Hop-on hop-off tours allow you to get off the bus and stay longer along the route when you travel around New Zealand.

These New Zealand backpacker bus trips are perfect for those who want more flexibility to get off the bus and back on but also the guided and inclusive nature of a tour.

Accommodation is not included but your guide will organise the first night of accommodation at each overnight stop for you, if you like. You then pay for the accommodation directly to the accommodation provider.

There's time to do optional and included adventure activities during the day to day itinerary as well.

Choose from tours that start from Auckland, Christchurch and Picton here including tours that go to the North Island, South Island and both islands.
