Just finished 9 day North Island highlights tour, had a fabulous time, wished it would have been longer! Great driver and tour host Chris was extremely knowledgable, told great stories, made sure everyone was well-informed. All hotels were good, food fabulous, great mix of tours and free time.  Overall great experience, highly recommend, good value and definitely met some great new friends! - D.G

We returned from our New Zealand tour on Saturday and have nothing but praise for this fabulous trip. We have never done a coach tour before and this one dispelled any concerns about them, that we had. It was wonderful - from the drivers, to the hotels, to the food and service and the amazing places we visited. Everything was taken care of and we didn't have to worry about a thing - a real holiday, so we have been singing your praises to everyone. Thank you Grand Pacific, it was one of the best holidays of our life. - J.C

Brian and I agree with Kelly our trip was amazing, made even better because of Tony and Roger. They went out of their way to make sure every part of the trip was enjoyable and their knowledge of New Zealand was incredible (including where to get the best pies) - P.B

Thanks to everyone for making my parents experience a wonderful one, they met many new friends along the way, whom they are still in touch with - K.M

Have just finished 16 day highlights tour and it was great! Our drivers Peter & Megan were a wealth of knowledge about their respective islands & both were very friendly & helpful . I would recommend Grand Pacific tours to anyone - S.C

An amazing tour with a great guide, Ken Morrissey, 2 safe and professional drivers, the 2 Steves, all a wealth of information, and nothing is a problem to them. A wonderful itinerary, top quality Hotels, with great foods and service. Cant thank you guys enough, well done Ken , North Island Steve and South Island Steve - K & H.R. 

I was impressed with the whole organisation that went into making our holiday so special. I would recommend Grand Pacific Tours to anybody who was thinking of going to NZ for a holiday - O.D

My friend and I have returned from a 19 day tour with Grand Pacific Tours. Brilliant holiday. Well organised. Wonderful hotels. Thank you to Tony and Cole for making it special for each of us. Great company on the coach ( 2 English pome's with 40+ Ausies) oh great fun. Thank you to all.  - P.F

Holiday of a lifetime !. We recently did the 19 day NZ Showcase tour and everything was so well organised and we couldn't fault anything. Just a perfect holiday. Thanks Grand Pacific - S.P

Travelled on Grand Pacific "Taste of the South Island" Tour earlier this month, what a fantastic experience, all the accommodation and meals could not be faulted. The itinerary and sightseeing was superb and made more enjoyable by a great group of travel companions and coach captain. Would thoroughly recommend your company and hope to be back next year to see the North Island! – M.B

Great company. A exceptional team of fun, energetic, genuine and dedicated people across the board who live, breathe, eat and sleep everything New Zealand. No one knows the land better and no one can offer better opportunities to get the best out of your New Zealand holiday. I always recommend them to anyone wanting a New Zealand luxury coach holiday, be a first trip or return trip. – D.F

Fantastic 19 day trip to New Zealand North & South Island by Grand Pacific Tours. Thank you for a real amazing memorable holiday. Could not wish for any better holiday. – K.P
