Grand Pacific Tours launches online magazine

Grand Pacific Tours Managing Director, Peter Harding said that throughout their 24 years of operating New Zealand coach holidays, Grand Pacific Tours has provided thousands of travellers with the holiday of a lifetime.

Since mid-March this year they have faced one of their biggest challenges to date in dealing with COVID-19, which has seen travel to New Zealand and around the world come to a standstill.

While this has been a tough period for the travel industry the team at Grand Pacific have remained optimistic as they face this unprecedented period with confidence.

“New Zealand reached a milestone recently, moving to level 1 restrictions. This means we are one step closer to the Trans-Tasman borders opening, and now is a great time to consider New Zealand as your next holiday destination,” said Harding.

“We offer a range of all-inclusive, escorted New Zealand coach holidays for over 50s, full of authentic, innovative and educational experiences.”  

“Although only several hours away by flight, New Zealand is unique and unlike Australia, it really is a world in miniature. You can go from one side of the country to the next and think you’ve travelled through several.  

“We are excited to launch our new online magazine Haere Maito inspire and help invigorate New Zealand travel dreams. In Māori, the phrase ‘Haere Mai’ is a greeting, a welcome, and we invite readers to come in and join our whānau (family).” 

This first issue follows a ‘Dream Now, Travel Later’ theme. They’ve filled more than 60 pages with inspirational thoughts, stunning imagery and motivational stories.  

“A key highlight of the publication is our Ultimate Small Group Touring program, a VIP travel experience commonly referred to as ‘Business Class on Wheels’. Be dazzled by the purpose-built Ultimate Coach featuring only 20 luxury leather seats, panoramic viewing and a level of comfort unparalleled by any other vehicle.

“For those travellers who have already been to New Zealand and want to return and see another part of this special country, learn about our new Top of the South Island itinerary. Explore regions not visited by any other coach company, making it a truly unique holiday. Enjoy the outdoors, experience local food and wine and get off the main roads and experience some of the South Island’s native wildlife and natural beauty.  

“You will also enjoy Great Kiwi Firsts by respected, retired journalist, Frank Morris. Have some fun with kiwi tea towels, mouth-watering recipes and plenty of competitions.”
