I joined Grand Pacific Tours (GPT) on a travel agents’ famil tour of the upper North Island and from start to finish we were treated with the same VIP treatment that our clients get to enjoy on the tours. Our group were a mix of Australian, New Zealand and U.K travel agents, some first timers to New Zealand and some like me wanting to experience the coach touring life.
From the welcome dinner to the farewell on the last night our “Coach Captain” Megan (driver/guide and general knowledge guru) and the team from GPT were on hand to make travel comfortable and hassle free.
We travelled by comfortable, modern 48 seater coach, the same one used on the “Affordable” and “Signature” tours, with ample legroom and reclining seats. We also viewed the “Ultimate” coach to check out the next level in luxury travel – this full size coach is modified to sit just 20 people in business-class comfort.
