  • Create an indepth understanding of how an overnight tour is planned and operated
  • Meet tourism and educational industry requirements


You are a tour guide for "On Line Tours" which has just begun running a guided overnight adventure tour in the Wanaka area.

To meet the objectives of your organisation you will be required to complete activities which will clearly outline all components of the tour:

  • Audience profile and activities
  • Accommodation
  • Dining
  • Interpretation planning
  • Practical Assessment

Students role

The activities above will be run in conjunction with the 7 night fieldtrip to Wanaka. You will plan, research, and complete all of these activities. The first four activities will be completed prior to the fieldtrip. The practical assessment will take place during the fieldtrip, where you will be required to complete the following to a required standard:

  • planning, preparing and serving a three course meal
  • group management, visitor safety and interpretation skills on a guided walk to Mt Iron


As each activity is completed you must present this to the lecturer for advice and suggestion.

Your completed work must be presented in a bound folder, with a clearly identifiable cover sheet. All research, planning notes and material along with photographs should be included as appendices to the main document.


You are required to create an itinerary which begins when your guests arrive in Wanaka at 9am and ends on the second day at 5pm.

Your itinerary must include in the activities:

  • a guided walk up Mt Iron
  • a catered evening meal

Your itinerary will be the last item to be completed.
