What is an independent coach tour? Imagine your own New Zealand tour including: the best locations; exactly the things you want to see and do; and the style of accommodation you like. And then imagine relaxing and taking in the views along the way with notable sights pointed out and explained. It's like a bespoke self-drive holiday without the driving.
An independent coach tour fits in with you and your plans. Where you would need to arrange your plans around an organised tour itinerary, our customised coach tours are unique to you. They fit around your flights and any other commitments you might have while you are in New Zealand.
It couldn't be easier to create your perfect New Zealand coach touring experience.
Our vastly experienced team know your coach travel options every step along your dream route. And they know options you probably won't have dreamed of or found in your own research.
They'll talk to you about your plans and interests. Then they'll create a coach travel and holiday itinerary that is perfect for your needs.
You will 'go your own way' with Thrifty Tours using a combination of coach providers — such as Great Sights, Newmans and Real Journeys — to create your itinerary. Travelling in comfortable modern coaches, you'll enjoy commentary and sightseeing stops en route.
Our independent coach tours include all the arrangements you need; all transfers and pick ups and drop offs, accommodation and activities are prearranged.
So you don't have to worry about getting where you need to be when you need to be there. All you have to do is sit back, enjoy the view and the fabulous locations we take you to.
