We are based in Wanaka, right in the heart of New Zealand's South Island. We enjoy traveling NZ and our experiences mean that you will get honest, reliable advice.
There are thousands of places to stay and many more things to do in New Zealand. We select the ones we know deliver on experience and quality.
Every holiday, tour & vacation is created to individually suit the client, you, perfectly. Our experts are invaluable in making sure your experience includes everything that truly matters.
A dedicated consultant supported by a great team ensures you get the service you deserve. We also offer in-country support and the latest technology to ensure everything goes as it should.
After a thorough consultation with you we expertly plan and create your self drive New Zealand tour. A self drive vacation allows you the freedom to explore at leisure with the comfort and security of pre-booked activities and accommodations. Route suggestions, GPS and APP guidance plus local support mean you are in safe hands.
This range of hand picked New Zealand vacations & itineraries are ideal if you prefer to travel in the company of like minded people. These tours limit the number of participants which means different accommodation options, exclusive activities and of course a knowledgable guide ensures you get to see the best of New Zealand.
A private tour offers true flexibility for your trip to New Zealand and gives you the security of an expert guiding you all the way. Well planned itineraries ensure you see exactly what you want to see and with your own driver-guide you can adapt to suit the day or your preference. 100% tailor-made to suit you a private tour is a great option.
Enjoy our short video showing you some of the fantastic scenery New Zealand has to offer. From a fly-over through Fiordland National Park & the Southern Alps to the rugged coastline of the West Coast. Pristine golden sand beaches in Abel Tasman National Park and the unique geology of the islands. From glaciers sitting amongst rainforest to marine reserves teaming with wildlife, world class cities and towns unchanged for decades - New Zealand has something for everyone.
It is worth noting that we use incredibly secure platforms to share your itinerary with you and hold any funds in a trust account until they are required to pay for your tour. This keeps your money safe and ensures it is only used for services provided to you! A great benefit for all our clients in recent history.
“Thanks so much for all your help with our recent holiday to the South Island. We thought our plans were scuttled when the government announced a L2 lockdown, but Fine Tours came to the rescue! They rearranged everything for us & our trip went amazingly smoothly. I can't speak highly enough of these guys - they are fantastic. A special thanks to Christina & Louise.”
“Nicole did an excellent job arranging our holiday. The events were exactly what we asked for and lodging was very good. Nicole excelled in her efforts to accommodate our specific needs. Great job by Nicole and great trip.”
“Amazing trip, we loved NZ and Nichole did a great job with accommodations, the timing between locations and activities. It was like she knew us! It went better than we expected and as well as I had hoped. Thank you!”
“Fine Tours did an impeccable job at arranging every aspect of our trip! Our travel dates were perfect 2/24/20 - 3/18/20, not too cold and not too hot. Christina was our travel agent at Fine Tours. Christina was patient with the planning our trip. She was very detail-oriented and accommodated our every need. During this time period, we stayed at 15 different places - we were moving around quite a bit in order to tour the beautiful country of NZ. Our main focus was the South Island; however, we did spend 3 days on the North Island. The absolute highlight of the trip was the Helihike of the Tasman Glacier. I was a bit concerned that I would not be able to do this due to anxiety and being a bit claustrophobic. Christina took the time to provide me with every detail of what to expect from clothing to wear, to weather and including the different maneuvering elements while on the glacier. I was the oldest one on the hike (53), but it was definitely the utmost fun. It's an experience that I will never forget. And, thanks to Christina - I made it! We chose to go with a private driver versus touring on a bus. This was the way to go! Kevin was our private driver for about 8 or 9 days straight -he was like a walking encyclopedia. Kevin was well versed on all the history of NZ and such a great welcoming person. During our tour, we never had any incidents! Every driver was on time and waiting for our arrival. Every hotel was magnificent! This was my second time to travel to New Zealand, and I will definitely be back. I give Fine Tours 5+ stars, Christina 5+ stars and Kevin 5+ stars. They all clearly LOVE what they do and have a passion for their industry. THANK YOU for the fantastic memories!!!”
