About Sidetracks

Sidetracks is a small and personal tour company, founded in Christchurch in 2001 with the passion and experience of owner Angelika Pastoors. Originally from Germany, Angelika has worked in the tourism industry for more than 30 years. Her experience includes managing a tour operation and travel agency in Germany and many years of work as a tour guide, both in Germany and New Zealand.

Since its founding, Sidetracks has run small-group nature tours in New Zealand, mainly for the German speaking market. Throughout the years, however, we have repeatedly received requests from Kiwis to explore our native Germany with us in the same way: through the eyes of a local. We listened! Since the European summer season 2013 Sidetracks offers tours to Germany.

Most members of the Sidetracks team are native Germans who have been living in New Zealand for many years. With us, you'll feel right at home: we understand the 'Down Under' way of life and the German way of doing things too. So, if you are interested in visiting the heart of Europe – let us take you where the locals go!
