Like Business Class on Wheels
on 7 Sep 2017
Experience the ultimate tour combining rail, coach and a magical Doubtful Sound overnight cruise. Like travelling in Business Class on wheels, enjoy transport in a small group tour coach with just 20 luxurious leather reclining seats on a full-size vehicle with two door access and panoramic windows.
This all-encompassing 19-day tour with Grand Pacific Tours ensures you see and experience the very best of New Zealand in style and comfort by land and sea. Including flights from Australia, enjoy three rail journeys across this picturesque country, five short and scenic cruises and 17 nights’ accommodation in 4½ star hotels.
After an overnight in Auckland, board your luxury coach and head north to the beautiful Bay of Islands, travelling aboard a catamaran to Cape Brett and the famous Hole in the Rock. Explore the Mars-like landscapes of Rotorua as you witness boiling mud pools and spouting geysers. Enjoy free time in pretty Lake Taupo and see Wellington’s highlights before taking the ferry to Christchurch. After 2 nights and extensive sightseeing in Christchurch, pass through spectacular gorges and river valleys as you ascend to Arthur’s Pass in the centre of the Southern Alps.
Experience an optional scenic flight over Fox Glacier then admire the stunning beauty of this picturesque alpine region as you head in the quaint resort town, Queenstown. With plenty of free time in Queenstown to take part in a host of activities, you’ll be ready to relax as you explore the pristine beauty of Doubtful Sound on an overnight cruise. Visit the glow worm caves in Te Anu and discover the historic charm of Dunedin before your adventure concludes in Christchurch, with time to relax before your flight back to Australia.
