Australia & New Zealand tours

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 tours and can book any of their escorted and independent tours.

AAT Kings are passionate about providing immersive experiences and run coach tours with experienced crew and local guides. Each tour is led by a 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. We recommend Inspiring Journeys, which are smaller group tours with a perfect blend of boutique-style hotels, gourmet food, culturally rich activities and free time for exploring.

AAT Kings also have Short Breaks – these are independent tours which include your hotel, transfers and day trip-style sightseeing that are fully flexible with daily departures (subject to weather conditions). Add a few days at Uluru or join a short tour in the Top End to spot the crocodiles in Katherine Gorge as part of your personalised itinerary. We recommend Superior Short Breaks which feature the best hand-picked hotels in each area.
