  • “The farm visits were extraordinary!”

    We unanimously agreed it was the best group trip we had ever been on. We had the perfect balance of farms and towns etc but the farm visits were extraordinary!  We could not fault the organisation and the stimulation we enjoyed through travelling with Farm To Farm Tours.

  • “Top notch farm and agricultural visits”

    We have been working with Farm to Farm Tours since 2007. Our groups rave about the wonderful service, friendly people, top notch farm visits and breathtaking scenery. Farm To Farm’s ability to showcase the best of their country is most impressive. It is very evident that they have an extensive network throughout New Zealand with quality farm visits and ag related stops. The Farm To Farm tour managers always pay special attention to the individual passengers and have excellent knowledge about New Zealand agriculture.

  • “Our tour to Canada was a remarkable event!”

    Our FTF tour to Canada was a remarkable event which was far beyond our expectations. Great travelling companions and magnificent landscapes every day. It was a mighty change for us, learning much about Canada’s farming industry. Seeing the grandeur of the Rockies and glacier fields, Calgary and all its’ horse riding spectacular, stunning Niagara Falls, charming Quebec, all staggering. Glorious weather all the way.

  • “A wonderful way to see a country ”

    The hospitality was exceptional. For us it was about travelling with like-minded people and the really good mix of farming visits and touring the regions that we were in... It is simply a wonderful way to see a country and meet the people who live there.

  • “One to remember!”

    I would like you to know that our trip to New Zealand was above our expectations. The tour guide, bus driver, hotels, New Zealand people and farm hosts all made this trip one to remember and I would recommend it to anyone.
