’s not worth putting on. But letting you pay the full amount then cancelling. Taking over half a month to return your money so you…

Response from EveLawrence, General Manager at 10 Southern Pioneer Haka Plus Tour
Responded 11 Mar 2020
Hi there, Following on from the below, we have looked into this and due to bank fees and exchange rates there was a difference of just over 103.50 GBP per person. We have emailed you regarding offering you this refund as a gesture of good will, however we have not had a response from you. We have attempted again to contact you today so that we can arrange this. If you could respond so we can action the refunds, that would be fabulous. Thanks so much and again, we apologise for any inconvenience caused by the exchange rates and banking fees and look forward to hearing from you soon. Nga Mihi, Eve, General Manager - Haka Tours & ANZ Nature Tours 26 Feb 2020: Good morning RixonTe, Firstly please accept our utmost apologies for the customer service you experienced over the last few weeks. This isn't the usual way we treat our Haka Tours Whanau so we are very sorry you experienced some issues here and I will be sure to look into this. In regards to the time frame on the refund, these are set by financial providers, not Haka Tourism Group directly so sadly this isn't something we are able to change, however, we are looking into the payment details regarding the loss on your refund and hope to have a response on this for you by Friday this week. Do you have a booking reference number that we can take from you? if you could email this to firstname.lastname@example.org that would be great. Thank you Kind Regards, Eve, General Manager - Haka Tours & ANZ Nature Tours
