New Zealand with Colin Mairs

Enjoy Rick's live Monday Night Travel party with this video recorded on May 16, 2022. Experience the fun, conviviality, intimacy, and spontaneity of joining Rick in his living room as he shares his personal, inspirational, and sometimes hilarious behind-the-scenes commentary.

Known to the Māori people as "The Land of the Long White Cloud" and to Lord of the Rings fans as Middle Earth, New Zealand is a country rich with indigenous culture, gorgeous fjords, lush rainforests, and serene beaches. Rick Steves tour guide Colin Mairs, who relocated from his native Scotland to New Zealand, takes us on a tour of his adopted homeland — from glowworm caves to Victorian towns and from Māori cultural sites to "the Edinburgh of the South." Accompanying our tour is a Kiwi feast of pavlova, Anzac biscuits, and New Zealand wine.
