Stride Review

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.

Top Destinations

AAT Kings operates tours throughout most regions of Australia and New Zealand.

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.

If you’d like a small group, but are less concerned with higher end details, AAT Kings also offers budget small group tours, focused on Australia, known as “Aussie Adventures”. You may find that these tours don’t hit as many tourist sites, but they do highlight the culture in an unforgettable immersive way. Ideally suited to young travelers who love a good time.

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.

From AAT Kings

AAT Kings’ story began in 1912 when the Pyke family pioneered coach touring in Australia. Starting with self-drive car-hire in 7 seater vehicles in Sydney, we expanded to guided sightseeing tours. By the 1960s, the company, then known as AAT, had become Sydney’s largest tour operator and in the 1980s we teamed up with pioneering adventurer Bill King’s Northern Safaris, which ultimately led to the creation of what we know today as AAT Kings.

The best coaches and itineraries are one thing, but running a professional tour is another. That’s where our staff excel. Our experienced crew and local guides will, literally, go the extra mile to bring your tour to life and take you where no guide book can.

At AAT Kings and parent company The Travel Corporation, we understand that travel matters; it allows us to explore the world and gain a deeper understanding of each destination, its history and culture, through enriching experiences. We also recognize that it is our responsibility to help protect the places we visit and take care of the world around us.

Tread Right’s guiding principle is to encourage sustainable tourism development through conservation, leadership and support for communities. We encourage each of our partners to use this principle to guide all of their actions, whether at our regional offices or when taking guests around the world. By providing grants to organisations that encourage sustainability in different destinations, we hope to maintain the natural attractions across the world that define each unique region. Foundation priorities are set by the Steering Committee, which includes sustainability leaders like Céline Cousteau and Costas Christ.

We're part of The Travel Corporation.

A highly successful international travel group, The Travel Corporation is a family-owned company with a worldwide reputation for quality and reliability, operating in over 60 countries.

Our tours are packed with inclusions to make sure you get even more value than doing a similar trip on your own:

The only surprises you'll find are our 'Hidden Gems'– a range of extra special, 'off-the-itinerary' stops and experiences along the way.

Still exploring, 100 years on.

AAT Kings' pioneering spirit is as strong today as it was when the company first began. With quality and service as our highest priority, we're a multi-award winning company and a bonded global member of the Tour Operator Associations.
