Responsible Tourism

As one of New Zealand's largest transport operators, we understand that what we do has an impact on the environment. We are proud to be rated as an Enviro Silver rated operator by Qualmark.

Transport in New Zealand is one of the main contributors to our carbon footprint, with most of it generated by cars or other rental vehicles. Independent assessments indicate that a visitor to New Zealand will create a 90% lower carbon footprint if they use shared transport services than if they drive themselves in a modern 2.0 litre rental car. By travelling with GreatSights, you can lower your carbon footprint and ensure New Zealand’s natural wonders will be preserved for future visitors.
