Peter Birchall

Peter and Xiaoli Tours have been operating since 2009. Based at Waipapakauri Ramp on the edge of the iconic Ninety Mile Beach but doing private/exclusive tours throughout New Zealand. Over 50% being in the South Island. 

Language spoken is English but if Cantonese or Mandarin required Xiaoli will join the tour.

Peter is licensed to drive small through to the largest of passenger vehicles. Holds the essential DOC license and one of only 2 private tour guides licensed to drive Ninety Mile Beach in the very far north of New Zealand.

Peter hails from a background of very senior management of Auckland Advertising Agencies retiring to a more peaceful life in the very far north of New Zealand aged 54, to follow passions of fishing and photography. 

Xiaoli had been in very big business in various parts of China before marrying Peter 2009. Together setting up FISH FAR NORTH Ltd, a small homestay on Ninety Mile Beach. This grew to be one of the fastest growing tourism businesses in the very far north.

Peter developed the tour side under Peter and Xiaoli Tours doing multi day guided sightseeing tours throughout New Zealand but with an orientation to the South Island. Xiaoli joins on tour if Cantonese or Mandarin required.

If you want a down to earth tour guide that knows New Zealand well. Knows the best photography spots. Knows when to be a prominent tour guide and when to fade away so you have your space, then Peter is your man.

We do not specialise in any one area but have a very extensive knowledge of the whole of New Zealand.. WE do tours planned to accommodate a brief we ask customers to supply. You want particular elements included, then brief us. 

We hire the vehicle to meet the brief. If you need accommodation booked we will do. We just need know whether you want 3, 4 or 5 star or maybe homestay.

 Our business in the very far north is largely niche marketed to the Chinese market because of Xiaoli's background. But the multi day tour business which Peter handles is all nationalities.
