“I got to know about Fine Tours NZ from my cousin who used their services 2 years ago. From my very first email, FTNZ showed how professional, informative and helpful they were. They patiently answered my numerous enquiries and continued to give suggestions and always took note of my requests. Although i received quotations from other tour companies and admittedly, some costing a little less, but we went with FTNZ for their quick responses and reliability. Once we were there, everything was in perfect order and they were always available when i needed further information. My 12 days wedding anniversary vacation to New Zealand was made even more memorable, thanks to FTNZ.”

—New Zealand was everything we had hoped for and even more. Our road trip every day we would start our journey with 2 long blacks to go and the open road ahead of us.
“Hi Laura New Zealand was everything we had hoped for and even more. It was a great trip. All of your preparations, reservations, bookings etc went off without a hitch. We could not have asked for a more problem free trip. With so many great adventures it is hard to give you are favorite places but Queenstown, Mount Cook and Milford Sound are at the top of the list. Close seconds is the day we spent on the Otega Peninsula. That was some of the best scenery that we had seen in the country. We really enjoyed our day there and the dinner our B& B host arranged for us at a restaurant named 1908 before we went to see the blue penguins. The best restaurant that we ate at was the Green Dolphin in Kaikoura. There were other good ones including WGK in your town of Wanaka. We did some hiking at Mt Cook, Franz Josef Glacier and Kaikoura. Our most memorable hiking was at Glenorchy near Queenstown. The driving was something we both enjoyed very much. A road trip just about every day and we would start our journey with 2 long blacks to go and the open road ahead of us. It was very relaxing and driving on the wrong side of the road started to seem normal ! One thing that we soon came to appreciate during our drive time, and were quite impressed with, was that every town, regardless of size, had public toilets that were clean and neat with running water. We have traveled to many countries and never have we seen this before. It really says that NZ values its visitors. The B&Bs that you offered all turned out to be excellent. Every place was unique for some reason. We especially liked Peppers on the Point, McHardy Lodge and Fletcher Lodge in Dunedin and Te Anau Lodge. All the owners were very helpful and every B&B served a good breakfast. It was especially interesting to have an ex London lawyer and an ex rodeo rider/horse trainer prepare and serve us breakfast. ”

—Thank you Fine Tours New Zealand, and especially Natalie DeCaro, for making our 25th Wedding Anniversary trip to New Zealand so spectacular
“Thank you Fine Tours New Zealand, and especially Natalie DeCaro, for making our 25th Wedding Anniversary trip to New Zealand so spectacular. Natalie was wonderful to work with and made the whole selection and booking process so easy, customizing our itinerary for some extra places we wanted to visit. Fine Tours came right to our assistance when we were in New Zealand and had a luggage malfunction, helping us get it replaced right away. We have already recommended Fine Tours to a co-worker who will be going there on his honeymoon next year. If we ever come back to New Zealand and its wonderful people, it will be with Fine Tours. Thank You!”

—The country is beautiful and people are helpful and friendly.
“We had a great vacation in New Zealand. The country is beautiful and people are helpful and friendly. We kept busy with sightseeing and fun activities. We would have loved to stay another week-there is so much to see. We hope to come back in the future.”

—I can't think of a better way to explore this beautiful country than working with a great tour company like Fine Tours
“My wife and I spent February 2016 in NZ on a 2500km driving tour put together by Fine Tours NZ. They did a great job making connections, recommendations and reservations, creating a great tour package and over the top documentation to guide us along. Our agent Natalie also made timely adjustments we needed during the trip. I can't think of a better way to explore this beautiful country than working with a great tour company like FTNZ. Natalie worked hard for us to make this trip a very special memorable experience.”

—We were delighted with the tour you arranged for us...
“Dear Michelle, We were delighted with the tour you arranged for us. Everything worked like clockwork, all the pickups were there on time, and the choice of hotels was excellent.It as a very good itinerary. I think we would single out the Ponsonby Art Hotel, Fletcher guesthouse in Dunedin and the Springs guest house in Rotarua as the hotels we enjoyed most, as the welcome was so lovely and the guesthouses very comfortable. We loved the view from our hotel in Mount Cook! We were just a bit disappointed with our room in Napier, after all the fabulous rooms we had elsewhere this was a standard one and didn't have a sea view. It wasn't a very inviting hotel, really.. We found the driving times in the itinerary were optimistic- if it said 4 hours we needed to allow 6 if we were to have a loo and coffee break. It would be better to quote a longer time, the times seem to be based on keeping up a steady 80kph, and its just not possible with the other traffic on the road. The Queenstown wine tour, Appellation central, was particularly good, though we enjoyed both. Another real high point was a helicopter flight to franz Joseph glacier at 8am, when the weather was very clear and bright. Thanks for arranging everything. We had a great time. Diana and Roger”

“Many thanks to Jane and all at FTNZ. We completed a 23 day tour of both islands. Every detail promised was delivered perfectly. The accommodations were excellent, and the itinerary was wonderful. FTNZ eliminated the uncertainty of planning what you hope will be a "trip of a lifetime." And we had one!! With deep gratitude ... Mark and Carol Zaitz, Colorado, USA”

—That is what made Vicky and me decide to book through you and we were not dissapointed with our decision...
“Hi Charlie Thanks so much for organising our trip and from the being met at the airport, being provided with a map book, local mobile phone and printed itinerary, as well as the driver giving us a mini tour of Christchurch center really helped us just relax knowing that everything was well organised. When we were challenged with the weather preventing some of our activities occurring on the days planned we were able to shuffle things around, apart from the last set of events at Mt. Cook. Thanks for taking the time at the outset to provide a non automated response to my initial email enquiry, followed up by a phone call. That is what made Vicky and me decide to book through you and we were not dissapointed with our decision, This was a great trip and thanks so much for making it all go so smoothly. Regards Jeff”

—We very much enjoyed our holiday in New Zealand and have returned home with many wonderful memories.
“Hello Shelley, We very much enjoyed our holiday in New Zealand and have returned home with many wonderful memories. We very much appreciate everything going to plan and not having concerns about any of the arrangements that you made for our trip. The accommodations that you arranged were mostly of the highest quality and the hosts were both friendly and helpful. We would certainly recommend your services to any friends who were considering a self drive tour of New Zealand. While the comments below concentrate on the problems that we encountered, these did not significantly detract from the enjoyment of our holiday and were far outweighed by the positive experiences that made our time in New Zealand so enjoyable.”
