Special Interest Tours are innovative holidays that cater to a traveller’s specific interest and budget. Grand Pacific Tours believe that your personal interests can be part of your New Zealand Coach Holiday journey. Whether you are travelling solo; enjoy the thrill of aviation; a keen gardener; looking for a festive getaway; want a tour that complements an existing passion or inspires a new one, we’ve got it covered!
SOLO Travellers Tours
No travel partner? No worries. Experience the best of New Zealand on a coach tour designed for those who travel solo, but want the convenience, company and value of travelling in a group.
