Travelling with us is like taking a road-trip with your mates. We’re locals who enjoy our little slice of paradise and we want to share it with some awesome people from around the world.


We don’t take ourselves or each other too seriously, but we value our people, our country, and your adventure.


You’ve seen the photos and you’ve watched the videos…..Now it’s YOUR turn to annoy your friends who chose not to come along with your own photos and status updates (*disclaimer* there WILL be photobombing). We are incredibly lucky to call this place home, and we want to keep it in the best shape possible for all to enjoy. We are committed to being the most environmentally friendly and sustainable tour bus company in the country.


It’s no secret that New Zealand is pretty famous for adventure. We can get you to your ultimate adrenaline pumping activity before you even get the chance to chicken out! We also believe that adventure is just about getting out of your comfort zone, and trying something new. We want to challenge ourselves and to challenge you to make the most of your time here!

South Island Experts

We've spent our lives in New Zealand, and so we know the best of what the South Island has to offer.


We are travellers, we know travellers, and we love adventure. Whether you’re travelling by yourself, as a couple, or in a group, no matter the size, we have the bus and the guides for you.


Our small tour groups allow us to make stops whenever and wherever you want. With us, YOU run the show. Every day doesn’t have to start at a set time and we can spend 20 more minutes taking in a beautiful sight.


You make the schedule, we're merely here to guide you on the best damn holiday you've ever had. And trust us when we say we know how to showcase this beautiful land of ours.


We love New Zealand, we're proud of its beauty and we wholeheartedly believe in your ability to treat this land with respect and care. The team at Cheeky Kea are passionate about sustainability, which we incorporate into all our tours. Our aim is to become a tour company that leads the way in providing sustainable tours here in NZ
