The authors, Derek and Margaret Empson, describe their 16-day tour with the well-known Australia Pacific Touring (APT) coach touring company in 2011. The 80-page book has 38 pages of informative and easy-to-read narrative and is beautifully illustrated by almost 170 colour plates. They provide a day-by-day narrative of a most interesting and professionally organised tour that began in Christchurch and ended in Auckland, including most of New Zealand's best known and most interesting beauty spots and towns.
The book gives would-be tourists an excellent overview of how worthwhile and enjoyable a coach touring holiday in New Zealand can be. It is available in hard or soft back.
