New Zealand Coach Tours

Pacific Tourways was first established in 1965 and began life as a limousine and minibus operation. From there the company rapidly moved into the group tour market and has been pushing further into that field ever since.

Today Pacific Tourways is recognised as one of New Zealand’s leading coach operators with vehicles based in Auckland, Christchurch and Queenstown. The company now boasts a fleet of 50 vehicles ranging in size from 13- to 53-seaters, all air-conditioned.

Coach tour operators committed to tourism in New Zealand

Our Focus

Pacific Tourways is 100% committed to tourism in New Zealand; specifically inbound tour operators and overseas wholesalers. We will work to your requirements or we are happy to recommend itineraries and/or places of interest when planning your North and South Island coach tour of New Zealand.

Our goal is to make life as easy as possible for the tour organiser and to show all our passengers exactly what New Zealand has to offer. We genuinely believe New Zealand is the greatest place on earth and we aim to prove it!


Pacific Tourways takes great pride in its safety record and puts the health and wellbeing of its staff and passengers above all else.

Pacific Tourways owns and operates its own workshops. This insures a thorough maintenance schedule is adhered to at all times and all our vehicles are in a safe working condition.

We are very proud of our team who are a direct reflection of our aim to offer clients high quality service and attention to detail.
