About us - actually its not about us, its about you!
Fine tours New Zealand was created in 2004 by David and Kerry Kettle. They still own the business, but in 2014 Chris Sutton and Meg Evans became partners. As the business grew so did the need to bring in new skills to ensure FTNZ continued as the leading New Zealand tour company.
Since 2004 many things have changed, but the single most important and fundamental reason for our success hasn't changed - and that's an uncompromising determination to deliver the best experience to our guests. Our team strives to deliver this at every interaction, from the very first email or phone call to the last fond farewell. We believe nothing can replace or outdo good, honest old fashioned person to person service. So give us a call and try it for yourself.

A true New Zealander born in Christchurch but now living in the heart of the southern alps, Wanaka. My favorite spot in New Zealand would have to be Akaroa. My family still has a good old kiwi bach here and spending time with them near the water soaking my feet, having a true kiwi BBQ and taking in the beautiful scenery is what it's all about. Give me a call and I can help plan your wonderful New Zealand Vacation.

Originally from Vancouver Island in beautiful B.C. Canada where I worked as a tour guide for many years. I love to travel and enjoy helping others have fantastic holidays. I landed in New Zealand 10 years ago, and fell head over heels for this welcoming and wonderful country. I hope I can help you explore this small and dynamic country and see what keeps us coming back for more.

Although born and bred in Scotland I am now lucky enough to call Wanaka home. I live for the outdoors whether it be hiking mountains, biking trails or having picnics by the lake and there is always the guarantee of fabulous views whilst doing all this here in the South Island. I traveled myself for several years and adored every minute of it so I love having the privilege to help you create your perfect traveling experience.

I grew up in Taranaki and it is my favorite place in New Zealand (no bias here at all!) With itchy feet straight out of university, I left New Zealand to travel and was lucky enough to visit over 30 different countries. Over my years of exploring the world I have fallen in love with travel and helping others to achieve their travel dreams - I am so excited to be back in New Zealand now and in a position to not only help, but plan the entire fantastic journey!
After working in the outbound travel sector, I wanted to plan and arrange holidays for visitors coming to New Zealand and hence joined New Zealand Fine Touring. I grew up in Dunedin but visited Wanaka every year. I love exploring the outdoors and enjoy skiing, camping and 4wd so our base here in Wanaka is the ideal location for that. I would love to work with you to help plan your New Zealand vacation.

After growing up in Auckland, I went on to study photography in Wellington - then the travel bug hit and I spent the next 10 years traveling the world. I have lived in Melbourne, London and France and have been lucky enough to work on super yachts that allowed me to travel across the world! I am back in Auckland and can't wait to start helping other explore my home country.

Born and raised in Central Otago I come from the privileged position of calling this beautiful area my home.

Born and bred in Sydney, Australia but I loved New Zealand so much that I decided to settle in Wanaka. In winter, I enjoy snowboarding as well as keeping warm by the fire. In summer, I love getting out and exploring new activates, walks and enjoying time by the lake. I still love my home country but I am very passionate about New Zealand and would love to share my experiences with you and creating you a dream itinerary.

Growing up in the Adelaide Hills in South Australia, I grew up camping and fishing in the Australian bush with my family. It didn't take long before I had the urge to spread my wings and see the world! I've traveled 5 continents and spent 2 years living in Canada and now I'm settled in New Zealand exploring another incredible corner of the world and helping others to do the same!

Born in Sydney Australia, the small town of Waiuku, New Zealand became home after my family crossed the ditch when I was 7 years old. I have studied travel and tourism and recently returned home to New Zealand after 2 years living and working in Canada. It was an amazing experience but I am excited to back on home soil and can't wait to help people explore New Zealand.
Born and raised in Germany, but now call Wanaka my home. I fell in love with the remoteness and diversity that New Zealand has to offer. Whenever I’m not working you’ll find me out discovering new places away from the hustle and bustle with my trusty dog Poppy. I would love everyone to see New Zealand through my eyes, so give me a call to help plan your New Zealand Vacation!

Born and bred in Wales, my first experience of New Zealand was at age 20 for a month I saw the highlights of both islands and knew it wouldn’t be the last time I visited. Before I knew it, the opportunity to return 5 years ago, meant that I was to move to the South Island to train as a ski instructor in Wanaka at Treble Cone. My goal is to share my passion and love for this country, that I am now lucky to call home.
