—Natalie did a fantastic job of personalizing and expanding the basic Lord of the Rings itinerary from the moment we made contact with Fine Tours.
“Our three week tour of North and South Island was perfect. Natalie did a fantastic job of personalizing and expanding the basic Lord of the Rings itinerary from the moment we made contact with Fine Tours. The accommodations were an excellent mix of well-appointed city apartments in the middle of the action and small town motels with endlessly helpful proprietors. The Abel Tasman Marahau Lodge – a wonderful addition to our itinerary – was particularly beautiful and its owners especially welcoming. ”

—The hotel selection was superb, combining larger hotels in the towns with some outstanding boutique lodging.
“Hi Natalie, you guys were wonderful in all of your arrangements for our visit to your beautiful country. The hotel selection was superb, combining larger hotels in the towns with some outstanding boutique lodging. What impressed us most was that you never seem to have 'penny pinched' on anything, you gave us great value for our money and everything worked like clockwork. It was also lovely to meet you when we came by. Thanks Lawrie Read”

—Going to Fine Tours and having you plan the itinerary for us was the right thing to do.
“We are back in Singapore. It's been a great trip for us. We did manage to get the honey we wanted from a pharmacy in Riccarton - Robinson's Pharmacy on the way to the airport. Had a nice chat with the pharmacist -who recommended us to take good budget dumpling lunch 2-3 stores the street. We also like to share some feedback... The Amross Motel in Christchurch appears to be the first time your company is working with them. Yes, the property is clean, comfortable and the owners helpful. At the Edgewater Motel in Te Anau, the owner, a lady with 2 young kids, allowed us to check in earlier when we reached before noon. She gave us a unit facing the lakefront with a spa bath tub in the room! We really enjoyed the stay there. However, there was sporadic power outages at night when the water heater was used. I did alert the owner about it the next morning and I hope she managed to get somebody to look into that. But we really appreciated her nice gestures. Generally, all the motels we stayed were good. ”

—We loved the accommodation the food & the drink at all venues. I also really enjoyed dealing with Fine Tours as it was effortless for us.
“Hi Michelle Just a note on our trip through mainly the south island of NZ. It ran as smooth as we expected as we have travelled with Fine Tours quite a few times. From meeting us off the plane at Wellington to flying home from Queenstown we had no problems at all. we loved the accommodation the food & the drink at all venues. I also really enjoyed dealing with yourself as it was effortless for us. Everything we asked for was organised & nothing was an issue. We will be back to NZ & will definitely be using your company Thanks & best wishes Rob & Gail Danby”

—First of all I want to thank you for helping make our first visit to your country a very memorable experience.
“Good Morning Shelly (Good Evening for you), First of all I want to thank you for helping make our first visit to your country a very memorable experience. The country is beautiful, a real photographers dream. I told my wife that every time we turned a corner the view was more spectacular than the last 4 pictures we had taken. Your fellow countrymen and women were very helpful, accommodating and friendly. Each venue we stayed at was top quality and every employee went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable and well informed about their local area. All of the reservations were in place so the entire trip went off without a delay. The weather was remarkable with much cooler temperatures than we are accustom too here in New Orleans in August and September. In fact two morning we woke up to frost on the ground in Queenstown. Meanwhile back home everyone was dealing with 35 degrees Celsius. I think I might vacation in New Zealand every year in August. The only day the weather did not cooperate with our itinerary was the day we were scheduled to take the Heli-Hike in Franz Josef. We were scheduled for the morning flight on September 2. They had to cancel due to low cloud cover but they rebooked us for the afternoon flight. Unfortunately the weather had not improved and they had to cancel that flight as well. Once again thank you so much for an absolutely wonderful experience. If we are lucky enough to travel to New Zealand again rest assured I will contact New Zealand Fine Touring to arrange our itinerary. Best Wishes,”

—We had a fantastic time exploring the stunning scenery of the South Island. Everything that was organised for us ran smoothly and the trip never felt rushed.
“We had a fantastic time exploring the stunning scenery of the South Island. Everything that was organised for us ran smoothly and the trip never felt rushed. A particular highlight was getting a day pass to Abel Tasman and exploring the coastline - it felt like a mini paradise! Kayaking in Milford Sound was excellent too. We both found the stripy thermals we had to wear a good laugh and there was plenty of time on the water. We even got to see penguins and seals. The guides were super relaxed and were very interesting to chat to. We found the accommodation very reasonable throughout our stay, particularly enjoying the gorgeous views we had in Abel Tasman and Mount Cook village and the Queenstown suite was particularly luxurious! We have come home with a lot of fond memories and stunning photos!”

—We saw everything we wanted to see and got to do all the activities that were on our to-do list.
“Our NZ trip could not have been more organised! My husband and I had an amazing adventure. Prior to flying out, everything about our 10 day itinerary was clearly communicated to us, and well planned. Our travel agent, Natalie, was a great deal of help as she took our activity preferences into consideration while building our itinerary. She was extra accommodating when we had last minute changes or requests to our trip. This tailored excursion was exactly what we could ever hope for in a NZ trip. We saw everything we wanted to see and got to do all the activities that were on our "to do" list. From the flight out of Los Angeles, to our car rental reservations, to our booked Bed and Breakfast- absolutely everything ran smoothly and without any trouble. We already plan on going back to this special country, and would certainly book through Fine Tours again to take care of our travel needs and to build another exciting trip!-Oscar and Karina”
