19 Day Signature tour New Zealand   0 , QLD, Australia, Apr 2023
I travelled with my friend to NZ for this tour of both the North and South islands. It was a wonderful holiday and very well organised. The Tour Leader Jo Moore and Coach Captain Andrew Brown were exceptional. The inclusion of two day stays scattered through the tour was welcomed. I was getting a bit over the daily pack/unpack/wake-up calls and bags ...read more out. The accommodation was very good. All in all it was a fabulous holiday and I would thoroughly recommend Grand Pacific Tours.
Grand Pacific South Island New Zealand   0 , NSW, Australia, Apr 2023
Excellent trip. I am a solo traveller and in the past this meant being relegated to smaller and lesser rooms etc despite paying extra - not so here, accommodation was enjoyable and comfortable. I was also lucky as there were a great bunch of people on our trip. Great fun and beautiful scenery. We were kept suitably entertained on our journey by both ...read more Paul and Malcolm - who shared their knowledge and appreciation of the beautiful South Island. Highly recommended.

Absolutely amazing tour through the highlights of New Zealand. Tour guide and bus drivers were fabulous and organised everything really well. Tour participants were all lovely - overall a fabulous holiday and would definitely recommend to anyone!
Picturesque tour of the north part of the South Island     0 , VIC, Australia, Mar 2023
This was an excellent tour - well paced, encompassing great scenery and with three relaxing cruises to enjoy. Accommodation was very good, with helpful staff and comfortable rooms. There was an occasional glitch with new or untrained staff, but that is the way of it in Covid recovery times. The Ultimate coach was very good, although the seating needs ...read more to be re- thought to give room for leg rests to be used.

19 Day Classic Rail, Cruise and Coach of New Zealand   0 , VIC, Australia, Mar 2023
Large group of 48 - absolute amazing time, great food, great accomodation, great people.... Krissy tour leader was exceptional. Can't recommend her enough. Tour content was amazing - especially liked the 2 night stays in most places. Well done.
Touring New Zealand with Grand Pacific   0 , VIC, Australia, Mar 2023
Our tour with Grand Pacific, was a signature tour with an extremely comfortable bus, and a group of approximately 30. Although arriving a day early and leaving New Zealand a day after the tour ended we were provided with airport transfers which were prompt and efficient.

We toured both the south and the north island and were looked after very well ...read more by the tour guide and bus driver. We saw most of the highlights of New Zealand, a beautiful country with lots to see. The distances travelled on the South island were long, but the scenery beautiful and the hotels comfortable. North island was less arduous, and the scenery again beautiful but different to the South. The booking process with Hannah as usual was pleasant and efficient.
Enjoyable South Island tour     0 , VIC, Australia, Mar 2023
Having done this trip previously I kind of knew what to expect. This time around I took my wife for a belated honeymoon. While we both enjoyed the tour it was a bit difficult for my wife especially with the early morning wake ups which you had to expect when you are on an organised tour. She also found the options available for the breakfast and dinner ...read more buffet didn’t really cater for her too much but she is a fussy eater but I had no issues with the food.

We met lots of great people & the tour director and driver were really helpful and friendly and the views everywhere we went were amazing - a photographer’s dream!
Fantastic New Zealand   0 , WA , Australia, Mar 2023
The Grand Pacific Classic Showcase tour of New Zealand was absolutely fantastic. The tour was well organized and the optional activities well worth doing.

Georgie at Global Journeys managed the booking and kept us updated in difficult times due to Covid but I would certainly recommend them for any travel arrangements.
Grand Pacific, Ultimate Panorama   0 , New Zealand, Mar 2023
Grand pacific arranged a great trip for us and we would have no hesitation about travelling the Grand Pacific again. In our opinion, Early Autumn is the best time of year to do this trip. The accommodation was great and of a high standard. Our fellow travellers were a mix of great people from several countries around the world, which made a good mix ...read more of people who all got on well together.

19 Day Rail, Train and Coach Tour Around New Zealand   0 , SA, Australia, Feb 2023
Grand Pacific are a very well organised tour company and give a great overview of New Zealand.

Classic Rail, Cruise, Drive New Zealand     0 , VIC, Australia, Feb 2023
Grand Pacific Tours were fabulous to holiday with. I would travel with them again. Quality hotel accommodation was provided with breakfasts and most evening meals included. The inclusion list of train trips, museums and other places of interest was impressive for the price. Booking through Global Journeys was seamless.
Great NZ Tour   0 , WA, Australia, Feb 2023
Tour was great although it did get disrupted with Covid but from the start Hannah was great with all documentation needed and the Grand Pacific Tour was good value for money.
Sandboarding, Hobbiton and cruising through the Hole in the Rock     0 , SA, Australia, Feb 2023
The highlights for me were the sandboarding on an optional day trip to Ninety Mile beach, visiting Hobbiton in the rain, going on a luge down Mount Rotorua and cruising through the Hole in the Rock during a Bay of Islands tour. A major downside was flying in after 1am into Auckland and not being met at the airport to be transferred, as promised by ...read more the tour company, to SkyCity Hotel, which cost me about $100 for the taxi. I was re-imbursed for this a week later, though.

All the accommodation was fine including the fire drill at 7am in our Rotorua Hotel. The meals were all of a high standard. Due to the cyclones and floods that had occurred just before the tour began, we missed out on a number of sights and venues, however, Tour Director Barry, went out of his way to ensure we experienced the places that we could get to. I intend doing another NZ tour, but include both islands, in the next 2 years. Hannah, from Global Journeys, was efficient in setting up the tour and keeping me informed pre-departure, and I will continue using GJ for future tours.

Both Marg and I had a great New Zealand Holiday. A big thank you to Jemma at Global Journeys for all the assistance she provided to us.

Very satisfied Customer.     0 , VIC, Australia, Feb 2023
This was my first trip to NZ. The booking process went very well thanks to Hannah. I traveled with a friend. From the time we left Melbourne to our return the holiday was everything we expected and more. There were so many highlights ( too many to mention) but one I would recommend was the overnight cruise on Milford Sound. Also do take a couple of ...read more train journeys. I didn’t expect the two islands to be so different so was very pleased to have decided to explore both.

Accommodation was very good overall. We both felt very safe with both drivers but we were concerned there had been no change to the air conditioning circulation since Covid. A word about our Guide Krissy Higgan. She was wonderful. Nothing was too much trouble. Caring, fun, so easy to approach with any concerns etc. She certainly made the holiday very special.

Finally about the NZ people. They are a very friendly and relaxed group. Be prepared to wait in long queues for your coffee fix!! Which reminds me…… on the trip there were plenty of coffee/ toilet and sight seeing stops. We would both travel with Grand Pacific again. Would be very happy to deal with Hannah at Global Journeys again.
Great holiday   0 , NSW, Australia, Jan 2023
Roger was fantastic - great driver, very organised and very knowledgeable. Small groups of travellers - positive attitudes and lots of fun. Enjoyed visiting a wide variety of places - historical and cultural. Hotels were good, especially Regent Rotorua and Intercontinental Wellington.
NZ tour   0 , NSW, Australia, Jan 2023
Overall quality of travel with GPT was good. Breakfast and Dinner selection were good quality. Tour Guide and Drivers were supportive and knowledgeable. However few selections could have been better. Night stay at Omarama was ordinary as room did not have fan/aircon and it was bit hot at night. Our flight from Sydney to Christchurch was booked via Auckland ...read more where due to International to domestic transitioning carrying out quarantine and transfer was real hassle with such a short span of time.

The whole experience from booking with Tracey at Global Journeys to saying farewell to our Grand Pacific tour leader and fellow passengers on the trip has been wonderful.

Grand Pacific coach tour of New Zealand   0 , Co Wicklow, Ireland, Jan 2023
This trip was booked before Covid. My dream holiday to New Zealand lived up to my expectations in spite of the not so good weather on North Island. Georgie answered all my queries promptly and efficiently and I will have no hesitation of booking with Global Journeys again.
Spectacular Signature South Island of NZ with Grand Pacific     0 , VIC, Australia, Jan 2023
I can highly recommend the Signature South Island tour from Christchurch to Christchurch. January was a great time to travel - we had excellent weather. The very smart coach can accommodate 32 passengers. There were 27 in our group - mostly Australians with a few from the UK, an American couple and a lady from Canada. The company has an ingenious seat ...read more rotation policy which meant that you experienced different areas of the coach and had different people around you every day. All but one dinner was included and there were reduced price drinks before dinner so there were plenty of opportunities to mingle. Hotels were very good and a lot of activities were included in the price. I chose to do many of the optional activities, which I thoroughly enjoyed. The scenery was spectacular, the coach captain was a font of information about Māori history and the areas we passed through, as well as being an excellent driver, and the tour leader couldn’t do enough to make sure everyone was happy.
