Kia Ora and welcome to New Zealand! 

We were so pleased to hear of your selection and that you will be joining us for WSCM.

We’d like to welcome you to New Zealand, to the World Symposium on Choral Music and the to the Tour Time family. We are extremely proud to be part of the partnership bringing you to WSCM, held here in one of the most beautiful parts of the world. We have been working with the NZCF and IFCM to bring you an exceptional range of travel options and an extended tour menu to really make the most of your stay here in New Zealand.

New Zealand (Aotearoa) is the youngest country on earth. It is often referred to as “The World in Miniature.” You’ll find a variety of awesome landscapes in New Zealand, all within easy reach of each other. You can swim, surf and ski all on the same day!

Spectacular glaciers, picturesque fiords, rugged mountains, vast plains, rolling hillsides, subtropical forest, volcanic plateau, miles of coastline with gorgeous sandy beaches – it’s all here. It is no wonder that it appears as a bucket list destination for millions of people worldwide.


Starting to Build your Tour Itinerary

New Zealand has so much to offer - from rustic farmland, to sweeping volcanic vistas', to the bright city lights…your tour to New Zealand can be as colourful or as relaxing as you wish. After 27 years in business we have the experience and the contacts to ensure that you will have an experience in New Zealand that will stay with you long after you leave our beautiful shores.

We have developed a starting itinerary for your travels below, for which we have proposed a short breather here in lovely Auckland before launching into WSCM. But this really is merely a starting point, our specialty lies in taking your dreams and making them come to life. We have a range of extended tours that will give you a full menu to select from when designing your tour experience. Or come to us with your ideas and we will work with your to create a truly memorable tour.

Our experience has shown us that travellers coming from Long Haul destinations will find that the longer flight times may require a slightly longer recuperation period to allow you to get back into performance condition. We therefore highly recommend that you consider one of our 3 or 4 day tours of stunning Northland to ensure you are well rested and prepared for the start of your Symposium.


Day 1 - Arrival Auckland

"Haere Mai" - Welcome to Aotearoa (New Zealand)! Tour Time will meet you at Auckland International Airport and transfer you to your accommodation. Auckland is an antipasto of environments laid out on a huge platter to make one amazing city, boasting three harbours, two mountain ranges, 48 volcano cones and more than 50 islands. Auckland’s population has reached 1.5 million, making it by far the largest city in New Zealand, with one third of the country’s entire population.

It has spectacular views of sparkling waters and the Harbour Bridge which shows you why Auckland is known as the City of Sails. Add a sunny climate, a background rhythm of Polynesian culture, a passion for outstanding food, friendly people, wine and shopping – you’re beginning to get the picture of Auckland.

Pricing: $140.00NZD per person


Day 2 - Rehearsal in Auckland 

After breakfast we board our coach and take a scenic tour of Amazing Auckland and its surrounds. Today there is time for a rehearsal should your Musical Director require this.

“The greatest trip of our lives”

"You may think the Selwyn College choir had a good time in New Zealand. I can assure you they had a great time!

It was truly a memorable experience. Sarah concluded her tour report for the College with words such as, "We are so grateful to Tour Time and everyone who helped to make this trip possible – for many of us, it has been the greatest trip of our lives." .. I am sure she spoke for everyone.”

Rev Dr Philip Raymond, Tour Chaplain, Selwyn Chapel Choir, Cambridge University, UK.
