New Zealand Escorted Holidays

Our collection of escorted holidays in New Zealand is diverse and enticing, ranging from unbeatable budget trips to premier first-class travel. Provided by operators with a reputation for quality and personal service, well-constructed itineraries ensure visitors get the very best experience possible.

Freedom to enjoy your surrounds

Escorted holidays are ideal for those who want to experience key sites without having to do any of the driving. Our itineraries showcase the finest sights, so whether you wish to visit one island or enjoy the best of both, explore the wonders of New Zealand with new-found friends and knowledgeable guides.

Variety is key

From affordable exploration to ultra-luxury travel, we offer a host of escorted holidays 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.

Choosing the right tour for you

Start 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 variety of dining experiences, while 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 included, making it much easier to budget your holiday spending money.
