Leisure Time Tours is a family owned and operated New Zealand touring company with its own fleet of modern luxury coaches.

We have provided inspirational travel experiences to our guests for over 30 years.

We are proud of our reputation for putting our clients first in every area of their travel experience – from quality accommodation, dining and entertainment through to comfortable and safe transportation with knowledgeable and friendly guides.
Domestically we offer escorted luxury coach tours (day trips/short breaks/nationwide tours) to our New Zealand market. When our coaches are not on tour we also provide charter services, providing transport solutions for large or small conferences, technical visits, incentive groups, sports and education groups and special occasions.
Our international clientele travel to join us from Australia, North America, Europe and further afield via our own inbound tour operator business, Travel Time South Pacific.
Leisure Time Tours is a Qualmark accredited business, a member of the New Zealand Tourism Export Council and the Tourism Industry Association of New Zealand. We take pride in being ethically and environmentally responsible and are one of the only NZ travel operators with Approved Concessionaire status with the New Zealand Department of Conservation.
Thank you Les for taking a group of lovely people from the UK and showing us how beautiful NZ is with commentary to complete the experience. Certainly was a holiday of a lifetime. Wonderful memories to treasure forever. -Pamela

We have just completed an 18-day journey with Brian. Everybody enjoyed the trip and thanks to Brian for the great commentary. Thanks, Leisure Time Tours. - Judy

I must write to let you know that I am very impressed with your business. The correspondence before the bus trip by letter or phone was very reassuring that everything was going well. On the 5-day bus trip “Gisborne Say Put”, I loved every day with our experienced Tour host and driver, Les. He could talk about anything and included some humour. The people on the tour were a nice bunch; the scenery was fantastic, the hotel accommodation and food was excellent and even the weather was good. A great little holiday I would recommend to anyone who wants to take a trip with Leisure Time. - John
