After further consulting with you and fine-tuning you can book the itinerary safely online. We then secure all the arrangements ensuring every detail is perfect. Pre-departure we recheck arrangements and keep in touch with instructions for your arrival.
Time to enjoy! Just like the consultation process, we are there to offer assistance as you travel. Our app offers real-time updates and notifications and a dedicated free call number means we are right there with you. On your return home we love to hear all about your adventures and share stories with future guests.

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.

Testimonial list

“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!”

Wendy MacPherson & Scott Anderson, Spectacular New Zealand - North & South Island Highlights, Travelled on 29 February 2020

“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!!!”
