The appeal of New Zealand as one of the world's top travel destinations is well known - diverse and spectacular scenery, from magnificent mountains to fiords that take your breath away with their beauty, acclaimed food and wine, and adventures galore.

It's a place with some of the world's most eye-catching landscapes, secluded bays, marine reserves, island sanctuaries and historic sites. There is no single spot that captures all there is more than New Zealand.

Now imagine experiencing it all in absolute comfort on a modern coach, and with people that know New Zealand inside and out.

Grand Pacific Tours has been operating tours of New Zealand for more than 23 years and is dedicated to developing new and interesting coach holidays that showcase the unique destination that is Aotearoa - the land of the long white cloud.

Grand Pacific Tours offers five different styles of coach touring to suit all budgets and with a selection of itineraries that ensure there's something for everyone.

Here are just a few reasons to take a look at the company's tours coming up in its September 2019-May 2020 schedule.

Meet the locals, make new friends

The Maori word for family is 'whanau' and that's how you will be embraced throughout your journey in New Zealand with the family-owned and operated Grand Pacific Tours, both by the locals you'll meet as well as your experienced coach captains and tour guides.

There's also your travel family. The tours are an opportunity to share once-in-a-lifetime experiences with like-minded people who may start out as strangers but become friends after just a few days.

Let your special interest take you on a journey

Do you love aviation? Could you spend hours thrilling to the sight of aircraft going through their paces? Well, you're in luck.

Grand Pacific Tour's Special Interest Tours are innovative holidays that cater to specific interests of their travellers, and one of the most popular is the Warbirds over Wanaka Tours.

The tours give aviation enthusiasts the opportunity to experience the excitement and entertainment of internationally renowned air shows, combined with a scenic tour of New Zealand.

The Wanaka show is one of the top four Warbirds Airshows in the world where you will see the romance of aviation from the early 1900s brought to life by famous Warbirds joining forces with the classic aircraft of yesteryear and the modern jets of today to present a feast of aviation attractions.

Travelling solo

If you're a party of one Grand Pacific Tours has holidays especially for you.

The Solo Travellers tours are designed for people who choose to travel on their own or have no travel partner but enjoy the company and convenience of a group.

You'll be in good company with others in the group travelling solo as well. These tours attract people from all over the world who are looking to experience New Zealand with you.

Time to spoil yourself

For travellers looking for a bit more luxury, there are the Ultimate Small Group Tours which are exclusive to Grand Pacific Tours.

With a maximum of 20 passengers, these tours mean travellers can discover New Zealand in ultimate style.

Your full size, state of the art, coach is fitted with only 20 luxury leather seats with panoramic viewing, and you'll stay in carefully selected 4.5 star hotel accommodation and enjoy exclusive extras.

The Ultimate Coach Captains are the best in the business, attending to your needs while ensuring a very personal touring experience.

By rail, cruise and coach

To get the full experience of New Zealand you need a few different modes of transport.

How about spending the night out on Milford Sound on board the iconic Milford Mariner, or hopping on the TranzAlpine - one of the great train journeys of the world - to travel over massive viaducts and spectacular gorges as you ascend to Arthur's Pass in New Zealand's Southern Alps?.

Both are featured on Grand Pacific's Signature Coach Tours that incorporate a distinctive array of experiences including cruises and railway journeys, as well as visits to towns and cities not included in other tours.

All Grand Pacific Tours holidays include airfares, taxes, coach travel, hotel accommodation, most meals, sightseeing and attractions, meaning travellers do not have to worry about any hidden extras. There is no better way to explore New Zealand and create new memories than on a Grand Pacific Tours Coach holiday.
