Chauffeur Driven Tours & Transfers around the South Island by classic Jaguar Daimler

Grant Oneself the Royal Treatment…

Our Classic Chauffeur Services Offering

Experience . . .

Share the joys of the open road, of journeys to be savoured, of appreciating the unique landscapes and destinations of a beautiful country…no matter what duration the journey.

Refined . . .

Travel in true style, a discrete and yet purposeful presence. The unmistakable aroma of rich leather, the craftsmanship of real burr walnut veneer with gold inlay, a place both exclusive and a tad self indulgent.

Delight . . .

Every journey should have a sense of occasion, no matter how long the duration. And we believe in looking after you in person. Whether for a custom transfer to your accommodation, a wedding, to a tour lasting a few hours or a few weeks, our aim is to delight you all the way.

 

If your call is to roam, then call Roam James…

Why will you love being driven by Roam James? Let us count the ways… 

For the Service...

...reliable, relaxing & Royally refined...

Whether you require chauffeur driven services for a tour, accommodation transfer or wedding in the Nelson region, Roam James can make all of them a majestic event. Our 1995 Daimler Six Majestic long wheel base saloon is similar to the one alongside used personally by Queen Elizabeth herself…so you know you’ll be travelling in a car of impeccable pedigree and sumptuous luxury. Why not grant yourself the Royal Treatment?

For the Landscapes...

...scenery is too small a word...

The South Island of New Zealand is frequently rated as one of the most beautiful and spectacular places in the world to tour. The variety of stunning landscapes grouped on a relatively small land mass, rarely offer themselves so easily accessibly anywhere else. Dramatic mountain ranges, gorgeous beaches, and luscious forests are all linked by scenic highways, just waiting to be explored.

 

For the Destinations...

 …characterful and evocative…

For the Stopovers...

...luxurious & something special...

If you have yet to book your own itinerary, we can recommend premium local luxury lodge or hotel accommodation. Hand picked, characterful and of the highest quality, all establishments are in TripAdvisors Top 10 for that location, so you can trust they’ll meet excellent customer service standards. Alternatively, we can link you up with trusted tour planning companies.

 

For the Company...

...dedicated, discrete & courteous...

On a chauffeur driven tour you’ll spend a lot of time in the company of the car and driver, so you’ll want re-assurance about several things. The car is quiet, smooth, safe and spacious for 1 to 3 passengers. All get leather padded armrests and electrically adjustable rich leather seating. And a driver with over 30 years of no accidents driving experience across many environments and countries, who can be as engaging or as quiet as you prefer. The South Island is our home and we drive in it all year round. We know the little things that make that big difference. The Nelson Tasman places the locals go and the ones they avoid, the photo spots, the hidden gems. All ways, you’ll be well looked after.

For the Roads...

...open & enticing...

Having driven in many countries, we believe the South Island of New Zealand is truly one of the best. Dramatic landscapes, mountain passes, roads gliding through valleys, forests and glades, weaving by lakes, rivers and coastlines…and you get premium view seating. You’re not going to get stuck in jams either as with 5, 15 and 36 times more road space per car to play with than Australia, USA and the UK respectively, you have a genuinely uncrowded road network. 

For the Freedom...

...all yours...

Your wish is our command. Cruise on a luxury yacht? Vineyard wine tasting? Theatrical muse or practical Museums? A heli-hike or walk to a waterfall?  Golf or Gannets? Whatever your interests or to do lists, we can advise on your own itinerary or link you with specialist organisers. Whether you’re efficiently planned or wildly spontaneous, we’ll take you there with the minimum of fuss, maximum of flexibility.
