Smylies Tours

Transport / Springfield

We specialise in small group tours, ski field transport and school trip transport.

Trips are always hard to plan for groups; from a 1 day trip or a tour around the South Island. 

We have been organising and running tours for our clients for over 20 years.  With years of experience dealing with the requirements of high schools and primary schools, our emphasis is on safety and supervision for your groups. 

Our other specialty is in ski field transport to ski area's like Porters, Broken River, Craigieburn, Mt Cheeseman and Mt Olympus.  We have an extensive fleet of 4WD vehicles and experienced drivers that are capable of taking 1 to 40+ to the mountains.

We are happy to share with you our extensive paperwork trail of H&S, RAM's and operations manual.  All our drivers are First Aid accredited and we carry a comprehensive first aid kit on board.  We are a Bus and Coach Association member and our passenger service licence numbers are 0288608 and 0288609

We think we are good at certain things and excel in others.

  • Day trips to Hamner Springs, Akaroa, Springfield
