Escorted holidays: a great alternative to New Zealand self-drives
From the cosmopolitan city of Auckland in the North Island, to Christchurch – the gateway to the South Island and beyond; our collection of escorted touring holidays in New Zealand cover a variety of regions, interests, durations and budgets to suit all. Here’s why we think escorted holidays make a great alternative when planning an ultimate New Zealand escape.
Freedom to enjoy your surrounds
Escorted holidays are ideal for those who want to experience the key sites that surround, without having to do any of the driving. With a diverse selection of itineraries, showcasing the finest sights in your chosen destinations; join like-minded travellers and knowledgeable guides as you traverse the very best of New Zealand.
Variety is key
From affordable exploration to ultra-luxury travel, we offer a host of escorted holiday itineraries which include hiking, cruise and coach travel. You also have a variety of choice when it comes to accommodation – from deluxe hotels to comfortable camping. So, whether you wish to visit one island, or the best of both – explore the wonders of New Zealand with new-found friends.
Planning is half the fun
Group holidays are not defined by the type of traveller you are, but the quality of the experience you require. So, with that in mind – you could start the planning process by thinking about whether you want to ‘see it all’ or perhaps focus on a particular theme such as natural history, adventure or culture. Our coach tours offer ultimate touring experiences, featuring hand-picked hotels, sightseeing tours and a vareity of dining experiences, whilst our more affordable options include a balance of must-see sites and off-the-beaten-track experiences.
Whilst the initial holiday price of an escorted holiday will often be higher than a self-drive, most meals and excursions are already included, making it much easier to budget your holiday spending money.
We have a team of accredited Tourism New Zealand ‘Kiwi Specialists’ who share a great passion for this enchanting country. With extensive knowledge and first-hand experience on ‘the land of the long white cloud‘, we will help you find the ideal escorted holiday itinerary as well as arranging your flights, stopovers and any other elements of your holiday either side of the group travel that you wish.
