Must Do Experiences and Highlights
Cruise Lake Wakatipu
Blessed with stunning scenery, there is no better way to enjoy Queenstown’s beauty than to cruise Lake Wakatipu on the vintage steamship, TSS Earnshaw.

This iconic train journey crosses the Canterbury Plains and majestic snow-capped Southern Alps, with breathtaking gorges, high viaducts, twisting rivers and forests at every turn.

Belching grey mud pools, geysers shooting to the sky, lakes bubbling like champagne, and natural hot springs. Walk among these amazing natural wonders in Rotorua.
Be enthralled by the thundering power of the Haka, the carved meeting houses, greenstone adornments, flax weaving and the smokey flavours of a traditional hangi.
The Sounds of Fiordland
The iconic Milford Sound features on most South Island itineraries but have you also thought about the lesser known Doubtful Sound? Equally beautiful, see them both!

What our clients are saying about their journeys to New Zealand
The timing of the trip was unwittingly good bearing in mind the pandemic. Basically the last night dinner was underway when we were told that all subsequent trips had been cancelled. The travel guide and driver were extremely good. The accommodation apart from the Copthorne in Queenstown were very good. The group was a good mix of nationalities and gelled together well. The Itinerary was excellent. The one annoying factor with AAT Kings was that they had a second coach virtually shadowing us which ...read more had never been explained either before or after booking. This was particularly galling given the most intermediate stops were in small towns with limited services. Why is it that AAT Kings give details of the situation of each trip and date but never says it will runs two coaches simultaneously if necessary. (GJ. Thanks for the feedback David. That would be because they may not know until close to departure - it's rare but does happen occasionally due to the size of NZ and it's popularity. Great you managed to get home before the borders were shut! All the best.)
“Highlights of the South Island of New Zealand”
An enjoyable tour that showed us the highlights of the South Island. The coach held 48 people and it was full on our tour but that caused no delays. We were with a lovely group of people from England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Canada and Australia. The tour moved at a consistent pace and we especially enjoyed the two night stopovers as that gave us a little bit of extra recovery time. The planned excursions were all enjoyable and we had many other options to try other things such as helicopter flights, ...read more when time and weather allowed. This was our first coach tour and we found that 10 days was long enough. Overall this was an enjoyable experience and we will consider other coach trips in future.
“Wonderful South Island Tour”
Kirra Tours' 10 day Southern Encounter tour of South Island New Zealand was a wonderful, worry free small group coach tour. The whole package was great. We had a very knowledgable, courteous coach driver/tour guide & the pace of the tour was just right. The tours that were included & the optional tours were the best available in each area. Accommodation was at the best available hotels (4 to 4.5 stars) in each town/city, within a short walking distance of the town centre. The daily breakfast buffets ...read more & the dinners that were included were of high standard, showcasing the fresh New Zealand produce. Our fellow travellers from USA, Australia & New Zealand were great company.
“Excellent New Zealand tour”
Thoroughly enjoyed this well organised, extremely comfortable and interesting tour. Group size was perfect and the Ultimate coach made travelling a breeze. Of the optional tours, we particularly enjoyed Skippers Canyon, but everything we did and saw was enjoyable.
