Archer Tours Mission Statement

Archer Tours is 100% committed to providing our guests with a fantastic, small group tour experience throughout New Zealand, by sharing our country's beauty, culture and the friendliness of our people.  Whether it is a one day, or twenty-one day tour, our guests will recieve 1st class, professional service and personal attention.  We will combine this with our in-depth knowledge of New Zealand history and Maori Culture, plus a lot of fun and laughter.  We believe these are the key ingredients to providing our guests with wonderful memories that will last a lifetime.

Our Statement of Responsible Tourism

New Zealand is known as being clean and green. This is mainly attributable to our low population density resulting in relatively benign environmental pressures.  There is a risk that if we are not vigilant in looking after our environment then this could threaten New Zealand's clean, green image.

Archer Tours are committed to helping keep New Zealand clean and green by;

  1. Reducing the amount of waste going to landfills by recycling paper, glass, cans, plastics and organic waste.
  2. Using hose controls when washing our vans to prevent too much run off when water is not required.
  3. Have our vans serviced every 5,000 klm's to keep them at top running efficiency
  4. Planting Native trees and shrubs, trying to attract native birds back to the city.
  5. Saving paper by not printing emails that don't need to be in printed.
  6. Re-fill print cartridges instead of always buying new.
  7. Buy only New Zealand made goods where possible.
