Discover Independent Coach Touring

Flexible, laidback, bespoke…an Independent Coaching Tour is the ideal way to blend the ease and stability of an escorted tour with the independence of a self-drive.

You’ll still be travelling on coaches with a knowledgeable guide, but where you go and when you go to each destination is up to you. Our passionate team will work with you to create a tailor-made itinerary, picking out the places you want to go, the things you want to do, the hotels you fancy staying at and turning all your ideas and dreams into one personalised holiday.

Instead of staying with one escorted tour group, sticking to the readily chosen accommodation and food haunts, you’ll be able to join a new coach every day, meeting new friends and tailoring your route to your own needs and pace. Is there a hotel you fancy visiting? An excursion you don’t want to miss? Our experts will ensure your journey includes everything on your New Zealand bucket list. Escorted tours typically have set departure dates, but Independent Coach Touring adds just that extra bit of flexibility with its daily departures.

Better yet, you won’t have the stress of driving or trying to tackle a map either, instead you can travel on a comfy, air-conditioned coach and listen as experienced tour guides enthral you with anecdotes and facts about your journey.

Five Reasons to Go Independent Coach Touring with New Zealand Sky

  • Our knowledgeable team are on hand to create a bespoke tour, giving you plenty of flexibility but also making sure all accommodation and timings are sorted for you.
  • No tricky map reading or trying to work out the roads, instead you can relax on a comfortable coach, fit with air-conditioning and a friendly tour guide.
  • Daily departure dates mean you can go on your adventure whenever you please.
  • Choose your own accommodation with our team – they’ll know the best places for whichever kind of holiday you’re looking for, whether you fancy relaxing on the beach, or immersing yourself in new cultures.
  • Our escorted tours are fantastic, but if you’re not wanting a completely controlled itinerary and want to make your own rules, Independent Coach Touring is the way to go.

We had a really fantastic holiday. The whole package was extremely well planned and it would be very hard to improve it! This holiday was one of the best we ever had. - William Culley
