Anything is possible with New Zealand Coach Tours

At NZ Coach Tours we choose only the best coach tours out there. We have up to date knowledge and experience, so we can give you the best advice on which tour is right for you. We can combine tours, maybe one tour that offers the best in the North Island and one that offers something different for the South Island. Our range of independent tours depart daily and we can custom design these to suit you perfectly. We have lots of accommodation options, activity ideas and of course these tours depart every single day.

We can even add on self-drive tours if you wish. Many of our guests enjoy a North Island coach tour and then choose to self-drive the quieter South Island. It's a great way to experience everything NZ has to offer and with our sister company, New Zealand Self Drive Tours (www.newzealandselfdrivetours.co.nz) we have the expertise to do that too. So give us a call today and we can guide you to the best choice so that your New Zealand holiday will be unforgettable.

Testimonial list

“A great taste of all the places we went to. Very helpful, an enjoyable experience.”

C Birch & C Hellyer, 11 Day Crays, Castles & Fiords, Travelled on 9th April 2021

“Generally, the tour was fabulous.....accommodation, transport, etc. The coach drivers were very informative and clear in their presentation , except for second leg driver on 25th who was mumbling and was eating his words which were so inaudible. Also, no smiles when joining the trip on his coach. The lady driver before him was so professional and polite and friendly. We enjoyed the trip immensely and have been promoting this tour to our family and friends on a daily basis. A big thank you to you.”

Kiran and Betty Chandra, Southern Highlights with Milford Sound, Travelled on 24th January 2021

“The trip was amazing, we loved it. The entire process - providing us with the sights that we wanted to see (majestic), our accommodation (amazing) we were so fortunate for the comforts. Our transport from A to B outstanding and the way Chelsea tailored our package to suit what we were looking for in our time frame, we couldn't have asked for better. Thank you so much, we will definitely book through you again.”

Keri Harris & Rangi Uangakore, Southern Highlights with Milford Sound, Travelled on 3rd January 2021

“Shelley rocks! Made me a ten day itinerary for a trip to South Island and especially the West Coast where I had never been. I got two trains included, as I love trains and my comfort and age was catered for. Loved being picked up at each stage and delivered to the accommodation, and took little sightseeing trips around the areas I landed at. Spectacular scenery and experiences. My only regret is that it was too short. Will hope to return, and cannot recommend your company too much. Thanks again for the wonderful service and care.”

Barbara Saies, 10 Day South Island Explorer, Travelled on 22nd November 2020

“Hi Christina. thank you for organising our coach holiday. It was brilliant. It was all so easy. Unfortunately, the traffic was really bad on the way to Paihia (the bus driver was excellent and took a shortcut to beat some of the traffic) so we were about an hour and a half late into Paihia but our shuttle driver was there to meet us. The Scenic Circle Hotel was great......only a short walk into town. We had beautiful weather. With all of the tours that you had pre-booked for us all we had to do was sit back and enjoy which is what we did. We will certainly recommend you and also the ease of travelling by coach. Bye for now.”
