Bargains galore for New Zealand coach toursIt's the season for outstanding Early Bird discounts on New Zealand coach tours. They just keep coming! So if you are contemplating coming to New Zealand for a New Zealand coach tour, now is the time to book! The deals and seats are still available.
We’ve just been updating the deals on the New Zealand coach tours on our website and really, they are amazing!
Kirra’s outstanding 20 day Ultimate New Zealand itinerary, was NZ$7020, now just NZ$5970 per person, share twin. That’s a massive saving of NZ$1050!
These Ultimate itineraries are extra special. They travel off the beaten track to wonderful places like Whangamata on the Coromandel Peninsula, Hot Water Beach where you can dig your own hot pool in the sand, the seriously impressive Tongariro National Park (staying at The Chateau Tongariro Hotel – nice!), the gorgeous Abel Tasman National Park, funky Hokitika and beautiful Lake Wanaka.
These are all outstanding, but check this out – the tour overnights on the Milford Mariner and this is undoubtedly a trip highlight. The Milford Mariner nestles into a sheltered cove to anchor up for the night. The on-board dining is amazing (including NZ roast lamb for mains and pavlova for dessert!) but what is really special is the opportunity to paddle around this very remote bay in a kayak. You’ll love it.
Also very unique to these tours is the opportunity to hike the Hollyford Track Walkway. This guided hike is entirely optional and substitutes 2 nights in Queenstown. So you choose whether to have 3 nights in Queenstown, or 1 night Queenstown and 2 nights on the Hollyford. Spaces on these guided hikes are very limited so early bookings are highly recommended. Reasonable fitness is required as this is really and truly a remote hike into one of New Zealand’s most impressive scenic regions.
If your time frame doesn’t allow for 20 days, there is also a 13 day Ultimate Southern Highlights which is South Island only. The price is discounted by NZ$695, making the early bird price just NZ$3947 per person, share twin, including sightseeing, all breakfasts, most dinners.

All the arrangements for accommodation and travel worked without a hitch. The only confusion we had was finding the Thrifty reception at Picton, as we initially went to the wrong ferry terminal!
We were kindly redirected by a receptionist to the correct terminal and all fell into place.
There were numerous highlights, but for June and I, the Helicopter flight and landing on the glacier was a unique and memorable event.
Driving between destinations was also a pleasure as the traffic density in general is far less than in the UK, the uniqueness of the roads and the scenery made it enjoyable to drive. June (who is far better disciplined than I), created a log of the places visited and experiences encountered.
This, along with the photographs taken will provide material to deliver a presentation of our tour to fellow Rotary members here at Helensburgh.
From June and I, a big THANK YOU for creating a very interesting and memorable itinerary that gave insight to some of the outstanding landscape and history of New Zealand.
