New Zealand Hop-On-Hop-Off Guided Bus Tours



Kiwi Experience is a hop-on, hop-off bus - meaning you can get out whenever you want and get back on the bus whenever you want. (subject to bus availability) Passes are valid for 12 months, so you can extend your trip spontaneously if you get off the bus and want to spend extra time. Of course, if your time is tight, you can make the entire trip on a single bus. We will show you the country's most beautiful areas, with overnight stays on beautiful beaches, a legendary adventure lodge and the Abel Tasman National Park. Your Kiwi Experience pass doesn't include accommodation, giving you total control over your budget to book your hostels when you are on the bus via the online Trip Planner. With Kiwi Experience, you will experience the most exciting corners of New Zealand - all the "must-sees" you know from the guidebook, some hidden gems, and well-kept insider tips!
