Our Team in NZ

Father and son Mark and Ben Van Leeuwarden are born and bred kiwis. They bring their own flare to each tour, and provide carefully crafted itineraries, ‘real kiwi’ experiences and occasionally some good humour.

Mark comes from a private investigation background while Ben used to work in advertising around the world.

The pair have hosted many New Zealand group tours, music events, and have been a part of New Zealand’s supermoto racing community for many years.

Their existing relationships give you special access to the New Zealand many tourists don’t get to see.
