We have really enjoyed our great experience travelling around the North Island of New Zealand with Grand Pacific Tours. We got to experience the North Island travelling in comfort. The coach was always clean, the seating excellent, great leg space and great views from the large windows. Delicious meals with a wonderful variety to choose from, well cooked and well presented.

For a first visit to the South Island, I have seen and done a lot more of the island than if I had organised excursions individually. The best way of touring and taking in all activities was with your company. The Tour Leader and Coach Captain are of the highest quality, knowledgeable, informative, great company and have helped make my holiday such an amazing experience.

We have ticked off so many things on our bucket list and each day said 'how can this get any better?' But each day surpasses the previous for experiences, scenery, and fun! What could top jumping in the waters of Doubtful Sound? Seeing snow fall as we left Te Anau.

This really was the Ultimate Tour of New Zealand, and we are so very blessed to have shared the journey with 18 new friends and our fabulous Coach Captain - host, porter, encyclopedia, comedian, and wonderful companion at dinners.

The total experience was first class. We were so glad we chose Grand Pacific Tours to see the South Island. So many places were on our bucket list and Grand Pacific Tours made sure we were not disappointed. The mix of experiences was just right, and the length of the tour was about right too. We rate this as one of our best ever travel experiences.

This delightful tour was a feast for the eyes - gorgeous everywhere we looked – and the stomach – lots of yummy food, “wine time”, and bus stops for coffee – just perfect.

The airshow and organization was excellent and the Gold pass was brilliant! The Ultimate coach was fantastic. We have been spoilt for any future coach travel unless it’s on one of these Ultimate coaches. Always clean and so comfortable.

The overall tour was exceptional. We felt very spoilt and really appreciated the VIP treatment in every element of the tour.
