Sharing the Wonder of New Zealand

A Journey of Gratitude and Inspiration

As the founders of Discovery School Tours, we embarked on this journey driven by a profound sense of gratitude and a deep desire to give back. Having experienced the incredible hospitality and warmth in the Middle East, India, and Southeast Asia, we felt compelled to repay the kindness by introducing students to the wonders of New Zealand.

Our personal travels and encounters with diverse cultures opened our eyes to the transformative power of educational experiences. We witnessed firsthand how exposure to new environments, ideas, and perspectives can shape young minds and ignite a lifelong passion for learning. Inspired by these experiences, we set out on a mission to provide students from Malaysia, the Middle East, and India with the opportunity to discover the magic of New Zealand.

Through Discovery School Tours, we aim to create unforgettable journeys that blend education, adventure, and cultural immersion. We want to offer students a chance to witness the breathtaking landscapes, vibrant cities, and rich heritage that define New Zealand. Our carefully crafted itineraries showcase the beauty of these countries while providing students with valuable educational experiences.

We believe that travel is a powerful catalyst for personal growth and understanding. By enabling students to explore new horizons, we hope to broaden their perspectives, nurture their curiosity, and inspire a sense of global citizenship. We want to foster an appreciation for cultural diversity, promoting mutual respect and understanding among young individuals.

At Discovery School Tours, we recognize the responsibility we have to our students, their families, and the communities we serve. We are committed to curating exceptional educational experiences that not only showcase the wonders of New Zealand but also instill values of respect, leadership, innovation, and sustainability. Our goal is to empower students to become compassionate, open-minded, and engaged citizens who can make a positive impact in an ever-changing world.

Launching Discovery School Tours is not just a business endeavor; it is our way of expressing gratitude for the kindness we have received during our travels. We are humbled by the opportunity to facilitate meaningful connections and create lifelong memories for students, just as we have been blessed with unforgettable experiences ourselves.

Join us on this extraordinary journey as we pay homage to the incredible hospitality we have encountered and inspire the next generation of young explorers and leaders. Together, let us embark on a voyage of gratitude, discovery, and inspiration.

With heartfelt appreciation,

Ben Neynens and Matt Harris
