See New Zealand’s fiords and unearth Hobbiton or ride the surf at Bondi Beach and toast to a sunset at Uluru on a tour with our partner, AAT Kings.

In Australia and New Zealand, we’ve partnered with AAT Kings to offer the best selection of escorted and independent tours. and can book any of their escorted and independent tours. 

AAT Kings pride themselves on their passion and run coach tours with experienced crew and local guides. Each tour is led by an experienced Tour Director or Driver Guide and travellers can choose from two main options: traditional Guided Holidays coach tours and Inspiring Journeys smaller group tours that are tailored for a more enriched experience.

Guided Holidays are a great way to experience each destination’s culture and natural beauty with stays in great-value hotels. AAT Kings have two types of Guided Holidays: First Choice which include four-star stays, hand-picked dining highlights and a selection of included optional excursions; and Best Buys – these tours tick off the major sites while giving you the freedom to dine out wherever you like most of the time. We recommend Inspiring Journeys, which are smaller group tours with a perfect blend of boutique-style hotels, gourmet food and hand-picked culturally rich activities.

AAT Kings also have Short Breaks – these are independent tours which include your hotel and day trip-style sightseeing that are fully flexible with daily departures (subject to weather conditions). It’s our favourite way of seeing the Red Centre and help you get the most out of your time at Uluru (Ayers Rock) as part of your personalised itinerary. We recommend Superior Short Breaks which feature the best hand-picked hotels in each area.
