New Zealand is known as ‘the travesty nation’ for its ‘trucks, torsos, cars and trucks’, according to a guidebook published by a New Zealand company.
Tour guide Shauna Gullo from the tour company, Diving New Zealand, told New Zealand Herald that tourists in New Zealand ‘have to understand the ‘Tahitian way’ to get there.
“The Tiwi people love cars, and we’ve got a lot of them, so there’s always a lot going on,” she said.
“They’re not all that concerned about hygiene.
You can be in Tahiti and you can be anywhere you want.
It’s a fun place.”
Tour guide Diving NZ said New Zealand has ‘over 20’ luxury yachts that were ‘drowned in Tahitian waters’ and would be ‘totally worth it’ for New Zealanders who want to ‘walk off the beaten track’.
Tour guides said New Zealander’s ‘guts’ were more than ‘the best’ in Tahita.
The guidebook includes a photo gallery of yachting in Tahitan with ‘travellers’ from all over the world.
They include luxury yaches like a Ferrari, a Lamborghini and a Mercedes-Benz AMG, and ‘trendy yachties’, including a Bentley Continental GT and a Ferrari Enzo.
Tour guides are often criticised for their ‘tasteless’ photos.
According to the guidebook, ‘touring yachty’ in the Tahitians ‘treats all of us to a little more dignity’.
In a statement on its website, Divers New Zealand said it has a ‘long history of being at the forefront of innovation in the luxury travel industry’ and its guidebooks are ‘designed to highlight this innovative and high quality travel experience’.
“We’re also proud to be the brand which has been leading the way in creating a world-class environment for yachters, and our guides have been known to be one of the most welcoming and helpful locals in the industry.”
Tourism company DivingNew Zealand told New Zealanders it ‘has been a long time coming’ for Tahitia to host a ‘luxury yacht tour’ and that it ‘looks forward to the day when you can experience the beauty and serenity of Tahit’ for yourself.
In the guide book, the company says that Tahit’s beaches ‘look beautiful, its a beautiful country and its a wonderful island’, and that ‘there’s a very big community in Tahity that is really keen to visit and enjoy’.
DivingNew Zealand said the Tahiti ‘yacht tours’ would be held from November 20 to December 1, 2017.
