Our New Zealand Bus Tours
Leopard Coachlines offer you a choice of buses, from small 15-seater buses to large 50-seat coaches, and other sizes in between. You can be confident you will find a New Zealand tour bus to match your group numbers.
We believe it's important to match special New Zealand tours with specialised buses. We do this all the time. So, for example, school trips to the Canterbury ski fields use our safe, comfortable, mountain-and-snow buses.
Also, we can frequently match drivers with your tour group. For example, a golf club tour could be driven by a Leopard bus driver who is also a keen golfer.

Leopard Coachlines' History
Leopard Coachlines is a family business, and one of the largest privately-owned bus companies in New Zealand, operating from depots in Christchurch and Auckland.
A generation ago, in 1970, we climbed into our first buses with contracts to carry school children to and from the small Canterbury town of Darfield.
During the past decade, Leopard Coachlines have grown to become a major player in New Zealand's bus transport market. But we have remained a family business, now in the second generation of family owners and directors.
We have a highly-experienced and loyal team of drivers and support staff, and our staff retention is well above the industry average.
Our New Zealand Bus Tours Comments
Thank you very much for the organisation of buses for our two field trips for Health and Environment students. Both buses were extremely comfortable and both drivers did a great, professional job."
Cheryl Brunton Senior Lecturer in Public Health, University of Otago
On Behalf of the Organising Committee and Conference Innovators, I would like to thank you and your team for your assistance and support. Your team were professional and helpful in driving delegates to various study tours, and I really appreciated your patience with bus numbers and logistical changes for these trips. We look forward to working with Leopard again in the future."
