There are a few different ways to do a guided tour of New Zealand, and a lot of it depends on your budget. One option is to have your own private driver/guide to show you around New Zealand, giving you the same freedom as a self-drive tour. Another is to hop aboard a luxury coach, meet fellow like-minded travelers and have access to an onboard local guide that will take care of you along the way.
Both options provide an exceptional experience and comes down to your own personal preference and budget. One thing we know for sure is that having access to a local who is passionate about New Zealand and knows all the ins and outs is well worth while. There’s just some questions Google can’t answer, and your guide will be there to explain whatever your question may be.
Even though advisors at Travel New Zealand are with you every step of the way through your New Zealand Vacation, having a friendly guide right there with you will set your mind further at ease. Our guides take pride in outstanding customer service and will go the extra mile to make your trip like no other.
With a privately guided tour, you have full reign on where you want to go and what you want to do each day. Just like a self-drive tour, only you can just sit back and enjoy the views. You will also have a knowledgeable local Driver/Guide to teach you not only New Zealand’s Culture/History, but recommend the best places to eat each evening, which hikes to take or whether or not to buy those “genuine” souvenirs. You will be traveling in style with a luxury vehicle, with all the latest safety features and comforts.
Guided coach tours are very popular in New Zealand, and generally cater to those who want to interact with others along the way. While Travel New Zealand doesn’t have the ability to change the itineraries of Guided Coach Tours, we can find the perfect trip among thousands that are on offer. Each one is different and offers unique experiences, so it’s important to jump onboard one that is best for you. We have relationships with New Zealand’s Top Coach companies, each providing luxurious buses to make your journey as relaxing as possible.
