Cruise & Coach Tours

Kia Ora,

Thank you for your interest in Grand Pacific Tours Cruise & Coach Tours.

Grand Pacific Tours Cruise Coach programme for the 2020/21 season was launched in November 2019 following several very successful touring seasons, partnering with Celebrity Cruises.

Based on the current travel climate, affected by the Coronavirus (COVID-19), management have made the decision to no longer run any Cruise Coach tours in the 20/21 season.

The four tours that will be cancelled are:

23 Day Best of New Zealand Coach and Cruise                  –            November 13, 2020
21 Day Ultimate Cruise & North Island Experience              –            January 15, 2021
21 Day Ultimate South Island Experience & Cruise             –            January 17, 2021
20 Day New Zealand Vista By Cruise & Coach                   –            February 12 , 2021

Grand Pacific Tours have injected substantial advertising and marketing funds to promote the Cruise Coach tours since the product was launched, but at this stage achieving minimal numbers to make running the tours viable and successful, is not possible.

Grand Pacific Tours take great pride in promoting ‘’Guaranteed Departures’’, so this decision has not been taken lightly, but is strictly due to market conditions beyond our control.

All Grand Pacific Tours traditional coach tour departures scheduled for the 2020-2021 season remain open for sale and are actively selling, and we look forward to welcoming all travellers to New Zealand.

Thank you for your understanding.

Kind regards

Peter Harding
Managing Director
