What is an independent coach tour?

An independent coach tour makes use of the national coach network whilst still providing door-to-door service. They allow you to take in the views without having to worry about driving. We build the itineraries around your wishes, allowing you to spend as much or as little time in the locations you want to visit. Independent coach tours fit around your flights and any other commitments you might have while you are in New Zealand.

A major point of difference between these and escorted coach tours is that you do not travel with the same group of individuals for the duration of your tour, nor do you have a tour leader who stays with you.
