It's time to embrace New Zealand

New Zealand: a world in miniature


New Zealand coach holiday specialist Grand Pacific Tours has launched an online magazine to inspire travellers.


New Zealand reached a milestone recently, moving to level 1 restrictions. We are one step closer to the Trans-Tasman borders opening, therefore now is a great time to consider New Zealand as your next holiday destination.

Although only several hours away by flight, New Zealand is unique and unlike Australia. There is something for everyone; it really is a world in miniature.

You can go from one side of the country to the next and think you've travelled through several. The jaw-dropping landscapes are unmatched.

Grand Pacific Tours, the New Zealand coach holiday specialist, offers a range of all-inclusive coach holidays. For more than 24 years, they have been providing fully inclusive, escorted coach tours for over-50s, full of authentic, innovative and educational experiences.

Travel on a modern coach with experienced crew who are there to make your journey comfortable and share their local knowledge. Your all-inclusive holiday means you can sit back, relax, enjoy the sights and make lifelong friends while everything else is taken care of.

The New Zealand coach holiday specialists have launched their new online magazine Haere Mai, to inspire and help invigorate your New Zealand travel dreams. In Mori, the phrase 'Haere Mai' is a greeting, a welcome - and they are inviting readers to come in and join their whnau (family).

This first issue follows a Dream Now, Travel Later theme. They've filled over 60 pages with inspirational thoughts, stunning imagery and the expert knowledge they have in coach touring.

A key highlight of the publication is their Ultimate Small Group Touring program, a VIP travel experience commonly referred to as "Business Class on Wheels". Be dazzled by the purpose-built Ultimate Coach featuring only 20 luxury leather seats, panoramic viewing and a level of comfort unparalleled by any other vehicle.

For those travellers who have already been to New Zealand and want to return and see another part of this special country, read about their new Top of the South Islanditinerary. Explore regions not visited by any other coach company, making it a truly unique holiday. Enjoy the outdoors, experience local food and wine and get off the main roads and experience some of the South Island's native wildlife and natural beauty.

You will also enjoy Great Kiwi Firsts by respected, retired journalist Frank Morris. Have some fun with kiwi tea towels, mouth-watering recipes and plenty of competitions.

New Zealand is a magical place, full of beautiful scenery, food, history and culture. When you are ready to travel again, Grand Pacific Tours will take you on a journey and give you a safe and memorable holiday.
