It was my first experience on a solo tour, I’ve had a fabulous time meeting new people and enjoying the trip. All included activities were great, I couldn’t fault the accommodation or meals. The coach was very comfortable, I loved the single seats. The coach captain was extremely helpful and very entertaining. He gave us a great insight into the areas we visited.

For me this is a once in a lifetime tour and Grand pacific has done it in style. My whole concept of NZ has changed as I marvel at the friendliness of the people, the beauty of the landscape and the wonderful activities on offer. We have sailed halfway around the country, travelled on a luxury coach from North to South and ridden the train from South to North. Have covered most options and totally satisfied. Thanks GPT!

The value and scope of the tour is extraordinary, every attention is given to passenger 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.

Man that’s business class touring!!! Always clean and fresh – was just expecting a blinged up Hi Ace Bus!

World Class driver/tour director, world class coach and world class country. You cannot loose! I really enjoyed this tour. Oohh! World class tour company also. I was impressed by Head Office ability to quickly arrange alternate accommodation after flooding of the West Coast. It was very evident Head Office staff support their fellow staff out in the field.
