Choose the Perfect New Zealand Coach Tour with our Helpful Guide

There’s so many tours, you think, scrolling through our diverse range of potential getaways and special interest coach tours – it’s difficult to say no to wine, cheese and delicious food – where should you start? Who should you travel with? What are you really looking for? These are some great and very common questions. Let’s explore the answers together below.

The Big Stuff

Is Variety the Spice You’re Searching For?

Visiting all the sights and sounds

Some New Zealand coach tours begin aboard a train, chugging your way across the country side, before transferring to a comfortable bus experience… others combine charter flights, train trips and coach tours, trying to get everything in, from every perspective possible. Although not every company offers such a diversity of transportation, sticking purely with coach travel, we believe options make our holidays that extra something special. Imagine book-ending your holiday with a scenic flight at the beginning and a luxury yacht a day before you fly out… make your vacation work for your travel style.

Small Groups Are a Must

People. They’re everywhere, no matter where you go in the world – even Antarctica hosts a roaring tourist trade in winter! But don’t let fear or preferences for quiet time stop you from indulging your time on a coach tour. Luxury coach companies, including Kirra Tours, focus on keeping groups small, ensuring every person receives personal, friendly and five-star service. You come first. Your comfort, your needs, your relaxation and your enjoyment, each holiday with us is a journey into relaxation, as we take care of the details for you – without too many people chatting away around you!

Are You a Particular Person?

New Zealand’s Best

There’s no greater pleasure in life than the taste of a full bodied red and the nutty textures of a local New Zealand cheese… if you agree, and finer things are the only things you’re thinking about when it comes to holidays, a carefully designed taste tour is for you. Special interest coach tours are beginning to take New Zealand by storm, attracting swathes of foodies by land, air and sea – luckily, Kirra Tours carries a certain amount of exclusivity in New Zealand’s must-taste places. No driving. No worries. Just eat, drink and be merry, knowing you’ll have somewhere comfortable to stay and an easy lift back to the hotel.

The Nitty Gritty

How Long Can You Travel For?

Not everybody can afford a 20 day getaway – short on time, short on money, maybe you’re already booked out and you just need a break from it all for six days. We can help. Our tours run the gamut of 6,7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 13 and all the way to 20 days across a range of travel options, including 100% coach, 70% coach and 50% coach travel.

Who Would You Like to Travel With?

There’s nothing wrong with striking out and seeing New Zealand as a solo traveller. You don’t need a partner, a friend, a family member or the lady from the Post Office to come with you – companies like Kirra Tours take care of everyone equally, meaning you’ll get the attention you deserve while meeting new, travel-minded people.

Which Island? Where should you go? North? South? Both? Should you come back?

There’s no right answer – except we will go ahead and say, yes, you should definitely return to New Zealand again and again. The North Island boasts beautiful bays, vineyards and the thermal wonder that is Rotorua, while the South Island continues to inspire awe at every turn, packing a punch with the startling Milford Sound and the glorious Alps.
