Editoral Review of AAT Kings

Beginning in 1912, AAT Kings has been a pioneer in leading guided bus-tours in Australia and New Zealand.

What Makes AAT Kings Stand Out?

AAT Kings operates coach tours through Australia and New Zealand. They offer multiple holiday types including day tours, extensive guided tours, immersive travel experiences, and outdoor adventure tours. See the best of what Australia and New Zealand have to offer, from natural phenomenon, to urban areas, to cultural experiences.

Their appreciation for the native cultures is one thing that really makes them stand out from the rest. Your tour will include many moments highlighting the Aboriginal culture in Australia and the Maori culture in New Zealand.

Because they have such a strong and specific destination focus and have been around for over 100 years, they have had many years to hone truly unique itineraries. This focus means they have many strong connections with local outfits, restaurants, wineries, and other key places you’ll visit on your itinerary.

Who Will Enjoy Traveling with AAT Kings?

AAT Kings have a wide variety of tours, appropriate for all ages and activity levels. Coach tours are perfect for older travelers or families with young kids. You can cover a lot of ground in comfort and most logistical aspects are taken care of.

Their tours are best suited to those travelers who want an element of comfort, good value for the cost of the tour, and are interested in learning about the culture in Australia and New Zealand. In addition they also will enjoy an easy tour pace with time to relax.

AAT Kings Travel Style

There are a few different ways you can travel with AAT Kings. Their main offering is group tours utilizing large comfortable coaches - these tours are between 4-22 days. They also offer smaller group tours, known as “Inspiring Journeys” which allow for a more immersive experience, and more premium style accommodations.

Short breaks and day tours are also available through AAT Kings. Their “Short Breaks” are great for travelers with a sense of adventure and who want to travel with different groups throughout your Australia or New Zealand trip. Perfect for combining independent travel sensibilities with a professionally planned itinerary.

Why Choose a Tour with AAT Kings?

Is your next trip to Australia or New Zealand? The unique focus that AAT has in these countries will provide a different kind of experience than a typical itinerary from a global operator might.

Their tours have a luxury touch without being full blown dress for dinner type tours (and without the luxury price tag!). You might find yourself enjoying a white tablecloth dinner in the Australian Outback, or sipping a glass of wine on a private vineyard tour. These little touches are some of what makes AAT Kings special.

If you’re traveling with young kids, AAT Kings could also be a great option for you. They have a number of family friendly tours to choose from. If you’re looking for a hassle free, premium coach tour experience, led by dedicated, knowledgeable, and fun tour guides, AAT Kings is the perfect choice.

About the company

A century ago, the Australian outback was but a twinkle in most travelers’ eyes. But thanks to visionaries like the Pyke family and Bill King, the way we explore the Land Down Under was about to change in unimaginable ways. Over the coming decades, maps were unfolded, desert cruisers and coaches were customized, and guides were trained. From humble beginnings, the company now known as AAT Kings was going places few had gone before, pioneering new paths across Australia and New Zealand and taking intrepid travelers on a wild and wonderful ride. We’ve come a long way and clocked a few kilometers in the process. But some things will never change. Like our spirit for adventure. Our oh-so-knowledgeable Travel Directors. The local characters we meet (and will never forget) along the way. The epic, goosebump-inducing stories we’re told by First Nations guides. The life-changing experiences on offer – the kind that only 100 years of exploring affords. We’ve never been more passionate about our next discovery. Join us and fall in love with Australia and New Zealand all over again. #aatkings
