Whanganui Tours is a locally owned Tourism business combined with the rural mail delivery owned by Alois and Valerie and has an energy and passion that we share with overseas visitors and our local Kiwis. We have a suitcase full of great local stories and adventures along the Whanganui River.

We share the great experiences of the River Road on our daily mail run to Pipiriki. Great friendships and trust with our local people have been formed with daily delivery of goods, medicine and everyday needs.
( no surprise to have a crate full of puppies) or a local catching a ride to town).

What a awesome challenge it was coming from around the globe to make NZ our home to learn and absorb all the history of the beautiful Whanganui, the River Road and surroundings there is never a dull moment, a friendly farmer on his 4 wheeler with his cheerful working dogs and a road full of Sheep is part of our daily Mail Run, sometimes being stuck in the mud was a great way to get to know our locals and friends.

Being in Tourism for 30 years made me feel like coming home. Catching up with local friends and having deep conversations about this awesome part of the country is just mind blowing.

Alois’s farming background and later as a courier in a Rural Area brought us together in our passion for the Outdoors and finding a beautiful place to call home.
