These hop-on hop-off tours visit both the North and South Islands of New Zealand.

You can start your tour in Auckland or Christchurch.

A hop on, hop off bus pass allows you to travel on a network of buses that reach New Zealand's top destinations and off the beaten track spots. The buses run on a set itinerary leaving each destination at certain times throughout the week.

Once you start your pass, you have 12 months to use the entire route. Or, you can choose to use it in the minimum time required to complete the route - this ranges from three days through to up to a month.

You get to "hop off" whenever you wish to spend more time in any of the places the bus travels to, and then you "hop on" the next bus coming through town
