Coach touring is a style of holiday that offers the traveller numerous advantages over independent travel.

Coach holidays remove the stressful elements of travel as everything is pre-arranged and organised by your tour coordinator.

You can sit back and relax in five star, fully air-conditioned luxury and enjoy professional commentary from an experienced coach captain.

Coach touring caters for both groups and couples, but is especially advantageous for the solo traveller as it enables you to see New Zealand with a group of like-minded people and eat together at meal times. You can register to have a twin share room with another single traveller to save costs or if you prefer you can choose to pay a single supplement.

Travellers can choose between a wide variety of tours that differ from 5 to 23 days and depending on the tour you select are usually fully inclusive of airfare, accommodation, most meals and a wide range of pre-paid attractions.

New Zealand Travel Experts works with a number of coach tour providers, however from experience find that Grand Pacific Tours and Kirra Holidays are some of the best. Please see below for further information.
