  • Classic Escorted Group Touring (48 seat Classic)
  • Special Interest Group Touring 

We offer a selection of 30 itineraries to suit all budgets and interests with over 250 guaranteed departures per year.

Our coach holidays offer travellers peace of mind with everything being taken care of. Enjoy the camaraderie and make new friends with like-minded travellers as you explore the wonder that is New Zealand. 

2023/24 Season changes

In tandem with the launch of the 2023/24 touring season, we have made the decision to fine tune our portfolio of touring product.

Reacting to market demands and evident booking trends, GPT will transition to be recognised as a Specialist in Small and Mid-Size Group Touring. As a result, GPT will cease operating the Classic Group Touring & Classic Affordable Group Touring (48 seats) range of tours at the completion of the current 2022/23 season (refer below grid).

As a specialist in New Zealand touring, the future will be aimed at the growth of Ultimate Small Group Touring (20 seats), designed for the ‘Business Class’ style of traveller and Signature Mid-Size Group Touring (32 seats) offering a ‘Premium Economy’ touring experience.

The COVID-19 pandemic has heightened the popularity of both styles of travel, each offering a selection of fully inclusive itineraries ranging from 9 to 19 days, with multiple guaranteed departures. Additionally, GPT will consider new innovations for coach touring in New Zealand which has always been part of our market leading approach.
