Great tour, everything was arranged seamlessly and the hotels were absolutely great! Shoutout to Shelley, thanks for being very helpful and responsive regarding changes on itinerary!

Douwe Visser, AAT Kings 9 Day Southern Spotlight, Travelled on 24 October 2021

We had a wonderful holiday. Everything was perfect. The hotels and the dinners, the breakfasts, and the entertainment were very good, Also, the tour guide "Hope" was an excellent organiser and entertainer. Our driver Di was a perfect chauffeur and a good storyteller. All in all, the trip was very enjoyable and highly recommended.

Pradeep and Sucheta Joshee, Southern Highlights with Milford Sound, Travelled on 19 June 2021

We returned home safe and sound on Saturday just before the polar blast hit the south island!! May I say, it was one of the best holidays we have been on and for that, we cannot thank you enough...every motel, bus service and timetable was perfectly organised...we also had ample time of our own to visit some places. Thank you once again for a perfectly organised trip. The weather also had been extremely glorious and we could visit the highlights like Milford Sound and Franz Josef without any hassle. The TranzAlpine train journey was wonderful, though it was raining until Arthur's pass, we still enjoyed it very much. I am going to highly recommend your five-star service to all my friends and also avail of the same myself again. We would like to specifically mention two lady drivers of the Intercity buses: Debbie, from Lake Tekapo to Queenstown, and Jill, of Real Journeys, who drove us from Queenstown to Milford Sound and back! Both ladies were absolutely wonderful in sharing the information and history of the places we were traveling through. We would also like to mention the excellent service of Emma at Bella Vista Motel, Christchurch and Lily of Punga Grove, Franz Josef. My husband and I have come back totally refreshed after a long time and this trip was just what we needed. Thank you once again and God bless !!

Jenny & Desmond Borello, A Custom Bay of Islands and Cape Reinga 4 day Experience, Travelled on 7 June 2021

We recently booked through Christina Brockie for a trip to the Bay of Islands. She was well organised with the planning. We really enjoyed all the trips she planned for us. Loved the hotel. I would certainly recommend her to others wanting an organised tour.

Michael and Lisa Dawson, 15 Day New Zealand Spotlight Experience, Travelled on 1 May 2021

Shelley was professional and very helpful with organising our fantastic family holiday to North and South Island New Zealand. Everything ran smoothly and she was a delight to deal with. We will book again with Shelly when we return. Highly recommended.

Shelagh Coop & Gwen Sadler, Customised Bottom of the South Tour, Travelled on 12 May 2021

I wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed the tour with my friend. All accommodation was very clean and comfortable. Both of our tour guides, Mina and Kim were very enthusiastic about the region and treated us very well. So, total satisfaction!

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

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

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

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

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

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.

Jenny & Neville Bowmar, Kathy & Tom Sintmaartensdyk, A Customised Bay of Islands and Cape Reinga Deluxe 4 day tour, Travelled on 23rd October 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.

Alison Weggery & Joyce Loye, 4 day TranzAlpine Glaciers and Queenstown, Travelled on 12th October 2020

Very happy with the booking with NZ coach tours.

Annette Moody, A Custom New Zealand Explorer, Travelled on 2 October 2020

Throughout the consulting phases, you were extremely helpful, giving advice on the best places to visit. Your selection of hotels and motels was good, all rooms were comfortable and spacious. The drivers who met me were all very courteous and friendly, some gave me a wee tour before taking me to my hotel. I was grateful to be met and receive Porter service. Travelling alone is interesting and this service made it feel safer. I suggest you always include the company picking us up, please. Later starts would be good, it's not a holiday, more of a tour. Re the bird sanctuary off Stewart Island, a boxed breakfast would be a must, there are no facilities there and I found 3 hours too long, so managed a ride back to Golden Bay. Otherwise, it was really great. Expensive, but as I won't it do again, worth it. I have a new appreciation for our beautiful scenic country. Thank you.

Alan & Sheila Joynes, Southern Spectacular, Travelled on 22nd September 2020

After numerous changes due to COVID 19 we had a fantastic holiday. Thanks Louise for all the work you did rebooking as things got cancelled. 10 out of 10.

Alan & Rayleen Price, 8 day South Island Scenic Explorer, Travelled on 12th September 2020

We have now returned home from our holiday! It was wonderful, I must congratulate you on the holiday package you put together for us, you did exceptionally well. Thank You 🙏🙏🙂. All the private transfer people were exceptional and the accommodation was great 👍. It was a bit of a shame about Milford sounds and the Greymouth train trip but that’s the weather and COVID 19. Once again Thank you very much!

Maria Tamepo, 2 day West Coast Explorer to Queenstown, Travelled on 15th September 2020

Well, an absolutely wonderful time had by all four of us in our travel party. The opportunity to have our own private shuttle and driver was a huge bonus. Richard was a top man who catered to our needs and wants, gave suggestions about the different sites we may like to see. Absolutely fabulous and that's without mentioning the spectacular views and the awesome country of Waipounamu. I am definitely recommending this tour to my friends and family and wish to use this opportunity to thank you, Shelley, from New Zealand Coach Tours and Richard from Glacier Shuttles.

Awesome time away.

Sheila and Satish Rao, TranzAlpine Glaciers and Queenstown, Travelled on 16th March 2020

We enjoyed every minute of our TranzAlpine and Queenstown your. Jo did an outstanding job of organizing our itinerary and everything went smoothly.

Edgar Frank Walter & Maria Jandira de Camargo Mancuso, Contrasts of New Zealand, Travelled on 10th March 2020

We loved New Zealand and the tour was well prepared and everything worked fine. We had, however, some communication problems during the tour. But on the last days of the tour, Christina took over our trip and gave us excellent support.
