Independent Daily Departures

13 to 15 day itinerary suggestions

A two week holiday can allow you to explore so much more of New Zealand by coach. Without the worry of tiring as you drive you will be able to get to many more destinations than on a self drive itinerary.
These options can all be customised so if you'd like to see more of one area and less of another just pick up the phone or send us an email and we will adapt the bus tour to suit you.
