Travelling Solo doesn’t have to mean travelling alone. Share authentic travel experiences with like-minded travellers from all over the world. Explore the must-see icons and unexpected treasures on a dedicated Solo Travellers coach tour of New Zealand. 

With your flights, taxes, modern coach travel, guaranteed single room accommodation, most meals, sightseeing and attractions included, you can make the most of your independent holiday.

New Zealand is a unique destination with wild sweeping landscapes, mountainous backdrops and fiords; contrasted by sandy beaches, boutique shopping districts and an abundance of culture and history. The diversity and proximity of New Zealand make it a perfect holiday destination.

Begin the 16 Day Solo Travellers Highlights Tour in Christchurch before exploring the scenic South Island. Cruise through the breathtaking fiords and dramatic mountain peaks of Milford Sound, see NZ’s highest peak Mt Cook and the snow-capped peaks of the mighty Southern Alps; and board the world-renowned TranzAlpine Rail Journey from Arthur’s Pass through the scenic patchwork farmlands of the Canterbury plains.

On the North Island, explore Te Papa, New Zealand’s National Museum in Wellington, with exhibits embracing Maori and European culture. Then travel North to Rotorua and immerse yourself in the Maori culture by enjoying a Traditional Maori Hangi and Concert.

Cruise on a luxury catamaran past dolphins and white sandy beaches on a tour in the Bay of Islands before arriving into cosmopolitan Auckland and enjoying a special dinner with your newfound friends and toast to your memorable experiences. 

Relax in armchair comfort as you travel through each region, feeling secure in the hands of a professional Coach Captain & Tour Guide whose reliable knowledge includes numerous facts and figures, stories, legends and many laughs along the way. 

Travel is on a comfortable, modern coach with 48 seats, featuring panoramic windows, reclining seats, two door access and an onboard restroom.

For travellers wishing to upgrade, the stylish 11 Day Ultimate Solo Travellers Tour offers all the must-see highlights of the South Island on a luxury New Year Escape. 

The Ultimate Small Group Experience means you will travel ‘business class on wheels’ on the deluxe Ultimate Coach. Travel with a maximum of 20 travellers on a purpose-built, full size vehicle with 20 luxury leather recliner seats, complete with adjustable headrest and calf support for added comfort; enjoy a window seat every time.

Those who travel on a Grand Pacific Tours Solo Tour receive access to a dedicated Facebook group so that travellers can connect with their fellow travellers before and after their tour; an introductory welcome drink and dinner on the first night of their tour; reserved seating at restaurants so you never have to dine alone; as well as daily seat rotation on the coach, meaning travellers will get to know everyone on their tour.

As one traveller commented, “Being a widow, I wanted to meet and share experiences with like-minded people who are passionate about living life to the fullest. I thoroughly enjoyed every day and experiences. Everlasting memories. Trip of a lifetime. Learnt so much of New Zealand’s history and culture. Packed in a lot, which I would not have known about or done on my own. Extremely good value.”

New Zealand is a truly unique place with captivating landscapes and sensational culture; make lifelong friends and share unforgettable memories on a Solo Travellers Coach Holiday with Grand Pacific Tours.
