The Luxury is in the Detail

12 February 20

Grand Pacific Tours offer innovative Ultimate Small Group Coach Holiday experiences, allowing VIP traveller’s unparalleled comfort on their New Zealand holiday.

The beauty of travelling aboard the Ultimate coach is that it’s in a league of it’s own and not offered by any other operator.

Small group travel allows for a more intimate and personalised experience with opportunities for authentic experiences you would be unable to do on your own. Spend less time checking into hotels and more time exploring the sights!

We listen to our traveller's feedback post tour and review our itineraries and inclusions to continually improve the experience at all-inclusive prices all the while remaining conscious of the challenges our travellers may face when booking a holiday.

See what some of our travellers have to say about our Ultimate Small Group Tours:

The value and scope of the tour is extraordinary, every attention is given to pax comfort and preference. The single seat configuration was the initial attraction for me. It is spacious and very comfortable, allows for privacy/quiet. I would certainly highly recommend Ultimate. Excellent and comfortable hotels. I preferred the smaller ones – more character and charm. M.M. (VIC)

Did not know about “Ultimate” coach features until after booking – saw it via the online video!! Carry on bag a great surprise – including the unique storage design at the seat. Used the USB charging facility to advantage. K.Z. (SA)

All of the (tour) was absolutely perfect. This coach is the best and most luxurious I have ever been involved with. The looks, seating and layout – congratulations to all involved. “This is a mighty Scania” W.W. (TAS)

Pristine condition. Comfort – outstanding. Didn’t matter where we were sitting – completely unimpeded views. Seat rotation worked well. J&J.P. (VIC)

My husband and I have travelled twice before with Grand Pacific on 19 Day trips but this was our first time on Ultimate coach and we fully appreciated all the points of difference.

I have been on a number of tours – London to Rome, back road tours of Scotland and Ireland and this tops them all – the seat roster is brilliant! I.N. (QLD)

Very pleased with the experience as I had not been to NZ before and I found this G.P. tour was a relaxing way to do it - appropriately spaced comfort stops. Loved the fact that in most places – tables, seats etc were reserved for G.P. tour group. G.U. (UK)

We were attracted to the small group tour, the itinerary and the included attractions – plus a little bit of luxury!!! D.M. & C.A. (SA)
