Wonderful. The quality of everything we participated in was of a high standard. Excellent meals with a very high standard of service, presentation, variety and very generous servings. Great coach always presented impeccably. Visibility was great and seats comfortable. We have absolutely no complaints at all.

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.

I could not dream of such an amazing holiday and worth every cent. Found every hotel was comfortable, and all food was fantastic. Attractions have been great and the coach so comfortable, caters for all needs, and spotlessly clean every day.

We thoroughly enjoyed the small group experience which incorporated train journeys and boat cruises with the highlight being the overnight trip to Doubtful Sound. We travelled in comfort for the entire journey. Our Coach Captain was an exceptional driver/guide and we all benefited from his wealth of knowledge and expertise. The overall standard and choice of food options was varied and of good quality.

The tour was very good and met our expectations.

The Ultimate coach was of a very high standard, comfortable, and cleaned and sanitized daily – excellent. We loved our Coach Captain, she was an amazing person, passionate and enthusiastic about New Zealand and her role as tour guide/driver. A great ambassador for Grand Pacific Tours.

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.
