About us

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 Fine Tours New Zealand continued as the leading New Zealand tour company.

Since 2004 many things have changed, but the most important reason for our success hasn't changed - and that's 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 farewell. We believe nothing can outdo 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.

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.

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.

Originally from South East England I moved here in early 2016 to travel around New Zealand where I quickly fell in love with the scenery. I now call Auckland my home and can’t wait to start exploring. I love the outdoors and am a keen hiker (also known as tramping in kiwi speak). Having seen New Zealand from a tourist's perspective I know it inside and out - and can now use this expertise to plan your dream holiday!

Born in Christchurch I grew up in Wellington and then Auckland. From a young age I fell in love with travelling. From trains and planes to buses and motorhomes I've travelled New Zealand every which way. I live for the countryside, and driving the Matamata plains on a warm evening with the sun setting in the rear view mirror is a sight I will never get tired of. With my extensive first hand local knowledge, I know I can help make your holiday the very best!

Originally from the Bay of Islands, and with a love of the sun and the beach I had itchy feet to go and explore the rest of the world. After years of living in the UK and then Australia, with short stints back to New Zealand in between, I am excited to be back in my home country. Now living in Wanaka, I love discovering new places and meeting new people. It is amazing to be back in this beautiful part of the world and I can’t wait to help people discover New Zealand.

Originally from a small town in the Australian bush called Walgett, I left Australia in 2013 to explore more of this great big world. In 2016 I found myself stuck on the incredible beauty and endless activities in New Zealand and settled here! My favourite place in New Zealand is here in Wanaka – it has everything - snowboarding in winter, hiking, climbing and camping in summer! I love to travel and have been to 31 countries, so know what makes a trip truly memorable. I can’t wait to help you see why I love this country so much!

I am originally from Alexandra and studied at Otago Uni so have spent my life in and around the lower South Island. I love the mountains, mainly for skiing and snowboarding but I spend a fair amount of my summers outside hiking and exploring all this beautiful country has to offer. When I’m not in the outdoors I love a visit to a good winery and food is also a passion of mine. I am so proud that I get to live in the most beautiful county on the planet and am so excited that I get to share it with others.

I was born in New Zealand and I have travelled its winding roads my whole life. Finding secret spots is my favourite pastime – which I usually promptly tell everybody about in my excitement! I have travelled outside of New Zealand and nothing can replace or mimic our unique kiwi culture combined with our ever changing landscape.  For me New Zealand is incredibly special and I can’t believe I get to live here! I am so excited to help you see my beautiful home!

I have the best job.. sharing these hidden gems with you!
