With a small group of 20, you will explore all that New Zealand has to offer, travelling between the highlights on your small luxury coach in incredibly comfortable ‘business class’ seats.

Your tour begins on the South Island where you will explore its peaks and take to the seas to drink in the incredible Milford Sound. With time in Queenstown, Christchurch and Dunedin, you will get to find out what makes the South Island tick and join in with the rhythms of its people. You will discover the drama of Fox Glacier, Mt Cook and discover Arthur’s Pass onboard the TranzAlpine Express, one of the world’s greatest rail journeys.
As you head to the North Island the scenery and focus switches. Time spent in Auckland and Wellington will allow you to find your way around these beautiful, modern cities, but the real beauty in the North Island lies in nature. You will explore the bubbling mud and powerful geysers of Rotorua before heading to the glorious Bay of Islands where you will cruise in search of the perfect beach, travelling through different idyllic coves, pausing to swim with the stunning array of marine life.
